Letter Published in KhaleejTimes UAE on 23 June 17  The recent exit of soft and sophisticated Anil Kumble is not a healthy development. According to the media, skipper Virat Kohli and Anil Kumble could not get along. It seems like politics plays a major role in sports, too. We will have to wait and see who the new coach will be.

Letter Published in Gulf NewsUAE on 23June 17,Trophy win, a great achievement for Pakistan

The recent thumping victory for Pakistan against India in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Champions Trophy and the huge difference in runs was a great achievement for the Pakistan team. Despite winning the toss, Indian captain Virat Kohli should have chosen for batting, allowing Pakistan to chase.

Above all, the top batsmen miserably failed and only Hardik Pandya proved his mettle. The Indian team has completely disappointed millions of viewers and this defeat cannot be digested. I do agree that cricket is a game of luck, but no sincere attempt has been made by the Indian team is my opinion. Kudos to Pakistan team for their excellent performance!

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 21 June 17,Action is needed

The news of the tower in in London, UK was sad to read, however the death toll of the fire is yet to be fully known (‘Pressure piles on May as protests spill over into streets of London’, Gulf News, June 18). The investigation is ongoing. The UK authorities should have periodic inspections of high rise buildings as it has been done in the UAE. I pray for the victims and a speedy recovery for the injured.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 18 June 17,Using violence for a cause
The recent Indian hill resort Darjeeling Separatists group, the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha (GJM), strike turned into violence and many fled (‘Tourists flee as Darjeeling troubles boil over’, Gulf News, June 13). GJM was asking for a separate state for them and the dialogue between them and government has been going on for years and this time they have come with a firm determination and the strike turned violent. The government was forced to deploy soldiers and 12 were injured during the clash was sad. Protests and strikes can be conducted in a peaceful manner and violence is not the answer. I hope the government will consider their request and if it is genuine it can be implemented. Already many states were born from strikes and protests, hence why GJM was fighting for years. Will the government take up their call? We will have to wait and see.
