Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 28 July 17,Positive steps for India

The Indian presidential election results provided a good indication of the ruling National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government and its administrative skills during its three-year tenure (‘Ram Nath Kovind elected new President of India’, Gulf News, July 21). It made a good base for the 2019 election. With all the opposition parties’ criticisms and many allegations, the NDA government nominee Ram Nath Kovind has been elected as the 14th president of India and the second Dalit community leader, which is laudable. With his vast experience and knowledge in political history, he will serve the people of India without any partiality and favour. This election result is a dramatic development in the history of Indian politics, for a better future in the coming days. Kudos to Kovind.

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 19July 17.High hopes

The recent exit of former Indian coach Anil Kumble and the appointment of Ravi Shastri as the new coach was as per the team captain’s wish (‘Trio of new coaches for India raises eyebrows’, Gulf News, July 13). Subsequently, two additional coaches – one for bowling and one for batting – have been announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). This was a dramatic development in the cricket world. The tenure of this team is till 2019 World Cup. I hope the trio will continue till the tenure and make India proud.
