Why should the poor

be in a dump yard?

K.Ragavan says Though i applaud the government’s decision to provide houses for the poor,it is appalling  to read bout the place where they have decided for the same.Wheather it is rich or poor,public’s health should be the first priority before embarking on any project.Letter.

Unfair to speculate MSD’s retirement

BM’s article on MS Dhoni was interesting.The recent failure of MSD against England fulled  speculation about his retirement.The talk of retirement sparked  off after Dhoni asked  for the ball after the final odi.Dhoni is adored by millions and certainly he will announce his decision when he feels like calling it quits.Let us not speculate about it ,says K.Ragavan

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 20 July 18  Tharoor’s verbal bout

Congress cautions Shashi Tharoor after his Hindu-Pakistan comment and the article was interesting to read (“Hindu Pakistan: BJP activists vandalise Shashi Tharoor’s office”, Gulf News, July 17). The recent comment made by Tharoor in Thiruvananthapuram on the effort of the Bharatiya Janata Party, if they come to power in 2019, has triggered trouble. The Congress party cautioned him on his comment and this was the latest development in Indian politics. I admire Tharoor as a diplomat and as a versatile journalist but this unwanted comment made by him is condemnable. Being an educated and knowledgeable person, his comment is unacceptable. This is the sad state of affairs in India. From Mr K. Ragavan

Letter Published in The National UAE on 19 July 18  Unsporting and law-breaking vandals should be punished

I refer to your article Clashes and crashes mar France’s World cup party (July 16): when thousands of football fans were celebrating their nation’s victory in the World Cup final, some bad elements destroyed public property and attacked a pharmacy while taking photos on their mobile phones of their vandalism. This was a tragic episode. Sport should come with decent behaviour; looting public property is unacceptable. The miscreants at fault for this behaviour should be punished.

Letter Published in The National UAE on 17July 18 Ultimately American voters will dictate Trump’s future

In reference to your article Trump poised for 2020 election run (July 16), this piece was a good read. In his recent visit to the UK, US President Donald Trump expressed his willingness to run for a second term in office during an interview with British journalist Piers Morgan. He also, in true Trump fashion, complimented Queen Elizabeth II on her beauty and elegance. Virtually all past American presidents have sought a second four-year term in the White House. But whether or not Mr Trump can fulfil his ambition is of course up to the American people to decide.
