Joyous Occasioniwali is one of the biggest and most colourful functions in India, and it is celebrated by millions of people. During Diwali, rows of small lamps will be used to decorate the house on that day. People invite their relatives and friends to their homes and greet each other with various sweets. It is known for the sound of crackers almost the whole day. Children are the happiest playing with crackers, eating sweets and wearing new clothes. Women from the south of India wear traditional silk saris. People worship the deity of prosperity and will do a special religious ceremony on that day. Many youngsters pay their respect to elders on this festival and get their blessings, which has been followed for many years. Over all, Diwali is a joyous function which is liked by everyone. I wish everyone celebrating a very happy and healthy Diwali.

Why are terrorists around the world still able to execute large-scale attacks?

The recent bomb blast, which was detonated at the entrance of the Safari Hotel in Somalia, was deplorable to say the least. Somalia is known for high levels of poverty and undernourishment. This attack is unacceptable and the motives behind this gruesome crime should be investigated by the government. As ever, the perpetrators must be brought to justice. Somalia is already a poor country and this attack will undoubtedly take a heavy toll on a nation struggling to get by. The Al Shabab terrorist group has staged countless attacks over the years, but given the mass scale of this attack, authorities should ensure they find out who the real culprits are. I pray for the victims’ families and for those injured in this cowardly attack.

Letter Published in The National UAE on 18Oct 17, Rural areas around the globe need support on educationI refer to your article, Sharjah ruler tells book fair that education is key to terrorism fight (October 13). Today, the entire globe faces the threat of terrorism, which can be blamed on illiteracy, poverty and the ever-increasing disparity in income between rich and poor. Education is the key to overcoming all of this. As Sharjah ruler Sheikh Sultan Al Qasimi rightly said, education should be given more priority. Rural areas around the globe should be targeted, as a lack of education in these pockets is rampant. K Ragavan, India

Letter Published in Gulf News UAE on 18Oct 17, Films play a roleFilms can play a vital role in eliminating terrorism. India is known for its filmographic achievements. Movies are teaching morality to people. Today, terrorism is one of the main threats the whole world is facing. India’s Union Minister is appealing to the film fraternity to create a moral film on terrorism. Films have a magnetic effect with fans. By making good movies based on terrorism and its implications, people become more aware. India has wonderful locations for shooting a film, with talented writers and cinematographers, who will make the film more vibrant. As the minister has rightly put it, state and central governments should come forward and ask the film fraternity to produce movies based on crime.From Mr K. Ragavan Bengaluru

Letter Published in The National UAE on 17,Oct 17  Twitter is the go-to platform for dialogue    Your editorial, Twitter is evolving into the town hall of the 21st century (October 10), was a good read. Among social media platforms, Twitter seems to be playing a leading role in creating dialogue. Just look at the Twitter account of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai. He has millions of followers. The fact that Twitter has managed to create a very big impact despite allowing only 140 characters per tweet is laudable.K Ragavan, India

Called upon for action

On the one hand I applaud the interest of the American government for issuing gun licences to their citizens for their personal safety, but on the other hand, this gun culture is not being utilised properly for the interest of the people (“US gun lobby agrees to examine ‘bump stocks’ after Las Vegas massacre”, Gulf News, October 8). It leads to more innocent lives being lost, which is unacceptable. We have been seeing the lives of innocent civilians being taken by the ‘gun culture’ in many public places, and it is increasing day by day. Mainly because of the attitudes and nature of the gun holders, many are in the possession of illegal weapons. My appeal to President Donald Trump’s administration is to completely eradicate the menace of issuing gun licences to their people, not just for the safety of the American people, but also for visiting expatriates. Will the present administration take this call?
