A gift for the poor
Coaching for the IIT entrance test has become a big business, and as such unaffordable for many. Anand Kumar is a godsend for underprivileged aspirants. He provides free food, lodging and study material He also promotes secularism and unity. His globally acclaimed feat is a sad commentary on the state of education in the country.

Nothing to learn
‘Reverse Swing: The Charleston Killings’ (Tunku Varadarajan, IE, June 21) left me baffled. The writer’s intent in comparing the reaction to the killings in Charleston to so-called “public perceptions and attitudes” towards Muslims in India was perplexing. Yes, India has its problems, in the way we treat not just Muslims but also people of different castes and socio-economic backgrounds, not to mention women. We have a lot to learn, but I doubt that we have anything to learn from the Charleston massacre except that intolerance runs deep, everywhere.

Stop kidding
This refers to the editorial ‘No place for kids’ (IE, June 22). Instead of a generalised interpretation of the proposed move to try “kids” between 16 and 18 accused of “heinous” crimes as adults, the matter should be seriously considered in its entirety. The Indian Express presents only one side of the story, as it does not make any mention of the inherent fundamental rights of victims. One wishes the media dropped its preconceived notion that these perverted minds could be actually “transformed”.

Uninspiring loss
The Indian cricket team has hit a new low by losing its first one-day series against Bangladesh. Skipper M.S. Dhoni appears out of touch with the baton and the willow. His lack of motivation was reflected in his uninspiring captaincy. While Dhoni has spelled out his priorities, the BCCI needs to quickly announce the name of the new coach.
