Amend constitution for providing nomination to Parsis in LS
Dear Editor, Articles 331 and 333 of Indian constitution provide two nominations in Lok Sabha for Anglo-Indian community which was about 8 lakh strong at time of independence of India. But now with majority of Anglo-Indian community having migrated to other commonwealth-nations, their number has gone down to just one lakh which is much-much less than normal population in each of the Lok Sabha constituency. Parsi community known to have world’s admittedly most intelligent persons in every field of life, is the only and fast decreasing population with just 57264 in numbers rather deserves more to have nomination in Lok Sabha. According to a reply in Lok Sabha on 06.12.2016, Parsi population in India has now reduced to just 57264 which is just half of 111791 in the year 1951. Every promine...

Roger Moore
Dear Editor, The news of death of former James Bond star Sir Roger Moore at 89 years, who was suffering unfortunately of Cancer, is no lesser than a Bollywood loss of a star. His movies were always as entertaining as any Bollywood movie -the thriller of James Bond with his humorous touch is most remarkable feature of his acting caliber. His film Octopussy shot in India Udaipur is most memorable for Indian, naturally. Other top of his Bond movies are ‘Live and Let Die ‘The Man with the Golden Gun’, ‘Moonraker’ and “For your Eyes only “He had acted in few TV serials also, he did some charity work also. He was appointed a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in 1991. He wrote a book “Roger Moore's Own Account of Filming Live and Let Die was published in London in 1973 in which he had an acknowledgm...

GST on postal-services should be waived
Dear Editor, While ordinary postal-services have been exempted from levy of service-tax, postal-department has to pay service-tax on some select premium services like Speed Post and Express Parcel Post. Charging service-tax from Department of Posts that too only on some select postal-services by Department of Revenue has been like transferring money from one pocket to other of the central government resulting in unnecessary paper-work and procedural aspects involving huge man-hours. Imposition of service-tax on premium postal-services also results in irrational postal-tariffs like rupees 17 or rupees 39 which deprives users of premium postal-services using attractive commemorative stamps which are normally issued in denominations multiples of rupees five. Use of attractive commemorativ...

Manchester bomb blast
Dear Editor, Sadly twenty-two people were killed in a blast at the Manchester Arena including an eight-year-old girl and an off-duty female police officer, moments after US singer Ariana Grande finished performing at night. Terrorists are now attacking all over the world without any fear or its consequences. Globalisation of world has resulted in globalisation of terror attacks / threats too. The terrorists are brain washed in the name of religion etc that is why suicide bombers are now on an increasing trend. No religion is in favour of killing innocent persons. But preachers of some religion in their self-interest are spreading such an inhuman wrong message and targeting youth including some women and even children of a religion persons. They brain wash / hypnotize such innocent per...

Self-confession of AIMPLB
Dear Editor, It refers to funny arguments given on 16.05.2017 at Supreme Court on behalf of All India Muslim Personal Law Board-AIMPLB wherein Ram was equated with triple talaq in terms of faith. Significantly argument will be of much more importance and relevance in other case presently pending at Supreme Court in favour of Ram birth-place at Ayodhya, because AIMPLB has now confessed in judicial records that Ram is a matter of faith for majority community of the country. Otherwise also scientific research not only by Indian authorities but even by Srilankan government has established existence of Ram much-much before Islam got in existence just about 1400 years back. There is a total lack of sense in taking triple talaq as some matter of faith. Issue could be discussed better through b...

Digging of roads cause inconvenience
Dear Editor, Almost in every nook and corner of most cities, construction work is being carried out and after completion, the roads are not levelled but left with debris on it. The contractors need to be held responsible for this laxity. The heaps of debris inconvenience pedestrians as well as motorists. Also, it leads to pollution in the air which is an alarming subject for the health of citizens. It should be mandatory for the authorities, who are assigned this kind of work, to level roads and make them look as good as new. A deadline should be issued for this purpose so that the work is completed in a span of time. The contract awarded for such work must include such a clause and payment must be made after an inspection by an officer. This officer must issue a written certificate ...

Wrong to make people addicted for freebies
Dear Editor, It refers to Union cabinet giving nod to Maternity Benefit Programme for giving freebie of rupees six thousand to every woman employed in government and public-sector enterprise on her first pregnancy in 53 select districts of the country. It is significant that the costly gift of rupees 12661 crores of rupees in first three years from the public-exchequer was never demanded by any one. Otherwise also, employees in government and public-sector are considered to be better paid than those in private sector. Withdrawal of such schemes may attract criticism. Central and state governments should avoid making people addicting to freebies at cost of public-exchequers funded by hard-earned money of tax-payers. —Madhu Agrawal, 1775 Kucha Lattushah Dariba Delhi....

Sponsored postal-stamps
Dear Editor, Depart6ment of Posts should consider idea of sponsored post-stamps on lines of sponsored postal-stationery to generate high revenue-earning apart from popularising postal-services. These sponsored postal-stamps can be sold on face-value unlike My-Stamps which are sold on heavy premium. There can be some minimum print-order where sponsoring ones may be required to buy some specified minimum quantity of sponsored stamps apart from charging sponsoring amount from them on complete print-quantity. Idea will also induce popularity of postal-service in competition to private courier-service when companies with their own printed postage-stamp will divert to postal-service from courier-service. Screening committee can be formed at postal-department to clear images provided by spo...

Raids -are they meaningful
Dear Editor, It is reported that Law enforcement agencies conducted raids in a multi-city crackdown against alleged corruption and benami properties involving the kin of two top opposition leaders. It is allegedly for political vendetta. The raid on might have ulterior motives behind it, but it is a decisive move nonetheless. This is a sign that the arm of the law extends to the rich and the powerful politicians as well. Yet one wonders whether the accused would meet the punishment if proved guilty they deserve for misappropriating public funds for personal benefit. Most of the income tax raids on top bracket politicians end up with the accused going scot free despite their proven crime. To make the raids meaningful, the authorities need to publish reports on all the raids carried by...

On-line payment of premium at website
Dear Editor, Central government in its efforts to popularise digital payment, had announced a handsome rebate in case insurance-premiums may be paid on-line. But there exists an error at website of public-sector National Insurance Company in accepting on-line renewal premium of health-policies. Even payments through credit-cards are not acceptable. Insurance Division of Department of Financial Services should ensure that there may not be any problem in accepting on-line payments or payments through credit-cards towards any type of renewal-premium on websites of any of the insurance-companies. National Insurance Company should be directed to check its website for ensuring acceptance of premium-renewals of all types of policies both on-line and through credit-cards. —Madhu Agrawal, 1775...

Reema Lagoo’s demise
Dear Editor, News of death of Reema Lagoo at the young age of 59 is a shock. For many not the film buffs who was Reema Lagoo? Seeing her photo immediately her powerful roles -mainly that of mother came in the minds of film buffs. She performed powerfully her roles in films like ‘Hum Aapke Hain Koun” ‘Kutch Kutch Hota Hai: “Kal Ho No Ho” and Maine Pyaar Kiya etc. Perhaps she was only singing mother on screen in Hum Aapke Hai kaoun’ as her melodious song ‘samdhi samdhan’ sung on screen as samdhan with Alok Nath- Aaj hamare saamne uljhan hai’ is most hilarious and memorable song on the subject, perhaps only one song like this in the history of Bollywood. She was quite popular in some TV shows also like Shriman Srimati and Tu Tu Main Main etc. She was awarded the Maharashtra State Film A...

Mid-year CIC-seminar
Dear Editor, It refers to welcome move of Chief Central Information Commissioner in conducting mid-year seminar on RTI Act at SCOPE auditorium in New Delhi on 19.05.2017. Till now practice was to hold just one annual convention on RTI-anniversary sometime in the month of October. Such frequent interaction with stake-holders with Information Commissioners of the centre and the states can provide valuable feedback to CIC and DoPT for further reformative measures in implementation of RTI Act. But there was an important issue in informal discussion where even several State Information Commissioners also wished proceedings to be conducted in Hindi. It may be recalled that in last two annual CIC-conventions, all proceedings were conducted in Hindi, perhaps because the respective Chief Guest...
