THE WINNERS OF RS 3,000 ARE... FACE OF THE DEVIL

The recent killings of innocent villagers in Nandigram under the rule of the Left Front government has revealed the devil under the veil. Since 1977, they have been breaking the backbone of industries in the name of trade unionist movements. Now suddenly we find them the messiahs of industrialisation. When Buddhadeb Bhattacharya took over as the Chief Minister of West Bengal, we a saw flicker of hope. This man is the nephew of the great poet Sukanto Bhattacharya. Sukanto wrote for the working class. Buddhadeb Babu loves to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez, loves the plays of Samuel Beckett and enjoys Fedrico Fellini’s films. A man of fine taste. But he proved us wrong. He has proved that power tends to corrupt. All the stories of autocrats have a sad ending. Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Nicolae Ceausescu are a few names to make the point. We may add another name to this list, Buddhadeb Bhattacharya.

Via email GREAT INDIAN TAMASHA

This is with reference to the cover story The battle for Uttar Pradesh. The polls could only see either a farewell of present government or the entry of another corrupt government. Any party contesting the elections has no real political agenda for the development of the State. In other words, the whole tamasha, organised at the expense of exchequer’s money, could at best rope in other unprincipled alliances after the election.

Allahabad THE WINNERS OF RS 3,000 ARE... SELECTING RIGHT ONES

This is with reference to Kiran More’s Rear Window column on selecting the players for the Indian team. However, it seemed that he was just looking at one side of the coin and blamed the media for making a mountain of a minor issue. Any Indian, who follows cricket, knows that the selction panel has been biased. Dropping Sourav Ganguly was one just one of the controversial decisions. At the moment there is no transparency in the selection process. Players’ selection on the formula of giving equal representation to each region should be discouraged. The process should be result-oriented. Otherwise we will see undeserving players representing India and the selectors keep on making wrong decisions.
