  In the news story "Church Attacks in Karnataka Linked to Violence in Australia", I had to reread one sentence a couple of times. It must go down as the most bizarre statement of the year -- Christians in India are part of a conspiracy to target Indian Hindus in Australia.

  Elizebath Philip's devotional that tells how thieves ransacked her home but took nothing is really a praise to God. It is nothing short of a miracle. God protected her home. Our rational minds might not want to believe in angels but I believe that they are around thus explaining miracles that happen to us in daily life.

  Balvinder Singh's write-up "Religious honesty" is very timely and relevant given our propensity to defy civic authorities. If only we can show even a fraction of respect to law of the land that we show to our deities it will do a world of good to our country. Great work, Sir. Keep writing.

  Why does your photo caption mention only Shahid Kapoor and leave Genelia D Souza who is now a popular Bollywood actor too?

  Martin Kampchen inspires in the sense that the write-up gives an idea that he is totally in sync with himself. Knowing what he wants and spending the life doing it might not appear a lucrative option but it's sure a rewarding life.

  "Why single out Sister Sebastina" by A.J Philip is a very bold article. The Administration is playing a blame game as usual. The problem is the case was delayed because of political influence in which the government also played a part. Yet, the blame is put on the school. What were they doing when Ruchika was "expelled"? The main concern should be to punish the guilty.

  "Traumatised by TV show, man dies of heart attack". This is a page one headline in the Chandigarh Newsline (city pullout of the Indian Express, (December 9).

A man dies because of a TV channel that presents and promotes unscientific and harmful views to the society beliefs.

Who should be held responsible for this? The TV Show, its producers or the presenters?

If one goes by the queer logic as presented in the editorial "Remedial action" (Indian Express, De 9) the company that manufactured the TV set the dead person was watching before his death should be penalized severely.
The media will, perhaps, feel the pinch only when some unsuccessful writer commits a suicide putting the blame on a newspaper that it had arbitrarily been rejecting his writings for years and been publishing much low grade stuff than what he has been writing. And unless a governmental rule is passed, like that on Chandigarh schools, to establish proper norms of deciding the basis on which a newspaper should accept or reject an article, the media probably won't gauge the bad impact of the unwarranted governmental interferences in the day-to-day working of various institutions.

  A J Philip's article on the Ruchika case and Elizebath Philip's translation of Mata Amritanandamayi's message made interesting reading.

  A.J. Philip's "Ruchika case: Why single out Sister Sebastina?" is the best article I have read on the subject.

NEW DELHI, DEC 31 (UCAN )-- Church officials say they will back a government investigation into Sacred Heart School in Chandigarh, which expelled a girl a month after she had been molested by a senior police officer.
