up be­fore a ter­ri­ble war breaks out in this volatile re­gion. THOMAS ED­MUNDS CHEN­NAI

FIFA World Cup 2018 wit­nessed the emer­gence of new teams that hum­bled es­tab­lished teams (“A cup­ful of sur­prises”, Au­gust 17). The crown­ing of France as cham­pion was the cul­mi­na­tion of the team’s month-long stel­lar all­round per­for­mance. The fi­nale proved to be a bat­tle of equals and was a vis­ual treat for foot­ball lovers.

There are bright jour­nal­ists who are ded­i­cated to the pro­fes­sion and whose ef­forts go un­sung. Such jour­nal­ists, who work for small pub­li­ca­tions, should also be writ­ten about. The plus point for jour­nal­ists in the U.S. is that they do not have to face in­come tax raids or lynch mobs. One has seen what can hap­pen to jour­nal­ists in Pak­istan, where they can get killed or have their com­put­ers and phones taken away by armed men and where they have to get them­selves re­lo­cated to a lib­eral nation for their own safety.
