ENVIRONMENT NEEDS A COLLABORATIVE RESPONSE
This refers to ‘Lessons India must learn from Kerala’ by Ramachandra Guha (September 9). We have seen the wrath of Mother Nature so many times in so many ways that it should have alarmed us into changing our ways. It’s high time we realise that by hurting nature we are only paving the way for our extinction. Our anti-climate activities will eventually come back to haunt us. We should step back and survey the destruction we have caused, and, then, make a collaborative effort to amend our mistakes.
Mark Tully is right in asking how the holes in companies’ balance sheets did not appear in their audits (The bankruptcy code can set ‘Naamdars’ straight, Sep 9). That auditors examine only the documents provided to them speaks of the companies’ ill intent. The new bankruptcy code will make the defaulting companies accountable.
