EN­VI­RON­MENT NEEDS A COLLABORATIVE RE­SPONSE

Hindustan Times ST (Mumbai) - - HTNATION -

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.

SHAILY SHARMA,

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.
