BABA ALERT! That the fraud baba Gurmeet Singh ran an empire of deceit where devotees were raped, murdered and strangely even castrated for 20 long years is beyond shocking! It's time people realized that babas are also human, with their flaws and warts. Hence, ALWAYS keep an open, rational and questioning mind.
Roshni Datta, Ahmedabad STAND WITH GAURI Feisty journalist Gauri Lankesh's murder must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. It's a message to Indians that the price of dissent is death. Our Constitutional right to freedom of speech has been threatened. As an Indian, I demand that the killers are tracked down and punished promptly!

SILENCE PLEASE! In a clear case of twisting the law to suit themselves, politicians who run pandals craftily took the stand that all the 1,537 silence zones in Mumbai no longer exist just before the Ganesh festival. Thankfully, the HC stepped in and slammed them. We must save the silent zones in this noisy city from our selfish, eggheaded ‘leaders'.

PRAY FOR PEACE
North Korea recently tested a hydrogen bomb, 10 times the intensity of the atomic bomb dropped at Hiroshima, sending tremors to world peace. With President Trump asking Kim Jong II to ‘behave' and the maturity of both leaders being questionable, one sincerely prays that the scary situation is contained.

WHAT GOD WANTS! Every year Mumbai prays to Lord Ganesha with fervour. But once the visarjan is done, the same people who prayed with devotion wash their hands off their once revered murtis as they lie undissolved on beaches and in lakes. People must realise that God will never be pleased with us for spoiling the world. Only ecofriendly idols should be permitted in the coming years.
