Your com­ments and feed­back.

The big story in this week’s Fri­day on the two world-class box­ers (‘Rum­ble in Dubai’, June 28) took me by sur­prise. Usu­ally the mag­a­zine has hard-hit­ting is­sues that af­fect our lives in some way or an­other in the be­gin­ning of the mag­a­zine, but this time it was dif­fer­ent. I am not much of a fan of the sport so thought of skip­ping the ar­ti­cle, but when I read the quotes from the ath­letes, I couldn’t re­sist read­ing on.

When I fin­ished read­ing the ar­ti­cle I re­alised that at the end of the day, be­hind all those mus­cles and tough looks, the box­ers have the same heart that beats for their fam­i­lies and loved ones, fear­ing for their wel­fare and liv­ing for them.

The author cap­tured the per­son be­hind the per­sona of th­ese toughlook­ing ath­letes beau­ti­fully. It is what I call the Fri­day touch! Loved it.
