Iwas really fascinated by the article on biogas installation in forested areas of Nepal (‘Cooking on natural gas to save the planet’, March 28).
What is most interesting is that this World Wildlife Fund project is not only healing our planet, but has improved the lives of the people in the region as well because they no longer have to spend their precious time looking for firewood. As the smoke from burning biogas is cleaner, people are no longer falling sick due to smoke inhalation. The forest is not being depleted either, so it is better for everyone.
Projects such as this should be launched in more countries. PARVATHI SREERAJ, GRADE 8, INDIAN HIGH SCHOOL, DUBAI
The article on biogas stoves improving lives of people in a remote village in Nepal was truly heart-warming and inspiring. Please continue to publish and highlight such stories in your magazine.
It is amazing how such simple initiatives can change lives and contribute to saving the planet as well as the forest. Truly inspirational! Karen, editor
The article, ‘Breast cancer made my life better’ (March 28) made for an engrossing read. Claire Farwell – mother, supermodel, and designer – is truly a beacon of hope to millions of women. After being diagnosed, she sailed through her double mastectomy with courage, grit and optimism. Her story tells us that trying times take out the worst and bring out the best in us.

She is remarkable and a poster girl for breast cancer survivors.
Ilive in a community that has recycling bins but I don’t see many people using them as it is not compulsory. I have decided to start and now my husband and four-year-old son have also joined in.
JAYASHREE MEHTA, DUBAI We should all do our bit to recycle. Well done!
Readers are inspired by the difference biogas can make to people and the planet
