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.

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!
