The real-life story (‘Please don’t call my baby a were­wolf’, June 20) was just so heart-warm­ing. Shweta, the lit­tle one men­tioned in the ar­ti­cle, is blessed to have a mother like Savita Karande.

Her love for her baby girl is clearly pure and un­con­di­tional. What I also loved about the story was the fact that Savita, who suf­fers from Were­wolf Syn­drome her­self and has faced so­cial ridicule and pity all her life, is hap­pily mar­ried to a won­der­ful man who does not care for her med­i­cal is­sues.

These seem­ingly or­di­nary people quite of­ten prove to us that good looks have noth­ing to do with beauty.

Iam re­ally grate­ful to the writer of the fea­ture ‘Please don’t call my baby a were­wolf’ and to Fri­day for pub­lish­ing it. It is an ex­tremely touch­ing story and what was most overwhelming about it was the love and af­fec­tion that Savita, Shweta’s mother who suf­fers from Were­wolf Syn­drome her­self, gets from her in-laws and hus­band.

I hope some­body finds a cure for the prob­lem soon so that people like Savita no longer live in fear for the rest of their lives.

Af­ter read­ing the real-life ar­ti­cle, I felt ex­tremely proud of baby Shweta’s par­ents. I have now de­cided I will find a cure for this rare dis­ease as I want to bring a smile to the faces of people who have lost all hope. I love you Fri­day for writ­ing about such in­spir­ing people. SUGHRA, STU­DENT, GEMS OUR OWN ENGLISH HIGH SCHOOL DUBAI, GIRLS This was a par­tic­u­larly mov­ing story that touched a lot of your hearts. We will be keep­ing you in touch with Savita and giv­ing up­dates on baby Shweta. Karen, edi­tor A bso­lutely bril­liant col­umn by Suresh Menon (Let me tell you my pet peeve’, June 20). It was vin­tage Suresh.

The Big Story about women be­ing short on con­fi­dence was very in­sight­ful (‘Why women lack con­fi­dence’, June 20). What amazed me even more was the fact that so many suc­cess­ful women con­tinue to face bouts of self-doubt. My per­sonal opin­ion is that this is mainly be­cause women tend to give their fam­ily, friends and col­leagues more pri­or­ity than they give them­selves and there­fore end up be­ing diplo­matic and gen­tle. And it is this soft at­ti­tude that projects them as weak and low in con­fi­dence.

Iloved the ar­ti­cle on why women’s con­fi­dence lev­els are lower than men’s. I scanned it and cir­cu­lated it among all my fe­male col­leagues, rel­a­tives and friends. What was sur­pris­ing was they all agreed that their con­fi­dence lev­els are lower than their male coun­ter­parts. Their rea­son? Women worry about the con­se­quences of their de­ci­sions far more than the men and are hence scared to rock the boat. I won­der how true that is?

EL­IZ­A­BETH JOHN, VIA EMAIL This ar­ti­cle cer­tainly got both sexes talk­ing – read who is the hap­pier gen­der on page 22.

Our con­fi­dence ar­ti­cle got you think­ing…

A mum in a mil­lion!
