The heart-wrenching story of howWayne Ingram helped little Stefan (‘Saving Stefan’, June 27) brought tears to my eyes.
Reading this article restored my faith in humanity. Wayne has cared for him just like a true father would. The matches, charity drives and parties that he organised to collect the money for Stefan’s surgery were all worth it. Without doubt he is Stefan’s godfather! I hope this boy grows up to become successful.
Both Stefan andWayne have earned immense respect from me for their bravery, courage and determination.
I wish Stefan the best of luck in life!
The real-life article in the June 27 issue, ‘Saving Stefan’ was truly an inspiration. The world could do with more people likeWayne Ingram, who in spite of being a stranger to Stefan, decided to make a difference in the boy’s life. A very sweet gesture. Wayne has inspired me to do something to bring a smile to the faces of people who have not been as lucky as I am.
Way to goWayne Ingram. We need kind citizens like you. ABHIRAMI BIJU NAIR, GRADE 6, DELHI PRIVATE SCHOOL, SHARJAH

As a woman I was pleased to read the article ‘The pursuit of happiness’ (June 27) as it confirmed what I’d always believed was true – women are a happier lot than men. But what got me thinking was the insight by one of the experts, who said that men find happiness in being part of a club. That explains my husband’s wish to spend more time with his friends rather than take me shopping!
This also means if I want my husband to be happy, I need to let him have his time with his friends and stop expecting him to accompany me on my shopping spree instead.
I wonder if he’d still be happy if I were to suggest that he give me his credit card and then go with his friends? Hahaha.

That’s naughty, Sneha!
Just when I was looking for new ideas for salads for iftar, Friday, my favourite magazine, published recipes that were wholesome, fuss-free and really refreshing for summer (‘Fresh ideas’, June 27). The bow-tie pasta with basil and walnut pesto is now a family favourite. I am going to make a big batch of the pesto and use it as a marinade as well.
FEROZA AHMAD, VIA EMAIL I’m glad Friday is instrumental in making your iftar menu flavourful.
Our female readers are glad to know they’re the happier l0t
