SWEET SUC­CESS

Co­me­dian Bharti Singh's ‘I Be­lieve' (‘SAVVY', Oc­to­ber 2018) was an eye­opener! It touched my heart to read how she came up in life de­spite the many chal­lenges life threw at her. The fact that she's made her mark in com­edy, a male bas­tion in our coun­try, is equally com­mend­able. More power to our com­edy queen! Asha Chauhan, Pa­ni­pat

WIN­SOME! )

Af­ter win­ning a his­toric sixth gold in the World Cham­pi­onships and be­ing con­ferred the ‘World's Best Woman Boxer' ti­tle, Mary Kom has once again proved that hard work, per­se­ver­ance and a will to achieve are the only things needed to suc­ceed. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the feisty mother of three! We are more proud of you than ever be­fore! Shau­rya Sen, Kolkata

GREEN FEST )

Mum­baikars cel­e­brated a less noisy Di­wali, thanks to the 10 p.m dead­line for crack­ers set by the Ma­ha­rash­tra Gov­ern­ment. The air, in­ci­den­tally, was less pol­luted too. A pat on the back of the Ma­ha­rash­tra Gov­ern­ment for mak­ing some ‘sound' de­ci­sions! Tina Mistry, Mum­bai

DIS­GRACE & HOPE )

It was shame­ful to know that the hos­tel war­den of SRM Univer­sity in Chen­nai asked the stu­dent, who com­plained of the clean­ing staff mas­tur­bat­ing in front of her, to keep mum. At the same time, ku­dos to the stu­dents of the col­lege who gath­ered in hun­dreds to protest against the war­den and de­mand ac­tion against the ac­cused. When will peo­ple re­al­ize that the more you hush up such atroc­i­ties, the more you feed them? Yamini Nair, Pune

SADDENING!

The con­tro­ver­sial call of drop­ping In­dia's star player Mithali Raj from the Women's World T20 semi­fi­nals didn't go down well with most peo­ple, es­pe­cially her fans. Con­tro­ver­sies are the last thing the most suc­cess­ful crick­eter in the In­dian women's team would want to court, es­pe­cially at the peak of her ca­reer. We just hope our favourite player doesn't crum­ble un­der pres­sure, and re­mains as grace­ful and dig­ni­fied as ever. Kaveri Ja­cob, Ben­galuru
