Leave trump alone

Ac­cept­ing things the way they are and com­ing to terms with the sit­u­a­tion one can­not change is wis­dom ( Matthew Mcconaughey, Drumpf and the Hater app, Feb 10). Don­ald Trump is the US Pres­i­dent now and will con­tinue to be one for the next four years. A prag­matic ap­proach would be to pray that he serves well and proves his met­tle. There is a need to see the big­ger pic­ture. Why is it that com­mon ha­tred or hos­til­ity to­wards some­one brings peo­ple to­gether? As cor­rectly stated, love for Obama or Clin­ton didn’t bring peo­ple any closer, though that should have been a nat­u­ral out­come.

Hor­ror is my favourite genre ( my spouse claims he un­der­stands ex­actly where this fas­ci­na­tion comes from). Re­cently, I sat down to binge- watch the Net­flix se­ries Stranger Things. Ter­rific spe­cial ef­fects, su­perb act­ing and sharp writ­ing makes it a ‘ must- watch’. ( I com­pletely doted on Gaten Matarazzo as the chubby, young Dustin.) — Anamika Chat­ter­jee Most fra­grances give me a headache. So, if I find one I like, I earnestly pray the brand doesn’t dis­con­tinue the line. Crys­tal Noir by Ver­sace is di­vine: del­i­cately fem­i­nine, with­out be­ing cloy­ing. Bought a 50ml bot­tle for Dh149 from Xpres­sions at Safeer Mall. There are travel- sized edi­tions too, so it’s on my per­son in more ways than one! — Karen Ann Monsy
