It was touching to read of the married couple who filed for divorce, but then dropped the plan for the sake of their child ‘Couple keep it ‘we’ for Glaucomahit 4-yr-old’ (PM, September 17). Nothing is irreconcilable, but it requires mutual understanding with clear thought and practical action to resolve differences.
No two human beings think exactly the same and differences in opinions are a part of life. These days, both spouses are generally working for the sake of a better standard of living. In the bargain, independence often turns into a lack of time for each other and ugly arguments occur over petty matters, leading to divorce. There is no home without fights and arguments.
But one should be careful that it does not lead to physical abuse and verbal diarrhoea. There are always solutions for problems, more so in a family. Congratulations to the reunited family and hopefully more such cases will be solved in future.

At long last, the government, in a desperate and last ditch effort, has cleared various FDI proposals hoping to get the faltering economy back on track, much against the wishes of its vociferous and volatile allies.
Now, it should also get some more ‘FDIs’ for ethics, honesty, integrity and loyalty to the nation rather than to a dynasty.

At last, the UPA has had followed the courage of its convictions that FDI in multi-brand retail is good for the progress of the country, and regardless of the opposition they have had from socalled allies and Opposition parties, they have gone ahead with announcing this reform.
The UPA has also cleverly given freedom to the individual States- ,and I am sure sensible States which are Congress-ruled will grab this opportunity to help its farmers get better value for their produce and create more jobs. The real-estate business will also boom.
Meanwhile, the sulking Oppositionruled States who oppose for the sake of opposing, will soon find themselves marginalised and chastised by their own people and will hopefully fall in line. As for Mamata Banerjee and the Left, they will find that West Bengal is slowly sinking into oblivion.
With regard to the upcoming elections, I fervently wish that the UPA II government collapses because of the withdrawal of support from its allies and mid-term elections take place, thanks to the 2G spectrum scam and CAG coal-block allocation irregularities in which crores of rupees have been swindled.
While the SP supremo is staking claim to the Prime Ministerial post, Gujarat CM Narendra Modi of BJP, CM of Bihar Nitish Kumar of JD-U and several others are also in the race.
Many predict that no party will get a majority to form a government and have to look for allies to support them, which make for a a ‘khichdi’ situation again. All we can do is wait and watch.
