Condolences to Arun Jaitley's family, he was a great man
I write to you in reference to your article Arun Jaitley, former Indian finance minister, dies at 66 (August 24).
The death of India's Finance minister is a great loss to the country's politics and to the BJP. He was a soft spoken, knowledgeable individual and a well versed politician who worked on varying portfolios with talent.
He was one of the strong figures of the BJP and a guiding force for the party. In addition to his passion for politics, he also loved cricket.
His legacy will continue forever. I pray for the departed leader and my heart goes out to his grieving family.

It takes a healthy mind and body to succeed
With reference to the story about the Free three-day yoga festival set to take place in Dubai this November (August 23), this is a great awareness drive. Wealth is of no use without health. In this day and age, it takes a nation that is both educated and fit to dominate on the global stage.
