You have brought out a cover story on real estate (Balancing Act, March 17) at the right time. It analyses the real estate business scenario minutely, highlighting the major drawbacks. If a customer could leave everything from purchase and renting of properties to their maintenance to a reliable firm, both stakeholders would enjoy the transaction. This may boost the real estate business.

Chink in the Armour
The feature on the AgustaWestland chopper scandal (Deadly Downdraft, March 17) reveals irrefutable facts about the deal and the serious consequences of blacklisting Finmeccanica for having paid alleged kickbacks. It is quite unfortunate to find another chink in the armour of our defence, leaving a blot on our national image.
