Your cover story, India's Hottest Young Executives (May 15), made for an interesting read. One couldn't agree more with what your introduction stated - that the country's demographic tilt favours youth. The photos were quite good and actually made each piece even more readable. I just wish you had one or two male panelists instead of a four-woman panel. Also, of the 22 managers that made it to your list, only three were women. One can only hope that more women make it to your list in the future.

Swami Vivekananda once said: "Nothing can be achieved without some kind of sacrifice." It is a proven fact that hard work and dedication yield the best results and it is usually the young who have the strength of mind and the will to make sacrifices to achieve their goals. Really, our young generation is doing exceptionally well in all fields. In fact, they are doing even better than old people simply because of their ability to be daring in their thinking.

Lokpal Bill Dilemma
Should a Prime Minister be covered by the Lokpal Bill? Well, in the present blackmail era of alliance politics, even notorious individuals, without naming any, can become PM. Therefore, it is absolutely necessary for a PM to be brought under the purview of the Bill, a view also favoured by current PM Manmohan Singh and his predecessor Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Also, in order to reduce the workload on the institution of the Lokpal, there should be simultaneous work on three other bills, namely Electoral Reforms, Judicial Accountability and Grievance Redress.

Money for all
The money that will be pouring into cricket, thanks to India's recent World Cup triumph, comes from the people (refer to Big Win, Bigger Money, May 1). So, at least a part of it should be used for their welfare. That would give everyone involved sustained joy and happiness.
