Excelling Through Innovation

This refers to your special issue on chief executives in India (India's Best CEOs, January 3, 2016). For me, the CEO means: Chief of a company ensures and makes its Earnings best at Operational levels as long as he is CEO of that company. The CEOs package has analysed well how these men and women have excelled through technological innovations, especially when the economy is crawling. All credit goes to the BT team. - Mahesh Kumar,New Delhi

Revamping Bankruptcy Law

This refers to the interview with T.K.Vishwanathan (New Bankruptcy Law Is Necessary for Reviving Economy, January 3). It was an interesting interaction lucidly unfolding plenty of information and throwing fresh light on the whole gamut of insolvency issues, jurisdictional infirmities, jurisprudential inadequacies, and the urgent need for complete revamping of the bankrupt legal framework. Truly, Vishwanathan did a marvellous job of drafting the recommendations in February 2015, ranging around 12 existing laws and innovation, to script a concrete Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2015 Bill to be adopted by Parliament. It is an uphill task being carried out with exemplary coverage of global practices and requirements to chisel the desirable Act comprehensively. The Centre should ensure that the insolvency regulator is given requisite teeth, and placed outside the ambit of governmental control giving it independent authority and practical autonomy to safeguard it from hierarchical submission, political lobbying, nepotistic prejudices and subjective pressures. - B.Rajasekaran, Bangalore

A Nursery Rhyme for Maggi

This refers to your story on Nestle's Maggi returning to the Indian market after a gap of several months. (Resurrection, December 20). The Maggi episode has inspired me to compose a variation of the age-old nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star.. (albeit mostly in Hindi)

My new rhyme goes: Twinkle twinkle meri Maggi/ Firr sey nikal karr aagey bhaagi/ Up from the shelves you quickly fly/ Other brands peechchey reh jaaey/ Taste tera hai sab sey nirala/ Sab ke hearts ko jeetein walla/ Maggi hi hai sab sey aagey/ Baaki sab brands dumm dabba karr bhaagey/ Prem se khaao prem se khilaao/ 'Jai ho' Maggi ki, boltey jaao! - J.S. Broca, New Delhi
