Your cover story (A Cut Below, March 31) is an alarming one. The government has to think about the skilling crisis, or else the Indian economy will be shattered. As for class action suits (Pulled Up in Class, March 31), Indian firms should safeguard themselves for the sake of our country's reputation. Also, our government should frame stringent rules for safeguarding Indian industry from foreign countries taking action against them, and punish multinational companies operating in India if they violate any rules.

The cover story (Balancing Act, March 17) gives a very detailed picture of the real estate scenario in India. As a property consultant, I would like to say you have hit the nail on the head.

Your report on real estate was interesting. It analysed how the real estate companies had started adopting unique business models to sell property, which was once a goldmine for investors. It is a challenging time for this sector, as most companies are having difficulties funding their projects, and are losing investor confidence.

The feature on BlackBerry (Desperate for a Lift, March 17) was quite informative. It discusses all the aspects people would like to know about before buying a BlackBerry Z10. What surprises me is how the BBZ10 can have such a hefty price tag, when Samsung and Apple have already provided better features at a lower price. As rightly said by one of the COOs, it is important to leverage cost efficacy with Android devices and not get stuck with closed platforms that cost more to achieve the same outcomes.

Subrata Roy's concept of "collective materialism" (Jack in the Box, March 17) should be appreciated. He has made millions of aam admi happy by inculcating the saving habit in them. Though he does spend 40 per cent of Sahara's profits on workers' welfare, his benevolence towards the cricket fraternity - giving them free sites, and spending crores on endorsements - is at odds with his philosophy of "collective materialism". He could have spent the money on other poorer sports and games and contributed much more to the poorer sections.
