Action-reaction?

Sir, — This refers to the title of the editorial, "A slap in Mr. Modi's face" (March 19). On whether he deserves this slap, the only thing that can be said with conviction is every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Mushtaqh Ali,
Chennai

Sir, — It is a slap in the face of all the Gujaratis who voted for Mr. Modi; it is a slap in the face of every free thinking Indian; and a slap in the face of democracy.

K.R.A. Narasiah,
Chennai

Sir, — Where is the insult to India and its Constitution? The U.S.' move is only a reinforcement of the Newton theory.

A. Jesu Raj,
Tiruchi, T.N.

Sir, — The snub has come as the nemesis for Mr. Modi's own actions. As a good Hindu, he should accept his fate as reward for his karma.

Sir, — It is gratifying to note that the Centre has risen above political considerations in dealing with the matter. Its prompt reaction to the denial of visa to an elected Chief Minister is in the right direction.

T.V. Kalyanasundaram,
Chennai

Sir, — The UPA Government's move of summoning the U.S. Charge d' Affaires and lodging a strong protest was perhaps aimed at preventing the BJP and Mr. Modi from deriving mileage out of the issue. Otherwise, why should the Centre interfere? What loss is India going to incur if Mr. Modi does not visit the U.S.?

T. Anbumani,
Tiruchi, T.N.

Sir, — Why are Mr. Modi and the BJP so outraged? Where were they when the Shiv Sena ran amuck, and even smashed the office of a magazine, in a bid to prevent Mani Shankar Aiyar, a legitimately elected Member of Parliament, from attending functions in Mumbai? The Sainiks publicly declared they would not let Mr. Aiyar enter Maharashtra. So much for the saffron brigade's respect for the Constitution!

Pramod Arikal,
Mumbai
