K R Nayak- A great teacher

The article ‘’Waiter turns tutor par excellence ‘’ (DH 3/09/10) took me back to 1976 when I was a student of K.R.Nayak. He used to teach accountancy for CAIIB Examinations. He took special interest in all his students and tried to ensure that all students came out successful in the examinations.

In those days CAIIB examinations were held from 7.30 am every day at Joseph’s  College, Bangalore. On the day before the exam, he taught us till 10.30 p.m, gave us food, asked us to stay at his house near Vijay College (Jayanager II Block Bangalore) . Next day he woke us up early in the morning and encouraged us to face the examination courageously. No wonder we all came out successful in our Accountancy Examination It is very difficult to find such teachers nowadays. I am proud to be  K.R. Nayak's student.

Words of "wisdom"

This refers to, “Thus spake the PM” (DH, Sept. 7). We have to agree with the PM that politics is a competitive ‘game’. The common perception is that politicians are, all the time, playing with the lives of the people. As for coveting the PM’s ‘seat’, it is natural for the opposition to want it. The PM should, however, introspect and accept that he occupies it, ineffectively, and, worse still, with the support of some bad characters in his Council of Ministers, in Parliament and in his own political party which is not something to feel or think good about.

Rahul’s attack on CPM

This is with reference to your report ‘CPM will be wiped out soon, says Rahul’ published on September 7, 2010. Youth Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’ scathing attack on the Left Govt in West Bengal has rejuvenated the Congressmen in the state.  TMC ‘s victory in the Kolkata Municipal Elections and the impending understanding, if any at later date, has deterred Rahul from commenting over his party’s relationship with the TMC. Will the Left continue to bank on history? It is a million dollar question.

SC, Executive both guilty of encroachments

I agree with your editorial ‘Food for thought’, published on September 3, 2010. The court is encroaching into the executive domain. But though the Supreme Court has confirmed death sentence to Afzal Guru, the executive is not able to act upon it.  Does this not amount to the executive overruling the Supreme Court?
