Claim about poverty levels

While data may paint a rosy picture, the actual situation on the ground is otherwise (Page 1, “Poverty levels below 5%, claims NITI Aayog chief”, February, 26). That the livelihoods of people are on an uptick may be right, but they constitute only a minuscule population. It is a common sight in the urban areas to see people with no access to the basic necessities. It is imperative to ensure that the essence of equality and a level-playing-field in the key areas reach the downtrodden. The methodology adopted for the survey should be hosted in the public domain.

Elders to the rescue

It is a myth that the elderly are weak and incapable of action (Page 1, “Elderly couple avert train accident in T.N.”, February 26). Incidents like these are a reminder of why the phrase “old is gold” is still relevant today. We need to recognise the actions of each elderly person in our society.

This was a report that was refreshing to read. The Indians Railways should reward them suitably in a public function.

Mr. Shanmugaiah and Ms. Vadakithiammal deserve an award from the Government and Railways.
