This is in response to Mr.Pandey's contribution on the World events.He has 
certainly some very original things to say with interesting W.Owen 
emoticons.However the writings are also interspersed with four letter 
words.Surely hard hitting truths and beliefs can also be evoked without 
resorting to unimaginative expletives.There has been and is being enough of 
blood,gore and pollutants being spilled to necessiate rationing of atleast 
foul-mouthed broth;
I'm also slightly baffled about the last paragraph,where the concept of 
rural elite is used.Is it an error where the writer actually means urban 
elite,in the contemporary context?Or does he refer to the past ?
Yours Sincerely,
