Christianity and Islam do not have caste system. Christians and Muslims who practise caste system go against their religions. In Christianity all are children of God. In Islam all are slaves of God.

India should not interfere in Sri Lanka. LTTE wants independent Tamil Eelam. Sri Lanka is opposed to it. No compromise is possible. Peace efforts are bound to fail. Humanitarian crisis is not the reason for interference. It is for the UN to interfere.

In Bombay accidents take place and people who sleep on pavements die or get injured. Driving without observing speed limits and traffic rules can result in death and injury. Drunken driving is dangerous. Law regarding permits for drinking is not enforced. Legal age for drinking is 25 or 26 and it should not reduced. Pavements are not for sleeping. Contractors should not bring labourers from distant places and put them on pavements. Bombay Archdiocese should let law take its course. Getting involved in cases will divert its energies from its missions.
