The sea-way between Bandra and Worli is going to save a lot on two non-renewable items - 1. Reduction of travelling time from 45 to 7 minutes means, each individual is gaining 38 minutes. Which means they are each gaining extra 38 minutes durinbg their life-time each trip on this new bridge which is a non-renewable parameter (even 1 second of our life time is not renewable) 2. Rs.50 toll fee per car is very cheap, because they will definitely be burning more fuel than that amount by using the old route. Which means each vehicle plying over the new bridge will be saving that much of precious fuel which is non-renewable. P. Kikon Kohima, Nagaland.

I take the liberty to point out the following : You show news at the bottom of the TV screen for our reading, and the same item is repeated I take the liberty to point out the following : You show news/breaking news at the bottom of the TV screen for our READING, and the same item is repeated intermittently. However, the news is flashed and replaced with another one so fast that even a highly educated person like me can hardly cope up with the speed. And I do indeed miss quite a lot - to my great FRUSTRATION !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! In other words, before one can complete reading a news item, it vanishes only to be replaced by another. This new news item also meets the eyes at a lightning fast speed. As you are going to repeat it over and over again, I don't understand why it is removed so fast. Let it remain for a few more moments so that an average Indian viewer (like me and many others) can read and grasp the message that you intend to pass on to us. As it is, we Indians are slow at reading, speaking and understanding the English language - it being a foreign language. I would suggest you retain each news at the bottom of the screen for a little longer before it is flashed out of sight!! ============================================================ I do earnestly hope my suggestion will be examined and implemented. ============================================================ With best wishes for your news channel AND YOUR BRAVE NEWS PERSONS and the team. Best wishes and regards.
