  Letter from the Editor-in-Chief  
  Dear Subscriber,  
  A bewildering array of choices faces the voter in the upcoming Assembly elections in the sensitive border state of Punjab. The ruling Congress party wears a splintered look with two-time poll winner Captain Amarinder Singh unceremoniously deposed at the behest of the mercurial Navjot Singh Sidhu, who now leads the state party unit.  
  The perceived fallout between cricket board president Sourav Ganguly and Test captain Virat Kohli over the latter’s removal from his ODI post brings back memories of past confrontations since the inception of the BCCI. Barring a few instances when the Board and captain functioned in some harmony, the relationship has been a fractious one. In 1932, the Maharaja of Vizianagram, or Vizzy, sought to bring down the then captain, Colonel C.K. Nayudu – India’s first true cricket superstar – as he had been denied the leader’s role. Cut to the present day, almost 90 years later, and the same ingredients are very much on display.  
  Elsewhere, policeman-turned-social activist Amod Kanth, in an exclusive interview talks about the need for society to be more sensitised and sensitive to the needs of India’s large and growing under-age population and how their rights and problems can be better addressed than at present.  
  Implementation of existing laws for juveniles and children is the need of the hour. Also, the preoccupation with GDP figures and the economy has drawn focus away from those in need of social support, the poor, the needy, women and children in particular, which has in turn led to a slide in the country’s human development indicators, he feels. Though progress has been made, a lot more needs to be done, both in the short as well as the long term, for India to truly regard itself in the league of developed nations.
