1. Since I contemplated suicide multiple times, my heart is saddened by the news of youngsters committing suicide in local newspapers. Euthanasia should be birthright of every human being and animal.

2. In my evening walk I saw a foundation stone for ward number 23.

The inscription has a name:

Harihara Gandarbh.

The name should have been :

Harihara Gandharva.

Gandarbh or Gandharva?

3. Gandharva is a category of beings often talked about in Hindu literature for their skills related to music and dancing. In aforementioned case I am sure I read his name as the suggested correction on his nameplate outside his office. It might sound pedantic or persnickety but when the name is on a stone inscription it ought to be accurate. Isn’t it?
