Recommendation 1 from ‘The New York Times’

Article Name:‘We don’t need no teachers!’’

By: ‘Andrew Rosenthal’

Article states that supposedly Mr. Romney has said that America doesn’t need more teachers or fire fighters and consequently, Obama’s campaign has also accused him of saying so. However, Mr. Romney is denying having said anything like this. To clear the confusion, article states that Mr. Romney is as usual promoting cuts in government’s aid to states and cities, which in one way would mean less money for teachers and fire fighters.


Well, if this is what exactly he means then assuming his past speeches and other controversial statements, this really doesn’t come as a surprise. However, what really has to be taken into consideration by voters is policies such as these that this man claims will get America out of the debt. It seems he is more interested in making people miserable, more than what they already are.

Recommendation 3 from ‘The Hindu’

Article Name:‘Where do they go?’

By: ‘Elizabeth Paulose’

Article is exploring a question as to what happens when pets are abandoned by their owners for various reasons. Article has written about an NGO which rescues animals. However, at the same time the corporation owned place in Coimbatore, which is meant to house animals is overgrown with grass. Also, the ABC program in Coimbatore neuters only 300 dogs per month whereas the number should be 500 per month to keep the population in control. Article also mentions that when the pets are abandoned by the owners, it becomes a vicious cycle as these pets entre the stray population and numbers increase. Further, to facilitate the adoption process and housing these animals, more space is needed.


Abandoned pets are the walking proof of people’s selfishness. Further, what really increases the problem is that people are very hesitant to adopt stray, they just want breeds and they also abandon those good breed dogs, as they age or when they acquire some disease. Foremost thing that needs to be done is to treat animals also a part of the planet and not resort to mass killing. And this is the story in almost every city, as people become more self-centred.
