Of men and mice (January 22) made for stimulating Monday morning read. It is only expected that there would be a hue and cry over the issue in the UK. But at the end of the day, it must be realised that the scientists are only trying to find cures to serious diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. After all, searching for new frontiers is what keeps mankind going. Otherwise how will science progress'

This refers to your wonderful article, Puff of controversy (January 22). I really don’t see why smokers should not be penalised thus. After all, why should anyone take the responsibility for someone with a habit that is best dumped' In this regard, nothing can be more ridiculous than comparing sports-related injuries with smoking hazards. Moreover, smokers should always be made aware of their disgusting habit, whenever and wherever possible, so that passive smoking can be avoided.

Apple’s bosses might not have dreamt it, but it’s true. Not everyone is exactly ga-ga about their new iPhone (What’s all the excitement about' January 22). After all, why should everyone look to the US for everything' Japan, for one, is way ahead as far as cellphone technology is concerned. It was good to read something against the grain.

I was disappointed to see Brainstorming missing in last week’s edition of KnowHow. The column happens to be my favourite. Brainstormers like me look forward to seeing the solution to the previous week’s puzzle. I hope you will not disappoint us again.
