Kudos to mongoose man

♦ Apropos the article “Mongoose messiah” dated June 2, Biplab Chanda is an inspiration. My message to him and all others is: “Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country”. May he carry on with his exemplary work!

♦ I wish to salute Biplab Chanda! We are all God’s children and have the right to life. And “we” here doesn’t mean human beings alone; it includes plants and animals and they are all needed to maintain ecological balance. Mongooses have always been ill-treated by people and I am proud to know there are men like Chanda who are protecting them. More such stories of real life heroes need to come to the fore.
