Dear Prof Lohani
I have come to feel that the “mother” of all corruption is the abuse of public property. Because very few people are able to suppress this particular type of temptation and if a person is able to suppress this temptation, then s/he must be above most of the temptations. I have come to understand that temptation is at the root of all corruption.
Secondly, family pressure too forces a person to resort to corrupt practices. In the case of Leela Mani, his family as has set an example. Therefore, my salute to them.
With best regards,

Dear Ratna Sansarji,
While complimenting Leela Mani and his family for use of 'public transport',you have also drawn everybody's attention to misuse of public property by higher ups for personal purposes.This is a blatant case of corruption and it should be stopped as ordinary citizens travel in a crowded bus,some hanging at great risk on the door steps.
Thanks for your letter to Leela Mani Paudyal in support of his anti-corruption crusade as well as commenting on equally vital task of stopping misuse of public property.
Tks and regds,

Dear Leela Manijee
I have been closely following the whole episode from the very beginning including the discourse in NNSD triggered by your action and I have also read your lengthy article on the subject in Nepali vernacular daily, Nagrik with keen interest.
