I have no hesitation in advocating the idea that Daivid Hopkins be granted Indian citizenship at the earliest (The Englishman whose heart beats for India, Feb 11). In fact, I would be delighted to treat him as my own brother, and accommodate him at my house, which is currently under construction in Kerala, India. That is to say, when I return to India from Sharjah, UAE, in the not-too-distant future.

I am also confident that Section 5 (1) of the Indian Citizenship Act of 1955 will be suitably amended to accord Indian citizenship to Daivid.

That’s right, and I mean it.
