THERE are many ways to manage inflation by doing away with free gifts for purchases. While shopping, one cannot help but notice that many supermarkets and hypermarkets often give gifts with purchases.

IN the wake of the tragic accident that killed outstanding lawyer and politician Karpal Singh, I hope the government will undertake to improve safety on the country's highways without delay.
ON April 16, I watched an interview on BBC that the former British Ambassador to Russia gave.

I WOKE up yesterday morning to read that Karpal Singh had died in an accident, bringing an end to a life who had given so much to the nation, not only in the political arena, but also in the courts of law, where he argued and saved many from the gallows.
THE sudden demise of Karpal Singh is a sad day for the nation.
IREFER to Dr Ahmad Ibrahim's article "Rethink cutback in R&D funds for varsities" (NST, April 7).

Research and development is what makes these institutions different from schools.
