    Ms Indu Jain - being a lady, an educated lady, a resourceful, educated lady you have allowed TOI to stoop so low - how can you tolerate such vulgar, perverse articles on TOI? It has become worse than the worst tabloid with only emphasis on vulgar sex and sexual innuendos in one form or another. Are you all such a sick family? Dont you care one bit on how negatively it impacts the youth of our nation? Is this country India not your country?

    I have met Mrs Indu Jain personally and have the greatest regards for her. She is a very deeply religous person and has nothing to do with the vulgar articles on Times of India.
    Why blame TOI? Is not Asian Age, The Telegraph responsible also? If you want to point your finger then point it to everyone and NOT a lady. Let her live in peace. The times she had to pass through when her husband Shri Ashok Jain expired has already has had changed her lifestyle completely.

    yesterday, witnessed a horrific event. This guy gets into an ugly brawl publicly scaring everyone around him and then threatens everyone that he heads TOI and that if anyone tries to argue with him, he will use his powers! Does heading TOI empower people in this manner? Shameful! No point if the chairperson has values if her company sets such a bad example in public! Disgrace!!
