LETTERS TO EDITOR IN contrast to the privilege enjoyed by Dharma Kumar (August 3-10) in knowing the founder- editor, I never met him. I came to know of the existence of EPW only around 1970, when a close friend of mine mentioned the journal to me. Also, i have not met the present editor either, though I have been a 'reporter' tor the magazine for the past one decade. Not once have I felt that my pieces had been censored. In fact' the editing had been so skilful that the pieces appeared in a more readable and intelligible form. Also there was no attempt on my part to 'pre-censor' my reports at any time. As my reports show, they are anything but 'Marxist'. About the other aspects of 'ideology', etc, I feel most of the special articles are bourgeois in content highly boring and some are like government hand-outs. This means good, thoughtful and socially useful articles are balanced by the so-called liberal pieces' Now about the delays, etc, I think this is a genuine problem not only for the writers but also for the editors who it appears do not have adequate staff. 'Genuine well-wishers' like Dharma Kumar should do something concrete about this, instead of wailing over the delays.
