Regarding the story “1919 massacre in Amritsar remembered” in the April 14 edition, the U.K. government has just missed the last bus to India and a golden opportunity to heal the wounds of the past.

We Indians have forgiven them, or at least, we should forgive them for our own sake, but we will not or should not forget. The article mentions that “the number of casualties is unclear, with colonial-era records showing about 400 deaths, while Indian figures put the number at closer to 1,000.”
