On EPW WE write in response to Dharma Kumar's letter (August 3-10). We are pleased to note that by publishing her letter and responding to it in the same column, you have continued to treat your correspondents with the courtesy which Dharma Kumar herself has acknowledged to be her experience of EPW. Therefore, it saddens us that Dharma Kumar has used the hospitality of your letters page to make allegations against the editorial policies of the EPW, in terms which are tendentious, As a group of regular readers of the EPW, which holds a plurality of political opinion, we wish to counter each one of the allegations made by Dharma Kumar. We are fully aware of conventions, editorial ethics, standards of fairness, openness and excellence expected of serious journals. The goodwill and reputation of the EPW has been built up not only by Sachin Chaudhuri and his friends and supporters, but also by an expanding number of scholars and writers worldwide, who contribute to it. The idea that goodwill so built up by a wide range of contributors and others could be appropriated by some coterie is incredible.
