Dear Editor,

Right now, how topical is Rabindranath Tagore’s “God is ashamed when the prosperous boast of his special favour”? Because (and whilst I’m no great admirer of him) Martin Luther King, Jnr’s, “We all may have come on different ships, but we’re all in the same boat now,” is most profound at this very moment!
