Your staff writer John-Thor Dahlburg is a writer extraordinaire! I look forward to his columns on India. The article he wrote on the plight of India's baby girls was an eye-opener ("The Fight to Save India's Baby Girls," Feb. 22). I was born in Madras, Tamil Nadu, and led a sheltered life. Thank you, John-Thor Dahlburg, for raising my consciousness. UMA BARATHUR Santa Monica

Political and emotional upheavals in our country and around the world are reported daily. "Protectors" of Elian mill about in Miami, "protesters" against the World Trade Organization and the International Monetary Fund create civil disobedience demonstrations in our nation's capital, and the political candidates are gaining momentum to tear each other apart. But nothing illustrates better the turbulence of spring than the theft of the garden gnomes from an exhibit in a Paris park (April 15)

Thank you, John-Thor Dahlburg and Michael Parks, for your on-the-spot reporting from Lithuania. Since the crackdown of Soviet troops against unarmed civilians on Jan. 12-13, no mail from relatives has reached me. The reports by these Times staff writers have opened a little crack in the still existing Iron Curtain. BIRUTE PRASAUSKAS Lomita

Stories and images on topics from civil war in Africa to insider trading in Japan garnered the Overseas Press Club's 1996 international journalism awards. ABC-TV anchor Barbara Walters presented the 17 awards at a dinner Thursday night. Washington Post Publisher Katharine Graham received the President's Award for lifetime achievement in journalism. In accepting it, Graham said coverage of "foreign policy, diplomacy and other traditional foreign affairs issues is on a steep decline."

In an article on the euro on the front page (Dec. 29), John-Thor Dahlburg states that it will be three years until euro bills and coins are in circulation and "tourists won't have to worry about it until then." As an occasional tourist to Europe, I think it will be wonderful when the euro is available. No longer will I have to convert to yet another currency every few days and then try to keep in mind its exchange rate every time I contemplate a purchase, hotel room, etc. The euro will clearly be a great boon for tourists.

Re "A New World for Haitians," Sept. 4: As an American of Haitian descent, I completely agree with John-Thor Dahlburg when he writes that Haitians have a lot of pride and work very hard to achieve the American dream. You see, we do not have time to be disrespectful of America's institutions, nor do we have the energies to become thugs. On the contrary, Haitians love education, the American work ethic and are as American as apple pie. Indeed, just take a deep look into the American Revolution and you'll find Haitian blood being sacrificed for American independence.

Re John Thor-Dahlburg's "Those Flummoxing French," about Harriet Welty Rochefort's book (Jan. 2): I thoroughly enjoyed the article, but I must challenge the premise that the measured insult is a trait of the French. My 90-year-old mother-in-law, from Germany, is without peer at the same game. At a typical holiday gathering, she, without prejudice, insults, chides and "corrects" five generations of her progeny. No one walks away without direction on their appearance, the quality of gifts given or their financial acumen.

For much of the past year, two Los Angeles Times correspondents have traveled the world in search of explanations for the sweeping changes that are transforming international politics and economics after the Cold War. From Washington to Moscow, Tokyo and Berlin--and from the barrios of Lima to the shantytowns of South Africa as well--reporters Robin Wright and Doyle McManus interviewed presidents and guerrillas, tycoons and laborers, pundits and poets in 21 countries.

John-Thor Dahlburg's articles (Feb. 23 and 25) clearly brought to light the brutal realities of man's inhumanity to man in Nagorno-Karabakh. Dahlburg's accounts of the conditions plaguing Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh not only demonstrate the inhumane gestures of the Azerbaijani government, but also prove that the Bush Administration decision to grant diplomatic recognition to Azerbaijan is wrong. The depiction of conditions under which the population of Stepanakert is forced to live contradicts the principles that encompassed the terms for recognition as outlined by Secretary of State James A. Baker III and President Bush in December.
