At the end of the day, when sleep beckons ….

At the end of the day, when sleep beckons The delicate silhouette takes away my senses Which emotions breaking the darkness, silences my work ? Come and take me away ….. They walk with their heads down And happiness blotted up Never turns back to imagine their return I need to go to them at ...

We want a mature, patient, civilised world …. not to be ‘trigger-happy’

We live in a so-called civilised world driven by the power of law, which has been formed by thoughtful groups and lots of common sense. One definition of ‘civilised’ means to have a high state of culture and development bound by basic virtues. We have found lots of ‘unions’ which gives us a platform to ...

State security or human rights violation?

photograph taken from the internet as available in public domain Mr. Snowden has brought up the dilemma of the notion of state security vs human rights violation quite strongly.

I can’t talk anymore

When I grew up, I was told by my parents, my relatives, my teachers that expressing your own opinion is a fundamental right and unless you discuss and exchange ideas, you will not enrich your thought.

The 92 day blockage

Let me tell you a medieval age story. There was a small state within a big country which did not have much of natural resources, except for the glimpses of nature. This was a state that was housed on top of the mountains, cradled in the envelope of soft clouds and bathed in the morning ...

Of dictators and oppression ….

Very recently one of the leading newspapers screamed in its headlines “The Last Dictator is dead” and rightfully so as the world celebrated the death of Gaddafi amongst a turmoil burning in the streets of Libya. These incidents are often described as the win of the good over the evil and hence supported by most ...

The scene of “obscene” pricing

Very recently some of my friends, including myself, were debating on the topic of the prices of the expensive smart phones available in the market and one of the common conclusions being drawn was that the prices can be labelled as “obscene” to a common man. That led me to think what defines this definition ...
