Ok, yet another post inspired by happenings related with the Mumbai terror situation. Came across this photo – Photo from AP Photo by Ajit Solanki – Daylife from a rally in Ahmedabad by local Muslims protesting the terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Nice white pigeons being freed as a symbolic peace message. While I admire the fact that there was a rally to protest the attacks, I’m more than apalled at the message in the photo:…"Kill not the terrorists?"
Maybe I’m in a mood where I can’t see any good in politicans, but this is another thing about them that pisses me off. When the mess gets bad, quit and leave it for the person following to clean up the crap. One big change I think the Indian Govt needs is permanent tenures for some posts at least, where people can’t simply walk away from the consequences of their actions when the going gets…"Home Minister Shivraj Patil quits"
I have posted enough for today and I really need to get back to work. No amount of writing is going to repair this devastation in my heart. Yet, as I read this article about Raj Thackeray’s response to the Mumbai terror crisis, I can’t help but write. He would probably understand this as a fiery response.

I just can’t seem to let go my anxiety about terrorists capable of spewing bullets indiscriminately and running around loose. A part of me has been alert all through this crisis to be reassured that all these guys are out of action. No luck. Not even sure how many they are. How many are they really? All kinds of conflicting information from the interview on the one guy in hand – Ajmal Amir Kasab/Qasad/Qasab. When…"Ajmal Amir Kasab and How Many Terrorists? Unscrambling Media"
So many things to write about, so much to do. I describe myself as a nomad. The life of Nomad is one that is home everywhere. Many things are happening in life, and some synchronicity is leading to insights about myself as a woman. The role of women in Indian society is all crap, as we know it. Each person has their own fantasy of what society “allows” without halting to reflect that it is…"Gender, Culture and Fertility"
