Proud to be a Muslim – No apologies. No excuses.

The world is divided into two: us and them, the first world and the third world, the black and the white, the rich and the poor, the educated and the illiterate, the privileged and the disadvantaged, the favored and the damned, the aristocrats and the peasants, the natives and the immigrants, on and on it goes…like an infinite loop spiral.

Year in Review: 2016

December is the month we take stock and build on the successes and failures of the past. We also create new resolutions. Well, I don’t have any new resolutions. I have only old.

The Perfect Sky is Torn!

I just finished editing content for our 1/2016 edition. While I was working on final copy, this song kept playing at the back of my mind like a sad refrain…I have yet to come up with the title of our cover story. However, I think this is our theme song for this edition. Its’ so sad.
The perfect sky is torn…sigh.

Stuck in the Twilight Zone!

And yes, I have now great respect for people in the government who manage to get anything done – push the paper all the way through to build roads, schools, hospitals – the works. It takes hundreds of engineers to change a single light bulb in this joint. People who can do all that are my heroes. I salute you. You must be relentless, tireless and have a lot of tolerance for putting up with loads of BS and still plowing through all that nonsense to come on the other side.

What the Heck Are They Showing on the Television?

What kind of television are we showing the masses? Are we raising awareness or doing its direct opposite – giving men the license to behave like that on national TV? You decide.

I personally do not subscribe to showing such graphic scenes (that involve hitting women) on national TV even if they are a work of fiction. You are just endorsing bad behavior. Please do not tell such stories. Find better subjects where women are respected and empowered. Not diminished and suppressed. I think the policy makers need to take notice.

Please do raise your voice if you agree with me.

Trend Report: Autumn-Winter 2015

Androgynous style, gender blur, unisex – in fact, no demarcation between feminine and masculine clothes. “On the street these days, you can’t always tell who’s a guy and who’s a girl,” Ed Burstell, the managing director of Liberty of London was reported as saying by New York Times and “Sexuality is inside. It’s a private thing,” as Alessandro Michele said for Gucci.
