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

fish

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

hows-your-vision

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!

natalie-imbruglia-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!

change faster

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?

kaneez

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.

Book Review: “Adapt” by Tim Harford

Adapt - book cover

Bot­tom line, an inter­est­ing take on the sci­ence of suc­cess and a good read. It is short, to the point, and doesn’t labor the point. You can fin­ish it in one sit­ting or over a week­end.
