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.

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.

It’s a private thing,” as Alessandro Michele said for Gucci.

Book Review: “Adapt” by Tim Harford

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.

Clothes are essential, every day and routine, they also serve as tribal markers, as a uniform belonging to a particular group, culture or section of society, to describe a particular period of history, and as a work of art.

Do the right thing do the right thing
do it all the time do it all the time
make yourself right, never mind them
don’t you know you’re not the only one suffering
