On behalf of 8th of March, a vandalism gift to poor Afghan women from Afghanistan Islamic Council and President Karzai

For separation of men and women we need two of each, two parliament two national council…

I hate to call myself as an Afghan as a vandalist as a discriminator and as a cruel, Afghanistan Islamic Council the first and high Islamic Council in Afghanistan call women as a pet to men under the hidden words, and order them that they can’t go anywhere without the ancestors. Afghanistan a country surrendered by bad tradition as always now…

What has Mitt Romney got against Europe and the Europeans?

The unexpected (for some) and unfortunate (for the world) end of the 'American Dream' is driving the US politics to find a scapegoat for their crisis. 

US Elections' Republicans candidates are struggling for words to fight the inevitable interventions of the Social State in the life of Americans.

But some one like Mitt Romney seems to believe he has found that throwing the blame on Europe will be his 'Golden Fleece' that will protect him from more sensible and reasonable…

Netanyahu and Obama's stand on Iran; release of an Israeli spy still ignored.

For the past 27 years, Israel has been trying to free Jonathan Pollard, a civilian American Naval intelligence Analyst.  Both US and Israel have kept him under a plea agreement. Years back, Jonathan found out about an undeclared intelligence embargo continuing in US under which Israel was not given information regarding vital information about Syrian, Iraqi, Libyan and Iranian nuclear weapons/ capabilities. Under ideological sense, Jonathan felt it was his prime duty to deliver these…

A Different View of the World

Dear Reader,


Everyday the Media reports many facts, most of them, did not really exist at the moment they were reported. With lots of information available it is sometimes difficult to decide what to read and what is reality or fiction. One…

A community in the shadows

What is usually the first image that comes to our mind about the Hijras? It is almost sure that it is about people with confused gender asking for money and displaying different behavioural pattern or even misbehaving with people if anyone refuses to fulfil their financial demand. It is just a first sight image of most of the people but it is sure too that the history of Hijra is largely unknown to all.…

A Brazilian in Berlin and Nuclear Powerplants.

My first day in Berlin was peaceful. I visited the Postdamer Platz, the place where humans were separated by a wall of intolerance phisical and psychological, that limited freedom of movement, thought, freedom of speech, and only God knows which other limitations the war might have caused to the people of Berlin only, as the impact it had on mankind is yet, immesurable. Fortunately, instead of depression or devastation, a Japanese company gave Berlin, a wonderful place, where peace is…

Thomas Friedman reveals the Detestable self through ‘There be Dragons’

When Samuel Huntington wrote the ‘Clash of Civilisations’ after the disintegration of USSR, he funneled the odious orientalism of Middle East, Africa and Asia. For him, it was just US and Japan that deserved to dominate. Ten years later, after the September 2001 attacks, Edward Said answered him back with his ‘Clash of Ignorance.’. The title promises the satire at Huntington who was now being judged by an occidentalist.

In 2012, Thomas…

Forget the commies, worry about the incompetent!

It took Romanian authorities 22 years to prevent the access of the Communist in general and especially of torturers and Political Police workers to leading positions in Romania. 

The Lustration Law, adopted by the Majority with the exceptions designed to give a safe shelter exactly to the leaders currently in power, comes too late for a society dazed by an incomplete transition and still looking for an identity. 

The adoption of the law in a form which makes it completely…
