Why I Write ...

Purely as a form of expression to the emotions that run riot in my life at different junctures. This blog has seen several title revisions that also reflect the state of being and evolution I am constantly in. If one were to remain stagnant in hope of never changing their temporal present, one will awaken someday to much regret. Life is about living, evolving and adapting to the constant changes all around us.

My spot on the web is essentially a journey along with my monologue ramblings of my coherent mind accompanied by the incoherent thing called life. Read me if you like ... if you don't it is not the end of the world. I am at the very least a believer in humility lifts us further than pride.

Happy trails

How Is My Country Treating Me Dec 13, 2007

An interesting question no doubt ... that I am frequently asked in the wake of recent happenings ....

My country at the moment is treating me and how should I say this - the way its always treated me ... indifferently like my being here or not makes no difference to them - AFTERALL I am Indian. Someone the government extols that it TOLERATES!

How my country will be treating me in the future, now THAT leaves a stabbing pain my heart ... because at the moment, I see no future for my daughters here, and yet this is home, where do I go with them in tow.

HINDRAF may have its heart in the right place, but I feel (and this a personal opinion) they have marginalised other Indians i.e. non-Hindus and non-Tamils - but the backlash that is anticipated is to all Indians of all descents ... so we wait in anxiety for what the future holds.
