ASIAN PARENTING – FROM SPANKING TO CONSCIOUS PARENTING

I was shopping at a wet market in Singapore, when my 3-year-old son Ishaan, pointed towards something and said “Mama, can I buy this please?” he was holding a long stick with a loop at an end. He had found it next to the cashier, at a very prominent place for a fresh vegetable shop. […]

RECIPE FOR DISASTER – POVERTY, HISTORIC WOUNDS, AND A POLITICAL IGNITION?

Never did it cross my mind that my home and people would need to be protected in the manner which has been required over the last week.

by Hardeep Singh | First published in The Spectator | President Biden’s decision to ‘end the war in Afghanistan’ means the complete withdrawal of 3,500 US troops by the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

WHEN THE INNOCENT GET CAUGHT

*The madness and futility of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict* Wars serve no purpose – they destroy humanity – they exacerbate human suffering to extreme levels of intolerability. Wilfred Owen, in his 1918 poem, “Futility”, exemplifies what a wasteful by-product war has become of man’s inhumanity to man. The raging Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a heresy and must […]

AN APPEAL TO THE PRESIDENT OF MALAWI AND THE LEADERS OF INDUSTRY.

I for one have noted with great disdain on how some people due to ignorance and lack of knowledge are going astray to the extent of becoming paupers and enemies of progress.

Dreams and Immigration Guilt

Many of the global indian diaspora is dispersed through immigration. We are everywhere! Our parents and grandparents often tell stories of how they arrived in the country with nothing but a few pounds and a dream.

JUST FOR A MOMENT LAST NIGHT, TIME STOOD STILL

The ushering in of a Global Indian 2021 seemed so extraordinary – surreal in fact. No family and friends mingling, no hugs and handshakes for the neighbours – for the very first time in my life, and I suspect for countless others, the dawning of the new year could not have been so different as […]
