India: Where Citizens Get Murdered And Murderers Walk Scot Free!

If you have come to read this page because the title has angered you, I want you to keep your anger, burn with it a while and stew upon it till you are ready to explode! For we are indeed killing our citizens, unknowingly perhaps, unwittingly for sure and in some case most deliberately because we know we can get away with it in a jiffy.

The worst and the most painful problem with these murders is that no one acknowledges them.

5 Things That I Learnt In Barcelona

Yes, I have taken quite a long blogging sabbatical, but it is time to get back in the groove now. Things may be a little rusty with language and creativity and I may still be under a heavy holiday stupor after spending almost two months vacationing in two different continents, but hey, one’s got to re-start somewhere, right? Well, a Spanish sojourn is inspiration enough for that! Spain is a beautiful country and my trip to Barcelona was a fabulous one. Not just for its scenic and architectural beauty but also for its people and culture. In many ways, mostly good, Barcelona reminds me of Mumbai. Not that I know much of Mumbai other than a few occasional and mostly forgettable visits, but the comparison is validated by my husband thinking so as well. I have learnt 5 extremely important life lessons from the people of Barcelona and just for those, the trip was an extremely essential one for me personally. ·Take Some ‘Me’ Time In Barcelona people make time for themselves. Yes, the…
