Breaking News: Supreme Court of India Strikes Down 150-Year-Old Anti-Gay Law

Just a quick comment to explain that I began to write this article immediately after the news came out yesterday afternoon. As a result, I may not have caught all of the references to “today,” referring to the 6th of September as I post this now on the 7th. My apologies. I want to get

Just Enough to be Dangerous

I love the expression “I know just enough to be dangerous” because it reflects a total honesty about oneself in the determination to know more about any particular subject. While such honesty invariably reveals a boldly naked look in the astrological mirror of the mind, the person who has attained such a responsibly frank observation

World Tapestry: From Mumbai 2008 to Las Vegas 2017

Mumbai, India Somewhere in the Sunday night blur of news on the October 1 Las Vegas attack, I heard a reporter make a one-time reference to the 2008 nights of terror in Mumbai.

I’m really concerned people will see this as a melodramatic statement. I don’t want it matter of

Who Needs the Soaps?

I used to think the drama of a few daily soaps on TV made real life carry a bit less of the “wow!” factor. That’s what got me hooked on two soaps several years ago–and they still catch my attention in particular when I’m home. It doesn’t really matter if a month of soap opera

June 30, 2016:  With Brexit‘s having captured world attention followed by the horrific Ataturk Airport attack, the following has not received what otherwise would have taken major headlines in the United States.

The World Tapestry: Pakistan – Solar Return 2016

Pakistan, as many of my readers know, has had a very rough journey going back at least 9 years to 2007. That’s not to say more wasn’t going on before that, rather it’s when I picked up on the need to start following this nation. Once a part of India, partition took place in August
