A VIEW FROM AN INDIAN COMMENTATOR

President Obama

Pew Research Centre’s latest survey gives a flattering rating for President Barack Obama. He stands head and shoulders above his peer group in other world capitals — Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin, Ji Jinping, etc.

That is, except for India, where Obama’s rating (58%) fares poorly with the ravishing rating his distinguished predecessor George W. Bush enjoyed. (But then, India’s bizarre rating speaks more about our elites’ mindset.)

What accounts for Obama’s popularity?      Continue reading

BREXIT – What the Hell – Have the British gone crazy? – Uri Avnery

What the Hell – Uri Avnery – 02/07/16
What the hell has happened to them? Have they gone crazy? The British, of all people?

Opinion - commentary -analysisI have always been an Anglophile. Even as a youngster, when I was a member of a terrorist organization devoted to driving the British out of our country. At the time I was working in a lawyer’s office which had English clients. I liked most of them. (For us colonials, they were all “English”.)

Raised by her two grandmothers, her maternal grandmother of East Indian descent and African-Chinese paternal grandmother, Boodoo-Fortuné’s creative work reflects their influence during her formative years.

In her poetry, Boodoo-Fortuné depicts the woman, the sacred feminine, as a hero in her own right regardless of her marital status. This shines through in her featured poem.

In the first stanza, the mother escapes from her morning chores for a moment of solitude.

Mother sips tea in her garden on mornings,
