In the absence of immediate government assistance, ordinary citizens had to band together ...

Sharing thoughts, for the New YearWe never get to choose how we start out in life. And neither, we get to choose the day we are born or the family we are born into, what we are named at birth, what country we are born in, and we do not get to choose our ancestry. All these things are predetermined ...

This is Science. Shut up!I begin this piece with a painful story. A few years ago, Larry Nassar was a wonderful doctor in the US, because everyone said so. The little girls who were sent to him for treatment, were told it was an honour. Parents were told it was a sign of their greatness, if this doctor would ...

Oh, the relentless human spirit...It is really important for each one of us, to understand human emotions. We know this to be a powerful feeling-such as joy, sadness, fear, or anger that moves us all the times. Life's experiences create and make us live, not just exist.

Carrying the torch....On the way back, misfortune favoured the braves. We were stopped at an intersection by a police sergeant, who looked smilingly at the two novices, and asked if we carried any driving permits. I tried to explain, we were allowed to ride together.

Carrying the torch....Fate again, had forced me to leave Dhaka in another direction-to newer, and barren pastures. I managed to reach Karachi, an unfriendly city, which hosted me for the next two decades.

Carrying the torch....Friendship is a gift from Heavens. When allowed to prevail over a lifetime, it transforms itself into God's blessing. A few days ago, my good friend HQ, from school days had wished me well, in a touching email from Dhaka.

Just one step....at a time!America's nightmares have continued, and by no means are these expected to end soon! The presidential election may be over, and the process for a peaceful transition of power may be underway. But we are far from being freed of the trauma we have been going through as a nation.

Problem solving does not end a crisis....One of the things I love about old cities like Lahore, Calcutta or Dhaka is what I call the availability of resident 'eccentrics'. They are outstanding, outspoken group of people who have lived a full life and now, love to play philosophers- in-retirement. Unlike the retired bureaucrats, they are the ones rarely invoke nostalgia. There ...
