Af-Gone? Will It Hound US? Queen Bee Spells Change, Scripps History!

It is unimaginable to think (in the near future) of an Indian or a Caucasian winning the World or Olympic title at the 100 metres dash (at the expense of a person of ‘more’ African descent). Likewise, the Indian- American community has had a strong hold at the Scripps US National Spelling Bee competition over the past decade. Even this year, the number two is a person of Indian descent. But kudos to Zaila Avant-garde for scripting history and becoming the first African- American (and second one of African origin after Jody-Anne of Jamaica). Maybe an Indian may still shortly do a Usain Bolt. The Buzz is, no thought too Avant-garde!

.The increasing number of infrastructure projects in Sri Lanka being awarded to China or Chinese companies only makes one fear the worst! At $85 Billion, Ceylon’s GDP is more than double that of Nepal’s. But less than one third that of Pakistan’s. And Pakistan is going the vassal state way. So Long, Ceylon. Global Warming and subsequent rising sea levels may not be a very proximate physical threat for an island like Ceylon. But a fiscal one being brewed right at home may not be so.

Mithali Raj -With Love & Leela, DoRai-ght being Daughters’ Might & Ally.

With her might as ally, Raj had struck a huge blow for womens’ sports in India, especially, Cricket. This Leela (divine play) is sure to help parents feel vindicated. How to DoRai-ght by daughters? A Lotte of ‘Character’/ fortitude gets developed among girls otherwise vulnerable in an unequal society. Just as a lot of boys were ‘Sachin-ed’ at birth, maybe girls would be Mithali-ed too, by their respective Leela-s and Dorai-s.

Urdu, the poet’s language – Handmaiden for a regime’s image.

The struggling Pakistan Government tries to shore up its image with Urdu, the poet's language. One is reminded of one of the doyens of this rich tongue, Mirza Ghalib.
