"Sometimes right, Sometimes wrong", "Boys are boys will make the mistake", "Just for a MINOR crime, you want us to hang the BOY" - these are the replies given by the elders when told about the most odious crime of their boys. Despite of knowing that their "future" has put hands on someone's "honor" still say so. They know their boy's "minor" crime has costed someone lifetime happiness yet they remain clammed up. Instead, they become equal partners in this odious crime by pressurizi...

The workshop attracted a lot of attention, especially...

With the advent and reliance on nature's fluid (crude oil), our lives and environment have become plagued with all manner of pains- from oil spills, to gas flares to land grabs to deforestation to environmental degradation, from degradation to the loss of biodiversities from loss of biodiversities to starvation and death and weather / climate changes. All of this happens because we fail to play safe with that which nature has given to us (natural resources). We cannot explain t...
