The 2014 Tube Strikes

I read on a friend’s Facebook update (yes, I still haven’t jumped ship fully, I fear) words to this effect: ‘Even when London is in dire financial straits, the TFL will still hold the working people of this city to ransom. We must never forget this.’ It is, of course, […]

Modern India: A Future World Player for sure.

Monsoons, Tigers, Temples and Rickshaws. These are just a handful of the words we immediately equate with the mystically enticing subcontinent. On a recent month-long visit to India in which I visited family and saw some of the sights, something occurred to me. This country ,which is steeped in ancient […]
