  • Mission Impossible in Mumbai? Hope not.

    Mission Impossible in Mumbai? Hope not. January 2012 - The stench and filth in most parts of Mumbai is overwhelming, but seems blissfully immaterial to the locals, to whom glamour seems more interesting. Can we see that our lifestyle is inextricably linked to the underclass, that we can’t compartmentalize the city?

  • When Parochialisms Collide

    When Parochialisms Collide December 2011 - We heard the parochialism of a state senator criticizing his governor and political rival for participating in a Hindu ceremony--but the incident also pointed out that Hindus' push to combine business with ceremony can be inconsiderate.

  • How Things Change!

    How Things Change! November 2011 - Remember early immigrants' fears of losing their traditions, that they'd have to eat mashed potatoes and black-eyed peas forever?

    Why Georgia’s new immigration law is unjust July 2011 - On the face of it, proponents of HB 87 seem to have a point. After all these aliens did sneak into the country illegally, didn’t they? Wouldn’t letting them live and operate freely amongst us amount to a mockery of the law of the land?

  • Anti-immigration bill disastrous to Georgia’s South Asian community

    Anti-immigration bill disastrous to Georgia’s South Asian community May 2011 - HB 87 Anti-immigration bill does not only target Latinos. It is designed to make all immigrants suffer. It is now time for South Asians to stand and be counted with other immigrants.
