 I like to critique, rant, hypothesize, observe, reflect–about almost anything worth mentioning. However, in the interest of my in-progress masters in International Affairs, I like to focus on human rights, particularly women’s rights.

Who am I? “I” am part of the under-25 set and, simply put, I like to analyze. I love to read and write. I live in New York City and am currently pursuing my masters at The New School, where I can officially say my professors have out-liberalized me! That’s impressive.  —My other blog, this focuses solely on the Middle East, particularly the cultural issues that occur there. I am fascinated by the Middle East, and lived there for a brief but memorable 3 months.

    Thanks for the “poem” on my blog…and keep up the “thinking, and writing”…I might not see eye to eye with you on issues like Wall Street Occupation…or any revolutionary movement across the globe…but as you must be knowing a certain wise man said… ” I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ”

    Good stuff, M O’C…and all the best. Keep blogging, mate…

      You’re welcome, and thank you as well! The quote is very true and I agree.

      BTW, how on earth do you know my initials?? I didn’t write my name on my blog :O

        Hmm, and I bet you don’t divulge your sources! I guess I’ll have to find the hole in my facade, if I ever fully understand wordpress!

        Haha…trust me…it is not a fault of wordpress…and I don’t divulge anything, to anyone. I am a nice guy…*evil maniacal grin*…

        No really, worry not! Keep blogging and stay classic!

    You have a good idea! It’s interesting to see this glimpse into Indian culture that goes beyond Bollywood films. Good luck :)]
