I couldn't believe that he was telling me that it was ok if I wasn't moved by over half a million people that died in his community.
As you can tell, Arek is an… Continue

Capitalism or Socialism will not construct on its original shape designed and thought by its founders.

I hope future governments will be more focused towards social… Continue

In our Religion: Peacebuilding in Multicultural Societies Course here at the Mindanao Peacebuilding Institute (MPI) we examined five different kinds of interactions or dialogues with persons of different cultures or religions.
The first is the dialogue of life where people live as neighbors, primarily concerned with daily interactions, the joys and sorrows that are the ebb and flow of life. Next is the dialogue of action or it is sometimes called the dialogue of hands. Persons of… Continue

Dalit Problems and Transformation
India is a good and interesting example of democratic country in Asia. It’s a country with Hindu devotee majority, but it has a moslem President and Sikh Prime Minister.
But India also an interesting example, how weak a good constitution facing a tradition legitimated by faith and scripture. How barren state law in the hand of upper caste and upper class.

THE JOURNEY LESS TAKEN
THE ROAD NOT TAKEN – ROBERT FROST
TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step… Continue
