Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.
Too much going down to stay quiet, now all of us have to rise up and speak truth to power.

There has to be more to us than dhal roti and Nokia phones...

Corporate Manslaughter

"Bhopal isn't only about charred lungs, poisoned kidneys
and deformed foetuses. Its also about corporate crime,
multinational skullduggery, injustice, dirty deals, medical
malpractice, corruption, callousness and contempt for
the poor..."

Outlook India 7 Oct 2002

Been supporting this campaign since 1984 and have
even been on TV a few years back talking about it.
Bhopal was the site of the biggest chemical accident
in modern history. Half a million people were exposed
to a leak of methyl isocyanate and approx 20,000 have
died so far and 120,000 are still affected.

Nuff respect and pyar for those on da march & hunger
strike. Indian gov and US gov have continued to collude
shamelessly and Union Carbide has never been
properly indicted.

April 18 2006, 7806 days without justice. Compensation
received by survivors averages 6.5 cents per day. See
what 6.5 cents buys in Bhopal:here

For my Mum

(viewed 1161 times)
My Mum died exactly 10 yrs ago today.
She had lung cancer which she fought
against till da very end. Strange how
quickly time flies - my kids are growing
up without her presence in their lives,
and my Dad well he just about copes.
So much has happened and so many
what ifs but life as ever goes on.

Panic stricken

(viewed 1810 times)
These ducks come and visit me at work when its raining.
Of course given da times we're in this gets me thinking
'bout bird flu and stuff. Pandemic? epidemic? I don't know
but there seems to be alot of fuss about something that
worldwide has caused a hundred odd deaths.Diseases
like cholera and malaria claim that many lives in da time
it has taken me to type this. Whats da problem? Is it
'cos we in da West have been so wealthy enough to
innoculate ourselves against the most common
diseases that when something comes along it catches
us by surprise. All of a sudden we're vulnerable too
which probably freaks peeps out a little.But there has
to be a sense of proportion - if this thing kills like they
say it will it will kill more people in da developing
world then it will us. Apart from the ducks outside my
place, the odd birdcage and poultry farmers I don't
recall too many of us living so close to birds on a
day to day basis. Of course they want you to panic
so you will trust them more and be obedient in the
face of an impending public health 'scare'. But
somethings about this don't sit right wit me.

Car crash scenario

(viewed 2149 times)
Renacted a Car accident at my Youth Centre as part
of some Road Safety work we're doing with local youts.
Pretty full on with a group of lads being in both vehicles
wearing safety clothing being cut ot vehicles by the fire
brigade and paramedics.Shock tactics that got a few
locals worried but if it stops a few joyriders (such an
ironic term) killing someone I'm happy.
