NEITHER BE AFRAID; NOR GIVE UP

Seven months since writing my own blog, the Wuhan Virus that caused this unprecedented global pandemic shows no signs of letting go its grip on humankind. After exporting death and ill health via Covid 19 worldwide, instead of an apology and truth, China has added to its reputation of 'mean & untruthful big-bully' by trying … Continue reading NEITHER BE AFRAID; NOR GIVE UP

A PATRIOT KEEPS THE FAITH

I wait in a comfortable hospital, trying to write this piece, while Girish goes through a series of extensive tests spread over 3 days for his medical review. It is one year since his without-any-explanation heart attack after Akshay left.
