The Muslim Factor

By Tisaranee Gunasekara

Muslims can probably live in a Tamil Eelam; but they cannot exist in a Tiger Eelam. As far as the Tigers are concerned any Muslim who is not content to be included in the ‘Tamil speaking people’ category is axiomatically a traitor. In fact the very insistence of the Muslims on their separate religio-cultural identity and the primacy of that identity over that of language is regarded by the Tigers as incontrovertible proof of betrayal.

Hills, Mountains and Sea: The adventure side of Hong Kong

By Antonio Graceffo

Trekking up a steep knife-edged ridge, covered in late season grass, the slope gently dropped off on either side. To my right, the green rolling
hills were expansive, filling the horizon with a never-ending panorama of
undisturbed nature. To my left, an easy bluff eventually gave way to a sharp drop of approximately sixty meters, ending on a sandy beach. Lazy blue waves broke mildly against the dark jagged forms of age-old rocks. Further out, fishing boat and sampans sailed along the point where sky and earth meet, silently going about their business, as they had since time immemorial.
