TPP: Trading people for profit

The recently concluded Transpacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA) will expand corporate profits at the expense of people’s rights. A new addition to the growing number of free trade agreements (FTAs) took centre stage last Monday as the United States and 11 Pacific Rim countries announced the conclusion of a mammoth trade deal that covers more than 40% of the global economy.

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam - the people's president

Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, ex-president of India, died on July 27 of this year. Although I never had the privilege of meeting him personally but always admired him greatly. He was an extraordinary human being. He was a scientist, aeronautical engineer and writer who became the eleventh President of India, serving from 2002-2007. But above all his achievements, he was a very humble man, a great teacher and a splendid inspirer.
