Lalins Column: Hitler, Prabakaran and Wijeweera-Kaput. Who else?

What a shindig in SL that excites itself thoroughly on the cheapest of thrills. An artless monk dropped a clanger at a private function telling the former defence secretary GR that “some describe him as a Hitler”! In SL people are described as honest too. This does not make them that. The priest added that GR should go for it and govern effectively. GR however is still not a politician.

Letter From America: Bangladesh – Unemployment Nightmare!

The other day I was talking with Raju, an unemployed Bangladeshi with a graduate degree in Pharmacy. After graduating from a private university, he briefly worked as a lecturer for a college. Although he was teaching three days in a week he was required to be present there every weekday. The salary was low but hours he had to spend at the college were long, not counting, of course, the horrible commuting hours. So, he volunteered to leave his job. I can’t blame him for his decision.
