pain is the staff of life

On the BBC news homepage the top story is the bombing and hostage takings in Mumbai. A little further down on the right there’s an item about how people who are ‘stressed-out from the credit crunch’ are invited to visit India to find their inner peace. This pic is from there. Is it any wonder the Dacca mujahedin are hunting down Brits and Yanks? (Canucks?) Somehow I don’t think they’re French.

OK it’s tasteless. What is going on there? I was only ever in the airport in old BOMBay and that was in the mid-80s. It looked bombed-out then. At least the airport did. But that was from poverty, neglect. Maybe some people liked it better that way.

is it any wonder?

is it any wonder?

    All I can think about is Taj Mahal’s Corinna. What a beautiful song.
