ULVEENA :A farewell

In a love filled cocoon. The family that’s a boon. All besides her time and again. Ulveena smiles looking at them. She watched over them always. She’ll watch over them always. Life is but a breathing space. Today’s being leaves no trace. The liberty that she seeks alone. How we wish she has a clone. I hug you from a distance of miles. Dear Ulveena you gave us smiles . Wishing you a smooth move. The heart shall cry till we meet.


Kenyan Asian Woman

International Women's Day celebrated on March 8th world wide. Mentioned here are a few women of Asian origin who have made a mark on the Kenyan scene and continue to inspire many women.


The Hindu Sindhis celebrate Cheti Chand as their New year. Since the partition of India only a fraction of Sindhis remained in Sindh territory which came under Pakistan. Thousands of Sindhi families that were forced to abandon their abode during the partition of the country migrated to India and various other parts of the world. Since there is no state that belongs to this growing community, they are recognized as world citizens and have adapted themselves to respective cultures and continents. The uniting factor is their culture that marks Cheti Chand as their day of identity.

Shame and guilt

We often complain about rape and abuse in the society but we forget to give a voice to our daughters and sisters. Incest is a major crime going on through ages thanks to the sick mentality that makes some men feel manly enough at committing these crimes. We have failed to inculcate the moral and ethic values in our boys and over instilled the same in our girls. We cannot blame anyone but ourselves for remaining mute, deaf and blind. 


Plastic bags are banned in KENYA since September 2017. This is a brave step towards conservation of our planet by reducing the usage of at least one of the pollutants. Although people have mixed opinions ref the ban, they have no option but to observe it. I personally feel the masses must be first educated on the ill-effects of plastic usage and advised on alternatives which were prevalent in the plastic-less days.

Nanalal @ 90

Well respected member of the Asian Kenyan Society N.P.Sheth turned 90. These are just a few words in praise of the magnanimous personality who still attends office and refuses to rest. A real inspiration to many.
