The Festival of Arts Water and Earth

Promoting a festival as an educational strategy, it may be an unusual idea, but also a great opportunity to help transform the lives of children, youth and women and rural communities. Something is not right in a country like Colombia with an emerging economy, the fourth in Latin America, ironically, is one of the countries with the greatest social inequality in the world, over 50 years of armed violence (between legal groups, guerrillas, paramilitaries and criminal gangs) in recent years has aggravated the urban and domestic violence with all its disastrous consequences, where the most affected are children and women; official statistics say that about 45% of the population lives in poverty and extreme poverty, this means, difficult access to health services, education, sanitation and drinking water; in the department of … Read entire article »


“No slave set. All free”: The Novad Collective and Apocalyptic Freedom

On Oct. 3, 2011, about one hundred Occupy zombies marched across from the New York Stock Exchange, a direct action that not only satirized the emptiness in the heart of American capitalism but announced what was soon demonstrated to be widespread utter estrangement from the neoliberal agenda. Of course, the feeling was mutual. The violent expulsion of the encampments in New York and around the country reframed the conflict between the left and the neoliberal hegemony in military terms. The next four or five months saw a continued escalation of repressive force, with the massing of police at demonstrations, use of helicopters, rubber bullets, snatch and grab arrests, and the infiltration of local groups.

The concept of African Oil and Curse Resources

Africa still remains one of the continents with huge oil reserves and potentials and yet the continent continue to remain a curse in the eyes of many as such oil, gas and other natural resources do not actually benefit them. Most countries with oil reserves in Africa and whose GDP is highly dependent on oil, gas and natural resources turn to face challenges like the Dutch disease, oil and gas volatility, political instability as well as economic instability who all sum up to make oil production in such countries a curse. The Dutch Disease is considered by economist as a situation where there is an increase in the exploitation of natural resources with increase revenue in that sector and a decline in the manufacturing … Read entire article »

The Song of Krishna

My life has become a tangled web of misery: A convoluted and complex entity, skewing to uncertainty. In the spiritual realm I am trapped inside the abyss; Millions of light years away from eternal bliss;   Doomed to a recurrent existence, with no end in sight; And my only option is to persevere, with fright. I call on the great Lord Krishna for enlightenment; He waves his magic, immersing me in refinement,   Guiding me through this Herculean task at hand, While all the time whispering, hand in hand. He chants softly, his Pearls of Wisdom, Proclaiming the Divine Kingdom.   I am speechless, in a deep psychedelic trance, As he unravels the whole universe at a glance. Clouds of confusion slowly dissipate, And through this limpidity I accept my fate.   He chronicles the right way to act in the battleground of life, While exercising detachment from all sorts of strife. He sprinkles his scintillating wisdom, devouring me, Taking immediate effect and decontaminating me.   As I hear a robin crooning, perched on a tree, An apparition of Krishna appears, summoning me. As I look up to the clouds, grief­stricken, Krishna appears with his angelic twinkle, and I am smitten.     Krisha’s lullaby lingers in the air, Waiting for more hopefuls to snare; Only the enlightened few will discern its scent, And confess it to be truly heaven sent. I pay homage to my savior, my mentor and my celebrity; And shall endeavor to keep him in the vicinity for eternity. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Shahrokh Sharifrazy is a writer, a mathematician and a poet  – not all at the same time though. He originally hails from Iran. … Read entire article »

The Caged Bird Sang

    The caged bird sang a song of hope When long the day, to help her cope With a song of freedom from despair A cry to every caged bird where They are in fear to fly   Her melody erased the rage Of birds who stalk their narrow cage Imprisoned birds were loosed the day They turned their cheek the other way And chose to join in song   Oh how the others sang along With heartfelt joy, they sang her songs On distant hills and dawn-bright lawns The sound of freedom rang   One fair morning with the dew With lifted wing, away she flew Freely leaping with the wind In orange sun rays, did ascend To name the sky her own  ’The Arachneed Journal through this poem by poetess Kay Salady thus pays its tribute … Read entire article »
