Fidel Castro’s legacy
Castro proved that socialism itself is not an inept and bankrupt idea, and kept on knocking at the doors of the capitalist countries to ruminate on their missteps during their colonial rule and to redress them by extending true helping hands – not those contaminated by greed, profit motives, and undue interferences – to the needy countries.

I have seen my sisters and friends isolated and treated in discriminatory manner during their first menstruation cycle.
