  • TRC: Let’s not make it Damocles’ sword TRC: Let’s not make it Damocles’ sword

    If we form the much-awaited TRC ignoring the decisions of the Supreme Court and international jurisprudence on amnesty and reconciliation, the issue will continue to dangle like a Damocles’ sword and haunt the country for several years. It can suddenly reemerge as happened in Argentina, Guatemala, Cambodia, and recently in Bangladesh. So, it is prudent not to repeat the mistakes that have already been committed elsewhere. It has led to dire consequences.

  • Hats off to every girl! Hats off to every girl!

    Nowadays, women do a job, and earn for themselves and even for the family. But when a woman gets promotion, she is accused of getting it by seducing the boss. Instead of praising her capabilities, people question her character. I feel it is pitiful; we are members of this society. We are not sure how to break these gender stereotypes.
