This was the first time I landed in India and felt completely calm. Usually, as soon as I get here, the air hits me and I tense up with anxiety.  It takes me a while to adjust to the other side of the world. But this time when I landed, I felt a release. I guess I have...

Here I am once again on a plane. I am going to India. It is ironic. I used to hate going - the long ride, the billions of people. I mean, I love where I am from in India and love seeing my family, however getting there and adjusting to the other side of the world was a...

The first time I heard the drums was in my second year of University.

It was lunch time, and I had walked into the Student Union Building to meet up with friends and eat. In the centre space of the building, members of the Shubenacadie Mi’Kmaq First Nation were set up i...

As many of you may know, Tuesday November 8th, the long awaited day of the American Election, was my birthday. I had to work that day, but it was no trouble, I had the next day off, and was planning to celebrate.
