What’s Happening with Farmers in India?

Three bills on agriculture market reforms, which would change the way agricultural produce is marketed, sold and stored across India, were introduced by the ruling party of the county, for which the provincial government of Punjab was not in favour, as it is one of the most agriculturally based states of the county. As a result, the leader of the provincial government resigned from the post for being against the introduced law.   In the Lok Sabha, the voice of opposition was not considered, and the three bills were passed through…

Fighting Terrorism With Terrorism: The Macron Way

As the media has been turned towards the USA for so long; calling out their institutional racism, mocking Donald Trump during his entire 4 years in office, then reporting live updates during the incredibly tense 2020 elections, Canada and the USA seem to have forgotten about the issues present across the ocean, and no, I’m not talking about China and Russia, as we do hear a lot of anti-Russia and anti-China propaganda.  I’m talking about France.   On October 16th, Northern Parisian schoolteacher Samuel Paty was beheaded by a suspected…

Secularism is out the window

The Quebec government has recently announced that the lockdown restrictions, which have been in place since roughly October and have only been getting stricter, will temporarily be lifted from December 24th to December 27th, as gatherings up to 10 people will be allowed*.    It is no coincidence that Christmas Day just happens to be on December 25th (“Noël, cette année, ça tombe le 25 Décembre,” as Legault so eloquently put it), and Christmas Eve, which French Canadians, in particular, are known to celebrate, the 24th.  Hanukkah, this year, begins…

How to Find your Way Home During the Holidays

With the winter break approaching rapidly, we are unable to escape the looming arrival of the holiday season. For some, such festivities are enticing, promising warmth and a sense of belonging as a light in the harsh and cold Canadian winter. The scent of pine wafting through hallways bathed under golden lights, the hurried anticipation of a thousand overheating bodies under down jackets crammed together in line before Christmas Eve.

A Train Story

It was dense. Dark mist rested on our heads with a soft delicacy while we were invaded by the overwhelming silence. Sitting there, unable to see beyond the cracking sound of rusted rails, my partner and I were waiting for the train that would take us to our final destination (or so I thought). Between the silence and the cold night’s atmosphere, our only source of sanity was a silent, meaningful (or insignificant?) conversation that was sustained with the passing of a bottle of wine, an exchange of lived experiences…
