Terrorism and the Pakistani Nukes

There is nothing new when I point out that Pakistan has been using terrorism as a state policy for a long time. And so when it comes to tackling terror, there has always been a distinction of good and bad terrorism. Groups like the Lashkar-e-Taiba who go after India are looked at […]

October is Gone!

Last month was an eventful one, except that I forgot to gift my blog a post on its 4th birthday on 16th. I read a novel by Liane Moriarty called The Husband’s Secret. It was fairly good, except that a couple of characters were annoying and lacked a convincing closure. I enjoyed the […]
