Raman on Headly and media responses

Noted Chennai-based security expert B.Raman argues:

David Coleman Headley

All Governments indulge in spin. One should not, therefore, blame the Government of Dr.Manmohan Singh for indulging in spin in the case of David Coleman Headley, of the Chicago cell of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LET), and for trying to mislead the hapless Indian public with the help of obliging journalists that the plea bargain entered into by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) with Headley was not a setback, but a great triumph for Indian diplomacy.

We might not have succeeded in getting him extradited in the Mumbai 26/11 case, says bravely Home Secretary G.K.Pillai, but the option of getting him extradited in other cases is still open. What other cases?

We will keep trying, says Home Minister P.Chidambaram. And, in the meanwhile, more Indians will keep dying at the hands of the terrorists.

“Four Reasons Why India is Smiling” says “The Times of India” of diminishing credibility. Why India is smiling according to the whiz kids of the TOI? For the first time LET’s links with Al Qaeda being underscored in a US Court. Oh really? The first time a clandestine cell of the LET was detected in the US was in 2003 when George Bush was the President. The FBI arrested a number of American nationals of Pakistani, Saudi and other origin and charged them with waging war against India from US territory.

What is the second reason for India’s smile visible only to the TOI and not to many of us? “The threat of execution will hang over him.” Oh really? Under the US law once the FBI renounces its right to demand death penalty in a case it cannot go back on its commitment whatever be the new evidence.

What is the third reason for the smile? India can interrogate Headley even if he is not extradited. Another gem from the TOI. Interrogation is done in your custody. Otherwise, it is meaningless. Yes, under the plea bargain Indian investigators can question him in FBI’s custody. The FBI officer will decide the relevance of the questions.

The fourth reason for India’s smile so visible to the TOI? India’s case against the LET has become stronger.So what? Will India be able to get Pro.Hafeez Mohammad Sayeed, the Amir of the LET, arrested and prosecuted by Pakistan? Will India be able to see that Pakistan dismantles the LET infrastructure in Pakistani territory? Will India be able to prevent another 26/11? Then of what use India’s case against the LET becoming stronger?

The “Hindu”, the other daily of no credibility, has come out with its own gem. Says N.Ram, the precious son of the Tamil soil and our own unique contribution to the world of Indian journalism: ” Barring death penalty enthusiasts, no one has any reason to bemoan the Plea Agreement”.

Oh,oh.oh,oh Mr.Ram. It has got nothing to do with death penalty. It has got everything to do with Pakistan’s continued use of the LET to kill hundreds of innocent Indians. Our investigation into 26/11 runs on two parallel tracks—– the responsibility of the LET, which the Pakistanis project as a non-State actor with which the State of Pakistan has nothing to do and the responsibility of the State of Pakistan. What the US has sought to achieve through the choreographed plea bargain is that while India will be able to highlight the responsibility of the LET, it will not be able to establish the responsibility of the State of Pakistan. The Obama Administration wants the world to perceive 26/11 as the crime of a non-state actor as claimed by Pakistan and not the crime of the State of Pakistan. That is the real issue here.

What did Headley know according to the FBI’s own court affidavits?

  • He knew Ilyas Kashmiri of the 313 Brigade, who is close to Osama bin Laden and who recently threatened to attack the IPL cricket matches and the Commonwealth Games. Headley had met him in North Waziristan in the beginning of 2009.
  • He knew many office-bearers of the LET whose identities the FBI has not revealed.
  • He knew many serving and retired officers of the Pakistan Army.

What he must be knowing?

  • The identities of the many contacts he made in India during his repeated visits.
  • The identities of the sleeper cells of the LET, which have not yet come to the notice of the Indian investigators. If the FBI had allowed us to question Headley in time, we might have been able to prevent the Pune blast of February 13 if it had been planned by the LET or its Indian associates.

The FBI had seen to it that we will not be able to find out all this by independently interrogating Headley. It is a great tragedy and speaks eloquently of the decay of our sense of national self-respect that instead of having the spine to stand up to the US and protest loud and clear over the FBI’s shutting out access to Headley, we are indulging in more spins to project what has happened as a triumph for Indo-US cooperation over which we should smile and not cry.

The Obama Administration has been repeatedly kicking us in the back.It did so in respect of Afghanistan. It has done so in respect of Headley. Instead of having the courage and intellectual honesty to admit to our people that we have been let down nastily by the US, we are indulging in more spins to project the kicks as, in fact, boquets from Obama with love.

Dear Dr.Manmohan Singh, Dear Shri Chidambaram, Dear Shri Pillai, Dear Shri Ram, Dear whiz-kids of ToI : Some weeks ago Mulla Baradar, supposedly No.2 in the Afghan Taliban, was arrested by the ISI in Karachi.He is in the ISI’s custody. The US and Afghan intelligence wanted independent access to him for interrogation. The ISI refused and told them he could be questioned in the ISI’s custody. The US insisted on independent access and warned Pakistan of the likely consequences if it did not agree to it. This week’s reports say that Pakistan has been forced to allow independent access to the Americans.

That is the way a self-respecting nation protects its interests and nationals. For the US, independent interrogation of Baradar was necessary to hold those responsible for American deaths in the past accountable and to prevent more deaths in future. It insisted on it and had its way.

India is not the US. The clout which it has over Pakistan we do not have anywhere in the world. At least we could have had the courage to protest—- loudly and openly— instead of projecting every stab in the back by Obama as a kiss in the back.

The spin continues. The more the spins, the more will be the fizzles.

London Art Spot: Emli Bendixen

This year started off well for Emli Bendixen as she was short-listed for Professional Photographer of the Year Award 2009. With a long list of clients like Wonderland, Vice and Dazed and Confused and a fascinating portfolio of images, this North London-based photographer – who was born in South Korea and grew up in Denmark – has the passion and vision to go far in her career.

For this week’s London Art Spot, she tells us about her approach to photography on a recent trip to India, where we can find a taste of Korean and Danish food in London and about some of the capital’s interesting locations to take a camera.

LLO: How did you end up in London and how long have you lived here?
EB: I first moved to London aged 19 after finishing school in Denmark. Being from a small town, I couldn’t wait to move to the city. I later went off to Glasgow and then to Copenhagen for university before returning to London where I have been ever since. I’ve lived in Shepherds Bush, Kennington, Old Street, Dalston, Stoke Newington and now Crouch End.

LLO: How does living in London influence your creativity?
EB: First and foremost it gives me access to some really exciting people. I’m curious and inquisitive by nature – and I can think of few places better than London to keep you stimulated and with so much to look at.

LLO: You’re from a Korean/Danish background. Where’s the best place in London to find a taste of Korean or Danish culture?
EB: To be honest, I haven’t looked into either much. I’m here to check out all the other bits of culture that are different to mine… Although not entirely Danish, I do love the food at Elk in the Woods in Angel; and the Scandinavian bakery in Golden Square. For Korean food there are a couple of excellent places just next to Centre Point – and I really like Dong San in Poland Street.

LLO: Twitter tells me you went to India over Christmas and Flickr shows you brought back some great photos. Tell us a bit about your trip and the photos you took while you were there?
EB: I went to Kerala in the South. It was an incredible experience. I was very aware of being a tourist, with a Western background, with a camera. I noticed that this role in relation to the people I photographed tinted my photographs with something not quite real – at best something very self-conscious, so I decided to break this process and instead forced myself to focus more on general impressions, the little and the big things… the view from our homestay in Periyar, our taxi driver from Munnar, and the dog that followed us down the beach in Varkala…The result is more personal – I suppose much like a diary – in that I spoke to almost everyone I photographed and walked the same mountains you see in my pictures. The food photography was part of a separate food diary, which my girlfriend was writing.

LLO: Which piece are you most proud of and why?
EB: A portrait called Harmony.

LLO: Favourite place in London to take your camera?
EB: The city is full of exciting locations – I’ve shot in pubs, clubs, warehouses, studios and council flats; next week I’m shooting in a friend’s house in Finsbury Park that’s in the middle of being renovated. Although I mainly shoot indoors at the moment, I love Hampstead Heath and Abney Park in Stoke Newington. 

LLO: Your largest set on Flickr is called “Faces”. What do you try to capture when you’re shooting a portrait and where do you find your models?
EB: More often than not, I ask people I know to sit for me. What is most interesting for me in taking a picture is capturing some part of that person which may not usually be on display; so it’s about going beyond what immediately meets the eye. Again, it’s about curiosity… I just want to know a little bit more than I did the moment before that picture was taken.

LLO: What type of camera and lens do you use?
EB: I normally use a Canon 450D and recently a Canon 1DS Mark III; also a Diana F+, a Holga, and a Minolta XD7.

LLO: Your client list already includes Dazed and Confused, Vice and Professional Photographer Magazine. Who is your dream client and why?
EB: I would love to work for The Guardian and The Times; Monocle and Intelligent Life are also high on my list. I’m also keen to shoot more music photography – I’ve done press shots for bands such as Robots in Disguise for a couple of years which has been a great challenge and definitely something I want to get more into. I suppose generally I would be happy shooting portraits and lifestyle images that allow for a personal and aesthetic approach.

Thanks Emli!

lockdown mode

The weight of the daily grind is getting heavier! Less than three weeks until I leave for India, and the responsibilities keep pilin’ up (or rather, I can’t get seem to get rid of the ones I have)!

However, the week was GORGEOUS! It was hoodie/vest/t-shirt weather most of the week. Amazing. Unfortunately the cold is apparently coming back soon, but I’ll take what I can get.

Earlier in the week I came home, checked the mail and was greeted by this:

From, of course, none other than the BF who is still in Borneo (guh).

But I was thrilled! And I couldn’t stop smiling when I read this:

Ahhh, what a cutie! I especially love the illustrations (particularly the alligator…haha). And yes, he signed off as “Chef James” – a little nickname he has acquired based on his spectacular culinary skills (did I mention he used to try to woo me by leaving little vegan treats on my doorstep? yep.). He’d probably be pretty mortified (well, or feel like the prince that he is) that I posted this all up here, but so far he has given me no indication that he’s been reading my blog [from Indonesia] so perhaps if he is this will incite him to pipe up ;)

Other things! I did a bunch of cooking this week, though not too many pictures to post up. One thing I did make was Christie’s Lentil and Cabbage Soup. I added a few things into the mix (a carrot, some celery, and 100g of lean ground turkey I had in the freezer) and decided to let’er go on the Crock Pot! I love this thing:

The recipe is great – thanks Christie! It is an extremely hearty and satisfying bowl of soup that really warms the soul…

How-ev-er…upon some trial&error with this soup and some hummus, I have determined that for the moment, beans and legumes are just NOT sitting well with me. Almost immediately after eating them (particularly the chickpeas) my stomach becomes an unhappy-in-turmoil place. So for the moment, the rest of the soup is going to chill out (ha-ha) in the freezer until my digestion becomes completely normal. Happy to report that it’s almost there, but I want to focus on keeping my sensitivities out of my diet as much as possible. (sidebar: although peanuts are legumes, my body seems to be ok with them)

Since we’re talking about lentils, may I please remind everyone to pick over your lentils well? Otherwise you might end up with something like this scraping between your teeth:

Oh yes. A rock. Never again will I be the lazy girl who picks through her lentils for 4.6 seconds.

On the thesis front, I’ve taken a step back. My supervisor read my last chapter, liked it, and offered some references for me to check out to enhance it (always a good idea!).  However, after checking out the suggested books, I opted to essentially re-write my most recent chapter. I’m leaving my main ideas (they still stick) but have just gone through and bolstered the text with my new references. Doesn’t sound like much, but it’s adding up to a lot of work. This is good news because it means I’ll have much more solid text, but it’s bad news because it is putting me a week behind schedule in getting my thesis done before India. If I successfully completely the revisions this weekend, that gives me only 2 weeks to write 2 more chapters before I leave. Oh my god!

So, in the spirit of bucking down, I started my morning with this:

Books, books, books, and a bowl of almost-normal oats! This one had 1/4 oats (soaked overnight), 1/2 T chia seeds, 2 T applesauce, 2T pumpkin, cinnamon, and 1/4 c 1% cottage cheese (with probiotics). Topped with 1 T natural pb and a few frozen berries, nuked and poured overtop. It was so delicious.

Where did the cottage cheese come from? Yesterday I made the executive decision to bring some dairy back into my life since I’ve been feeling a lot better. It’s admittedly a bit early, but I’m the captain of my body, right? It felt like it was going to sit well, and so far, so good. The idea is to introduce one thing at a time without changing the diet, see how you feel over hte next 72 hours (apparently that’s how long food intolerances can take to flare up) so that you can watch your reactions. Depending on the severity of the reaction, you can decide whether to include the food regularly, occasionally, rarely, or obviously never. So there we have it – day 2 of dairy!

Anyway, it was so worth it for this bowl. Yum Yum.

Also, I’m do apologize for not posting the cookie recipe yet! For some reason I have just not been in the mood for eating them lately. But let me give you a preview of the three ingredients: nut butter + carob powder + coconut. That’s it!

Happy weekend – I hope you guys are enjoying it for me, because I’ll be on lockdown mode!

Plan A

Original Creation


To look at the original purpose of Work, I need to take you to the MANUAL (Bible) where the MANUFACTURER (God) has given the OBJECTIVE for creating each of the products.

If you have a bible turn to the first book of the bible, GENESIS chapter 2 and verse 15 (Genesis 2:15). The background of this scripture and the events leading to this scripture are:

1. God creates all the earth

2. He creates the first MAN. (with the woman inbuilt in him)

3. He creates their home and their office (Garden of Eden)

4. He creates all the resources they need to Live and Work (water, food, etc.,)

5. And then He tells the man to WORK and to KEEP everything well.

The old testament in The Bible was written in Hebrew language.

The root word in Hebrew which is translated as  “WORK“ in english is the root word “Awbaad”. As we saw earlier, this is the very first time that the word WORK appears in the English Bible.

While reading the bible, one principle that we need to remember is that, if we want to learn the original purpose/design of any created thing, we need to go to the VERY FIRST time the Bible talks about it. That is where we will learn most of the principles of operation of that created thing. For example, if you want to learn about the design/purpose of “Marriage”, then you need to go to the first time the Bible talks about it, which is in Genesis 1:20 to 25. That is where all the original principles of marriage are revealed by God, the creator.

Now we are learning about WORK, so it is important that we go to the very first time the word WORK is mentioned, so that we may learn the original purpose/plan for WORK. That is why Genesis 2:15 is important.

Coming to the ROOT word “AWBAAD”… in the Hebrew language, each word has multiple meanings, but they are all related. So, if we look at various meanings of this root word, we can truly understand the original purpose of WORK as it was in the heart of God.

According to the Strong’s concordance (an authentic reference book) of the Hebrew language, the TOP 5 meanings of the root word AWBAAD are:

1. To Serve

2. To Worship

3. To Do

4. To Dress Up

5. To Labour

Isn’t that beautiful?! When the creator took the VERY FIRST MAN who was created and asked him to WORK, this is what he meant. He would have said, “Adam why don’t you go to your workplace and serve me, worship me, do what I want you to do, dress up the place the way I would have done it and labour to cultivate it, guard it and make it fruitful”

Today, this is exactly what He is telling you and me, when we go to work! Read that sentence again and think about it for a couple of minutes! Ask yourself if you are DRESSING UP your workplace by cleaning up all unwanted things (greed, lust, pride, envy, hatred, jealousy, corruption, etc.,). Ask yourself if you are SERVING and WORSHIPING God in and through your work, on a daily basis.

Now one more question… take a close look at the list of 5 things… in that list, where is “SALARY” or “Pay Check” or “Profit”??!! After all that is what most of us go to work for, right? But it does not appear in God’s ORIGINAL purpose of work??!! Why??!! Does that mean God wants me to work all my life for free? How will I live? Do I have to be poor? Do I have to not expect any returns for my work? What about the SALARY part??!

We will discuss that in the next blog!

Delhi - FORTS & MONUMENTS - Qutab Minar


Delhi – FORTS & MONUMENTS – Qutab Minar

In 1199, Qutbuddin raised the Qutab Minar either as a victory tower or as a minaret to the adjacent mosque. From a base of 14.32 mtrs. it tapers to 2.75 mtrs. at a height of 72.5 mtrs. It is still the highest stone tower in India, one of the finest stone tower in India, one of the finest Islamic structures ever raised and Delhi’s recognised landmark. It was completed by the Sultan’s successor and son-in-law, Iltutmish. The tomb of Iltutmish, which he himself built in 1235, is nearby, Its interiors are profusely decorated with calligraphy, though the dome has collapsed.
