May Day brings workers’ hidden power to the fore
On a path cleared and strengthened by their
blood, sweat and tears, we march towards another May Day, not just
through flashbacks of a dark history, but as a day that reminds us
of the hidden power of hard-working people.
Music, an all embracing element in life
Music has always been associated with religion.
The conch shells, flutes, and many types of drums have been used at
processions. The soothing verses of Pirith uttered by a Bhikkhu, the
Gregorian church music, hymns sung with words and tunes set
according to the occasion, the Nagasalam and bells heard in the
Kovil and the melodious voice of the Imam calling the faithful to
prayer from the minaret are calls for humans to devoutly proclaim
their faith in what they believe most soothingly.
The Eighteen Group
The Eighteen Group is not a revolutionary group.
In fact, I came across them in a book I reviewed recently. It is a
motley group, the only common denominator they display being that
they are an all male group.
