Man-O-Man Sings the Praises of Friends Without Borders

Man-O-Man

The day after Friends Without Borders carried its first delivery of mail across the Wagah frontier from India into Pakistan, the Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh, issued a press release, congratulating the children of Pakistan and India for leading the way to a more peaceful world by participating in this special friendship project.

Here is the text of his press release:

PRESS RELEASE FROM THE OFFICE OF THE PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA

The Prime Minister has commended the ongoing effort to encourage children from India and Pakistan to write letters of friendship to each other, which is being organized by FriendsWithoutBorders.org. The first set of such letters was carried to Pakistan on March 24.

Dr Singh said, “This is a beautiful event, being led by the children of both countries. It has very positive ramifications for the future of both nations, once this generation of children grows up and takes on the reins of leadership.”

While thanking the organizers, the Prime Minister also saluted the children of India who have written heartfelt letters of friendship, and encouraged more children to join this movement.

Blasts from the Past

... because the idiocy of manliness is an evergreen topic.

.

... because Canada and the US will celebrate their Thanksgiving holidays and, regrettably and preventably, not 1-cook-in-10 will serve a decent turkey.

.

... because everyday is Mother's Day.

.

... because the American Dream seems but a distant memory, given the country's dominant ethos of small-mindedness.

.

... to remind us that not every mix of Tibetans and Western spiritual seekers has to be nauseating.

.

... to celebrate the new edition of Infinite Vision published in India.

.

... reprised because military strategy seems more cruel and less effective than ever -- and certainly there is a better way.

.

... because cars are ruining Pondicherry, where I live. How badly are they fucking up your Indian town?

.

... reprinted because more-and-more people seem want to understand the gift economy. (Yeah!)
