Dil se Dil in the Bombay Times

Dil se DIl logo

For India and Pakistan, the 60th anniversary of independence draws near. For Indians and Pakistanis, the first-ever joint celebration is also at hand.

As those of you who read this space know, the night of 14-15 August will witness Midnights Grandchildren coming together at an historic friendship concert held on one of the world’s most heavily militarized borders.

The media circus in advance of the event has begun, kicked off with today’s frontpage feature in the Bombay Times.

    Finally, our hearts have found a connection through love, friendship, prosperity, peace and happiness for people on both sides of the border…

    Congratulations to all Indian friends!

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!)
