The Death of Arab Consciousness 

3 Sep, '150 Comments

So much unnecessary loss of life. At the root of it, one group believes they and only they are right. The others are worthless creatures who should be exterminated. Those people, who I believe fueled war and strife in Syria and elsewhese will not be moved by the horrible images and their conscience one single iota, […]

Tumblr? What’s Tumblr?

Tumblr? What’s Tumblr?

Yes, I know it supposed to be a blog anything, anytime, every time kind of platform that’s hip with the younger crowd. I never really paid it any attention. I do have an account there, of course, but the only thing I use Indifferent Musings for is mirroring this blog, Instagram and I can’t remember what […]

Every time I visit another country, I try to bring back with me some plants that took my fancy, and those that I think will have a chance to grow in my garden. I’m particularly taken with “showy” plants, plants with nice flowers and those that can attract nice wildlife. One that I tried to […]

Bahrain Blogging Scene… Where is it?

Bahrain Blogging Scene… Where is it?

28 Aug, '1517 Comments

[updated 3.9.15] I wanted to know what blogs are still being published in Bahrain and I went searching. I found eleven, other than this one. There must be more, surely. In 2006 when I was aggregating all the blogs I remember that the list exceeded 200 at one point. That number has crashed to eleven […]

A bit of nostalgia

A bit of nostalgia

Life was more colourful then, as this beautifully simple currency shows. It harkens back to a time when things appeared easier. And as far as I can remember, even the weather was a much better! I still remember the smells of those balmy summer nights as we watched the stars in a dark, unpolluted sky as we dozed […]

Reflections on the Purpose of Life

Reflections on the Purpose of Life

27 Aug, '158 Comments

Over the last few months a change has descended on me. A restlessness that is not quenched just by going to work, making money and paying the bills. I most certainly came to the realisation a long time ago that I did not want such a life. That was, in fact, the primary reason why […]

No sympathy for fat people

None. Because I was one and know from my own experience that the solution is in one’s own hands – and mouth – and no one else’s. Brutal. Honest. And true. So stop your whining and just get on with it. Let me tell you how I got it done. Determination Commitment Sacrifice, and A vision […]

It’s been such a long time since I published anything here. I’ve lost interest, but kept the blog up for posterity’s sake. I believe it served a purpose, and still does. It holds inspiration for some, and a healthy archive for others. To me, I can’t just delete it as it’s a part of me […]

Unethical telecom companies in Bahrain – VIVA as an example

Unethical telecom companies in Bahrain – VIVA as an example

2 Mar, '1511 Comments

While it’s a fact that telecom companies are nothing but glorified automated billing systems, why aren’t they forced to let their customers know of the expiry or anniversary of their contract?

At the moment, VIVA, and I suspect the others too, carry on with their completely unethical practices of not notifying their customers that their contracts have ended, and continue with full unethical intent to charge them ad infinitum the very same charges per month even after their customer have fully paid their smartphone packages.
