Why is there another war in the middle east?

I've been told that the war in Lebanon is not going to take forever to end. Reasons given for this opinion range from the fact that it is an isolated war, that serves just the interests of Israel's permanent offensive against the Palestinian cause. Well self preservation is fine and dandy. But it isn't so isolated. Israel's main ally in this big old world, the US of A has dragged itself into yet another war in the region.

It's still fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq and now it can add Lebanon to the list. The stakes are apparently high, while Israel works to try and remove the terrorists that its neighbour is harbouring by destroying the nation, and the US nods its approval, keeping a wary eye on Iran. It has opposed the ceasefire proposal by countries within the region.

We know we have a problem, when the USA butts in. And we know we have a problem when the neighbours express their disapproval and they are ignored. If Afghanistan was a retaliatory move, and Iraq was a cause-less war, what kind of a war is this? It's baseless, and just, plain and simply a blantant slap in the face and the idea of the sovereign nation.

And the world watches, with the exception of France, Russia, India and the Muslim block who have voiced out their opinion, yet haven't done anything significant, it watches. Somehow this reminds me of Hitler and the years before the WWII. Atleast then there were things like pacts. The world watched then as Hitler dared and dared and went ahead, and the world watches now as the US and to a smaller extent the wasp like Israel dares and dares to go further and further in their violent exploration of the Middle East.

The Arabs watch, content with their wealth, interested more in preserving their royal seats in their royal cities of royal wealth and religion. China grows quietly waiting for the world to react, probably hoping to flood the supply deprived countries with its goods, much like pre-WWII US, and pre-Korean war Japan. France, fletches its muscle long enough to voice disapproval, not more though to actually do something about it. The Asian block is in shock, still trying to awaken sleepy diplomats in the region into saving its peoples.

The people though have expressed they are not happy. Marches have been held all around the world, but marches don't go too far. There is a problem right now, and frankly speaking it seems to me that the world is too busy to give a shit about it. As power stamps out all opposition in the quest for wealth, I think the world is becoming more and more unstable not to mention disproportionate.

Diplomacy? What? Just like the the UN cringes under the pressure of having no power, beauracratic slump and corruption scandals, diplomacy has become the art of the forgotten and powerless people. So lets cringe and wait to get trampled.

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?

There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.

I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105

Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

L'Oreal Creme Gloss- Dark Chocolate (323)

I thought I'd try my hand at a product review & the product in question is the new shade 323 (Dark Chocolate) from L'Oreal.

How I bought it: At Health & Glow

$$$: Rs 425

Comments: There were plenty of 'test for allergy' warnings all over the box. Was kind of hard to miss the warning, but I did not heed it as I had used the product (not the same shade) before. Application was easy, and the instructions are very simple and can be followed to the letter. The smell, the texture and all the tools provided were perfect, very honestly, I love using L'Oreal hair colour more because of the ease, as I can do it myself at home. After washing out the dye, the hair was also glossy and bouncy, which made me feel less guilty about colouring it.

What I was not happy with, was the end result: the colour. It was very close to the actual shade of my hair, which I'd always thought was black. The product seemed to make my hair blacker than before, as opposed to the chocolate …
