Welcome to Chowraha - crossroads!

Chowraha is the crossroads of thoughts, events, opinions and feelings...all that have been shaped by individuals living in an increasingly complex world inter-connected through various means of communications.

This blog is about the crossroads in society - whether it is those of a diaspora community, global media complicating the structure of nations and cultures, or individuals finding parallels in spaces unknown to them.

The above picture is courtesy a much-admired photographer (Ali Khurshid) whose work is a source of inspiration and reaffirms the belief in the complex beauty of this world.

Guantanamo Closure Justice to Ensure Peace

:Closure of Guantanamo calls for the closure of all notorious jails

“Change will come” – These words from Obama’s political campaign definitely have won him enough support to make him the most popular icon in the world today. His desire to see American troops out of Iraq and his announcement for the closure of Guantanamo Bay jail are steps allowing for his supporters to see the “change” actually materialize. Binyam’s freedom last month is testimony to the “change” after seven years of “war on terror” ordeal. This change is however only a tip of the ice-berg ready to melt.
