Musings Over A Bad Boy Leaving Town

By Chedvah, published on Dec 22, 2008

“The world exists in myriad colours and subtle shades, and the leader who can learn to see the world in all its polychrome wonder and to make the fine distinctions in shadings that are required to solve problems without causing confrontations, is the leader who will ultimately succeed.”- From Leadership for Dummies.

At a recent interview of American President George Bush carried out by the President of American Enterprise Institute, Mr Christopher De Muth, I saw the outgoing American President in a different light. I say it without distaste: I am not a ‘George Bush’ fan, I didn’t support... (more)

Living It Up This Christmas Inspite The Faux Pas

By Chedvah, published on Dec 22, 2008

Uum so where do I begin…? Its Christmas in just a few days…and I am looking forward to Christmas this year…a first in a long time…I am not entirely over the moon but rather so eager for my Christmas presents this year. After the last few months of frost bite from the credit crunch, coupled with shivering sessions of long days plodding on to make a dime in the winter cold and with the pre climax being getting rid of the one person who caused me more grief than happiness…I am actually ecstatic for every moment that draws nearer to Christmas…

Behaving Badly On The London Underground

By Chedvah, published on Nov 14, 2008

I have always been down with a cool temperament, even before an outburst I like to analyse the repercussions of my possible unnecessary outburst and chant to myself ‘Be cool,’ eventually succumbing into a passive state. So it is with great disturbance while travelling on the London underground last evening that I was increasingly perturbed by a couple behaving badly.

Now evenings on the London underground are always featuring gloomy office types returning home from work, talkative office types quite evidently heading to the pub, the all drowned in the evening freebie and sometimes... (more)

Tour Mania At The World Travel Market

By Chedvah, published on Nov 14, 2008

The credit crunch has seemed to be something of a theme for the better part of the last few months, and although its familiarity has been with us through a hike in prices, panic buying and oscillating interest rates; this hasn’t so much deterred the global trotting public.

Recently I was asked to attend the World Travel Market at the ExCel London, what I thought would be an easy thing to write about has not been quite so but one always tries. Until my invitation and I say this with shame, I hadn’t heard of the ExCel London and the World Travel Market…shows there is always something... (more)

Teach Me The Art Of Age-defying

By Chedvah, published on Nov 7, 2008

Age-Defying…a topic often not hankered after by several women out loud, is slowly giving upraise amongst them within their inner circles. But then again, as one ages there is a renewal of one’s conversational boundaries. The TV adverts alone are often hoarding age defying products and solutionsfrom companies like ‘Olay’ and ‘L’Oreal,’ coupled with several page spreads in magazines of the ever non botox assisted aging celebrities. It is actually difficult to spot a twenty year celebrity from a forty plus celebrity just after a once over. Flat stomachs... (more)

Change!?!?!?!?!?!? New Change For The U.S.A.

By Chedvah, published on Nov 5, 2008

The uproar in the United States of America after the new President elect, Barack Obama was announced early this morning (G.M.T) was deafening, applauded heavily but yet it seemed long in coming. The road to an Obama victory was paved with twists and turns, pebbles and eventually smooth landings. With some talk about the “honey moon being short for the victorious democrats and a fast period of disenchantment to follow,” it is indeed okay to block out all the ‘bruu ha ha’ for some time and enjoy this joyous moment.

I have followed the USA Election 2008 with calm reserve, heavily impressed... (more)

Raising The Wasteman And Wastewoman

By Chedvah, published on Jun 22, 2008

Britain today is being faced with an uproar of crime-knife and gun crimes have become so apparent among its young people. Crimes committed by young people range from petty to serious often leading to injuries, detention, exclusion, prison and death. Lots of reasons have been put forth to the possible causes of the escalation of knife and gun crime in the United Kingdom; fall in the structure of the family unit and young people being exposed to media and technological hype.

Everyone has stepped in and they are doing their part, the government especially, is retracing it steps and has... (more)

Who Is My Big Brother?

By Chedvah, published on Jun 20, 2008

Back in the day, the mention of a ‘Big Brother,’ conjured memories of a protective and guiding male figure. Big Brother was always there at the right time and most especially telling you who to avoid.

It is the year 2008, things have slightly changed, ‘Big Brothers,’ still in plenty of course, some still living up to their responsibilities and to their name, but on the other hand in particular, somebeing seemingly more of 'antagonisers' than the rest-The Big Brother Programme 2008 in the United Kingdom is rather upbeat and has mustered the secretof creating entertainment... (more)

Having Londonmania

By Chedvah, published on Feb 23, 2008

I fell in love with London, the moment I first saw her/him??? I was struck in awe by the appearance of London, the shops, the night hang outs and just watching the fast paced life that people seemed tolead. I realise now that indeed appearances can be deceiving coupled with the fallacy of love. Love tends to blind out all the discrepancies that the subject of one’s affections has... and so began my life as a ‘Londoner.’

Life as a ‘Londoner’ has been quite intriguing for me, perhaps it’s because I come from a place that is significantly different.... (more)

THE LAST MAN STANDING

By Chedvah, published on Dec 14, 2007

I am a football fan; at first my intentions for joining the acclaimed world of ‘footie’ were ulterior. I was strongly motivated by the fact that the guy I had my eye on at the time, was so totally into footie. I have never been one to rely on my looks and so I used my intellectual side and learnt and studied footie as a whole, his team and yes my endeavours paid off. Well the footie caught on and years later, I am still totally hooked. So I too have held my bated breath as England began and has carried out its quest in the hunt for the next England Football Manager. A job not entirely... (more)
