City of secrets

Spiralling curves and mini gargoyles Towers turrets and trombones A white flag waving defiantly Here the occupants – just you and I This here, our city of secrets be.  Time doth stand still for the lover Space maketh way for a symphony sweet Like a carousel locked in timber fine Everything stands immobile till we...

Consolidating global efforts in Microfinance

I think Microfinance is the best thing since sliced bread. Having done my thesis on the topic and conducted first hand research in Villages in Bangladesh, I have seen the positivity and opportunity it has brought to thousands of women in Bangladesh and around the world.

Stained Silver Shoes

The first thing she saw when she woke up was the wind chime singing softly in the breeze. The glass prisms were sharp yet exquisite.
