Paradigm shift: Pakistani women and politics

What does it take for a woman in Pakistan to leave her house, take her children along and attend a political rally? I say, more than commitment. Apart from support from the men of her house, she needs to feel safe, among men, that is.

Photographer Peter Bussian has travelled around the world and photographed refugee camps. He shared his pictures and thoughts with Womentalk blogger Roma Rajpal. “I was always fascinated with travel and in particular countries at war. But I was not interested in the wars as much as the effect it has on people - refugees became my subject and I began travelling and photographing refugees, starting with the Cambodians on the Thai border in the early nineties.”

Politics: to know or not to know

Delwar Hossain Sayedi was sighted on the moon. People came out in groups to experience this wonder. When I heard this, I felt sad. A deep grief, anger and inability to do anything about it gripped me. Seriously, do people really believe that a human can be sighted on the moon? After this the Jamaat i Islam vandalized minority houses and temples with the help of some people who would do anything for Islam. These are uneducated and politically unaware people who do not know the true essence of Islam or any religion for that matter.
