Asash Basir A good chance to practice ballet seriously! (Facebook, January 16)
Asash Basir Racism is almost everywhere in human thinking. Whether it is black or white, rich or poor, strong or weak, big or small, people have been judgemental for everything which is really weird. Why can’t we just see the positive side of everyone? Who are we to judge others, why can’t we feel all are equal and are good in their own capacity? I even feel sad when I see parents inclining towards stronger kids and leaving the weaker ones. It’s just not right. (Facebook, January 16)
Joachim Quainoo Nonsense it is. Do we still live in that primitive thinking? Lol! I wished I could help the Lady for her college funding. (Facebook, January 15)
