Walking the 'Slutwalk' is how life as a female in the fashion-track feels in the East
'Cat-walks' should not feature in your daily walk to the grocers, corner shop or bus stops, and dressing within reason should not cause a stir like a fashion parade that leaves you oggled at like a 'loose' woman, says Indian blogger-ess.
Because I am not a slut
"Being a woman in India is hard. Being a woman who wears whatever she wants is harder. God forbid you are a woman who wears what she wants AND goes where she wants all by herself.

But I have a problem with it."
Nasrallah's Reaction to the STL Indictment
"Hassan Nasrallah’s speech about the Special Tribunal for Lebanon’s (STL) indictment was a spectacular display of political theatre. We have become accustomed to the Hezbollah leader’s master performances, and today he did not disappoint. The speech had all the usual ingredients: criminal evidence, intricate conspiracies, and a defiant but reasoned political message. It seems that Nasrallah is pinning his hopes on winning the public opinion battle by undermining the credibility of the STL and dissuading his opponents in March 14 from pursuing its agenda."

Waiting for a Volcano? Don't hold your breath
"In the universe of Revolution 2.0, Facebook is the reigning capital, and The Syrian Revolution 2011 page (with over 218,000 “official” followers) is considered prime real estate. Earlier this week, the page boldly dedicated Thursday, June 30th to the “Aleppo Volcano,” but disappointment and low expectations began to appear days before, as the fiery graphic shrunk slowly, from proudly occupying the entire profile picture to sharing half the space with “Burn your Bills Wednesday,” and downgraded to a scant third after declaring the weekly national demonstration on July 1st as “Leave! Friday.” "
