பிள்ளைகளின் சீருடைகளை இஸ்திரிபோட்டுக் கொண்டிருக்கும்போது அருண்மொழி ஒரு நாளும் தவறாமல் கடுமையான கடமையுணர்ச்சியுடன் செய்யும் ஒரு செயல், சாம்பார் விட்ட இட்டிலித்தட்டுகளைக் கொண்டுவந்து அதே மேஜையில் சட்டைகள் படும் தூரத்தில் வைத்துவிட்டு புயலெனத் திரும்பிச்செல்வது.

Sows a cool and meager glow.
Sorrow, like a bird of gray,
Is in my heart, I'm walking slow.
Wounded bird, what’s in my power?
The deathly silent sky repels.
From the clouded bell-tower,
Someone’s taken down the bells.
And there it rises up - the height -
Orphaned, mute and in a d... Read more of this blog post »

From 1967 to 1980, Brazil grew at an average annual rate of 5.2 per cent. Few would have predicted, then, that for the next 22 years per capita income would grow at precisely zero.
That is from David Pilling at the FT, who considers China as well. And here is part of the first comment on the arti...Read more of this blog post »
