Well, seems my blog-entries are now more of an annual thing then a weekly or monthly. ;) Anyway, from march 2014 ’till last december I had an awesome job working with (street) kids as some kind of social worker in a borough just outside of antwerp. Our current city-governance and to be more precise the right-wing mayor of this town, ruled that the kind of job, the sort that I was doing, should seize to be! According to him and his rightwing idiot friends this kind of work(ers) should be made obsolete and in change they want more police-patrols. In other words…more repression – less prevention! Add some para-military presence in our town center (since the Charlie Hebdo affair) and fear and angst sells like sweet cake (or rather; waffle) again to the narrow minded belgian fools.

Nevertheless, I’ve been keeping myself busy with various other pleasantries. Working on some of me tunes…organising 45 hours of film footage shot in India into a nice neat “library” for future video-making. And decided (and already commenced) to write a book. It’s once again due to (non-belgian) friends who thought it’d be a splendid idea that I’d write down some of my “travel-memoirs”. But I reckon that after living nearly twenty years out of a backpack…one should have a bold tale or two to tell. ;)
In the meanwhile…enjoy the occasional tune that I’ll drop on here. luv & peace. (-°-)

Warm tune for a rainy day…

Always a pleasure to bump into “new” music & tunes. Music…a journey that never ends and never ceases to amaze! (-°-)

Some common sense…?!

Seems that someone, somewhere used a wee bit of his/hers common sense and let couchsurfing off the hook. Then again, I think this matter (letting Couch-hosts pay) will re-surface eventually. But for now….it seems okay again…

Beautiful…must watch. (-°-)

Belgians…just ignore them!

Jeremy Clarkson had it right; “Belgians: they’ll bore you to death!”
Roaming around and living out of a backpack for over a decade and a half…not the easiest task to adjust to this place! I’ve never seen narrow-mindedness and ignorance being wielded like it does here…
Should you ever wonna visit however…DON’T! Save your money and go somewhere nice. ;)

But thank goodness for my mates across the channel who have a much better sense of humor (well, come to think of it…everyone has a better sense of humor than the Belgians)…Weep, cry, enjoy! ;)

Spot on…and well funny!

Came across this dude a few months ago. He nails it regarding certain issues in India. Issues that a lot of my fellow India-travellers seem to be blind for. Perhaps mostly through overdosing on (fake) spiritual crap. Anyway, Wilbur Sargunaraj…hope this man’s videos will spread a bit more. Enjoy and learn. (-°-)

stories from the Punjab…

A message for all…

Watch & share this amazing speech by Charlie Chaplin from – The Great Dictator (1940) -.

A short documentary about “TIME”. Certainly worth a watch!

15th of August 1947: Independence day in India

Posted in Awareness, Politics with tags , on 14/08/2011 by terraMasala

I’ll never forget when I was in India in 1997…on the 15th of August…50 years of Independence…big celebrations everywhere.
Attached is a BBC documentary about the partition of India. Still I come across people in the west who don’t even know that before this date, India & Pakistan was one country.
Over a million of people were killed during this partition-process. Independence is more than hanging a flag out of one’s window.
A moment of silence in respect and remembrance of the people who lost their lives. (-°-)
