Question asked by me to Mr. Bill Gates at ABC’s t.v. program ‘Q and A’

I had the opportunity to ask Mr. Gates a question at Australia’s famous program Q & A. Amongst my submitted questions, ABC asked me to ask this question in particular. My question was on aid & alleviating poverty critique. I wanted the great philanthropist’s foundations view on this side of aid critique and quoted the author Dambisa Moyo from her book ‘Dead Aid’, who have been known for her controversial theories; my question perhaps was taken up a little personally.



The question also came up with a string of debate followed by a response from Dambisa Moyo herself, who quickly took up the issue and promoted it. The links below will illustrate the debate:

 Once you taste aloofness

 Feelings of perplexity wells up

Once you have an understanding of that crass interior

The bubble of illusion swells up

 Only to burst…

Welcome to reality

 Welcome veracity.

The Ivory Coast conflict

The West African nation of Ivory Coast also known as Côte d’Ivoire was once a prospering nation. But since a 2002 civil war, the country has been divided by conflict. In November 2010, in office president, Laurent Gbagbo, refused to accept his defeat in a presidential election to Alassane Ouattara. He had postponed this election for many years.

Let’s Build Our Future Together

My entry in World Bank Essay Competition!

I know it’s very lame, I just wanted to try.

Its been a year……………


It has been a year since the terrible and ghastly incident. The brutal deaths, the murderous rampage, those dark 3 nights- has seen a year.

What we have yet to see is justice being served.

Only the families of these departed souls know how they are suffering, we can’t relate to their pain. The once trapped hostages relives those horrid days over and over again.

A wife lost her husband who had nothing to do with the mutiny, 4 months later she lost her only son(7 years old) who became sick at the loss of his father.

Now she is left with nothing…………………………….

Money won’t bring back their beloved.

Only proper trial will. It has been a year and the only thing the government has been able to do is open the case???!!!!

It makes us wonder whether our legal system will ever be effective?

Don’t give us fake hope, give these honourable soldiers the respect that they deserve.
