        I have arrived...
        I couldn’t get around blogging until now, but there are several news items floating around that I could not resist the temptation any longer. Besides, a friend of mine has been encouraging me to start blogging for some time now – perhaps to decrease the e-mail load he was getting from me. I guess it is my time now.

        The area of interest for me is mélange of cultures - borrowing, adopting and modifying norms, beliefs and social behavior. This will give me something to blog about ranging from globalization to comparison of corruption in Africa and the US…. If, in the process, I somehow inform somebody of something important or made the other think about an issue and take action, it would be an awesome achievement.
