Mandela, a God in Our Times

Jasdev Singh Rai | Posted 20.02.2014 | UK Politics
Jasdev Singh Rai

While struggling against Apartheid and then bringing it down, Mandela maintained his core belief in the equality and dignity of all human beings irrespective of race, religion or gender. He added another element. Irrespective of action. In that he upheld the rhetoric many religions pronounce but rarely live by, many leaders say but rarely deliver. The ability to forgive and move on.

A Reggae Revolutionary: Remembering Peter Tosh

Before Nelson Mandela had been laid to rest, talk, inevitably, turned to his legacy. How would he be remembered: a benign, saintly figure, or, an unswerving revolutionary? For some, there was no ambiguity: he was one, or the other. But, for others, it wasn't contradictory that he embodied both traits: saint and revolutionary.

Although the Republicans in Congress have tried to thwart almost every effort put forth by the President up to now, Obama has not found a successful and winning way to deal with them. Perhaps his hero "Madiba" has a message in his life story for his young protégé Barack.

Mandela Will Never, Ever Be Your Minstrel

Dear revisionists, Mandela will never, ever be your minstrel. Over the next few days you will try so, so hard to make him something he was not, and you will fail... Well, try hard as you like, and you'll fail. Because Mandela was about politics and he was about race and he was about freedom and he was even about force, and he did what he felt he had to do and given the current economic inequality in South Africa he might even have died thinking he didn't do nearly enough of it.
