Wide Sargasso Sea: Themes Of Colonialism And Patriarchy Our everyday discourse throws light on the nature of the human relationship and experience, and equally shows how deeply human beings are entangled in the web of the dominant ideologies, amongst them, sexism and racism.

Africa: Euphemism or Problem of Semantics?

One of the greatest challenges I face in Africa is the ability to understand clearly the difference between the use of euphemism and identifying a semantics problem.

Will You Live Up To Your Dreams and Responsibilities In the Year 2019?

2018 has come to an end. It is time to count your gains and losses. Time for a sober reflection. More than anything else, the end of the year means the end of a chapter in your life.
