It's time to perform one of my irregular news roundups as I seem to be coming across a variety of interesting stories. Here's a sad story about the continuing tragedy of unmarked graves in Kashmir from the BBC. Hopefully, a full investigation will happen and the truth come out. It's clearly not difficult to imagine the police or the military being involved in certain amount of torture upto and including custodial killings of civilians. Very sad reality in a democracy. Ok. Have some fun watching this stand up act by an Indian in the UK. And here's a good, inspirational speech by a young man who was raised by a gay couple. And here's an old article about the shocking tale of AIDS in Africa . Life is very strange. Agreed. An obituary .
