Dear Friends,

Just to alert you to my leader essay in The Hindu on the bombings in Lebanon.

http://www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/ordinary-lives-extraordinary-deaths/article5550047.ece?homepage=true

Imbedded in the text is this paragraph:

"Such memories of near misses are legion in Lebanon: of a sniper whose bullet went past a young woman, of a boy who tells his father to hurry up only to find that he has saved both of them from a car bomb, of a woman who goes back into her house to get her pocketbook to be saved from a shell that landed on her front walk. There is a trauma that gets distilled out of these close calls, and of having to cry over the bodies of dead friends and relatives, or even of dead strangers."

Warm regards,

Vijay.
