http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/2014/11/14/another-side-of-domestic-violence/ 

A doctor's view on a case of domestic violence. 

Contains photographs of my work and surgery. You can  read the post without the photos if you need to. There is a labelled gap before they start. But be warned.
I have been a bit busy with work this week and even more busier with getting things set up for my professional licensing exams in the UK (I am licensed for India but require licensing back in the U...

Peace on our Dime - A primer of the history of Israel and Palestine and an simple explanation to the history and indeed the problems faced by both sides and why peace is elusive.
When a zionist once asked me why I think partitioning Israel may have resulted in the current conflict I had to point out that I came from an ethnic group whose identities of Indian, Pakistani and ...

http://freethoughtblogs.com/amilliongods/2014/07/29/a-response-to-sam-harris-so-why-dont-you-criticise-israel-and-palestine/

A Response to Sam Harris - The reality of Israel and Palestine is different from the dialogue of Muslim vs. Jew and the reason for Palestinian violence is entrenched in History that people seem to white wash over.

Measles is a killer. Measles once killed millions per year. The lethality of the disease wasn't high but it was so universally prevalent that it didn't need a high lethality rate. In the developed ...
