I’m a 20-something Pakistani-Canadian studying medicine in Australia. My previous academic background is in English, Political Science, and Political Economy with particular interests in post-colonial theory, critical development theory, political Islam, and political ecology. As may be evident from my varied academic interests, social justice is something very close to my heart. So I’m always interested in exploring paths that take us towards more socially just societies within which people of different ethnic, social, economic and political backgrounds can live dignified lives.
This blog has to main goals. First, it’s a collection of my thoughts on issues of interest to me. Second, it’s a catalogue of all things that are of interest to me, particularly from the subject areas of medicine, politics, religion, music, literature and ecology.
