IMPRESSIONS FROM ZERMATT-MATTERHORN (Satis Shroff)

Impressions From Zermatt-Matterhorn (Satis Shroff)



Sunrise at the Gornergrat 3089 m above sea level and a hearty Continental breakfast in the 3100m high Kulmhotel Gornergrat. What a delightful and unforgettable experience with the panorama of the Alps right in front of you. For people who’ve been to the Himalayas, it’s like breakfast at Lukla or Namche Bazaar. Albeit, with the exception that the Swiss do pamper you with the very best from their kitchen and… Continue

ADIEU, Mr. Jackson (Satis Shroff)

We Love You, Mr. Jackson (Satis Shroff)



Your longing for your mythical island:

Neverland,

Got the better of you.

We still hear your high pitched voice

Haunting us in our dreams.

We love you.



Michael Joseph Jackson,

Born in Gary, Indiana

On August 29, 1958

Is at peace with the world,

Despite the persisting tumult

Here on earth.

We love you.



So long Mr. Jackson

Wherever you are.

The moment…

President Obama and the Traumatic Tales of the Holocaust (Satis Shroff, Freiburg)

Barack Obama: Three Yellow Roses On a Grey Day (Satis Shroff)





It was a grey, cold day and a frosty wind blew at the Buchenwald concentration camp, near Weimar. The 44th US Prisident Barack Obama, Elie Wiesel, Bertrand Herz, Angela Merkel and their selected entourage went through the gate which carried the words: Jedem das Seine.



In this concentration camp alone 56,000 people were killed by the Nazis, not to speak of Auschwitz, Amersfoort, Warsaw and… Continue

Commentary:

Holocaust and KZ Syndrome, Lest We Forget (Satis Shroff)



The German pope has indeed damaged the pontificate and the church, even though it was Cardinal Hoyos who’d ignored what sort of people the four members of the Pius-Brotherhood were. The four had been excommunicated in 1988. These bishops, especially Bishop Williamson, have… Continue

A minstrel's wanderings and experiences in the Himalayan republic of Nepal





Gainey: A Minstrel’s Songs of Love and Sorrow (Satis Shroff)




Once upon a time,

my grandpa said:

“In Nepal even a child

Can walk the countryside alone.”

It’s just not true,

Not for a Nepalese,

Born with a sarangi in his hand.



I’m a musician,

One of the lower caste

In the Hindu hierarchy.
