The Loss of Mental Metamorphosis & Other Poems (Satis Shroff)

The Loss of Mental Metamorphosis (Satis Shroff)

Eight Indians on the run,

Fifty Neonazis behind them.

'Deutschland den Deutschen,

Ausländer raus! Hier regiert der nationale Widerstand!'

Roars from the throats of the Neos,

Beer in their blood,

Defiance in their sanguine eyes.

The puls races,

Adrenalin surges in the veins:

Fight or flight.

Impressions From Central Switzerland (Satis Shroff, Freiburg)


Impressions From Central Switzerland (Satis Shroff)

It’s a sunny afternoon when Claudia and I boarded the ICE (Inter City Express) train from the Black Forest town Freiburg, then switch trains at the Swiss Badische Bahnhof (SBB) and travelled via Olten in a Swiss regional train towards Luzern. The train sped past small hills, spurs, lakes, scores of tunnels and towns with church spires, Swiss cows and horses grazing on the lush green meadows.

Inside… Continue

The British and the Gurkhas: Worlds Apart? (Satis Shroff, Freiburg)

The British and the Gurkhas: Worlds Apart? (Satis Shroff, Freiburg)

Even though generations of Nepalese soldiers called the fearsome Gurkhas, have fought Britain's colonial and other wars (Falklands, Croatia, Iraq) the Gurkhas don't have the same rights as ordinary British citizens.

It was a magnificent scenario: the proud Royal Scouts led British cadets, Territorial Army and Gurkhas over Waverly Bridge and along Princes Street. The Gurkhas were led by a man in… Continue

"Will the passengers please fasten their seat belts," said a soft voice over the intercom. And I slid one end of the belt into the heavy metallic slot, sat back, and peered through the window of the Royal Nepal jet.

The runway was clear and there was an Airbus 310, three Russian-made helicopters and a Dornier-aircraft near the control tower of Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport. Some people waved from the tower. It was one of those early-morning mountain flights that are run… Continue

The Lure of the Himalayas (Satis Shroff)

Since 1974 I have been living on and off in Nepal, writing articles and publishing books about Nepal, this beautiful Himalayan country. Even before I knew Satis Shroff personally (later) I was deeply impressed by his articles, which helped me very much to deepen my knowledge about Nepal. Satis Shroff is one of the very few Nepalese writers being able to compare ecology, development and modernisation in the ‘Third’ and ‘First’ World. He is doing this with great enthusiasm, competence and… Continue

Impressions From Italy (Satis Shroff, Freiburg)

It was a bright sunny morning when Claudia, Giacomo, Silvana I headed for Italy from Freiburg. The first Swiss town we went through was Basel, which is known for its university and chemical firms near the Swiss-German border.

The sky was a cobalt-blue as we sped through the Arisdorf tunnel. In Switzerland you have to go through a lot of tunnels. The Swiss have introduced a vignette system whereby every car has to have a sticker pasted on its windscreen at a cost of 30 Swiss francs… Continue
