RidingRiding by Cassia Cassitas
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The sky is beginning to turn dark.
Night is soon going to spread its wings to cover the globe.
A star has surfaced on the canvas of dark- then a second-then a third……
Soon there will be million zillion diamonds spreading the depth of the sky.
The mother asked her son-‘let’s have food.’
The innocent child asked his mother-‘where’s dad?’
Perhaps-thousand miles away- his father was looking at the same sky-at the same instant-perhaps thinking of his wife….perhaps thinking of his son….perhaps thinking something other.
That’s how the life flows!
Riding by Cassia Cassitas is a coming of age story of the dream and aspiration of a boy-a boy who has learnt the lessons of life from the nature, the people and from experience. The book itself is like a garland of story stories- every story blends some unique aroma of life and sewed together to form the symphony of life- life that always flows overcoming boulders, stones that comes into its way!

Transactionalism and U.S. Foreign Aid

A draft of a new presidential directive on American foreign aid suggests that transactionalism will shift from being a rhetorical device to an actual defining principle. How will the continued departure from the pre-2016 bipartisan consensus impact the foreign aid community?
