We will not go down..

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight

We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Barack Obama the Architect !!??

This is not another percieved “blowing my own trumpet” post 😛 , something i do a lot of google searches is on Architecture, and these days a rather cliched google search is Barack Obama. So dont blame me that i get this odd snippet of wierd information when i had no intention of discovering it in the first place.

Being a politician is a profession, but somehow i see it in a totally different league of a profession than say, a Lawyer, an Engineer or a Medical Doctor, the difference being that you can end up being a politician irrespective of the professional circle you belong to.It is extremely rare to find an established politician take up in his latter life the study of Law,Engineering or Politics, but an established Lawyer,Engineer or Doctor is at generous liberty circumstantially to take to politics whenever he wants.

Amongst the educated circles of Politicians, i have to stress this as there are total dumb asses donning the politicians cloak today, anyway amongst the educated circles of politicians some of them if not most are established in the legal profession, so to keep it short most lawyers take up politics.

What about Architects? well this is rather hard to swallow. but something which i have noticed is that inspite of the negligible amount of Architects who take up politics, the few who take it up have somehow been extremely succesful politicians and well respected statesman.

The moment someone says Thomas Jefferson, someone else would say third president of the US before you have the time to say OBAMA! but what is little known is that he was an extremely successful Architect before he took to politics. See some of his Architecture works here.

Binyamin Netanyahu, the Hawkish former Prime Minister of Israel was an Architect from the University of Jerusalem before he took to Politics, I have no respect for his political ideology whatsoever given his hardline attitude to the palestinian suffering, nevertheless that doesnt negate the fact that he is a charismatic smart leader.

Now Obama,now who would have thought! According to the Daily Telegraph he would have taken to Architecture if he didnt take to politics, wonder what kind of Architect he may have been.

Further more Obama intends to open a basket ball court in the white house grounds, and his favourite Artist is Pablo Picasso. Now the debate opens up, who can do more social good, Politicians or Architects ? After all politicians have in the past commissioned top Architects to make buildings that reflect their strength or intimidate their opponents, and will continue to do so. Just ask Adolf Hitler he’ll tell you.
