1 year, 2 months and 25 days later…

It, indeed, has been 1y 2m and 25d since I last published on here. That's 451 days.  Bloody hell 451 days of going AWOL in this space. I am back now and I will continue to post. One thing that has revived my thoughts in continuing to write is BBC - The Big British Asian …
