Nelson Mandela Dies at 95.

Nelson Mandela, the icon of peace,the tower of love, the African statesman who forgave those who wronged him, dies at 95. Africa has frozen.
 Leaders have come and gone but Mandela remain as a legacy and tribute to our hearts, minds and souls. Young and old loved him from my Native Kenya and here in India a street is named after him in New Delhi, Nelson Mandela Road Vasant Kunj...its show respect and love that he had to India.
The fig tree has fallen the lights have dimmed , winds of time blown away our dad, an inspiring father. Africans gather from villages and the cities, hamlets and tears cloud their visions, we have lost a man who  united Africa and the world, we lost Africa's son, dad .
His legacy of forgiveness remains the tower of peace, liberty,love fraternity and unity. We will walk his path, the journey was long and shortened by death, Nelson Mandela the Letter 'M' the letter of peace a letter of unity and reconciliation..from Mvezo village, a Madiba clan.. wives  Evelyn Mase Winnie Madikizela..Graca Machel..memories of the strong man we will miss you.... From Mandela's words "We shall build a society...where all will be able to walk tall..., a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world... this beautiful land" Touch and inspiring, the journey has begun I shall follow his footsteps to unite the world.
Africa celebrates the life of Nelson Mandela,and mourn his death. He fought the race, he delivered Africa from bondage of apartheid, he forgave, he reconciled and loved all ..a leader to be emulated
Rest in peace Mandela, a river that will flow in peace to our hearts.
Farewell Papa Mandela.

Ninja Journalism

Ninja Reporting is a term still new to journalism student who realize not that they are reporters or the street filming with smart phones in the smart world is part of it.

Chelsea Beats Benfica

 
Chelsea clinches UEFA Europa Cup title (2013); it’s come after last year’s victory in Germany of UEFA Champions league. A sweet victory for 'Romans army', a well deserve win at the death of time. Fernando Torres finally delivers while Branislav Ivanovic seals the victory. Mata plays all goal assistance and that team work. Team spirit.
            Chelsea still the cork of the walk, the Blues rules European skies, and from the Chants last year in Germany to the deafening triumph in Amsterdam a calendar day to remember,11 years on still a true blue and Chelsea for life fan, craze.
              It dramatic Europa league trophy, as the captain lifts the trophy, Chelsea 2 Benfica 1.
From Allianz Arena to Amsterdam Arena, two special cups two different nations, two different years, two diverse teams, Chelsea beat Bayern, Chelsea beat Benfica.
     I asked the dove what’s love?, she responded when you fly into two gardens and come out a winner, I asked blue tit what’s blue?, it’s when Chelsea makes the sky blue and wipes away the clouds and a bright new day is delivered to fans, I (Joshua Boitt) asked  why shed tears? Because the tears will be wiped away with sweet victories and on we march to Stamford singing with the doves and blue tits.
Remember this Benitez beats Benfica, Cech cheats Cardozo and saves the day,
Chelsea did and will do it again, in style with a smile, the game is on next season comes soon with a bang 2013-2014.

Boston Blasts

The world is watching as Boston finish line, goes up in smoke, terror has struck the heart of sports. Celebration ambiance devastated, the second biggest marathon event in the US shattered but the sport spirit lives on as the people are resilient and together humanity defeat social evils that provoke anger and peace and unity will stand tall.
The Boston Marathon blast has ripped the heart of sports, according to news agencies two people have died and scores injured, the overwhelming rescue -spectators and Boston police who rushed to the scene as it was captured on film.
Who was behind it?  what was the motive is? yet to be established, terror might be behind these attacks, and why on innocent people who have no connection with politics, may God protect humanity and may peace and love reign in every heart so that such scenes don't happen in future.
It’s high time that other Marathon venues need security review and cameras at all lanes, the skies are secure, the manholes window and checks to all bags and people attending this major events.

Mary Abigail Schmitz , Joshua Boitt- Poems



Joshua Kipkemoi Boitt

Sunrise
Melodious merry morn, lovely chirrup
The orange orb rising hails Indian summer
Sun burns, summer syrup
Parched land, bemoan Indian farmer
Nesting the cave walls, parrot preys
Cirrus clouds obscure sunrise
Echoes a Buddhist prayer hall, monk prays
The misty valley, secures sunrays
The Taj of Deccan towers, alighted soft morn
Arsul dam breezes, Aurangabad caves breathes heat wave
‘Poor man’s Taj’ of love, forever mourn

Sunset
The red ball descending, beyond the mighty dusk,
 Birds heading east, squirrels climb down, a lofty task
Lonely sunset gliding, washing away sorrows
Gladly glowing, lovely dulcet
Far afield western coast, a promise of a new dawn
Boitt Sleeps, Abigail wakes, Aurangabad-New York world afar

SUNRISE
Reaching, stretching, far as it can
Up over the horizon; illuminates the land
Fingers of purple and heart of gold
Waking all people; young and old
Silently announces the start of the day
Bursting with promise
Chases the darkness away

SUNSET
Slowly drifting
Down and down
Under the branches
Warming the ground
Resting its rays for tomorrow's light
Slowly, slowly
Out of sight

Strength of a woman



By Joshua Boitt.
We praise heroes every day, but we forget to eulogize heroines, the world progresses by an invincible hand which continue to reach out, mend the net of peace and harmony.
Whether the Peruvian woman in a South African prison giving birth she cares for her child upright, The tears of refugee aged 105 from Syria across the border ,her cries resonates the motherly love, for she remembers those who suffer in the hands of men she sees bodies and yearns for peace as men wage war.
I salute women, their grand efforts unfettered, their strength unmatched, as they march into the eye of centuries of male subjugated society they subdue all obstacles, pick a spot for future posterity for children. May women grow strong to marshal a promising tomorrow!
Men rule women lead, every touch sparks a success, and for every woman’s advice gratitude grows in the family. Motherly love forever remembered. Mothers sacrifice their moment in life and pride to take us across the bridge of time, they trudge the cold slopes of gender stereotype to guide, love, and care. Grandma’s simple night stories by the fire touches our hearts, the delicacy from the kitchen keep us alive.
Every inspiration springs out a womans’ heart, for a complete movie a woman is at the helm, happiness stems out of woman. A man builds’ a house, women built a home, they share responsibilities and create infinite possibilities for intricate opportunities in a man’s life.
Rising with kitchen smoke to kings throne of power,let sgive girls opportunities. Hillary Clinton, Condoleza Rice, Dilma Rouseff, Mother Teresa continues to bring inspiration to every girl opening the hall of female destiny that awaits them. Rise young girls take you position in the society and forever skies will be added with butterflies and flowers not only soccer balls and kites.
As a man walked he is proud because there is a woman. For every courageous man on the stage there is a whisper of woman urging him to go! Go!
May the chains of gender stereotypes be broken and a 50/50 society where all have equal career opportunities and a platform to accomplish dreams. Rise young women Rise!

Battle of the ballots - Kenya


Kenya's Elections
Kenyans have decided to set an example to the rest of the world for which its leaders failed in the 2007/2008 elections violence that marred after the disputed elections. The memories are vivid and my articles (2008) of lament remain unedited and for which I will post to my blog joshuaboitt@blogspot.in
Our leaders divided the nation into tribal lines  ..a coalition is the only bridge but the truth behind every mind and heart for my people nation comes first. A trend that the new constitution needs to address and the national cake be divided along each and every tribe that live under my mother Kenya peace Kenya peace!
My heart goes to the 15 Kenyans who lost their lives in wake of the historic day that Kenyans went to the polls, may the perpetrators of the heinous killings be brought to book and lets heal the nation and unite into one Kenya.’ Pamoja kama njiwa wawili’ ,together like two doves.
May solace reigns forth in this times and lets merge with the rising South Africa and the rest of the Bric nations its never too late to mend the rank and file and bring them on board, for the greater East Africa that will bring peace once more to Somalia, Sudan and other nation a model to emulate beyond the boarders of Africa.
The government failed to bring truth and reconciliation commission to solve the pent up issues of tribalism and now Hague decides the case who will heal the wounds, then
The issues at hand the economy in shambles, the price rise and inflation bites the common loyal man who will help them, truly we vote and still it’s a vicious cycle of politicians who have been in politics half of their lives, may a new dawn of the new constitution be a platform for change cater for all the people of Kenya.
Regional Conflict
Alqaeda and the Alshabaab, the separatist in the coastal region in the Town  Mombasa have become  a wall to  peace and effort s ,urgent need to resolve the issues and clear the region from Terror and peace reign. East Africa is the Gateway to Central Africa which will open up trade routes and develop the region, the International communities have a scheme afoot to ameliorate on the pent up issues resolve the conflict that have engulfed not only the region but also the entire world, with piracy in the horn Africa on the rise, one solution, give the youth education and introduce an alternative to pastoralist with irrigation and crop farming that will be an alternative source of food..
Post –poll Alliances be of a better future of the country rather than scoring political points and holding on to power.
Who cares!,  Kenyans do the politicians don’t ,cant wait to see the youth being brought onboard to develop the nation ,every day the toil and work ,the efforts unseen for they are given the opportunity to exploit their talents, give then education ,open a door for opportunities and send them abroad to study and add knowledge bank to the kids for future posterity.
Unfulfilled campaign pledges for the last decade and its time make meaningful pledges and abide by the constitution and let every hardworking Kenyan be given a chance to contribute to the development .There is  a huge gap between the real issues on the ground and those in the August House and now its time to connect  ,blue print issues and matters that are at hand on the ground. The media in Kenya a sleeping wildebeest  ,it’s a time for it wake up and stop dividing the nation into two lines, set the agenda and call a ‘jembe a jembe’ while on the other hand the government free the media, from the state organs.
Political delusion are over and the ballot has won the day bullets silent, Kenya has risen amid the shadows of 2007, the blatant selling of advert spaces and being eagles rather that turtle doves, hope to see a strong media that will not hunt for cake from politicians rather the issues at hand in villages and bring it to international media .They should sell the development issues to interaction media rather that buying local news from wire agencies and giving people recycled news and views.
Thanks to the new constitution that will restore democracy to Kenya and its neighbors may floow suit, but the new posts of governor and senator surely one seat should have been created thus the introduction was timeless for selfish gains ,Kenya is such a small country and needed not all this post rather the effect will be felt a year into the new era, and electorate will feel the pinch ,those who introduced it either had altered motives or were ill adviced,back to the drawing board, federalism fails in a small democracy ..
From India With love,Peace ! Kenya
