Hello welcome to my Blog

Mezze is widely served in the Greek and Middle eastern world. An assortment of little dishes and tasters which accompany a nice ouzo or a glass of wine. So when you read mezze moments you will have tasty snippets of life as I live it, India for four years and now Brisbane Australia, all served up with some Greek fervour and passion.

Flower girl

In today's India Times
"16 year old raped by neighbour and two others"
"Guard arrested for raping three year old in school"
"Rape victim dies after self immolation"
And that is just one day's news  
I came across her in the road yesterday and I was very taken by her hazel, doe-like eyes, the beautiful earrings, the red sari, the nose ring, the colour of her skin and her smile.It  is times like these when I feel that there is something profoundly worrying in this society because while she is out there selling her flowers to maintain her dignity she is out on the street and vulnerable, like so many other children and young people, to the evils that surround her.
