For many dedicated Americans of South Asian ...

Vote Column A, We Finally Have a Choice!

July 3, 2020

I moved to Piscataway in 1997. Shortly after, in 2000, Brian Wahler was elected mayor of this town. He was re-elected again in 2004, 2008, 2012, and re-elected once more in 2016. Like everyone else, I read the posts and comments on Facebook saying "Vote him out" and "King Wahler must go" and "Somebody please challenge this guy." 

Well, at long last, somebody ...

Vote Column A to Protect Our Health & Our Environment

In Piscataway, we are facing an Environmental Crisis because of Global Climate Change.

Are our elected leaders preparing our community well for it? I say no.

As a long-time resident of our town, I have more questions than I have answers about what our current officials are doing:

Why don’t we have an elected environmental commission with OPEN Meetings?

Why did the Mayor and Town ...

Thank You, Piscataway Police Officers!

Just wanted to give a huge thank you to Piscataway Police. Tonight my phone alerted me there was activity going on in my backyard. Turns out, it seems like someone was trying to break into my work truck. 

I can't thank PPD's response time and professionalism enough! Once called, I would say the response time was no longer than 3 minutes. If the thieves had been successful in ...

In Addition to Nixing Freeholder, Murphy Says ‘We’re Constantly Thinking Through’ Other Name Changes 

NEW JERSEY — Removing “freeholder” from New Jersey’s 21 county legislative boards will mean the country’s full eradication of the title — which has been called confusing, insensitive and racist.

Celebrating the Communities We Build

So, you may have noticed I missed a week, which is odd because I had something written, not this but something. My excuse is this – COVID has warped my sense of time, I go to make my Thursday call on Tuesday then on Friday I wonder how I missed Thursday. Holidays have the potential to go unnoticed too – I’m horrible with dates so forgetting my own birthday is fairly easy even in ...

The Voice of a Poet: To Those Leaving Elementary School in June 2020

July 5, 2020

I imagine that, for some of you, being graduated by your elementary school doesn’t feel like much at all—just another day in your house, trying to stay out of your parents’ way while they dutifully work from their makeshift home offices.

But you’d be wrong to think that this isn’t much at all. This is a momentous occasion. You have done what no generation of ...

Carved in Stone Too

A Monumental History Lesson Part 2

It is difficult to topple a mountain. Particularly if the mountain rises 800 feet from the ground, covers 583 acres, and is made of granite.

It is not like lassoing an iron horse and its rider from a concrete pedestal and heave-hoing it into pieces on the ground. Mountains are no pushovers.

Such is the dilemma with Stone Mountain in Georgia, recognized ...

Are You a Prisoner of Your Own Life? Three Steps to Free Yourself.

Have you seen the movie, All I Wanna Do? It’s a relatively unknown film from the late 1990s. On the surface, this movie about an all-girls boarding school in the early 1960s is fluff. But as the story develops, we learn that some of the girls are there because they are rebels, hard to handle, there because their parents didn’t know what else to do. Fluff, fluff, ...
