March for justice

Today, around one hundred thousand landless people and families in India have started on a march to Delhi, covering three hundred kilometres in thirty days. Their call is for access to land, food and the right to security.

The march is organised by Ekta Parishad, a mass movement focused on non-violent activism.

  1. Hello Edward, not apposite to the blog but in response to your Q re ‘blue chip’ Wikipedeia As befits the high-risk nature of stock picking, “blue chip” derives from poker. The simplest sets of poker betting discs include white, red, and blue chips, with tradition dictating that the blues are highest in value. If a white chip is worth $1, a red is usually worth $5, and a blue $10. The etymology may come from the color’s royal lineage—an aristocrat is known as a “blue blood”. Blue blood is a translation of the Spanish phrase sangre azul, which described the Spanish royal family and other high nobility who claimed to be of Visigothic descent, in contrast to the Moors.[3]

    Good to see you,

    Best wishes

    David
