Ill second that – I started reading your blog a few days ago and have read almost all the articles (and comments!) with interest. It’s not too dissimilar a story from elites (wealth/power wise – not intelectually) in most developing countries, such as Pakistan where even some self-styled future leaders grow up in Britain/USA. Thanks for the insights, would be great if you restarted your blog at some point. Take care
I am from New Zealand but spent a month in Bahrain earlier this year and was put on to your blog by some friends of mine who I met there. I found Bahraini culture fascinating and have been reading the Nido blog with interest.
I would also second the comments above, and call on you to resume blogging during the situation that is unfolding in Bahrain at the moment. I have heard a lot from friends of mine in Bahrain who feel totally disenfranchised by the current political system, but it would be enlightening to hear from someone from the ‘Nido’ generation in light of current events.
People from this generation presumably are major beneficiaries of the current status quo, but are also presumably influenced by western ideals of democracy and equality. How is this reconciled amongst this group of young people?
It would be great to hear your thoughts, and well done for a fantastic blog in general.
