Pop Samiti 2009 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019
Before frank_brazil there was Pop Samiti.
Pop Samiti was a publication and platform for a group of artists, writers and activists. A curated space to think about some big questions.
Over two years I worked with a group of talented people and Pop Samiti took form.
Pop Samiti launched at a public event in central London in August 2009, we made history.
To celebrate 10 years of Pop Samiti I’ll be posting notes, thoughts about the project. Follow on Twitter frank_brazil and Instagram tajender_k_sagoo or visit the project website http://www.popsamiti.org/popsamitipaper.html where you also download a pdf of pop samiti magazine.
“According to UN projections by 2025 the population of South Asia* will be an estimated 1.9 bn.
How will this massive population explosion define us as South Asians? What do we have to say? What will be the response of artists, writers, activists and thinkers to this phenomenon? What narratives will emerge and who will define them? What will be the impact on the lives of the South Asians overseas.”

Ridiculously cute but just as ridiculously messed up, Chopper is an example of why just wanting a dog isn't enough reason to buy one.
Surrendered by his owner a couple of weeks ago, Chopper has a sensitive stomach, joints and behaviour that will need to be managed his whole life.
Here's a photo of him all settled in his new home at Tails of Freedom.
If you would like to donate to Tails of Freedom so we can continue to help dogs like him, please please reach out. We are always turning away more dogs than we are able to help due to a lack of funds. #donate#dogrescuesrilanka#dogrescue#dogs#srilanka#adoptdontshop#adoptlove#banbackyardbreeders#animalrescue#animalwelfare
Diese Momente sind nicht dafür da, dass du, zurück im Alltag, dein Leben verteufelst.
Diese besonderen Stunden sind dafür da, sie zu leben. Zu lieben. Zu feiern. Mit deinen Freunden, deinen Liebsten, mit Fremden, nur mit dir ganz allein.
Diese Momente sind dafür da, dich zu stärken. Dir die Energie zu geben, um den vielleicht tristen Alltag zu überstehen. Um dich mit Freude zu beflügeln, die es mit deinen Sorgen aufnehmen kann.
Also nutze diese Momente, um deine Freiheit zu leben, dieses Gefühl in deinem Herzen und mit einem Lächeln im Gesicht zu bewahren und mit anderen zu teilen. 🦋
