Reflecting On Georgetown At COP21

PARIS – Le Bourget, the location of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, was surprisingly far from the center of Paris. Conference-goers got off in the periphery of the metro at Fort d’Aubervilliers before taking a shuttle ride that offered views of the fairly drab suburb of Le Bourget,[Read More…]

SHRINATH: A Time for Reflection, Dialogue

SHRINATH: A Time for Reflection, Dialogue

French fierte is subtler than American pride. Flags are not omnipresent, the national anthem does not play before every sporting event and spontaneous chants of “F-R-A-N-C-E” do not break out, well, ever. The French are more confident and assured, so proud of their superior culture that they don’t even need[Read More…]

There is very little that I have to say that is important. While I had planned to mass-produce another article detailling something silly or slightly stupid, like I’ve done recently, in light of the recent acts of terrorism, nothing seems worth discussing. How can I plaintively discuss my disastrous attempts[Read More…]

SHRINATH: Lessons That Solitude Will Teach You

In the middle of October, I took a nine-day trip through four cities in Spain — by myself. On the one hand, travelling alone is brilliant. With no one else dictating what to see, I could do whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. In Barcelona, I walked an average of[Read More…]
