Khorramshahr, Iran, May 1982—It was the bloodiest battle of one of the most brutal wars of the twentieth century, and Najah, a twenty-nine-year-old wounded Iraqi conscript, was face to face with a thirteen-year-old Iranian child soldier who was ordered to kill him. Instead, the boy committed an astonishing act of mercy. It was an act that decades later would save his own life. This is a remarkable story. It is gut-wrenching, essential, and astonishing. It’s a war story. A love story. A page-turner of vast moral dimensions. An eloquent and haunting act of witness to horrors beyond grimmest fiction, and a thing of towering beauty. More importantly, it is a story that must be told, and a richly textured view into an overlooked conflict and misunderstood region. This is the great untold story of the children and young men whose lives were sacrificed at the whim of vicious dictators and pointless, barbaric wars. Little has been written of the Iran-Iraq war, which was among the most brutal conflicts of the twentieth century, one fought with chemical weapons, ballistic missiles, and cadres of child soldiers. The numbers involved are staggering: —All told, it claimed 700,000 lives—200,000 Iraqis, and 500,000 Iranians. —Young men of military service age—eighteen and above in Iraq, fifteen and above in Iran—died in the greatest numbers. —80,000 Iranian child soldiers were killed, mostly between the ages of sixteen and seventeen. —The two countries spent a combined 1.1 trillion dollars fighting the war. Rarely does this kind of reportage succeed so power- fully as literature. More rarely still does such searingly brilliant literature—fit to stand beside Remarque, Hemingway, and O’Brien—emerge from behind “enemy” lines. But Zahed, a child, and Najah, a young restaurateur, are rare men—not just survivors, but masterful, wondrously gifted storytellers. Written with award-winning journalist Meredith May, this is literature of a very high order, set down with passion, urgency, and consummate skill. This story is an affirmation that, in the end, it is our humanity that transcends politics and borders and saves us all.

DescriptionThis is a collection of short stories, poems and essays which chart a journey through the counter-culture, regular hospitalizations, psychosis, depression and addictions. But not only my own, it includes essays on others who had a similar voyage e.g. Beat poet: Elise Cowen who died age 29 unpublished and is now recognized as a major poet in that genre and on the beliefs which both created conflict with the system but also had the capacity to sustain throughout. About the AuthorHe was born in 1959. Home was troubled and he run away to London age 13, lived in the 'counter-culture' in various well organized squats. Became ill after about 9 months and was placed in the Care of the local council. Then fostered to a radical academic couple, although that didn't survive long and he went back underground; eventually being arrested in Guildford. The magistrate slapped statuary 'Care Order' on him saying 'He was in need of care and protection.' At 14 he went to live in Hollymoor Hospital in Birmingham; this would be age 14-16.He was fairly frequently restrained and given injections of chlorpromazine. Upon discharge he lived for a short time in the 'Birmingham Settlement', but became ill and was moved to a specialist manic-depressive unit where he first had ECT, age 16. Care Order was revoked at 17 but substance abuse continued with regularly admissions to Central Hospital with psychotic episodes and would sometimes go into semi-catatonia. A 20 he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Some of the admissions were for periods of around a year. At the age 25 had specialist help with substance abuse problems and he has been 'clean' 24 years and 'dry 13 years'. In 1984 he was hearing a lot of voices and seeing things, spent a year in Central Hospital, two years in a Pre-discharge Unit in the community and then eight years in 'group homes', but he now lives in his own flat with 'Support Workers' visiting twice a week and a nurse once every two weeks. He sees a psychiatrist every three months. His body became toxic with medication in 2003 and was seriously ill physically, but is now on newer meds and is much better. He has a B.A (Hons) from the Open University and a 'Certificate in English Studies' at Warwick University, does a little job in a bookshop once a week and runs a small magazine that he produces every two months. He is now 49 and unfortunately has Hep C. He experienced three episodes of fairly minor abuse when a teenager and during the whole period their have been some nurses etc who have made his life difficult because of a firmly held leftist ideological perspective.

Even as they produce food for society and its people, lives dependent on agriculture are barely able to make ends meet. The cost of food production far outweighs the returns; the peasantry is falling prey to indebtedness, both institutionalized and non- institutionalized. It is facing the severest of challenges, with even dalit landless labourers becoming victims of indebtedness and succumbing to suicide, Based on a study done in eight districts of the Malwa region of the Punjab, this book uses quantitative data along with field work, narratives and interviews with peasant unions. Over136 families have been interviewed where women as wives and mothers of the deceased speak of the aftermath of the suicide. The book outlines the distress borne by the family, including women, the children and the elderly in the aftermath of peasant suicides. By doing so, it interrogates the split between public and private; production and social reproduction; work and family. It highlights the determining character of capitalist-intensive agriculture in today's crisis times by focusing on women's reality and renewed hardships in a caste, class and patriarchal society.

I never paid too much attention about my health. I ignored the symptoms for months. Thank God for looking out for me and my ignorance. I should have paid attention to the constant headaches, weariness and constantly feeling tired. I was being unreasonable as there were so many days I was drained and worn out. I did not have any idea as to why my sugar level stayed elevated. I sort of watched the things I was eating. I found out that many things can elevate your sugar level. I had deluded myself for a long time. It was not until I became chronically ill and then I could tell everyone, having a stroke is such a rude awakening. It is a sad situation losing your thoughts, your mobility and almost losing your life. It is so tough realizing you can barely move. My story shows how God specializes in anything and everything that has appeared as impossible. My life took such a turn as I could not think, be in motion, or simply talk. If you have any rivers you think you cannot cross just tell yourself God specializes as He carries you through. Jesus had my entire situation in the palms of His hands. As I think back how my family was so torn apart, frighten, and afraid over how distort things had gotten. My right side had become dormant. I really needed a great deal of help after the Lord stepped in and showed everyone I would live and not die. I vividly was lying from down in that hospital from day-to-day telling myself Jesus is that perfect answer. I laid there almost in a comatose state. I was able to think if we have any mountains that we think cannot climb, Jesus will pick you up and enable you to do what seems is without a solution any particular situation regardless to what it is He will help us to climb this mountain. He did it for me and He will do it for anyone who asks for help. My situation of having a stroke was so graphic. My entire family was so devastated. I was one who was so energetic preaching, teaching, running and working through the community. I stayed busy trying to help others rather than really taking good care of myself. Thank God for looking out for me because I had been deceived mentally. I am working hard to get better. I can tell somebody God does specialize in anything that has presented itself to impossible.
