Here are three very interesting and informative posts from last week that I just have to link up to. The first two are on Kalsoom’s blog. One is about the Grameen Bank style approach to micro-finance in Pakistan. This is the story of providing the poor with access to credit. The second addresses a really important topic that has been on my mind from time to time: why women raise their own sons to be disrespectful to women (to put it mildly). The third post is a Q&A by Ahsan of Rafay Alam who is an environmental activist, lawyer and columnist. They discuss public transport, city planning and energy issues in Pakistan. Very very interesting.
