Bradford alley

Bradford alley
Somewhat typical residential alley in Bradford.

[After that July 7th thing, soon, in next day or so, New York Times had a journalist dispatched up to Burnley – and she or he took a photo with a kind of similar composition – or idea. (Except it was a photo of Burnely neighborhood near Leeds.) It appeared color on top page – and that photograph brought me back so many memories. [[Her, or his, picture had few kids running – a girl, typical of Muslim neighborhood in UK, wearing such beautiful, long – and running almost like dancing. It is something so beautiful and striking, makes you wonder always why – what we call realities – around – are so dim, and heavy, and seemingly endless in supply. Here – to the Pakistan, and then to Afghanistan – and then –

putting such beautiful clothing for a girl, and girls is part of their culture,
and they do let those young kids – girls – run around, hop around jumping around – it seems that is surely their culture (and we don’t see that in other cultures – our cultures much I believe.)

I wished we could talk to them about this, ask about this, and we all come to know about them more – and then look[do the job of looking] at ourselves more.

The running, or dashing girl’s figure always had this connotation in my eye sight – and now I am coming to know or be able to express it somehow. I am coming away from lot of ‘lobotomies’ – self-censoring, collective censoring – I and my friends acquired there. It seems.

I wanted to grab my European friends’ shoulder and ‘Hey, let’s go ask them.’

I wanted to plan with my British friends, ‘Hey, it’s such a thing. We need to go ask. How it’s called and why and so on.’

I wished my Muslim friends had talked about this. We talked often a lot, so probably I was thinking that there are ways – to work on problems and solutions and efforts would come steadily – or might come from somewhere else.

No, it only seemed those ‘local problems’ required almost ground breaking, historic understanding of how we live, how we humans live. Unless you are always scarce on resources – and – and – any measure proposed, planned or implemented would soon fall short.

[Multiculturalist or whatever may work to some extent, but at the end of the day, if you can’t promise future to those kids and youth, tomorrow’s daddy’s pay and their higher education fees and so on, it’s kind of – (of course there are many other ways of thinking and talking about this issue…)]

How do you sustain industries, how do you sustain employment, [and/or] how do you alter the traditional elements of the culture of the place[racism/culturalism, segregation]. Well, if you succeed on first task, you might get bit more or lot more manageable situation. True.

But how you do that? How we do that?

I only know no one voices this task is one of the top, toughest issues for human beings.

[[[It shifts and it moves. And you need to be at that issue more than issues of say ‘multiculturalism’ or how many papers and books ‘Cultural Studies’ would publish and so on. What would feed the population shifts and moves. And we got to be ready for those changes. We need to stand on top of that. –

I don’t get why people don’t bite this first. This is the first thing.]]]

(And what that means? for our intelligence, being intellectual creatures. Having intelligence, having mind. Having thoughts and books. But we all have no intelligence about this issue. Maybe only place like Singapore can say they got handle over this issue and used to work on this issue.)

That’s how I thought. I thought about this so many times standing on corners and streets of those cities, looking at how people live, carry their lives there.]]

(Industy, business’s competitiveness – governments and business associations etc have some papers and ideas – sometimes, maybe once a year or so – ‘prospect’ – but we may need to connect that with – public. Which sector is winning how or losing and depending on subsidies and so on. May we need to educate each of modern citizens to have ‘literacy’ at least on this issue at very high level.) [Things like EIU(Economist Intelligence Unit), and ‘investors’ sure got idea about these issues to some degree. But people and police and rock throwing youth and social workers and so on haven’t got this thing in their heads.]

Around Leeds – including Burnley, you get (bit weird) red large brick/stone house. Around Bradford, it’s that common, pale yellow/white kind of stones.

But those large plastic garbage buckets(bins) , the shape and contour of the alleys, and how things are and how the people and their kids are – felt quite same.

[*One minor difference is that in Leeds I found there are much more mixed neighborhood. In Bradford there were less of such, I observed. But it may not be true.]
