It was a memorable visit to Winnipeg last month. I was amazed to see the magnificent building and the information provided inside the Canadian Human Rights Museum that was created a few years back.

It’s first museum of its type in world that speaks volumes of the courage of a country that recognises the violations of human rights committed by her in the past and yet creates such an institution which houses the history of Human Rights protagonists from all over the globe.

It is a huge house of information on the heroes spread over the Millenniums in time and whole of the globe in space. You can even see an impressive entry of the recent hero Malala from Pakistan. There also is a statue of Mahatma Gandhi outside the main entrance and his relevant mention inside the Museum. The designer of the imposing building from US had some other ideas in his mind but,to me,it appeared as showing the cuddle of so many people that culminates into a torch-like structure which signifies the awakening of human values. The building is at once impressive and meaningful; and like any great creative work this design also has multiple meanings. I am thankful to my friend Comrade Gurdeep who spared a full day for this visit.

The honest truth is there is still reluctance around immigration policy... When we want to talk about immigration and we say we want to bring more immigrants in because it's good for the economy, we still get pushback.
