Just came from a Sociology lecture on equality, gender discrimination, etc.
And just on a personal note, I realised that people keep looking at all these statistics, trying to have a perfect balance of 50-50 in each sector. We think we have made improvement only when we see equal stats, we see fewer gaps in percentages, etc. It is important to realise that there are always going to be some sectors which are dominated either of the sexes. This may not be due to lack of equal opportunities but simply because of our social and cultural constructs. So instead of trying to get perfect statistics, to achieve equality in every sector, we should instead aim for equal access. By this I mean giving people an equal access to an opportunity, so that if they choose do to something, they are not faced with any gender discrimination.
Thus ‘euality’ shouldn’t be about achieving equal and balanced stats, it should be about providing and having equal access to career paths, education, pay, etc.

I started blogging earlier this year at www.justanotherblogpage.co.cc, but that got boring and i sort of left it there!
But after making a few websites for some amazing clients, i decided it was time i had my own website, and so mansimransingh.com was born. To be honest, i would have liked msingh.com, but that domain name is already taken. After doing a quick whois lookup, i found that the guy has had it registered for about 3 years now, and he doesn’t even have a homepage !! You get a 404 error when visiting msingh.com! Nevermind, I will be buying that domain soon too.
A full site isn’t really planned yet, but this blog is a start. I really dont know what I want on my website; no idea about the content I would like yet, but I guess its a start!
You can stalk me at various places, to find out how visit: www.mansimransingh.com
So I have been sitting here for the past 3 hours uninterested in my French assignment due tomorrow, thinking of something new to do. Something different, well at least for me anyway. After 3 hours of no breaks and serious thinking, I came to the conclusion of creating a blog. How nice of me. . .
So here it is . . .just another blog page =)
Haven’t really decided what I’ll be blogging about . . .but it’s a start . . .
