Black vs white vs the many shades of grey

Most people wear either black or white. Only some people wear grey. Grey is often considered a dull colour. It's the same with opinions: most have a micro or a macro focus. Few opinions are in between (ie, gray/grey). Why is grey (eg, colour, opinion) considered as dull? Why don't we like grey? People consider their skin colour as either black or white. However,...

The Good Karma Hospital (Amazon)

Several months ago, I watched The Good Karma Hospital, rated #7.8 at IMDb, on Amazon Prime Video. The filming location is superb, although sources differ on its location: either a fictional town (Barco) in the area of Kerala in south-west India (eg, Express), or Unawatuna in southern Sri Lanka (eg, RadioTimes, Wiki).

I made three rounds, while...

Black Man in a White World

I am fortunate not being a black man in white America. Actually, I'm also glad not being a white man living in USA. At times, European (white) privileges have its advantages.
