    Dr. Rajendra Kale, who recently ended his position as interim editor of the Canadian Medical Association Journal, has gone out with a bang.

    In 2005, world leaders unanimously agreed that in situations where governments were manifestly failing in their sovereign duty, the international community, acting through the United Nations, would take "timely and decisive" action to honour the collective responsibility to protect people against atrocity crimes.

    Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini made history in providing the leadership to the movement that drove the Shah from power in Iran. He made his mark in the domain of sexuality as well. Fereydoon Molkara barged into his presence and brought his tear-filled problem, that he was, as he experienced it, a woman trapped in a male body.
