Review by Mekonnen Kassa, Seattle, WA.
In the interest of full disclosure, I came to know about Mr. Habtemariam, an Eritrean-American poet and author, while I was browsing...“Hearts Like Birds” is an absorbing literary fusion of history, culture, politics, religion, and folklore all rolled in to one book.

Betreseltan from VOA Tigrigna interview with ato Alem Biset from Tigrai regional government.

Betreseltan asked Ato Alem about the reported drought and malnutrition in Ethiopia. Ato Alem denied there is any drought specific related malnutrition but acknowledged the deep rooted poverty is still a problem in many ways in Tigrai!
  part I
Thank you VOA Tigrigna and thank you Betreseltan! We can only hope other regional governments will take matters in to their own hand and report of any danger caused by drought or otherwise! This will help in two ways: 1) if there is indeed drought that could cause famine down the road, people all over the world will be informed and lives will be saved by their donation and b) if the news is exaggerated or outright false, it will save many hearts from being heartbroken due to the dreadful news of famine that is being fanned by the lords of poverty.

A documentary about the past and the present state of Ethiopia and rebuilding the nation again, Endegena.
Good documentary!.
We wish the producers ventured outside the City and include interviews from those who were affected by the famine, their take on the changes they have seen since and also, have at least incorporated the stories of the likes of Amora somehow! You know the "quchit" of today that we are putting high hopes to turn us in to a developed nation started when the likes of Amora said "beqa" in 1967!
