This is regarding the image of Bruce Lee that you used on your Horoscopes page for Bahrain Confidential’s November issue. He hadn’t worn a shirt and I think that’s very obscene. Many women read your magazine and sometimes even young adults. You need to be careful about using appropriate images in your magazine.

Dear Ashamed Guy, please don’t be! ‘Cos we aren’t! What on earth made you feel that the image is obscene? It’s an image of the martial artist ready for combat and that is his attire. In fact you need to give it to him that he has worked so hard to earn that fit body. Are you just jealous that you don’t have a body like that? Hit the gym instead of cooking up such nonsense; and just a heads-up, a lot of women go to the gym – there may be one secretly watching you work out!

Go Vegan!


I have one question for Bahrain Confidential. On one hand your magazine promotes non vegetarian food by printing promotions and images of meat. On the other you advocate kindness to animals. Funny how convenience talks, no? You promote whatever gives you good readership I suppose. I was born into a non vegetarian family, but stopped eating meat when I was very young. Animal slaughter is loaded with cruelty and apathy; we must exercise self control over our diet because the lives of these poor creatures are at stake!


Dear Palak, thank you for the compliment; we had so much fun interviewing these leaders and the photoshoot with them just brought out the lighter side to things – we will cherish this feature forever. We love the point your father mad mode; he is so right! We need all kinds of people in the world to attain the right balance.

The ‘Leaders In Bahrain’ feature that you ran in your November issue was really nice. It’s assuring to see the informal side to such established individuals; it makes you believe that one day you can reach there too. I believe that leaders are born and not made. When I was younger I used to feel very bad that I’m not a leader; but my father told me that it was okay because if everyone was a leader then we’d have no followers. Palak

Click Click I was going through your magazine and would like to compliment you on your images. I do photography too and would like to contribute to Bahrain Confidential. Please do let me know how we can take this forward. Amer
