Hi. My name is Isvari (pronounced eesh-wah-ree). I recently joined The Washington Times and this week will begin writing the new column “Muse on News.” Why I’m writing is simple.

Most teen-agers don’t care about world politics or business and, most world politicians and businessmen don’t care about teen-agers. My columns are for everyone.

They’re about pop culture world news, and everything in between. For example, 10 ways Kim Jong Un is like an American teen-ager. Or the lessons Disney’s Maleficent has for foreign policy. Interesting stuff, huh?

My qualifications: I am both greatly involved in world politics – my B.A. is in political science. I’m a Global Law Scholar at Georgetown Law. I speak six languages, and I have traveled around the globe – and in pop culture – I’m a singer and an author. I also have a background in physics, having worked in particle physics, mathematics, astrophysics, and astronomy at places like Fermilab, CERN, and LBL. So I’m either really multitalented or really mixed-up.

My novel, “The Eyes of Mikra,” is also unique, and people say it’s very good. (Yes, people who are not my family.) It’s about the things war does to people, twisted concepts of duty, sexism and religion. Like my column, there’s something in it for everyone.

Muse on News is going to be a stop-and-think, funny and informative column. I hope you all enjoy reading it.
