Gandhi had some faults which prevent me from being impressed with him - he was racist, supported the caste system etc, but that did not stop me respecting him for his significant political acumen.

I visited his ashram when I visited Ahmenadabad (Gujarat) It is now a museum, and is quite honest about the negative parts of his personality (liked to lie next to young women, but was "chaste"?)

I am glad I went.

From what I have heard of her from my friend in New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern is an exceptional politician.

True, I have the utmost respect for her. The one great thing about her as well is that she has caused the toxic segments of the SA expat community in NZ to be uncomfortable.

Interesting article on this topic. While I don't think the amount of couples that meet online in SA is as high as in the US, it is definitely higher than we think and chances are that we all (especially from middle-class households) know someone from our circles who met online. They usually just lie about it.
