How is it that children become embroiled in conflict, turning into machines of war that kill without thought or fear?
This week on Asia Calling we hear the story of one Indonesian child commander, caught up in the brutal religious conflict of Ambon in the early 90s.
But the real story is what he is up to now – using art and music to unite Muslims and Christian communities.
We’re also going to be hearing about stirrings of a Dalit uprising in India and a controversial Dam project in Burma.
We have all that and more coming up on this week’s show.
