30 Years later, i still vividly recall my emotions when I got this coin ... Issued on the Centenary of Jawaharlal Nehru in 1989 as a 5 rupee coin

@Saikatd Privilege! Such a heavy word! But yes, some of us were privileged, we had fairly easy childhoods; but most of us had parents that were strict & refused to let that get to our heads. We had to earn rights to a lot of stuff, we were taught humility & sharing & caring. We were taught to confront bullies, protect ourselves & others, friends or not. As is the case in the services (was till divisive forces gained a upper hand) there were no differences, religion, community or caste based (1)

@aab1dh A simple request please. Too many ppl in the conversation. If you are directing your comments to a specific person, pls lead with that person and loop the others in toward the end. This toot is an example.

@KayKap yes... InshaAllah... Those who have the potential to grow must and shud grow irrespective of the financial position of the family.

Big eg. is Sundar Pichai, he hails from a lower middle class family and c where he is now. If the current proposed JNU policy is to be applied then, no bright students from lower income group will rise or come up. Such bright students will perish and this is what the ruling party exactly wants.

@KayKap @CharismaticSal_ @Vishsai స్వాతంత్ర్యం ప్రజాస్వామ్యం శాంతి అభ్యుదయం సోషలిజం .( Independence democracy peace development and equality), which BJP RSS never accept students always expect. That's why all this mess

@KayKap To be honest I love India. It is one of the most amazing places on earth. But it is not without flaws and there are places where it needs to improve. Sorry if it sounded too negative.

Kirti boosted

@KayKap I am not picking on India. I am just making observations. That is the culture I grew up and the only real experience I have dealing with. I can compare and contrast and comment on what is good and bad. Right? Good is as I mentioned before family ties and culture and food. But work culture, ethic and corruption — I am not a fan off.

@Sadiqkazi It is, and I'm cautiously optimistic about a return to decentralised networks. Though I'm concerned that many on Mastodon don't realise we're being hosted by individuals who put in time, effort and their own cash to keep their servers and instances running.

Getting off corporate-run Internet services also means returning to a community-run model, which depends on volunteers to donate/ moderate/ help out. I hope we can all step up more in the future.

@Deepsealioness all men are sexist at some level, in some role. Maybe as father, brother, son, lover or friend. We can't imagine the level patriarchy has penetrated our minds. It appears in so many thoughts which seem harmless at first.
Perhaps the next generation born in the internet explosion age will change that.
btw don't punch me :welp:

When a white American hippie like David Frawley teaches Sanskrit, it's perfectly ok for Sanghis.

But when a Indian Muslim teaches Sanskrit, it's Blasphemy.

The love for white skin is a special trait for the Indian Right Wing.

Hi. By way of #Introduction, I would love to connect with fellow printmakers, artists, writers, gardeners, Welsh speakers/learners, LGBTQIA+ and those with irreverent senses of humour. I have passed on my world-saving batton to those who are younger, less disillusioned than me, and have decided my job is to cheer you on from the side lines and hand out segments of oranges when it all gets a bit much. I’m a great mentor, encourager and validator. Probably because I’m desperate for someone to do that for me. Feels don’t scare me, but people who don’t give a shit do. Most worrying thing about my life at the moment is I’m spending it stoned out of my head on carabamazapine (coz Trigeminal Neuralgia) and that I have not worked out where to over-winter my scented geraniums (pelargoniums) that grew like stink this summer. Pic is a monoprint I did of Talley Abbey last year, nr Llandeilo, West Wales - where I live. (A dw i dysgu Cymraeg. Hapus i amarfer gyda ti)

All #billionaires are dragons, and I'm not talking about the often benevolent dragons of Asian myth. I'm talking about the cruel and rapacious dragons of European legend.

#billionaires hoard stolen wealth and spread terror and desolation. And it will take more than an intrepid band of adventurers to bring them down.

Alright people, I want to know how many here are libertarians...
Please respond if you are one.

@CharismaticSal_ Yay. When I started the thread, it was to put my thoughts as words and hoped somebody connected might read it but never believed it will reach them to be honest. So thank you for that. I don't know if it will be of any actual help but there are a lot of people with supporting their cause. @KayKap
