India is a land of laws and not only common ppl but even politicians celebrate extra judicial killings as heroism.

If all this is “Chanakya Niti”, clearly Chanakya was a corrupt, amoral, asshole.

I'm watching the Sacha Baron Cohen speech and I agree with a lot of what he says up to the point where he suggests checking every single post before it's published 🤔

Amnesty International: "✍️ Every year, we run a campaign called Write for Rights, getting people around the world to show support for people facing human rights threats. With support of people like you, we’ve helped free at least 50 people. That’s 50 lives transformed ✍️

Genuine question! Can people provide a new religion (say , for argument sake) in the census or is it strictly from a predetermined list of religions! How many people are required to recognise a religion in India!

Oh dear God! What is with the obsession of constructing tall structures? And this one eclipsing India Gate?

I'm not sure why I'm saying all this.

I think it's because all the really good stuff in Twitter (@-replies, usable clients) was actually designed and built by users, not Twitter. Twitter, the company, didn't embrace those ideas until very late.

Mastodon and other fediverse remind me of that time, when good ideas could come from anywhere. It's the bottom-up experience that's been missing from the web for years.

Anyone from the legal community has a short primer on legal aid?

@prasanna_s @gautambhatia @sanjayuvacha @AdvManoj

The idea is just to educate lay people like us on how to direct people within our community to access legal aid and get access to justice. Also for what purposes they can have access to legal aid?

This article lists out an acute shortage in para legals and District Legal Service Authorities (DLSAs)and legal service institutions (LSIs). This is perhaps why lots of people from the weaker section do not get any access to justice.

How many of us know that 80% of the population is eligible for legal aid?

So three findings emerge:

1. That the 1949 installation of idols was illegal
2. That the 1992 demolition was illegal.
3. No evidence that Babri masjid was build by *demolishing* a temple.

Who is the wronged and who is the wrongdoer again?

So an hour ago, I posted this, and ventured into Peertube. What followed is one of the most surreal experiences I have ever had in the internet. I now finally understand the concept of Fediverse. And the revelation doesn't just stop here. Since all these accounts follow a similar protocol, I can see my Peertube account in my Mastodon interface, and my Mastodon account in my Peertube interface. This is deeply existential as fuck.

Okay, I'm in an explorer mode now, trying to understand the other services within Fediverse. Today I'm going to upload a video in Peertube and see how it is working vis-a-vis the Fediverse.

Welcome to all the people from India that are joining Mastodon in these days!!

#india #introductions and #followindia can be helpful hashtags to find other people just arrived here like you.

We understand that you are still unconfident with this platform, therefore here you will find some helpful tips to better understand how #Mastodon works:

- There is no such thing as "A" social network called Mastodon! Instead there are thousands of independent social networks called Mastodon Instances.
- Every Instance has his own server, community, rules, admins and moderation.
- Every Instance can interact with users that are on other Instances, exactly like email works (you can send an email from gmail to yahoo, right?).
- Every Instance can choose to silence or completely block another Instance (i.e. because permits bad behaviour)
