10 lesser-known facts about Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru:
🔸 Before immersing himself into India's freedom struggle, Nehru was training to be an advocate like his father, Motilal Nehru, and had even enrolled at the Allahabad High Court after graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1910.
Hey #India friends, how many ppl are aware of #sanghi influence in #Canada? Seems to be a lot of hostility particularly towards Jagmeet Singh, leader of our social democratic party (NDP). I've read ppl in Modi govt are not happy with #Sikh representation in Canada, especially as more bodies recognize 1984 as a state-sponsored #genocide
Hey @Ruminess. This quietness here also gives us the space to think. To reflect. To sit back and spend time interacting. On Twitter that hardly happened. So let's not mistake the quietness.

Mastodon looking for moderators speaking Tamil, Bengali: Founder explains future plans in a Skype interview
#SanjivBhatt appeared in court today and his bail plea was adjourned again. Sudha baradwaj, gautam navlakha etc are languishing in jail. A police state would look liberal in comparison. Something's gotta give...

One more institutional murder at IIT Madras. Fathima Lathif, an undergraduate student in humanities and social science department committed suicide facing religious and caste discrimination from IIT faculty Sudarshan Padmanabhan, as per her suicide note.

The thing about open-source/free software is that nobody is accountable. And if nobody can be held accountable, the quality goes down. Similarly on #fediverse, unless the creators and administrators are getting compensated for their time and effort, you can't really ask too much of them. You certainly are in no position to make any demands. All you can do is place a request and hope that it gets implemented. This is one of the reasons why I think decentralised social networking won't take off.
