I'm slowly starting to process the fact that not everyone reads the news.

Instagram and TikTok is proving again and again that people prefer to not look at the ugliness in the world and just keep away from it all.

Maybe it's escapism, maybe it's self-preservation. I'm also changing my opinion about how, "Everyone needs to be updated about the latest news stuff."

They really don't. Fuck it. Live in your little bubbles & be happy.

"The Pathalgadi movement itself was sparked by concerns over a dilution of the legacy of the original Birsa Munda. Eight years after he died, the rebellion he led forced the colonial government to pass the Chotanagpur Tenancy Act in 1908 to protect tribal land rights. It was the BJP government’s decision in 2016 to dilute provisions of this Act that laid the ground for Pathalgadi"

My head aches with reading more and more of how exactly bjp has destroyed India.

Few are impressed with Twitter's so-called political ad ban

The much-touted policy change gives license to for-profit companies spreading misinformation

Country Being Defamed And Image Of The Prime Minister Being Tarnished'; PIL In Bombay HC Seeks Ban On Tiktok livelaw.in/news-updates/countr

This has to be the most hilarious thing ever. Modi ko bahut gaali pad rahi hai. Social Media platform band karo.

I guess Mastodon will have arrived when there is a PIL. And then.... good luck banning.... :p

Someone on FB was stating something factually wrong about the Sabarimala verdict. I corrected him by quoting the judgement and also gave the link to full judgement.

His response: "What is the point in reading it?"

All my efforts went down the drain!!

P.S. No prizes for guessing his political affiliation!

Intense outrage in Lok Sabha happened about the detainment of Farooq Abdullah in Kashmir.

HM Shah had told Parliament he wasn't detained. Turns out he is. So members were demanding answers on why he lied to the house.

Speaker said he wasn't informed about it so it technically wasn't a lie.

Like... wow.

Caught on TV: Ex-Army officer wants ‘death for death, rape for rape’ in favour of Kashmiri Pandits buff.ly/2rM7bDs

Incredibly detailed investigation on electoral bonds. Legalized money laundering, out into motion by the BJP. No wonder they have got 95% of the funds. t.co/CTy3bHwkR8

Pneumatic tires seem like an anachronism—and in many ways, they are.

An ex army officer went to Media and said Rape is revenge for rape , he wants Kashmiri women to be raped. And this is just evening news in India . Am so disgusted by how men in powerful situations treat women like objects and I hope some country recognises how India treats its women
