Pinned toot

Does a democracy have to repeat the mistakes/atrocities of Medieval rulers? If yes then will it not be one tyranny replaced by another?
To top that it seems to have sanction of the highest court of the land.
Are we evolving as human(e) beings or regressing into the tribal divisions bygone days?

@VivekT Cricket is a weird thing for india. None of the world cares for it! Really!
But I bet it could be WWIII and the india times would put cricket ahead on the front page!
You know it's true - I'm not kidding :-)

This space is lacking in narcissism. So here I am wearing some hand made jewellery by a master craftsman who was perishing and was revived under a community scheme that we set up for him and some of his ilk. Cant help mentioning that he is a muslim...

@Bloodyatheist If a Hindu is successful, he is self-made and all that. If a Muslim is successful, it's because the society let him. That's the agenda they're pushing. Fucking sycophants.

42. The answer finally has a question


How much practice
does it take
to look away?
How many millions
of girls aborted,
How many wives
'mysteriously' dying
in the blaze
of kerosene?
How many rapes
does it take,
how much torture
in the national interest?
How many pogroms?
How many young men
reduced to ash?

5. Focus on education, health care and infrastructure.
6. Bring in a more efficient system of feedback atleast at constituency levels.
7. I suppose the first to post system of elections should be looked into for alternatives like preferential system Australia uses.
( For info - ) This system for instance disincentivises hatred to quite an extent.

Do you know how little farmers in India have?


In Assam, 85 villages donated 350 quintals of rice to AASU so that they can go fight CAA in Supreme Court.

If they had gold, they would have donated gold.

They have rice, so they donated rice.

Doesn't it give you goosebumps?

In a country where there are thousands of unsung heros of independence movement, erecting monuments for that coward British stooge, is an affront.

I remembered this song suddenly today, an old song from yore.

I love the song for the positivity in the song, the expectation and the enthusiasm. Very infectious. And it's KK 💕

I am not une vraie lumière as we say - I am not shining too bright myself.
I would like to offer that we need other people who are good at welding, art, medicine, plumbing, chem, electricity, poetry, phys, maths and much else... Known stuff. We NEED IT!! NEED IT to go forward
Are those what our current regimes in india, canada, uk, france, kenya, germany... strive for? No!
Why?! Why don't we all do the sensible things?!
Because capitalism and human greed. That's why! Capitalism must die
