@Memeghnad There is a plan that's being executed. It's not something that is organically evolving. At least parts of the constitution is toast.

It's a tricky one to pull off, though. The union, acting at any level lower than the nation as a grouping, is a miracle of an abstraction that won't survive questions about its identity at the lower levels.

Thus the constant deployment of the bonding agents of numerous nationalistic and religious causes.

So in simple words we are spending less than what we used to five years ago. People are cutting down on basic essentials food items like sugar and salt. The government didn't want us to know the numbers. And even if we had known this, nothing much would have happened. Our ability to cope up with disasters has gone up a historic high. We don't care.

What is happening at JNU is an othering of the marginalized. A UC project which wants to keep the poor & marginalized, mostly Dalits, out of education, eternally poor. Not surprising the brahmin-bania BJP is behind it. Such contempt for our kids is astounding

Btw complete solidarity with students everywhere resisting fee hikes and fighting to make education accessible. The students of JNU have been most brave about this.

Education in India has been systematically dismantled, commodified, and privatised. That must be resisted every inch.

Feels like I'm Sisyphus and motivation is the boulder and the mountain is procrastination.
