Five suicides in IIT Madras and the business is as usual there. I am sick and tired of this society.

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.

To give an example in the last ten years the fees for engineering (even in government colleges) have increased 6 to 10 times.

This is an utter atrocity on 90% of the country, will push them into taking debt, and an attempt to completely kill social mobility.

All education, at all levels must be free and universally accessible for a society to be civilised.

The absurd bashing of IITs in the garb of solidarity to JNU is the stupidest take that's come up today on social media.

Last year, when we said goodbye our 15-year-old cat, I swore I wasn't going to have another pet ... then this young man literally walked in off the street and made himself at home.

He has a bell on his collar but it only rings when he chooses. He can move silently through the house, then his bell will give a little ring when he's ready. You turn around and there he is looking at you.

He has issues. He's seen some shit, but that doesn't matter. He is a Good Boy. His name is Meech.

for the lawyers on here: now that deities are legal entities, can they be named as co-conspirators the next time someone lynches a person in their name? asking for a friend

glad that mastodon came up with an anti caste policy as soon Indians migrated here. never seen such quick response from a social media site ever. it's time to leave toxic sm.

I mean... the articulation of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ that has found renewed enthusiasm among the Hindus is so evidently used as roar of assertion and victory, and as a very loud proclamation of dominance. Where is the ‘spiritual, soft, pliant, accepting’ Hinduism that is claimed?

And then you find out about caste, and then you see increasing militancy and violence and then you see how completely in denial the Hindus are about how their religion is as flawed and problematic as the ones they assert superiority over. And then you see the majoritarian political forces solidify this and inflict unabashed violence and yet the strange idea that Hinduism is a soft, accepting ideology persists!

No seriously, why haven't the mallus come up with a Masto app called Mammuti yet?
