“What is the cost of lies? It’s not that we’ll mistake them for the truth. The real danger is that we’ll hear enough lies, then we no longer recognize the truth at all.” : Legasov in HBO's "Chernobyl"

"আত্মোপকারীকে বনবাসে বিসর্জন করা যাহাদিগের প্রকৃতি, তাহারা চিরকাল আত্মোপকারীকে বনবাস দিবে–কিন্তু যত বার বনবাসিত করুক না কেন, পরের কাষ্ঠাহরণ করা যাহার স্বভাব, সে পুনর্বার পরের কাষ্ঠাহরণে যাইবে। তুমি অধম–তাই বলিয়া আমি উত্তম না হইব কেন?"

This quote sums up everything that is wrong with this country. Why men don't see marital rape as a criminal offence, why we rank high in the list of countries most unsafe for women and why patriarchal men — husbands, partners, fathers, brothers — claim women as their property. twitter.com/ANI/status/1310482

Given the state of things there's a need for 'Bipin Babu-r Karon Sudha'.

Expecting 'useful idiot' Mr Gupta to eat his hat and confess to an inability to speak the truth is ridiculous. His specialization is obscure tap dancing with words - because in those gaps lie areas to arbitrage patronage.He provides the necessary 'intellectual' cover. twitter.com/65thakursahab/stat

In fact a clever strategy is to eulogise individuals like A. P. J. Abdul Kalam but condemn Muslims as a whole community.

You can eat your cake & have it too. Brahmins of antiquity perfected this strategy against Dalits. twitter.com/sonaliranade/statu

This atrocious idea that attempting to establish rights is not required because of some glorious sense of equality bestowed by a business owner is both condescending and a distorted reading of history. But then I wasn't expecting any different from another industry titan.

Archives | Like most Bengalis, I knew that there was a famine in 1943. That it was the criminal neglect of the British Raj that let millions of people die was an open secret. But, in a way, it seemed like ancient history.

Major trains and roads are impacted by the agitation and here we are playing "chase the car ahead". It isn't funny and yet it is - the arbitration of what we get drip fed as important news.

Amazed to see how some in media saw the ray of hope when we had 500 daily cases, then at 50,000 and even now at ~1 lakh. Its shameful to see how basic science, maths and logic is being sacrificed either our of utter ignorance or to put out a spin for the masters.
