So the rollback of fee-hike in JNU is only partial that is the basic room rent. The bulk of the hike is still there; i.e. the 10 percent annual arbitrary rise, the high utility charges which were nil earlier are still there. So are the moral codes on dressing and the curfews imposed. The rollback shown by media houses is a mere eyewash, so that students stop protesting, and the outside people supporting us lose their interest in the issue. Protests will continue

Good people of Mastodon, I've been seeing a number of posts here that compare the Ayodhya judgment to a husband losing his wife to another man, treatment of rape victims etc. This is quite worrisome.

Women aren't property that one can win/lose claim over. Such comparisons reinforce the idea of ownership over women as passive objects. I have high hopes from this space and how we talk about women here.

So please do continue with the much-needed criticism, but please keep women out of it.

I am pleasantly surprised to hear that the Supreme Court is upholding the Speaker's decision to disqualify Karnataka's defected MLAs.
Now it is for the voters to restore the majesty of democracy by ensuring the defeat of each one of them if they dare to contest again!
