What is your BIG fear?

@vidyut Ashish Shelar claiming that he solved that Maha mess... Once it's sorted out.

@vidyut you roll your eyes now but beware the posters claiming credit for it coming soon to a pole near you!

@vidyut Fear - By the time this government rule gets over we would be so economically and socially broken that the hate still keeps getting spread uncontrollably.

Don't know why but something tells me this fear won't come true. I mean things will be bad. But not this bad. Many cognitive biases at work ensure that our brain constantly thinks "this thing is getting worse" - especially brains of aware and well read folks. Let us hope for the best :)


When prophecy fails people will start b believing it even more.

Read these words today and it made a lot of sense. It is something what I have read and seen in every cult.

Now amplify that cult to an entire nation and it brings a very scary scenario especially with the destruction of government structures which can prevent this.


Itna optimism kahan se laate ho Ninad ??
Wish it was so easy...
I really do wish.

@Vishsai @vidyut

Well ma'am, I just hope my optimism isn't proven to have been unfounded at the end of it all. Sometimes I fear it will since I am young and many much more knowledgeable and senior folks are devasted and pessimistic about the future.

As to where it comes from, I guess different (not better or worse) understanding of our economy, society, institutions, politics and history. What else can I say?

@Vishsai @vidyut

@ninad @Vishsai @vidyut

We all do hope for the best Ninad.
But the signs and symptoms visible don't give a very good prognosis.

@KnottedBow @ninad @Vishsai @vidyut

Situation is real grim now, with one party able to sway the democratic process at will, screw up the economy and grow richer in the progress.

Being optimistic is nice, but not enough. Concrete steps to throw out these bastards is required!

I am into my last few years of life, having lived a quiet life so far. But the younger ones are just beginning theirs! YOU all have a lot more to lose!!

@NSure @ninad @Vishsai @vidyut

Yes... Younger ppl have that optimism and idealism...
Which is quite required.
The older people have experience of life and hard facts to deal with.
Both are correct in their own ways and both are needed.

Most recent I saw on Twitter was an IAS aspirant schooling recently quit IAS Kannan ( I think his name is)...

I was like, hello, u r only an aspirant, seeing things from outside. He has been inside the system and knows its plus and minus, how it works etc.

@NSure @KnottedBow @ninad @Vishsai @vidyut It takes time for people to realize that this one party is no different to others. This party has compromised on corruption, National security and mocked the Constitution and killed democracy. Younger ones will curse their ancestors for believing this party so blindly.

@Haider @KnottedBow @ninad @Vishsai @vidyut

I never wanted the mass murderer duo back in 2014 itself. Everything that has happened after that has only cemented my hatred for the party.

I hope we get rid of them, so that our children & grandchildren are safe, so that our nation can continue to rise globally, instead of sinking to the level of a rogue nation!!

@vidyut India becoming full scale nazi country and they start doing genocide officially within next few years.

@vidyut That the current people in power will last for ever.

It has already happened in May 2019 ( and before that in May 2014)

What is yours ?

My BIG fear is India will not remain the same awesome country I had known while growing up there.

@vidyut that empathy, fact and reason will continue to be in short supply.

read your website and this account. The world could use more people like you. Stay strong.

@vidyut to see someone falling without being able to catch their hand.

During day: What is fear 🤨

At Night: Shadow of shaking leaves
Leaves: *move*
The wind: This is the wind.
Me: Oh, okay then.
