Who is a Brahman, Kshatriya, Vaishya, or Shudra? Are they levels within a society? Or components that define existence? What does Manusmriti and Gita say?
We are being defined and cast in a way and every word, every narrative we consume reinforces that. It is not merely an analytical observation anymore, it is tool of power. Caste System. A series.

This was the last cry of Avijit Sarkar. A BJP worker who was slaughtered by a lynching mob of the victorious TMC supporters of Mamata Banerjee who had promised exactly that! Mayhem!
Greatness is a burden. Morality a crippling handicap. Geopolitics is played in the margins. Those who understand that can do something useful for the masses. Others run the society into the ground.
The aim was to 'consolidate' the vote of one religious group to defeat the party which they said is aligned with another religion. It was not a plank for development but a religious hegemony.
Can trauma triggered by environmental factors and events go across generations and DNA? Can these be tweaked and improved via meditation? Can these lead to Civilizational Deserts? We investigate.
There is a rampant necrophilia going through the world media. Even with half the US deaths at peak, India is being hunted for devastation, while US was spared. We ask questions today!
Modi's brutal lockdown - ran headline last year when Disaster Management Act was enforced. Delhi & Maharashtra created the migrant crisis. Today, the arguments have changed. He didn't push enough!
Health is a State subject. Not even a Concurrent one! Center can't do much. States are belligerent even at the cost of peoples' lives. They have done precious little. Yet world abuses Center. Why?

Genocides are preceded by dehumanization of a particular group. Imaginary, innuendo-laden, characteristics are attributed to that group using hate-speech. Sarkar and his Colonials are doing just that

Entertainment strings in the hands of the ideological and criminals can be a devastating weapon against a society. Recent events show that things are tightening. Is there a systemic malaise?
Pakistan pushes for talks with India. Modi refuses. Pakistan goes into FATF Grey list but not Black. A Nuke Bazaar was ousted, Bin Laden caught and Jihad unleashed - no consequences! Why?
Democracy hinges on our voice and our representation. When those who do not have the mandate start to decide for us, we need push back. For, without representation, there is no Democracy!
Why did Hitler "appropriate" a Hindu/Buddhist spiritual symbol in his anti-Semitic inquisition? Why are White Christian Supremacists so drawn to Nazis? Current narratives don't make sense. Lets look.
Media is alarmed - Muslim vote is threatened. A vote based on religious identity - a communal vote - is threatened. Those who are scared of communal politics getting hurt fancy Secularism.

Colonial rule maybe just a word for this generation. The White Man's Burden narrative of great contribution to India notwithstanding, the facts point to a Genocide. Let us discuss threadbare!
Loneliness is a global epidemic. The Pandemic has worsened it. Japan is creating a ministry to tackle it. But is that the correct way forward?
Creating custom miseries to address is an industry. An enterprise. The powers-that-be use career moral busybodies to unleash the Weapons of Bespoke Misery.

Canadian politicians and PM were backers of those who attacked India on the Farm Bills. Just in the last decade, both Canada and Australia repealed their agri monopolies. Take a look.
Data can be used to bring any nation or society to its knees or even obliterate an entire group. It is a "Natural Resource". Yet we have a "free-for-all" where anyone can collect and steal it. Why?
Gray Zone is a profitable place to act for the unscrupulous, cunning and seditious elements. Succumbing to them is highly likely unless one can collect the dots and connect them. Its about the dots!
A sane mind's battle has to be for the Truth. Anything short is entertainment or delusion. It requires ruthless intensity and a sharp discretionary sense. Both, to this world and to Inner self.
Predatory Big Techs thrive on control of our lives by controlling our information. It is time to revolutionize the tech world. Lead a distributed world of finance, networks, currencies and content!
It is not Twitter vs Modi. It is you versus dictatorial imperialism. The government of India represents your voice. Is bound by your vote. Twitter is not. How can it dictate your rights to you?!

You cannot have others put a target on your forehead as they prepare to shoot you and then complain about the atrocities! If the storm is coming, then raise the stakes, damn it!
India's history has been defined by narratives led by the religious bigots and liberals with one central motive. To rid our civilization of itself. History keeps repeating in nauseating circles!
India and its economy is being fundamentally altered right in front of our eyes by a mind which has set fear aside and refuses that emotion to guide his ways.
Lies spread in a society, even if fact-checked and corrected, have a life of their own. They can set emotions and consequences into motion that no one could have predicted.
When Journalists turn into masterminds, Journalism becomes a Weapon of Mass Destruction. For, it is nothing else but information bandied around through human ideological intervention.
To know who we are, we need to know what started it all. Let us close our eyes and contemplate. Nothing short of that will work.

Somewhere Aussie Cricket team's talent gives way to its cheating and deceitful ways, as a dominating results helps that bully brush the nastiness of character under the carpet. A defeat exposes them
From the Communists to the Colonial Masters, everyone found poverty to be a great tool to gain power over masses. Feign altruism and throw some crumbs and people will sell their mother!
Much of the problems on Kashmir and CAA that Modi government has faced is because of powerful lobbying by Pakistan and their PR firms. We need to factor in the end game - NOW!
The Incubator Babies that never were became the key for US to attack Saddam in 1992. Today, a sitting US Head of State is persona-non-grata within hours. Web of power and lies can do anything!
What is Punjab? A bastardized poor man's version of the land that was known as Sapta Sindhva. The Indian Punjab is not even that. Khalistanis are fighting for their own psychopathic dreams.
Judicial Activism does not mean encroachment upon the lawful powers of the executive and legislature. Judiciary cannot be an Empire within an Empire. Still, in these times, we need creative solutions.

Supply chain challenges can fail any great product. Let us check what stares at us in terms of vaccine distribution challenges. Also a reality check on penetration of Khalistani sympathy in Punjab.
Right-wing Christian anti-gay hate spewing pastors and politicians regularly rape boys or have illicit sex. Liberal LGBTQ activists back gay-hating Islamists. Strange world indeed!
