Destroying The World to Stop Criminals — Part1

By | 2018-07-09T17:29:25+00:00 July 7th, 2018|culture, india|

Tacitus said this about the ancient superpower Roman Empire. This quote doesn't straight fit into the context of this post, but the core principal idea fits. Indians as a people always support government expansion of power in favor of "stopping criminals".  The obsession goes so deep that the end result is much like what Tacitus talks [...]

What’s New About Rajesh Jain’s NayiDisha

I wrote about his free a billion(FAB) here before. That was a wreck, as mentioned in that post, most people there wouldn't be able to define capitalism at a gunpoint, let alone defend it. It simply turned into an NGO sort of thing people are told to do "for the experience" at the stupid age of [...]

An Indian’s Guide to Empathy

  It seems everything I think and gravitate towards has something to do with my country of birth, India. I have never thought of myself has a "die for your country" patriot, in fact I believe death in all it's forms is so boring and hope that like Kurzweil reports, immortality would be soon be available, [...]

India Needs a New Patriotism

By | 2018-04-04T14:49:22+00:00 March 19th, 2017|culture, india, society|

Patriotism needs to be downsized from its current size. It’s damn too big to be defined and even bigger and harder to put into practice. It expects you to love a country a million sq miles wide while the feeling and emotions of patriotism are probably coming from your local expereience of smoking pot at the [...]

Don’t hate the politicans, HATE THE GOVERNMENT

Om Puri died some days back. To remember him, IndiaTV was replaying his appearance on the Rajat Sharma show AAP KI ADALAT. There the actor did what we all do every fucking day of our lives—abused the politicians. He basically called them the lying little degenerates that they usually are. All good. The people were very [...]

Thoughts on Rajesh Jain’s(RJ) Free A Billion(FAB)

Check their website here. The first thing you notice about FAB’s members or their “core operations” team (I think ) is how liberal they all look. A lot more like congress voters all of them than the right wing BJP’s and defnitely not DJT supporters. LOL! And xavierites all(or most) of them. That college in churchgate [...]

Mumbai BMC Election and Ward K-EAST

Jogeshwari is a poor area in Mumbai. There are huge sqauthes of chawls everywhere. A lot of poor immigrants from all over India choose this tiny town to live in Mumbai for the affordable unlivable housing. The main road connecting the railway station is a literal fucking “sea of people” any day till around 11PM. The [...]
