User discretion is required

Here is a thought-provoking article in Indian Express that advises Internet users to use their own discretion instead of simply following the algorithmic contents additions that are thrown at them. Undoubtedly the world is experiencing the greatest phase of democracy (up till now) through the advent of the Internet. To get educated, to inform yourself, […]

Is journalism worth a soldier’s life?

In a tragic turn of events a soldier committed suicide when he became a target of a “string operation” carried out by a The Quint journalist. Army jawan/sahayak Lance-Naik Roy Mathew was secretly videotaped by a The Quint journalist named Poonam Agarwal, talking about the menial jobs the “sahayaks” have to perform for the officers […]

Does it really take 400 L of water to make 1 L of cold drink?

It is surprising to know that 1 million traders in Tamil Nadu, according to this Time update, are taking cold drink bottles from Coca-Cola and Pepsi off their shelves because these multinationals are using up the state’s scarce water resources. The traders are replacing these bottles of cold drinks with local, fruit-based brands. It’s quite […]

No Mr. Amartya Sen, the space for public reasoning hasn’t shrunk in India

Here is another link from Live Mint about an interview with the Nobel prize-winning economist Amartya Sen. In the interview he talks about his latest book, Collective Choice and Social Welfare, in which he argues that a democracy isn’t just about casting votes.  It’s also about people arguing with each other. There is nothing wrong […]

This could be the reason why Gurmehar Kaur is being raked up

Kerala has been the den of murderous communists for many years now. Our mainstream media does not cover the atrocities being committed in the communist-ruled state for obvious reasons: the left dominated media would not like to talk about the dark deeds of their masters. BJP and RSS cadres have been mercilessly butchered in Kerala. […]

Gurmehar Kaur & Blatant hypocrisy of the left-lib intelligentsia

Note: This post was originally published on Huffington Post but their love for “freedom of expression” compelled them to remove it so I’m republishing it on my own blog. We all have our own political and ideological views and it’s all fine. This is what makes our world diverse, wonderful and chaotic. Our different opinions […]

Sadhguru’s logical explanation of yoga

Here is a video in which Sadhguru very lucidly explains to a very hostile interviewer about the qualities of yoga and how, you don’t need to belong to Hinduism or any other religion in order to benefit from it. Look @ This Idiot Anchor Who Never Practiced Yoga Never Experienced it Taking Interview with a […]

What is the Enemy Property Act 1968?

Although the name “Enemy Property Act” sounds a bit ominous, it means all the properties left behind by people who migrated to Pakistan and China forfeit their rights to the properties and these properties should not belong to the government of India. As this Swarajya link explains, the Enemy Property Act, 1968, was enacted by […]
