"Scattering pearls in a forest of reeds"-in bengali "Ulubane mukto charano".
Time is gone when international approval was the benchmark for action. India will dictate its own terms to the world. That's New India.
DO PRESENT LEADERSHIP OF INDIA NEED SUCH TYPE OF STATEMENT FROM OUR FRIEND BRAZIL?
" We just expect India to look at the situation with new eyes. Because the population faces a despotic regime of the worst kind that has deliberately wrecked the country’s economy and institutions."
FROM Brazil Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo
I used to watch his videos and used to think such a great personality sad to see him not able to open his eyes beyond the lies fed by bjp
This demolition is a CRIME and that the person who ordered it has been TRANSFERRED which is the usual punishment for displeasing politicians / ministers in government. Is the Karnataka govt. sending a signal to its officials to go ahead with such crimes. They may be transferred (and brought back soon later). If this has started in our so called civilised state, then what could happen in the benighted heartland?
A very dishonest article, meant to obfuscate not enlighten. One might be forgiven for thinking that muslim identity politics started just a couple of years ago. Muslim politics in the sub continent has always been identity politics. From the khilafat through partition to now. Muslims have always organized themselves only around religion & religious identity. Whether its Kashmir or Malabar. Hyderabad or Aligargh or Assam. Like a cat which always lands on its four legs, Muslim politics will always, always land on identity.
Appreciable work, Soumik. Looking forward to the BBC series. The collaboration with Aruna Sairam was fabulous!
Correction " people who are not Indians"
The author refers the Iranian leadership as "mullas", which is a common term used to disrespect an Islamic scholar in todays age. He also claims that the leadership have little or no expertise, referring to the Iranian leadership he writes—"they have little or no expertise in many other matters: scientific, political, economic, educational, military, etc.". He says this audaciously for a nation who has ranked 2nd in stem cell, 4th in nanotechnology, 17th in science production, reverse engineered RQ-170 in mid air and bought it down, detected and shot down the RQ-4A, swept out ISIS and US sponsored terrorists and made the Iranian people prouder and safer than ever before.
No nation is perfect and Iran is no exception. In March 1979, 99.3% of Iranians voted for an Islamic republic in a referendum, even today the people are overwhelmingly in support of the Islamic republic which cannot be seen through the lense of the corrupt western media outlets which have become an important source of our information.
I would like to encourage the author to continue his research on Iran and I whish him luck.

"In Bijnor district, every police station reportedly enrolled 100 civilian volunteers in October 2018.".....I guess you meant 2019! and not 2018.
Not even a smidgeon of an attempt to be fair in the so-called "newsletter"? Is there no support for the CAA across the country? Or do you, by presumed consensus with your readers, describe only the side of the news they want to read about? Or have you chosen not to care that you're seen only as a mouthpiece and not a news body?
Desperate attempt to save Bangladeshis vote bank
There is a good reason to believe that social media is one of the most powerful tools in modern times to build up the well being of the planet.Yet,it’s effect on the young minds is one of undesirable outcome in many cases.The difference in the percentage of unhappy members observed between boys and girls,probably relates to greater emotional sensitivity of girls relative to boys.It is a fact that the young brains are quite often overloaded with information on changing fashions, life styles, events of unrest such as mass shootings, homicides,riots,horror and terror,calamities,etc, happening across the globe quite repetitively and the way the mind of a girl responds and reacts to these episodes,naturally must be different from that of boys,at times, driving the individual into a pessimistic mode, which,if protracted and fuelled by aloofness over a time, may turn into depression.One solution is to keep them away from social media but that may not be that easy as people have developed Nomophobia.The other alternative perhaps, is to constantly watch the wards,their emotional changes and imbalances and come to their rescue by a periodic counselling by parents and if needed by psychologists too.
And not everyone dies of old age in Kashmir. Tens of thousands of Kashmiri Muslims have died of the bullets, pellets fired by Indian army, many die from the grief arising from their sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, parents being snatched away forever by Indian army. But no filmmaker will make a film on them, no paper will tell their stories just because the victims are Muslims.
Startup cannot hire poor quality candidates with poor education
What happens to the person we loved when the body it was encased in dies is totally unknown. When we sit or engage with those we love, we never raise the question who this person is, can we catch him or her in the hands we are holding, the cheeks we are kissing? Is the person the same as the body or separate? We never raise the question but just assume that the mind and the body will forever remain united, are inseparable. When we have to let the body go, it may be hard to concede that the spirit that shone through that body has also been destroyed to nothingness. There is no compelling reason to believe that either. Knowing that our senses and intellectual tools do not define the the limits of existence, it is logical to remain a disbeliever in the nihilistic perception of death. It is quite scientific to affirm: I don't know. If something cannot become nothing but just changes configuration of the basic building blocks, then neither the body nor the spirit that we loved can be totally reduced to nothingness. If scientists or philosophers can be agnostics in the spiritual domain they can allow agnostics in matters relating to life after death. No one has to say: I know. In fact, the "I don't know" is the only honest answer, in keeping with Socrates's confession: The only thing I know is how little I know. This also falls in line with Kant's comment that the Thing-in-itself is unknown & unknowable. We just know it is there.
With rising unemployment in India many moving to danger area
they will hunt each and every one of you
Same kind of things happening in India as well. Modi and Hindutva right wing wants emulate Pakistan. They are trying to drag India backwards. So who's the real traitor here - Someone or something that's trying to drag our country backwards. People refuse to see the elephant in the room.
If we look at the way science and technology have been evolving, and make some logical extrapolations,these indeed would see the light of the day,probably in a much shorter span than we can think of.Undoubtedly, the cost effective ness, the redesigning of the roads to suit and sync with the algorithms that go into the making of the autonomous cars,(without which it would be a catastrophic substitution) and the needed ecosystems such as an enlightened awareness from co-commuters , pedestrians and the general public, are concerns to be addressed to.But the greatest feature of humans is, adaptability, and as such, they get adapted to the technology.More than autonomous cars, the flying cars may be reality much earlier, in view of: ever increasing need for momentum in mobility,an increasing population and hence road congestions. But as is pointed out, the greater thrust may demand fossil fuel technology unless some thing like hydrogen fuel cell technology( assuming that hydrogen is created with renewable energy but not by conventional electricity which again brings in climate issues) gears up to rescue.Then the main concerns would be monitoring air traffic, designing collision -free corridors , the concerns of debris.But as is the case with satellite orbital slots, there would be intra and interstate understandings to come in to play to stage the scene.All said and done, the concepts of fully autonomous and flying cars are sci-fi concepts at least for now

The story is total non sense. When Minorities in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan were persecuted, Kashmiri Pandits were thrown out, why Malysia did not speak.when China kept 10 million Muslims in camps, why They did not speak out. Where is this author. The authors comments are anti national.
I fully agree with the conclusion that executions have never eradicated any crime for actions result from environmental impact upon instincts and drives. It is as shameful to demand and celebrate executions as it is to indulge in the crime. We have reached a level of savagery, both as those who rape and those who demand or dance and drink to the executions/public hangings etc., that we have cause to despair if we have anything to contribute to civilization anymore. Instead of introspecting as to what we have done wrong as a society and trying to fix it so that we can find a path to a safe and friendly community, we are are just gorging ourselves on the pleasures of outrage. The words reasonableness, sensitivity, reform, honor, dignity, compassion, mercy mean nothing to us. No amount of grief and anger justifies this kind of an eye for an eye wildness and pitilessness. In the process we are proving ourselves to be no different than other animals, thus showing rape not as inhuman behavior but just as a sample conduct of animals in whose vocabulary rape does not exist.
Beautifully written. I feel like I just finished that trip myself, live, in person. Without a ticket, or waiting in a queue. The picture is very artistic as well.
So, the protestors are ´focused´ on preventing India from becoming more like its Islamic neighbour?
The ´in-limbo´ status of people had to be resolved at some point in time, and what other way than documentation test?
If the anti-CAA protestors truly wished to do something about the ´statelessness´ possibility of undocumented people, they would spread knowledge about how to get valid documentation!
After all, how difficult could getting a valid document be?! That too, over a period of decades?!
Rather than protesting on the streets that is always certain to lead to loss of lives - is that wise?
We need to spend more time understanding the risks of environment and focus on sustainable development.
This government must stop and let the people speak out if they want to. There is no national security reason for them not being allowed to use the internet! Release all political prisoners!
Probably Nehru and Pakistan must be held responsible for this
