Can you imagine a World Cup whose schedule and venues are not published even 4 months before it starts? Jay Shah zindabad!
Sanghis are Incompetent even by fascist standards.
I'm still pissed that the final is at Ahmedabad. Should've been Bangalore or Madras. Legit their turn.

Occam's razor.

There's no way babus who cleared UPSC didn't think of this very basic question themselves before issuing this order.

The confusion is by design. To keep everyone occupied in these worries instead of real issues.

Modi govt has weaponized ambiguity in compliance.
It's been nine years of this and a full year remains.

They issue some order that shakes up the equilibrium and puts the populace at work with compliance. That drags on in chaos cos there's too much ambiguity. A dozen or more clarifications. More confusion.

Next election comes.
This is something I read about in a book on late 20th century Latin American politics, which was full of authoritarians who took over in the name of "development" and/or national security.

"Keep your population standing in lines for some reason and rule forever."

Senator is getting full attention of the Sanghi IT cell. Look at his replies and QTs. Such ridiculous attacks on him too. "You have a Pakistani friend and have been to Pakistan ergo you aren't a friend of India".

Great strategy, sanghis, alienate people who want to be friends.
Exactly! What possibly can the BJP gain from flooding the Twitter account of the sitting senator from Maryland who is on the powerful foreign relations committee, just for him expressing a very understandable opinion?

Just reflective ₹2 tweeting.

Malware Malviya has created this ugly mercenary troll machine that just goes hammer and tongs after anyone and everyone saying anything critical of the BJP. Might work on individual who get sick of the hate. It's not gonna work on a US Senator. 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️ His staff will notice, is all.

This! Somehow we have made undergrad education in India even worse and cutthroat and utilitarian and grade chasing and job chasing than ever.

And we have a lot of public thought leaders randomly crapping on college education as a concept, citing Zuck and Jobs and Thiel etc.
Around the world, undergrad college education in this century has evolved towards a more Inclusive broad based learning oriented approach. For example, many top universities have made GRE, GMAT, and recently even SAT optional.

India has gotten even more JEErankish.
Yes! "Brand dilution" it seems.

America has like 100 massive high quality research universities with huge number of engineering and MBA seats. Population 33 crore.

But more than 6 IIT/IIMs in 140 crore India is brand dilution.

It's gatekeeping!

Was any payment to Adani delayed by any public sector bank or LIC? Just imagine if it was #Adani instead of ex-servicemen then how quickly this govt would have acted! "Since the petition was instituted, nearly 400000 pensioners have died awaiting to receive their due.
The payments were supposed to be made in 2019 and we are now in 2023, look at the gall of the officer issuing this communication. He arrogated to himself the power to modify the judgment of this court. This is extremely telling,” said Ahmadi, appearing for an
association of ex-servicemen. This is a new kind of nationalism in Modi's #NewIndia. Modi government is 24X7 available at the service of Adani! #OROP

#Budget2023 #CAPEX growth of 30% Year over Year is just a game of #Smoke & #Mirrors (the hallmark of #Modinomics) .... if you recall, I mentioned that "Devil Lies in the Detail"
Entire Story in 1 Chart. Combines Central Govt & PSU Capex excluding dirty tricks. Image
@nsitharaman budget numbers for CAPEX includes items below
1) 50yr Loans to the States (much of this is consumption by state & double counted)
2) Loans to Food Corp India (Rations & MSP)
3) Capital Infusion is Loss making PSUs to pay Salaries & O/p Losses (BSNL, Air India) Image
These 3 items are NOT Capex .... so when does an Apples to Apples comparison, these adjustments needs to be made...

In short Central Govt & Off-balance sheet or PSU Capex is ONLY 3.8% of GDP (Lower than pre-covid) vs say 4.5% of GDP in FY10 Image

WOW! This is quite a thorough report!

Question for RSS is how long they keep their wagon hitched to him.

They brought him on par with & then ahead of Ambani. But Ambanis afaik don't do outright fraud, just regular cutthroat crony capitalism. This has political downsides.
If the Indian govt doesn't come out strongly as a neutral regulator and arbiter, and instead acts like Adani sympathizers, it sends a massive signal to the global financial community and WILL hit investments. Cos the stuff in this report is well beyond business as usual.
I know I know the official line from Adanis and many on the Sanghi side stanning him is that this is some biased report, hitjob, same old whataboutery, and sure, that will win you cable news or Whatsapp arguments.

But the financial community will take note. Esp rating agencies.

One thing about Modi's #NewIndia is how it keeps falling behind the rest of the world in tech, while fooling itself it's at the cutting edge cos Whatsapp says.

Take RFID based tolls. Was cutting edge 20 yrs ago. Now being replaced in the West.

India just getting into it! 🤦🏽‍♂️🤷🏽
Even tho EZpass etc in the US will be around for a while, they are so George Bush era tech!

In US, Europe, East Asia, cutting edge tech is image processing + online payment. Cheaper and easier than be RFID. And more flexible. And just generally smarter in smartphone era.
In many new systems, cameras just photograph and record license plates. Drivers can have tags OR they can pay toll online within a few hours OR a slightly more expensive toll bill comes in the mail.

Much easier than forcing everyone to buy RFID. And cheaper.

The Tribe that we present today is the Hakkipiki Tribe.

The Hakkipiki are a tribal group in the state of Karnataka.
In Kannada, Hakkipikki means "bird hunters."
They are believed to be related to the renowned Ranapratap Singh.
They are a nomadic tribe of hunter-gatherers who lived in the country's woodlands.
They are divided into four clans: Gujathioa, Kaliwala, Mewara, and Panwara.
They speak a variety of south Indian languages, including kannada, tamil, telegu, and malyalam, as well as vagribooli, which is close to Gujrati.
Hinduism is practised by the Hakkipikki.

CMIE and Ashoka University recently published a report which stated that 1.4 Cr fewer people were employed from Jan 2020 to October 2022.

There is a complete mismatch with the dats published by which has been saying that there is robust growth in hiring
Apparently, this divergence should not occur because of another major factor.

The co-founder of and Ashoka University is same - A businessman named Sanjeev Bikhchandani.
The hiring trend by says that the job index, emerged at 3106 for Nov’22 up from 2455
in Oct’22, recording 27% M-O-M growth and 43% Y-O-Y growth which is remarkable considering that the world is still reeling under Pandemic pressure

Pro-tip: The perfect time to post "BJP will lose Gujarat" or "BJP will lose Gujarat" or basically anything that gets khaki chaddi in a twist, is the start of the evening commute time in India. Commutes in #NewIndia are excruciatingly long, thus spent on Social Media.
Everyone is cranky and exhausted at the end of the work day. You throw in some #QTbait and many WILL take it to tell you how you are wrong, instead of just scrolling past. It stays on their mind through dinner. Then in bed, they will continue that topic. You got a trend going.
Hot takes are best posted at the start of the evening commute of your target segment.

#Here is #How #Modi #reduced #Corruption in #NewIndia
SUMMARY: Introduce a Law that Dissuades reporting of Corruption.

It’s a long #Thread. so please stay with me.

In July 2018, the Govt passed the Prevention of Corruption (Amendment) Bill, 2013.

#AntiCorruption #Corruption #NewIndia work of #Genius

How does this Amendment change things?

(A) Post Amendment, the #Bribe #Giver would also be considered a #criminal or penalizing the bribe giver and bribe taker on equal terms.
#AntiCorruption #Corruption #NewIndia work of #Genius

(B) The Amended Act will facilitate confiscation of the offender’s property

Looking at A & B, who in their right mind will COMPLAIN about being forced to give a bribe?

Heard from former students about how remarkably easy this is. Very quick. Government functioning the way it should.
Twitter reviews are also unanimous! This is a public benefit application form that is so easy to fill out that ALL of it fits in a single screenshot! It's almost as if that was the goal Klain etc gave them.

This is nicely done, @POTUS @WHCOS! A good case study for others.
The Desi in me is feeling most sentimental and jealous that a government benefit that could get you up to $10,000 dollars takes less than 5 minutes to fill out. 😯😯

#NewIndia makes you jump through multiple OTPs and captchas just to book a train ticket.
