The only man I believe in current politics is @narendramodi & am of opinion that @BJPLive is a Democratic Party. Any democratic organisation isn’t immune to corruption. Its not one man party. More than whatever that happened in #Goa doesn’t have a single good reason.
And even if there is a reason(RS certainly isn’t a cause as @TendulkarBJP is there till 2023), I fail to understand because I justify “Rama” when Fiberals taunt him for sending “Sita” to Vana. The righteousness is certainly required.
I trust NaMo but NaMo isn’t BJP. And that’s the reason I like BJP & NaMo. If I go back a bit in time, even “Bhindranwale” was created as a ploy by Indira G (Congress definitely has never been democratic). Many supported that & remember her popularity?

Exactly 6 months back from today, I moved to Goa from Mumbai. It wasn't a well-thought decision. I was here for a VC summit in December, a minister asked me why would I not move to #Goa when I was telling everyone about my chronic bronchitis & my team's reduced productivity...(1)
thanks to long hours stuck traffic, bad air and an overall bad lifestyle that comes at an exorbitant cost in the metro. At that point 13 out of our 20 people team was in therapy.
I didn't have an answer to "why not" of the minister. Next thing, we moved to Goa.
We work on the internet, so we really didn't 'need' to be in Mumbai. Whenever we have to, we take an overnight train or bus.

- Since then, my lungs are doing absofuckinglutely great.
- My 14-15 hour work day has been slashed to 6 hours. Evenings are for me, friends or books.

Hello mumbai dilli wallas. This is a short appeal for those of you who love Goa and are planning to come here this season. Or ever. 1. Refuse plastic bottles of water. Carry water bottles. Everyone is happy to refill with filtered water. It’s safe. Tastier.
2. Don’t eat Lays chips. Don’t eat any thing from packets. There’s a garbage crisis. Don’t add to it. Carry your empty beer cans bottles if you’re drinking outdoors.
3. Don’t drive fast. People live in both Sides of the road. It’s their home. 40 is fast. Amble. Get Goa speed. It’s super fun.

Today marked five years since #NarendraDabholkar was assassinated while on his morning walk in Pune (thread)

That act robbed Maharashtra and the rest of the country of one of the finest rationalist minds and dogged anti-superstition activists.

#NarendraDabholkar was 67 yrs old
For 18 long years, #NarendraDabholkar and his compatriots had campaigned for an anti-superstition anti-black magic law.
They were convinced that poorest/weakest people were being exploited under the rubric of religious practices though these had little or no religious sanction
On Aug 26, 2013, less than a week after #NarendraDabholkar was shot dead, the Maharashtra govt promulgated an ordinance. And formalised the law in December that year.

Since then, the law has seen amendments which diluted it, the list of banned activities has been reducing.
