Many liberals are amazed that people believe the obvious lies that the Modi government puts out about China. There's a clear inconsistency between Modi saying that China didn't take any territory and army commanders regularly meeting their Chinese counterparts to negotiate.

They're practically begging the Chinese to leave, and the Chinese are refusing. If that were not the case, there would be no need to talk.

Also, the #Indian #Military position MUST BE WEAK, otherwise we would have kicked out the #Chinese. We simply cannot.

So why isn't the Indian public angry with #Modi?

For the same reason they were not angry with #Nehru in 1962.


Indians have a tendency to place their heroes on a pedestal and worship them. As long as they are on that pedestal, they can do no wrong.

There's no news of #Modi's visit to the #US when you turn on #CNN on TV in India.

So I looked up #NBC online.

I had to scroll past 11 screens to find any news of Modi's visit.

#XiJinping, on the other hand, was on the first screen.

These are the first six screens.

What will it take for America to wake up and see that, indeed, Prime Minister #Modi is wearing no clothes whatsoever and that our nation must stop providing him — and his zealots — platforms from which to claim otherwise? #ModiNotWelcome…
In 2022, raising concerns about the rapidly deteriorating human rights situation in India, Representative @IlhanMN asked: “What will it take for us to outwardly criticize the actions that the Modi administration is taking?”
Certainly, no one could imagine Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, China’s Xi Jinping, or Russia’s Vladimir Putin being so feted and honored by the US government.

L'affaire #Dorsey

There's been a minor kerfuffle in India for the last two days since the Twitter ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey, @jack, made some statements about freedom of speech in India under #Modi.

A 🧵

#Liberals are gleefully sharing these comments as evidence of #India not being a democratic country, and defenders of the government are going into attack dog mode, as usual.

But many people on both sides are missing some key things here:

1. Dorsey didn't talk only about India. In fact, he also talked about how the #USA government tried to suppress things. As also #Turkey, #Nigeria.

2. This points to a deeper issue underlying the whole controversy: Is #FreedomOfSpeech absolute?

@AshwiniVaishnaw Man of the moment Shri Ashwini Vishnav Ji, Minister -Railways..
Today evening it wd be 72 hours since the horrific tragedy happened at Balasore 3T train accident. On national TV one could make out the burden, grief and anguish on your face. ImageImage
Sir irrespective of demand for your resignation by some opportunist people you kept your head down and Tirelessly worked with the rescue team along side.
fatigue was apparent. 1 could only imagine what wd be going on in your mind. Watching the mangled trains,dead bodies 👇
and the injured people, and outwardly keeping your calm.
We could see you on national TV working, crawling out from underneath a bogy , Tirelessly supporting the rescue team through out the night.

The grit, the commitment and the dedication personified. ImageImage

This is from the list of "rationalized content" - i.e., stuff that will be dropped - from the syllabus of class X, from the website of the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in India.…

(1/) Image
The rationale for the "rationalisation" of content is that the same subjects are covered in a higher class.

So evolution is covered in XII standard biology, and the periodic table in XII standard chemistry. So why teach it in Xth?

(2/) Image
The problem with this logic is that, in India, students opt for different "streams" after the Xth standard (class X) board exam.

Some opt for science, some for commerce, some for arts.

Non-science stream students will NEVER encounter evolution or the periodic table again.

#uthiramerur #Modi #NewParliamentBuilding #MahaPeriyava
While performing Bhumi Puja of the New Parliament building, our PM mentioned about a place known as Uthiramerur. There's some very good information about the Democratic Processes in ancient Bharateeya cities and villages! Image
Uthiramerur (TamilNadu) is a model of Democracy! Uthiramerur is situated in Kancheepuram District, about 90 kms from Chennai. It has a 1,250-year old history! There are three important Temples. The three Temples have a large number of inscriptions, notably those from the reigns Image
of Raja Raja Chola (985-1014 CE.) his son Rajendra Chola, and the Vijayanagar Emperor Krishnadeva Raya! During the period of Parantaka Chola [907-955 CE.] the village administration was honed into a perfect system, through elections by the people! In fact, inscriptions on Image

#Erdogan has won the elections in #Turkey.

#Indian #liberals are dismayed because Erdogan is trying to #Islamize Turkey.

But this is a decision of the people of Turkey.

Erdogan has won through a democratic, free and fair election.

This is what the people of Turkey want.

If you claim to love #Democracy, that is, the will of the people, then you should be happy with this result.

Erdogan is a #Democrat. He is not #Liberal. He converted the #HagiaSophia into a mosque.

But #Democracy has NOTHING TO DO with #Liberalism, and vice versa.

#Ataturk was a #Liberal in every sense of the word. He abolished the #Caliphate, closed down #Madarsa s, changed the language of the country from #Arabic to #Turkish, banned the #Fez cap, banned the #Sufi and #Dervish orders, and promoted scientific thinking.

A friend sent me a video that is apparently making the rounds. It's titled "#Modi the Boss," and features various world leaders praising Modi's popularity and greeting him.

Modi's #Bhakts are clearly in orgasmic bliss with this, and opponents say it's pure propaganda.

But there's more to this than meets the eye.

1. It's a fact that Modi's popularity fills world leaders with awe. They would give an arm and a leg to be as popular in their countries as Modi is in India. He can screw up worse than anyone can imagine and still be popular.

2. In contrast, leaders of most world democracies have to worry about the #economy, #jobs, #Unemployment, #prices, #inflation, #recession, etc. If anything goes wrong with these, they might lose the next #election.

India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

The entire opposition in #India is a bunch of idiots. Be in the #CongressParty, the #TMC, the #AAP, the #DMK, the #JDU, or any of the 19 parties who have decided to boycott the inauguration of the #NewParliamentBuilding by #Modi or complaining about #SengolAtNewParliament

They are just playing Modi's game. And if you play his game, you will lose.

Modi is far better at optics than any of you. He understands that #Hindus love the idea of a Hindu symbol in Parliament. They don't care about the historicity.

And Modi also knows that, for all the talk about Constitutional propriety, nobody gives a damn about either Ram Nath Kovind or #PresidentMurmu - they know these are just puppets installed by Modi.

Modi's fans, which today are a majority of Hindus, want him to inaugurate it.

Despite all the hot air about #MakeinIndia, when India needs something important, #Modi has no faith in Indians, even when they have proved themselves.

Our own government organization, #CDAC has made world class supercomputers. They are the #PARAM class of clusters.

(1/) Image
The article in today's Hindu newspaper says that India wanted to get an 18 #petaflop (PF) computer. Well, the fastest computer in India is the #PARAM #Siddhi, located in #IISC Bangalore, with a peak speed of 5.3 PF. Now you want 18 PF.

In 2002, PARAM unveiled its first #teraflop (TF) computer. One PF is 1000 times faster than a TF. By 2020, they had come up with a PF computer. 1000x in 18 years. How long do you think it will take them to go 3x from their existing level?

A lot of people are upset that #Modi is going to inaugurate the new #ParliamentBuilding and not #PresidentMurmu

I don't have a problem with it. Frankly, I think the office of the President is a massive waste of taxpayer money, and should be abolished.

Rashtrapati Bhavan should be sold to the highest bidder and converted into a 7-star hotel, with a portion of their revenues going to the government.

Think about it. For a very long time, the Indian President has been just a #rubberstamp.

Whether it was Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed or #PratibhaPatil or #RamNathKovind or #DraupadiMurmu, the office has usually been filled with non-entities. These are political appointees who simply obey the diktats of the people who appointed them.

#Pakistan has blamed #Modi for destroying it's only surviving industry of printing Indian currency.
After 3-4 years of hardwork and investments now they had started printing ₹ 2000 Indian currency notes that were being sent mainly to Kashmir, Bengal and Kerala.
With this inhuman decision of Govt of India, they are set to loose US$ 2 million investments in the R&D and new printing machinery.

Notes in transit, both in Pakistan and within India, have become useless which is a loss of over US$ 10 million.
And more than 50,000. persons will become jobless which includes about 20,000 in printing factories and balance in logistics.

The official spokesperson of Pakistan also said that they were seriously missing good old days before 2014. 😃

It's now 12.21 pm, and the #KarnatakaElectionResults are firming up.

#CongressParty is leading in 124/224 seats, and #BJP is leading in 70, according to the #ECI website.

Whatever horse trading happens now, it is clear that this is a humiliating defeat for #PMModi

#Modi put his personal prestige on the line and addressed several mega rallies in Karnataka. The roads of Bangalore were closed off for several days so that Modi could do his roadshows.

Given all that, this is a huge #flop

Modi's image has taken a beating.

What this tells us is that:

Modi cannot make up for lousy governance.

The #doubleenginesarkara has failed #Karnataka

Other states may have doubts about enlisting Modi's help when their turn comes.

This tweet by a retired wealthy industrialist with too much time on his hands and no idea what to do with it illustrates what is wrong with India.

He extols the virtues of a clay water storage unit, the surahi, from the mid-20th century.


Of course, while he lives in unimaginable luxury, the likes of which we can't dream of.

It's a foolish comparison, because the surahi can only store and cool water by a few degrees, whereas the fridge can cool anything, preserve food, and make ice (needed for his scotch).

But that didn't stop Indian twitterati from going ga-ga over his tweet. Why?

Because if there's one thing guaranteed to give you applause in India today, it is hearkening to the past.
Our grandparents had the most wonderful life. Our country was great in the good old days.

Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.
