While it's been a couple of days already, and this has finally sunk in and still get a feeling of emptiness of Champions being over, thought I'd share a few things that I've experienced, felt and learnt through this whole experience from Masters 3 to Champions. #thread
First off, been an esports aficionado ever since I was a kid, I mean, who hasn't. Still remember going to Hakone, Hiranandani, back then for CS and Unreal Tourneys (That was the Valorant of those days) and eventually running a gaming cafe when I dropped out a year in college. 1/n
Heck I even built and sold PCs like Rocket Singh, and spent rest of my time either playoff PC games with customers who came to the gaming cafe... That's when I realized, if only I could just do this for a living, I mean of course it didn't pay much... 1/n

I just think #RheaChakraborthy should stand in front of all the media houses and answer them to every question with issues that Media should be covering rather than her, 1/n
Media: Did you kill the #SushanthSinghRajput ?

Rhea: No, it was suicide, just like other 10,281 #Farmers and 32,559 #Dailywagers did last year. Please cover it. #Nextquestion 2/n
Media: Where did those 15 Crores go?

Rhea: it is in the same place where our #GDPData , currently at -.23.9% down, is going. Please cover this point also. #Nextquestion 3/n

#PUBG stands for "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds"

#FAUG stands for "We Can't Even Come Up with An Original Name for A Game We Want To Copy And Sell In The Name of Nationalism."
I mean come one... thoda toh originality? A little bit? Maybe?

No?

OK then.
Trolls: "HOW DARE YOU INSULT A GAME WHICH DOES NOT EXIST BUT IS CLEARLY MEANT TO MAKE US FEEL PROUD OF OUR SOLDIERS AND COPY-PASTE ABILITIES AND COUNTRY AND EVERYTHING ELSE ABOUT INDIA?"

Banning #PubG is fine.

Real question is why India hasn't produced world-leading apps. With our "English advantage" aren't we a "software superpower", but have practically zero product companies to show for vs China where they study in Chinese-medium.

Here is an answer. Contrary to the propaganda, English is India's liability. It cuts off 90%+ people from technology and technical education. Even the remaining percent don't really get proficient unlike those studying in mother tongues, the world over.

Why? Why is India unable to rise up on the value chain and produce world leading apps and technology products?

#PUBG is banned in India. In case you don't play the game but want to sound cool when you talk about it with your friends, we've got five fast facts - just for you! 👇🏾 Image
1. #PUBG has nothing to do with pubs or alcohol drinkage.
It stands for Player Unknown's Battle Grounds.
2. If you win in #PUBG, you get to see the phrase "Winner Winner Chicken Dinner".

This expression came about in the aftermath of the Great Depression. People who gambled and won money could afford chicken dinners, which were otherwise considered a luxury. Image

GOI is considering increasing customs duty on 20 product segments including laptops, textiles & aluminum goods to restrict Chinese imports.
Steps taken over past 2 months with this one will result in China losing more than 100 Billion USD if quantified.

For everyday PLA stays at LAC, we'll bleed them financially.
When the time is right, we'll bleed them in flesh & blood too.

If you're celebrating #PUBG being saved as a personal victory, you're :
- A teenager.
- Not fulfilling your potential in life.

A video game shouldn't be the centre of your world if you're a grown adult.

Life is the true video game.
And others are racing ahead of you, my friend.
Funny that all the backlash comments on this one are either

- Teens/college students. I understand this. Life will harden you later.

- Aspiring gaming creators. Good energy. Prove me wrong.

- Mid 20s corporate employees. Along with ganja and daaru, this is your new escape.
Find me an entrepreneur, high potential start up professional or talented freelancer who believes that #PUBG being saved is a personal victory.

These types of humans have bigger, more important battles to fight.

The lesser your ambition, the more you'll defend nonsense.

"Data-access requests that most Chinese mobile applications make outnumber their non-Chinese alternatives."

My Extensive analysis of Mobile applications+devices of Chinese firms & the possibilities of Data harvesting.

indiatoday.in/business/story…

#dataprotection #TikTok #Mitron
Ever wondered how many permissions you grant when you install a Chinese app on your mobile handsets?

When data is regarded as the vital fuel for the digital economy, data-access requests that most Chinese mobile applications make outnumber their non-Chinese alternatives.
Either available on the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store, these applications usually list permissions they require for installation.

A comparative analysis of Play Store information reveals startling facts about the volume of data Chinese applications seek from their users

In an action that is wrong-headed in every possible way, the Gujarat police have arrested 16 young people for playing an online multiplayer game game.

In that light, a thread- What we have got wrong about #PUBG, we have been getting wrong about young people.

#PUBGban (1/11)
Arresting youth for playing #PUBG/gaming is a new low. Even for a country that has successfully criminalized adolescence and regularly puts young people behind bars for expressing consensual desire. (2/11)
One can chalk the #PUBG arrests to the fact that police are confused by new media or as a cynical attempt at publicity. But it is part of a larger ever-present narrative:

In which the state wants to control what young people eat, read, how they act, think & how they play (3/11)
