On #GitaJayanti, I prostrate before Sri Krishna for conceptualising the Bhagwad Gita, Ved Vyasa for compiling these powerful spiritual ideas, and Sri Aurobindo for taking them to the next level.
A thread...
The one shloka from the Bhagwad Gita that has dominated the 2020 discourse is on dealing with death:

नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि नैनं दहति पावकः ।
न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः ॥

Weapons cannot cleave it, nor the fire burn, nor do the waters drench it, nor the wind dry.
I have had to send these words of solace to many friends and relatives this year.
But finding solace requires us to read the Gita, live it.
Die the body will but death is only a passport to the next life, next evolution, the Bhagwad Gita tells us.
That’s how I read this shloka.

All those cheering UK policy banning #5G equipment from #Huawei, calm down.

Policy: Buying new Huawei #5G equipment banned after 31 December 2020.

Implication: Nothing -- UK telecommunications firms are free to buy all #Huawei equipment they want, and more, over the next five months.
Policy: Existing ban on Huawei from most sensitive ‘core’ parts of 5G network remains.

Implication: Nothing -- no change from previous policy.

Until China reforms, Made in China firms must be treated with as much caution and precaution as India is treating the Made in China pandemic…

My essay in @orfonline argues why #Huawei must not be allowed into India's #5G
India will not be alone in rejecting #Huawei.
UK proposes a D10 club of democratic partners for #5G:
-- G7
-- Australia
-- South Korea
-- India…
Apart from a thin ideological constituency and vested business interests, China has limited appeal left in much of India’s imagination…

The primary issue around Clause 7.1 is that the right to property as a fundamental right was snatched away from Indians in 1978.

A short thread...
Between 1951 through 1976, seven amendments—1st (1951), 4th (1955), 17th (1964), 25th (1971), 39th (1975), 40th (1976), and 42nd (1976)—were brought in, all of which were struck down by the Supreme Court.
Finally, with the 44th Amendment (1978) and the repeal of Article 19(1)(f), the right to property was taken away.
With two exceptions:
1. Minorities to establish and administer educational institutions.
2. Persons holding land for personal cultivation within the ceiling limit.
