The kind of documentation Leftists do is worth looking at (not endorsing emulation). Just look at @kavita_krishnan ‘s wiki profile. Look at the highlights in that profile &laugh at the sterility in intellectual caucuses of the leftovers of Left.
Between 2006-2011(my years of grad and post-grad) this lady often visited DU campus on some pretext to spew venom against the State.We assumed she was some professor.She was never formally introduced. Now I wonder how connected they are to get such routine access across academia.
I wish we students then had the kind of information symmetry &zeal to investigate pronouncements as we have today! From movie screenings to guest lectures to subtle intellectual nudges towards an ideological trajectory, these guys did all &much more without any credible dissent.
Only protests against these venomous guys we saw were by ABVP student members. And those was more physical. Where was the robust intellectual system then? Where were all such professors as we see them today?Surely, as students, we might have been emotional fools, but as teachers?

A successful, super rich actress who tom-toms about her commercial success akin to the most popular among male co-stars seeking refuge of safety in taxpayers’ paid govt. security doesn’t go down well with logic - feminist and/or financial prudence.

I will explain. (Thread)
First,no one in the taxpayers’ hard earned money led govt. should be for responsible for any private citizens’ irresponsible&malicious statements.

Second,if one makes a conscious &informed choice to speak,one must be wo/man enough to defend what one says without playing victim.
Third, the fact that she is a gutsy woman can not be used as a license to twist the question of illegality of construction to personal victimisation alone. For all moral grandstanding, why not put out papers in the public domain&then continue with the praiseworthy personal might?

Had admired some of the academic works of this person. Didn’t know that someone like her too can’t accept genuine criticism.

She quoted a mathematically dishonest argument to establish that NE Indians suffer less racism than South Indians. Merely pointing that out meant 👇 Image
I mean, what is it with non-left self appointed ideological guards?Why so touchy for no goddamn reason?I rarely indulge in harmless Twitter banter. While i was in a jovial exchange between @Iyervval @Abhina_Prakash &an ex-colleague, this person with many others chose to jump in..
..&nitpick on the word ‘Madarasi’ that was used bereft of any political intonations. Having studied English literature formally &Hindi literature informally (and studied well!), i guess i know how to use sarcasm or subversive humor to drive home a point.

Find it really sad..

I will, in this thread, debunk these slanderous and carefully crafted lies by @devduttmyth and in order to do so will quote ONLY from learnt musical verses inspired by Lok reception of SiyaRam in Mithila, that is Bihar (historic reception).

1st song at the onset of wedding:
दूल्हे के मंडप में बैठते ही इस गीत से उसका स्वागत होता है। कहिये ना @devduttmyth जी कैसे श्रीराम के नाम को बिहार और मिथिलावासियों ने भुला दिया?

Have to call out Aditya Mani Jha. I wrote a few book reviews while he worked at the Sunday Guardian. Used to pitch my book choices &reviews to his boss &him. Later, as happened with many in media (over political views), he distanced himself, blocked me &spread canards &lies.
Let me explain the extent of this passive harassment via slanders - he confessed right here on Twitter how he ganged up against me with several of his editorial friends to ensure i don’t get published. I didn’t respond because it was &still is a royal waste of my time &mind space
Aditya has extended his petty one sided fight to a shoddy write up in @firstpost &maligned the reputation of my book. I challenge him to prove that in our book we have ‘conflated’ the identities of Bangladeshi Muslims &Muslims speaking Bangla in Assam. He needs to be called out.

आज त्रयोदशी है। पीहर में रुद्राभिषेक है। और यहाँ से पूजा में शरीक होने का एक ही माध्यम। जितने गीत भोले के नाम का गा सकूँ। वहाँ होती तो भी यही कर रही होती। वैदिक श्लोकों के साथ साथ लौकिक गायन देव पूजन को सम्पूर्ण करता है। इहलोक और परलोक दोनों तारता है। आप भी गाइए! 🙏
जय शिव शंकर।

एक अदाकारा हैं।उनके हिम्मत की बहुत दाद देती हूँ मैं।खुलकर किसी विषय पर अपनी बात रखती हैं जो हिंदी फ़िल्म जगत् में अक्सर नहीं होता।

उनकी एक फ़िल्म आयी। काफ़ी नाम हुआ पर मुझे बहुत अच्छा नहीं लगा। मेरी पोएटिक सेन्सिबिलिटी में फ़िट नहीं हुआ। लिख दिया तो आजतक ट्रोल होती हूँ।
अब हद हो रही है क्योंकि कुछ नहीं मिला तो झूठी बात फैलायी जा रही है। जो नहीं कहा वो स्टेट्मेंट मेरे ऊपर अस्क्राइब किए जा रहे हैं। क्यों भई?
किसी को व्यक्तिगत रूप से पसंद करना, उसके काम को भी सराहना और उसकी पॉलिटिक्स को भी - ऐसा हर फ़्रंट पे हो ज़रूरी नहीं है! मैं विभेद करूँगी!
जो लोग जनता की सराहना के लिए काम करते हैं - फ़िल्मी सितारे, नेता, 'पॉप्युलर' पत्रकार - वो अपने काम नहीं, अपने फ़ालोअर्ज़ के लिए अधिक जाने जाते हैं। सभी तरीक़े के फ़ालोअर्ज़ बन पाएँ उसके लिए वाहवाही के साथ आलोचना झेलनी ही पड़ती है।आलोचना की आदी नहीं हैं तो आलोचकों को पढ़ना क्यों?
