Importance of Student's Politics for India!

Image
After the last year JNU incident, there is a certain naive group emerged on the social media which wants to abolish all student unions in universities. The argument that they give are, "Why so we need politics in institutions meant to study? Are the student there to do politics or to study?"

I want to start with an example of my own alma mater the National Institute of Science Education and Research. I have studied over 5 years in this institute and it has so many awesome faculties and I have very fortunate to have been with the guidance of one of the brilliant minds of the nation. But, there is also a side which is called the administration, and just like any other administration of any other college of India, the students in my college also are very critical about it. We students had our regular issues like  Delay in releasing scholarships every month.Issues in Internet Facility provided.Funding needed for college funds not getting sanctioned.Non-Eatable Food in Mess.Choic…

Ramjas Incident : ABVP - The Potential RAPISTS

Image
Umar Khalid the controversial figure from the JNU was supposed to speak in a seminar at Ramjas College at around 1 PM. At around 12:30 p.m about 100 ABVP goons stormed the seminar place. So, the organizers decided to form a human chain from the back door to let Umar speak in the event. After about 15 mins, the numbers of ABVP goons increased four fold and all the gates were barricaded by the ABVP goons. The organizers contacted the Delhi Police to help in the situation. Here is what they replied.
"Since, you have not taken permission for the event to be organised in your OWN college from us we are not bound to protect you. If there is any law and order situation that prevails here ONLY the organizers will be responsible for that"
Umar cancelled his presentation there and did not go. The next morning, the ABVP people as usual started their propaganda based on a blatant yet sensational LIE via whatsapp, facebook etc. that Umar Khalid, who was "convicted" from every s…

Virtual Power

In the movie Raanjhanaa (2013) there is a scene where the party workers of All India Citizen Party (AICP) are setting up tents for their rally and suddenly police arrives and starts removing the tents with help of their force. Suddenly, Zoya starts a fight with the police and the following dialogues happen.
Kundan: रिकॉर्ड तो नहीं किया ? (did you record?) Kundan's Friend: हाँ! हो गया। अपलोड करना है क्या ? (Yes! It's done. You want it uploaded?)    Kundan to police guy: कोई बात नहीं। मैं देख लूंगा। और सर , अगर ये इलेक्शन में हम दो सीट भी जीत गए न तो ट्रांसफर नहीं  करवाएंगे आपका। पक्का ! (Don't worry, I will handle it. And sir, if we manage to win even 2 seats in the next election, then we will not transfer you for sure.) Police Guy : अरे सर। हमें भी तो ऊपर से आर्डर आते हैं न ! वैसे हमारी आपसे कोई ज्यादती दुश्मनी तो है नहीं।(Oh Sir! We also get orders from above. Isn't it? Otherwise we dont have any personal animosity towards you) Sorry!

This above scene is one such exa…

The Propaganda of India and Pakistan

In the last few days, the propaganda machine for creating an India Pakistan war is very active on the social media and even mainstream media. An unfortunate incident happened in Uri where four heavily armed terrorists killed our 18 soldiers in a cowardly attack. This incident came as an opportunity for these TV channels like Times Now, India News, Zee News, News X. It is as if they were just waiting for something like this to happen. The person that benefited the most from this attacks are neither Pakistan nor it's "non-state" actors nor the separatists. The TRP of these news channels in the last few days increased in a huge manner. These "journalists" appear in prime time television showing how "nationalist" they are but in reality they must be celebrating with the death of soldiers because it allowed them to fool the public into the rhetoric of destroying Pakistan. 
Then yesterday our beloved honorable prime minister gave a speech in which he asked…

The Curious Case of Bakrid

Image
The ideology behind the festival Eid-ul-Adha famously known as Bakrid in India is a stupid one but the way it is celebrated (by slaughtering animals and eating) is not! Let me explain! It began with a dream in which an imaginary character "GOD" {Which Does Not Exist (full form of WDNE) in real} demanded the sacrifice of the child as a proof of allegiance to itself. And that fool even agreed to it even the child agreed to it! When he was about to do it apparently out of nowhere, the voice said that instead you sacrifice one of your pet animal. So, basically the sequence of Event could have been unfolded as I quote something which I saw from on a facebook page,
*God roams around the universe managing billions of galaxies*
*Gets bored*
*Visits middle East on planet Earth, solar system, Milky way galaxy in a remote cluster (old number 13, new number 4327)*
God: "Hey Abraham!"
Abraham: "Yes God?"
God: "Kill your son and prove your loyalty to me"

Yes, so we indians are going to celebrate our Independence day for the 70th time. There can be many views both pessimistic and optimistic about the nation on where it stands today. When we look at the social media we can see that many people (including me sometimes) behave like children on various issues concerned. I am still on the optimist's side. No, for me there is no "neutral" opinion regarding this issue. The britishers were the worst kind of looters that indians have experienced in the past. Many of my friends believe that india was better with the britishers than they are with the present kind of politicians. Such kind of thoughts are not only regressive but factually wrong. Let me present some of the facts here.  Before the british arrived in Indian shores, the share of Indian economy GDP worldwide was 23%. By the time the british left it was below 4%. Why? Simply because India was being governed for the benefit of the britishers. The rise of the "great&qu…

The Nationalist Game - Traitors and PatRIOTs

Image
This post of mine is going to offend a lot of people and might even put me in jail if it goes even a little bit viral but I am going to write it anyways. I will explain today why it is so dangerous to play the nationalist game which the current political party who is in power is playing. Over the last six months, it is a topic of great interest whether one is a country loving person or country hating person. It all started with the JNU incident which exposed the childishness of the present central government of tackling the students who are unhappy with the regimes on the issue of education policies. The result being a huge embarrassment for the government nationally and internationally. We have been taught that the national interest is supreme above any individual and its right. I always thought myself as a strong nationalist. The funny thing is no one really knows what a nationalist means. I will do an attempt to define it today.

So, Let's ask ourselves who is a Nationalist? A pe…
