I've been throttled since last week when I started promoting mastodon on my handle. I have to tag other famous people to retweet to some tweets which were again promotional. Then got irritated and quit after I saw that my complaints against caste based abuse wasn't acted upon for 2 days. While people reporting the Ayodhya judgement. Like just reporting got suspended in minutes.

Student delegates at AISA All India Conference at Hyderabad yesterday, standing in silence in honour of the indefatigable social justice fighter PS Krishnan. If any one out there is dreaming of being a bureaucrat - be one like PS Krishnan.

Am getting to know this place, so drop a line and say hey.

A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.
- Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

Still getting to know this site, or instance, or whatever.

I am following some people that I know from the Other Side (Dark Side?) but if you want me to follow you, let me know. (As in just say "Hi, we know each other.")

Fairly open to suggestions because I have fewer expectations of silliness here.

@girishNaught There is a user on twitter looping in the HMO & Amit Shah and asking for Mastodon to be banned.

I had quite forgotten what it was like to go three days without being trolled, abused, or piled on. It's a nice feeling. Thanks, Mastodon.

As the 10th Chief Election Commissioner of India, T.N. Seshan's left a mark on the country's electoral system. No he was not perfect, but hell, he had spine.

There will be many tributes to T N Seshan, who headed the Election Commission when it was proud to be independent. I loved his succinct summary of the fate of nations:

"We lost character everywhere. Fundamental laws of physics: human nature turns to chaos. I will give you a simple example. Don't go to your son's bedroom for 15 days. It will look like a warfield. To make it clean, you need to put in energy. To make it unclean, you don't need any effort. Third law of thermodynamics."

A nation needs a strong system, not a strong leader. Strong leaders weaken systems. If you think your strong leader will save you, you live in a nightmare. Also, you are kind of stupid.

Thanks for all the love, help and making this an incredibly welcoming space for debate and conversation.
