Earlier, companies could only give 7.5% of their profits as political donations. Despite opposition from the RBI, the finance ministry pushed through electoral bonds -- a scheme that RBI said leads to black money. @nit_set reports with documents
Let's support @stux and the mastodon community by contributing, whatever little we can... after all this is a platform we all enjoy using and no this doesn't have big pocket investors behind it. Good thing too, because investors would dictate directions (they do mostly) and the freedoms we enjoy would likely be lost...

Pause and watch this poetic ode to our #SanjhiVirasat, our humanity and connections. Share it with everyone.
A #Muslim boy grows up to become a #Sanskrit scholar - a Mahapandit, feted by the Brahmins of Benaras. Listen to him explain the true meaning of #VandeMataram and the connection between #ShashtangPranaam and #Namaaz @KarwaneMohabbat
Reminder that the term #UrbanNaxals was made up by a third-rate filmmaker frightened by free-thinking academia, media & individuals. The HM, frightened by the same things, turns an anti-intellectual smear campaign into national/internal security policy. https://www.thehindu.com/news/national/amit-shah-asks-crpf-to-go-after-urban-naxals/article29990585.ece
There are a few themes that pervade the #ayodhya judgment and they are:
2) Intellectual chicanery and
3) Bankruptcy of imagination.
@dushyant illustrate all in this must read analysis
Have finally written on this, might follow with a much longer piece later.
"A few themes that pervade the judgment and they are 1) Self-contradiction; 2) Intellectual chicanery and 3) Bankruptcy of imagination."
Humanity is sad today – it has lost its devotee. Peace is restless today – its protector is no more. The down – trodden have lost their refuge. The common man has lost the light in his eyes. The curtain has come down. The leading actor on the stage of the world displayed his final role and taken the bow...
-Vajpayee, on Nehru
“Nehru was born a Muslim, in a brothel in Allahabad, was an evil womanizer with all the bad personal habits who usurped the prime ministership from Sardar Patel. He foisted his progeny over the country and started a political dynasty. Everything that is wrong with India today is due to Nehru and he did not do anything right in his long stint as the Prime Minister.” The re-discovery of Nehru, by Toba Tek Sen
