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...
Pls support the community

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.

There are a few themes that pervade the #ayodhya judgment and they are:

1) Self-contradiction;
2) Intellectual chicanery and

The curtain has come down. The leading actor on the stage of the world displayed his final role and taken the bow...

Telegraph is the mother of all savages. Give a noble prize to the editor.

“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

मुझे पता नहीं था के झूठन का दूसरा खंड भी है। पहले खंड ने दिल निचोड़ दिया था। रुलाया, सोने नहीं दिया। अगर आप सच में जानना चाहते हैं के जाति शोषण का क्या मतलब होता है और दिल में हिम्मत रखते हैं अपनी और इस समाज, इस देश की असलियत जानने की, तो झूठन ज़रूर पढ़ें।
