After he was overthrown and ousted from Delhi in 1540, Emperor Humayun and his family sought refuge in Iran. His son Akbar was born on the long journey. The baby, left in the care of attendants for safety, rejoined his parents 3yrs later. Humayun, curious whether Akbar would recognize his mother. Although she entered the court without fanfare, Akbar immediately ran into his mother’s arms. This remarkable act of recognition is included in the Akbarnama as early evidence of the emperor’s greatness

It's heartening to note that SC has referred Aadhaar as Money Bill to a 7 Judge Bench ! In a functional democracy governed under Rule of Law, the government will put hold on expanding the scheme.

But the Thugs will speed up to make it a fait accompli by the time 7 Judge Bench decides on the legality.

Such an awful country 🙄

In the initial years, Indians turned their noses up at watery Sahib tea.

A large scale promotional campaign by the Indian Tea Association made tea popular & perhaps more milky? Tea breaks in factories & offices, tea stalls at railways stations, and that’s how the British made tea-drinkers out of us!

Chai. Chaya. Chaha. Choi. Chaa. Call it what you may. Runs in our bloodstreams today.

I agree 100%. On Twitter as a journalist who already got frequently attacked, I chose my words carefully (barring the occasional angry, dripping with sarcasm tweets that one has to indulge in time and again for sanity).

Here, I feel free to speak my mind, and speak to like minded people who are not out to misinterpret everything that is said.

It's absolutely a feel good moment.

8. The legal notice said the facial recognition system has "a complete lack of legality” and is “likely to result in the creation of powerful surveillance architecture that will inevitably be prone to misuse." Read the legal notice here. internetfreedom.in/maskon/

7. Privacy has been upheld as a "fundamental right" by the Supreme Court. The court has said the invasion in privacy can only be justified if it has (a) a legal basis, (b) a legitimate purpose, and (c) it is proportionate to the need for the purpose. read barandbench.com/wp-content/upl

5. It will have options to upload “bulk subject images” and “CCTV feeds” to “generate alerts if a blacklist match is found.” The video feeds will be sourced from “CCTVs deployed in various critical identified locations” or “from private or other public organization’s video feeds"

Thread: Indian govt will soon launch world's biggest face recognition system. A tool that can source citizens' images from multiple govt databases, CCTV feeds. Can identify a person by facial features and tag them. And what will it do to safeguard citizens' privacy, consent? Read
