Pinned toot

I like the calm here. The 🐦site was terrible for my mental wellbeing.

Was on it just to be on the lookout for the next crackdown or ethnic cleansing engineered by the govt.

12.45am, and women are walking, on scooters, in cabs, with pretty much the same expression as they’d have at 12.45pm. Of course there are neighbourhoods that demand more caution, but Mumbai still gives women access to its public spaces with far more grace and openness than any other place in India.

This government has gained an expertise in creating imaginary enemies.

Whenever people start questioning their shitty performance, some lackey of theirs points and says, "LOOK! THOSE STUDENTS! THEY'RE EVILLLL!"

News channels also follow suit and the demonization begins.

A young girl who is a topper on all the courses had to commit suicide as their classmates didn't like a Muslim topper. In my view this not a suicide but a murder of grotesque kind

The NCRB data on farmer suicides, its omissions on the reasons, and Maharashtra's overwhelming representation in those figures reminded me of a key character from The Caravan's investigation into Judge Loya's death: Dr Makarand Vyawahare. (1/n)

Waving off farmer's loan isn't bad economics. That the farmers are in a position so it has to be done is the bad economics. That the govts have failed to setup a system in place where farming is viable is the bad economics.

When the corporate loans are written off, the middle class quite don't see the same way. For them, the capitalists who represent "merit" and "competition" are allowed to make mistakes. Farmers are not.
