We started out selling manure from our micro compost centres in Malls and shopping complexes in the city.

This one is from Phoenix Mall, Velachery. The counter is close to the food court in the 3rd floor.

Do drop in if you are around.

1. Okay, here is a brief thread on Chile. As you know, there have been widespread protests in recent days, driven primarily by economic inequality (Chile is one of the most unequal countries in the world). Counter-intuitively, at the root of this inequality is the Chilean Constitution. The Constitution was drafted in 1980, as part of a transition from military to civil rule.

Did they decide to give some plot of land near pamba for women devotees in today's Sabarimala verdict?

@ranjona @siri_resist I identify with a similar experience as well, @anandrkris - moving from political disinterest to actively seeking to cultivate a more informed view post the Tughlaq-ian shenanigans of 8-11. What I still haven't come to grips with is the large numbers of supposedly educated folks choosing to remain willingly blind.

I run a free newsletter called Caferati Listings, which shares writing jobs, assignments, calls for entries and submissions and the like; basically, opportunities for writers. It has just over 1600 subscribers.
After a good run, I kind of stopped sending it for five years, but restarted it earlier this year. You can see the archives at groups.google.com/group/Cafera
If you have opportunities for writers you'd like to share, tell me.

(Boosts much appreciated. Thank you.)

Go to the birdsite's search option and search for this url thefederal.com/opinion/2019/11 (good one by @gradwolf on Kamal Haasan's 'Hey Ram' and its relevance today). Check how many search results you get. I got just one. That too by someone who tweeted from France, even though so many people had shared it. Interesting! cc: @girishNaught

@Battrebeet @sankarshan oh and there is also the loud assertion of Nationality, religion and caste (if they are dominant or it comes from a place of ritual/status/genetic superiority). Many of us are honestly done being tolerant of that shit. Social media has fanned these feelings of superiority, in a very jarring way. It would be nice to create a safe space free of all that honestly.

I think the RW thought process if it is civil & seeking genuine engagement, is okay. But most RW people don't want that. They feel extremely threatened by Leftist ideas and go ad hominem on people. Most of us here already know the RW arguments on basically everything. While I don't see echo chambers as a bad thing, not because I'm intolerant because I'm mostly bored with dumb & illogical arguments (but that's just me), if people aren't being directly abusive. It's fine.

OKAY! So it's been a couple of days since I joined Mastodon, which means it's time for a history thread. Going by tootles' responses, I'm going to be starting with these fascinating artefacts: the hero stones of the medieval Deccan.

Remember the famous line from the Field of Dreams?

"If you build it, they will come."

The month of November, 2019 saw a huge spike of interest in MSTDN. They came indeed. How do we keep them here? That is the task before all of us users.

There will be so much of diverse interests. How do we keep every new comer excited enough return again? How to we keep them excited enough to engage, participate and contribute?

I am posing these questions because I do not know how?
