Selfishness may be essential to civilization,

but that only raises the question of
whether a civilization so out of step with our evolved nature
makes sense for the human beings within it.

“Given how much is to be gained through generosity,
social scientists increasingly wonder less about why people are ever generous

and instead ask why they are even selfish.”

It took the Assamese to tell us to protest.

It took the Muslims to remind that we are all Indians together.

It took the Students to sustain the fury of the protest.

It took a Communist CM to refuse to yield.

And it took a Dalit called Azaad to remind us of the constitution

"Govt has to fund public education", Delhi HC allows JNU students to register at old rates; no late fee to be imposed.

Thank God, we are having some High Courts existing in India at least to create a perception that still we have judiciary around!

So, I'm hearing the clown party ruling India is now profiling people based on whether they eat poha or not.
Is there a beef poha that I could try, in order to completely rattle them?

Does anyone remember @GautamGambhir@twitter.com raving about poha when he should have been attending a meeting on the air quality in Delhi?

RT @harriszargar@twitter.com

The story is claiming that Davinder Singh was not only a RAW operative but may have part in engineering last year’s attack in #Kashmir's Pulwama that almost led India and #Pakistan to war. Is it a tacit acknowledgement that #Pulwama was an inside job?

"What has been electoral nectar for the bjp is political poison for India. By undermining the secular principles of the constitution, Mr Modi’s latest initiatives threaten to do damage to India’s democracy that could last for decades. They are also likely to lead to bloodshed."

Is India still a democracy? - Narendra Modi has bullied critics and suffocated the press into endorsing his Hindu-nationalist version of modern India. buff.ly/2unqkgs

Who said Protests against Fascism doesn't help. Keep up the #Resistance on all fronts. In the end you win.

So the BJP in Bangalore assumed that they demolished Bangladeshi huts, but in reality they belonged to the poor from other parts of Karnataka

RT @IndianPrism@twitter.activitypub.actor
BJP MLA Limbavalli claimed a slum in Bengaluru housed illegal Bangladeshi immigrants.

Authorities demolished the houses, rendered thousands homeless. Turns out they were ALL INDIANS with valid ID cards.

This is the cruelty unleashed by #CAA_NRC

Robert De Niro on speaking up irrespective of who you are: "There’s right and there’s wrong, and there’s common sense, and there’s abuse of power. And as a citizen, I have as much right as anybody, an actor, an athlete, a musician, anybody else, to voice my opinion. And if I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I’m going to use it whenever I see a blatant abuse of power.”
