The only man who was critical of everything wrong in the Indian Society and called for a reform. Be it caste, education, women rights, or oppression. He saw a flaw, he pointed and worked towards making it right.

Ok so I'm a little late to this game.

Jonathan here!

I'm an Emergency Medicine Specialist working in Kerala, India. (Tiny missing details are always good 😜)

Made the jump from the birdsite because I'm just sick of their obvious far right bias.

Figured I could come here a safe space and make a fresh start.

I intend to toot about medicine, health, football (Bayern Munich), little bit of politics, and anything funny that I might come across.

Stay awesome everyone!

These pictures speaks a thousand words if not more. India is the most insensitive country towards differently abled people and this gesture is heartwarming.

If you can follow Malayalam, don't miss this supremely cute & heart-warming video of a kids football group meeting in a village, meant to raise funds to buy a ball. Someone who happened to walk by recorded the event. After the video went viral, the group received offers for Jerseys, ball and & an invite to a big match.

Help needed: I have a young 16 year old neighbor in Islamabad who has lost his mom recently. He has also been diagnosed with learning disabilities inc dyslexia. He is struggling a LOT. Do you know of any resources for children with learning disabilities? Or special schools? Or even connections with facilities in Khi/Lhr?

I was once a PR guy before turning into digital media planning and buying. I can confidently tell you one thing -

Look at the timing of this piece in ET . Bird site India is truly feeling the pinch.

@shahid @Dasbolshevik I'm from Thalassery too.
My parents recounted the fear with which they lived during that period to us yesterday after the verdict. It was depressing. I'm glad we have good leaders and a strong party now, and our strong sense of community is also commendable.

Aaron Swartz. Born on this day! November 8, 1986. He would have been 33 today.

November 9 will be observed all over the world as Aaron Swartz Day — an annual event to celebrate Aaron Swartz’s legacy as an activist, programmer, entrepreneur & political organizer.

Hackathons would be organised, where diverse & passionate folks would gather & exchange ideas with each other, who believe in Freedom of & and Securing Digital Space for all.

Remember 9th November! 💜

@Mastodon is like a beautiful new girlfriend who is perfect, but you fear that you may go back to your ex due to the long past and influence of friends!

Many folks are asking, how one gets verified on Mastodon?

There is no system of getting verified like birdsite or unverified badges. Those are simple stickers.

Username<space>:v e r i f i e d: will get you :verified:
Username<space>:u n v e r i f i e d: will get you :unverified:

Issued in public interest :)

I’m Shahid, an Indian (Keralite) based in Dubai. Im @shahidm on Twitter.

I hope to toot anecdotes on modern history here, mostly stuff from 1945 to 1991 - post war, Cold War, the sixties kind of stuff.
