13% of the Demonetisation supporters now oppose it!


India has completed almost one month of Demonetisation! There seemed to be a huge support for the same, to an extent that those who opposed it were either termed money hoarders or anti nationals. However we sensed a change in mood of the country after about 2 weeks of demonetisation.

The polls which were conducted on Twitter and AwareMonk were collated and analysed and from the 1,74,230 people participating in Twitter polls and 800 participating on AwareMonk there was an evident dip in support for the Demonetisation.


The polls were divided into 2 segments and while 8th Nov to 18th Nov 86% (weighted avg.) people participating in the polls were pro Demonetisation there was a dip of 13% (resulting only 73% people supporting it) on Twitter. A similar trend was noticed on AwareMonk as well wherein a drip of 11%, from 79% to 68% (weighted avg.), was noticed.


Though the majority still supports demonetisation but as soon as the traders were hit there was a ripple effect on the consumers and suppliers (majorly farmers). From the feedback we gathered the poll takers mentioned they were now spending less time in Bank and ATM queue yet they had expected the questions to vanish in 15 days, thus the increase in distress.

Curfew for third consecutive month! Amongst the India-Pakistan battle is Kashmir yet again forgotten?

India-Pakistan battle is coinciding with Kashmir completing three months of self-injuring uprising that has already cost dearly to the valley, both in terms of lives lost, injured or maimed. With nothing positive happening between India-Pakistan, is it possible that the kashmir issue will again be forgotten? There is an urgent need for peace in the valley for which no action taken can be seen.

Building a Tibetan Internet Army

With leading international organizations and student bodies doing commendable work for Tibet’s cause, it’s time we congregate and use technology to take this struggle to the next level. And in today’s day and age, there is nothing more potent than an Internet movement.


This discussion kicks-off the initiative to bring together experts and activists to form a consolidated front. It will broadly touch open the following issues plaguing the Tibetans:


Human rights issues

Threat to their culture

Environmental degradation

Self-immolation

Call for freedom or middle-way approach

How the global citizens can leverage the strength of the Internet to amplify Tibetan voices and force change.

De-Criminalisation of Section 377: Why is law driven by religion?

Section 377 reads:

“Unnatural offences: Whoever voluntarily has carnal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for life, or with imprisonment of either description for term which may extend to ten years, and shall also be liable to fine.”

In simple words, the section makes physical relations between two consenting adults of the same sex a punishable offence. Further, the reference to “intercourse against the order of nature” also criminalises sexual activity like anal sex, fellatio (commonly known as blowjob) etc., even if it takes place between a man and a woman. However, although not mentioned in so many words, sexually assaulting a minor too invites a punishment under Section 377, apart from the relevant sections of the POCSO (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences) Act. Necrophilia (sexual intercourse with a dead body), sex with animals and other such ‘unnatural’ practices too fall under the ambit of the section.

Despite strong women rights laws we have not been able to end the discrimination against women. What more is needed?

Of all the evils for which man has made himself responsible, none is so degrading, so shocking or so brutal as his abuse of the better half of humanity; the female sex (not the weaker sex).” Mahatma Gandhi

As we grow into an economic and political powerhouse in the international arena, the rights and opportunities that have been provided for all of us in the Constitution are also gaining prominence. Additionally, women have taken the centre stage by gradually moving into the workforce and getting career-oriented. However, mental, physical and sexual harassment, misogyny and gender inequality continue to be a way of life for most of them. It is in this context that her awareness of the legal rights, mandated by Indian law, gains significance.

"India would be more than half a century late for the global education commitment” reports UNESCO. What exactly went wrong?

From mid day meal, to 'school chale hum' campaign, to a lot of innovation in edtech, a lot has been tried. But the results have been upsetting.

The report says there is an urgent need for greater headway in education and the sector needs a major transformation to fulfil the needed potential and meet the current challenges facing humanity and the planet. What should be the key focus area:

1. Focus on public schools, or promoting private schools

2. Attracting bright young people to pursue teaching as a profession.

3. Increase in investment

4. Innovation in technology rtc.
