Liberals have a big problem in failing to have a discussion within liberal circles. Once a point of view is adopted, it becomes sacrilege to question it. And some of the positions taken by liberals recently are really questionable. Look at Syria, has anyone given a critical look at the west's position and role in the civil war? One can almost conclude that the west is supporting illiberal opposition groups to fight against a semi-liberal government.

India among deadliest countries for journalists since 1992. Why are we quite about it?

Today's journalists operate like middlemen [ and women] for people in power or people in big businesses. They have also become ideology driven.If a news story does not favour the ideology of the journalist, a highly biased version of such story is presented.Most of young journos also appear opposed to Hindus and Hindu way of life.Overwhelming majority of Hindus do not eat beef nor do they support beef eating - but overwhelming majority of young Hindu journos appear opposed to the idea of ban on cow slaughter.Many of them should be sent to countries like Saudi Arabia on assignments.

Saddam Hussein never intended to use chemical weapons against the world. US 'got it so wrong' on Saddam Hussein: Ex-CIA agent

The whole world knew that the weapons of mass destruction hype was deliberately created by the American war machine and was amplified by the pliant obidient media called the Free Press and the result was the complete destruction of Iraq, the killing of more than a million innocent civilians and a collapse of a society. This war crime for which Bush and Blair are primarily responsible has been ignored.

Can the recent privatisation in Indian Defence help us stop the massive Defence Scams?

In my point of view, there is a less corruption in private sector than government sector. But privatisation is not the complete solution or panacea for corruption. We all know that private sector also pays bribe for clearance and contract through political connection. If we want to eliminate corruption completely then we have to change the mindset of people completely. Government should formulate stringent rule and law. Quick punishment for bribe taker as well as bribe taker. And I want to conclude my statement that we should initiate rather wait for other and disseminate awareness about disadvantage of bribe taking or giving.

Something is better than nothing is not true for every aspect, and thus hiring retired teachers in schools might not be that great a step

Most of these teachers teach just one year and repeat that same lecture and notes till they retire, may be 25 years or 35 years of their service. My father was taught by the same teacher who taught me Chemistry. The notes were the same, they should be asked to retire even earlier. Only some keep up originality and thought especially in the Humanities.

57% of students in the country are educated but are not adequately prepared for employment. The survey also said that 75% teachers have called for a restructuring of course curricula in collaboration with industry and they felt that the country’s education assessment framework lacks specific action points for teachers and parents to enable holistic education.

We are not yet in the grip of fascism . In the first term of the BJP the movement has been towards consolidating a tight authoritarian ring around the 'charismatic' figure of N. Modi, infiltrating all institutions with RSS people particularly academic institutions,RSS Governors for states, weakening other institutions with pressure form the center and if a second term is delivered to them for a tragic lack of alternative the drive towards fascism will accelerate. It will take ten fifteen years of this 'RSS- neoliberal' mutation to destroy democracy in India.

Cashless payment is the next best disruption now. However how should it be regulated?

A legal framework that can identify and set out the rights and obligations of each payment system participant in the ordinary course of business and in adverse conditions is a robust one. This will require predictability on how the regulator applies its rules and regulations (circulars and guidelines) and oversees its applicability to payment system operators. It will have to cover the plethora of instruments and test them for conflict such as with the new insolvency and banking laws. Seamless cooperation between the bodies involved in policy and regulatory development must be forged so as to oversee consistent application of rules and regulations governing all participants. The playing ground for entrepreneurs must be levelled so as to provide confidence, stability and integrity in the financial system.

BJP government brought demonetization of Rs.500 and Rs.1,000 notes to weed out corruption and control terrorism. But off-late even after one month, nothing is happening after demonetization. More corruption, black money business and terrorism has increased overally. So afterall what best has happened due to demonetization? Only increased black marketing of money, terrorism has increased and many of our brave Jawans are martyred by enemies of peace and corruption in the new form of Rs.2,000 which uses less space even in pocket. The only affected are general public who are harassed and could not take their own money from the bank or ATMs as Banks and ATMs are mostly empty coffers. Most affected are in the villages and heard that many are going hungry as their hard-earned money is now shred of papers as their access to banks and ATMs are limited and over that banks and ATMs are maximum time getting emptied in no time and many left out dry and high. I am very critical about this demonetization as this has led to market getting affected very badly and unemployment on the rise. Where is money?

"Government gears up to facilitate Aadhar based financial transactions through mobile phones" Is this an unplanned, fast scaled development which can never lead to success?

All bhakts on an hystericak high need to find themselves some neutral advice; such as information on how to spot a liar on TED talk. Any sensible person does not support or oppose a person, but the thought process, particularly poisonous perverted thoughts served in moralistic flavours. But why be concerned and crazed like his bhakts? One knows that life cycle takes care of everything. A generation and more may be lost and millions of lives may go waste. But ultimately everything shall pass, good or bad. What he may be trying to do is just a line on the sands of time. If he had even slightest sense, he should have cleaned up his act on priority, rather than upping the pitch.

Some more to this: 3 Million dollars is what was invested in it, they would have made 5.6 times more had the investors kept the money in bank. If the deals are of the same size with the same number of deals that happen then it would take them 68 years to just make enough money that was invested in them!

Why its unfair to always fall for people who are fair

Actually we have to see this issue in two different perspectives. White skin denotes beauty? Its quite natural among humans to seek or crave towards beauty. But the question is among white/black/brown skin which denotes beauty. It is the stereotype created by different mode of mediums that white skin is the only indicator of fairness. But the reality is looking beautiful is the combination of face structure, charmness and overall physique which would be complemented by skin complexion. All these factors together creates an attraction towards them. So only a fair skin will not help. Even this definition of beauty can be rooted out, if we start to argue whether beauty is measured based on looks or character or heart etc etc.


People with white skin are intelligent, rich, and superior than others? This is the most dangerous stereotype created among Indians which kept us as slave for more than a century. And the sad part is this mindset continues till today even within Indian people themselves. This attitude creates a sense of inferiority, fear, self doubt among dark skinned people. Another worst part is dark skinned people are treated in society with less respect in par with the white skinned people. The myth that white skinned people are educated, rich, dignified, loyal etc should be broken among Indian people. Intensive awareness should be created among people to respect and admire others only based on character, knowledge, good deeds, talent or at least in terms of humanity.

AMA with Meera Sanyal on Demonitization of Currency

Considering that demonetization was meant to target the black money hoarders, the rich, money muscled people, overtime the public opinion has been shifted towards more focus on the hardships faced by the poor and the what the mango people have to face.

Are we intentionally hiding the impact on the target black money hoarders through our several media to prove the initiative disastrous?
