PM Modi slams cow vigilantes again, says attack me if you want but not Dalits. It is ultimately vote bank politics that works like a kick where it hurts. But will it last?

And will the genie that has been unleashed by the VHP, RSS & the BJP fringe - of violence, utter disregard of the law and divisiveness accept returning to its bottle? I think not... Mere words do not work. Action backed with integrity is required.

China is proud of conversing in its mother tongue whereas we feel uneducated while conversing in Hindi. However can we compare ourselves to China?

As per the 2001 census, around 42.2 crore people listed Hindi as their mother tongue, of which 25.79 crore spoke Hindi in its pure form, and another 16.41 crore in 49 mother tongues similar to Hindi. Overall, around 41.03% of the population declared Hindi or its sub-groupings as its mother tongue. As for other scheduled languages, Bengali was the most spoken mother-tongue after Hindi (with 8.11% of the country's population citing it as their mother tongue), followed by Telugu (7.19%), Marathi (6.99%), Tamil (5.91%) and Urdu (5.01%).

We still have not overcome the effect of 2008 recession on our wages

Incomes from wages and capital were flat or fell for two-thirds of households in 25 advanced economies between 2005 and 2014—an explosive increase from less than 2 percent in the previous decade. While it’s broadly assumed that children will grow up to be better off than their parents, the reality is that a new generation of young people in advanced economies risks ending up poorer. In this episode of the McKinsey Podcast, McKinsey senior partner Richard Dobbs and McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) partner Anu Madgavkar talk with Peter Gumbel about the increase in the number of households that experienced flat or falling incomes in the past decade—and the implications for future growth and economic advancement.

Every National Media ensures manipulation of the news for its own propaganda. It’s vital to look at all media, including the UK’s, with a critical eye

When it comes to politics and media, the left argues that the right is more biased than the left while the right argues that the left is more biased than the right. Who’s right?In an age when thinktanks and “public relations” experts dominate media output, it might also be time to engage academics more fully as sources of (relatively) independent comment and analysis. These steps might strike many as all too demanding and time consuming, but we live in demanding times and the stakes are getting higher every year. The need for the public to become informed and defend itself against manipulation is greater than ever.

Google's applications still take manual decisions.We are not ready for AI decisions

Google Now cannot scale to the whole internet. It can do a lot, and certainly enough to be a great product, but it can't do everything, not until we have 'true' HAL 9000-style AI, which is a long way off. Contrast this with Google Maps, which is also partly a manual product. Hundreds or thousands of people drive Streetview cars down roads and hundreds or thousands of people check the images and edit the maps. There's lots of machine vision too, as well (and crowd-sourcing), but the back-stop is lots of paid employees. The algorithms alone aren't good enough yet. Editing the internet by hand was just too big, but editing maps isn't - it's just very expensive. Google is willing to spend that (and Apple is going to try too).

If India has to go for a two fronts war against China and Pakistan

Vice chief of the Indian Air Force air marshal BS Dhanoa declared that India will not be able to fight a two-front war involving Pakistan and China. The IAF's numerical strength is at an all-time low, and the air marshal said that "our numbers are not adequate to fully execute an air campaign in a two front scenario". Is it possible that any country which possesses nuclear weapons will risk fighting an all-out war with another, leave alone two of them? The chances are remote.
