@SavitriEraParty @Ozymandias1993 It's unlikely that by disabling 95 % of the population, the Markets will ever be efficient.

@rajivchandran @SavitriEraParty @Ozymandias1993 This is whole project of Orientalism (which continues to this day).
@Ozymandias1993 @SavitriEraParty If *you* want to mine for Iron in a Gold field, that's *not* the "Market", that's *your* stupidity.

@sgpriolkar @maidros78 @sarkar_swati @SavitriEraParty Yes, we can achieve a monopoly over call centers and BPOs at this rate. Well done!

@SavitriEraParty @Ozymandias1993 Not if a feudalistic state puts it in a straight-jacket (which is what yours does).
@Ozymandias1993 @rajivchandran @SavitriEraParty Markets are too "greedy" to ever be optimal in the long run (which is what legislation should achieve).
@SavitriEraParty @srin151a It almost sounds like Sri Mohapatra is talking about God. ☺️
@srin151a Sri @SavitriEraParty assumes that the market will fix all without accounting 4 subpar signalling sans perfect info. @sarkar_swati
@srin151a What he means is that the deracinated elite will choose for us - and he'll love their choice. @SavitriEraParty @sarkar_swati
@srin151a They'll choose to ditch Indian languages because, well they don't know any better. @SavitriEraParty @sarkar_swati
@srin151a And we faithful subjects will go along with that choice because...The Market! @SavitriEraParty @sarkar_swati
@a_r_j_u_n For all the pontification about choice, he seems to selectively favour top-down impositions. @SavitriEraParty @TejasOmkara
@a_r_j_u_n Here's news, @SavitriEraParty, your democratic market would never have passed the Indian Constitution. @TejasOmkara
@SavitriEraParty I see. So India is a factory of workers-to-be-exported-to-the-West, is it? That's its raison d'être?
@SavitriEraParty Hmm. So if the market tomorrow says, ditch all Indian languages, that's exactly what we should do?
@Ozymandias1993 @SavitriEraParty @srin151a Market forces favoring English is a myth. #EnglishApartheid enforced by Govt. Courts, Higher-Ed.
@sankrant @Ozymandias1993 @SavitriEraParty @srin151a exactly. Imperialism/monopoly of english invisible to intelligentsia. Willful deceit?
@SavitriEraParty @Ozymandias1993 English speakers willfully oblivious to apartheid it perpetuates but gleefully project same on sanskrit.

@srin151a @Ozymandias1993 @sgpriolkar @SavitriEraParty So no one would be able to read Aurobindo in the language he wrote :)
