Hi All, I would like to share with you a very thought provoking interview with Judea Pearl, winner of Turing award for the invention of Bayesian networks:

Feelings of sweet revenge after so many decades! However, no need to fall in the trap of anti-Modi rhetoric of Congress and the Left. Each party is infested by the fascist virus and hence Modi must be examined with much care as his four years' record has been of such moderation. https://t.co/U2ggBKAee3
In 1974 congress put 14 CPM MLAs in jail under MISA to escape no trust motion. In Odisha through late B.D. Jatti as governor didn't allow majority party (Pragati dal) to form govt. The state was put under President rule. There are many instances. BJP now double Congress.
Why a pragmatic approach to policy-making works for the Modi government.
Funnily, this same missing cookie-cutter template has also worried his ardent supporters, especially those who use economics as the pivot to label themselves right wing. Due to this perceived lack of accepted and acceptable wisdom in Modi’s approach, many commentators have labeled the government as unhinged, multi-threaded, un-cohesive and arbitrary. In fact, five distinct themes characterise the Modi government's policy-making.

Man Bhadraloks ideal came from Victorian England. You think it had to something to do with you? They petitioned and got 'Gajon' banned. 'Kobir Gan' got lost due to negligence. Same treatment was given to traditional folk bengali cultures.
Also, they were the one who started 'Swadeshi' and militant nationalism in Bengal. I never denied that a part supported British. OTOH Vivekananda, Aurobindo, CRD, SCB, JCB, SPM all came from Bhadraloks community. I won't call that minimal effect.

liberal feminists who are saying that hinduism hates the vagina or even its mention,should really read up a bit of tantric theory :) the GauriPatta around ShivaLingam is symbolic representation of the Vagina.Though the inner meaning is of another level,which feminists wont grasp
Mark my words today,the fall of indic civilization in this modern age will happen exactly with this ultrafocus on religion, ie, hindutva vs islamism.Most likely, if Hindutva Vad is given a free hand, it will turn our nation into a Srilanka, Africa or Myanmar.
As Modi's grip on power loosens, he will get even more peevish and more brazen. That's what all autocrats do. Brace yourselves #ValaMurdersDemocracy
Absolute violation of precendence and parliamentary rules by @BJP4India No wonder politicians are always questioned on propriety. They’re incapable of being partisan and fair. There’s need for urgent reforms on selection of governors ans speakers. @rashtrapatibhvn https://t.co/AJ6RExpwyh

From infinitesimally small numbers to gauge fractions of time to cosmic level formulations in order to count galaxies, Indian mathematicians were conceiving of numbers that no other civilization came close to. https://t.co/CvKZh0Rjcp
Dumocracy is the biggest fad that have been pulled by some "intellectuals" controlling the narrative at that time. Democracy is, was, will never be absolute. Every single powerful person with money, muscle or brain will use it for his advantage & noone cares for democracy.

The BJP has spent a lot of time attacking Nehru. Maybe time the Congress did too for retaining the Raj's undemocratic centralisation, which has bambooed it in Karnataka today? #Governor
