Surname: A symbol of caste tyranny.
You blame the politicians, I blame you; each and every one of you who carries that surname which screams your caste. You want change, then then don't give your next generation that stinking identity that stinks with centuries of tyranny and hate.

Nietzsche on Uniqueness

AAP's election results
So thrilled by AAP's mind blowing performance and the comeback of Arvind Kejriwal. Although I believed Kiran Bedi would have been a better more decisive and action oriented Chief Minister of Delhi, but it seems ground reality was quiet different and probabl...

Islamic societies need a middle class that has an incentive for education
Islamic societies need a critical mass of middle class, that relies on education for its progress. The rich oil sheikhs and the poor masses, make a dangerous concoction, that only impedes progress of the Islamic societies, both economically, socially and cu...

Land Acquisition Act
Thank you, Indian government, for passing the urgent ordinance that allows you to grab our lands without our consent for national development. That is indeed the true spirit of free market, forced acquisition of private property. Ordinary Indians are ignora...
