Born as an Indian, turned into Bhartiya (If you know what it means.) Against Political correctness and Politics. I support Uniform Civil Code and Gender neutral laws. I don't understand the purpose of feminism and ultra-left ideology that is being pushed on everyone. Freedom of speech is a right and should be used in right way. My articles etc are "My" opinions.

So as you may have guessed by looking at the header that it looks like an odd mix, it is since following is result of “brainstorming” during lock down coupled with work from home situation. The Twitter feed was abuzz with #trueindologyforCorrectHistory and #trueindologyforNCERT, it is about a “boring” subject that I care about. Much has already been discussed about the alteration of Indian history on debates both on Social Media platforms and Cable News. I am not going to say to remove what is in the books now since that will leave people with history as their qualifications redundant, we need everything that was either buried and removed or portrayed as grand lies about Bharat to be documented and it has to be done ASAP.

The country was hit by an epidemic about a century ago and killed a chunk of Bombay’s population however our textbooks just give fleeting reference to this disaster and the teachers just tell you what is written in the Government sanctioned Textbooks. This new age however has presented an Opportunity to document what is happening around us and make sure that the facts are not only documented but also added in the textbooks across the boards at school and university level. This will be good time to have the country ready to restructure the health services, this can be a good driving tool for recruiting bright minds who can reshape the health infra of the nation for better system.

In the present times Covid-19 is spreading as is evident by the increasing numbers. The problem we face is not the numbers of deaths but the alarming rate of infection. The lock down was supposed to put brake on this disease when it was wreaking havoc in the West, it helped however the infections have been rampant since states relaxed the lock down. This is important to talk about since the Government cannot have everyone locked in and wait for the pandemic to blow over, the responsibility of stopping this merchant of death now lies with population of this country (just like every other responsibility). I can only talk about what I see in my locality, the shops are open, there are people on roads with Masks on but social distancing is being ignored for most part. The people will have to understand that the responsibility of saving our lives lies with us, because once dead we will only be a data-point in some statistics.

iLL-Liberals

The story of Indian ‘liberals’ has mostly been one of loud words and selective actions to suit their own narrative. They act as self-appointed messiahs but have themselves become the type of dogmatic cult that they professed they wanted to fight against. It’s apt that we titled this article “ill liberals” because they have clearly been ill for a long time, suffering from the megalomaniacal belief that they are the sole custodian of truth and the gatekeepers of morality and justice stifling every opposing view.
