BJP’s Rally against Price Rise Makes Dent – on Twitter!


Tweaked from #PriceRiseRally tweets: 1. Bhishma Pitamah at #PriceRiseRally: Khud ka pet nahin paal sakta, biwi-bachchon ka kya hoga! Main brahmacharya ki shapath leta hoon 2. Buffalo at #PriceRiseRally eats up dice thrown by Shakuni after wrongly hearing “chaar” as “chaara”. Denies its name is Lalu 3. Ms. Roy at #PriceRiseRally scratches private parts vigorously. […]

Hypothesis of God’s Existence is Inadmissible if God Behaves Randomly


Many people with who I interact online know know me to be atheist, but ironically, I have said very little about the basis of that atheism here. Atheism (lack of belief that God exists) depends on definition of (attributes assigned to) God. Deism & ‘Randomly behaving God’ are not falsifiable. But one of the prerequisites […]

Narendra Modi is Not Superman. Please!


He is at best an administrator significantly better than his peers. He may have shown promise, but let us not burden him with Superman(‘s)hood as that will only raise our expectations to such levels that they will be impossible for anyone to fulfill. What afflicts Modi is that he is not looked at as a […]

S.I.T. Back and Enjoy Pop-Corny NewsXXX


Indian English media gives new expansion to the acronym – S.I.T.: Sunday Inquisition and Torture Click, S.I.T. back and enjoy the Indian Mass Media in its naked glory – where fact and fiction blend seamlessly, as if made for each other, for the benefit of the voyeuristic viewer. “The purveyors of untruth failed even to […]

What I love about Ram Gopal Varma

Less people, less noise: Religion inspired Peace!


Numbers 31:17-18 (King James Version) 17. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 18. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Verify (click)

So many inconsistencies in news reporting of “two lady doctors killing a rape victim’s baby in Raigad”!


Previous post (click) had something related. There I had provided (the following) links, wherein two news agencies, viz., PTI and IANS (former published by DNA (click) and the latter by many publications, including The Times of India [click]) had reported the SAME incident, with conflicting versions. Also, considering the circumstances, and being a doctor, many […]

Fine balance between lack of creativity and its excess. [Highly allegorical post!!]


I had always felt that our education does not promote original thinking, which is very detrimental to nation’s progress, as without it research can never be carried out! A very simple reason so many students fail exams is because they copy their neighboring candidate’s answers verbatim. If teachers would only teach adequate language skills, then […]

iBubble. The Perfect Sphere. The Perfect Hollow.


Sometimes I understand others in terms of how they are similar to me. Other times I understand them in terms of how they are different from me. There is no other way to understand others. Comparisons are imminent. If I understand myself, still I might not understand someone else correctly, for some contamination of data […]
