Updates

In the last lockdown, I caught up with a lot of internet clutter owing to a few influence circles that had a visible effect on my mental state. Things that helped me so far in recovering from neuroticism: Little more privacy. Making most of my personal life away from social media stories. It indeed sweetened…

State taming Religionists

Back in 2008, an interesting trend commenced in India. A state leader for the first time in India summoned the demolition of temples in a Hindu majority state and still remained undefeated in state politics. Leaders made the mass believe that their intention in doing so is different from the Islamic iconoclasts they encountered in…

My ideal woman goals

Greetings of Women’s Day to all the pretty ladies reading me! First of all, I want to say I don’t like to name myself feminist since I have basic differences in contemporary feminist waves that denies the absolute biological differences in both the sexes, just submit to be exploited by capitalist gender essentialism, derogatorily replaces…

Age of Discord: Neo-Malthusianist rhetoric of the overproduced pseudo-elites

In the year 2018, 3700 PhD and 28,000 post-graduate degree holders only in one state of India applied for grade D job that requires minimum eligibility of Class V. In another state Maharashtra, Mphil and postgraduates applied for menial jobs alongside school dropouts in 2016. On other hand, a cut-throat contest for high-end civil services…

Historical Negationism and Sanitized Image of Ashoka and Buddhism in India

Divyavandana is the earliest source from which Indian neo-Buddhists claim massive prosecution of Buddhist monks by a king identified as Pushyamitra belonging to Brahmin lineage who usurped the last Emperor of Chandragupta’s Maurya dynasty. Later exaggerated narrations of our time assert Hindus went on some kind of killing rampage that wiped out Buddhism from the…

Threshold of Expertise

I love to learn two sides of the coin. What if my opinion is wrong? How much I have grasp over the subject? Out of many labels, Political Left and Right are kicking around everywhere on the internet, with more and more radicalization, even in everyday life. Very interestingly I observe people who identify themselves with a…

A Vanishing Heritage: Prehistoric rock shelter at Naraj

Cave arts and old inscriptions are fascinating. Makes us wonder what will people of the future think about the graffiti we leave behind. We don’t know whether these were graphic communication among themselves or the inclination to conserve beyond a single moment in time, it’s certain humans have always had an innate drive towards art….

Battle of Lakhnauti: A Beginning of Dharmic Reconquest

Back in the eleventh century, a just-born desert cult with world domination as core religious obligation rushed towards a vibrant polytheistic land annihilating the once-thriving Buddhist and Zoroastrian centers along the Silk Road. Now the tussle was not between that cult named Islam and the existing indigenous inhabitants, but between the narrow-minded exclusivism and the…

Kshatriya dominance in Nāstika Sects

There’s a popular misconception that “Buddhism is an anti-caste religion” persists among Neo-Buddhists in India who consider themselves of a modern sect Bhimyana that even rejects the petty concepts of Buddha’s teachings like four noble truths for their own timid interest. On the other hand, the Buddhists on foreign lands who have devotedly studied their…

The Founding Father of the Indian Constitution

In the year 1947, Indian got its political freedom yet the Nehruvian consensus kept the colonial state machinery they inherited from British raj intact for its convenience in course of seven decades. The country’s education system was handed over to colonizers and thereafter to their Marxist slaves who poison young minds even today. This neo-colonial…
