In recent times,the fundamentalist activities in India,under the cover of the gradually rising saffron wave of Hindu nationalism has been rising all over the country.Beginning from "disappearances" of students belonging to minority communities to the banning of production and enterprise of beef,the legalization of marital rape and demonetisation,the entire land is in turmoil.We want to internationally connect to all authors who can come up and spread this message as far and wide as possible.It's…

Two weeks back,I posted a photograph relating to 'Schindler's List' and the Second World War,subsequently after which I noticed a comment from the adjunct professor of World Religions at MDC on the post! I had gone through the profile before and it seemed very logical to request an article at that point.I am so glad I received this today and am really,really grateful to Professor Goethe for handing this to me. The article is wonderful,intellectually enriched and rebellious enough to knock on the…

I had been reading an article at Drishti yesterday,which was all about the history and acceptance of Lipstick.This was just the spark I had been searching for over so many days.It is not that this inspired me to make this post but definitely got me moving over doing this post which I had in mind for a very,very long time.I was just not getting how to start over because when I start thinking about anything connected to gender equality or feminism,it feels like so enormous a topic,I never seem…

I received an e-mail from War on Want today and just when I read 'Greece',thoughts about economy,austerity,World Bank,IMF and inhumanity sprang up at once in my mind.Greece is being subjected to an enormous amount of debt that is next to impossible to be paid.The constant involvement and pressurisation from IMF is driving the country to adopt to austerity,not to mention the terrible impacts this is creating,including rising costs of education for students and dismissal of even health services for…

Post written as a tribute to Late Abhijit Roy and Late Washiqur Rahman,both of whom where atheist bloggers. And the list continues! If fundamentalists are to be blamed,even more intensely should they be blamed who supply them with ammunition.So,if ISIS/ISIL is to be blamed,none the less will the state authority of USA have to accept the blame because they supply these groups of psychopathic haters with enough ammunition to retain their hellish activities,everyday. There is a lot more to this world…

I will start by mentioning a quotation by the eminent linguist and MIT Scholar Noam Chomsky -  “The general population doesn't even know what's happening, and it doesn't even know that it doesn't know.” Be it religious scepticism,scientific scepticism or political scepticism,questioning the authority is a necessary element.Since I am one of those who might be challenged the question,"Then why don't you go question about Marxism and your old,weary manifesto?"  This would be…

The economical explanation and introduction is the part explained by me.The data sources have been mentioned and the actual part of the post,the ideas to stimulate the movement have been originally written by Fred Curran.You can check his profile here. Let us begin directly with a chart showing the Economic Disparity in United States of America. This chart shows the Annual Income of the richest 1% of the United States.Look at the three years mentioned and share percentage.It is just 0.4% less than…

These days,there is a lot of talk almost everywhere on this topic - Feminism.But before I get into the main content of the post,let me talk about a misconception that seems to sustain itself at the utter disgust of people who know even a bit of Social Sciences.The irony lies here - I have seen 'beauty bloggers' speak about Feminism! Most of the times what they are speaking about is actually feminine attributes.Most of the times I see them slow poisoning the minds of young girls and women about how…

Let me tell you a few things before I get to the main content of this post.I am not into defending my own ideals by making rubbish acclaims towards others,something that we always have to face from the other inhuman,mean group of exploiters,who forget the basic human traits while speaking to someone who does not have faith in their ideals (if they have any,after all.)"Communists are perverts." "Communists are stupid.Communists are this and Communists are that." "Socialists are criminals." "Liberals…
