Though it is dubbed ‘love jihad’ law, it is actually anti-conversion law. Started reading about it, trying to make sense of this law.

The above article gives a good timeline on anti-conversion laws in India.

The Freedom of Religion Bill was introduced in Parliament in 1979. It sought “official curbs on inter-religious conversion.” These bills were also not passed by Parliament due to a lack of political support.

In 2015, the Union law ministry had given the opinion that a law against forced and fraudulent conversions could not be created at a national level, since law-and-order is a State subject…

Independence day 2020. As is the case for the past few years, WhatsApp groups got all patriotic. Lots of gif images, songs, short video clips etc. Got to see this video from 2016 about the history of Kashmir —

So, went looking to see what the internet has about the history of Kashmir. Much of what the speaker says is there. I’m adding the timelines and my inferences in this post.

1148–49 AD — Kalhana writes Rajatarangini (River of Kings), a history of Kashmir that has 8,000 verses in Sanskrit. He refers to Nilamata Purana, which is dated to…

With online classes for both the kids happening now, we badly needed a home PC. Instead of ordering a desktop or a laptop online, thought of building (assembling) one ourselves.

Components: Motherboard, processor (with cooling fan), RAM, SSD and/or HDD, cabinet, SMPS, monitor, keyboard and mouse, UPS.

Websites (in India): amazon, kharidiye, mdcomputers, vedantcomputers, techmartunbox.

Processor: I’m not sure if there are any other commonly used processors, but Intel and AMD are the ones we had to choose from. We went with AMD. The processor we got was AMD Athlon 3000G with integrated Radeon Vega 3 graphics. This meant we…

The story is still unfolding, after the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of allowing women from the age of 10 to 50 into the temple. As is the case with anything in social media, it’s hotly contested whether the judgement is right or wrong. Various conspiracy theories are put forth about who is behind all this, and is responsible for this judgement (the usual suspects — the Church, the Communists).

What the social media, and the mainstream media to some extent hasn’t done is to read through the judgement, see what it says and then argue their case further…

There was this article recently which said demonetisation was a complete 100% failure —

And there is a retaliatory message in WhatsApp doing the rounds the past two days which goes like this:

The Government of India decided to cancel the Legal Tender Status of Rs.1000 and Rs.500 denomination currency notes on 8th November 2016 with several objectives: (i) flushing out Black Money, (ii) eliminate Fake Indian Currency Notes (FICN), (iii) to strike at the root of financing of terrorism and left wing extremism, (iv) to convert non-formal economy into a Formal Economy to expand Tax Base and employment…
