Couple of (unrelated) points I have to bring out:

1) Stop thinking loud, just stop.
2) What is love-cum-arranged marriage? A marriage can either be love or arranged (period).
3) Hille Re is NOT a dance number. Don't shake your ass to any and everything you can.

I haven't seen many fine Mathematicians become journalists. But then I do not expect the latter to integrate 4th order equations, I just hope that they look a little more closely at what they publish- maybe plug-in a few numbers here and there.


Refer the post in TOI.

Amongst the first things I noticed about this post is that it relies heavily on statistics and numbers. This strengthes my case all the more.


-----
Surely, India's whopping population does not suggest that ours is a sexually abstinent country.
-----

Population has a lot to do with sex. To increase population people need to have sex.
But the question here is that how much does sex have to do with population. Lets look at some numbers here:
Lets say the population of the country in generation x is 200 Mn
Now for the population to become 1 Billion in the x+1th generation each person needs to have 5 kids. i.e. each couple has 10 children.
(Note that a population increase of 5 times in 1 generation is a very steep increase)

Now 10 children is NOT a lot of sex. Statistically, the chance of conceiving in any random intercourse is 18%. Which means every 5.5 intercourses produces 1 kid.

Therefore to get 10 kids per couple all we need is 55 intercourses during the lifetime. Now that is really not very a pretty number considering by global standards having sex 3-4 times a week is very normal.

The point here is not Indian do not have sex. The point is that we are not really a society of hypocrites. The exact same line of reasoning that I debunked is used very frequently even by the, so called, renowned people on shows like "we are the people" too.

More on the same article a little later.

RTC:Under The Table And Dreaming Couple of things I need to point out. First,I think it is a good thing that the owners of the tea-stall had put their on the seat rather than the ground where the boy was eating. Second, I do not think it is fair to assume that the owners did not put their feet on the ground because a Dalit was sitting there. It is quite possible that they did not want to step in the boy's food therefore they chose to keep their feet on the seat inspite of it being uncomfortable. OR for all you know they were doing the classical Indian palti.A lot of Indians sit in the 'palti' position while eating their meals no matter how uncomfortable it is. Going by the looks of the picture they tea stall owners look below middle class and somewhat rural- The 'palti' thus gains weight. Having said that I need to point that I do find this picture quite discomforting and have very little respect for the 2 men on the table for treating the little kid they way they are. P.S:- I intend to put this mail and your reply(if any) on my Blog. Let me know if you are not OK with that. Blogva ki Jai Ho!! Blogger Bhaiyya

Well that’s not what the campaign is actually called. However, that is what is getting the campaign all the attention.

 

Preface:

  1. Facebook link
  2. Blank noise
  3. Rediff intv -Can locate this.. will update soon( this is the intv of the person behind the campaign)

 

Brief:

  1. The plan is to send loads of pink colored chaddi’s to Ram Sena on Valentines day.
  2. Step out and drink on Valentine’s day

 

I have a few issues with the idea:

Firstly, the plan urges us to send them underwears. Underwears, mind you, not jeans, not kurtas. Evidently, this is done with the intention of embarrassing the RS. I don’t see how embarrassing it would do us any good. If nothing else, it might just enrage the Ram Seniks all the more. It might also give them another reason to justify their actions-agar baaki log humare saath gand macha rahe hain to hum badla hi le rahe hain.

It is almost instinctive for us to support anyone who opposes anything we oppose. Its like negative of negative is positive (ala dushman ka dushamn, dost). What we tend to forget is that opposing a wrong action with another incorrect one is not right.

 

Second, why should any one of us care about the Ram Sena. Why should I do what it wants me to do or what it doesn’t want me to do? Should I rather have a mind of my own and continue with my own plans.

This plan, of doing the opposite of what the Ram Sena wants me to do, gets Ram Sena popularity. In all probability this is what it is looking for in the first place. For all you know Ram Seniks are doing this hoping for some media primetime which could help RS gain momentum for the forthcoming elections.

 

Another little thing that I don’t understand is why people compare PC to Gandhigiri.

Pink Chaddi is NOT Gandhigiri.

Gandhigiri requires the victim to be polite to the aggressor such that the aggressor realizes his mistake. PC is an attempt to humiliate the Ram Sena.

Anyways, just because something does not fall under Gandhigiri does not prove that it is wrong. I mean if u believe in PC, just do it.

 

P.S:-

Since I have no better ideas to stop the Ram Sena I request all of you to visit the website and if the plan goes well with your ideology, go on send the pink Chaddis.
