Letter 11: August 15, is it really Independence Day for Hindus in India?

In this week’s deep dive, we examine if 15th of August is really a day deserving of being called the Independence day for Hindus living in India. To be able to answer that question, we need answer to another question. What did we gain independence from on 15th August 1947? The immediate response that comes to mind is, from the colonial rule of the British. An ability to make laws and rules for ourselves. An end to being treated as 2nd class people in our own country. So, the question really is, have Hindus in India experienced any of these in the last 74 years. Continue reading Letter 11: August 15, is it really Independence Day for Hindus in India?

In this vlog I examine this brewing game of thrones in Kerala politics. Continue reading Pinarayi 2.0 and A Game of Thrones in Kerala

Why the Big-Tech needs to be regulated

It is now more clear than ever before that the big tech companies have grown too big and too powerful and have started manipulating what we read, watch and how we think. They have also shown in no uncertain terms that they are willing to use their platforms, money and influence to further the agenda of the radical leftist ideology that has caused destruction of traditions, culture, families, social harmony, and economies everywhere in the world where it had come to dominate.

Some notes on Lok Sabha 2019 results in Kerala
