Some tweets of mine today:
Due to Corona, people have been without jobs, and, as such, without much cash. We shall not discuss here that people have not bothered to Save. I estimate that about 40% of Tamilians have the philosophy of: Earn it, Spend it. It burns holes in their pockets to Save.
The ‘gorement’ of India had very kindly ‘ordered’ that employers should pay their employees their salaries in advance, as advance. Too many employers claim that they have done so.
Now, to get businesses going, the owners have to get workers to come, announcing in advance that the workers will not receive salaries for an unspecified amount of time. We can understand this as the products they have generated have not been sold off.
They expect the ‘gorement’ to bail out cash to get them going. Which same, on the one hand having given out some help ‘packages,’ – and eaten up fat commissions for same, no doubt,
– says, (without saying it aloud), that it too is short of money. Above: People waiting for a gorement prepared meal, which it calls: Over-prepared.
That the central gorement of India has collected unspecified Millions in an account called the ‘pm cares fund,’ has already helped out its cronies, who had showed it the thumb and had even given up Indian citizenship in the process, to the tune of 68,000 Crores. Rupees, of course, and one crore is ten million.
The miserable workers, who are cheated left and right with regard to their salaries, and have to pay their rents in advance, as I suppose is common the world over, decided to go back home, thus the infamous Migrants of India. …Very kindly, all of 0 rupees of the ‘pm cares fund’ have been spent in getting these Migrants home by the gorement.
Above, a young woman with a babe in arms decides to walk more than 1200 kms.
A close up.
The central gorement has not seen fit to give the state their share of the taxes. To allay their baying, it has allowed the states to reopen the liquor shops, which bring in no mean money.
And herein starts the tale of Accidents.
I have been taking Walks in the evening. Since the liquor shops opened, Three, not one, not two, but Three bikers nearly dashed onto me.
And that means YOU!

And this from Facebook. Not mine.
My Own Country; and it pains me to call it that. But Needs Must.
All this does not Bother Too many people.
As in pointing out Where We Have to Change, In all this I blame Ourselves, The Citizens, First. Lewd Pictures, Posters, Advertisements, Songs and Movies, are Accepted by Us; We do not Protest against them… Not at Home, Nor in Our Conversations and Writings. Not Enough. Let Not The Crusaders get hot over this.
It falls upon Religious Leaders to Inculcate Right Values; and tell me the last time You found them doing that; Powerfully, Incessantly, as Christ would have done. The Precise Reason I Keep Castigating Our Dear, Good Pope.
As things Stand, where We expect Sense, Decency and Direction in the ‘leaders’ of the Civil world, We find a Lot of Blah, Empty Words, which I find a Mockery.
Some Ten days ago, a Young Woman was Gang-Raped, Set on Fire and Killed. https://economictimes.indiatimes.com/news/politics-and-nation/all-4-accused-in-hyderabad-gang-rape-murder-shot-dead/articleshow/72393178.cms
As the link shows, All four Accused were Apprehended, and after a Furore from the Public, killed by the the police in what they called an ‘Encounter,’ in India coming to mean ‘Allowing’ Accused to Run, and then Shoot and Kill them. Here is what I had written about that:
1. Have No sympathy for the Accused. Suggest they should have been burnt.
2. But Sentence Should have come from #courts. There are Too many Loopholes in the #encounter.
3. Physically, to say All Four were killed is Brainlessness. At 3 o’clock at night, All Four are Shot, no one in the Arms or the Shoulders, but Mortal wounds, …and None of them had Surrendered?
4. #police had #KILLED at orders of #politicos, pure and simple.
5. #encounter Further proves Absolute Uselessness of Indian #courts, who just examine papers, and are NOT delivering #justice in any way.
6. #police totally happy to carry out orders of #politicalmasters.
7. End Result: NO Morals.
Accused Needed MOST severe punishment. But #police story HUMBUG. And police are #KILLERS.
Many Spoke up Against this ‘encounter.’
The Chief judge of India bleated that ‘Instant’ justice is Revenge. …I have Issues on his use of the word ‘instant.’ And this is what I wrote:
1. Chief JUDGE of India, the #cji, ( let’s STOP calling these fellows ‘justice,’ ) said Instance justice is Revenge.
Going on a Side note, he is merely playing with Words. What We want is SPEEDY JUSTICE. When they cannot provide that, let the #judiciary resign and Sell Pakoras.
[ On Pakoras, the prime minister of India, I think, had said at one time that it is Impossible to provide jobs for Everyone, – which is Very True, of course, but the statement carried a Levity about it, going on further to say that people can sell Pakoras, a kind of Indian Street food, mostly made of Gram flour over Onions, fried. ]
Politicians, generally the Most Blase of the lot, have been speaking up; again generally ‘merely’ criticising the ‘ruling’ party.
One Akhilesh Yadav was quite vociferous. On him:
2. #akhilesh is raising his own Drama. It was in ‘his’ time that Two Minor Girls were Burnt and Hung on a tree at Badauni UP, in May 2014, pic attached. …And it was ‘his’ father who had said: #BoysWillBeBoys.
And concluding, the #police are Really working Hard to Prove themselves the Dogs to the Pigs of Animal Farm.
3. #police [ Small case as a mark of Disrespect ], who have been called ‘gorement’ – my own spelling for that, – Gundas, are proving that name Right. #police are Proving they are the #Dogs of the #AnimalFarm. …All this on #Unnao.
I am an Ill informed Lout. So people can Enlighten me whether these sorts of – people, particularly Women, getting targeted, – happens in other parts of the world.
This video is from Haryana in India. The women of the ‘Valmiki’ community, a supposedly ‘low’ one, are being beaten up by men of a supposedly higher caste. Many of the women’s breasts were blue with/by the beatings, it is reported.
An old man seems to be getting beaten up, and the words, ‘he can be a witness’ is something I seem to recognize. [ It is in Haryanavi, somewhat different from Hindi ].
Add to the above list my Esteemed Brothers and Sisters of #SilentHinduMajority, the #ChristianCommunity, etc.

EXCELLENT Reading for the Season. Shared this on Twitter with the words: ‘Best Christmas Read.’
Serious (Yet Happy) man that I am, I sort of Needed this. What a Beautiful story!
SIGNIFICANT words, in the order of their occurrence:
God knew the bigger plan… Loving someone is the biggest risk in life… when the tears fall, my precious, I will catch every one.
The Story, and the Author, have me literally in Tears. …A Beautiful story of Love, of Christmas.
Avni, Dear Friends, is the unfortunate Tigress who had had to seek out her own territory for herself and her two cubs, Ousted due to overpopulation in the sanctuary in Maharashtra of India.
Pushed out to the fringe, near Human inhabitations, she had become a Confirmed Man eater, having devoured no less than 13 or 14 People.
Here is one photograph from a Google search for Avni:
Sorry, her photo / selfie of her eating Humans not available.
Avni was shot and killed after protests and demands from the Locals.
Avni (death) Protesters say that she had been killed without being Anaesthetised! So the man who was charged with this unpleasant business is supposed to have shot her First with a Dart gun, – Never mind that these are used at the Closest of Distances, their Range being that, and then deliver the Killing Shot, Face to Face, as it were, – again Never mind that the Administration (govt) itself had Okayed the killing.
As of the moment, Avni’s two cubs, about 11 months old now, had been orphaned. The Administration says that they have been located, (presumably) captured, and Rehabilitated. [ Please remember and Note that I believe about 0.1 % of what they Administration says. ]
As 11 month old Tiger cubs can’t fend for themselves, they can only be segregated, and fed my humans.
But No! Avni protesters, who look educated, and seem to know a lot of Big words, not to say some English,
(having roped in some 6 year olds, as well, and as usual, as below)
…Say that the Forest is the Natural Habitat of Tigers, and there the cubs should be! Once again Never mind that they don’t know how to Hunt; Nor that they themselves can become Easy Prey, and Worse, that they can Killed by Male Tigers, without their mother to defend them.
You will see that I have Already raised One question to the Avni Protesters, namely, Just What do they think of their asking for the Cubs to be sent to the Jungle. Avni Protesters are So Ill Informed, that they do not know letting 11 month old tiger cubs loose in the Jungle means Passing a Death Sentence on them, as shown above.
…My next point is: Just Where were these Brainy, Concerned People when:
Here are some pictures of the Protest about that Toxic Hell.
For Avni Protesors, these are Not Legitimate, or Worthwhile issues.
I even wonder who is funding them.
