Farming, Why the interest?


As I've explained in this post. Farming has high reverence among Indians. Farmers are portrayed as martyrs who give their lives to save their nation. When examined closer into this context. It reveals a deep cognitive decision by the nascent Indian Government of 1950s. The scenery in India when the British left us, wasn't exactly... Continue Reading →

FARMING: The untold truths


Ever since my childhood days, I was repeatedly and irrevocably taught that "Farming is the Backbone of India" and I've never questioned it. It seemed obvious, everybody needs food ergo nation needs farmers. But lately, I've been pouring myself over with how the public perception of things is egregiously erroneous in a plethora of ways.... Continue Reading →

The most knowledgeable person in the room, staying silent in an argument and the dumb ones making a lot of noise with complete confidence. I used to be... Continue Reading →

So generally my head is filled with stupid instances when I heard or read them.  For example, Robert Downey Jr. says "It's so overt that it's covert."... Continue Reading →

That it is full of naive people with clear, untainted minds. Villages are actually filled with narrow-minded, parochial people, completely oblivious to the wider world... Continue Reading →

Villages


I often notice that, whenever I first say to my friends that I am from a village, they tend to imagine a neat row of huts near a mountain with the faintly peeking out warm sun and birds and farmlands.
