PASSED EXAMS! But have no booze to celebrate. And er… no money in hand since I spent it all on new books yesterday. I should have a “Party Fund” for celebrating such events. Oh and I got my AC Fixed. And my net is relatively stable and not fluctuating like it has for the past …

So Sorry

I have been made aware that both me and Taslima have both been doing something wrong. You see, when we spoke out against rape and when I covered the ways that Indian culture failed with regards to rape I made a horrible mistake. I forgot to delineate between the men who rape and the men …
