I Get Mail – Sex for the Gods

This was watched and reviewed at the Bengaluru/Bangalore Meeting of Freethinkers and it got me thinking and one of it’s members asked me if I could have look at it. It’s about the Devdasi or the sacred prostitutes of India. I am not against it, it’s not incorrect but it has a few misconceptions that …

Thieves of Potential

Let’s call him V. V is 12 years old and came to see me today. And V is a classic example of “chronic starvation“. V’s got two sisters and a brother who are at school. They will be coming in tomorrow for an assessment too. V’s so chronically starved that he is 20% of the …

A Voice for Me: No, You Cannot Steal A Voice

As you may recall, I was “bloody pissed off” about the Steubenville Rape story but didn’t weigh in. I didn’t know enough about American Jock culture apart from cursory immersion within it due to contact with Americans and through the media. However the post by Judgy Bitch kind of forced me to speak due to …

A Voice for Me: Not You Too India!

In the light of the Delhi rapes you may have noticed a couple of the MRA websites have rushed to defend the “so called Rights” of men in India. I does need to be repeated. Anyone who has read my blog is aware of the various “major” rapes that grip the news headlines out here. …

Greatest Show on Earth – Kumbh Mela

If you hadn’t already heard, I was at the Kumbh Mela for 3 days. What is the Kumbh Mela? It’s arguably the biggest religious event in the Hindu calendar occurring every 12 years and it’s a ridiculously oversized event. This year 30 million people converged on the town of Allahabad. I was planning to cut …

Trashy, Glamorous and Insightful – Shobha De

She was (in)famous for writing proper trashy romance lit and pseudo-erotica. Less 50 Shades of grey and more throbbing manhoods… But there was one thing I loved Shoba De for growing up (despite not having read her books) was how much scandal she caused. And let us be honest here. Her books were terrible. But …

Not the Ducks! – India.com and Cancer Quackery

There exists a massive problem in India and that is the notion of western medicine. There is medicine and there is quackery. Vaccination is an eastern form of medicine but it is still used because it works. Medicine is EVERYTHING that works and is proven to work scientifically. Everything that doesn’t work is quackery. Flogging …

Age of Kali – Form III

Okay, a nerd reference to Star Wars but for those who don’t wish to be embedded into a massive chunk of Star Wars lore, Form III is a defensive style of fighting with a lightsaber said to make you nearly impossible to hit. An elegant defence in a less civilised age. If you haven’t already …

Dick Move Pakistan… Dick Move…

Yesterday marked a sad day in the India-Pakistan relationship. Pakistani soldiers crossed the border and staged an ambush on Indian troops killing 8. It is believed that it was a revenge attack for an exchange of fire that killed 1 person last week. Similarities to the Kargil War abound and India is for want of …

And India Cried

Shops are Shuttered

“It’s because India is crying.” – A Random Protester I was supposed to go down to two different protests, one a general one and the other a more quiet affair, the turn outs were low for two reasons. The weather was frankly atrocious making movement hard and people less likely to want to protest and …
