I see the intolerance as a product of scarce luxuries today. Like the tribe in ‘gods must be crazy’ and their coca cola bottle.

Since joining Twitter,”intellectual” has come to mean something superior, judgmental and polarized. A part of me mourns its sad demise 🙁

People are less indignant being deprived of necessities than they are when deprived of luxuries of convenience or recognition.

Coding the nth wordpress theme for my personal blog. At the end of the day, I give up for lack of time and start again in few months 😀

Don’t invest so much self worth in being right that you become a slave to your own words. The freedom to be wrong is the right of learning.

The Janlokpal movement is born in the increasing facilities of life making disparity more visible. People can see prosperity out of reach.

Citizens realize power as consumers of democracy and demand performance. Managing constitution to deliver needs is the job of the govt.

In the monsoon, the staircase to the sky is covered with a tarpaulin sheet, and the poor people underneath dry up.

In the monsoon, paper boats brave the tsunamis on flooded roads hoping against all odds in epic bravery. Sometimes it works too.

The rain crazed child wraps school bag in raincoat rather than dumping both. Would have been easier to explain both lost than how he is wet.

Vegetable vendor pushing cart loaded with vegetables making better business when people don’t want to get out in the wet. Flu bait wet he is

The hypothesis is that if you’re wet and grinning, you don’t fall ill. If you are wet and working, pneumonia at least.

That’s where they went! Not one cat or dog in sight here… torrents of water. RT @Joydas: Meow. Woof. Bark. Growl *Raining Cats and Dogs*

The unbearable fed upness of being. Ubuntu latest sucks big time on mobile networking. I wish I hadn’t upgraded

Main road in Vile Parle. I think this one captures the feel of the rain well. http://flic.kr/p/ah2QZZ

Nearly had heart failure when my site showed zero visitors. Then remembered, had upgraded theme and forgotten tracking code #facepalm

I got a toothache for days. Can’t escape dentist. I hate dentists most of all needle doctors. Every instinct I have tells me to run!
Vidyut

My TL is infested with doctors. All sorts. Hah. I’m not scared of doctors on Twitter :p RT @Doc_DrD: @Vidyut Betwn m a doc!!! now run.

Whether you like him or not, the fact remains that Anna Hazare has inspired India’s youth to wake up & make the coffee. Not just smell it.

A life spent in interviews on them RT @Raheelk: Can u imagine a grand child with Medha Patkar & Aruna Roy & Anna Hazare as its grandparents?

I used to visit neighbours more when my calls used to come on their landline or they came to watch TV at our place. Now we barely meet.

I know three (unrelated) people who have credit cards (add on) but no bank accounts. What is today’s youth coming to? And parents?

WTF ‘Most didnt know what LPBill is’. So what? Many didnt know what Gandhi’s salt satyagrah was. But they joined him regardless.

It is a most strange expectation that every citizen supporting something understands exactly what they are supporting… or they are wrong.
Vidyut
August 28, 2011
Even more strange because the instances of this “misguided support” seem to be hand picked rather than every un-investigated support.

Then there is this middle-class movement myth. Small towns and villages to mega metros – all middle class. And the ones speaking are not.

People are so lost in purist theories, that they fail to see people for concepts. Even expect a protest to be more constitutional than govt.

When you start discussing me, instead of the idea I am talking about, I have lost interest in what you say.

Stating loud & clear. I am free to do what I like with public tweets. Make an ass of yourself, don’t blame me for building a museum for it.

The funniest bit in this saga is that out of today’s trolls, at least four had not read any version of the Bills, but supporters are wrong.

Indian govt should do the Obama trick for votes. Kill the top wanted terrorists, attach name with every news story – guaranteed votes.

The one thing the JanLokpal saga teaches me is that we need to have subjects like logic and critical thinking in schools.

Kiran Bedi needs to sober down. Her commitment and dedication is getting overshadowed with antics.
Vidyut
August 28, 2011
I certainly understand the agitation or excitement of Kiran Bedi, but her role at the front of the movement requires a measured presence.
