    Star Trek, China, and leaving home

    We all have homes. But we all have different ways of seeing home. And a lot of times, these ways are culturally defined. Today's episode is about leaving home and staying home.

    Echo chambers can be good

    Echo chambers can be good

    We have grown accustomed to thinking of echo chambers as a bad thing. But in an atmosphere where free expression advocating equality, rule of law, and common sense are being penalised and discouraged through fear, they may be the only thing that allow us to remember who we are as a people and what is important for the continued survival of democracy.

    Doing what's easy, dooming what's hard

    Doing what's easy, dooming what's hard

    When the people applaud every easy antic undertaken by those in charge of doing the hard things, they put their stamp of approval on inept and irresponsible governance.

    Superman, Zod, and cultural landscapes

    Deshbhakti vs Deshprem

    Deshbhakti vs Deshprem

    Bhakti makes way for putting the leader above the people. It turns representatives into rulers. It is against the basic principle of democracy where people are primary and eternal. Leaders come and go and though you may love a particular leader, you must never be devoted to them.
