The Myth of Job Creation and a Future We Do not Understand

Image
People are shouting "job creation". They have been lulled into a false sense of security that month end salary is the only way to earn money.

Sadly it is not. Clerical jobs/ IT Coolie jobs/ factory jobs/cushy government jobs etc is just a small blip in human history, an idea which started with British colonization and one whose end is near.

We are on the verge of a future we do not seem to understand at all. There will be no jobs in next 30 years except physical labourer. There will be a demand for very high skilled specialists and hyper-intelligent generalists. We are moving back to a pay-per service decentralized model.

In my view, leave aside job creation:
1. Half the world's drivers will lose their jobs in next 15 years with automated cars.
2. Junior Software engineers etc will all lose their jobs in next 15 years.
3. Outsourcing business - BPO, KPO, LPO etc will be gone as AI's perform 100x better operations
4. Car insurance as an industry may be gone with the advent …

Sanjukta Basu, Feminism and Dicks

Image
This is a brand new series on Libtandus. I am not a regular on twitter, but whenever I do go there, I get a lot of amusement reading the indignant tweets of butt-hurt libtandus.

For those unaware, Libtandu means a Liberal-retarded gandu.
Libtandu = Libtard + Gandu = Liberal + Retarded + Gandu
Etymology of GanduGandu (or chodu) is a slang word, commonly used in the Indian subcontinent.  When employed in conversations, in a derogatory sense, in North and West India, this term means 'asshole'. In one embodiment of this word in West India, it may be used to refer to an 'earthworm'. In another embodiment of this word, South Indians, primarily those from the Deccan plateau, use this word in friendly banter and as a popular nickname for their friends.We have used Gandu in this series, in the south Indian sense.
Today we focus on Sanjukta Basu, a Hinduphobic feminist scholar and photographer specializing in dicks. Below we give a brief sample of her works.

Ganita Shastra and Western Mathematics - Swadeshi Indology 2 - IGNCA

Image
I am glad to present the video of the paper I had presented at Swadeshi Indology 2 (SI - II) Conference at Indira Gandhi Centre for National Arts, New Delhi as part of the Global Perceptions of Indian Heritage series,

Paper Title: Practice versus Theory: Gaṇita Śāstra & Western Mathematics
About the Paper Śāstras are an integral part of Indian knowledge systems and provide systematic procedures to accomplish specific objectives in diverse fields like mathematics, philosophy, architecture, politics, economy and others. Noted Sanskrit scholar Sheldon Pollock however views śāstras as a problem, and sees a dichotomy between śāstra (theory) and prayoga (practical activity) in Sanskritic culture. He considers śāstras to be backward looking and merely a regressive reformulation of the contents of the Vedas. This is, in his opinion, the opposite of Western knowledge tradition which is always forward looking and based on logic and experimentation. This paper is meant to be a refuta…

Caste faultline Exploitation by Left Extremist Blog Scroll.in - Part 1

Image
Scroll.in is a left extremist blog which publishes various articles on the so-called ills of Hindu and Indian society. Scroll.in is a heavily funded foreign blogsite with native writers and the type of narratives they weave and stories they craft, are part of a larger strategy for "Breaking India". 
Being a left extremist blog, Scroll.in indulges in extreme prejudicial reporting and displays rabid Indophobia (deep-seated hatred for Indian society) and Hinduphobia (revulsion for Hindu civilization). In order to further their anti-India agenda, Scroll.in has hired a large number of writers who
- display and promote virulent and rabid anti-Hinduism and
- who posses strong grasp of English language and the elitist jargon and idioms of so-called left-liberalism

Scroll.in as a part of its left-extremist Breaking India project, selectively reports and crafts narratives on specific themes like: women oppression in Indian Hindu society (a subaltern/ feminist theme)Dalit oppression …

Is God a Racist Misogynistic Homophobic Genocidal Maniac and Terrorist?

Image
Today I would like to share my thoughts on this very interesting question: Is God a Racist Misogynistic Homophobic Genocidal Maniac and Terrorist?
First let us look at the definition of key terms: A genocide is the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular nation or ethnic group.A maniac is  someone who is violent and mentally ill.A genocidal maniac is therefore someone who is violently and mentally ill and deliberately kills a large group of people. A terrorist is a person engaging in planning and execution of heinous acts intended to kill innocent people and scare everyone else. Is God indeed a genocidal maniac? Is God indeed a terrorist? Does God want to kill people?
A close reading of the Holy Books of major religions like Christianity and Islam, reveals that to be true. God is indeed a monster and the vilest creature to ever inhabit our mind-space. Incidentally, this is not my own conclusion. With regards to Christianity and Holy Bible, noted …

Why are most Bengalis anti-Hindu, illogical, argumentative and anti-national?

Image
Why are most Bengalis anti-Hindu, illogical, argumentative and anti-national?

This is truly a perplexing  question - as a pure-bred Bengali I found it very difficult to understand why most Bengalis hate Hinduism so much. This hatred is especially strong in Kolkata and suburb based so-called educated Bengali people, especially upper-caste Hindu Bengalis, who consider themselves intellectuals (but are not). On top of being anti-Hindu, these people are pro-Muslim, think or choose to believe that Islam is a religion of peace, support beef-eating and communism, and do not seem to mind Durga Puja rules being dictated by Hindu-haters. [1][2][3][4]

These Bengalis are loud, rude, illogical and argumentative. Their hatred for Hinduism, "Hindutva", BJP, RSS is so strong that they confuse the government with the nation, and generally comes across as anti-national.

This is strange and perplexing, because a large number of our freedom fighters and nationalists were Bengalis. The founder o…

India has to help Herself because no one else will

Jodi Tor Dak Shune Keu Na Ashe Tobe Ekla Cholo Re
If no one answers your call, go alone. (Rabindranath Tagore)

Today India is alone. The US has said that it does not consider or intend to declare Pakistan a 'terrorist state'. Instead the US has called for a "meaningful dialogue" between India and Pakistan to resolve Kashmir issue. The fact remains that Pakistan has no moral or legal claim on Kashmir, and has illegally occupied a portion of Kashmir. We should have told US to mind its own business. Over and above that our politicians do not have the guts or the knowledge to question US about human rights violation of blacks, genocide of native Americans and American-occupied Texas (yes Texas was a part of Mexico).

The writing on the war is clear. US will not help India. Never. Neither will Russia nor Israel nor France or for that matter any one else, as many people believe. India has to help herself out of the mess that India herself has created.

Sanskrit Subroutines, Operators and Functions

Image
Sanskrit is a fascinating language, and as a computer programmer I am amazed by the sophistication of Sanskrit grammar.

For example, a typical computer function or subroutine in C, Java, or VBA has an input, a body and an output. Functions can be reused, called from each other and abstracted if required, especially in object oriented languages. With this computer programming framework in place, softwares deal with everything from mobile apps to rocket launch.

 In the same way, since the last 3000 years Sanskrit grammar has been using such sophisticated operators and more. Most of us were simply not equipped enough to appreciate Panini's ultra sophisticated methods.

Let me illustrate with an example, which probably only computer programmers will understand. There is a pratyaya called ठक् which transforms a शब्द to a वृद्धि form with इक् appended after suitable सन्धि.

शब्द ठक्(शब्द शब्द_०)
{
शब्द_१ = वृद्धि(शब्द_०)
शब्द_२ = सन्धि(शब्द_१,इक्)
प्रतिददाति शब्द_२
}

My Advice to Hindu Atheists

Image
You are ignorant fools, I am sorry to say. You Hindu atheists know nothing about religion in general and less than zero about Hinduism. Let me explain why I say so, but I am sure that you will not understand and will unnecessarily argue and waste my time.

Monotheism
- Monotheism is the religious practice of Christians, Muslims and Jews.
- They believe in one External God - male, violent and angry
- They believe in Creator and Creation as two DIFFERENT things
- They believe that God created the world
- They think that science / evolution is bullshit
- They think other Gods are false and kill each other
- That's why all terrorists are Muslims, Christians and earlier all terrorists used to be Jews.

Atheism
- An atheist is one who rejects the monotheistic notion of monotheism.
- An atheist does not believe in external God and that a some bullshit God created the world
- More specifically an atheist can ONLY be a an ex-Jew, an ex-Christian or an ex-Muslim


Conclusion: Only an ignorant Hin…

Ashoka the Ungreat

Image
On this auspicious occasion of Vishvakarma Puja, I would like to announce the release of my new book "Ashoka the Ungreat".

Ashoka is said to be one of the greatest emperors in India who gave up violence after the Kalinga War. He spread peace, encouraged religious tolerance and did monumental social work. Today Ashoka is a popular figure in school history books, in Bollywood movies, in TV serials and among our leaders.

But 200 years ago no one in India knew Ashoka. At best he was an insignificant king like thousand's of kings in India's long history. The British popularized him. Jawaharlal Nehru turned Ashoka into an iconic figure. Our history books post-1970 made Ashoka an everyday figure.

Why did they do so? How much do we actually know about him? Who was Ashoka really?
I make the case, based on a plethora of evidence that Ashoka was not what he is portrayed to be, and most of what we know about him are fabrications.

I present, "Ashoka the Ungreat&q…

India ministers attack U.S.’s human rights record

Image
India lawmakers have sharply criticized U.S.’s human rights record.

In a speech in San Francisco on Wednesday, India Min. Mohammad Hamid , the ranking minority-party member of the Cabinet Foreign Relations Committee, called on U.S. to "do better" to address issues of violence against women, government corruption, extrajudicial killings, human trafficking and outdated anti-conversion laws that are still in use. “A country must respond to these challenges,” he said.

Hamid’s speech followed a contentious hearing last week on Capitol Hill, when Hamid, Anthony Pudu , Dalith Raj  and other ministers pressed a State Department official on U.S.'s human rights issues, including human trafficking, its crackdown on nongovernmental organizations receiving foreign funding such as Greenpeace and the Ford Foundation, rising intolerance, and a recent decision to bar investigators from the India Commission on International Religious Freedom from traveling to U.S.

Pudu said in that hearing …

Italy's earthquake raises risk of women, children being sold into slavery

Image
Rome (The Tiny Man Foundation) - Women and children in Italy's earthquake-hit eastern region are at risk of being preyed upon by human traffickers and sold into slavery in middle class homes, restaurants and shops, and even brothels, aid workers warned on Friday.

Heavy monsoon rains have caused rivers including the Po and its tributaries to burst their banks, forcing more than 200,000 people into relief camps in the regions of Tuscany, Abruzzo, Sicily, Lombardy and Sardinia.

The deluge has killed at least 300 people, submerged thousands of mud-and-brick villages and destroyed large swathes of farmland - affecting millions of people across the five regions.

Charities working in the worst affected regions of Tuscany and Abruzzo said trafficking was widespread in the aftermath of previous disasters in the region, such as last year's earthquake in neighboring Slovenia and earthquakes in Tuscany in 2008.

Human Rights abuses and Violations in Islamic Republic of Pakistan

Image
In this post I will talk about "Human Rights abuses and Violations in Pakistan". This is a summary of Human Rights Watch Annual Report for Pakistan. Pakistan is a terrorist state on the verge of collapse. As a responsible and senior leader of SAARC and important South Asian leader, India must intervene immediately to prevent such gross human rights abuses in Pakistan.

Religious minorities face violent attacks, insecurity, and persecution, largely from Sunni extremist groups—which the government failed to address. The government continues to use blasphemy laws to institutionalize discrimination against religious minorities. The security forces engage in extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances to counter political unrest in the province of Balochistan and in the port city of Karachi in Sindh province. Torture of suspects by the police remains rampant. Large numbers of journalists are killed or injured in attacks, most of which remain unresolved.Hindu women have also…
