Rajdeep Sardesai is one of those Indian journalist dicks who routinely confuses reading something important off a teleprompter, with actually being important.

While newspapers all around the world feature the headline “Indian journalist manhandled by Modi supporters”, this video shows what really happened.

It was Rajdeep Sardesai, part time journalist (and full time professional circus clown) that started the fight by shoving someone in the crowd, after calling him names

Before this incident, he went around provoking the crowd, framing questions in a way that was supposed to demonstrate that all Modi supporters were blind and fanatical.

In fact, that was his whole theme - To illustrate the point that you can never flog a dead horse too much, all of his questions revolved around how Modi was all hype, and how all Modi supporters were fanatics or agents of Hindutva.

It was after the crowd had enough that he decided that the best course of action was to descend head-first into Autowaala-protesting-petrol-price-hike mode - and went around calling people in the crowd “assholes”, and “people with money but no class”. 

In short, he thoroughly, perseveringly, diligently earned the crowd’s rebuke and shouts of “Rajdeep Murdabad”, displaying all the tact of a drunk longshoreman.

And then quickly descended to physical violence when the crowd wouldn’t stop.

for the first time in my life i’m glad and proud that my prime minister is my prime minister

I felt the same when Atal Bihari Vajpayee was Prime Minister, but I completely agree. 

Taking a rickshaw in Ahmedabad costs ₹10 per kilometre. We went to Mars for ₹7 per kilometre. That’s the talent in this nation. — Narendra Modi (The Prime Minister of India) in his speech in Madison Square on 28/09/2014 (via mungaaru-mazhe)

Only 30% of Internet users in India are women. It’s one of the largest gender gaps online.

“Chulein Aasman” is a song about female emancipation, a song about freeing women from the roles that they have been coerced into playing for centuries. It highlights the importance of equal opportunity, possibilities and the impact it can have on women.

MARD (Men Against Rape and Discrimination) is a progressive movement for a more gender equal world . MARD initiative focuses on creating awareness against the increasing number of crimes against women. It is an effort targeted at men to re-think their own value system and be the catalyst for change.

Joining hands with Google’s ‘Helping Women Get Online’ initiative, MARD (started by Farhan Akhtar) stands to inspire change in society, to gather support for women empowerment. The jointly promoted campaign will look to generate awareness around the need to get women online as well as encourage existing users to help get more women online, and spread awareness of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment. 

I’ve posted an annoying amount about India’s Mars mission already, but.

Just letting everyone know: This. really. happened.

And now, with the millions that we saved, we can make Dhoom 4.

India’s Mars Orbiter successfully entered the Mars orbit today.

Despite settling gloom among the people regarding scandals and corruption, the Indian Space and Research Organization remains one of the few organizations that inspire real fervor and ambition among India’s citizens.

A warm salute to the ISRO for injecting a much needed spirit of hope and inspiration into the veins of young India.
