The 23-Year Old Visionary :Bhagat Singh

Posted by: danish Ahmed 8:48 PM

Despite a recent surge in popularity triggered partly  by Bollywood movies,Shaheed Bhagat Singh continues to be ignored, misunderstood, misrepresented by the vast majority. The very first thing that comes to our mind when we hear the name is that of a young revolutionary who fearlessly and happily faced the gallows for the sake of the nation. But then, he was accompanied by his friends,fellow-revolutionaries, Sukhdev and Rajguru,who were executed along with him for the same offence. In fact, the list of his co-martyrs would include Chandrasekhar Azad, Ram Prasad Bismil, Ashfaqullah Khan and many more, why does Bhagat Singh's name stand out from the rest ?

The Wicked Wizard of Guj

Activist Mallika Sarabhai arrested
Detention of Gujarati celebrity activist Mallika Sarabhai and other victims of the 2002 riots marching towards Gujarat University Convention Hall where the Chief Minister Narendra Modi is on fast as part of his Sadbhavna Mission reflects the irony of the situation. By situation I don't mean the three-day fast festival but the the nature of peace that Modi claims to have imposed in Gujarat last 10 years. Centuries back Roman legionaries annihilated entire nations to impose a state of relative calm called Pax Romana although Modi's approach bears more semblance with someone he already adores- Adolf Hitler.

Portrait Of An Internet Troll Or Is It Twroll ?

Posted by: danish Ahmed 8:19 PM

Lately I have come across the word "troll" being used extensively on the Web and especially on Twitter and to be honest, every time I come across it there is a bit of resentment in me. Internet trolls are almost as ancient creatures as their folk-lore counterparts are supposed to be but the perhaps the former needs to be redefined. But then trolling was once considered an art  (even if a dark art) which required some sort of skill but the latest breed of trolls on Twitter are more like sociopaths with 0 IQ.
