The Defining Feature of 21C

Filed under: 21C,Apocalypse,Homo Sapiens,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 7:36 pm

Full-fledged eruption of planetary pestilence called Homo Sapiens.

If only there was a God who could set it right.

Oh, come on! There is no Apocalypse in 21C!

Perhaps. Still, you can see far better the skull beneath the Sapien skin.

By the way, my Air Quality Index app does indeed say ‘Airpocalypse’.

NEET’s bizarre code sparks outrage in Kerala

Promise of 21C: Everyone in a Global Prison.

What happens to me (or someone else) today, is bound to happen to you sooner or later.


Do you share some responsibility for this?

आधार बनवाया कि नहीं?

लेकिन आधार तो वॉलंटरी …

बनवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

मीलॉर्ड आधार वॉलंटरी …

आधार तो वॉलंटरी ही है।

मीलार्ड आतंकवादी, काला धन …

आधार तो बनवाना पड़ेगा।

आधार बनवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

आधार बन…

बनवा लिया! बनवा लिया!

आधार ‘अ’ से लिंक करवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

आधार ‘क’ से लिंक करवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

आधार ‘त्र’ से लिंक करवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

लेकिन मीलार्ड आधार तो सामाजिक कल्याण योजना …

आधार तो वॉलंटरी ही है। लिंक करवाना ज़रूरी नहीं है।

मीलार्ड आतंकवादी, काला धन …

आधार तो लिंक करवाना पडेगा।

आधार ‘क’ से लिंक करवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

करवाता हूँ! करवाता हूँ!

आधार ‘त्र’ से लिंक करवाता है कि ठोक दूँ?

पहले ही करवा लिया भाई।

सारे विकेट गिर गए बॉस।



राष्ट्रव्यापी जेल का राष्ट्रार्पण फ़लाने दिवस को होने वाला है।

IVR Systems – 1

Filed under: Aadhaar,IVR Systems,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 7:09 pm

When you use an IVR system, most of them ask you to enter some kind of access code, such as the credit card number and other details. Combined with the fact that you are calling from your registered phone (which should be enough to identify you), by the time you reach the customer representative, they should already have enough information about you.

Then why do they always ask you to speak  out loud the same sensitive details, such as the credit card details, Aadhaar number (or the Aadhaar enrollment number and the time of enrollment).

In some cases, after you have done all that, you are simply told to wait for some more days, without saying anything about your query.

Is that how it is supposed to be? It doesn’t sound right.

Not So Old European Ideas

Filed under: Atheism,European Ideas,Nationalism,Secularism,Uncategorized — anileklavya @ 10:30 pm

Secularism is a European idea. And a recent one at that.

Indeed it is.

So is Nationalism.

Atheism, however, is an ancient Indian idea. Multiple kinds of atheism, in fact.

(The Hindu, 8th March, 2017)

Poor The Hindu! It is trying very hard to establish its neoliberal credentials and to please the powers that be for years now, but it is still cursed for being anti-Hindu.
