Pollution issue in India: Polluting the minds of innocent

BAN CRACKERS? I didn't want to comment on that, hoping for greater good. But when our very intellectuals make it a communal issue, one is forced to talk.

Why is it that Supreme Court interferes only with Hindu festivals? In his tweet (see screenshot below), Shashi Tharoor says goats are lesser beings and that Muharram processions hurt only themselves.

Then why did Supreme Court set the dahi handi height limit? Wasn't that to stop people from getting hurt?

Basically, the followers of Lord Ram are supposed to stop using water on Holi. Diwali is something a kid waits months in advance and now he can't use fireworks and crackers because fireworks cause pollution.

1. If it is really pollution, install dust collectors all over Delhi?

2. What about illegal factories operating from residential colonies all over Delhi?

3. Why are old vehicles still on roads?

4. Why can't government use permanent remedies instead of pushing a particular community to the corner?

5. If petitions on loudspeakers can't be entertained, why bother to look into Jallikatu or Diwali?

Looking at the bigger picture, it feels that this (Hindu) community is being bullied. The more we talk about inclusiveness - that Hindus can be of any religion, the more those who want instability are pushing their agenda.

The courts and intellectuals have problems with smaller festivals like Rakhsha Bandhan, Karva Chauth, Jiyutia, etc too, because they reflect a patriarchal society. It is reforms and attacks on rituals on only one community. I am not saying Muslims or Christians don't have issues with government. Muslims are asked to prove their patriotism every other day. I don't know about Christians because more than the government, the Vatican controls them.

All I want to say that if indeed acting for the reforms, treat everyone as same.

If you fear other communities, leave Hindu traditions alone too. I heard there is a plea pending against cremation of dead because it too pollutes the environment. I think it is their divide and rule politics that is polluting the minds of otherwise peaceful Hindustanis - who just want to live their life instead of interfering with anyone's tradition.

Best app for Android phones - Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile

After five years of testing different multipurpose apps for Android maintenance, I realize Clean Master from Cheetah Mobile is the best maintenance app for Android phones. Not only maintenance, Clean Master offers you much more than you can expect from a single app.

For a while, it felt the "All in One for Android" is good. But turned out it leaves out add-ins even after you remove it. What is available in single code in Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile, is available as add-ins in All in One app for Android. When you uninstall All in One app, the add-ins continue to run in RAM. I could not find any method to remove them as they were not visible in any App Managers. I had to do a factory reset and that was when my doubts were removed and I acknowledged Clean Master of Cheetah Mobile is the best option for Android phones.

Analysis of Mahabharata Characters - Bhishma

Bhishma is one of the powerful characters of the epic, Mahabharata that contains and shows a pious way of life to the mortals living on earth. I am starting this Analysis of Mahabharata Characters with Bhishma as he is the oldest character in the epic/saga and has tremendous influence on the other characters of Mahabharata. Bhishma was the son of king Shantanu and Ganga (the river Ganges in female form). Bhishma was considered one of the eight Vasus (rishis) who had to take birth on earth due to a curse. Before we analyze the character, let us take a quick look at the story of Bhishma according to the Mahabharata.
Background Of Bhishma Bhismha is considered one of the eight Vasus who stole a cow named Kamadhenu from a sage. When the sage cursed them to take birth as humans, all Vasus asked for his forgiveness. The sage, for seven Vasus who helped the main Vasu to steal the cow, reduced the curse to death just after birth. However, the main Vasu who actually stole the cow was to stay …

Smart Artificial Intelligence Dangers - What is Musk doing?

🛰When Stephen Hawkings said human race has the biggest threat from its own scientists, he was not totally wrong.
Elon Musk, of Tesla Motors, is going a bit too far with his science obsession. I can understand electric cars & Hyperloop transportation. I can also understand with his space ferrying plans where he has proposed to ferry people to the moon and back. Was it a space elevator? I can't recall.
Anyway, his team dealing with artificial intelligence has found that their machines have developed their own language for communicating with each other.
This is scary, because even animals on this planet can make certain sounds only, to express their feelings. None other than the humans have a full set of words that can be used for anything. And it is not restricted to few sounds with varying pitch. It is a whole complicated language.
Now Musk's team working on artificial intelligence says it has discovered that the machines in their experimental network, are using differen…
