"No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots."― Barbara Ehrenreich


"If my mother tongue is shaking the foundations of your State, it probably means that you built your State on my land" - Musa Anter, Kurdish writer, assassinated by the Turkish secret services in 1992

'one-sided information, disinformation, misinformation and non-information all equally create an uninformed citizenry which makes democracy a farce. Therefore, casting of a vote by misinformed and non-informed voter or a voter having one-sided information only is bound to affect the democracy seriously. Freedom of speech and expression includes right to impart and receive information which includes freedom to hold opinions.' - Supreme Court of India in Union of India v/s Association for Democratic Reforms (2002) 5 SCR 294

SPORT, as distinguished from butchery, needs
neither apology nor excuse ; the former is the
moderate and humane exercise of an inherent
instinct worthy of a cultivated gentleman, the latter
the revolting outcome of the undisciplined nature
of the savage.

From the book (Intro chapter) -Bullet and Shot in Indian Forest, Plain and Hill. With Hints to Beginners in Indian Shooting by Charles Edward Mackintosh Russell)
