#013 - Should Hindi be the National language of India?
Pew Research Centre report on language in India. Jawaharlal Nehru made sure that Hindi is the blue-eyed boy of Independent India snubbing other languages. It followed by official push for Urdu in Jammu and Kashmir over other local languages. Jugalbandi of Hindi and Urdu supremacists during British Raj. What happened to other North Indian languages? were they swallowed by Hindi?. Left has the record of implementing their homogenous dreams. Soviet Union has failed in many aspects of making its population as homogenous as it can, China is pushing very hard to make the Mandarin the default language for all its provinces. Was Hindi the “Link Language”? The extraordinary statements made by Hindi Supremacists are not backed with extraordinary evidence when it comes to “Link Language”, “Nationalistic language”, “Desh Bhakti language”, ”Uniting language”.

#011 - Feminism - We Should All Be Feminists?
Thoughts on Feminism, should everyone be a Feminist? Silent agreement among spectrum of Indian intellectuals when it comes to criticism of Feminism. Is it an exaggeration to say with an acerbic tone that Alimony is legalized extortion, which is mandated by law, approved by society, exploited by some women and adjusted by men? Why are feminist organizations supporting Islamists? Many successful woman have refused to be labelled as Feminists. Why are some women fixated with the word “Feminism”? Is it correct to appropriate Feminism without even doing basic diagnosis of its recent past? If Feminists feel that they have the holy right to assert the greatness and sanctity of modern Feminism without any debate, can others have the right to dismiss and ridicule Feminism and Feminists without any debate?
