Friedrich Nietzsche

Whenever there have been powerful societies, governments, religions or public opinions- In short, whenever there was any kind of tyranny, it has hated the lonely philosopher; for philosophy opens up a refuge for a man where no tyranny can reach: the cave of inwardness; the labyrinth of the breast; and that annoys all tyrants.

Swachh Bharat abhiyan and you

After winning a massive mandate from the people of the country, Narendra Modi putting an end to all speculations of political pundits who carefully spent each minute calculating what's the first thing the Prime Minister of the country is going to announce after he rallies in his constituency came up with Swachh Bharat. They were nowhere close to it. An idea of a clean India. It sure was out of the blue for the mainstream media, who had been focused all that while on what temple or mosque the Prime minister chose to visit. Outlining the idea of young country, we as a youth of independent India owe a lot to the generations who died for the freedom of the country. What else could be a better way of paying tribute to the great leaders born on this land. The Swachh Bharat mission was started with remembrance of Mahatama Gandhi's dream of a clean India and the mission to make the whole country clean by Mahatma Gandhi's birth anniversary in 2019.

Here we see the list of shows that have made their way to the top using these skills.


Aadhar: State machinery for mass surveillance

If the machine of the government is of such nature that it requires you to be an agent of injustice to another, then, I say, break the law.
- Henry David Thoreau

Denial of treatment in government hospitals or no food for children enrolled in mid-day meal schemes, all the necessary means of survival could be denied. This is the reality of today. The government is clamping down heavily on rights of citizens, and there's a growing threat to civil liberties. If you want to build a toilet in your home with the assistance of Swacch Bharat scheme you need aadhar, if you are availing medical aid from Government or issuing a driver's license, then you must enrol for aadhar. From filing Income tax to issuing PAN card we need aadhar. By the time, you'll finish reading this post, the government would probably have linked couple more public services with aadhar.
