Post Independent India

More than half a century back, long before most of us were born, Mahatma Gandhi introduced a few innovative tactics to bring the British to their knees. We, the present generation all over the world applaud it even to this date because being the savages that we are, we are mesmerized by the lack of violence. Unfortunately, to this date, many people are unaware, and those who are aware choose to ignore, the reason why he was so successful. Non-violence was just a strategy, one that Gandhi believed in, but still just a strategy to frustrate the British. The real weapons that broke the British back were non-cooperation and civil disobedience. Instead of non-violent non-cooperation and non-violent civil disobedience, he could have chosen violent non-cooperation and violent civil disobedience. The result would have been the same, but the defeat would have been crushing and humiliating to the British. Instead of …

Even most of the teachers who are supposed to teach are not ‘qualified’ enough to work in a …

To Fight or to Fold

PastGujarat (INDIA) is the land of Mahatma Gandhi who took to Satyagraha, the non-violence movement, as a weapon against the British to demand India’s freedom. PresentAnti-Piracy Antagonism Movement! The reseller community of Gujarat declared a one-day General Strike (notoriously known as Bandh in India) to protest against Microsoft for serving an anti-piracy notice to them.Seems Microsoft served a notice on a reseller for installing a pirated version of Windows. Now I am sure everyone would wonder what is wrong in that. I agree that piracy is common place in India, and with the high price that Microsoft charges on its software, Indians are not left with a lot of options. But how can you justify such an action. All Microsoft was trying to do was protect their interest. And to compare it with Satyagraha, that is a sacrilege. I don’t think Gandhi would have approved of it.I am sure everyone …
