Excel sheets will be produced in TV news studios tonight justifying this move, of course. They'll point out, "WHAT ABOUT INDIRA GANDHI!? She did this so many times! Why no outrage then!?"

Pls don't fall for that crap. This #PresidentRule business is just not good.

If you are wondering why there were plain clothes Policemen attacking students in the #JNU protests, it is so that video evidence of atrocities won't be blamed on them.

Aaron Swartz. Born on this day! November 8, 1986. He would have been 33 today.

November 9 will be observed all over the world as Aaron Swartz Day — an annual event to celebrate Aaron Swartz’s legacy as an activist, programmer, entrepreneur & political organizer.

Hackathons would be organised, where diverse & passionate folks would gather & exchange ideas with each other, who believe in Freedom of #Information & #Education and Securing Digital Space for all.

Remember 9th November! 💜

So I got my chargesheet yesterday. Over email. Worse than breakup over SMS.

One of the charges in that chargesheet is that I applied for PM excellence award only after repeated reminders from superiors. :)

If you call RMS a hero of free software, you're protecting a person who has committed pervasive sexual harassment.

You're declaring that code is more important than human beings.

You're declaring that the many well-documented cases of him driving folks out of open source are less important than Emacs.

I don't need to know you.

You don't meet my standards for friendship. Or tolerating.

not rid of RMS yet

Dear, @kushal

i probably have known you for the past few years and dgplug has changed my life so much for the better.

Thank you for this extraordinarily generous decade and a half.

I probably speak for the rest of #dgplug when I say, we are extremely grateful.

I wish you all the wishes I can muster as you soar upwards and onwards

Mastery requires both impatience and patience.

The impatience to have a bias toward action, to not waste time, and to work with a sense of urgency each day.

The patience to delay gratification, to wait for your actions to accumulate, and to trust the process.
