In this sorry saga, the Left/Libs (and Pichai/Google) have behaved in an abysmally vindictive short-sighted way – and once again shot themselves in the foot, scored an own-goal & handed the ball further to the Far-Right/Trump/Fascist crowd. Because by virtue of their massive instinctive overreaction (Damore’s firing & vindictive scapegoating), the Left/Libs have managed to underscore Damore’s arguments with special added emphasis, and in doing so, they have managed to infuriate the Right-Wing (who will rally & shift more solidly into Far-Right), and they have pushed otherwise Moderate/Centrist & otherwise reasonable people further into the arms of Trump-like Anti-PC forces – thereby further endangering & undermining the very social harmony that they claim they valiantly protect.

All the other students used to copy from ready-made essay books available in stores; not me. In school, I was proud of my writing prowess. Naturally, I assumed I […]
It always comes down to that question. Time and again. You try to find something, anything to take your mind off of it. You try to find answers to it by trying to immerse yourself in some new activity, taking up a new job or changing your vocation. Or maybe you develop new hobbies or polish existing […]
I was discussing the Fundamental Loneliness of the Human-Condition with my Mother a few months back. And as usual, I was trying to explain things using big, fancy words in an animated way. And she gave this ridiculously simple but utterly beautiful Mumbai Local Train analogy to eloquently explain with simplicity and profundity. She said (paraphrasing her): […]
“Life” is infuriating. Utterly infuriating. That tired old cliché is true. Life is indeed a bunch of ups and downs. Except the ups don’t last, and neither do the downs. It’s all transient and fickle and momentary. All your past triumphs and tribulations, all the anguish and the exhilaration in the past – all of […]
