When the Highly Deprived Ask for a Little Bit of Privilege

Don’t just read the title of this news story. Read all of it. And look at the photos. And read the captions.

This news attracted my attention even more because I had stayed for one day in this area while coming back from a seminar. That was the Durga Puja time and everything looked normal. Very peaceful. And joyous. The thought actually crossed my mind that it won’t be bad to settle in a place like this.

I hope you remember (or know, if you are not an Indian) that ‘rallyists going on a rampage’ is a very very common occurrence in India and nothing much happens to most of those rampaging rallyists most of the time.

मैं सांगणिक भाषाविज्ञान (Computational Linguistics) में एक शोधकर्ता हूँ। इसके अलावा मैं पढ़ता हूँ, पढ़ता हूँ, पढ़ता हूँ, और कुछ लिखने की कोशिश भी करता हूँ। हाल ही मैं मैने ज़ेडनेट का हिन्दी संस्करण (http://www.zmag.org/hindi) भी शुरू किया है। एक छोटी सी शुरुआत है। उम्मीद करता हूँ और लोग भी इसमें भाग लेंगे और ज़ेडनेट/ज़ेडमैग के सर्वोत्तम लेखों का हिन्दी (जो कि अपने दूसरे रूप उर्दू के साथ करोड़ों लोगों की भाषा है) में अनुवाद किया जा सकेगा।
