No Means No

I don’t want anyone entering my apartment without my knowledge or permission. It’s a modest apartment, actually a studio apartment with two small rooms with a corner kitchen. There is nothing much in it of value to anyone. I spend more than a third of my salary on the rent for it. The salary itself is at around minimum wage levels. I have no ill-gotten (or even well-gotten) wealth hid up somewhere. My savings are very modest after twenty years of work, indeed a disgrace for my middle class family. I hold no political office. I hold no office at all. I am a nobody, just a white collar worker. And that’s what I have always been. I have no connections to anyone of public importance. So there is no reason upon Earth for anyone to enter my apartment without asking me. So I don’t want anyone to do that.

Ditto for emails, phones, physical mails and so on.

No means No. Anyone remember it? If you don’t, I am telling you now.

No means No.

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।
