The last day Tharoor tweeted on how Sibal assured him that internet censoring was only against religious inflammation. But the data from google said otherwise. Out of the 358 items asked to be removed 255 were criticism of the government. And the interesting part is only 3 were from the pornography area. I cant figure out if Tharoor really thinks his twitter followers are idiots.
I really don’t think our government would encroach into the pornography area. We have men spending an average of 3 hours on internet porn. There is no better tool to isolate an individual and shut out his creative portion of the brain for most part of the day. Even drinking can arouse creativity and free thinking. May be, government will think of subsidizing porn industry in the coming days.
Another interesting news was the government slashed the EPF rates drastically. Now they encourage the banks to sell New Pension System. There is a hefty commission for that as well. I read in a column yesterday how NPS returns very huge interest rates. We know very well how the old people lost all their savings when markets crashed. I simply cant figure out the logic of playing with the common man’s savings again, while the rich stashed theirs in Switzerland.
