Retweeted by Sachi MohantyI love that the U.S. continues to have a Madras while we in India have decided to rename the city as Chennai 🙂 https://t.co/Y72DdWlgn6Just think of Propaganda Master of India and his weird fasts and fetishes and the bhakts and media (is it in fact 'bhakt media') eulogizing.But why is everyday irrationality acceptable and not criticized as vigorously? It should be. 🤔And there would be write-ups ... quite rightly ... articles and so on bemoaning the lack of 'scientific spirit' in India and so on.The other kind of irrationality is the 'special occasion' variety and those are only revealed when that special occasion arises.One kind is the everyday kind. One ex. would be so many Hindus making a show of not eating non-veg food on certain days of the week.All the taking dips in Ganga, not eating/cooking, and who knows what else ... It's like there are two kinds of irrationalities.I wish we had a #SolarEclipse in India. Apart from the celestial spectacle, it would have brought all the irrationality out in the open. @ugosus Well ... it was 'all over' ... our ... whatever goes for primetime TV news reporting in India ... when that was happening ...Sounds better than saying "I am praying tonight for our sailors" though https://t.co/gfFlXFaDOg @ugosus Yes; and kids are not a vote bank and don't know about complaining to police; unlike women/wives who may/do… https://t.co/DaG9jjiXi2Arun Ripley's? https://t.co/dNLWmghjiYAll that is missing are magical elves #Munitzcave https://t.co/OT7lHfdgcv

Retweeted by Sachi MohantyYes, @EllenBarryNYT's reporting was great, but it reveals and details a murder. Is anyone doing anything about that?Looking for an eclipse that lasts longer? Wait for July 16, 2186 -- more than 7 minutes of totality -- longest eclipse in over 6000 years.
