Being a ‘civil’ society in India today

In my latest livemint column, I have some quick tips for civil society in India. Go get a handful of salt before reading through. This is the only mann ki baat that you need to remember. Here is a super-condensed version

Sing to the glory of the current government. Here, there, everywhere

Acknowledge that a Hindu-majority makes India a Hindu country

The state will tell you how to worship, what we eat and how to have sex,

Remember, only superhuman individuals matter

Renaming equals reforming.

If you coin a popular and state-pleasing slogan, expect to be rewarded

Focus on duties, not rights

Stop laughing

Stop asking questions
