Hey ya. In 2014, Modi became our country’s prime minister, with only 31% of the vote share. That means 69% of Indians voted against him. What kind of logic is that? On the other hand, in the 2016 US presidential elections, Hillary Clinton got three million more votes than Donald Trump. But Donald Trump became the US president. In what kind of democracy does the person against whom the majority votes become the country’s leader? Friends, this is what I want to discuss in this blog that how do voting systems work in the world’s democracies? After reading this, I am sure you will start thinking about which voting system is the best for democracy. Let’s understand. Here’s an example. Imagine four candidates present themselves in your constituency, i.e. Akshay,…

Hey, Witbylogical community! Seeing the current coverage of news by Indian media, it compels me to write about what is wrong with the Indian media? Today in India, news channels like Republic Bharat, Aaj Tak, India TV and News 18 India are always seen at the top of TRP ratings.

But were these topics discussed enough? I don’t think so. The role of the…

We all are aware of the “Whatsapp” university, Twitter troll army and Facebook fake news. But can you imagine how significant damage can social media cause in the country and world affairs? How political parties and governments use social media as a weapon against their own citizens. You must be wondering for a long time that something is undoubtedly driving these acts. Still, I hope today I can finally connect the dots. BREXIT - was it influenced or not? Let’s start by talking about a referendum conducted in the UK on 23rd June,’19 related to BREXIT. BREXIT = BRITAIN +EXIT. The question asked in the referendum to the UK citizens whether they want to take the UK out of the European Union. Some politicians supported it, and some were against…

Do you know Kenny Sebastian, the standup comedian? On 1st July’20, he was involved in a twitter debate regarding the Tik Tok ban in India. Then the twitter handle replied back calling him a “rice bag convert”, which is a derogatory term often used against the Christian community. Another comedian, Agrima Joshua twitted in support of Kenny Sebastian, after which a chain of events started against her. There were a couple of arrests made by the police in connection to the case, as she was severely abused and thrown sexual threats. These incidents were followed by resurfacing a very old video where she was alleged to be disrespectful to a Maratha icon, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. And finally, social media bullying started as well. The place where she performed on a…

It is impossible to live without failing at something unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all. In which case you fail by default!J.K. Rowling The world is changing faster than ever. What used to take decades, is taking months. What we see right now is the illusion which people might have had for many decades about the workplace being the secure place for the rest of your lives. For the first time, we realize that our children will not do as well as us. We have seen our friends get laid off, we have been laid off and receive pay cuts. People are overworked and underpaid. They seem to have less time and less freedom, living under constant pressure. Most of the…

Understanding inflation rate in the easiest way

Understanding inflation rate in the easiest way

Blog, Curiosity questions
Hey! Imagine if I had given you a 100-rupee note back in the year 1958. You had hidden it under your bed thinking that you will use it in an emergency, the sad part is the value of the same 100-rupee note would be Rs.1.20 today. You didn’t get that? Let’s try another angle- If you buy goods worth 100 rupees today, the value of the same goods back in 1958 would be Rs.1.20. That means today’s Rs. 100 is equal to Rs. 1.20 in 1958. This is the magic of inflation. Inflation means a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money. This applies to everyone every year. Let’s understand “inflation” through the following questions today:- Why does inflation occur?Is inflation really bad?What is the…

How about getting free money from the government every month? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Imagine a scenario where your government says that it will give you 5000 rupees free every month, but not only to you but also to every citizen of the country. Amazing! Right? Because you don’t have to work for this money. Or for some, it doesn’t make much of a difference. But Imagine what all additional commodities you can buy from this extra 5000 rupees. Maybe some good food once a month worth a 5k, couple of Uber rides from office giving you a comfortable journey, a branded Designer T-shirt or shirt, Sneakers, Handbags, cosmetics, a Lipstick and Eyeliner etc.  You must be thinking that I am joking. If not a thought comes to your…

Is the currency crisis really happening?

Blog, Curiosity questions
We are going through some unprecedented economic times where we have seen a manufacturing slowdown, business closures, and an unemployment crisis.  Along with these, another problem that hasn’t been seen in the last 100 years is fast approaching us—something which has caused the depression of some dominant economies in history. Today, if we want to buy something like bread, what would we do? Well, we would probably just go to our local grocery store, pick out some bread, and pay with our card or cash. But buying bread wasn’t always this simple. A few thousand years ago, if we wanted to buy something like grain, we would have to give up something in return like sheep. This was called the barter system, and this is how humans traded goods before…

Why Millenials can’t buy a house?

Blog, Curiosity questions
Why Millenials can't buy a house? For our parents’ generation, owning a house was a status symbol, financial security and necessity, and a “kiraye ka ghar” (rented place) was something to be embarrassed about. But for many young folks today, chasing esoteric jobs and the next unusual experience, a house doesn’t figure on our bucket list. We love to travel across 50 countries before we turn 30, have three jobs or own our business rather than buy a home. This has led to a paradigm shift in the real estate industry globally. Millennials are satisfied sharing their apartments with more people if it helps them save on housing and lodging costs, or fund their next trip, next car, next outing or the next iPhone or any expensive electronic gadget. It…
