FARMER suicides is a Curse to India.
In this country where Scamsters are law makers, where politicians loot the banks and the exchequer and live a lavish life, the crony capitalists loot the banks of thousands of crores and run away to other safe havens – the poor farmers who faces misery of the Rain Gods with draught or floods and becomes a defaulter – is chased endlessly by the bank recovery agents and commits suicide! My heart goes out crying to these farmers and their helpless families who suffer the agony and the CURSE is on us the INDIANs who tolerate this nonsense.

You shall detach yourself from dark desires.

Slavoj Žižek and British political writer Owen Jones recently spoke about American politics, the left and global capitalism.
Žižek sees the success of President Donald Trump as proof that the left needs a major overhaul.
Žižek said one positive aspect of Trump’s presidency could be the rise of a new movement on the left.
The crucial battle in American politics today is what’s happening within the Democratic Party, not what’s happening against President Donald Trump, according to the philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Žižek.
Žižek recently sat down with political commentator Owen Jones for an interview that covered the changing nature of global capitalism, the successes and failures of modern leftist movements, and the best ways to change existing political structures.
Žižek, a frequent critic of both capitalism and the shortcomings of the modern left, said liberals focus too much on social issues, such as LGBT rights and racism, and on new right-leaning factions. The cost? The majority of working-class voters may not hear what’s in it for them.
“The crucial event today is not the rise of the New Right,” he said. “The crucial thing is the disintegration of the central-left welfare consensus. This is why the crucial battle in the U.S. today, it’s not against Trump, it’s what happens within the Democratic Party.”
