WWOYM - Write What's On Your Mind Anon 09/13/2022 (Tue) 02:08:55 ID:e38159 No. 385
Trying to revive this stillborn board lmao Feel free to blog post as well, I think this is the best board for this thread
>>385 I keep thinking about the receptionist at my dorm. I feel like she's into me but that might just be my mind leading me on. I have been thinking about her for the last few days non-stop, and once I saw her I was immediately attracted to her. I know that should be setting of alarm bells but she is really hot and I can't stop myself. I was deliberately trying to be distant to her and I think she wanted to initiate a convo but I was cold. Scared I turned her off, but I don't want girls to know how much I am in to them. Going to try and learn her name but my ex really fucked me up and idk how to get into a relationship now. Devoting myself to the gym now. 135 now, hoping to hit 150 by the end of the fall semester - I think I would look pretty good at 150, 5'9" Mostly hate my spaghetti arms. 175 is my long term goal. Also going to try and get into competitive kickboxing. Was pretty good as a kid but I never pursued it.
>>386 >I was deliberately trying to be distant to her This doesn't work, don't listen to online pickup bros. I mean I'm also instinctively cold towards women, but at least in my case I don't care about dating / casual relationships. >135 now, hoping to hit 150 by the end of the fall semester I'm envious. I'm the same height as you but I spent a summer abroad with no access to a kitchen, so I went from 150 up to 170 (not muscle). I really love eating food but I'm on a diet now, and only after that I can think about gaining muscle.
>>385 >What's On Your Mind I'm in my last semester of college and trying to find a coooding job now. I have two internships at good companies but I'm pretty sure I won't get a return offer because (though I started out strong) I have zero actual passion for software engineering and my bosses can tell (and also because I usually become lazy in the end). So now I have to mass-apply to a bunch of places and hope to find a job in the next month or so.
>>388 Yeah I've heard it is pretty soulless. The pay seems to be pretty good though, so at least you can afford nice hobbies. >This doesn't work, don't listen to online pickup bros Yeah, I think you're right. I just felt bad aswell. I'm so nervous. I think we're a looksmatch but in todays dating scene thats iffy. She also has her own car and stuff and is not a student but the receptionist. I'm in my master so im not some stupid first year but still. She also has a ton of friends here and Im a loner. >summer abroad Where yaro? Also recomping is a thing. My friend is same weight and height as you but he started working out a lot and stayed the same weight but looks a lot more muscular. Also are you the same sanskrit anon? You and Germanon make this site worth visiting. The posters here are on average a bit worse than old InCh.
>>385 How do I get into BIB yaaro? Motherfuckers don't open recruitments, it's fucking hard to get an invite. But they probably have the largest collection of ebook torrents, I want an invite so bad
>>391 Whats BIB? I just use b-ok and libgen for everything, they have alot. I've only ever nto found what I'm looking for when its an obscure academic book.
not reading enough, I have another statistics and coding book that I need to finish. Working on a paper, so spend most day in front of screen. Because of that too tired to read when home. Cultural and non sci reading has taken a backseat sadly. But I can have audiobooks on the weekends and while doing dishes etc. Planning to buy a good big screen e reader to fix that in the future and because I have way too many books that I cannot carry physically.
>>389 >The pay seems to be pretty good though Yeah, the reason I plan to go into software engineering is the high money-to-effort ratio and the fact that there are so many remote jobs. I hate living in cities, I want to be living on a remote rural homestead in a couple years. >I'm in my master so im not some stupid first year but still. Nice, were you in Canada before your master's as well? I'm applying to some master's programs this fall but I'm not too enthusiastic about it, it'd delay starting a family by another two years. >Also recomping is a thing. True, but I've heard it's really difficult to pull off and I habitually don't put that much effort into my fitness. It's apparently easier to lose the excess fat and only then focus on bulking. >Also are you the same sanskrit anon? You and Germanon make this site worth visiting. Yep. There are some quality Indian posters as well but at the risk of sounding like an elitist, quality is the norm for NRI posters and a rare gem among the Indian posters. How is your Sanskrit learning going, did you get a chance to start yet? >worse than old InCh. I didn't realize you were an oldfag. Yeah, unfortunately the chan got flooded with edgy zoomers even in the final days of Rusty's Inch, who refuse to get that they aren't wanted.
>>395 >Masters If you're hesitant I would put it off. It's pretty demanding, and it might be worth to get job experience and then determine if you want a Masters degree. I wouldn't approach dating with marriage in mind unfortunately. A lot of my friends relationships tanked after discussing marriage, mine sort of included. If arranged is an option you might want to go for that. Indians girls born here are basically goris, ones in India are alot more traditional and marriageable. You could also marry a gori but idk how that would work out. Some of my cousins did but their kids look full white and def have no real Indian culture anymore. Born and raised in Canada. >recomping Yeah, whatever you stick to is the best option. >sanskrit Haven't started proper. I've started doing French since its easier and French girls are qts. It's also really useful in Canada because almost all govt. jobs have a French language equivalent. I'm prob going to India this summer and hopefully attend a program there for a few weeks. Honestly, it is really hard. I mentioned my Hindi is pretty terrible so sanskrit is a real challenge. There's a joke among classicists - Latin isn't easy, Greek is hard, and Sanskrit is impossible.
>>396 Yeah, I'm admittedly applying partly to satisfy my parents, and partly just to keep my options open. But it's very improbable that I'll go for a master's next year. I do plan to get married to an Indian girl (from India), but my parents don't really want to get involved in the marriage process. Sort of the reverse situation from most NRIs. >I've started doing French since its easier Makes sense, and it'll make Latin easier of course if you plan to pursue it in the future. Regarding Greek and Sanskrit, though—I say this as someone who's studied both—Greek is really much harder than Sanskrit. Its conjugation is more irregular, there are all sorts of dialectal forms that must be memorized (since it was less standardized than Sanskrit), and in general vowel combination is less straightforward than Sanskrit. And Classical Sanskrit of course has completely lost the pitch accent that Greek and Vedic Sanskrit preserve.
>>399 *straightforward than Sanskrit's
(298.15 KB 1152x864 inchshelf.jpg)
>>399 Hmmm, that's quite interesting. Most of the people talking about Sanskrit come from Latin and Greek so that probably influences how they approach the language. Many have told me that Sanskrit really is very logical, just complicated. I find Latin to be actually pretty chill. There's a really large community around it and English vocab is really influenced by it. French def helps. >nri I'm sure you'll find a nice qt. Indian girls here are still much more loyal than goris but their mentality is just different. I think marrying from India is a good idea. Indian women are the best mothers imo. Thanks for posting yaro. I hope this board doesn't die. >>393 >stats book Oof yaro. An nice e reader is a good investment, my cousins swear by them. I usually just try and get into the habit of reading a little daily - honestly reading in the morning for like a half hour out of bed is pretty comfy, but your mileage may vary. Also, what are you reading now? pic related is my shelf, you guys help me pick what to read (I will obey your decision) >inb4 the language books Also, how is life going Germanon?
>>392 >Whats BIB Ngmi
>>403 > Umberto eco Based.
>>385 ahh yes, my most hated thread on /lit/ has now migrated to /sa/ too Also this board is going fucking dead
>>413 Every board is fucking dead here. This site has no traction at all.
>>414 exactly, puranavid should advertise the board somewhere because this is the only literature related board I'm browsing right now I stopped going to /lit/ after they scared away forest anon
>>413 Just ignore it then fucking tard. /lit/ has been shit for years at this point >Evola thread >Acceleration thread >Buddhism shill >DFW - OVERATED OR GENIUS??? >X language is better than English So fucking boring. Stopped visiting years ago.
>>416 atleast the arthoe fags were a bit bearable but everything got ruined after that r9k influx during the lockdown Going through the archives it was still much much better pre lockdown
>>403 Life is very very busy. I work 10 ish hours. Fears about econmy. Town full woth ukranians, what an ugly language. Im somewhat unhappy with my current state of work and life. Things are too volatile right now. Im still quiet unfit. Winter is already here. Temps going lower than 10. My e reader is pretty comfy. I use ink pen and paper for notes. Planning to read mandelbrots biography next or maybe a vikram chandra novel.
>>403 >I think marrying from India is a good idea. Indian women are the best mothers imo. Based. I plan to start looking in a few months once I've graduated, am fitter, and have clearer skin. I don't have high hopes of finding someone soon, though, especially given my religious fundamentalist beliefs. >>415 He's been shilling the board on 4/pol/ and 4/int/ but there aren't many places to find good people for this chan. Obviously shilling on r/pregnancyNEETards or other places with Indian zoomers isn't a good idea. Where should he shill it? >>418 You're the first person I've heard complaining about an influx of young, fertile women unaccompanied by men to your location. If things take a turn for the worse do you plan to go back to family in India? Or have they all emigrated?
>>417 Not even r9k, /lit/ has especially been infested with edgy plebbitors. Not only are the threads terrible, but so are the replies. >>418 How bad are things in Germany? We don't get much coverage here in Canada beyond Putler's oil shortage. >>419 >religious fundamentalist beliefs A woman's political opinions are kind of irrelevant tbh. You should just look for someone who is a good partner. Women having political ideas is a Western concept. So many Indian aunties say they're liberal but bend over backwards for their family whereas there are trad larpers who don't get married or are even randis. Honestly, I think most women will just emulate the beliefs of their spouse. Also yeah, Ukrainians are pretty hot on average. It can't be all bad Germanon.
>>418 Germanon are you really a German ? I thought you were of Indian origins
>>421 I think he's a gujjew living in germany, and has previously lived in mumbai. Not sure.
>>421 He's Indian. He said his category awhile ago.
>>385 why is that majority of book readers are women out of which most of them read absolute shit tier books while the men's halve is completely infested with soy plebbitors Is there any place left where people actually read and are not globohomoed
>>424 >Be me >Man >Read top tier books everyday >Lonely because no one else reads books these days >Build my own personal library, with rare books in hardcopy and all mainstream stuff pirated on my kindle >Keep reading and enjoy Sidenote, join MyAnonamouse, great community of book enthusiasts, and they have pretty much all mainstream books and rare audio books in existence
>>425 isn't that place filled with gatekeepers and also need a prior invite to join ? I don't know much about that place so please ignore if I wrote some bs 🐧
>>420 Things are pretty bad, but the churn has been slow. Inflation is pretty high and winter heating is looking quiet slim. I am sorted for heating, but my gf has knee problems and it does not look like it will be comfortable. most of all, I am angry because this whole war has been instigated by the USA for its own profit, the loss caused by it affects me personally quiet deeply. Money has been taken away from scientific projects to a war effort that just feeds curropt arms dealers and the German army that is incompetent and "napunsak". This funding is what I use to fund my team and my research as well as other projects in India. At this rate, I will have to let my team go which consists of many Indians whom i hired just a few months ago. They relocated here trusting me. >>419 Most ukranians are proper white trash. Not to mention, refugee's are usually mindfucked. Unless you are into fucking scared kids and young zoomer girls, its not something that appeals to me in anyway. most of all their housing is paid for by tax money. Which honestly pisses me off. >>421 I am Indian. Still have my passport. But I have been here for a while, have a strong community that I belong to, fluent with the language etc. >>422 Heh. Id have guessed Kannadiga myself based on my posts here. I do like Gujarat though.
>>426 Nah, it's actually a pretty welcoming community. You have to give an interview to join, it's basically 15min of saying that you mnow the rules, you will easily get in if you have patience.
>>424 I went to a crossword in India, it was pretty wild how much of a lefty shill that store is, shilling literally only Globohomo books. There are many good indic publishers though, jaggernaut is pretty good.
>>429 The intelligentsia and the art sphere is totally dominated by commies and globohomo galores there. If you want a good offline reading experience here, your only hope is a large, well maintained library, since they have a decent collection of books.
>>429 it's crazy how Marx influenced most of the academia is
>>431 It is bio Leninism. The most loyal get rewarded not the most competent. Academia is making itself irrelevant. I don't think that is entirely a bad thing. >>430 I have collected many books in India. Some stolen, others bought, some gifted. I have many here as well. I am in the process of going fully electronic with my books right now, but many Indian titles are tough to find. Especially ones in regional languages.
>>427 That's really fucked yaro, I'm sorry.
>>425 list some of your favs from your top tier books, anonkun
>>434 I'll list mine from one genre: Fast paced thrillers with killer plot twists/dope storylines- Any book by John Grisham,Frederick Forsyth, Michael Crichton, Alistair Maclean was good but I read these works as a 10yo, not sure about them now. Gillian Flynn is a good shout now, has just 3 novels but top tier storylines. stierg larsson, Jeffrey Archer, Jeffrey deaver's earlier works, Blake Crouch, Stephen King etc. also have a few decent works iirc. I am very unorganised with my books, don't really remember authors unless they're kino. Try any of these tho, I can vouch for a great read.
Fuck me. Both girls I was interested in attend the same fucking weird social lounge thing. I think you have to be connected to the uni in some way to get in. Insomnia is really bad. 4 AM here and I can't sleep at all. FUCK THIS SHIT I am so fucking tired, honestly. Everything is dogshit, I can't catch a single fucking break. I can't be a gymcel because my recovery will be shit on 2 hours sleep. Can't socialize because I have one class over Zoom. Idk what to do guys. I'm at the fucking end of it.
>>438 Should also say that the Judo gym was murdered by Covid. Prof I was working under just wrote a long ass letter about how I disappointed her. Not enjoying studies at all. I hit up tinder, hopefully I get a few matches. I don't even want sex, I just want one human interaction.
>>433 Better than USA starting a war in south asia or asia. >>438 Gymcelling without sleep is pretty bad. Have you ever tried medicinal marijuana ? The high effects are exxagerated, but it does help with sleep a lot. >>439 Masters or Bachelors ?
Going through a pretty rough time honestly, academically as well as emotionally. I'm currently in the last year of law degree and haven't done even one proper internship yet, had worked with a private lawyer sometime in last year but didn't learn anything from him. Family has pressurized me into slogging my ass for meme govt exams but i no longer have energy to put in it. Future is very uncertain anons, sometimes I think of pursuing law but realise that i have absolutely zero contacts to enter the field and make it worthwhile and when it comes to govt. exams, I don't see it happening without changing everything in my life. All of it started going downhill ever since I broke up with my gf/now ex last year and the guilt of leaving that girl still eats me up. Part of me feels good that it happened because I clearly had no future with her but I haven't been able to move on yet. It has sadly taken a toll on my studies and mental health, my grades were below average in last sem. It's been more than a year and I'm still undecided about my future.
>>456 You don't have time or luxury about worrying about some grill anon. If you feel bad about it, then maybe she meant something more to you than you admit. Grades won't matter as much as contacts will, so start contacting around.
>>455 Weed is for some reason banned by my uni despite being legal here - no idea why. I'll try and find some cure for it, I'll keep working out because it's one of the few things I consistently enjoy. In my Masters. Prof is pretty good actually, but it's very hands off and no one else is in my program here.
>>461 Insomnia is serious anon. Take care. If Uni cannot enforce the weed rule, have a small piece of a brownie and don't touch electronics at night. Proffs don't know shit anon. Take it from me, even the most well meaning ones.
>>462 Thanks yaro. Yeah, the day I posted I literally went for two days on maybe an hour of sleep. I'll see if I can use edibles, but I don't wanna get in trouble. >>456 It's kind of sweet you still care a bit. You made a decision though, and you can't live your life in doubt. You have to push forward even though it's hard.
>>463 Any updates on sleep ? Tao te ching audiobook used to help me sleep.
>>466 Sleep is okay now yaro, still taking the sleeping pill I was on instead of going cold turkey. I'm doing alright on half the dose (now taking a quarter of what I was prescribed) Going to try and ween off of it in the next month or so. Problem is I'm living in a dorm and so noise etc. is very unpredictable. I hate the idea of being reliant on a chemical though so I'm trying to stop both these pills and coffee.
>>467 Noise cancelling headphones and sleeping mask to cover your eyes. No need to get cutting edge digital stuff either, get a construction one if you don't want audio, or buy HD280's if you want audio too. A good sleeping mask will last you forever too.
The point of a board like sahitya should be slow but meaningful replies. Other boards, for the sake of fast replies are filled with bait'ers and retards, entire conversations that are paid for by rusty and not really any more meaningful than people abusing each other.
>>472 exactly
>>471 >construction earmuffs How did I not think of this. Thanks yar.
Have to work late on Friday to finish admin stuff, then have to work on the weekend to finish a paper. Life feels like endless list of work with small pauses in between. Sometimes I hate it, but not being productive also bothers me. I feel guilty that my hobbies are getting left behind.
>>494 >I feel guilty that my hobbies are getting left behind same, I just picked up a really good book on mycology but daily tasks and studyceling is seriously melting my brain away, I am not ignoring my studies yet I'm internally guilty about something that I'm not even aware about
>>420 >A woman's political opinions are kind of irrelevant tbh. You should just look for someone who is a good partner. I agree, it's not so much politics I'm concerned about as lifestyle. I plan to live on a farm, conduct twice-daily Vedic sacrifices (which require the wife's participation), ride horses, etc. Not something most women are looking for these days. :( >>472 >Rusty When will पुराणवि꣡द् ever get credit for his work...

>>505 Is this stuff discussed on the Groomcord ? I personally think it kills the point of anonymous image boards.
>>536 nope, it's discussed many times on /b/ and /pol/ or any other board frequently
I finally did enough work to get a break. Now that I have the break, I feel weird about not working. Even though my body is crying for some rest. I am going to miss Diwali again this year, I wish I was with friend s bursting crackers back home. Instead there will be few candles in my home for Diwali and my small puja and no crackers. Festivals are really really underrated.
Suggest some crime thrillers(preferably with a killer plot twist). I've read Christie's catalogue.

>>498 >A womans political opinions matter a lot more than the mans if you plan to have kids especially Explain. I just meant it in that women rarely think of anything political for themselves. Easiest way to get woman to leave at social events is for the men to start discussing politics.

since when did people started associating us with bug mentality people the country which gave us countless literature works, the country which gave us countless philosophical pieces, the country which gave us the oldest and one of the most complex religion and the country home to countless of ancient wonders of engineering and marble work is now being associated with mindless bug people with no respect for creativity, culture and traditionalism why is this happening ? do you think the situation would become worse ? should we focus more on culture preservation of this country or should we let the (((leaders))) of this country take us where they want ? We sure are progressing but would we ever recover from the massive globohomo kick that the industrialization would give us ?
>>623 Most of it is online. A lot of whites, at least where I live, have a pretty neutral to positive view of Indians. >We sure are progressing but would we ever recover from the massive globohomo kick that the industrialization would give us ? Have to be careful what I post here, but there are good examples of countries industrializing without all the hangon effects. Political system =/= Economic system =/= Culture They certainly help and compliment each other, but disparate combinations are possible - authoritarian capitalism, democratic socialism, etc. Responsible capitalist development is possible. Is the BJP the one to do it? Unlikely, sadly. Waiting for a better option.
>>626 i sure hope it only remains online because the exponential growth in the technological sector is no doubt going to affect our culture and identity in walking life too i sense the same energy in atheism and modernism that i smell in buddhism and abrahamism of the ancient ages i just pray and hope we don't suffer another blow or remain weak enough to not get up after the eventual blow that this century will give us

I can already see leaders not satisfied with how coy the party is related to Hindu issues.
>>577 lol. >>578 Yeah, I am going through a solid spiritual crisis at the moment. Might as well mention it here. I had a very old mentor when I started here, who mentored me and basically was the reason I am here. During COVID he died and I took over, a new boss was hired and she basically didn't like my research. So now I shifted my work domain, while my new colleagues are great and so is the pay. My old mentor was the old school post ww2 German. Very hard working guy, actually thought through first principles. Published only once in every 3-5 years but his papers were actually adding value instead of the once in 6 months paper, that adds a drop of value. My mind is not in it. I do my work brainlessly. I hate the students too. Esp the Indians that come, most of them have Karan Johar dreams in life. Part of me wants to be back to India, because there is a lot of work that needs to be done there. But the practical aspects of it are different. All in all, I am too distracted by the superficial aspects. Mainly, I need to find and live my passion again. I am already back in Ted K mode and looking forward to the translation task.

>>640 >Something so bad that it finishes most of us and forces rest of us to think. full fledged riots shall take place so that the ones sitting on the top of ladder gets to taste the poison of modernism too the eradication of cucks and low self esteemed people from hinduism is necessary and people need to be redpilled about the dangers of modernism and the value that ancient india possessed this is the century that's ultimately gonna write our fate for sure, either we become the shameful shadow of a culture once towering over every civilization in the world or we reject the mlecchas and rebuild the glory of our ancestors from the mere base itself im sorry if it may sound a little harsh but we desperately need to rise over the caste system but they themselves will never let us, i can see the problem that our vedic gurus faced during the spread of buddhism in india and why caste system was so rampant during those times
>>581 Drugs will not help you solve your problems, anon. >>643 I can understand getting rid of जाति, but the चतुर्वर्ण is foundational to Indian civilization. Only ब्राह्मणs can be priests, only क्षत्रियs can be rulers, and only those two and वैश्यs can be द्विजs. Do whatever else you want with the caste system, I don't care what happens in the profane sphere. I don't propose any restrictions on who can study what, who can work as what—but just keep the priesthood (religious sphere) intact and make the ruler a क्षत्रिय. That is all I ask of the reformers. Otherwise you aren't preserving anything at all, you don't care about the वेदs or Indian civilization.
>>643 Id even say next 2-3 decades. If we don't start in the next 5 years, its already too late. >>646 I don't think societal organization is essential practice to hinduism. I do agree about roles based on merit and this identity based on merit. But in the increasingly digital world, I don't really know how it can be implemented. What do you think of Balaji's education plan ? You solve online problems , which serves as a proof of your skill and companies hire you on that basis.
>>647 >I don't think societal organization is essential practice to hinduism. The चतुर्वर्ण is. The definition of a Hindu, the only meaningful definition that's different from "Indian" and that distinguishes Hinduism from its Buddhist and Jain rivals, is one who in some way accepts the वेदs as a religious text. And contrary to the assertions of Hindutva, the birth-based (not merit-based) चतुर्वर्ण is part and parcel of the वेदs; there is no Hinduism without the caste system. The medieval idea of the caste system where जाति is fixed, and the son of a shoemaker must be a shoemaker and only marry a shoemaker, has no basis in the वेद; at least there you and I can agree. Outside of the priesthood and ruling class, I don't mind things being merit-based. I haven't read about Balaji's plan, I'll have to research it more.

>>646 i honestly agree tbh but the point is how do we spread our ideas to the illiterate and unwilling ? or do we discard them completely ? keep vedic hinduism aside for a sec but even the puranic hinduism is in danger in the current times the western shills have successfully managed to subvert a massive population to absolutely loathe their past and i don't think people would be ready for a unification based on vedism so easily
>>648 I need to read more to make any meaningful comment on this. But thank you for your meaningful answer anon.
>>577 Atleast in Hindu women I find it to be true, that they install the culture and politics in boys and even girls. The male name is inherited, but the women guides other values.
>>649 My stance is that we never will spread our ideas to the masses. The vast majority of people are too far sunk into Sklavenmoral and modernism ever to be able to appreciate ideas like martial spirit, the value of lineage, civilizational ethos, etc. (Perhaps it has always been this way. The masses never ruled society; even "democracy" was for élites and this is a good thing.) For example, "equality" under the law (e.g. between the sexes) is a cardinal value held by the vast majority of urban Indians, yet it's a distinctly western Enlightenment-era ideal that has only existed for a brief blip in human history. There is no ancient, traditional, or virtuous society in existence that has practiced the equality of the sexes, yet to go against that would be anathema to almost any modern Indian. What is the solution then, if convincing the masses will not work? We just need to convince a large enough group of élites of our values, and rule India forcibly from top-down similar to China. Still a difficult or borderline impossible task, but much less so than convincing the masses.
>>641 I know roughly how you feel. Academia is in it's death throes right now, even in the last few years I felt a sizeable shift and my enthusiasm drained with it. It's now full of busywork. the thing I thought was sacred has become like any other workplace, full of people who don't put any love into what they do and don't view as something seperate from the day to day. They drag their unoriginal and mundane ideas into the field and you have to work with them. The people who write articles for the sake of plumping up their CV, those who teach for the summers off, those who raise their hand to derail discussion, those who show up without having done any of the readings. Indian students have also gotten worse. While they're still nice, there is always this sort of snobbery that's depressing to interact with. Idk how many of them I've seen eat beef here. Not sure how things are where you are at, but a summer in India would be nice. You can live well enough on 1 or 2k a month, see places no tourists go to see, get a nice beachside hut in Karnataka or Gujarat and just chill. SEA is also nice and cheap with beautiful temples and hot weather. >>647 I think some massive change is necessary. That's why I always respect Communists, proper ones anyway - they always saw the need for a revolution and a radical departure from the way things were done to a state which they thought things should be done. Compare that to this society o gradual changes and you can understand the appeal. >>646 I'm not sure the usefulness of caste anymore. I think the benefits in modern society are too few and the detriments too numerous. The main issue isn't caste, its communalism and special interest group accumulation. >>648 I'm skeptical of simple test oriented applications. For some companies it might work but I think performing a function at a company is too varied a task for it's complexity to be captured in one format. CV's and recommendations are still super useful. Canadian companies have started rolling out personality tests here, giving me visions of big brother. >>652 That's why I don't believe in politics. Society should also be in the hands of the few. The masses have never changed since the dawn of time. Read the romans and you realize how little has changed in over 2000 years of recorded history. That is why Fascism is so interesting - it was a mass movement that was openly elitist. If anything of the sort were to happen in India it should be along the lines of the iron Guard in Romania. Same with the Roman form of government - an elected Republic that openly supported dictatorship when it was necessitated.

i don't know if i should be thankful for this ability but its really hard for people to convince me i entered this blackpill hellhole right from its start with eggman and even fell down the rabbit hole but it brought absolutely 0 changes in my behavior of walking life i have browsed almost every degenerate site, imageboard, forums or anything similar for many years yet people can't tell and nor did these things ever affect me i have personally seen many of my acquaintances who literally fell to the bottom of these shitholes in just 6-7 months and now have based their entire personality around these lifestyles claiming to be blackpilled but i couldn't even find my types in there i was lonely and i still am, most probably will remain for the entirety of my life
