Is it because you missed the “main thing”?

Me back in 2015

I started blogging in 2015. And, to be exact, I published my very first article about Airbags in Cars on June 21st, 2015.

Nothing fancy, it was just a free subdomain from where I wrote about some random stuff — mostly engineering and technology.

Even 5–10 monthly views used to excite me. And, somehow, I kept doing the same for the next 2 years — writing poorly constructed short articles on random topics.

I was happy till I met a friend. He said that there’s no benefit of writing if I’m not getting anything out of it.

Harsh words!!! But… eye-opening at the same time. Before that, I was in my comfort-bubble and really didn’t know that people can even make money writing. …

Currently, I’m using Manjaro Linux and it feels like this is the one that I was looking for.

But, before finally shifting to the Manjaro, I used Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Zorin OS, and Pop!_OS and nothing seemed to be working for me.

Not that I hate other distros but I love Manjaro more.

Let me explain the “why”.

India shared 23% of the world economy when the British arrived on its shores; and by the time they left in 1947, it was down to below 4%. Between 1770 to 1947, the British induced famines caused more than 60 million deaths in India. For comparison, world war 2 killed 50–56 million people.

Yet, it is very unfortunate that more than 59% of the British people are still proud of the British Empire and colonialism.

Realities of the British Colonialism in India

Hunger and poverty

The anthropogenic (man-made) famine of Bengal caused 2.1–3 million deaths in 1943. All the essential supplies were diverted from the civilians in Bengal to the military as a reserved stockpile. And, all this happened on the decisions of Winston Churchill. When some British officials reported that the people are dying due to this decision then the best answer that Churchill could come up with was “starvation of anyhow underfed Bengalis is less serious than that of sturdy Greeks”. …
