It is of great value to read sacred texts and books of wisdom. Speak the truth. Bear in mind that God’s Name is He Himself in one form; let it be your inseparable companion. Try your utmost never to remain without Him. The more intense and continuous your efforts to dwell in His Presence, the greater will be the likelihood of your growing joyful and serene. When your mind becomes vacant, endeavor to fill it with the awareness of God and His contemplation.

An Indian dancer from the transgender community sits in the lap of a participant as part of a performance during a conference in New Delhi on June 2, 2012. The event, called the first national Hijra Habba, brought together transgenders, eunuchs, government representatives and non-governmental organizations to discuss ways of achieving equality for members of the community in India. (Kevin Frayer/Associated Press) #

Trans*Indians. Yes.

Note how they use the word transgender + hijra, beware of calling all sexual/gender minorities from foreign nations ‘transgender’. They are not.

“MA” 
May 2012
Ma births us, feeds us, heals us,  sustains us .Ma is earth, the green that drapes the brown, the red orange yellow green blue purple pink that showers our eyes 
she is the carrier, holds life, creates life 

मां is my mother, ma builds us from the ground up  
Recognize their invisible labor & the conditional relationship many of us have to the earth and the conditional relationship many males have with womyn. She is used and then left, like our earth, used for her resources and then abandoned. 

Respect ya mothers, sisters, aunts, & womyn
Know your roots  

By Khushboo Gulati

omg

wow @ trying to defend their racism with “you got a problem with that?” SMH.

There is more when you click on the source

What does the article, that seeks to tell the recent history of India, inadvertently tell us? That exotification of countries far, far away still exists and while ALL three of those cover stories deal with technological advancements and the emergence of a strong work force, the covers only have one thing in common: Exotic-looking “Indian” women representing as many parts of the culture as possible, never mind the fact that they have nothing to do with the stories.

This just proves white supremacy in a sense: No matter what you do and what you achieve, you will always be seen as that brown person with pretty Henna on your hand, big eyes, and wearing dancing attire in a call-center (because, you know, that shit always happens). Brown people still are not seen for what they achieve and what they contribute to this world, but rather for how they are different than white people.

I mean come on! No we do not code when we do henna. I mean, Bangalore has a shitty “Silicon Valley” compared to Israel’s Silicon Wadi. I talked about here about Israel’s so called techno-capitalistic economy (which really redefine Israel). In fact, Indians aren’t taking your jobs, really. I mean, I understand all about the results of postcolonialism and how the ones hegemonizing us thinks that we’re some Third-World weirdos, but come on bruh, at least get your facts straight.

A whopping 73% of scientists and engineers are white.

A 2006 study showed that white men make up 55% of scientists and engineers (the vast majority) and white women 18%. Asians were the only minority group with significant numbers working in STEM, holding 17% of the jobs between both men and women. When it comes to other minority groups, the statistics are striking. Black men and women make up less than 3% of scientists and engineers, Hispanics 4%, and all other groups 3%. Added together, under-represented minorities make up only 10% of all of those working in science and engineering occupations. Even sadder? Only one in 10 STEM professionals is a minority woman.

And how is Indian culture even similar to computers?
