Why I Gave Up On 'Social Activism'
By Yoginder Sikand
An excellent and a very on-the-dot read mayfair ji. Thanks for sharing.
Looks like he is talking about himself in third person. This was his reply to reader's in comments section
One more 'activist' , Vineet, introspects himself ,
Finally some introspection. This article also throws light on JNU's left-leaning jolahwalla's who make career out of misery of the oppressed by writing hate articles against the Hindus and India. It also show how writing on "oppression" has become a industry to churn money and directly helping the anti-national forces like Maoists, Missionaries and Islamists to achieve their end goals. GoI should recognize such NGOs and shut them down.
And the downhill skiing
Looks like some folks were really upset at the truth being told.
^^Must have been the JNU leftist jolahwallahs who took offense for questioning their amoral ways of making their money, foreign trips and their jaunts in five star hotels.
Thanks Mayfair for sharing the article, and the clarification.
Do you have a pic of the person? Do we get to see him on the television?
One of the most amazing feature was that this whole social activism and the NGOs function like an industry with huge amounts of monetary gains, scholarships, recognition, fame, and so much more, and the HR groups wouldn't be any different.
Other than of course the whole exposeâ€™, if one may put it like that, there is also a subtle message in the article. How hollow a life people can lead in the urge to get recognized, money, fame, power, and more, and its not just about a social activist. How negative and bitter we can get and a life we can lead, to the extent we can pretty much wreck our personal lives.
Though it is worth praising that he had the courage of writing all this and sharing with everyone. It takes a lot to do all this when even a thing like reputation of the person can be on the line.
Thank you Mayfair for this article. Appreciate that this guy had the guts to admit he was wrong in his thinking.
