The Indian government has shut down the internet in various parts of the country 374 times since 2012. More than a hundred of those shutdowns took place in 2019 alone.


Once you do it enough times, it becomes much easier to sacrifice people's freedom, well-being or even safety for national security. It all starts with little steps. India, Russia... Can't happen to you? Sure it can't. Thought it too...

As #CAAProtests spread across #India, police respond with an iron fist, brutally beating unarmed protestors. They're thrashing journalists, ordering TV channels to stop airing protest footage, shutting down the internet. Here's what they don't want you to see. #PoliceBrutality

Dear #India after #twitter its also time to ditch #Instagram ! Here is the #Fediverse alternative for #photos - #Pixelfed a federated #picture sharing site. You can also follow pixelfed accounts and posts directly from #Mastodon itself. http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/131158
 
There's at least one spammer in #india who bothers to do their research.

They called me on my lunch break and offered a discount on their usual rate to build me a website with "more modern technology than m4 and Unix, like WordPress".

When I pointed out that WordPress runs on Unix-like systems, they laughed and said, "I know, but that's what the boss wants me to say."

I know what that's like.
 
Is Mastodon the messiah we need?
------------------------------------

"Slamming Twitter for censorship and inability to control hate speech, thousands signed up for Mastodon last week. But can the micro-blogging site, started in 2016, live up to its promises for a safer, more civil online discourse?"

Ɠεɱɩoɠ (@gemlog ) posted this originally, and I am not boosting because her instance does publish to the public timeline - so tags would not be seen. I have added some to give more visibility. (I have similar thoughts, but these are not my words!)
---
I wonder if the people joining Mastodon from #India also have an appetite for ditching more of the capitalist internet, because there are replacements for many more things than just twitter.

For example, no need to use google maps when you can add detail of even things like footpaths in your town to OpenStreetMap :

https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=5/20.859/78.420
https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=17/13.11990/80.15142

The Switching Software website contains an ever-growing list of ethical alternatives for many things:

My words now:

I use openstreetmap in Helsinki and find it FAR better than closed solutions.
 
Is anyone planning to start an Indian #mastodon instance? As far as I know, there arent any yet. I would be happy to help with the administration of that.

Indian MP @Writerravikumar has just joined the #fediverse! Do we have any other MPs on the fedi yet or is this the first? I know there are lots of Pirate Party members here maybe some of them are MPs by now. #India #fediverseAMA
 
Welcome to all the people from India that are joining Mastodon in these days!!

#india #introductions and #followindia can be helpful hashtags to find other people just arrived here like you.

We understand that you are still unconfident with this platform, therefore here you will find some helpful tips to better understand how #Mastodon works:

- There is no such thing as "A" social network called Mastodon! Instead there are thousands of independent social networks called Mastodon Instances.
- Every Instance has his own server, community, rules, admins and moderation.
- Every Instance can interact with users that are on other Instances, exactly like email works (you can send an email from gmail to yahoo, right?).
- Every Instance can choose to silence or completely block another Instance (i.e. because permits bad behaviour)
 
Hundreds Gather At #India Gate To Protest Against #Delhi #AirPollution

"Every year, Delhi become a gas chamber in November and we stop talking about it by December. We don't want the government to inform us that Delhi is very polluted, we want a #solution. It is a collective failure as it is the responsibility of the state and central government to resolve the issue."

Social network Mastodon is trending in India; should Twitter worry? - https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/info-tech/social-media/social-network-mastodon-is-trending-in-india-should-twitter-worry/article29908054.ece

> If you go to the Federated timeline the 379,766 odd users on Mastodon seem to be living in some alternate world as there is no discussion on current events. It’s hard to find any connect really as you run into posts on Mensa ratings, bitcoins and so on. Plus, most of the posts are not in English.

If you haven't seen it yet, there is a leftist/liberal community from India joining #mastodon at the moment.

Check out the #India hashtag or #introduction and maybe help them with their questions with the not always easy to use #fediverse.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Bengal_famine_of_1770
The famine is estimated to have caused the deaths of about 10 million people. [2]Warren Hastings's 1772 report estimated that a third of the population in the affected region starved to death.
[3]Consequences: The revenues of British East India Company dropped to £174,300 due to the famine. Tax collection was carried out violently to make up for losses.

[1]По оценкам, от голода погибло около 10 миллионов человек. [2]В отчете Уоррена Гастингса за 1772 год указывается, что треть населения пострадавшего региона умерла от голода [3].
Последствия: доходы Британской Ост-Индской компании упали до 174 300 фунтов стерлингов из-за голода. Сбор налогов осуществлялся насильственно, чтобы компенсировать убытки. [1]
