"Why didn't Pandavas play online poker then? Draupadi would have been spared", wrote Twitter user Mayank Jain. "Of course internet existed during that time. That's how Kunti downloaded Karna from the Sun", riffed another. "Sahi party mein ho bhaiya!(you're in the right party)" went another. Deb was delivering this wisdom on tech gimmickry at a regional workshop on the Public Distribution System (PDS) at Pragna Bhawan in Agartala.
Deb said that the blind king Dhritarashtra would get regular updates about the battles of Kurukshetra sitting in a faraway castle through “technology and satellite communication.”https://t.co/Pb89TJH8l0 — News18 (@CNNnews18) April 17, 2018
“The internet was invented by India lakhs of years ago, not by US or other western countries”, Deb claimed in his speech.
“Many may disagree but if the internet was not there, how could Sanjaya see the war in Kurukshetra and describe it to Dhritarashtra? It means internet was there, that satellites and technology were there in this country at that time” Deb said.
“I feel proud that I am born in a country with such advanced technology. Countries which claim to be technologically advanced are hiring Indian talent to upgrade their software.”
Deb statement comes a few months after Union Minister Satypal Sing debunked Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution saying it was all wrong and the changes need to reflect in India’s school and college curriculum.
“Since (the time that) man is seen on Earth, he has always been a man. Nobody, including our ancestors, in written or oral, said they saw an ape turning into a man,” Sing spouted.
For decades, Indian liberals have controlled the levers of power. They have conditioned everyone to think in a certain way about who is important and who is not. While they have had to yield the levers of power, the mental conditioning is harder to get out of our heads
