    [–] Three GSAT satellites will be launched before the end of 2019, after which India will be one among the nations to enjoy 100 GBPS speed in connectivity namraka 15 points ago in indianews

    That must be the total bandwidth when you add up all the transponders/beams in the GSAT satellites. Hope nobody is stupid enough to think they can put up a dish and get a 100 gbps broadband connection to their homes! That 100 gbps has to be shared by everybody. So if you take the typical 100 mbps fiber connection you get in Chennai for around 1000 Rs, you can serve 100000 customers with that 100 gbps at a 100:1 contention ratio. But at what cost? It will be much higher than the 1000 per month we pay for our wired connections. And the latency would suck. Satellite broadband is not for homes, but for ships and remote areas. To be used by the govt and the military.

    Wireless is very low bandwidth compared to fiber, or even copper. You can have as many wires as you want, but there is only one radio spectrum for everybody. Even when you use separate beams using directional antennas, the antennas are limited on a satellite.

    [–] A vertical hunt (Snow Leopard - Ibex) namraka 30 points ago in interestingasfuck

    This is from a documentary called 'Age of Big Cats'. They show the snow leopard coming back to feed on the kill later, and mention that it is not hurt and is fine. The ibex of course didn't survive. You can see the leopard latching on to its neck even when it was tumbling down that mountain.

    Don't whine when somebody has taken the effort to post something, with words like 'useless'. Have you shared anything at all here? OP seems to be a new poster here, and I am going to make sure he doesnt get discouraged from contributing more to the sub.

    [–] Soldier jumps off the ship on the last day of his assignment in the tradition of the French Navy namraka 100 points ago in watchpeoplesurvive

    He would be, my bad. In the original video the men have 'Marine Nationale' on their clothes. Wasn't sure what they were, Navy or something like the American Marines, so just went with soldier. Googled later to find out 'Marine' is just Navy in French.

    [–] The world’s largest democracy must seriously introspect whether public discourse should be allowed to be polluted by the falsehood of a ‘Clown Prince’ namraka 3 points ago in indianews

    Arun Jaitley's full entry on Facebook:

    Falsehood of a ‘Clown Prince’

    I had, in my blog dated 29th August, 2018 on the Rafale deal, exposed each one of the falsehood stated by the Congress Party. The campaign of falsehood is entirely led by the Congress President. His strategy is simple – concoct a lie and repeat it as many times. This, at least, provides him some concocted material for his statements / speeches for otherwise an issueless Congress. To each of the Rafale questions raised by me, there has been no reply. In mature democracies those who rely on falsehood are considered unfit for public life. Many have been banished from political activity because they were caught lying. But this rule obviously can’t apply to a dynastic organisation like Congress Party.

    If the ‘Rafale concoctions’ were the first big lie, the second one stated repeatedly is that Mr. Modi waived off rupees two lakh fifty thousand crores of fifteen industrialists. Every word of that sentence repeatedly uttered by Rahul Gandhi is false.

    Firstly, these amounts were lent by the banks prior to 2014. Secondly, the UPA Government, in order to conceal these loans despite the default, kept rolling over the loans. These loans were ever-greened. Today the UPA leaders stated that when they went out of Government, the Non-Performing Assets (NPAs) were only Rs.2.5 lakh crores. The truth is that actually NPA s were hidden under the carpet. In 2015, an asset quality review was conducted by the Reserve Bank of India and as a result of AQR and subsequent transparent recognition by banks it was found that the NPAs were actually Rs.8.96 lakh crores and the real amount was being hidden. Thirdly, no effective steps were taken which could result in recovery/ reduction of the NPAs. Post 2014-15, NPAs increased not because more monies were lent but because interest was mounting up on the overdue amounts. Some of the defaulters were given a second restructuring so that the defaults could continue to be hidden. An account is a ‘performing account’ as long as the debt is being serviced by principal / interest being paid. The moment a debtor is unable to service the debt, a default occurs and on expiry of 90 days an account is declared a Non-Performing Asset. During the UPA, most of these accounts were not declared as NPAs.

    The Effective Move

    The only effective move which has taken place in this regard is the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). It has changed the debtor-creditor relationship in India. After the passage of the IBC, the creditors can move the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) which, upon admitting the petition, appoints resolution professionals and replaces the defaulting management. Thereafter, the creditors come out with a resolution plan where bids are invited for a potential takeover of the company, and a solvent claimant whose bid is the most attractive, is given management of the company. This results in discharge of a significant amount of debt which is paid to the banks and other creditors. In some cases, the bidders are likely to pay in foreign exchange which, in today’s context, is extremely helpful to the Indian economy. The Reserve Bank of India, in the first instalment, identified twelve major defaulters. These twelve defaulters, towards principal interest and penal interest, jointly owed about rupees three lakh crores to various banks. The banks under UPA took no steps to recover these loans. They did not prosecute a single major debtor who had siphoned off money. It is the NDA Government which through IBC, changed the debtor-creditor relationship and enabled the banks to effectively pursue the recovery. The truth, Mr. Rahul Gandhi, is that your Government allowed the banks to be looted. The loans were inadequately securitized. Your Government was in complicity. The recoveries are being done by the banks only now. By repeating a lie on several occasions, you can’t change that reality. Not a single rupee of any debtor has been waived. The defaulters are losing their companies and assets under the IBC. Some are being prosecuted. All these defaulters got their debt in the pre-2014 era. Many got their limits substantially expanded during that period. Though these defaults occurred in the pre-2014 period, the same remained hidden on the pretext of rollover, restructuring and ever-greening. I am enclosing a list of defaulters and the present position of recovery.

    You lied on the Rafale deal, you lied on the NPAs. Your temperament to concoct facts raises a legitimate question – do people whose natural preference is falsehood deserve to be a part of the public discourse. Public discourse is a serious activity. It is not a laughter challenge. It cannot be reduced to a hug, a wink or repetition of falsehood. The world’s largest democracy must seriously introspect whether public discourse should be allowed to be polluted by the falsehood of a ‘Clown Prince’.

    [–] LGBTQ should not be isolated, they are part of society, says Mohan Bhagwat. namraka 10 points ago in indianews

    Let us also not forget that keeping any entity open to new ideas or liberal(in the classical sense of the word) is an ongoing and tough process that never ends. Let us just not assume that this is hinduism and so it will always be different and special. It is not in many ways. There is still casteism and a lot of gender/sexual conservatism to be dealt with. Change is a constant battle. Don't disown or run away from what is yours because there would always be idiots amongst whatever you believe you belong to.

    I for one am really surprised by what I have been reading about the RSS lately. I am a proud, atheist, hindu, dravidian, sanghi now. And I see no conflicts in that. Hopefully gay people would see no conflict in adding any of their 'L', 'G', 'B', 'T' or 'Q' or other things to that either.

    [–] LGBTQ should not be isolated, they are part of society, says Mohan Bhagwat. namraka 8 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago) in indianews

    Religious doesn't have to mean conservative or dogmatic or medieval or stupid. Depends on the religion.

    Edit: Having said that, let us try to change the minds of any of our people who are trying to change our religion into one of those.

    [–] ‘BJP lawyer’ arrested for throwing shoes at Periyar statue in Chennai namraka 3 points ago in indianews

    do you think the existing parties would have given room to BJP to appropriate Periyar?

    No, because Periyar now represents more than just the bearded, senile idiot he actually was. He is a symbol of the anti-caste movement(along with Ambedkar) and by extension the dalit vote. Congress cant appropriate Periyar and the Kazhagams cant appropriate Ambedkar. Dalits mostly don't vote for the dalit parties in TN but for the Kazhagams or the Congress like everybody else. But if any of these parties insult Periyar or Ambedkar, they are sure to lose the dalit and lower caste votes. These two people symbolically represent a certain identity(unlike Gandhi or Nehru), and no party including the BJP is stupid enough to insult that identity.

    [–] ‘BJP lawyer’ arrested for throwing shoes at Periyar statue in Chennai namraka 4 points ago in indianews

    Let me try to explain what Periyar represents in TN. More than Periyar the person when he was alive, it was 'Periyar' the icon which had the most impact on TN after his death. While he is considered a dravidian icon outside TN, he has always been far more of a dalit/anti-caste icon on the same level as Ambedkar. BJP would never take on that icon for the same reason they can never take on Ambedkar. BJP has been wooing dalit groups like the Devendrakula Vellalars and others here. There are a lot of political, caste and religious groups which resent that, and have a lot to gain by painting the BJP as anti-dalit.

    [–] ‘BJP lawyer’ arrested for throwing shoes at Periyar statue in Chennai namraka 4 points ago in indianews

    BJP would only lose votes if it disrespects Periyar and they know it very well. This is either some fringe elements or a deliberate attempt to paint the BJP as anti-tamil/anti-dravidian/anti-dalit.
