    Focus on rights made India weak, says PM
  • I find it jarring that the world seems to be turning a blind eye, India is almost on the same level of Russia at this point, people are killed in protests, opposition leaders get arrested on bs or even no charges (edit: and it was recently amended by BJP(Modi), 2018 ig, that guilty until proven innocent, I won’t bother explaining why it’s bad), laws are constantly amended to give the ruling party more power, both the ED and EC and the lower level courts are practically extensions of the ruling party and they don’t even bother hiding it, media praises modi 24x7, there hasn’t been a single press conference since 2014, and there is even a new scheme where if you want to participate in any sort of social media, you have to practically get registered with the government, and they can strike down any content they want without any warning

    Oh wait, India is a trade partner of the US? Sorry my bad

  • It’s April and I am sweating like crazy, it fucking sucks, but it also got me wondering what can I do? There is so much conflicting advice out there, even if I tell others about this, when they ask for a solution what do I tell?

    Taliban edict to resume stoning women to death met with horror
  • Second this, no matter what you believe, the problem is that here you are forcing it on others by making it a literal state law, and I can guarantee that the taliban will use this to their advantage, not for ‘justice’

    Why is alcohol legal if it's much more harmful than marijuana?
  • Honestly i am dumbfounded always on this as well, especially since the Bible itself prohibits or at least highly discourages alcohol

    Arabian people. What are some overlooked or not as well known elements of your culture that would make some incredible anime like powers?
  • Tbh they are very easily misinterpreted, I don’t really recommend unless they really have the knowledge to understand them

    They are great if you just want to hear about their(Arabs) general life though

  • Yeah, not its purpose but it’s very good at explaining events, few words but very telling, not to mention the poetic nature of the Arabic language, who hasn’t heard about the people of the cave (Al-kahf)? That chapter also has some beautiful recitations (with English translations)

    Israeli Hostage Says She Was Sexually Assaulted and Tortured in Gaza
  • You are right, but when you make the both sides bad argument, the pro genocide have an excuse ‘Oh hamas bad as well’ but the thing is the very reason hamas exists is because of Israel, and then according to me alteast Israel should be held equally accountable

    Israeli Hostage Says She Was Sexually Assaulted and Tortured in Gaza
  • it backfires

    Highly doubt that, they might not have control anymore but Hamas certainly did made the job a lot easier for netanyahu

    Edit: My analogy was a bit dumb tho, but that doesn’t change the fact that hamas is an asset to Israel, and shouldn’t be lumped with Palestinians or be used make an argument that ‘both sides are bad’, there is only one side bulldozing the other

  • I have been extremely consistent for about 11 months, however no ever looks at me and says ‘Oh he probably goes to the gym’

    Several reasons

    1)Poor starting point

    Had a lot of fat and almost no muscle, overweight

    2)Trash program

    The coach in the gym directly put me on machines without squat bench etc, 20sets per muscle group

    1. (Probably) poor genetics

    Barely saw any ‘rapid’ progression on my lifts in the start, took me weeks to increase weight

    4)Obsessed with losing fat/fatigue from cut

    Ended up cutting way too long, I wanted to get ‘lean’, but since I had no muscle, never lost my gut, just looked even worse ‘skinny fat’

    However I seem to have fixed all the issues on my end, and am seeing slow but steady increase in reps and weights, it’s still kinda demotivating when my friends say that they can’t see progress but ofc they don’t know how bad I fucked up and ngl I am actually getting a little excited with everything coming together, and was wondering how long did it take y’all to start looking good

    I get a lot forearm when doing preacher curls, why is that? Also is it safe to angle your elbow a bit outwards instead of completely straight, I find I can lift more weight this way, but it also might be cheating..

    Posted this on shower thoughts but Ig here is more appropriate, I feel like lemmy is not the place I remember it being last year.

    I really liked the atmosphere of civil arguments and understanding here, which is the reason I started posting actively as well, even though I have always been a lurker, but I feel like I have stopped feeling happy but instead more and more agitated when browsing, I remember people having civil discussions and willing to listen to others, content was low, but what each post produced was really high quality, nowadays though I rarely feel like it

    People here have now started acting like as if they are some sort of god gifted individuals who are right in every regard, they love to throw the word ‘propaganda’ around but fail to acknowledge they could be a victim of it as well, I remember we could still have discussions about controversial topics without things getting ugly, nowadays it is not like that, comments get weirdly personal and sometimes even turn into insults and even phobic, people are hell-bent that they are right on certain issues, and never consider any other opinion or that something might be more nuanced than they think

    I can be a victim of propaganda too, but what I really loved is that you were able to have healthy discussions and put forward your opinions, which meant you were much more aware of everybody elses opinion and their reasoning, which meant you could see things with different perspectives, nowadays though it is very different, you say something slightly controversial and be prepared for the hate comments (remember the mildy infuriating post? The guy ended up deleting it)

    I have learned a lot from lemmy, and I have had wonderful conversations with some of you but I feel like the days where we all were collectively trying to build a good, happy and accepting community are gone, I won’t be surprised if any redditor looked us and thought we are a group of really closed minded people who wont accept anything that is not the common sentiment here

    I was a little kid when reddit was gaining traction, so I have no Idea what sort of thing happened, maybe it was similar to this? I would really like if some early reddit adopters who also came here add their comments

    One of my favorite moments I remember here is when there was some sort of meme about Ramadan, I clicked hesitantly thinking it’s gonna be a war zone, but I was surprised to see people having fun discussing how people deal with fasting where the sun never sets for months, that feeling was beautiful, I guarantee it will be a different situation now

    So normally people like me get extremely happy if you say something like ‘nice shirt’, however it got me wondering about people who receive compliments and gifts all the time, what makes y’all happy? I presume it gets kinda annoying after some time?
