10 ways to identify fake images on social media

Creating a fake or morphed content is easy and anyone with even a little knowledge of Microsoft Word (not necessary to know about Photoshop) can create a content of their choice. As a user, when you see such content on internet and you are aware about original story, most likely you will get influenced by it and may end up believing it. On the part of the reader, making anything viral on social media takes an illogical thinking and takes some micro seconds to click like/share. The content created has done its job as an influencer and you have done yours by getting influenced from it. 
With easily accessible internet, domain names, and website building tools; these fake or morphed photos are not limited to social media or widely used messaging app WhatsApp. Fake content is uploaded on websites too and at some point of time you might have seen such links (carrying this info) on your social media wall. I published my first article in Feb 2016 on fake news and ever since I have been educ…

The importance of two committees in Education and Healthcare formed by Delhi Govt

Healthcare and education are two basic necessities of every citizen. In order to fulfill these basic necessities, all the governments should be focused on improving their Healthcare and Education system. As far as it is for Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party Government, these two have always been it priority since beginning and government  executives are continuously working to improve these. In the trail of improvements, two recently (in the week of Dec 10th, 2017) formed committees in Education and Health can change the businesses and  services in these two sectors forever. Lets see what these committees are and what they intended for. 
1. Education: Fee Anomaly Committee After a 2+ year long fight between the Govt of NCT of Delhi and private schools; private schools can not increase tuition fee arbitrary, the govt also forced them to refund the increased tuition fee. After the implementation of 7th pay commission, some of the guardians complained about the school tuition fee increase to th…

ACB was making the difference and fighting the corruption in the capital

Delhi's Anti Corruption Branch (ACB) resumed its action after Aam Aadmi Party formed the government for second time on Feb 14, 2015. After arresting 9 people on Feb 16, An anti corruption app was launched on Feb 19, and anti corruption helpline was relaunched in March. First anti corruption helpline was launched by Aam Aadmi Party during its first 49 days rule. Journey of ACB with Delhi govt, LG office and Central govt was not smooth and there has been many issues/contradictions among different offices. While ACB was spreading its wigs and started digging into bigger scams, politics and power started interfering its operations. There was enough media coverage about ACB actions and I was able to sort the ACB related data available on aapdelhidiary blog. Until Jun 2015, ACB performed multiple arrests, registered corruption cases, phone calls on helpline, opened big scams, arrested Delhi Police officials. Here is a brief list of actions (with source) taken by ACB from Feb 2015 to Jun…

Status report on EVM and its reality check

The above screenshot taken from recently published Status Report on EVM from Election Commission of India (ECI). The full report can be found by clicking here. The paragraph stating that "Currently, in the USA, the Direct Recording Machines are used in 27 states, among which paper audit trails are used in 15 states"  seems partially true. Yes, EVMs are used in USA according to respective provincial legislation. More details about EVMs, the province use them, how many constituency use them, where the VVPAT is used; all this information can be found by visiting by www.verifiedvoting.org. In the description of website it states that "VerifiedVoting.org is a non-partisan non-profit organization that advocates for legislation and regulation that promotes accuracy, transparency and verifiability of elections" which seems promising that this organization consist of technical and social experts from different institution and organizations. 

In India, we are lacking of this …

The Forgotten CWG Scam and Shunglu Committee

You might remember about Shunglu Committee from the chapter of Arvind Kejriwal and Aam Aadmi Party. You can read full story here. The committee did a really good job for the assigned task in Aug 2016 by submitting its findings in Dec 2016. And, thanks to LG office for taking a quick action on committee findings. Shunglu Committee findings and action taken can easily be understood as they don't have as many zeros as any other scam. 
Now why I'm mentioning about Shunglu Committee here? You will figure it out if you remember the 2010 CWG Scam. A scam discussed worldwide and which exposed our broken system to the whole world by demonstrating it in real time. This is year 2017; 7 anniversaries of scams and no major action on the accused; no recovery from the damn scam!!! A few more years, the files will disappear, burnt, evidences will be erased and accused will get another big opportunity and responsibility. If you remember, it was the same Shunglu Committee which was given the res…

The dilemma of Presidential nominations in India :: can we have another Missile Man?

BHU has a large campus, lot of programs and students. In the year 2007, we gathered for the  convocation in order to receive our degrees. The venue was packed full and students were everywhere. We were not able to see main guests and our professors. Then the chief guest started addressing the students. Because he was far and out of our line of sight, so we gathered around the nearby loudspeaker and started listening to his inspirational speech. He was our beloved and favourite President Late Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. That was the dream convocation one can imagine. 

I have no idea what happened back in 2002 among political parties that we got him as the most beloved President of India. The party who nominated him at the time might have felt guilty of doing so because of some political developments afterwards. Apart from all those political ups and downs, we had a president who inspired students, yes the future generation: the key players to decide future of their country. All his achievement…
