thought for the day

Posts that don't fit into any other category. If it's anything to do with guns, it probably doesn't belong here!

'one-sided information, disinformation, misinformation and non-information all equally create an uninformed citizenry which makes democracy a farce. Therefore, casting of a vote by misinformed and non-informed voter or a voter having one-sided information only is bound to affect the democracy seriously. Freedom of speech and expression includes right to impart and receive information which includes freedom to hold opinions.' - Supreme Court of India in Union of India v/s Association for Democratic Reforms (2002) 5 SCR 294
"If my mother tongue is shaking the foundations of your State, it probably means that you built your State on my land" - Musa Anter, Kurdish writer, assassinated by the Turkish secret services in 1992

SPORT, as distinguished from butchery, needs
neither apology nor excuse ; the former is the
moderate and humane exercise of an inherent
instinct worthy of a cultivated gentleman, the latter
the revolting outcome of the undisciplined nature
of the savage.
From the book (Intro chapter) -Bullet and Shot in Indian Forest, Plain and Hill. With Hints to Beginners in Indian Shooting by Charles Edward Mackintosh Russell)
