3. Featured video: D. Raghunandan on Science and Anti-Science
D. Raghunandan, President, All India Peoples Science Network, discusses the fantastic claims made at the 102nd Indian Science Congress in Pune by Hindutva votaries regarding science in ancient India. Indian contributions to science are well known and Indians do not need fake claims or imaginary expertise to feel proud. Myths and legends cannot be taken as proof, and knowledge in complex subjects like aviation would surely also have left other evidence. If mythical imaginings are equated with evidence-based science, then science itself is being seriously undermined in favour of faith and beliefs. Discussion with Pabir Purkayastha (newsclick.in)

Say no to hate

4. Announcement: 'Say No to Hatred' events in India
A protest initiated in June 2017 by the #NotInMyName campaign spread to 26 cities and towns across India. Thousands of Indians stood up to say NO to hatred and violence in the name of religion and caste. We observe 10 September 2017 as a day to categorically #SayNoToHatred! #NafratKeKhilafDilliKiAwaaz.
