about: I live in India. I'm against government oppression of the people and against mass surveillance. I'm anti-Aadhaar (the biometric based number for residents). Search online and on Twitter for #AadhaarFail to see how terrible the system is for the poor and marginalized people who depend on the government for their existence and subsistence.

Pro-privacy. Pro-citizens' rights.

The Jamaican Supreme Court ruled in April 2019 against a similar biometric ID scheme and found the dissenting opinion by an Indian judge in the constitutional bench that heard the Aadhaar case to be very useful in its own judgment.
