Leftist

Buses in Jamshedpur allowed only ladies to sit on the right of the aisle while the ones towards the left were open to all. The only way to circumvent this restriction was to be seated on the last row, which was gender agnostic. Of course, the driver's seating was also an exception.

 

I invariably sit on the left to this day.

Was it like this, really? Ladies on the right of the aisle? And which right? When you are facing the driver or when you are facing the back seat?

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
