  3. If you are Mumbaikar or have stayed in Mumbai, you'll know that the local trains are the lifeline of the city with people spending many hours traveling to their workplaces every day. Those who have traveled or are traveling by local trains would know how the local trains have many artists entertaining the people. One such artist is Pooja Sharma, a transwoman from Mumbai, who has now become an Internet sensation, after a photographer shared her videos online. View this post on InstagramShe has been getting a lot of attention on the local trains as she reminds people of Rekhaji, especially because of her dressing sense. From her jewelry to saree to her hair, everything is just like the Bollywood veteran actor. Pooja rose to fame by sharing videos of her dancing aboard the local trains, on Instagram. Here’s one of the videos: View this post on Instagram After the video started to go viral, people began appreciating her beauty and acknowledging her graceful personality. They also agreed to the fact that she does look like Rekha. © Viral Bhayani Instagram © Viral Bhayani Instagram We stumbled across one of her interviews with Crossbyte Productions which gave us more insight into her story. When asked about how people treat her, she said, “Amid all the rush when I get in the train, people look at me but they don’t think that I have come to beg. All of them stand near me. They come and stand near me just to see me. When I ask for money, people laugh and they give it to me with so much love and affection. I ask for Re 1 and the crowd of Mumbai local train knows me. They recognize me as Rekhaji. I don’t even have to ask for money. Everyone says that the way I wear my saree, I look like Rekha.” Sharing her past, she added, “When I was young, I did not go to play with my friends who were boys. I used to play with girls in my locality. I felt good, and I used to win in every game in all those ladies' games. Everyone loved me when I was young but I didn’t know I was different. I used to think I am a boy but why don't I play with friends who were boys. My uncle used to scold me but I still used to play with the girls of my locality. In my area, there was a dance competition and I also used to participate. So what I did was I wore my sister’s saree to dance. Everyone started laughing. In my area, there was one Thakur Dada and he understood that I was different. He came over to our place and started discussing me with my family members. We were famous in our family. People used to say that we think that ‘your son is a little different. I did understand when everyone started to point out. I saw my father cry that night when Thakur dada left our house and it did hurt me a lot. What I am doing, I am not doing it deliberately.” Here’s the full interview: View the full article

  5. The Union Information & Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar announced on Sunday that IIT Bombay, in collaboration with his ministry has decided to form a Centre of Excellence for video games development courses. The centre will offer courses on VFX, gaming and animation and are expected to commence from this year itself. "We're at an advanced stage of preparations,” the Union Information & Broadcasting Minister said. © Reuters Lately, India has released some homegrown games like Raji: An Ancient Epic, FAU-G and other games that have received accolades and attention from the world media and Indian gamers. However, the Indian game development industry is still not at par with other countries at the moment which could be the reason behind the new initiative by the Union Information & Broadcasting Minister. FAU-G’s rocky launch was a testament to the sub-par quality of games made in India. Having said that, there is always an exception to the rule where games like Raji: An Ancient Epic received high acclaim and good reviews from players and showed that games made in India can indeed offer a good experience. © tarun-savvy-unsplash However, Javadekar did mention that many mobile games are "violent, explicit and addictive,” and the government plans to promote Indian cultural ethos in games. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi is passionate about preserving and perpetuating Indian values, heritage and cultural ethos and is putting in the immense effort so that the children and youth of our country are made aware of our rich culture and tradition," the minister said. "We can also introduce those values via modern technology and put it to optimum use," he said. "PUBG was just one example of it, but criticising those games is not the solution. The solution is to create our own games and apps in line with #MakeInIndia for the world so that these are adopted the world over for their basic values that are an integral part of our Indian ethos," Javadekar said. © Reuters It would be interesting to see which courses will be offered in each aspect of game development. Nonetheless, it is reassuring to see the Indian government taking game development seriously. Currently, mobile games dominate the Indian market, however it was not made clear whether the new courses will be specific to mobile gaming or console/PC gaming development. India is currently the world’s fastest-growing mobile gaming market where it has been growing 22% annually and is expected to be worth $1.1 billion by this year as per a recent Google-KPMG study. We should know more once enrolment for video game development courses is open. Are you interested in learning video game development?

  6. A woman from across the borders, Pakistan, has stunned the internet for her uncanny resemblance with Bollywood star Aishwarya Rai. It was the fans of the actor who discovered the doppelgänger from Pakistan, Aamna Imrann, and she soon started to get attention from all corners. It was Viral Bhayani who shared the collage of her pictures that left the Indian fans startled who also accused her of her plastic surgery. People were confused when they first looked at her but then started to call her the ‘sasta’ version of the actor. View this post on Instagram Here’s how people reacted to her pictures circulating online: © Viral Bhayani Instagram © Viral Bhayani Instagram Reacting to the post, Aamna thanked those sending her love and cleared all the surgery rumours as well: "THANK YOU! Humbled. Thankful to all of you for the love, positivity, and kindness! Blessed and no surgeries (negativity belongs behind me). Much love to all!" © Viral Bhayani Instagram On her Instagram account, Aamna often recreates Aishwarya’s looks from her movies. She also has a few videos where she is seen enacting scenes from films like Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Devdas, and Mohabbatein. View this post on Instagram View this post on Instagram View this post on Instagram We are waiting for Aishwarya to react to this and share her response on fans finding her doppelgänger from Pakistan. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who started off her career in the entertainment industry after winning the Miss World crown in 1994, has come a long way. In 2009, she went on to win the Padma Shri award for her contributions to the art. It was rumoured that Aishwarya Rai will be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Gulab Jamun alongside Abhishek Bachchan but the movie got shelved. The film being shelved came as a major shock to their fans who want to see them spreading the magic once again as they did in Guru and Kuch Na Kaho. View the full article

  10. Influencers in India may have a tough fight ahead as the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI) have issued new draft rules for advertising and promotions by influencers on digital platforms. The new rules are being introduced to protect consumer interest as the watchdog seeks to oversee the growing influencer market. © Twitter/Technical-Guruji (For representation purposes only) Unlike the USA, in India influencers are not required to declare any paid promotions or advertising at the moment to their followers which has been problematic in the past. The new draft code now has a rule where influencers will have to clearly identify and label upfront that said communication is an advertisement. “The biggest part of the new rules is to tell consumers that you are watching an ad and not content. That disclosure has to be in a prominent position," said Manisha Kapoor, secretary-general, ASCI. The new rule suggests that influencers will have to distinguish advertisements and paid promotions that a follower can clearly identify. The new rules will be applicable for all digital devices across phones, tablets and laptops. The advertisement or sponsored segment needs to be visible regardless of the product or app is being used or not. The new rules will be applicable across all platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, Youtube amongst others and is applicable to video, audio or picture promotions. For audio, the disclosure needs to be stated at the beginning and the end. © Youtube/GeekyRanjit (For representation purposes only) The rules also extend to claims made for sponsored products to exaggerate claims the brand is making. “In case of a shampoo ad, the influencer should not use a filter to make the hair look shinier," said Subhash Kamath, chairman, ASCI, adding that sponsored posts also need to be truthful and honest. The new rules have been prepared in collaboration with digital and social media influencers and key stakeholders. The rules are open for public discussion and suggestions until 8th march. The final guidelines are going to be introduced by 31st March and will be enforced for all promotional posts published after 15th April 2021. View the full article
  11. We're soon going to enter March, a month that was a gamechanger for us last year. A month that was definitely life-altering for us in more ways than one. But now that we're inching closer towards the end of the pandemic and more industries are opening up, people are stepping out, and all that jazz. So, if you have plans of stepping out soon, here are trending hairstyles of 2021 to try out: 1. The Dishevelled Look View this post on Instagram Carrying on the tradition of how our hair looked in 2020, this hairstyle is for the low-maintenance guys who prefer the, "I woke up like this" look. This hairstyle becomes more prominent about two weeks after you get your haircut. 2. Mini Mohawks © grunge hairstyles/ Instagram A more subtle version of a full-fledged mohawk, it's for someone who is willing to take a semi-risk in 2021. Also, it works well if you want to shave off your long lockdown hair but don't want a buzzcut. The look can be defined as a grade-one buzz all the way around the back and sides of the head followed by a two-to-three-inch strip of hair in the center. If it goes wrong, you can always shave it off. 3. Acid Pops © grunge hairstyles/ Instagram Acid pops refer to pastel-hued buzzcuts and crops that have been spotted in the past by celebrities that include the likes of Pharrell Williams, Kanye West to Zayn Malik, and Justin Bieber. It's a great hairstyle to try if you don't see yourself going to the office anytime soon. 4. Grunge Jobs View this post on Instagram Defined as a thrown-together, mildly crusty aesthetic, grunge-inspired hair takes its inspiration from Seattle from the 1990s and Kurt. Cobain. Think Kartik Aaryan with his mid-length hair. To achieve the hairstyle, you'll need to grow your hair out keep them conditioned. Subtle streaks like the one Kartik has also worked well. 5. The Disconnected Crop View this post on Instagram A hairstyle with a relatively long hair length at the top and a fade on the sides. This hairstyle is extremely versatile and can be dressed both up and down with ease. View the full article
  12. With a plethora of choices for truly wireless earphones, it kind of gets hard to decide which one is perfect for you. Well, if you are an Android user who wants a TWS that offers great sound, comfortable fit and noise cancellation, the Galaxy Buds Pro fits the bill. The new earbuds by Samsung were launched alongside the Galaxy S21 Series and I’ve been using the earbuds for almost everything for the past few weeks. Be it music listening sessions, attending calls on Zoom, or watching video content, the Galaxy Buds Pro has well suited my purpose. Here’s what I think about Samsung’s latest TWS earbuds: Design and FeaturesI’ve always wanted the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ to have some form of noise cancellation and Samsung delivered on that front with the Buds Pro. Samsung has been killing it with their wearables and the same can be said about the company’s wireless audio products. It is the only worthwhile competitor to the AirPods pro right now, thanks to everything it has to offer. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla This time around Samsung went more with a classic design instead of using the bean-shaped earbud on the Buds Live. The TWS earphones come with multiple ear tips which you can change according to your preference. I usually use the largest size simply because it fits my ear canal the best. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Using the buds is quite a dream as they don’t really fall out that easily even though they don't not come with ear fins like previous generations. Even when using the buds while exercising, the buds do not fall out that easily which I cannot say for other earbuds I have tested. Both earbuds come with touch controls as well which can be turned off manually from the Wearable app if you want to avoid accidental touches while working out. The touch feature is quite responsive and is easy to use for carrying out functions such as skipping tracks, play/pause music and answering calls. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla You can also toggle between the three noise cancellation options by using the touch controls. In my experience, the Buds Pro delivers slightly better noise cancellation than the previous Buds Live and that’s due to the design of the earbuds themselves. Buds Live offers impressive ANC performance and the fact that Samsung improved upon that with the Buds Pro makes it currently the best ANC device to use for Android right now. You can even let ambient noise in from the earbuds for situations such as walking on the road. This feature is essential if you want to be mindful of your surroundings and need to be able to hear oncoming traffic. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The charging case is also very similar to the Buds Live which means it is easier to carry in your pocket and does not take up too much space. The charging case can be charged wirelessly or with a USB-C charger. You can get an hour of playback time in five minutes from the charging case which is quite impressive. The buds themselves can last up to five hours on a single charge with ANC enabled, defeating the AirPods Pro by an extra hour. Sound Performance The return to a traditional buds design also works in the Galaxy Buds’ favour as the sound experience is also enhanced. The dual-driver array developed by AKG does help in giving a deep bass and balanced mid frequencies. It is the perfect balance needed for wireless earbuds for both music-listening and viewing videos. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Since most earbuds use a single driver, the Galaxy Buds Pro has a huge advantage over its competition since both drivers can handle particular frequencies. A single driver design is usually not preferred as it has to handle all the frequencies which makes the overall experience a bit lacking. Since the dual drivers can divide the mids and lows between them, the final output is far better than what you would get from cheap TWS earbuds. In fact, I prefer the Galaxy Buds Pro’s sound over the AirPods Pro as well. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The low-frequencies are represented well while the mid and high frequencies have enough headroom for clear and crisp sound. If you like listening to Hip-Hop or electronic music, the Buds Pro are ideal for you. You can also use the ‘Dynamic’ EQ feature from the companion app to have it tuned automatically according to the content you are listening to. For example, if you are watching a video, it will automatically switch the sound profile or when listening to a podcast. Additionally, you can also adjust the EQ manually if you like more control. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla While the sound is well balanced and suits almost every purpose, I also judge the call quality of earbuds as most tend to cheap out in this category. The Galaxy Buds Pro has an impressive set of microphones which delivers great voice audio quality on calls or even when capturing vlogs. Not many earbuds offer great microphones performance for calls but in the case of the Galaxy Buds Pro, you don’t need to worry on this front. The Final Say If you are looking for a great pair of ANC TWS earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro fits the bill quite well. With extensive features, great sound and a comfortable design, Samsung has nailed it out of the park with the Buds Pro. If you are a Samsung user, the Buds Pro will not be a disappointment and are the perfect accessory for your Galaxy smartphone. View the full article

  15. Essential, the smartphone company launched by Android co-creator Andy Rubin has now been sold to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. The Essential brand has now been acquired by UK based ‘Nothing’; Pei’s latest venture for consumer technology products. © Essential The news comes from a report by 9to5Google, which states that Nothing might be getting to smartphones considering Pei’s success with the OnePlus brand. We already know ‘Nothing’ will be launching wearables and smart devices in the near future and it seems like Essential’s acquisitor will make the ecosystem come full circle. © Nothing We still don’t know what Nothing will do with the Essential brand, however, the logical next step would be to launch smartphones. Now that Nothing owns all of Essential’s trademarks, logo and branding, we could soon see Essential smartphones. Nothing founder Carl Pei wants to bring back artistry and passion to consumer technology and with Essential’s design language that could very well be possible. © Essential Essential smartphone, the Ph-1 has been awarded in the past for having a great design and still remains a favourite amongst fans. Essential’s minimal design language and focus on bloat-free Android could be the reason why Pei opted to buy the brand’s intellectual property. Carl Pei started OnePlus with the same ethos and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see it carried forward with the Nothing brand. Having said that, it could also be possible that Pei was interested in the “Essential” nomenclature more than anything and probably wants to call one of the products with that name. Nothing is currently working on a pair of TWS earbuds according to rumours. We can’t really say when one can expect a smartphone from the Nothing or Essential brand. Nothing is expected to reveal something new very soon as suggested by the countdown on its website. Source: 9to5Google View the full article
  16. Poco has been making some compelling smartphones even though some might be rehashed versions of other models. However, its latest M3 model is by far the most unique looking and value for money smartphone available in India right now. The Poco M3 launched in India for Rs 10,999 and when comparing the specifications on board to other phones in the same category, the Poco M3 is hard to ignore. We’ve been using the smartphone for the past 10 days and here’s what we think about the latest budget offering: Design and Display Poco M3’s design is quite unique to its category as it comes with a distinct appearance that one can spot from afar. At the back, the smartphone has a massive rectangular camera module with elegant branding on the right side that somehow fits with the overall design of the phone. We’ve seen this before on the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk Edition and this looks almost identical. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The back of the phone also uses a plastic material that has a grainy texture to it. Had the phone used a plain plastic back, I wouldn't be much of a fan of the design, however the textured back does give the phone a slight premium feel. It's not on the same level as flagship phones, but the design is quite far ahead of other models in the same price category. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla At the front, the smartphone uses a water-drop cutout for the selfie camera which feels like a design choice from 2018. Most phones now use a punch-hole design and it feels like Poco M3 decided to use the leftover inventory of the water-drop displays to keep the price low. Much like the M2, the M3 also comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner on the power button which works fairly well and faster than in-display scanners. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The phone is available in three colours i.e. black, blue and yellow where the yellow models look most attractive to me judging from the pictures. I’ve been using the blue variant which also looks awesome as it is quite subtle and is not jarring to look at. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M3 uses a 1080 x 2340 pixels FHD+ LCD panel which is good enough for a budget-friendly smartphone. The screen may not offer deep blacks as an sAMOLED display but it still gets the job done. The overall experience of viewing content on social media and OTT apps is largely similar to most budget phones with a peak brightness level of 400 nits. The screen does a great job indoors but can be hard to use under direct sunlight. Colours seem fairly accurate for an LCD panel but can give that highly saturated look in certain videos. Overall, the display is decent to use for daily video consumption as it does not have any colour bleeding or any tinting problems. Camera © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M3 comes with a 48MP primary camera, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP Depth camera. I would have preferred an ultra-wide lens over a macro camera on the phone but for some reason, Poco decided to include the least used sensor on a smartphone instead. The camera app is fairly straightforward to use apart from a few modes that are buried between the menus such as Night Mode and Macro shots. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla The Poco M3’s camera performance is quite standard as it can take some decent shots when there is enough natural light. However, once you are indoors and do not have enough light coming in, the overall picture tends to lose details. The camera also takes slightly longer to focus on objects which can be a bit frustrating as a smartphone’s camera should work as a point and shoot device. Portrait images are fairly accurate thanks to the depth sensor as it managed to apply the bokeh effect quite accurately. It can detect objects as well which is quite handy and you can even adjust the level of a blur after taking a shot. The macro lens lets you take close up shots of objects but in my experience, the final image was quite blurry and did not have enough details to justify the feature. The image also comes out in a lower resolution which defeats the purpose of having a macro lens in the first place. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Capturing images in low light can be a bit of a pain as the camera app does take its sweet time in charting images. While using Night Mode, it takes particularly long to capture an image where you can find yourself waiting 3-4 seconds for the entire process to finish. There is noticeable grain and sometimes over-saturation which makes the final image not worth sharing on social media. Performance and Battery Life The Poco M3 for a budget phone runs exceptionally well when it comes to carrying out tasks like social media, internet browsing, navigation and instant messaging. You can easily multitask between apps even though it is slightly slower than what we expected. Having said that, the animations and overall scrolling experience do feel slower than previous Poco phones. © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla In our benchmark tests, the Poco M3 scored 312 (single-core) and 1254 (multi-core) on Geekbench 5. While this may not seem much in comparison to flagship phones, the score is appropriate in regards to how much the phone costs. Since the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 processor coupled with 6GB of RAM; it’s quite impressive to see how the phone scored considering its price. For gamers, the Poco M3 may not be the ideal smartphone to use to play competitive online games and RPGs like Genshin Impact. There are some frame rate drops in high graphic settings and the only way to enjoy games is by lowering the graphic settings. Additionally, the phone does throttle a bit and gets slightly warm around the camera module area. If you are looking to game on this smartphone, the Poco M3 is more suited for casual games that do not require much GPU power. The Poco M3 comes with a 6,000mAh battery that can easily last you 1.5 days on a single charge depending on your usage. The battery can also be fast-charged as it supports 18W PD fast charging that can fully charge the battery in about 2 hours. The Final Say The Poco M3, as a budget phone, gets everything done that you need from a smartphone. While some features do need improvement, it is still a compelling device to consider for Rs 10,999. The Poco M3 may not be the best at gaming or taking low-light images, it is still good enough for power users who use a phone for most use cases. The Poco M3 is the most unique looking smartphone in its category and does not disappoint when it comes to battery life. The Poco M3 also does not serve any ads in its user interface which makes the overall experience far less annoying as compared to Redmi smartphones. View the full article

  18. As India locked horns with England in the second test of the series at Chennai’s Chepauk stadium, captain Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first. The hosts got off to a shaky start as in the second over of the game, Shubman Gill was dismissed by Olly Stone. Following Gill’s dismissal, Rohit Sharma and Cheteshwar Pujara combined to steady the ship with an 85-run partnership for the second wicket. Rohit Sharma stole the limelight as he seemed completely unperturbed by the tricky wicket. In fact, Kohli echoed every Indian fan’s emotions, when he cheered for Rohit from the dressing room as the latter drove Stuart Broad for the first boundary of the Indian innings. Yes boy ! : Virat Kohli applauding Rohit Sharma 's glorious cover drive. #RohitSharma #INDvENG pic.twitter.com/4v7CAYz4KI — 🄿 ♚ (@Rarefieed) February 13, 2021 Kohli was seen screaming “Yes Boy” from the dressing room as Rohit Sharma scored the boundary to open his account from what seemed to be an overpitched delivery from Stuart Broad. Rumours of a rift between the Indian captain and the hitman have been doing the rounds since the past few years. These rumours first came to the fore during the 2017 Champions Trophy and during last year’s IPL. It was further fuelled by Rohit’s decision to head to India instead of going to Australia with the team. However, both the players have proven all is well between them with their actions on and off the pitch. Recently, Sharma congratulated Kohli on the latter becoming a father. And captain Kohli’s gesture in the dressing room proved again all is well between the two.

  19. It would be an understatement to say that FAU-G had a very rocky launch where it saw phenomenal installs and uninstalls at the same time. The game also saw a massive drop in ratings which is a clear sign of disappointment from Indian gamers. In fact, our time with the game was not what we expected either and noticed the game had a lot of missing content and was not up to the mark. Here’s the thing, just because the game is made in India, doesn’t mean we have to automatically like the game. There are other games that were made in India and have received worldwide acclaim such as Raji: An Ancient Epic. Having said that, there is still potential in FAU-G to turn around its fortunes and deliver a playable game in the near future if they improve mechanics and features. 1. Enemy AI © nCore Games The enemy AI in FAU-G is a joke at the moment where the player does not face any challenge in missions. Enemies aimlessly just melee attack the player which can be blocked with a tap on the screen easily. In fact, the only challenge players face is when they face multiple enemies at the same time which aren’t that difficult to defeat. 2. Difficulty Settings © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Since FAU-G is currently a single-player experience and the enemy AI does not pose any challenge, the game should have implemented multiple difficulty levels so that players could kill more time within the game and up the ante. Since there is only one mission to play at the moment, the game could also implement some form of achievement rewards such as cosmetics, badges and ranks if players can defeat the missions in higher difficulties and in different ways. 3. Add Guns © nCore Games Currently, you can only play as an Indian soldier who swings melee weapons at enemies. Even though the trailer featured an Indian soldier wielding and firing guns, they were nowhere to be found on launch day. In fact, it’s a classic case of false advertising to generate hype and fool Indian gamers to get the word going. However, the final game did not feature any guns whatsoever which annoyed many players. Yes, I was as baffled as you that an Indian soldier does not have access to guns to combat enemies in the game. It seems like the military theme was added in the game as an afterthought since there are no mechanics available as of now to support any sort of gunplay. 4. More Missions © MensXP/Akshay Bhalla Instead of releasing single missions at a time, nCore Games needs to release multiple story missions to keep players engaged in the game. The intention of every free-to-play mobile game is to have customers spend as much time in games as possible and in turn sell in-game items for profit. However, at the moment the game’s state has led to players simply uninstalling the game which is never a good sign. 5. Basic Mechanics © nCore Games Whether you want to accept it or not, basic gameplay mechanics such as movement, attacks, and blocking feels clunky and not as smooth as other mobile games from the genre. Smooth movement is essential for fast-paced games and in the case of FAU-G, animations feel like they were from a test build rather than a complete game. From the initial release of the game, it was clear that the game was rushed to capitalise on PUBG Mobile’s ban but in turn, sacrificed quality and content for a rushed January 26th release.

  21. If you ever thought India may never become like China for using censorship to monitor its citizens and press for expressing dissent, you might not be completely right. India wants to now recruit volunteers or informants to repot ‘anti-national’ social media posts on the internet which can be used against users who show dissent. © China Briefing According to a report by The Indian Express, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has already started testing the program where it asks citizens to report illegal content on the internet. The program entails volunteers to identify posts and content that included rape, child pornography, radicalization and anti-national activities. The Jammu & Kashmir police have already asked people to register as volunteers on the National Cybercrime Reporting portal. “Under this initiative, any Indian citizen can get himself/herself associated by registering in any of the three categories of Cyber Volunteer. Cyber Volunteer Unlawful Content Flagger- for identifying online illegal/unlawful content like child pornography, rape/gang rape, terrorism, radicalisation, anti-national activities etc. and reporting to government” the statement said to The Wire. © Reuters It is also worth pointing out that volunteers may have to upload a valid government ID in order to proceed with the programme. One can register as a cybercrime volunteer but it explicitly says that those who register cannot exploit it for commercial gain. The programme also prevents volunteers from publicly stating about their associations with the programme. Volunteers are “prohibited from using the name or claiming association with MHA on any public platform.” © Reuters While reporting of content including rape, child pornography, and radicalization should make the internet a safer place, it’s the ambiguous definition of “anti-national” activities that might be controversial in the near future. Since there is no legal definition of anti-national content or activity either by the government or the judiciary, this programme can be misused and social media posts expressing dissent could be misconstrued as “anti-national.” The other problem that might arise is the fact this programme gives citizens too much power over each other without any known repercussions for misusing the programme. There are also concerns that this program could be misused to promote censorship and encourage spying on individuals. In fact, these sort of restrictions and spying are akin to internet rules Chinese citizens are oppressed with daily. The Centre for Internet and Society has also pointed out in a recent journal that these practices might threaten the safety of people who express dissent against authorities.
