Hello, I am Don Quixote masquerading as Ayush, Jack of all trades, Master of None.

I am a Web Developer working at an IT firm in India. But, my primary skills are not in development but in something I don't have a name for (Or at least I don't know yet.) . I am deeply involved in Politics and like to be aware about things happening around me which as a citizen of my country affects me and my country. Reading NEWS and all sort of information floating around always is my Super Power. 

In my quest to know everything about Politics in India, I came across several instances of the various Propaganda tricks played out by Political Parties in my country. The most important one was the case of Fake NEWS. I started to find NEWS that was false and put it on my website. As I read and read further, I came to know how Fake NEWS is just a medium of spreading Propaganda. The real issue is to educate people on how propaganda works and is spread and how we can stop getting fooled because of this. To make people Think, Act and Civilize.
