Emergency – 2

1. No state government 2. A state converted to UT under president rule 3. Army deployed in civilian areas 4. Politicians arrested 5. All communications are blocked 6. State rules modified without the people of the state participating 7. No opposition to support people If we are not in emergency then what are we in? Just like Emergency – 1. This will have long term effects on how Indian Constitution holds its integrity. India lost a part of its soul today.

The biggest event in all 50 states

Every state has that one event that everyone either looks forward to or gets the hell out of town for — that festival, parade, or sporting event that draws people from all over the world and is a great time if you go but an even better time to leave and rent out your house. For travelers though, these events are some of the best ways to experience a city. Some of them are household names, stuff like Burning Man or the Kentucky Derby or New Year’s Eve in NYC. But even the big events in smaller...

The only Longhorns in Austin are UT students and if you spot anyone in a cowboy hat anywhere but at a honky-tonk bar, you can pretty much guarantee they’re from out of town. We’re not only about BBQ. Photo: Apis The Austin foodie culture is thriving, from Indian cuisine at the Clay Pit to brunch from a food truck like Biscuits and Groovy to fine dining at Apis Restauran...

AUSTIN has good weather almost year-round and there’s no shortage of great outdoor adventures in and near the city. 1. Take a hike.

24 struggles of living in Texas

Photo: Jeremy Keith There’s no question why anyone would choose to live in Texas: we’re really big, we have the best BBQ – screw you Kansas City – and all our residents are loud and proud. I was born and raised in Dallas, went to the Hill Country for holidays, and attended the University of Texas at Austin (go Longhorns!). Through this time, I’ve had the experience of growing up in the suburbs of the Lone Star State and seeing what makes Texans tick. We’re not all characters in Dallas (the TV...

Texan locals want you to know...

Photo: Autumn Barns 1. We don’t all have accents. …or wear cowboy hats or ride horses or talk like hicks. We don’t all fit into your Hollywood movie stereotypes. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to polish off this bottle of cab and finish binge-watching Stranger Things. 2. Yes, it really does take that long to drive across Texas. Texans do not rely heavily on public transport. Sure, the bus system is up and running in many major cities, and DART is expanding across Dallas, but by and large w...
