    Byju’s & WhiteHat Jr – A Peek Inside India’s Education SCAM 

    WhiteHat Jr. is an education scam invented by an Indian scumbag named Karan Bajaj.
    From now henceforth we will refer to him as scumbag Karan.

    In 2020, WhiteHat Jr. was acquired by another Indian named Byju Raveendran.
    We will refer to him as scumbag Byju aka tutulputul the billionaire in this article.

    What is Byju’s? Byju’s is an educational scam invented by Mr tutulputul billionaire here to scam people.
    The Byju’s scampire is so big, that it has various subsidiaries, one of them being WhiteHat Jr.

    Now the following leaks are so sensitive, that Mr tutulputul billionaire has been suing everyone who exposes his scamducation empire.

    Byju the tutulputul billionaire has sued two critics named Pradeep Poonia and Aniruddha Malpani for an insane amount of money.

    So what’s wrong with WhiteHat Jr?
    Well, I checked the site and it’s a typical Indian coding website that interesting enough, shows curriculum package priced in British Pounds!
    £ 139 /Month (Price Per Class £ 17), for Advance Coding with Space Tech

    If you look at the linked document above, apparently, kids in grades 10 – 12 can learn stuff like K-Means clustering and Machine Learning: Regression.
    Now I’m no computer genius, but doesn’t this stuff sound like something that would be taught in Universities?

    The tag-line under “Applied Tech Curriculum” states “Build AI-ready applications in the field of SpaceTech, BioTech, and Automobile”.

    And the achievements under the “Advance Coding with Space Tech”, which, let’s not forget, is for kids in grades 10-12, are “Deep Learning Applications and Top 1% Silicon Valley Mentorship.”

    Meanwhile the achievements for the “Data Analytics Certification” are “Data Science – Predictive Analysis certificate and Space Tech”

    At the bottom of their page, I see this:

    I’m confused.
    Scumbag Byju the tutulputul billionaire has finally managed to confuse me!

    Are these courses for kids or for grown men?
    ‘Cause I just linked the curriculum above and that shit looks like a University curriculum!
    And if these kids can build “AI-ready applications in the field of SpaceTech, BioTech, and Automobile”, then me, all my homies and the entire global hackerspace is out of a job, forever.

    Oh I’m going all in on this one!
    I’m going to break down their website word-for-word.

    Whitehat Jr has been featured in CNBC TV18, YOUR STORY, TechCrunch, and Business Standard.
    Now you know which media not to trust.

    Now according to this news article, WhiteHat Jr has been shwing ads of a 12-year-old kid (or 13-year-old) named Wolf Gupta who learnt AI to get Rs 1.2 crore job. WHAT THE FUCK IS A CRORE?
    According to the internet, 1 crore is 10M.
    Indians need to stop using the word crore. It’s fucking confusing and annoying.
    Anyway, this kid here learnt AI and earns 12M rupees from Google.
    That’s like $164,592.
    Wowowowowow! Somebody’s getting paid more than an Apple engineer! And it just happens to be a 12 year old! LOL

    Here’s another article that goes into the details of similar ads by Mr tutulputul’s education scampire.

    Now according to this article, and this one, YouTube, LinkedIn, Reddit, Quora and Twitter have aided WhiteHat Jr in censoring critics and suspending their accounts multiple times.

    But guess what?
    Now the news has crossed the corporate borders and into the free internet.
    THIS IS THE ANARCHIST INTERNET!
    Youtube, Twitter, LinkedOut, Reddit and Quora have no power here!

    Now I checked a few news articles and I saw this:

    Like Poonia, Malpani was also restrained from making defamatory commentary against WhiteHat Jr and its employees by the Delhi High Court.

    Unfortunately, the New Dehli High Court has no jurisdiction over here. Billioniare Byjus tutulputul and his scumbag failed writer Bajaj will have to shove their restraining orders up their hairy buttholes.
    ‘Cause when I’m done with the formal investigation, I’m going to have a few words for their mommas and grandmas who ain’t got no teeth!

    There’s nothing I hate more than censorship, especially when it’s a corporate rich jackass silencing the truth!

    Here’s a video which shows one of WhiteHat Jr’s student scamming other students to enroll so they can win a free macbook!

    Here’s a video of a parent grilling a WhiteHat Jr salesman.
    From the video above, it looks like WhiteHat Jr website has changed some details.
    Perhaps that’s in response to all the criticism.

    Here’s a video of a clueless chef endorsing the Indian scamducation.

    Here’s an idiot endorsing WhiteHat Jr’s scam. They’ve posted multiple videos of this guy on their channel. Perhaps they figured out that he’s just as dumb as he played in the movie.

    WhiteHat Jr’s website advertizes the following about it’s teachers.

    Our Expert Coding Educators
    teacher-step
    Top 1% teachers selected by an industry leading 4-step teacher assessment process By top 1% of the early childhood coding experts
    WhiteHat Jr follows a rigorous 4-Step Selection Process for confirming teacher candidates so your kids are taught by the Top Early Childhood Coding Experts.

    Aaaaand here’s a video of one of these “expert coding instructors” who apparently makes up India’s top 1% teachers!

    If these are the kind of teachers who exist in India, it’s no wonder that the entire country runs on scams. ‘Cause the kids don’t learn jackshit in school. In order to survive, they join scammy companies to scam other people.

    Here’s a video revealing the work culture of Mr Byju’s tutulputul billionaire education scampire. This is the kind of work environment a new recuit has to face! In my opinion, the excellency of work culture is only established when the manager tells a new employee that he’s going to rip his asshole apart.

    Here’s another video of Byju’s manager insulting one of his scampire sales minion.

    Here’s another video in which both the manager and saleman are fighting for Mr Byju’s tutul putul education scam.
    The focus is only on REVENUE.
    The manager is frustrated because he’s also hearing from his superiors. He’s now taking his frustration out on his minion saleman and is almost on the verge of crying.
    He only wants NUMBERS. NUMBERS OF NAIVE INDIAN PARENTS WHO THEY SCAMMED. The company sets TARGETS for every saleman to achieve. The TARGETS is a FIXED NUMBER of Indian families who they have to call and scam until they enroll their poor kids into Byju’s education scam. The manager repeatedly says he only cares about REVENUE, nothing else.

    I’m just going to link these channels below. If anyone wants to spend more time looking into it.
    Pradeep Poonia 1.0

    Pradeep Poonia 3.0

    Okay!
    After a thorough review of WhiteHat Jr, Byju’s treatment of it’s employees and scumbag Karan’s attempt to censor the internet, where do I begin?

    I don’t want to begin.
    Doing this investigation brought my blood to a boiling point.
    So I’m going to end this one here, before billionaire Byju and scumbag Karan shit their pants and start crying like a bunch of lil bitches and classify this article as online bullying.
    I’m not going to insult their mommas, or their grandmommas; but I sure wish they’d swallowed that night. Hell, don’t you?

    I think this case study clearly shows the dangers of capitalism and the kind of shit that happens when corporate jackasses take over the education system.
    Is this the future Indians envision for their kids?
    No wonder every Indian dreams of getting the hell out that country. It’s a shithole. With shitty people who lack any morals or ethics to begin with. Oh they brag about religion or pretend to be religious, but this kind of stuff really shines the light into the Indian world.

    What I’d really like to know is if Billionaire Byju’s mom is goin’ to disown him after hearing all the crap her son’s been up to.
    Or if Kerry Bajaj would consider divorcing her scumbag husband who’s a disgrace to humanity.
    There’s a lot of spiritual bullshit on scumbag Bajaj’s website. His about page mentions “dharma” but his actions show that he’s adharma personified.
    Wait – I retract that. “My dharma is to be in business” – looks like this jackass knows jackshit about religion. He’s into business – the business of scamming innocent Indian parents and coercing them into signing up for the bullshit courses on WhiteHat Jr site where the teachers think the cloud is “imaginary” and data and information is stored in an “imaginary place”.

    Well, Karan Bajaj, this article is also imaginary since it’s stored in the “imaginary” cloud.
    I hope that’ll help you to sleep better.

    Tech Companies: The Fad Of Going Green 

    Last year, Apple dropped the bomb on their fanbase that they wouldn’t be shipping the chargers and earpods along with their new iPhones.

    “Apple is also removing the power adapter and EarPods from iPhone packaging, further reducing carbon emissions and avoiding the mining and use of precious materials, which enables smaller and lighter packaging, and allows for 70 percent more boxes to be shipped on a pallet.”

    Now how much of this is true?
    None of it. I’ll explain why in a bit.

    This year, Samsung announced that they wouldn’t be shipping their new phone with a charger either.
    The same company that was mocking Apple for not including chargers with their phones is now copying that move.
    Why?
    Is it because they’re also “reducing carbon emissions and avoiding the mining and use of precious materials”?

    A few years ago, when Apple removed the head jack from their phones in the interest of saving space and making “technlogical progress”, Samsung and other companies made fun of them.
    We all know this was a load of crap because they were simply pushing consumers to buy their wireless earpods.
    Lo and behold! Samsung and the other companies did the same shit.

    Here’s the truth; and everybody knows this, but nobody’s saying or doing anything because they’re blinded consumers – tech companies don’t give a rat’s ass about the environment.
    It’s all about the profits – how can we make more money from the consumers? That’s what they’re thinking.

    Any company that really wanted to make progress by going green, would design phones with a modular design. All upgrades would be made by simply replacing individual modules.
    Such a phone would last for decades.
    Customers would spend less money each year, and tech companies would actually be helping the environment.
    But y’know what the problem is? The problem is that these companies wouldn’t be making a lot of profits.
    Their highest revenue would be the year they sold the phones, and after that, profits would trickle down to a minimum as customers would only buy individual modules when needed.
    Now there’s a phone that comes to mind when I said this: the Fairphone.
    Now I read about the Fairphone a long time ago, back in 2013, when they launched their first phone.
    Within a span of 7 years, Fairphone has only released 4 models. And I think that’s commendable, considering that Apple, Samsung and other phone companies release dozens of phones every year.

    If Apple gave two shits about the environment, the iPhone would’ve been designed like the Fairphone and a new model released every 5 years.
    I’ve had a smartphone for 5 years and it still works like a champ.
    Now when I got my phone, the Fairphone 2 was out. And I wish I’d asked for a Fairphone instead of a Samsung.
    On the positive side, I’ve treated my Samsung the same way I’d have treated my Fairphone. I rooted it and installed custom ROMs all the way through. In fact, mine’s now running a personalized custom ROM with Android 10.
    Another consideration is that my Samsung cost like 230 bucks while the Fairphone 2 cost 635 bucks. So, there’s that.
    Now I feel better about owning my crappy Samsung. The price matters.

    Anyway, Apple, Samsung and all the other companies have gone in the opposite direction of the Fairphone.
    While the Fairphone was modular by design, one can’t even open the back of an iPhone to replace the battery.
    Everything is soldered onto the motherboard, except for the battery and the cameras.
    If you wannna see how crappy phone designs with respect to going green, check out Zack aka JerryRigEverything’s channel on YouTube.

    What’s the deal with releasing a new phone every year?
    Like how much tech progress could you make in a year?

    While we’re discussing soldering, can we talk about laptops?
    These days, a lot of laptops have soldered memory. That means you can’t even upgrade the memory.
    And almost all laptops these days come with an internal battery. You can’t just slide and pop the battery out like my HP Pavilion from the last decade.

    There was a time when laptops were modular. You could replace the battery, swap the hard drive, replace the keyboard, screen, almost everything, with relative ease. That’s what old Thinkpads are famous for.

    Remember the days when laptops were rugged, made of strong plastic or aluminium? They were chunky bricks designed to stand the test of time.
    They could last a decade.

    How long does an average laptop last these days?
    With all the soldered memory and sealed design, I doubt they’re used for more than 3 years.

    Consumerism is on the rise, and it has been propelled by Tech companies like Apple and Samsung. Instead of releasing products that would last a long duration, they design products that hardly last a year before they have problems. That way, the consumer is forced to buy the new one when it’s released.

    I’ve read stories of Apple intentionally slowing down old phones to make consumers buy new ones.

    Look at the Apple repair costs on the Apple website.
    It costs more than my phone to repair an iPhone.

    What was Apple’s annual revenue for 2020?
    How did they make that money? By screwing over the consumers? By screwing over the workers in Apple factories?

    I look at the Macbook prices and it’s disgusting.
    I could get a similarly spec’d laptop for half the price.

    Anyway, there’s the article. Apple sucks. Samsung sucks. And anyone who buys into this “going green” bullshit has a very low IQ.

    My Samsung’s going to last another couple of years. But when I do get around to buying another phone, if I ever do, it’ll be something along the lines of Fairphone or whatever phone that comes at the right price with a modular design.
