Thank you to @srinivasiyc@twitter.com and his team for their life-saving work in the absence of the state.

Replug, since this column has aged well.

The BJP's fake nationalism is not India first, or even Modi first--it's the myth of Modi first. It will cling to power first at the cost of truth, and ultimately at the cost of the country.

Government of India, putting the bharta back in Atmanirbharta

RT @TheQuint@twitter.com

"India’s ‘Atmanirbharta’ wouldn’t have been hurt if India had used its vast cash reserves to place large orders from vaccines makers from around the world, not now, when they have no supplies to give, but back in 2020," writes @vaishalisood@twitter.com.

Please amplify this crowdsourced info— it's verified. You could save a life!

Note: this is about O2 concentrators NOT cylinders.

Is this meant to uplift spirits? When people die en masse, when there is grief? When century-old trees are being uprooted and Delhi's most iconic public gathering site bulldozed to make way to a PM's vanity project? twitter.com/PreetiChoudhry/sta
