Some 'apolitical' Delhi folks saying they will be so embarrassed if Manoj Tiwary becomes their CM. It's weird because they r never embarassed Modi is their PM. For many middle class ppl, a guy implicated in riots &fake encounters is palatable but eww a Bhojpuri filmstar so uncool

A is having issues with B.

B is brutally beating A red and blue.

C comes to defend A.

A is saved.

B is bad by nature, they beat me always I have no issues but you 5th generation dynast, pain my ass is because of you. A said to C!

Nothing related to Ram Guha & Rahul Gandhi.

Bhima Koregaon is a symbol of long history of Dalit warriorship social mobility

It is a tragic irony that today Bhima Koregaon stands reduced not just before Dalits, but before the nation — between Brahmanical rule and colonial rule

Shaheen Bagh continues to resist, like every day.
Whilst rumours are rampant, at this juncture, we request everyone to cross check before they share any information.

Don't panic. It's all normal.
You know where we are.
Come, join us. Be in solidarity.

In those days, protest seemed to most a right.

Everyone at the Anna protests felt safe.

It was the heart of a throbbing democracy, as it were.

In retrospect, one realises the democratic depth of the Manmohan Singh era.

The haste in passing CAA

First bigotry. Second hubris. Since did not offer any dissent at abrogation of Article 370 or at Babri Judgement, this time, too, they would meekly accept this humiliation of CAA heaped on them by their own govt.

“When you make four-hour exposures in the middle of the night, you inevitably slow down and begin to observe and appreciate more what’s going on around you. In our fast-paced, modern world, it’s a luxury to be able to watch the stars move across the sky.” – Michael Kenna

I've had people demand that I name people who have abused or as above, been toxic to me, because 'I should prevent it happening to others'. Your safety is not my responsibility. Human beings aren't universal villains. It's up to you to figure out who is valuable to you and who isn't. Be responsible for your own emotional health, please.

I’m not a fan of Pratap Bhanu Mehta, but here he comes to point quickly-

“The current political regime cannot exist unless it finds a new enemy. It now legitimises itself, not by its positive accomplishments, but by using the enemy as a rallying point”
