Pinned toot

Hi, I'm Persis. I work on urban governance and have lots of thoughts/feelings (increasingly unable to differentiate between the two) on democratic processes.

As a baby of the 90s, I have an attachment to secularism, multiculturalism and diversity so let's make them a reality ok?

I'll slowly add a list of publications to this toot, but know that I do NOT LOOK LIKE THE ONE PARSI AUNTY who married into your family. ok?

I don't mean azad Kashmir, but all non-cow belt states (barring maybe Karnataka which seems to like this new government) will become countries.

We need to dig the submissions and deliberations made by Shri Krishna Committee on community data. At the Hyderabad open house I did mention it with him and the panel. Govt must make them public

CAB and the internet shutdowns will only revive the calls for sovereignty from India. The centre cannot hold this expanse of land for long without cooperation.

Is it just me or do we all wonder what KC Sivaramakrishnan would have said about the misuse of the role of the governor in India?

Read 's profile in the guardian late because MaharashtraPolitics be putting me in strasss!

is there is a relationship between my government pushing for autocracy and my viewing of self-care videos? Is my failing democracy financing the skin care industry?

If the court doesn't exercise it's powers of judicial review, then people like them will continue to play fraud upon the constitution. It has happened before, is happening now and will continue to happen if the court doesn't interfere. First, Karnataka, then Kashmir, and now Maharashtra. What is this if not a misuse of constitutional office?
