When Harsh Mander speaks about the administrative response to communal violence he speaks with authority. In 1984, as a young Additional Collector in Indore he called in the Army, imposed curfew the violence was quelled in 6 hours.

Today, my daughter proudly told me that she'd learnt by heart the first paragraph of Sia's Cheap Thrills. She has exams in two weeks and she can't remember her English poems🙄

Modi not playing Holi because he’s mourning the dead in the horrible carnage in Delhi.

Lol no. Just kidding. That was his Holi. He’s just afraid of Coronavirus.

Bernie Sanders is a Jew

Bernie Sanders is a fierce & trenchant critic of Israeli treatment of Palestinians

Bernie Sanders is attacked as an “antisemite”

Bernie Sanders is NOT an “antisemite”; not even a tiny bit

Do you see how it works?

Shame. The right of a person to be heard by the court is not predicated on the person's faith in the court. What a fucking joke. twitter.com/ANI/status/1235095
