My resolution for this year is to read more. Fellow tooters, please recommend books for me to read. I'm going to keep an open mind about genre right now (though sci fi, romance and chick lit are very low down on my list). I'll see how many I can read, and ping you back once I finish.

1. SCOOP: Day before the Modi Govt said that the #CitizenshipAmendmentAct is an "internal matter of India", the MHA said in response to my RTI, "disclosure of such information may prejudicially affect relation with foreign states". What is the MHA hiding? http://bit.ly/2uUxrxz
@Samridd08113789@twitter.com @email@example.com Muslims are minorities in the three countries I mentioned, will you be okay with the version of CAA written by me . Just like current one, this one only includes PERSECUTED religion
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.

The last few years have been an eye opener and how https://twitter.com/ParomaMukherjee/status/1234679387540185098
The patience and perseverance of Kashmiris can be gauged by the consistent attempts to Skype video call overseas on a 2G internet at 2:00 am.
How can you possibly expect them to give up, when all their lives, they've been trained to not give up?
Sakshi Joshi has lost it.
Modi not playing Holi because he’s mourning the dead in the horrible carnage in Delhi.
