I have asked my family to tweet the following on my behalf:

When Parliament opens today, must lead the Opposition to expose the utter mismanagement of the economy.

Why scholars were impeded from taking their voice beyond campus & marching peacefully?
Now, they've been warned to either disperse or face action. We condemn such heavy-handedness of state, bruising & detaining of students, for marching towards Parliament. Such harsh measures to thwart, exercise of constitutionally guaranteed democratic rights, is extremely unfortunate! Those against public education, have no right to stop demands of the students.

I've suspended God, for being a misogynistic reply guy.


Ruchir Joshi on the cost of cowardice. Lovely reflection on power and corrupt regimes:

"We must never make the mistake of imagining that a person we think of as completely evil will always stay so there may be a limit to the wavering and change someone is capable of, but a small pulsation in one person or a group in a direction away from gross criminality may have a knock-on effect on others who are, lets say, closer to the middle in the scale of bad-to-good..."
