Modi govt vs Priya Pillai: Insanity of the ‘doodh mein makkhi’ theory

One can make endless fun of the government’s Red Queen-like capriciousness, but the jokes begin to wear thin when we recognise why the words ‘mad’ and ‘dictator’ go so well together.

That our government can so willfully and ludicrously wield power is no laughing matter, after all. #APPG #Delhi HC #doodh mein makhi #Greenpeace #Home Ministry #Priya Pillai #UK

#IRunBedi: Kiran Bedi’s Times Now interview proves she’s right not to debate with Kejriwal

Let's face it: Kiran Bedi is a loose cannon with loose lips. She has a tendency to babble and veer constantly off subject and script, at times with unfortunate results. #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Delhi Assembly Election 2015 #kiran bedi #Lokpal #OnOurMind #Ram leela #Times Now interview

Snickering at Hindutva science: Why it feels good, and why it’s self-defeating

Why do we feel compelled to not just laugh but deride — and at length — every such instance of Hindutva delusion? Wherefore that delicious feeling of self-satisfaction that descends upon us when any such story becomes front page news? #Hindtuva #Hindutva science #HowThisWorks #Lord Ganesha #mythology #Sanskrit
