#PachauriHatao: For TERI, the reinstatement is more a moral than legal question

Or, perhaps they were too sure that the victim’s claim in the case was bogus and that Pachauri would come clean in the case eventually. #ConnectTheDots #Delhi #moral vacuum #Pachauri sexual harassment #RK pachauri #Sexual harassment #TERI

Nursery admission: If you have felt insulted as a parent, then demand big change in the education system

If you are a parent and have tried to secure admission for your child to any private school in Delhi, let alone a nursery school, you know how harrowing the experience is. #AAP government #Delhi #HowThisWorks #Kejriwal #Management quota #Nursery Admissions #School education

Racism in Bengaluru: Why govt’s ostrich-like approach won’t work

Karnataka’s home minister G Parameshwara would have us believe that the assault on the Tanzanian student in Bengaluru was no racial attack. #African Students #Bengaluru racist attack #InMyOpinion #Karnataka #racial discrimination #Tanzanian student

MCD mess and battle of egos: Why Delhi civic body workers must insist on solution, not compromise

What the present situation requires is a mature approach from all involved. Both parties have shown they are incapable of it. The Congress, which is partly responsible for the crisis, has escaped flak as the other two are busy running each other down. Will the AAP call for an all-party meet to discuss the issue and find a conclusion to the issue? Looks impossible. #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Congress #Delhi #InMyOpinion #Municipal Corporation of Delhi #Politics

Mr PM, create an NREGA for the urban jobless too, and ignore those suit-boot economists

It is imperative now that the government expands it to urban areas, if not in the exact form maybe in some other. #InMyOpinion #MGNREGA #Narendra Modi #Rahul Gandhi #Rural economy #Urban India

What must be borne in mind about IPC’s Section 377: Rapists, not homosexuals, are real threat to society

The argument in defence of Section 377 is crude and a load of nonsense. It has no legs to stand on. The passionate position that it must continue because otherwise India will turn into a playground of sexual perverts is just overstretched imagination. #ConnectTheDots #curative petition #LGBTQI #LGBTQI Rights #Section 377 #Supreme Court

Shani Shinganapur Temple, Haji Ali and now Section 377: These mini revolts keeping hopes alive

As the Supreme Court decides on the curative petition on Article 377, these fundamental questions will weigh heavy on the minds of those on the bench. #Haji Ali #Haji Ali Dargah #HowThisWorks #LGBT community #shani temple #Shingnapur Shani temple #Supreme Court

The unending AAP-BJP farce: Cynical politics gone too far, Delhiites it’s time to get angry

Send this message loud and clear to both the AAP and the BJP: stop this nonsense now. We already had too much of your tu tu mein mein. If don’t mend your ways get ready to be punished. #Aam Aadmi Party #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Delhi #InMyOpinion #Manish Sisodia #MCD Strike #New Delhi

Smart cities: I am feeling smart already, are you?

Smart city is a wonderful concept, forget those calling it an urban utopia, a real estate grab initiative similar to SEZs, an exercise meaning nothing more than fine-tuning services of municipalities through high technology and what not. #Business #Economy #Infrastructure #InMyOpinion #Narendra Modi #smart city mission #Venkaiah Naidu

A bit of humour to humanise govt-public equations won’t hurt: Why Mumbai police’s tweets are what we need

Humour humanises, and a bit of it in life doesn’t hurt anyone. Thank Mumbai Police for reminding us that. Thank it again for sending out the subtle message that all government communication need not have majesty and authority written all over. #Funny tweets #Government #government offices #Mumbai Police #Public Servants #ThingsWeLike
