The great Rahul Gandhi leave: Five questions to help him ‘reflect’ on the future of Congress

It’s not difficult to see what ails the Congress. It’s just surprising Rahul needs to go away for a few weeks to see the writing on the wall that has been staring at him in the face election after election. #Congress #India #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Narendra Modi #Politics #Priyanka Gandhi #Rahul Gandhi #sabbatical #UPA

Who will arrest the police? Don’t just blame the beedi baron for the security guard’s death

The story of Adakkaparambil Muhammad Nisham has all the elements we are used to. The rich spoiled tycoon used to getting away with everything perhaps even murder is almost a standard trope these days. But it’s shocking even in a country where life, especially of the poor, routinely feels cheap. #Asaram Bapu #Chandrabose #Jessica Lal #Kerala #Mohammed Nisham #NewsTracker #ThatsJustWrong

PM Modi’s suit fetches Rs 1.25 cr: But will charity wash away the vanity?

It’s commendable that Modi's pinstriped suit is not going to just hang in some closet, no longer used though not forgotten. India might be a little cleaner thanks to it but just because it now has a new charitable avatar does not mean it wipes the slate clean of its original vanity. That remains written all over it. #bandhgala #Charity #Ganga #InMyOpinion #Modi #Narendra Modi #pinstriped suit #vanity

Kejriwal borrowed tips from bête noire Modi : The two are soul brothers under the skin

The Muffler Man and the ten-lakh-rupee suit might be cut from very different cloth but their styles of functioning are starting to look eerily similar. #Amit Shah #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Mann Ki Baat #Narendra Modi #Politics #Yogendra Yadav

Indian grandfather assaulted in Alabama: Why Hinduism 101 for US cops won’t help

To be fair, even if the caller thought Patel was “black”, the police officer clearly asks Patel if he is Indian. But that just means this could be even more a moment when two communities can discover that they are in the same boat. #Alabama #America #Asia #South #Sureshbhai Patel

Assault on Indian man in Alabama: Sad comment on nation built by immigrants

Jnanpith award winner Bhalchandra Nemade recently stirred up a hornet’s nest by calling English a "killer language". But thousands of miles away across the world in Alabama, Sureshbhai Patel discovered that the lack of English can be even more dangerous. #Alabama #American police #Driving while brown #Racism #Sureshbhai Patel #ThatsJustWrong #United States #US

Freedom to be crude and petty: Why AIB’s roast and Salman Rushdie tweet matter

Let’s be clear about one thing about freedom of expression. It ain’t pretty. It never was and it never will be. #Aamir Khan #AIB #AIB roast #Bhalchandra Nemade #Salman Rushdie

Dear AAP: Landslide Delhi election victory does not a national party make

No matter how much the election results sting the BJP, there should be no illusion that Kejriwal has suddenly been catapulted as an alternative to Modi. #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Congress #Delhi #Delhi Assembly Election 2015 #India #Mamata Banerjee #Mayawati #PoliticsDecoder
