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

Aaptard wars: What Kejriwal’s supporters can learn from Modi and his bhakts

One of the great fallouts of the electoral battles of the last couple of years – from Delhi 2013 to Lok Sabha 2014 – has been the transformation of social media and comment boards into a Kurukshetra of sorts. #AAP #Arvind Kejriwal #BJP #Delhi #Delhi Assembly Election 2015 #InMyOpinion #Internet #Narendra Modi #Subramaniam Swamy #Trolling #Twitter

Mamata Banerjee’s support for AAP: Just what Arvind Kejriwal does not need

Didi’s support, as other ‘beneficiaries’ of that support from Manmohan Singh to Atal Behari Vajpayee have learned, can come with quite a sting in the tail. #Arvind Kejriwal #Mamata backs Kejriwal #Mamata Banerjee #TMC support for AAP #Trinamool #Trinamool Congress

Kabhi Khushi Kabhi gay: Not Arjun or Ranveer, the real roast on AIB Knockout was Karan Johar

We've come a long way from coy Kanta bai jokes when Karan Johar gets up on stage and makes top-to-bottom gay sex jokes. AIB actually broke new ground not just in vulgar Adult-rated comedy but in treating gay sex with the same bawdy humour it reserved for the other kind of sex. #AIB #All India Bakchod #Arjun Kapoor #Karan Johar #Ranveer Singh
