From Smriti Irani to Kanimozhi: Sharad Yadav’s ‘compliments’ are as sexist as his jibes

Sharad Yadav, the veteran politician has been a misogynist's gift that keeps on giving. His latest comments about the complexion of women are hardly that astonishing. #Dusky Comments #HowThisWorks #Kanimozhi #parliament #Sexist MPs #Sharad Yadav #Smriti Irani

RIP Suzette Jordan: All she had ever wanted was to dance

But if anyone epitomised rape survivor rather than victim it was Suzette. She had a zest for life that showed through all the anger and sadness and pain of her story. #InMemoriam #Kolkata rape #Park street gangrape #rape survivor #Suzette Jordan

Note to Tina Brown: Aamir Khan is cool, but how about a real activist for Women of World summit?

Khan is clearly a smart, thoughtful man who thinks a lot about how he wants to fashion his life beyond the next blockbuster. #Aamir Khan #Dangal #Masterchef India #Tina Brown #Vegan #Women of the World

In Memoriam: Suzette Jordan on her battle to stop being the ‘Park street rape victim’

Rape makes news but the grueling aftermath often wreaks a whole other trauma. #Barasat rape #Discrimination against women #Kolkata #Mamata Banerjee #Park Street rape victim #Suzette Jordan #VeryCloseUp #Violence against women

What will people say: Why India is up in arms over the Dec 16 BBC documentary

BBC documentary on Delhi gangrape: Why outrage? Mukesh Singh’s excuses are hardly unique

Our outrage becomes a way to blind ourselves to the larger outrage of a culture and society that is quick to blame the victim for what she wore, what she ate, and when she went out. Singh might be unrepentant but at least he is paying for his crimes. The rest of us so cavalier about blaming the victim for bringing it on themselves escape unscathed. #16 December #BBC #December 16 gangrape #Delhi rape #Mukesh Singh #Rape #Rape in India #Rapist #Sexual violence in India

What censor board members want: Slash Haider, no films for adults, only ‘family’ films

Thanks to the Indian Express we now know what the current avatars on the Censor Board think about art, freedom of expression and culture.

More yawn than firestorm: Essar ‘scandal’ is hardly a Radiagate

But more than anything else the current reaction to the Essar scam shows us how inured we have become to scams. #BJP Chief Nitin Gadkari #Digvijaya Singh #Essar #Essargate #HowThisWorks #India #Indian Express #Niira Radia #Politics
