Sushma Swaraj not mentioning Nehru at 60th NAM Summit is just BJP being petty

In Bandung, Nehru is not a Congress leader and Sushma Swaraj is not a BJP Foreign Minister.

Paintings of ‘gopis’ in bikinis to banners protesting diktats: Bechara freedom of expression in India

The fact that Akram Hussain's painting is mediocre is besides the point. Freedom of expression extends to mediocre paintings and stupid speech as well. #Akram Hussain #BJP #Charlie Hebdo #CriticalPoint #Freedom of Expression #India #Krishna in bar #MF Husain #Nana Chudasama #painting #Shaina NC

A coming of age film of a horny teenager, only in a wheelchair: Shonali Bose on Margarita With A Straw

Margarita with a Straw should not have been an easy film to watch. It’s about disability, coming out, loss, discrimination, feminism. But there’s something vulnerable at its core that lights the film up with unexpected charm. #Kalki Koechlin #Margarita with A Straw #Shonali Bose #VeryCloseUp
