Taste bhi, health bhi? Betrayal by Maggi has broken our good Indian hearts

In a socialist India where Coca Cola was forbidden and we wore rip-off Lavis jeans, Maggi in 1983 felt almost like cosmopolitanism in a packet. It was bright, it was perky, it was fast. #Amitabh Bachchan #Bottom of Pyramid #Coca-Cola #Lead in Maggi #Madhuri Dixit #Maggi #Maggi Controversy #Nestle India #Preity Zinta

Promoting Hindutva ideology? Modi’s Mathura rally is a step towards a larger goal

By making the trip to Mathura, Narendra Modi is not just paying his respects to Deen Dayal Upadhyay as he is perfectly entitled to do, but also signaling one more step in a far more ambitious project of setting the new ideological normal. #Akbar the Great #Deen Dayal Upadhyay #Hindutva #Maharana Pratap #Mathura #Narendra Modi #Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay #OneYearofModi #PoliticalPlay #RSS

#NotIndiasPride: India is way bigger than the UPA and PM Modi is not its Moses

Most of his missteps have been made abroad. Novelist Jhumpa Lahiri once commented how her parents would seem to grow in size and confidence when they set foot in India and shrink to more colourless selves back in the US. Narendra Modi, curiously, appears to swell in size every time he sets foot on foreign soil. That’s when he really feels the force is with him. ##ModiIndiasPride ##ModiInsultsIndia #Modi in Seoul #Narendra Modi #NotIndiasPride #Raghuram Rajan #Seoul
