Clear as Madh: Hotel raids to porn ban, the nanny state fuses with moral police

The Mumbai raid raises far more disturbing visions of the midnight knock that can also come at midday or 3pm as it did in Madh Island. #ConnectTheDots #Homosexuality #Madh island #Mumbai #Mumbai Police #party #PornBan #privacy #Rakesh Maria #Supreme Court

Lalit Modi row: Sushma Swaraj’s case will weaken by playing the gender card in this soap opera

With wrenching details about how the cancer had relapsed for the tenth time, and melodramatically blaming her own stars, Sushma tried to turn the saga that embroils her into a three-hanky sob story bound to melt the stoniest heart. And then finally she threw herself at the mercy of Parliament in full-fledged self-sacrificing Nirupa Roy glory. #BJP #Cancer #Congress #Gender #InMyOpinion #Lalit Modi #Sonia Gandhi #sushma swaraj #Women

No ‘happy ending’ to porn ban: Why BJP’s decision to put blame on ISP is a blunder

This means that if anything is unblocked, and child porn happens to be found on that site, the ISP can be held liable for the content under Section 79(3)(b). #Chief Justice H.L. Dattu #HowThisWorks #Kamlesh Vaswani #Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad #Online Porn #PornBan #Suhel Seth

Porn ban: Modi sarkar’s bid for swachh internet has become a source of mockery

It’s surreal enough that our politicians are jousting with high minded rhetoric about porn in public. Once upon a time they just minded their own business and watched porn quietly in parliament on their mobile phones. Now they are minding everyone else’s business. #BanPorn #BJP government #Gajendra Chauhan #Narendra Modi #Pahlaj Nihalani #porn #Shashi Tharoor #Swachh Bharat

Porn Ban: India is in revolt but who will be our Anna Hazare?

Don’t count on any porn-watching festival as an act of conscientious resistance, the way someone might organize a beef-eating festival. #Ban on porn #Banning Porn #BanPorn #Blocking porn sites #HowThisWorks #Hustlers #India #Internet #Modi government #PornBan #pornography #Ram Gopal Verma

Remembering Kalam: Greatly beloved, but he maybe missed being truly great

One of the reasons that Kalam’s appeal cut across class and creed was the man radiated a sort of innate gentleness. #Abdul Kalam #APJ Abdul Kalam #Inpraiseof #NewsTracker #President #Tribute
