This is not UP: Why is BJP ignoring perils of playing polarisation card in Delhi?

Delhi is effectively under central rule. Communal disturbances in the capital under his watch should be the last thing Narendra Modi wants on his plate. #Bawana #Hindu-Muslim conflict #Hindus #Lokesh Chandra #Muharram #Muslims #Narendra Modi #polarisation #PoliticalPlay #Religion #Sangh Parivar #Trilokpuri

Why the 1984 riots are haunting Indian-American Congressman Ami Bera

It took fifty years for an Indian-American to make it to the US Congress after Dalip Singh Saund in 1957. But Dr Ami Bera, the only Indian-American in Congress currently is in a race that's being called a toss-up. The irony is a group of Sikh Americans are mobilizing the community against the Indian American congressman. #1984 Sikh Massacre #Ami Bera #Dalip Singh Saund #Indian- Americans #Indira Gandhi #NewsTracker #US #US congress #US midterm

Here’s why Tim Cook’s ‘coming out’ matters: He didn’t make it seem like a big deal

Tim Cook's coming out is the kind that most gay people want. It adds another layer to what we know about them without defining his persona and colouring his work. #Apple #Apple CEO #Apple CEO Tim Cook #Apple Inc. #Coming out #Homosexuality #Homosexuality in India #Inpraiseof #Section 377 #Tim Cook #Tim Cook Homosexuality

Booked under Section 377: Bangalore techie’s story gets extra punch thanks to outdated law

A repeal or reading down of Section 377 will not miraculously remove the social stigma around homosexuality and what consenting adults do in their bedrooms. But it certainly plays its part in giving a sort of official stamp of approval on that stigma. #Adultery #Bangalore Techie #Gay #Gender equality #Gender identity #Government #InMyOpinion #Lesbians #LGBT community #OBC #Section 377 #Supreme Court #transgenders

‘Happy New Year’ is Farah Khan wishing Shah Rukh Khan, ‘Happy New Body’

Clearly way more work was put into the body of Shah Rukh Khan than into fleshing out the script of Happy New Year. It marks a new height in body worship in Indian film but it's more about the male body for a change. #Abhishek Bachchan #body building #Boman Irani #CultureDecoder #Farah Khan #Happy New Year #Manohar Aich #Shah Rukh Khan #Sonu Sood
