Teachers’ Day, Good Governance Day, now Ryan International: Following the same Modi syllabus

Whether it’s Swachh Bharat or Teachers' Day every project is so tied up with the persona of Narendra Modi, everything he touches becomes political. #BJP #ConnectTheDots #Delhi #Grace Pinto #India #Membership drive #Narendra Modi #PMO #Ryan International

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

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
