TERI case: Take gods to court, let the likes of Pachauri carry on with sexual harassment

By being silent on Pachauri and letting TERI off the hook we are, in effect, de-humanising women, making them a sum total of their body parts #InMyOpinion #Sexual harassment #Sabarimala #sexism #RK pachauri #TERI #Shani Shingnapur Temple #The Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act of 2013

Saving Private Vadra: Congress is finding false equivalences in the alleged Gujarat land scam by Anar Patel

To associate Anar Patel or any other family member of the chief minister of Gujarat with the company is a complete fabrication, or in simpler words, a blatant lie. #Congress #BJP #InMyOpinion #Land Acquisition Act #Robert Vadra #Gujarat government #Land allocation #Gir National Park #Sanjay Kaul #Anar Patel

Forget Sunil Dev's allegations against Dhoni: What did BCCI do with Mudgal Committee's sealed envelope?

In the video shot as part of a sting operation by Hindi publication Sun Star, Dev provides no evidence to back up his assertion aside from Dhoni choosing to bat first instead of bowl first, which Dev said the team had agreed to do before the toss. #India #ConnectTheDots #InMyOpinion #Test cricket #England #MS Dhoni #Sunil Dev #Manchester Test #Match-Fixing Allegations

Net Neutrality and Trai: A principle-driven fight was won today but battle for connectivity continues

With its decision on net neutrality, Trai taught us a valuable lesson – principle holds merit. The million voices of average citizens can bring about change. #facebook #Internet #InMyOpinion #TRAI #Net neutrality #Savetheinternet #Free Basics
The Maneka Gandhi column: We've pretended that Mad Cow Disease does not exist in India, it's time we acknowledge its fatality

The Maneka Gandhi column: We've pretended that Mad Cow Disease does not exist in India, it's time we acknowledge its fatality

Hundreds of our cows, buffaloes, sheep and goats have these symptoms. But our vets are not trained to recognize these symptoms as BSE. There are no proper veterinary hospitals in rural India (two rooms without light and water, in Pilibhit), no labs to test the brain even for rabies. No wonder we say our cattle are healthy. #InMyOpinion #Tuberculosis #The Maneka Gandhi Column #Mad Cow Disease #leukaemia #Mad Cow #Bovine spongiform encephalopathy

Bengaluru's racist profile: The attack on the Tanzanian woman should worry all of India

Last week, a Tanzanian woman was assaulted in Bengaluru. The tepid response of the political leaders and cops does not bode well for the city and the country. #InMyOpinion #Karnataka #Bengaluru #Racism #racist attack #Tanzanian woman
David Headley revelations will lead to nothing for India because Pakistan is a Somalia in our neighbourhood

David Headley revelations will lead to nothing for India because Pakistan is a Somalia in our neighbourhood

Three things are absolutely certain: Pakistan and its ISI will be implicated; Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, his Pakistan military and ISI interlocutors will be named, and the details of the conspiracy and its roll-out will be spelled out. To summarise, Headley’s deposition from his US jail, where he is serving a 35 year term, will clearly establish that it was indeed Pakistan, and not some non-State rogues, that had unleashed terror in Mumbai. #India #Islamic terrorism #Pakistan #ISI #InMyOpinion #LeT #Indo-Pak #Anti-Terrorism

Give in the name of art: Here's what Hema Malini, Anupam Kher controversies prove

Frankly, the idea of serving the country through art is completely bogus. What is so special about the profession of the celebrities — especially artists and players — that entitles them to call themselves patriots ? #Amitabh Bachchan #Sachin Tendulkar #InMyOpinion #Angelina Jolie #Mohammed Rafi #Hema Malini #Sunil Dutt #Barabanki #land allotment #Anupam Kher #Kashmiri Pandits #Mala Sinha #Nargis #Suresh Wadkar
Why so serious? DGCA needs to loosen up over the Sonu Nigam's Jet Airways 'concert'

Why so serious? DGCA needs to loosen up over the Sonu Nigam's Jet Airways 'concert'

Sometimes, our regulators take themselves too seriously. They need to lighten up. Jet Airways suspending its cabin crew after they allowed Bollywood singer Sonu Nigam take over the aircraft cabin PA system is a case in point. #Jet Airways #InMyOpinion #DGCA #Sonu Nigam #Shareworthy #Civil aviation requirement #MA Deviah
