Powerful statement from @narendramodi in interview to @FareedZakaria "Indian muslims are too patriotic for al qaeda to have any traction"
It's ironic how many Tories are delighted Scottish separatism hasn't won the day, yet campaign for European separatism #bettertogether

"I felt violated as a woman": listen to the feisty @deepikapadukone in this interview with me on taking on TOI…
How could Hema Malini show such insensitivity to the impoverished widows of Vrindavan? She takes my questions here:…
Dignified and democratic resolution to the Scot-free (not) question. Lesson for the world
Perhaps small-minded, but have to say there's a poetic justice in the once-'great' Britain facing the division it inflicted on other nations
No matter what happens in your life you will never be this happy.

On Buck Stops Here: #NoFringeBenefit for elections: Have poll polarisers like 'Love Jihad' boomeranged badly? Will BJP reign in fringe
The BJP could pay in U.P for changing the subject form 'vikas' to love jihad. The PM did not win a full mandate for Hindtuva.

Would be interesting though to see what results were if BSP had contested. Their sitting out huge advantage to SP
Moral of the story for SP: The results are not an endorsement for your version of communal politics either. Perform or Perish warnings
Bypoll Moral of the story for BJP: #Nofringebenefit- control the hate spewing lot, make love, not forced 'jihad'.
Just wondering: Do the ByPoll results show that the BJP needs Modi more than the other way around & the Congress has done fine minus Rahul!

I ask @deepikapadukone whether she'll speak on hyper-sexualised images of women in cinema with same spunk as on TOI. Catch the interview!
"This has nothing to do with being a celebrity or actor.Felt violated as a woman" @deepikapadukone in an interview with me on taking on TOI
Hmm. So much for 'Love Jihad' as the poll polarizer then.
Eccentric, lovable, sad and yet so filled with hope. Found myself smiling goofily through #FindingFanny. Absolutely loved it
