The #EnforcementDirectorate is selectively targeting opposition. Electoral bonds have legitimised secrecy in fund collecting. Across the board, even Bengali Bhadralok and Marathi Manoos have been bitten by the money-bug. my piece. #ParthaChatterjee…
In today’s politics it’s all about “Kaun Banega Crorepati.” Whether it’s Bengali bhadralok or Marathi Manoos, even those communities traditionally not associated with money-making, have been bitten by the get-rich-quick bug. My piece in @ThePrintIndia…
Bengali bhadralok, Marathi Manoos and the crorepati cult. In today’s politics even communities that traditionally disdained the pursuit of money have been bitten by the paisa bug. My piece for @ThePrintIndia…

BJP MP Nishikant Dubey claimed in Lok Sabha that no farmers died by suicide under PM Modi’s rule. Alt News investigation revealed that the data on the NCRB website directly debunks this statement. WATCH:

Political leaders are made by facing the lathi. Case in point : @MamataOfficial who faced police danda several times. If @INCIndia really wants to be an effective opposition it will have to be seen campaigning on the street and not just on social media or TV.
Dear Supreme Court, respectfully, ‘freebies’, are a matter between political parties, Election Commission and voters, it is not your remit. Judiciary must deliver justice and interpret Constitution not pronounce on policy. Kindly do not become executivised. #freebies #revadi

Nehru in 1937: “This tri coloured flag is a symbol of our unity, independence and sacrifices. It opposes the Union Jack in India. I want it to reach every home in India. When I stand under it, I get honour, strength, courage.” #JawaharlalNehru #Tiranga #Tricolour
“Communal reactionary organisations like Hindu Mahasabha and Muslim League are simply not intelligent enough to understand that the differences between Hindus and Muslims were manufactured by British imperialism to weaken Indians and weaken our spirit.” #JawaharlalNehru

“There was a political conspiracy behind #VinodRai. Somebody used him.” So said A Raja to me in this interview in 2018. Reupping when 5G auction fetched only 1.5 lakh cr when Rai calculated 1.76 lakh cr “presumptive loss” 14 years ago. TOI exclusive:…

If only the Delhi High Court had read this Indian Express front page investigation. Silly Souls can be benami too
The diverse colours of India! Always good to catch up with the irrepressible @MahuaMoitra.
Was #AtalBihariVajpayee a ‘mask’ or a misfit in the Sangh Parivar? ( Or was he neither?) My conversation with @naveen1003 at @journalism_talk
Thanks @IndiGo6E for some pleasant flying experiences even in monsoon turbulence. Loved the card!
Wonderful session, great questions and lovely audience ! Thank you @naveen1003 @journalism_talk…
Big thanks to @journalism_talk for creating such a free and open forum for dialogue this weekend in Jaipur. Was cheered to be there

Friends in Jaipur, look forward to seeing you this evening 4 pm!
Dear silly soul, there are many non gendered ‘great’ languages. English for example does not have grammatical gender. For eg: Government ( sarkar) is not ‘ki’ and water ( pani) is not ‘ka’ as in Hindi.…
Democracy means learning the art of disagreement. Was v pleased to do this interview with the wonderful Mysuru based newspaper, Star Of Mysore. @juggernautbooks…
Without taking away from gender-insensitivity of India’s netas, @adhirrcinc’s unthinking words a possible result of his native Bangla not genderising words the way Hindi does. Bangla papers often refer to @MamataOfficial as “Shri.” Either way Adhir misspoke & apology needed.
‘Neither a Mohd Zubair nor a Nupur Sharma ought to be arrested’ Column for @htTweets on why/how free speech is a matter of political convenience:a Bajrang Muni gets away for hate speech but you may not for a tweet on a neta! Read/share. Feedback welcome!

Journalism is the first draft of history, it’s been said. Delighted to be speaking about my new biography of #AtalBihariVajpayee at @journalism_talk this weekend in Jaipur! Hope to see you
The sheer moral dishonesty of on the one hand using the organised force of government to crack down on meat vendors and on the other of Goa restaurants serving "international" delicacies, is just so staggering.
Didn’t the silly souls read the a la carte ? Or perhaps confused between haute cuisine and hate cuisine…
The @AamAadmiParty is not region-specific, nor dynastic and is a contender for the same middle class vote that powered the @narendramodi wins. That’s why @BJP4India fears AAP & @ArvindKejriwal more than other regional leaders. My piece in @ndtv.…

Once again, in India, personal freedoms are under threat over an actor’s photos. A reup of my mantra for liberal freedoms: #WhyIAmALiberal
FIR against @RanveerOfficial is preposterous and ABSURD. Whose modesty is outraged anyway? Certainly not mine. Don’t like the photos, don’t look at them! #RanveerSingh…
Why should Delhi CM ⁦@ArvindKejriwal⁩ not be ‘allowed’ to showcase Delhi model at Singapore meet? To claim bureaucratese on ‘mayor’ v ‘CM is surely not the MEA’s problem. Pettiness overload! Or is Kejriwal seen as a potential scene stealer ?…
Splendour of ceremonial government frontage on display. But the real splendour for the Rashtrapati lies in upholding the Constitution at all times. Hopeful that #PresidentMurmu will stand guard over constitutional democracy.
