I'm proud of this deeply-felt piece in @the_hindu diagnosing what ails multilateralism in today's conflict- & virus-ravaged world. Attached for those who don't subscribe to this fine paper (which is well worth reading daily)!
Sharing a lighter moment with ⁦@INCKerala⁩’s Leader of the Opposition ⁦@vdsatheesan⁩ & ⁦@Oommen_Chandy⁩ as ⁦@NKPremachandran⁩ looks on
Youth are the future! With friends ⁦@AhamedSaju1⁩ of the Muslim League, Mathew ⁦@Kuzhalnadan⁩ MLA, ⁦@AipcKerala⁩ Secy ⁦@sudheerpmna⁩ & @HibiEden at ⁦@InfoparksKerala⁩ last night
My “Chambikko” moment today (for translation, ask a Malayali!) ⁦ @INCKerala⁩ ⁦@MahilaCongress⁩ ⁦@AdvJebiMather
With a galaxy of UDF leaders campaigning for #UmaThomas in the #Thrikkakara by-election: ⁦@vssivakumarmla⁩, KBabuMLA, ⁦@PremachandranNk⁩, ⁦@AdvJebiMather⁩, ⁦@BennyBehananMP⁩, ⁦@Oommen_Chandy⁩, ⁦@vdsatheesan⁩, ⁦@HibiEden⁩ & KPDhanapalan
Swaying to our campaign song with ⁦@MahilaCongress⁩ chief ⁦@AdvJebiMather⁩ & her colleagues! Who says election campaigning is always dull? #Thrikakkara
Joined UDF candidate #UmaThomas at an auto stand in Palarivattom Junction to express solidarity with the auto drivers & thank them for their support for her. Took the opportunity to make a ringing case for her candidacy with Malayalam TV channels.
Families joined in at the campaign event this morning! ⁦@MahilaCongress
A wonderful launch event by ⁦@MahilaCongress⁩ of the Uma Thomas campaign song
Launched Uma Thomas’ election campaign song in Thrikkakara at a high-spirited function of the ⁦@MahilaCongress⁩ spearheaded by ⁦@AdvJebiMather

Shift toward knowledge economy a political necessity for Kerala: @ShashiTharoor (a good summary of some of my points at the @AipcKerala interaction last night)…
Fronts target techies as campaign gains momentum:…
Some 180+ people attended the interaction last night at @InfoparksKerala at a trendy “cafe-resto” called Glassmates. Great to see so many young techies & other entrepreneurs focused on the state’s future. @INCKerala @AipcKerala
Addressed an interactive session with professionals organised by ⁦@AipcKerala⁩ in Infopark Kochi with @HibiEden, ⁦@drsslal⁩ & ⁦@sudheerpmna⁩. Excellent exchange features proving questions & frank answers. Ended urging them to vote for Uma Thomas in Thrikkakara.
Inaugurated the Greentouch Co-working space at Inforpark Kochi, a start-up venture helmed by two former activists of the Kerala Students Union @nsui. Their colleagues ⁦@HibiEden⁩, Mathew @Kuzhalnadan, @shafiparambil⁩ & ⁦@KSSabari1983⁩ turned up in solidarity
In a Gandhian protest, pineapple farmers gave away 10,001 high-quality pineapples they cannot afford to grow, to passers-by for free. They can’t live on the prices they get, so the protest made a major point in a way that captures the imagination of the public.
Addressed a pineapple farmers’ protest led by MLA Mathew ⁦@Kuzhalnadan⁩ in Palarivattom against unremunerative prices for their crop. StateGovt not paying MSP of ₹17 per unit; at rates of ₹5, two pineapple farmers have committed suicide. This is an unreported crisis.

My column for @ProSyn on the unseemly dispute over India's #Covid mortality numbers argues that the government should have accepted @WHO’s figures as relatively good news, rather than raising an unflattering controversy internationally:…

Pleased to receive an impressive new volume of essays on various aspects of the Kerala Renaissance. Is the “Malayali Miracle” over? Does the Kerala Model require reinvention or reaffirmation? What works, what doesn’t? Every thinking Keralite must interrogate herself on these qsns
There is no legitimate basis in science, in medicine, in ethics, even in the Bible, for punishing or discriminating among or against people solely on the basis of which substance they put in their body. Listen to @SmitaTharoor's fascinating podcast.…

The Aam Aadmi is much worse affected by food price inflation than the affluent, because food represents a bigger proportion of his regular monthly budget. The government must take steps to alleviate its impact on the common citizen, otherwise what’s the point of “antyodaya”?

The idea of this Chintan Shivir is for the party to get the opportunity to discuss in depth what is happening to the party, what is going wrong, what can be done right, where we should emphasize and focus, and where change is required etc.: Shri @ShashiTharoor #NavSankalpShivir
