This week was more or less about one thing: lynching.
Cricket Matches. Sore Losers. Presidential Elections. Indo-US Relations. Farmer Protests. The demand for Gorkhaland. Iftar. Yoga.
The agriculture crisis. GST. Dissent. Modi will finally pay Trump a visit. West Asia. Men in miniskirts giving me advice. Child Marriage.
Quarterly growth figures. Media muzzling. Eurotrip. Climate Change. Terror Attacks. Astana. Neighbourly spats. Gully Cricket.
GM Mustard. Kashmir. The Bhim Army. Job Cuts. The Disappointing Economy. OBOR. Kung Fu Yoga.
Triple Talaq. Death Sentence. Kulbushan Jadhav. One Belt, One Road. Power Cuts in Bangalore. Mosquitoes.
Demonetisation. The Economy. France. Japan. Sri Lanka. Republic TV. Justin Bieber. But most importantly, chicken nuggets.
Internal Security. Nawaz Sharif. the new Chinese aircraft carrier. Trump. The French elections. We are fighting battles of narratives
Kashmir. Trump. Erdogan. Vijay Mallya. The banking crisis. Rural distress. Sonu Nigam. Evan Spiegal. Let’s applaud you for getting through the week.
Men are mortal. So are ideas. An idea needs propagation as much as a plant needs watering. — BR Ambedkar
There is no other justification for the king to exist than to protect in every way, the people. For protection is the first foundation of all social order. It is from the fear of danda that people do not consume each other: it is upon danda that all order is based. — Shantiparva, Mahabharatha

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. – Albert Einstein
