My favourite genre of literature is reading twitter threads about fictional ultra-rich lazy Dalits like me oppressing poor hardworking UC students & stealing their seats

Lol. Everybody is having a 'blast'. But some choose not to understand simple language.

I remember Pakistani crowds sang 'Balaaji, dheere chalo'. Based on the hit Bollywood song of that time 'babuji dheere chalo'.
That was a brilliant phase in India-Pakistan ties. Afterwards, India under Rahul Dravid toured Pakistan, won Test and ODI series there, and were similarly lionised and celebrated by crowds. Our pacer Balaji became a rock star of sorts there…the period was too good to last

Even I was part of #IndvsPak battles on the field where we have lost but never been told to go to Pakistan! I’m talking about 🇮🇳 of few years back. THIS CRAP NEEDS TO STOP. #Shami

Producer - 'Aap iss simple entertainer script mein apni feminism mat daalo please'. *laughs* Me - 'Sir aap bhi toh saalon se har simple entertainer mein apni misogyny daal rahe hain.' Laughter fills the room. No way they are calling me back.

The hounding of @iamsrk is the saddest symbol of what has gone wrong with this country. And the sadness is felt by all kinds of people. You can feel the sadness in this flute rendition of an SRK song:
Shah Rukh Khan Love Song, Played by Flute Seller Qurban Ansari… an Evocation Summoned in Delhi

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
Today the only negative is that my kids have grown up…now to wait till they start believing in fairy tales again…
