Dear Taimur, I hope you also grow up with the freedom one day to do whatever you want with your name. Include your illustrious mother in it. Or break free from all.
PM Modi, if they could magically reappear in flesh and blood on the Indian soil, how would Shivaji and Patel, icons of India, respond to being cast, nay imprisoned in stone?

As the AAP government completes nearly three years, it has failed to usher in the two most pivotal changes required in the National Capital Region: Seamless mobility and a habitable environment.
The Government insists there was no bungling and everything is going according to plan. An inquiry into what that implies.
The problem is real. We need to get those voices in our head, that constantly remind us of what needs to be done, to stop! In short, we need to practice doing nothing.
Indian politics is nothing if not about brazening it out. And for that the Congress vice-president's speeches, objections and interjections have to be a little more than mystery wrapped in enigma.
I mention demonetisation only to point out that unfortunately the Congress' response to it has been worse than anaemic.
'King Khan', after you sold out to hate and fear in a deplorable deal with Thackeray's MNS, what do we call you?

Things are changing and even entertainment news has lost its sting.
What if we were a cashless economy, a digitised polity with everyone owning a smartphone and, more importantly, knowing how to use it.
From midnight, there will be some changes. We will not accept the vegetable waste they supply us for food.
Demonetisation could have led to perhaps the biggest push mobile Internet has got in the country
The misplaced sense of patriarchy in Dileep's words directed towards 'protecting the honour' of Kavya Madhavan who has been affected by rumours that surrounded them, was too obvious to go unnoticed.
He saw himself as the successor of Jose Marti Perez, the author and poet, who many called the “Apostle of Cuban Independence.”
