We also learn that some people make grand sweeping statements that are not interesting to engage with. Vice versa just as true.

"Do you think Prophet Muhammad is proud of you?" @Ambreenzaidi  heartfelt video on #Bangalore  rioting

One year on, who will be Congress President? And is the party playing a me too version of the BJP's Hindutva & Nationalism core? @ShashiTharoor  has much to say, including on why the PM's beard has his attention. Full interview up on @themojo_in 

Kareena Kapoor says "Speaking your Mind these days gets you into trouble." And then proceeds to do just that. on @WeTheWomenAsia  our gendered lens from @themojo_in 

From a small village in Uttar Pradesh, my story on #SudeekhsaBhati , a young woman who died tragically days before she was to fly back to America. Daughter of a tea vendor, she won a full scholarship to US. Her family says she was harassed leading to her death. Police say untrue.

Researching post recovery #COVID  complications. If you would like to share your story please write to me barkha dot dutt at bdmpl dot org. Thank you.

"18 Million Salaried Indians have lost their jobs since April" - I speak to Mahesh Vyas of #CMIE  on the story you will not find on TV

Are you a parent having to pay full fees for schools that are not open except for online classes? And do you think this is reasonable? Education is the new fault line in the age of corona. Please write to me : Barkha dot dutt at bdmpl dot org

"Do not call them journalists. Not one of them is a journalist. They are all anchors, they've never reported a day" - @tavleen_singh  on how prime time TV news is now no different from the paparazzi. Full show on @themojo_in  here:


The incredible story of Mujibur Rehman, I meet him in #Mustafabad . The mob burnt his house, looted his belongings, his life was saved by his Hindu neighbour, Sanjiv. He's read both the Vedas & the Quran & this is his message of peace. A moment of sunshine in despair. #DelhiRiots 

"They tell women to stay at home and not speak up, but speak up we must. Nobody can take our voice"- 22 year old Ayesha Renna & Ladeeda Farzana -Sheroes from 2 viral images from #Jamia , one in which they save their male friend from lathis, speak to me about Women Leading protests

Here is the mob wielding iron rods and lathis and sticks freely roaming the JNU campus. The main gate is blocked, media not being allowed inside either. This is a complete collapse. @ArvindKejriwal  if the police won't step in you must

"Could Yogi not have arranged even a bus for us, Is it because we're? Poor?"-Rajneesh, is walking 247Km on foot to Bareilly. "Poverty will kill us before the virus"- If we airlift Indians how can we abandon millions of our poor. If states wont, let the Army. My #Mojo  report

Here is a closer shot of the man who fired 8 rounds in North East Delhi today with absolute impunity. Identify this man. Lock him up #DelhiViolence

Isn't it bizarre that a police that has been raining lathis on students in #Jamia  #AMU  didn't raise one lathi on the iron rod carrying masked vandals of #JNU  who sauntered away after wrecking property, beating women, teachers. sTudents tell me they're being tbreatened by cops

In Delhi's Connaught Place, men shouting "Desh Ke Gaddaron Ko, Goli Maaron Salo Ko." marching through our capital as @DelhiPolice  stands and watches. Are the deaths of our citizens already not quite enough? What is this nonsense #DelhiRiots 

Zero arrests and FIR against unidentified persons though they are all on camera. Let that sink in #JNU
