Congratulations to the Thiruvananthapuram District Panchayat on winning the Best Panchayat Award again!

Rajasthan shows second highest fall in infant mortality rate: more good news from @INCIndia ⁩ -run Rajasthan state. Keep it up @ashokgehlot51 ⁩ @SachinPilot ⁩

Why the Govt's claims about their tax cut won't stand up to careful scrutiny: @pravchak  takes you through the numbers:

Had a good visit to “Krithi”, the Kerala Government’s International Festival of Books & Authors. Excellent exhibition of old literary moments in the Co-operative writers’ movement in Kerala, great selection of books on sale & lots of readers!

Excellent questions @ManishTewari ! @ProfCong  is conducting a similar exercise nationwide.

British MP Who Criticised Govt on J&K Stopped At Airport: conduct really unworthy of a democracy &guaranteed to give us a far worse press than if she had been admitted. Govt claims situation is normal in Kashmir. Why is the govt then so scared of critics?

Detailed description of the benefits of the 2500-year-old Indian technique of pranayama, dressed up in 21st c. scientific language as "cardiac coherence breathing"! It's taking the West a few millennia to learn what our ancients taught us millennia ago, but hey, you're welcome...

Faster Than Usain Bolt? Karnataka Man Running With Buffaloes Covers 100 Metres in Just 9.55 Seconds. I urge the Athletics Association of India to take this man under their wing & make an Olympic champion of him. Wonder how many hidden talents we have!

Unbearable to watch but we must: listen to thvoices of our assaulted students, their pain&bewilderment that this is happening to them in what they grew up thinking of as a democracy. This government has taught us a valuable lesson: don’t take your freedoms for granted.Resist!

What’s with these BJP netas & their schooling? @AmitShah  didn’t pay attention in history class & @SirPareshRawal  clearly didn’t pay attention in geography class!

Nehru & India Gandhi in the US in 1954. Look at the hugely enthusiastic spontaneous turnout of the American public, without any special PR campaign, NRI crowd management or hyped-up media publicity.
