Saif Ali Khan lashes out at photographers for clicking his son Taimur. Paparazzi nahi huye😄

Now @YashwantSinha  used to be called Rollback Sinha especially on petroleum tariffs during the Vajpayee years when he was FinMin. Nothing wrong with @nsitharaman "s reverse course correction. #NirmalaSitharaman  #EconomicSlowdown 

@INCIndia  and UPA must share the blame for a poor supervision of both corporate governance and the banking sector. But @BJP4India  makes it worse with adventurist brinkmanship in politics, confounding the investment climate. #EconomicSlowdown

Schools closed in #Kashmir . Internet down. Hospitals stressed. No mobiles. Army checkposts everywhere. Assemblies banned. Baaki sab first class hai.

Faizabad to be renamed #Ayodhya , with #YogiAdityanath  saying the name represents India's "Aan, baan aur shaan". All three words are Urdu. Ama isey kahte hain Freudian slip.

Consider the irony. AAP government in Delhi cannot hire advisors but central government will get joint secretaries on lateral hire

Raghuram Rajan tells @sardesairajdeep  that India lost upwards of Rs100,000 crore from #DeMonetisation  & benefits are vague or insignificant

Ten trucks of fireworks at Jodhpur for Priyanka Chopra-Nick Jonas wedding. What do you think, my green friends? #PriyankaChopra  #PriyankaNickWedding 

Know the difference between what you eat and who serves it. #Halal  food is akin to #vegetarian  food -- a customer choice. Rejecting a food order on the basis of who delivers it on the basis of creed, caste, gender or religion is a matter of negative social discrimination #Zomato
