I expect a political storm over Leila, a six-part TV serial on Netflix, the first season of which went on air last week.
The serial which has Huma Qureshi as the central character is Hinduphobic and foresees India becoming a totalitarian regime, priming itself for a genocide in the name of purification

Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised "sabka vishwas(everyone's trust)"in his oath ceremony. Within a fortnight his government has announced 5-crore scholarships-50% reserved for girl students-over the next five years. There are "bridge courses" for drop-outs. Madarsa teachers are to be imparted modern, scientific training.

It would be a hectic two days for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan (June 13-14). The flight detour through Oman and Iran too wouldn't have helped. Then there is this little matter of bilateral talks with at least five heads of states.

Modi has the mandate. Shah is in the hot chair as home minister. Millions of Indians are hoping to settle Kashmir once for all. This dispensation has a historic opportunity to undo the damage of appeasement to the Valley which India has practiced since the accession of Jammu & Kashmir to the Union of India in 1947.

Yes, she worked in McDonald once. Clearing tables and sweeping floors. All for a princely Rs 1,800 a month. We wouldn't have known it but for a textile council securing her Provident Fund employee certificate from McDonald and toying with the idea if its' auction could come to the aid of a group of women artisans.

BJP has so far been patient in dismantling Mamata Banerjee. They need more of such a dose. A rush for the trophy now would hurt them in not-too-distant a future. Mamata is collapsing on her own heap. You don't need a storm when a rustle of air is enough.

Mayawati and Akhilesh Yadav haven't found their voice since Exit Polls. Mayawati hasn't tweeted once; Akhilesh has tweeted only twice - that too no words only photo-ops with AAP and BSP leaders.
That's unusual silence from two biggies of Uttar Pradesh. I mean for nearly two decades, it was baton-passing between SP and BSP.

Lavasa laments that his dissents haven't been recorded. But then Election Commission never does it. A majority takes a call which in this case decided in favour of Modi. So what's this fuss about?

Modi's words must be hot oil in the ears of Indian Express loyalists. I don't know whether they cried for help since neither of the two Indian Express interviewers (Ravish Kumar and Raj Kamal Jha) could challenge Modi's verbal onslaughts.

What do we get in the Indian Express interview? How you walk so much? How you eat so little? How she would take up the role of a Prime Minister after the elections (not once but thrice in the interview)?

Look at the issue of Priyanka Sharma. She circulates a photo-shopped image of Mamata Banerjee, imposed over a latest picture of actress Priyanka Chopra. A complaint is filed and she is sent to 14-day judicial remedy. Mind you, Priyanka Sharma hasn't created the image, only shared it. Yet amongst thousands of such shares, she alone has been made to bear the brunt of suppression.

In what is emerging as a divided house in public domain, barbs are being exchanged and motives assigned by practicing legal luminaries, both advocates and judges in India. Practically, the dirty lines of our judiciary are being washed in public.

All too often we hear our honourable judges speak about the "trust" the people of the country have in the institution of judiciary. I am one of the people and unfortunately I lack complete trust in judiciary, one of the four founding pillars of our democracy.
