#IMF raises Indian GDP growth estimate for FY23 from 8.5% to 9% but cuts Omicron-hit FY22 GDP growth from 9.5% to 9%. True to form, ⁦ @bsindia ⁩ header highlights the cut, tucks the raise into para 2. Either way Indian GDP growth double estimated ave world growth of 4.4%

And ⁦ @RahulGandhi ⁩ complains to ⁦⁦ @Twitter ⁩ CEO ⁦ @paraga ⁩ about his stagnant follower count. Many handles face culling of followers & shadow banning. Who cares? But you need a special sense of entitlement to write a “Dear Parag” letter

It’s not surprising that the JWST has aroused excitement across the world. The human race will have to reach a vastly higher level of civilisation before it begins to understand our place in the universe, writes @MinhazMerchant ,

@MinhazMerchant Who kind of idiots are these people who don’t understand that it is simply not an automatic renewal. Like almost everything that needs license/permission.

All the more reason to have a no-nonsense daily briefing. You’ll soon see the rubbish for what it is: rubbish. Pity this govt is inarticulate & reactive instead of being upfront & proactive.

@MinhazMerchant But sir, how much cooked up & drummed up nonsense can the govt clarify? There is rubbish every day, raked up by fools, paid agents & people with vested interests.
