Whole of south Indian Twitter rushing to learn Punjabi in a day because of Diljit Dosanjh; Central government which has been trying to get us to learn Hindi since 70 years: https://t.co/avFZtcTPJe

You’re on a first date with someone, and they tell you the name of their favorite book. You immediately leave. What’s the book?

India's avg. daily testing has stabilized around 17.5L starting April 29. Sure enough, the cases seem to have found a 'peak' too after that. The pandemic is under control on paper! One can not talk of a real peak unless cases decline despite sustained increases in daily tests! https://t.co/FHsJmD2cDU https://t.co/GtFcuoF8M2

Testing has been reduced even further to 15.4L y'day (again a regular day) compared to 19.5L last week, adding more credence to the hypothesis that we are in the process of manufacturing a 'peak'! What a way to manage a pandemic! https://t.co/Rqqt93CaPW

Bringing some postcards of Bangalore's syncretic past (however imperfect) in light of politicians (read bigots) trying communalise the pandemic in the city. #NammooraEllaruNammavaru #ನಮ್ಮೂರ_ಎಲ್ಲರೂ_ನಮ್ಮೋರು https://t.co/qY0Nj0lfsX

Amma now asks me to share AltNews fact checks of specific fake news she comes across on her WhatsApp groups, so that she can call them out. Today the fake news was of Congress in Punjab throwing remdisivir vials into Bhakra canal to bring bad name to BJP. Proud! 😭😭😭

Why decentralization even within the state matters, and matters even more. Our federalism discourse is almost always focussed on centre-state relations alone. https://t.co/OGFAvTEVrG

The new KA lockdown guideline which says we cannot take our vehicles is so stupid that I know someone sitting in bluru came up with this. My whole extended family is in Malnad area, where the nearest human civilisation is 10 km away. Why why why are our policy makers so so dense

This is the cjty Visveswaraya built. This is also the city Mirza Ismail built. We had BL Rices, Inayatullah Mekhiris, Annaswamy Mudaliars and Hajee Ismail Saits who all made this city what it is. We are because they were. We are one children of the city! #NammooraEllaruNammavaru

This is an excerpt from @DeccanHerald on the community vision of Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wadiyar, erstwhile monarch and one of the chief makers of modern Bengaluru. Can we say the same about us today? He would have loved to hear us second him and say #NammooraEllaruNammavaru https://t.co/wjbO2dPh1T

Wherever I've lived, Bengaluru is the only home my heart has ever known. We have seen enough love, acceptance and hope in the city to know that the attempts to scar the city with whips of hatred and division, will be defeated. #ನಮ್ಮೂರ_ಎಲ್ಲರೂ_ನಮ್ಮೋರು #NammooraEllaruNammavaru

ಬರೀ ರಾಜಕಾರಣಿಗಳಷ್ಟೇ ಅಲ್ಲ, ನಗರದ ಅಲ್ಪಸಂಖ್ಯಾತರನ್ನು ಮಾಧ್ಯಮಗಳು, ಅದರಲ್ಲೂ ಕನ್ನಡ ಸುದ್ದಿ ವಾಹಿನಿಗಳು, ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಕೀಳಾಗಿ ಬಿಂಬಿಸುತ್ತಲೇ ಬಂದಿವೆ. #ನಮ್ಮೂರ_ಎಲ್ಲರೂ_ನಮ್ಮೋರು ಎಂಬುದು ಅವರಿಗೂ ನಮ್ಮ ಸಂದೇಶವಾಗಿದೆ. ನಿಮ್ಮ ಸ್ವಾಮಿನಿಷ್ಠೆ ತೋರಿಸಲು‌ ನಿಮ್ಮ ವೃತ್ತಿಗೆ ದ್ರೋಹಬಗೆದು, ಸಮಾಜದ ಸ್ವಾಸ್ಥ್ಯ ಹಾಳು ಮಾಡಬೇಡಿ.

ನಮ್ಮೂರ ರಾಮ ಜೋಯಿಷರ ಸತ್ತಾಗ, ಚಟ್ಟಕ್ಕೆ ಹೆಗಲು ಕೊಟ್ಟವನು ಖಾಸಿಂ ಸಾಬಣ್ಣ. ಅವರು ನಗುತ್ತಲೇ ಹೊರಟರು, ಇವನು ಹೆಗಲು ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಅಳುತ್ತಲೇ ನಡೆದ. ಕೋಮುವಾದದ ಮರಳು ಮನಗಳೇ, ಈ ಅನುಬಂಧಕ್ಕೆ ವಿಷ ಬೆರೆಸಬೇಡಿ, ನಿಮ್ಮ ಕಣ್ಣುಗಳೇ ಹೆಪ್ಪುಗಟ್ಟುತ್ತವೆ. #ನಮ್ಮೂರ_ಎಲ್ಲರೂ_ನಮ್ಮೋರು #NammooraEllaruNammavaru

Speak any sentence in our ooru accent and it is bound to have Kannada slangs, something Dakhni, something Sanskrit, something Marathi, Tamil or Telugu, and of course English. We just have to speak and our city's diversity shows itself to the world! #NammooraEllaruNammavaru
