"This is what great literature does," @suketumehta tells @NPR . Mehta says. "It reminds you that the person coming to your country, carrying a handprint of their child, is a parent like you could be a parent — is a human being like you're a human being."

There was a newsroom-wide reply-all apocalypse at NPR today, over the correct pronunciation of Kyiv. All I can say is that is was absurd and perfect and everything you’d ever expect such an email thread to be. I couldn’t be more proud to work with such sticklers for accuracy.

#Mumbai 's official COVID numbers have dropped 90% in the past 2 weeks. Is this a genuine drop, or have people just stopped reporting their infections to #BMC ?

With #Omicron cases down, #Mumbai schools reopened today. Restaurants, bars, hair salons, gyms have remained open. But Juhu Beach is still barricaded. @mybmc why can't we exercise outdoors, even masked? Please reconsider. @AUThackeray @mybmcGardens

Kashmir lost its statehood on Aug 5, 2019 when the Indian govt revoked Article 370 of the Indian constitution. It is now a Union Territory.

@lfrayer @100thofasec "FRAYER: Khan is from Indian-administered Kashmir. His father runs a ski shop there." He will be carrying the Indian flag, but Frayer still won't call Kashmir an Indian State. 'Indian-administered Kashmir' she digs in. @KanwalSibal @KanchanGupta @NAN_DINI @vijai63 @RatanSharda55

I asked Wharton students what they thought the average American worker makes per year and 25% of them thought it was over six figures. One of them thought it was $800k. Really not sure what to make of this (The real number is $45k)

Yes please! Now that Maharashtra schools are reopening, how about reopening a free public space where citizens can exercise outdoors, if only on weekday mornings? @AUThackeray @mybmc @mybmcGardens @MumbaiPolice

#Mumbai 's COVID cases have fallen to nearly 1/3 of what they were 10 days ago. Of course, tallies are always lower on Sundays, when testing is typically lower. But here's hoping 🙏

This verdict is likely to anger advocates for victims of sexual abuse in & out of the church, and fuel the idea that church leaders stand above the law.

Today a #Kerala court delivers a verdict in the #rape case against Bishop Franco Mulakkal. In 2018, I visited the convent where a nun was allegedly raped, and met with the victim's fellow sisters. #nunrapecase #francomulakkal
