AAP takes its Rs 1000 per month for women promise to Goa now. In last 2 months, @ArvindKejriwal has been to Goa as often as to Punjab. In multi cornered battle for Goa, AAP is X factor this time. It’s vote share could decide results in many places, esp in South Goa. #EyeonGoa

Don’t write off Cong just yet but if the party doesn’t reinvent itself soon, it will be trapped in ‘Nokia syndrome’.. Straight Bat video blog that’s attracted much comment already. Watch/share/subscribe to my you tube avatar! Feedback welcome.

The late Vinod Dua was a great Hindi movies song buff. Once on a memorable trip to Pakistan, we sang a Talat song together on the train. (Rather he sang and I hummed!). Listen to this magical song. And remember Vinod with affection.

There has been no more ‘natural’ tv personality than Vinod Dua: he was a trend setting journalist who could dive into a prog on politics,food, music, poetry with equal ease. Dua-Roy election jugalabandi was spl in 80s/90s DD general election live coverage as was Parakh show. RIP

Ten wickets in an innings done just 3 times in test history, all spinners; by contrast, 31 test triple hundreds, but just 1 400. Batting easier than bowling? Or just a combo of great skill and maybe a bit of luck needed when bowlers at the other end have an off day? #AjazPatel

A Mumbai born Kiwi getting ten wickets at the Wankhede is a fairy tale story to beat fairy tales. Aijaz Patel take a bow: ten wickets in an innings is truly a quite remarkable feat.. what a Patel rap!! 😄😄👍

When @ImranKhanPTI , the state promotes and protect the merchants of hate, the impunity leads to unspeakable barbaric violence . This is as true of Pakistan as any corner of the world that ‘Normalises’ hate and bigotry. #Blasphemy

The horrific vigilante attack on factory in Sialkot & the burning alive of Sri Lankan manager is a day of shame for Pakistan. I am overseeing the investigations & let there be no mistake all those responsible will be punished with full severity of the law. Arrests are in progress
