#KapilDev #Rajinikanth #LalSalaam
Two living legends in one frame. One each from the guaranteed crowd puller genres in India – cinema and cricket. Just what was needed to get fans of the stars worked up. #Jailer and #LalSalaam got the resultant visibility thanks to them and BTS stills from the shoot. Never mind that it is not a Rajinikanth starrer (extended cameo) and Kapil Dev is understandably playing only a cameo. It all adds up. Hope the movie directed by Aishwarya Rajinikanth lives up to the expectations it is building.
It is my honour and privilege working with the Legendary, most respected and wonderful human being Kapildevji., who made India proud winning for the first time ever..Cricket World Cup!!!#lalsalaam#therealkapildev pic.twitter.com/OUvUtQXjoQ

The former Union Law Minister will be in charge of Earth Sciences. As newspaper reports point out following the news of his new mandate, frequent run-ins with the judiciary could have been the driver. There are two sides to every story. And on social media, there are usually more than two. One is the above said version. Another view is that the person filling in his shoes (although only as MoS with Independent charge) Arjun Ram Meghwal is from Rajasthan, which goes to polls soon. The former IAS officer and the community he was born into could prove useful in the coming elections, say some. Be that as it may, they importance of the Earth Sciences Ministry is being drummed up. Not just by BJP supporters. Rijiju himself has gone on record saying the shift was not a punishment, but part of the government’s plan. From posts about lithium discovery in Kashmir to talk of EV adoption to the India Meteorological Department (IMD) DG Mrityunjay Mohapatra’s presence as Rijiju assumed charge, everything was in sync for this version. Yet, if there was a choice, I would pick ‘All of the above’.
During his eventful tenure of almost two years as Law Minister, #KirenRijiju made several digs at top judges and the Indian judiciary itself. He was replaced by Arjun Meghwal, the current Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs, reports @courtkacheri4https://t.co/ZUfFaqpYPs

Everyone spreading news negatively. But everyone has forgotten that 2 LITHIUM reserves have been found in India (Kashmir and Rajasthan) and Ministry of Earth Sciences requires someone who will continuously deal with foreign scientists and researchers effortlessly.#KirenRijiju pic.twitter.com/bG6G2JJaOE

It’s getting exciting. Every year, at some point of the IPL, and definitely towards the end of the tournament if not earlier, there’s talk about a script at play. Oftentimes, accusers say the whole thing is fixed. Nevertheless, people watch IPL for the sportainment value it offers and there are enough people who rubbish the rumours with the logic that it would be impossible to fix the entire tournament. If there was any scripting done this year, up until noon on 19th May, I think it has been done brilliantly. To keep everyone guessing on who the other three teams in the playoffs will be, with only five league matches left to play, is great for cricket, the fans, media involved and advertisers.

This is cruel trolling. When the motivation is wrong, it shouldn’t be encouraged. Even if some of the jokes are hilarious. The lady recalling an immigration staffer not believing her (about her address in London being 10 Downing Street) might have been the trigger. But as other posts show, the guns were loaded with hate – owing to her making an insensitive and optically incorrect comment on communal politics. There are always sane voices if you bother to look. Like the last post here reiterates. Let’s give the lady a break. The episode also offers a valuable lesson that in the era of invasive TV cameras, media and social media, it’s better to say nothing than be caught saying something that could be blown up. Kipling wrote, “If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools…” Rings true.

Sudha Murthy started a dating site for the children of simple-living billionaires. It’s called Humble.

#SudhaMurthy jokes. hi, yes, it was for PR, she is rich, maybe NMoorthy and herself are RW sympathisers and run Opindia, I hate them for many things too. Let’s give the lady a break. She does have qualifications beyond many successful women. Respect her age! Leave her alone!

Three more executions of prisoners. Of those who protested. Is the world really one? Or to each country its own? The latter seems to be the prevailing truth. For the rest of the world to lend its ear and a message of support, the people of Iran need to be heard. The internet is the lifeline that enables that. It now seems to be under threat. Is the world listening?
Three protestors from the recent uprising, the "Children of Iran", were murdered this morning through execution. Do you see any of this? Do you hear us? https://t.co/PQvY2k4YxI

You have a spaceship, but here in Iran, the mullahs' regime executes several people every day.
We are getting killed here. for freedom. For the basic rights of a human being. Please be our voice.
They are cutting off the internet.#MahsaAmini #IranRevolution

8 months have passed since the killing of #MahsaAmini & the oppressive actions of the Islamic Republic regime persist, claiming the lives of more young individuals. Countries that maintain their ties with this murderous regime are complicit in the execution of innocent protesters https://t.co/beLwmHQPDP
