Have finally written on this, might follow with a much longer piece later.
"A few themes that pervade the judgment and they are 1) Self-contradiction; 2) Intellectual chicanery and 3) Bankruptcy of imagination."
My column on the CAB today has a story about what happened when my Grand Parents went back to Lahore to look for their home. https://mumbaimirror.indiatimes.com/opinion/columnists/dushyant/redefining-india/articleshow/72390345.cms
As you keep reading this investigative series on #ElectoralBonds, remember to thank the unassuming real hero, Commodore (Retd) Lokesh Batra who has helped reveal the truth about our electoral politics. And, remember the power of RTI Act, which too this govt has now diluted.
Heres a family story. In '47, my grandfather's brother was travelling by train when some goons entered the compartment. The goon pointed at my grand uncles luggage and thundered who it belonged to. My granduncle said it was his. No, said the goon brandishing a knife - this is mine. The goon picked up the trunk and got off. My granduncle could only watch helplessly. But he yelled out of the window 'Hai to humara, tum liye ja rahey ho'.

Unbelievably stupid and criminal of the police (and state govt) to do so, but then only to be expected.
10,000 people charged with sedition in one district means the State accepts that it has lost its legitimacy to rule.
Also, in a functional democracy, the courts would take suo motu cognisance of this, restore peoples rights, and the State's sanity.
This is possibly the largest number of people booked for sedition at one time in one district anywhere in India.
How did this slip below the radar?

JNU students are a beacon of hope. Taking blows on their bodies, they march forward for a better future for all, for everyone's right to education. Shame on you JNU VC, for bringing this situation where students are being brutalized for demanding their basic right #EmergencyinJNU
"My teachers often praised me in front of everybody, because I had stood first in class 10. My teacher’s father asked my caste and I told him. He refused to believe that a girl from Ahir caste had passed class 10. He said that I was lying; I was not an Ahir but a Kayastha!"
