I'm old enough to remember an emergency news broadcast on Doordarshan on 5th Dec 92. Govt informed us that Mulayam Singh Yadav and Kalyan Singh has assured that no person will reach the site with any weapon. Next day, site was demolished.

Stay safe people.

For the life of me, can never understand WHY someone will agree to be panelist on a debate show where the anchors are HABITUAL for speaking sarcastically & in a condescending way. How come BBC & CNN don't have SUCH anchors?

Downloading judgements from web portal before internet is shut down in Delhi.

MJ Akbar's case is the FASTEST defamation case I have seen in a Magistrate Court. Normally takes 3 years for status report from police, then 2 years for arguments on Section 156(3), then 2+ years for Pre Summoning Evidence, then this, then that, then some more of this.

Order reserved after 8+ yrs.

Even days after 9/11, there were no politicians demanding Bush to resign. You can't jump into politics in everything so soon.

BJP is already addressing reporters and ridiculing Arvind Kejriwal on the fire tragedy.

What if ONE was to be acquittal later? Now his family will live with this scar forever? This is NOT helping the unfortunate rape victim. Cops have replaced the initial accused by making themselves accused now.

Read: Letter sent to states: GST Council rings first alarm bells on revenue
Remember the MIDNIGHT celebration of LAUNCH of taxation system? Central Govt can't compensate the States for shortfall in revenue collection!

But, let's make sure Rahul Bajaj dare doesn't open his mouth.

What a long day. Ended up in the evening with briefing Mr Mukul Rohatgi and Mr V. Giri for a tax matter listed tomorrow in the Supreme Court. Time to unwind.
