Do watch this interview of Journalist Piyush Babele. He talks about his book, "Nehru Mithak aur Satya", about the life of Jawaharlal Nehru, the First Prime Minister of India. It answers and clarifies the fake news that keeps floating on the #WhtatsAppUniversity about #jawaharlalnehru .

A good watch.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it’s probably time for everyone to support Airtel. BSNL/MTNL are on their death bead (culpable homicide), Vodafone to follow soon (suicide, abetted). If Jio is the only one left, Pegasus won’t even be necessary.
