The life of a nation depends on how well the creative and comedic juices of its people are flowing.

Cartoonist Unnamati Syama Sundar (who signs off as Syam) put together a book on the various cartoons - ‘No Laughing Matter: The Ambedkar Cartoons 1932-1956’. #kunalkamra
Dr. Ambedkar was not alone in being subjected to what the cartoonists’ saw as humour.

Think of the cartoons on VP Singh during the Mandal Commission, or Arjun Singh during the introduction of the Other Backward Classes (OBC) quota. #kunalkamra

Supreme Court Bench headed by CJI rejects a PIL which sought direction from the Court for implementation of laws against Contempt of Court.

CJI: This is like you're saying that Court should pass an injunction that there should not be rapes and murders.

#SupremeCourt Image
CJI Bobde: We are in full agreement that there should be no contempt of Court.... But, we cannot pass orders like this.

This is unnecessary. There is a law in place then why should we pass orders saying law should be followed?

CJI Bobde: How can any court in the world direct the citizens to comply with laws and not break them?

@Far_Right_Watch So basically #TommyRobinson's #lawyer is going to try and use #stupidity as a defence?

Who'd have thought it!
@Far_Right_Watch #Gammonfest #London today as #YaxleyLennon's cultist followers demonstrate their failure to grasp he pleaded "#guilty to #contemptofcourt" and is thus jailed

#TommyRobinson put his #racism before ensuring delivery of a fair trail, no hero, just a #muppet
@Far_Right_Watch Career criminal (assault, mortgage fraud, contempt etc.) #YaxleyLennon begs for #asylum on #Infowars (#Sandyhook conspirators)
