#Gulzar for #Salman - Jaan.E.Mann is a fav soundtrack (of a disappointing film)..

सौ हसरतें, पर तेरा ग़म नहीं #g

Jaan.E.Mann was a terrific album of its time with an amazing set of songs which were Poetic, Melodious, Youthful, Visual & Experimental with a sane #AnuMalik at work with #Gulzar & Sonu as the key drivers

सब्र से इश्क़ महरूम है #gulzar

My fav is the grand musical innovative take where d song becomes interesting tool for story telling to convey d back-story of protagonists (romance-marriage-career- mistakes-separation-divorce) in just 8mins song #JaanEMann

Far-Right terrorism #THREAD

In April, a British police officer who belonged to the neo-Nazi terrorist National Action group was jailed for four years.

He said his interest in fascism started because he liked the "bold look" of Nazi propaganda posters.

In May, a British neo-Nazi who complained of supposed “Sharia law” & used “Adolf Hitler” as his Apple ID was jailed for three years for stirring up racial hatred.

The National Action supporter called Jo Cox an “alleged open traitor & enemy of the people”.

In June, a British neo-Nazi was sentenced to 18 years in jail for terror & explosives offences.

He was politicised in 2008/09, when he became "a bit of a fan of Nigel Farage & UKIP", & was a paid member of the party until “a few years ago”.

So much #fear, #uncertainty & #confusion abounds in our #society & #community right now. It's #understandable, a #Human response.For over 40 years my #Motto, #CatchPhrase or #Mantra,if you will, has been & still is a lyric in a song by one of my favourite Rock Bands- Uriah Heep!
I've used the line to define a lot of the philosophy I believe in, from a #signature on a #profile to some #website subscription to a deeply felt, personal interpretation of whatever is happening in the present moment in time!
The song: #CircleOfHands,the line: #Todays are only #Yesterdays, #Tomorrow! It says to me that whatever is happening #Today,by #Tomorrow it will be cast into history & be a #Yesterday!Always gave me hope that whatever ails us now,we'll survive& look back& realize all things pass!

Earlier this month my @MyConstitution colleague @aphatak wrote a piece in @Slate about why the DC district judge hearing the @WaysMeansCmte suit to obtain the President's taxes was wrong to put a pause on those proceedings. slate.com/news-and-polit… 1/x
@MyConstitution @aphatak @Slate @WaysMeansCmte The judge said he was pausing the case to wait for a decision in a different D.C. Circuit case, but as @aphatak explained, "[t]he two cases raise different issues," and there was no judicial principle that required the judge to wait. 2/x
@MyConstitution @aphatak @Slate @WaysMeansCmte And this matters because in this case justice delayed could be justice denied. slate.com/news-and-polit… 3/x

#racialjusticesyllabus These courses relied on the work that became known as the 'long civil rights movement' or the 'black freedom struggle.' The first book I used was Birnbaum & Taylor. #thread /1

I focused on the neglected stories of African Americans who built the organizations and movements that made social change possible, but today I wanted to take a few minutes to emphasize other people's contributions. #racialjusticesyllabus /2
John Brown is the most (in)famous case of a white American giving his life to the abolition of slavery. The mythology that surrounds his memory obscures too many of the lessons we could take from his life. /3 #racialjusticesyllabus

To Yesterday!
Well, what an odd, oddly unsatisfying, and yet even more oddly unsettling film for any lover of the Beatles to watch. Albeit with a great Oasis joke, and an even better, blink-&-you-miss-it Revolution 9 joke. #Yesterday
It did serve to reassure me that the weight I have laid on the Beatles' shoulders in my chapter on the 60s in #Dominion is one that they are more than capable of bearing - because only the Beatles could have borne the weight that #Yesterday obliges them to bear.
