Last week, the Delhi government reopened its schools for all grades after almost two years of closure. On Friday, The Indian Express followed Class II student Mohammed Zaid on his first day back — to understand the challenges a long hiatus in learning could pose.
When 7-year-old Mohammed Zaid left home for his first day of school, he said he could not remember the friends he had in kindergarten before pandemic struck. He only had a memory of a friend named Ayush Kumar, but he had not spoken to him for the almost two years of no school.
Across Delhi, schools reopened for primary and middle school children on February 14 after an almost two-year closure, punctuated by fits and starts of unsuccessful reopening attempts in November 2021.

#ExpressExclusive: Slamming a set of what he called “self-appointed custodians of the world,” External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar said,“India is not looking for their approval, is not willing to play the game they want to play.”

On the ground, things were a little different.
And in a move that raises questions of Constitutional propriety, it also sent these to the Lok Sabha Secretariat which is an independent office that functions under the advice of the Lok Sabha Speaker.
In its response to the RTI request by The Indian Express, the MEA shared emails but did not share the two attachments citing Section 8(c) of the #RTI Act, which relates to breach of privilege of Parliament.

Speaking at the Indian Express' eAdda program on January 10, @smritiirani gave her first reaction to the #SainaNehwal (@nsaina), #Siddharth Twitter controversy. She said a world champion has been demeaned and objectified for her political views.
“Do women get explicitly objectified only through one app? No. As I came to this conversation, I had a world champion, Ms Nehwal, who was demeaned for her political position, no less by a so-called popular actor, a man who would have known better: #SmritiIrani
Responding to a question on the targeting of Muslim women via apps, #SmritiIrani said: “Women, irrespective of their religion, have been denied their dignity on social media platforms. I am grateful that the police are investigating this issue."
