Finally watched #SeriousMen . A good attempt to portray unfulfilled filial expectations. Given its from the adorable @IAmSudhirMishra I would give it a 1 on 5. The 1 is for the effort. (1/n)
The film banks heavily on @Nawazuddin_S as the protagonist, who straddles his existential lower middle class 2G mindset, with expecttions of a 4/ 5G life for his progeny. (2/n)
The scenes are dramatical, and so less believable.

The role of the wife is reduced to a nobody, who is increduluous to the plot hatched by her husband.

Perhaps given the current discourse topically of gender empowerment, sensed an opportunity for a better treatment (3/n)
Overall...A big disappointment. Would have expected a better effort from the master of grey @IAmSudhirMishra.
It feels like ordering the popular Mumbai Vada pav with all expectations, but ending up being disappointed because the taste doesn't match up. @IAmSudhirMishra (5/5)

Any statistics folks on demographics and socio economics on those tested positive for #CoronaVirus especially in India.

Hypothesis 1: Mid & Upper income currently most infected due to travel exposure, and in contact with those traveled abroad. (1/n)
Hypothesis 2 : Those mid-upper income would soon transmit the virus to the rest, especially the poor who work in their households (maids, drivers, helps, etc.). -(2/n)
Hypothesis 3 : Those infected, especially would continue minus social distancing & would impact more . (3/n)

@RahulGandhi Ji, We unfortunately have been reduced to a lack of a political alternative to the current disposition, It is extremely disheartening that my country has been reduced to rabid polarisation, and my fellow country men have been radicalised. (1/n)
@RahulGandhi Isn't it high time @RahulGandhi that you get your strategy right, for the benefit of millions of Indians who would support a peaceful and inclusive democracy, as laid down by our fore fathers. (2/n)
@RahulGandhi My sincere request you to you @RahulGandhi is to sort out the weed amongst the INC, and work towards #2024. It would mean your team begins it journey now across the 500+ constituencies, addressing local issues. (4/4)

An earnest request to fellow Indians.We choose to be a democratic nation.

Lets honour our leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Patel & Pandit Nehru amongst many others.

Our forefathers fought for an Independent India, unlike a divided Pakistan. (1/n)
We've made ample strides as a nation together, and despite the inherent obstacles, we have seen progress.

Let's continue to do the same, if not better by focussing on the economy, rather than bigotry.

A nation like Germany, was bought on its knees thanks to facsists.
Doesnt our current and the next generation deserve better than the rhetorical Goli maaron Saalon Ko..

@Apoorvanand__ Penning down my observations on Solidarity for UP meeting at Constitution Club:

Never ever I realized, that the largest state of India, with more than 20% of Muslim population would be frightened today, post the experimentation of the famed Gujarat model (1/n);
@Apoorvanand__ Sadaf Jafar & Ex IPS officer Darapuri– detained with over 18 cases pre-booked!!

Targetting of minority neighborhood, cash & jewellery being stolen by people in uniform, supported by slogan chanting people in civilian clothes. (3/n)
