New Delhi: First off is BJP’s Babul Supriyo: it’s not often that a BJP leader takes on another BJP leader but that’s what happened when Supriyo called out BJP West Bengal President Dilip Ghosh for his intemperate words.

Maybe Supriyo would like to scold BJP Karnataka’s official handle for this vicious troll of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi?

Advocate Sanjoy Ghose is really living in the past if he thinks he can get away with calling Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman ‘sweetie’.

If Nepalese writer Kanak Mani Dixit is to be believed, Prime  Minister Narendra Modi’s CAA decision is not winning him any friends in the neighbourhood.

Actor Anupam Kher learned this week, like Juhi Chawla did last week, that your words can return to haunt you. Now opposed to the protests against CAA, here’s what he had to say about taking to the streets when the UPA was in power.

Meanwhile another actor and TV presenter, Simi Garewal is very impressed by at least one protest. Find it which one and why.

Business leader Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, came out in support of Deepika Padukone, and ticked off those who criticise her.

Far away in another land, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders actually has the last word against President Donald Trump.

The White House official handle tweeted the first snowfall of 2020 in Washington — only problem is it seems to have snowed only on Trump’s roof.

Mic drop! Three hurrahs for Pune Police’s epic response to a creepy Twitter user.

A travel alert for author Chetan Bhagat: do not visit JNU any time soon—even the Vice Chancellor won’t welcome you for calling the university a `college’.

And here’s Asif Ghafoor, head of Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence Public Relations. Ask yourself, what ailment has he been using Burnol for?
