New Delhi: Twitter was majorly about the different crises plaguing the country — the Covid-19 crisis, Rajasthan’s political crisis and the nepotism crisis in Bollywood.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who tested positive for coronavirus over the weekend, provides a lesson in leadership.

Onto another leader. With his government on shaky ground, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot turns to the divine.

While on the subject of celestial beings, BJP’s Shiva Gandhi accuses Congress of being anti-Lord Ram.

Back to human affairs, National Conference’s Omar Abdullah is confused by Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi’s comment that the BJP’s toppling of governments is reprehensible during a pandemic.

Gandhi, for her part, clarifies her statement. Hope that satisfies Mr Abdullah…

Moving on, Bollywood where the nepotism drama has become a daily soap opera.

Here’s the latest in the Taapsee Pannu vs Kangana Ranaut war.

In an interview, Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman said that some groups in Bollywood were spreading rumours about him. But now, he is taking the high road – read on.

Wonder who filmmaker Shekhar Kapur is talking about in this cryptic tweet.

Telugu Desam Party President Chandrababu Naidu is so inspired by actor Sonu Sood’s tractor gift to a family that he comes up with a generous offer of his own.

Do Superman’s powers derive from his costume? Here’s what Sonu Sood thinks.

BJP MP and actor Hema Malini came out of her self-imposed hibernation to wish someone a happy birthday. So did BJP’s Syed Shahnawaz Hussain. Find out who.

And after a long wait, something is on its way from France.

A bit of nostalgia now: Take a look at where author R.K. Narayan began to write the magic of Swami’s adventures in the fictional town of Malgudi.

Finally, US President Donald Trump is in a mellow mood as he looks beyond his love for golf.
