New Delhi: Union Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal does a really eloquent job of shaming Imran Khan and Pakistan.
The $20 fee each charged by Pak for #KartarpurSahib darshan is atrocious. How will a poor devotee pay this amount? Pakistan has made a business out of faith. @ImranKhanPTI's statement that this fee will boost Pak's economy & result in earning foreign exchange is highly shameful. pic.twitter.com/a0sidEDIPZ

Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi has found a way to congratulate Nobel Laureate Abhijit Banerjee by attacking the BJP.
Dear Mr Banerjee,
These bigots are blinded by hatred and have no idea what a professional is. You cannot explain it to them, even if you tried for a decade.
Please be certain that millions of Indians are proud of your work. https://t.co/dwJS8QtXvG

It’s not often that Markandey Katju, retired Supreme Court judge, loses a battle of wits and words but Lt General (retired) Syed Ata Hasnain has got the better of him this time.
Depends on who starts these duels. Secondly, why don't you visit Tangdhar and get a feel of LoC dynamics which is a world apart. I understand it because of my experience. I don't comment on legal issues which are not understood. So why don't you leave the LoC to us and chill. https://t.co/ybjyv4d45Q

So, is Abhishek Manu Singhvi of Congress praising Veer Savarkar or damning him with faint praise?
The strength of Indian thinking has been inclusive. Many strands of the freedom movement have existed—one cnot agree with the jingoism or violent elements of #Savarkar’s nationalism nor with his vicious anti #Gandhism but one can accept that he was imbued by nationalist motives.

A tweet by Khusbu Sundar about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with Bollywood stars for Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary reflects a North-South divide.
With al due respects to all those who met our H’ble PM @narendramodi ji last eve on behalf of Indian cinema, would like to remind @PMOIndia that Hindi films alone do not represent or contribute to the economy of this country. South Indian cinema is the largest contributor.. cont.

Well, PM Modi did go south and was so inspired by Mamallapuram that he penned a poem, now translated into Tamil, which has given his fans another reason to congratulate him. Actor Vivekh is one of them.

Thank you @Actor_Vivek!
Respect for nature is a key part of our ethos. Nature manifests divinity and greatness.
The scenic shores of Mamallapuram and the morning calm provided perfect moments to express some of my thoughts. https://t.co/2hGCmcs9M8

American singer Lady Gaga’s tweet in Sanskrit broke the internet on Sunday. Nobody knows why she went philosophical, that too in Sanskrit.
