Watching the BJP MPs vote en masse in the LokSabha against even sensible, non-political & constructive amendments proposed by us, I realise why BJP can never help farmers: they have no "agree"culture!

ख़ुदा की मोहब्बत को फ़ना कौन करेगा? सभी बन्दे नेक हों तो गुनाह कौन करेगा? ऐ ख़ुदा मेरे दोस्तों को सलामत रखना वरना मेरी सलामती की दुआ कौन करेगा और रखना मेरे दुश्मनों को भी महफूज़ वरना मेरी तेरे पास आने की दुआ कौन करेगा...!!! Mirza Ghalib’s 220th birthday. So many great lines....

തീരദേശത്തെ നിവാസികൾക്ക്‌ വീട് നിർമ്മിക്കുന്നതിന് സഹായകരമായി കേന്ദ്ര സർക്കാർ പ്രത്യേക പാക്കേജ് രൂപീകരിക്കണമെന്ന് പാർളമെന്റിൽ ആവശ്യപ്പെട്ടു. നിലവിൽ ആവാസ് യോജന വഴി സംസ്ഥാനത്തിന് നൽകുന്ന തുക സ്വന്തമായി ഭൂമി വാങ്ങുന്നതിനോ നിർമ്മാണം പൂർത്തിയാക്കുന്നതിനോ ഒട്ടും പര്യാപ്തമല്ല.

She was an outstanding Chief Minister, a warm & outgoing friend & above all a wonderful human being. I am privileged to have known her since my college days. I shall miss her terribly — & so does Delhi already.

Meanwhile to address the long-term issue of search&rescue, I have proposed to the DefenceMinister yesterday the stationing of a naval vessel in Vizhinjam Port(still under construction). Navy is considering a proposal to book a permanent berth in Vizhinjam. They should do so!

Have been speaking regularly& frequently to the Thiruvananthapuram DistrictCollector about the crisis involving four missing fishermen from Vizhinjam. Delighted they have returned home safely. Though they were not reached by the CoastGuard, I am grateful for their rescue efforts.

Shashi Tharoor: When Harvard Law School was honouring Human Rights Lawyer Sudha Bharadwaj, our govt was busy arresting her. While govt did nothing to stop wilful defaulters from fleeing country, they were desperate to offload an activist from plane only to be rapped by Delhi HC
