1. Here are a few important clarifications on yesterday's Order of d SC in the #Jagannath Puri Temple Petition. It is not a "judgement", it is only an order at this point.The recommendations of the District Judge wrt Jagannath Temple are not final. Read Para 5 of order
2. The media,especially Deccan Chronicle,is distorting yesterday's Order to give d impression that d SC has directed that non-Hindus also be allowed entry into #Jagannath Temple subject to certain conditions.This is untrue.D Order clearly says it is a mere suggestion to consider
3. All stakeholders to Temple Management have the opportunity to now present their views to the Amicus Mr. Gopal Subramanium and the Committee to the constituted by the Union Government. This is the time to impress upon the Government to #FreeOurTemples.
4. The SC has expressly clarified in Para 9 that d Centre will look into management of Shrines of all faiths, not just Temples. Also, d grievance redressal mechanism under Section 92 of d CPC referred to by s SC in Para 10 of d Order is clearly applicable to all faiths #Jagannath
5. I repeat - all recommendations made by the District Judge with respect to the #Jagannath Temple are only recommendations and subject to stakeholder inputs and further orders of the Court. So instead of fretting, let us apply ourselves to the issue constructively.
6. The Report of the District Judge will be made available on the Website of the Supreme Court and the Ministry of Culture. Please go through it and get cracking on collecting data and marshalling arguments. Pls don't waste time in bellyaching. #Jagannath
7. Para 14 of the Order clearly ropes in the Ministry of Culture as I stated yesterday. This is the time to get this Ministry to act and address our concerns. We have an SC Order that says so. Start working. #Jagannath.

Her Ladyship, d sole woman, Ms. Indu Malhotra,is d sole voice of dissent & agrees with d position of the #ReadytoWait campaign in principle.Her Ladyship has acknowledged that there exists a distinction between diversity and discrimination.I rest my case. Swamiye Saranam Ayyappa!

1. Each time I hear any version of "Maa Telugu Thalliki", the State Anthem of Andhra Pradesh, including the version from Shekhar Kammula's movie Leader, I have goosebumps and I am moved to my core. Every time. What an amazing country this is!
2. Every region of this country and every sub-region has its own unique identity which it has fought hard to keep alive. And sadly, is forced to continue to fight to protect it from those who can't stand the fact that this civilization is still alive and is offering resistance.
3. I have lived in undivided Andhra Pradesh,Tamizh Naad, Bengal and Delhi. The sheer diversity, d richness of each place, their histories (especially of the last 1200 years), the impact of their histories on their psyches as societies and as individuals are not difficult to miss

For an ideology which claims to be based on rationalism and atheism, deificiation and hero worship have long been central to the dravidian ideology. Guess every ideology which draws inspiration from communism has the attributes of a cult.
2. The so-called believers in iconoclasm are the ones who inevitably crave for iconization for eternity. And these people ridicule Idol worship. The irony! Wither rationalism/pagutharivu?
3. At least stay true to your allegedly rational ideals and don't ask for a monument in your memory when you claim to have stood for iconoclasm all your life and fought against theism.

1. Hearing under way in #377IPC. Arguments being submitted on behalf of Christian intervenors. The Court is examining the meanings of "order of nature" and "carnal intercourse". Justice Nariman enquires from the Counsel the definition of "order of nature".
2. The Counsel for Christian intervenors submits that #377IPC is Constitutionally valid. He submits that he has not been able to find the meaning of "order of nature". Justice Nariman observes that perhaps "order of nature" could mean "that which leads to procreation".
3. Justice Chandrachud weighs in on the meaning of "carnal intercourse" and asks what is the need for the word "carnal". He notes that since "carnal" means lustful and "intercourse" itself assumes existence of lust, why add "carnal" to "intercourse" #377IPC.

1. Everyday, as a Hindu, you are bound to find something worthy of your outrage despite your best intentions. You will feel disheartened and wonder if the tide will ever turn, and if this land and its culture will ever see better days. #NewYearResolution
2. Every controversy is proof of how determined and sophisticated #BreakingIndia forces are and how deep their tentacles run. That they find willing supporters for their cause at a price should tell us how deep and widespread the cancer is #NewYearResolution
3. While I am aware that social media is a powerful tool of narrative building and propaganda, it is absolutely useless unless it is backed by concrete efforts on the ground. This is no more just a newsworthy controversy to be debated in TV studios. #NewYearResolution
