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.

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

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
