Dive In

Who uproots herself to collect raindrops in the basins of her collarbone? Who? Why? I wanted to. Maybe because I was a desert in my past life, my heart aching for the rain that never drenched my brown body. Or, an underfed river that yearned to be more Rubenesque. Maybe a farmer whose mind was occupied by an endless dream of a drizzle. I’d go anywhere for rain. Rain and I are ancient lovers.

This is from an outlandish piece published on MoneyControl that went instantly viral for all the wrong reasons. Think of it as the literary equivalent of a movie that is soooo bad it’s good. We laughed all the way through. We hope you will too… because it’s Friday. And thank god for that!

Big Story

Farm proposal gets a big thumbs down

The TLDR: The government proposed, and the farmers disposed. Their answer: a big fat no to the Centre’s first and most significant concession—to suspend the farm laws for 18 months. This means the head-on collision over the proposed tractor rally on Republic Day remains a real possibility. An unexpected wrinkle: some experts say that suspending the farm laws may not be feasible under constitutional procedure.
