Dive In


We have not been able to sleep, eat and live peacefully. We are fed up with the scary dreams and are returning your valuables.

That’s what a gang of thieves wrote in a letter as they returned 16 statues stolen from a 300-year-old Balaji temple in Uttar Pradesh. Guess this is what they call ‘stealer’s remorse’ lol!


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode’, the splainer team looks at mental health issues—be it in the army where suicides are rising—or among parents suing their kids for not giving them a grandchild. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.
