Dive In


India scripts history. At a time when 1.3 billion Indians are marking Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, a daughter of India hailing from a tribal community born in a remote part of eastern India has been elected our President!

That’s what PM Narendra Modi tweeted after Draupadi Murmu won the election to become the 15th President of India. She scored 64.03% of the votes—including a significant number from opposition parties. According to the BJP, as many as 17 MPs and 126 MLAs defied party lines to support her. ICYMI, we did a Big Story with all the details on Murmu. 


Stuff to check out: On the latest episode of the splainer podcast ‘Press Decode,’ the team discusses the great bra ban and other bizarre exam rules—and racism in wildlife conservation. Be sure to head over to the IVM website, Spotify or Apple Podcasts to listen to it.

Big Story

Exit, Mario: Italy’s big political crisis

The TLDR: Prime Minister Mario Draghi was forced to resign—after the coalition supporting him collapsed. Now, you may not be that interested in Italian politics, but the leader who replaces him—likely a far-right leader—may throw the EU into total disarray—right when it is most vulnerable.
