Dive In

 

It is very unfortunate that some people for their own selfish interests are trying to target our institution. Among our employees are local residents, and people from UP and across the country. Of these, over 80% are Hindu, the rest are Muslims, Christians and others. Nobody in our organisation is allowed to conduct any religious activity.

That’s the statement put out by Lulu Mall in Lucknow—where some men were spotted offering namaz in the middle of its premises—for inexplicable reasons. Owned by a UAE company, the mall has been the target of a social media campaign that alleges it only employs Muslims. Some people tried to enter the mall to recite the Hanuman Chalisa—while Hindutva groups demanded the building be demolished. FYI: The Uttar Pradesh government is not at all happy with this ruckus as it comes amid efforts to woo big-bang foreign investments in the state.

 

Don’t miss out on the fun! Everyone who attends our online pub quiz has a brilliant time. One big reason: the company is excellent—including our awesome quiz master, Anushree Kaushal—and the camaraderie among splainer subscribers is truly unique. So sign up to join us for an hour of uncomplicated mazaa on Zoom. The deets: Saturday, July 23 at 5:00 pm. A beer in hand is entirely optional!

Big Story

A killing in Africa: When truth meets bestselling fiction

The TLDR: The highly anticipated movie adaptation of Delia Owens’ ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’ is mired in an unexpected controversy over her past. The source: her involvement in a killing in Zambia—which cast the media spotlight on the racist side of wildlife conservation, which often values an animal more than a black life.
