Dive In


[BJP chief] Nadda said that all regional parties in the country would be finished and only the BJP would remain. If this is their plan, our survival is at stake and we’ll have to think about it.

That’s what a Janata Dal United leader said of rising expectations of a split in the ruling coalition in Bihar—between the BJP and JDU chief/Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. There are also clear signs of a détente between JDU and its traditional rival Rashtriya Janata Dal (of Lalu Yadav fame). Both parties have called an all-party meet, and big announcements are expected. Brace yourselves for a fresh round of neta-giri.

Big Story

The great geological mystery: Why is Earth speeding up?

The TLDR: For many millennia, our planet has been slowing down—almost imperceptibly. But for the past couple of years, it has suddenly gathered speed. Scientists just can’t figure out why. If it carries on this way, we may have to do something about it—but it may create total tech chaos.
