Ajmal Kasab and Amish school massacre

Ajmal Kasab who is dead now, was given due process, and legal help by the Indian state. That’s definitely something Maharashtra and Union governments can be proud of.

Devil’s dozen

After Bombay Scottish School, Bombay Dyeing, BSE and Bombay Times (TOI) were vandalised, terrorised, and uglified (rhymes) in the past few days, the below poster was stuck on all Talkies correspondent’s lodges yesterday night.   Talkies editorial syndicate met at our super secret location and unanimously agreed (1-0) to take the cue.
