Djokovic liked Google Glass, Farhan Akhtar is still singing, Paul McCartney remains the cutest boy-bander ever, and RIP Khushwant Singh
You know the best thing about Twitter? Everyone and their PR Team is on it ! So whether you want to know just how many brilliant columns William Dalrymple can write in a week, or you are interesting in checking if Priyanka Chopra is still talking like a 16 year old Valley Girl, just head over there and find out for yourself! It is a time sink for stalkers like us!
Here’s what we discovered this week!
10. We are not the only ones in this predicament
Friday, Friday, still drunk from Thursday on Friday! #singlegirlproblems

9.The era of the hyperbaric chamber is over. The era of the Google Glass is here. #DjokerForTheWin
8. Farhan Akhtar- singer- is still a thing and now people are paying money to watch him sing!(why you not direct no more?)

7. Baby-faced Paul McCartney played Holi in India in 1968 and looked absolutely adorable doing so!
6. Rahul Khanna- who calls himself a “Boutique Bollywood Actor” on Twitter, is also a bit of a gentleman’s columnist and genuinely funny!
After wildebeest migrating, the most terrifying & awe inspiring phenomenon one could witness is Indians fighting over a restaurant bill.

5. Majorly PhD continues to say what we have all been thinking
Now that NSA probably record all calls in Pakistan for 30 days, is there any way to demand free voicemail service from them?

4. Over at Genderlog, this week’s curator Arati Kumar Rao shared some interesting insights about gender issues and how they’re captured on camera. We recommend the entire week’s feed. But this image especially, made us pause and think.
3. Everyone mourned the passing of Khushwant Singh and celebrated his joi de vivre yesterday. This was our favourite eulogy, because it was by a pre-eminent historian and not just by someone who remembered having seen the name of his books in a library somewhere!
Voltaire said that while one might flatter the living, the dead deserved nothing less than the truth. Khushwant would have agreed… — Ramachandra Guha (@Ram_Guha) March 20, 2014
There was nothing petty or insecure about Khushwant; unlike other famous Indians, he welcomed jokes at his own expense, and criticism too. — Ramachandra Guha (@Ram_Guha) March 20, 2014
2. Media- the world over-refuses to recognise women as people in their own right, even at death
Bums me out to see so many news outlets calling L’Wren Scott “Mick Jagger’s girlfriend.” She was a successful designer in her own right. – J — Go Fug Yourself (@fuggirls) March 17, 2014
1. And finally -because it’s the weekend and you deserve to treat yourself my fabulous girlfriends, only the two bad-assest men in the world- Magneto and Prof. Xavier themselves, enjoying the sun at Coney Island!
