Ashwini: Wish now at least Twitter gets on Track
The new IT, Communications & Railways Minister Mr Ashwini Vaishnaw has taken charge of the new portfolio with glimpse of what’s in store. Twitter may still gracefully abide or try to (as they say in Mumbai) ‘eda banke peda khana’. That is rustically ‘try to play the fool and pluck the fruit’.
TEEN-ish Attempt May Get TN ENTanglEd In Central TE-NEts
As part of DMK’s electoral promises, Stalin is perhaps forced to make moves to help TN wriggle out of the NEET structure for Medical education admissions. Unwittingly Stalin maybe moving away from a direction that was showing him in more statesmanlike light. Medical education comes under the Centre’s jurisdiction or ‘Union’-diction (if you will).
The Union government has informed the Madras High Court that the AK Rajan Committee instituted by the TN Government may actually be an affront to the Supreme Court and against the National Medical Commission Act, 2019. We are hopeful that Stalin, the Statesman will soon pick issues more of his stature. He has a lot of work to do in improving the lot of citizens in Tamil Nadu. As Chief Minister, he has made many good moves. He cannot afford to get entangled in something of no value to nation or state building.

Fifty-five years after England won the Football World Cup, they find themselves again in the final of a major tournament for a European entity. The Euro Cup final may just be the redemption, the team must be hoping for, given its Sterling show thus far. Marking the den (dugout in the final) for the three lions was noteworthy.
But Italian defence is a tough nut to crack… doesn’t Giovanni easily. The English defence may also be left going in Ciro-cles and rendered Immobile. By Jupiter! the final promises to be a great match. Whether Rome or Rahim get the Cup, the final may eagerly Grealish.
Unforced Federrors and Hurkacz’s Hurrahs
For the first time in a long while, Roger Federer tasted a straight set loss. His 6-3, 7-6, 6-0 loss to Hubert Hurkacz means he exits the All England Championships (Wimbledon) without a record-breaking 21st Grand Slam win. But with 31 unforced errors to Hurkacz’s 12, Federer may also agree that it just was not his day. Whether he will play again at Wimbledon, is a big Question. But the Champion that he is, his quest for the 21st will surely be on. Will He Be Don?
