SIX STEPS TO HELP POOR WOMEN WITHSTAND CRISES : In low-income families, women have faced far more vulnerabilities than men during the pandemic. These priority areas for intervention could form the backbone of a new resilience for them in future disasters. indiatogether.org/six-pandemic-w…

Ashwin Mahesh (india) tweeted :

'G7' is not something that people living in those countries care about much. It's at best some kind of passing news about where their leaders' travels. That's why their statement on internet freedoms is meaningless - they could never implement such a low standard themselves.

Production by PSUs now appears to be a big part of the plan to get the number of vaccinations going faster. But one of them says it can't start until September, and the other one until November. I assume they mean 2020 (one never knows with PSUs). But even if that happened ...

It is early day, but I'm optimistic about a few judges in the SC - Chandrachud, Bhat, Ramana himself in a quiet way, and some others could push to restore greater balance between the judiciary and the executive in the coming months. We need that !!

Judges not only rejected it, but also set the bar higher for anyone wanting to curb media reports of things in court in the future. EC's self goal is not surprising. Like many others in our broken politics, it's so bad that it cant even do the bad things efficiently !!

Election Commission gets properly slapped down by the Supreme Court. Its plea to expunge the remarks of the Madras HC that its officers should be held responsible for the deaths of so many was rejected. Its plea that court proceedings should be made public was also rejected.
