With a hung assembly in Uttar Pradesh, the focus is now on governor Vishnu Kant Shastri. Sutapa Mukherjee spoke to him. Excerpts:
Naseer Ganai / In happy times and sad, Habba Khatun’s sensuous songs make both young and old emotional. With the never-ending conflict bringing tragedies to every doorstep, Habba’s lyrics of separation amplify their mourning.
Haima Deshpande / In India, only those relationships between a man and a woman are considered to be legitimate when there is a marriage between the two.
Jayanta Oinam / Virat Kohli, 33, had recently stepped down as India's T20I captain and was subsequently removed as the ODI captain.
Ashutosh Sharma / A Mahila Congress leader, who is the face of the ‘Ladki Hoon, Lad Sakti Hoon’ campaign, however, has accused the party of anti-women bias after she was denied a ticket.
