Some tweets that caught our attention this week
'India 2020' is the theme chosen for the anniversary issue
Rajesh Ramaswamy on the books that are currently catching his attention.
What’s happening to Lalit Modi? How is the enquiry into his ‘wrongdoings’ going? Is the BCCI now better informed on all his ‘crimes’? Is he the villain the BCCI painted him to be? What’s happening to Shashi Tharoor? Was he really a part ‘owner’ the IPL Kochi team?
Even as one types this, the ticker on NDTV states that Lalit Modi will not resign. This, after what has been a dramatic day of speculation surrounding the exit of the top boss of the billion dollar cricketing franchise that is the Indian Premier League. Modi's last appearance on camera saw him cool and confident as always, even as news channels relayed visuals ad nauseum of BCCI officials, politicians baying for his blood.
