Davos, Padmaavat, Karni Sena and the ASEAN Summit

There is never a dull moment in our country. What an interesting and shocking diversity of events have taken place in the past few days.

After a much applauded speech of Prime Minister Modi at Davos, marred only by the out-of-place tweet of the Congress President quoting a left wing publication, and the demand of Congress leaders to discuss the plight of farmers and the poor in Davos, I was expecting to see India reach a new high with ten leaders of the ASEAN countries together for the first time in India.
