I had a chance to see Little Women at the cinema. Greta Gerwig follows up Lady Bird with a fantastic adaptation that, I believe, enhances the original material. Great writing and directing. And phenomenal performances from Saoirse Ronan and Florence Pugh.
Interestingly the theatre was about 90% women.
Studio Ghibli’s catalogue is coming to Netflix outside the US/Canada (and Japan) from February onwards. I’m really excited about this! 🎉

On the devastations that Aadhaar has wrought.
@prasanna_s Corbyn is a huge gift from Labour to the Tories. Any other opposition leader would have a huge lead going into any polls against the incompetence of the current government.
@jackerhack Maybe someone with artistic skills could do something like this?

I'm a lawyer. I feel most competent in constitutional law. This means I'm constantly recovering from the trauma of being alive in these times.
In my doctoral work, I'm trying to understand constitutional claims outside courts - or the gulf between the Constitution of India & the constitution of India.
I'm currently teaching the law & science module to science undergrads, developing an RPG for children to work the Constitution democratically, and writing writing writing.
