True to style, a judge salutes himself for his bravery

A person who had the famous distinction of hearing a case against himself while serving as the country’s Chief Justice, has reportedly written an autobiography titled Justice for the Judge. The former judge had been accused of sexual harassment by a Supreme Court staffer, and true to the title of his book, proceeded to be both Justice and Judge in the matter. Indeed, many expressed fascination with his ability to exist in two places at one time — in the judge’s chair, and in the dock as the accused. The judge, a certified expert at separating his powers in this way, is now also a member of parliament. The memoir is said to be “no-holds-barred” — as in, no one holds the bar at all.

This radical redefinition of Pride was celebrated by many, most of all the actor himself.

The exam question from the education board’s perspective

A sociology examination reportedly contained the following multiple-choice question: “The unprecedented scale and spread of anti-Muslim violence in Gujarat in 2002 took place under which government?” In response, a national education board quickly cleared the air about this unexpected break in the simulation. Since the correct answer was actually “what anti-Muslim violence?” and the choices did not contain this, the board is set to seriously investigate the matter and fix the technical “error.” Claiming that it will take “strict action” against whoever did this, the board also suggested there was nothing to be upset about — since nothing is real and the truth doesn’t matter anyway.

A white man has something to say

In the wake of Barbados becoming an independent Republic, the nation’s former colonizer made a brave speech about the ills of slavery. Admirers called it a “grown-up conversation led by a future king.” It is common knowledge that the royals in question are constrained from saying anything reasonable due to Constitutional obligations. The Prince, in simply acknowledging that a horrific part of history was indeed horrific, was therefore heroic. It is a case of simple mathematics.
