The BJP's celebration of three years of rule has meant multiple bashes for journalists of different kinds. The TV crowd was feted separately from print and digital journalists, one for each category,  combined with other segments such as financial institution professionals. The Amit Shah part of the picture was a repeat on each occasion, journalists and others around his table edging in to catch every word. Even as senior ministers were secondary draws.            

Union minister for Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi has been blitzing her way through the online petition site change.org to solicit support for her draft national policy for women. After a personalised letter to all those on the site's email list, she sent out another personalised letter today to thank signatories for support, and for  'out of the box' suggestions sent for the policy document.The only snag is several  recipients of her email had not signed any petition, nor sent any recommendations nor supported the policy document, leave alone sending 'out of the box' suggestions.
