Only a small section of the Assamese civil society is opposing the evictions (“Why eviction drives in Assam are no longer facing resistance”) and police encounters.

Fight against leprosy
It is a very good article (“Should India fight leprosy with an antibiotic that might lead to TB drug resistance?”) on leprosy and the government’s irresponsible attitude towards public healthcare. In a way, the government is running away from the simple task of timely detection and instead promoting drugs to benefit pharmaceutical companies with poor people’s lives at stake. I appreciate the person who has put so much effort into gathering all the data and conducting the interviews.
This disease is a longer infestation. (“Why is the Bombay High Court staying its own bail orders?”) The bail granted to my brother K Muralidharan, charged under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act, on health grounds was stayed by the court for a month and then extended. However, finally the Supreme Court dismissed the appeal against it. – KB Kannampilly
Good journalism (“What free food rations hide: A rollback of social security in India”). Keep it up. – Mario Duddu
