+Human Rights Watch just released this report on education showing school authorities in India persistently discriminate against children from marginalized communities, denying them their right to education. HRW says the Indian government should adopt more effective measures to monitor the treatment of vulnerable children.  Where do the various parties stand on education? Which party is best placed to address this issue?

It is commonly said that the road to Delhi passes through Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh (UP), India's most populous state.   UP Politics 101: Understanding the most important state this election: #indiavotes   #indiaelections2014  
 
Get a lesson on UP politics, including the role of caste, religion & criminal records. #indiavotes http://ow.ly/vUHoP

The leader of India’s Aam Aadmi Party, Arvind Kejriwal is featured on the voting page for the  +TIME 100 list of the most influential people in the world.
The page shows the numbers from viewers who vote whether or not Kejriwal should be on the list. Intriguingly, he seems to be the only one with live votes coming in, and at a fast page! He is at least 2 million votes ahead of many other world leaders, prompting a few social media users to ask if 'fake' followers are pushing up his numbers. What do you think? #indiaelections2014   #elections2014   #AAP

Still a lot of discussion online today about Parveen Togaria's so-called 'anti-Muslim hate speech'. The hashtag #ArrestTogadia is trending on Twitter today. What are you seeing being discussed on social media?
