Well played, @ICC. Yuvi Forever., to be as happy as a croissant makes Dharmendra.
@sujoy_g <3 @RanvirShorey Best film. much thunder and lightning as I write that it feels wrong not to have an assistant named Igor.Nauseating to read British journalists justify the FIA penalty to Sebastian Vettel at the Canadian Grand Prix. Cham… headline, but, to be fair, there was only one actor in that film. giant has left us. Girish Karnad, playwright, director and actor with a stupendous voice, is no more. What a life, what creations. Salute.Happy birthday son!!! @realmikefox I am so proud of you ! Don’t sit in a parked car with a girl!

This isn't over... #Vettel #F1 #CanadianGP #FIA't stop watching this. Viva Vettel. #F1 #CanadianGP"I don't think people should boo at Lewis." Vettel is just WINNING this race hard. #F1 #CanadianGPHamilton's car with the Number Two placard is the picture every F1 writer will want for their race review this week. #F1 #CanadianGPVettel switches the boards 🔀 #CanadianGP 🇨🇦 #F1
Retweeted by Raja SenWhoa. That [1] and [2] placard shuffle from Vettel. Moment of the year, come what may. Staking his claim. #F1 #CanadianGPOh, the applause for Seb. Bravissimo, Montreal. #F1 #CanadianGPDisappointing, graceless words from Hamilton. This is not how a true champion behaves. #F1 #CanadianGPWhat’s Seb supposed to do?Crazy ,the car stepped that point he was a passenger.
Retweeted by Raja Sen"Is he going to boycott the podium?" "Where is Sebastian?" Crazy scenes here. #F1 #CanadianGPI don't know the procedure for appealing a penalty, but this one deserves to be overturned. Ridiculous. Making a mo… stuff from Vettel. Great drive, great pole, great race. Driver of the day, no question. #F1 #CanadianGP"Where the hell am I supposed to go?" Can feel Vettel's pain here. "I am focussed, but they are stealing the race from us." #F1 #CanadianGPHorrible, horrible decision from the FIA. Penalising Vettel sets a very wrong message. All he did was control his car! #F1 #CanadianGPThe Red Bull resurgence might have been exaggerated. Verstappen is on new Medium tyres but is nowhere near the top… consistently faster than Vettel ahead. Reeling him in. This should be interesting. #F1 #CanadianGPStunning lap from Hamilton. (Still hasn't matched the reds in Sector 3, though.) #F1 #CanadianGP Ferrari really does look mighty in the third sector. #F1 #CanadianGP! Vettel hammering out a lap straight out of the gate. Perfect, when needed most. #F1 #CanadianGPLap 24. The top 3 separated by 4.5 seconds now as the pitstop window tantalisingly beckons. #F1 #CanadianGPLeClerc turning up the wick. It'll take a few fastest laps to catch Hamilton, though. #F1 #CanadianGPLap 19. Purple sectors from Sainz and Hulkenberg. The hard tyres are coming into their own now. #F1 #CanadianGPLeClerc needs to close the gap on Hamilton for the next 2-3 laps and then pit, forcing Mercedes to react. #F1 #CanadianGPThe Ferrari medium tyres are two laps older than the ones the Mercedes boys are wearing. Not that the laptimes show it. #F1 #CanadianGPGasly looking very shoddy on the hard tyres. Stopping this early is clearly not the right call... #F1 #CanadianGPCompelling battle. Verstappen looking very handy indeed. (Vettel would call him handsome.) #F1 #CanadianGPVerstappen chasing Bottas should give us a clear picture of how much that Red Bull can do on this power circuit. #F1 #CanadianGPThis is a good test for LeClerc. Can he put the heat on Hamilton ahead? Make him the meat in a Ferrari sandwich? #F1 #CanadianGPSolid start from Vettel, but Hamilton keeping pace behind him. Look to Verstappen for the drama, though. Here comes… Canada. Give us a helluva race. #F1 #CanadianGP<3 Full-on commentator love. Listen. #F1 @s3rioussam Dammit, Sharma. Gotta buy now.Chanced upon this gorgeous poster for Black Swan.
