Amul has won hearts again with it's witty take on Nitish Kumar and Lalu Yadav's rife. Twitter
  • Heightened political drama in Bihar leaves everybody baffled
  • Nitish Kumar breaks up from the Congress-RJD-JDU Mahagatbandhan
  • Amul takes a witty dig at the Bihar episode

July 30, 2017: In an exciting turn of events, the government in Bihar changed from a coalition between Congress, Lalu Prasad Yadav’s RJD, and Nitish Kumar’s JD(U) to one between JD(U) and NDA, all within 24 hours. And Amul’s take on the entire scene is not to be missed!

Following his resignation from the post of Chief Minister of Bihar, Nitish Kumar went on to take oath as the CM again the next morning, with NDA’s support.

Nitish says he quit over corruption charges on deputy CM Tejashwi Yadav, which RJD and Congress termed as “back-stabbing” and “opportunism”.

Kumar had a long association with NDA previously but had parted ways immediately after Narendra Modi was announced as their prime ministerial candidate.

With the news of the breaking up of the Mahagatbandhan spread, the world social media came alive. Some talked about the hilarious ‘divorce’ of Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav, while others acknowledged the blossoming bromance between Modi and Kumar. The social media was abuzz with opinions on the matter, and speculation over the next move. The entire drama was very amusing and to understand it better, one should look no further than Twitter-pictures, tweets, and memes flooded Twitter. But perhaps, Amul’s take on the new rife about the ongoing Bihar episode summed it all perfectly.

Continuing with its legacy to take a witty and unabashed take in contemporary and political issues, the brand released its cartoon featuring the two ministers.

The cartoon shows CM Nitish Kumar waving goodbye to Prasad who is seen trying to adjust the flame of his dimming lantern. Also not to be missed is the lotus in Kumar’s hand. The caption aptly reads “Jat maṅgni, Paṭna byaah” which has received applause from readers and netizens alike.

The Amul Butter ad featuring the Amul girl has been a constant on billboards and in newspapers. Featuring cleverly thought out puns on current events of the day, they are witty, unapologetic and get away with almost everything that a common man wants to say without seeking controversy!

This is not the first time when Amul political cartoons amused the viewers

And certainly not the first time when Bihar and its troubled tales have been picked by Amul

Bottles of Jack Daniel's whiskeys are displayed at Rossi's Deli in San Francisco

Jack Daniel's is the world's most popular whiskey brand, but until recently, few people knew the liquor was created by Nathan "Nearest" Green, an enslaved Black man who mentored Daniel.

"We've always known," says Debbie Staples, a great-great-granddaughter of Green's who heard the story from her grandmother. … "He made the whiskey, and he taught Jack Daniel. And people didn't believe it … it's hurtful. I don't know if it was because he was a Black man."

The findings from preliminary studies on possible stem cell-based Covid-19 treatments are frequently being exaggerated through press releases, social media and uncritical news media reports.

Amid the rush to find quick treatments for Covid-19 last year, the world saw a global race to find new stem cell-based treatments. Now, researchers report that such therapies were filled with violations of government regulations, inflated medical claims and distorted public communication. There are reports of patients suffering physical harm -- including blindness and death -- from unproven stem cell therapies.

"Efforts to rapidly develop therapeutic interventions should never occur at the expense of the ethical and scientific standards that are at the heart of responsible clinical research and innovation," said lead study author Laertis Ikonomou, associate professor of oral biology at University at Buffalo, New York. There are clinics offering unproven and unsafe "stem cell" therapies that promise to prevent Covid-19 by strengthening the immune system or improving overall health, the researchers noted in the paper published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
