Here’s a round-up of things we loved this week, and those that ought to be shoved:

Love it:

* That you can now watch uncensored HBO original shows on Hotstar

* That a pub in London has a small note in the toilet offering to rescue women stranded on awful Tinder dates

* The Tokyo library hotel, where guests sleep in bookshelves

* Nil Battey Sannata – the film you must watch, with your mother

* That environmentalist Sunita Narain is on Time magazine’s annual list of the ‘100 Most Influential People’ (note to all of you obsessing over Priyanka Chopra)

Shove it:

* The first episode of Game of Thrones season 6: because, really, if you watched the trailer – you pretty much watched this episode

* The sahibs and memsahibs at BBC for asking: “should India erase its snake-charming culture to embrace modernity?”

* That we read The Vigil Idiot’s review of Fan – and can’t watch the movie even though we really want to

* The Sunny Leone sex stories on the Juggernaut app

* That Delhi’s National Museum of Natural History was destroyed by a fire – as were our collective childhood memories. And the realisation that we hadn’t visited it in years, decades even
