On the Brunch radar

We love how Harry Potter is always in the news. But hate the thought of Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra as the new Ram and Lakhan. Here's a round-up of things we loved this week and those that ought to be shoved.

Love it
How Ajinkya Rahane went from being dropped in the Dhaka ODI to becoming captain for the Zimbabwe tour – all because of the bickering Dhoni and Kohli camps
* That some of us cannot ever see Bobby Jindal as a US presidential candidate, but only as a hashtag #BobbyJindalSoWhite
* How Harry Potter is always in the news
* That Chennai finally gets the Metro. (I say this because for a year, I travelled by the awful MRTS local trains)
* Twitter accounts @Deepikacupcake (posts pics of cupcakes that look like Deepika) and @RanveerAsKitten, which is self-explanatory

Shove it
Alok Nath
* The Gmail Undo button for being utterly pointless – because if you get 30 extra seconds to undo a sent email, you will probably regret sending it when it’s too late (perhaps just after the undo grace period) #FirstWorldProblems
* The thought of Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra as the new Ram and Lakhan *shudder*
* Subramanian Swamy – for calling homosexuality “a genetic disorder”. Oh..kay, so it’s a criminal offence because...?
* Those of us intimidated (and befuddled) by the Form 16
