this weekend i am:
celebrating being finished with work; packing for the next month of travels; and heading to coimbatore on sunday.
interesting things from around the interwebs:
ellen speaks out about mississippi’s religious freedom act. because ellen always says it best. less hate, more love.
social media posts, particularly on instagram, are now being used as evidence in cases against business people who claim to not have assets. this is kind of crazy.

mumford & sons will donate the profits from their upcoming charlotte show to an lgbtq organization. hats off to these guys.
in case you missed it:
a post from this time last year about bangalore bus conductors. it’s more interesting that it sounds and almost makes me nostalgic for all my hours spent on buses. almost.
note: i am going to be travelling for the next month, so this will be the last weekly roundup until i return to bangalore in mid-may. however, i’ve got a lot of posts queued up for while i’m gone, so be sure to check those out. full travel recaps will be coming your way in a month!
