For someone who is taking on the might of the state, Ashish Kumar Chaturvedi’s thin frame seems particularly vulnerable as he wheels his bicycle on the Gwalior Sessions Court premises, with a black backpack slung over one shoulder.The 27-year-old whistleblower in the gargantuan Vyapam admission and recruitment scam in Madhya Pradesh has faced numerous threats to his life ever since he became a complainant in the case in 2014.
Eleven years, two hundred and twenty-two days. Mohammad Abdul Kaleem remembers, to a day, the time he has spent behind bars for a crime he did not commit, as the courts recently underlined. “Imagine sitting in a room like this, even for three days,” he says, gesturing to the narrow sitting room of his friend’s house in the by-lanes of Moosarambagh in Hyderabad “We were inside for over 11 years, seeing only walls and bars for 24 hours.
It was a chance that led Jonas Olsson Volvo executive and founder of the 14-member choir called The Bangalore Men , to the works of Gustav Holst “The choir was wondering what to do next.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
