I grew up in a respectable middle class South Calcutta (as it was called then) neighbourhood defined by Harish Mukherjee Road and the very well known SSKM Hospital. The big crossing near our ancestral home had a gurudwara and a mosque facing each other across a wide road. Plus, police traffic restrictions willed that all immersion processions after any kind of Hindu puja take Harish Mukherjee Road so that the parallel main road carrying the tram lines and bus routes was left free for traffic.
With the latest changes in the council of ministers, PM Modi has reaffirmed his role as a leader in a hurry to get things done, not get bogged down by having to engage in the give-and-take of traditional politics. He sees himself as the vote-getter with a direct connect to the people who leaves it to BJP president Amit Shah to do the arithmetic of balancing traditional constituencies.
Now that Nandan Nilekani, as chairman of Infosys, is actively engaged in reconstituting the board and finding a new CEO, public focus and attention have shifted. From recording the acrimony between the board and N R Narayana Murthy, there is now speculation over the likely outcome of Nilekani’s efforts. While the advent of a powerful and distinctive board is more or less taken for granted, the field of conjecture is wide open on what kind of a the somewhat battered is likely to have.
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".
