Gal Gadot has shared a surprisingly clear look at Wonder Woman’s new costume in the upcoming Wonder Woman 1984, a sequel to 2017’s blockbuster film. We see Gadot in full costumed glory in the still, which she captioned simply, “She’s back,” with the iconic Wonder Woman pose emoji, and the hashtag the film’s team has been using in all promotional material, #WW84. Wonder Woman 1984 takes a huge leap time-wise - the first film was set during World War 1. Wonder Woman returned for a supporting role in 2017’s Justice League, which failed to match her solo film’s critical and commercial success. Wonder Woman 1984 is scheduled for a November 2019 release.

Fake forwards that are circulated every morning and shared a thousand times without any supporting facts or evidence is not a new practice in India. But what comes as a surprise is the increasing number of killings, mob deaths and lynching cases due to these forwards. End to end encryption on the application makes it all the more difficult as no third party, including the company itself, has access to messages shared between two numbers. Another message accompanied by a reportedly fake video of child abductors has been doing rounds that has cost lives all across the country. “Even people who are illiterate and cannot read might be triggered by the gore visuals that are presented on these fake videos, resulting in a larger audience being misled,” she adds.

Post the usual small-talk, she wants to know my views on the tolerance/intolerance debate. Muslims, I tell her, at least the ones I speak to, are scared of living in this new India. They come from people I know, some of whom I call my friends, others are members of my extended family. When did bigotry become so easy, and when did that bigot enter my drawing room? Ultimately, we weaken ourselves, but in the meanwhile I’m still wondering what to do about the bigot in my drawing room.

The official tally of separations is now nearly 4,000 children, not including March and the beginning of April 2018. A border patrol official on the call said children are sometimes separated from the adults they are traveling with if officials suspect the relationship is fraudulent. Reuters reported that around 13 percent of family separations in the 17-month period through February were because of alleged fraud.
