PB’s twisty take on the top five headlines of the day.
1. PoK surgical strike: Markets on alert, Rupee sees biggest plunge since Brexit vote
Don’t blame the Rupee but blame the brokerages. Indian must be worried that these issues which should have been best left to Army are going to utilize already low bandwidth in this government.

2. Post strikes: Rajnath Singh chairs all-party meet
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and NSA Ajit Doval were present at the meet attended by BJP chief Amit Shah, Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, CPI(M) leader Sitaram Yechury, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav, Union Minister and LJP leader Ram Vilas Paswan and NCP leader Sharad Pawar among others.
3. Unable To Forge Cauvery Truce, Uma Bharti Offers A Hunger Strike Instead
