On Monday, Caravan published an article ‘How Essar Handed Out 195 iPads as Diwali Gifts to Top Politicians, Bureaucrats and Journalists in 2010: List 1’ and what followed was an outpouring of reactions to the piece of news on Twitter. This our selection of popular tweets on #Essar:
Point is why only Barkha, Rajdeep, Thapar, PronoyRoy, Shekhar Gupta bunch was categorically selected to give I-pads by #Essar ?

They are big on gifting after all
My favourite is the black iPad Air 2, 128 GB, with the Targus keyboard case. Just saying. Unrelated q: what's Essar's handle, guys?

Back to basics
@Essar what a crap profile description. Change your social media manager. I've spotted 3 grammatical errors already, and employees? In 2015?

To better use
I want a free iPad Essar. Are you listening? I will put it to a lot better use than Netas watching porn on it. That's so 2005!
