Flipkart's explanation was: 

Amazon was quick to retort:

Let's see how this battle untimately unfolds. But for now, our controversy-loving tweeple seem to be deriving as much fun as they can out of this battle between the two most prominent e-commerce giants in India.

Retired SC judge Markandey Katju today tweeted some advice for BJP for the upcoming Delhi polls.

 

 

It didn't take much time for the Twitterati to start slamming the 'sexist' statement.

 

As a controversy started, Katju decided to come to his own defence.

 

And then the retired justice came up with a blog trying to explain his original tweet.

 

Which, also, was not spared some slamming.

 

Amusingly, this comes just a month after he had remarked how single women are more prone to have psychological problems.

This is not the first time he has attracted attention for his Twitter activities. Remember the time he turned into a 'shayar' and attempted to set up a 'mehfil' on Twitter? #KatjuKaMushaira

Wonder what's coming up next on his timeline.

A simple hashtag #putoutyourbats is all it took. And what a collective worldwide outpouring of grief for Phillip Hughes it resulted in.

Hughes died yesterday, just days before his 26th birthday, having been struck by a Sean Abbott delivery two days earlier, during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia.

Sydney father Paul Taylor started the trend when he posted a simple image of his cricket bat and blue Australian cap resting beside his front door.

"We've all played cricket in one way or other. We've all grown up with a bat and ball," he wrote.

"This is our way to connect and show our sadness."

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist posted a photograph of his kids' miniature bats lined up on the front gate along with a simple message: "From the Gilly kids xxxx".
