Karnataka IPS officer D Roopa gave her response to the on-going trolling over her comments on firecrackers and true "Indology."

The tussle between the IPD officer and account named True Indology began with  Roopa questioning the need to burst firecrackers during Deepavali celebrations and its response. 

True Indology account was suspended, angering the right-wing section of Twitter. Several accounts came in support including actress Kangana Ranaut who is also a right-wing-leaning person. 

D Roopa, the Home Secretary to the Government of Karnataka, said that she chose not to say anything because for her there is life beyond Twitter and that people have 'real responsibilities'.
