#India is another country where #SARS_CoV_2 BA.2 is rapidly replacing #Delta & #Omicron BA.1. The pace of sharing sequences by India is very slow, median days from collection to deposition is 69 days according to GISAID. Genome sequencing among the states is not always fair.🧵 ImageImageImage
In the state of #Telangana #India, #Omicron BA.1 in the most recent dates are exclusively from #Hyderabad. Except for a couple cases, BA.2 positive samples were collected outside of Hyderabad. The last sequence from this state is from Jan 6, 2022. Image

thebastion.co.in/politics-and/t…
@maknoonwani tells us that businesses in Kashmir are not necessarily moving to internet-based tools because the internet is simply not reliable enough.

@RanjuDodum explains the difficulty of shutdowns in #ArunachalPradesh. "Because we're reliant on mobile internet, when we go to remote areas to talk to people or officials for a ground reality, it becomes difficult"

We reject such comments. #ArunachalPradesh is an integral & inalienable part of India. Indian leaders routinely travel to the State as they do to any other state of India: @MEAIndia on Chinese MFA's comments on recent visit of VP Naidu to Arunachal Pradesh
Objecting to the visit of Indian leaders to an Indian state does not stand to reason & understanding of Indian people: @MEAIndia
#China, on Wednesday, had objected to the recent visit of Vice President Venkaiah Naidu to #ArunachalPradesh, saying that it is firmly opposed to the Indian leader's visit to the state as it has never recognised it.

Sapria himalayana - a rare root parasite in Namdapha TR, Arunachal Pradesh. Earlier, it was known only from Namdapha within India, but in recent years,it has been found in a few other sites in Arunachal.
#ArunachalPradesh #rootparasites
Its pollination and seed dispersal systems remains unstudied - the fruiting bodies are believed to be dispersed by rodents - so many mysteries in the rainforests that we still need to find out..
I saw it in several different locations in Namdapha. Finding some patches with these startling bright flowers on the dark forest floor was always exciting.

The images from November 1, 2020 have been analysed by several experts who confirmed that the construction which is approximately 4.5 kms within the Indian territory of the facto border will be a huge concern for India.
The village is located on the banks of the River Rsari Chu which lies in the Upper Subansiri district, an area which has been long disputed between India and China, and has been marked by armed conflict. The village was constructed in the eastern range of the Himalayas.

Why are nationalist anchors avoiding this?

1. China is not in a mood to de-escalate the situation on the LAC
2. 5G construction noticed near Demchok area
3. Fresh construction works were seen along the Pangong Lake

Is diplomacy failing?

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

#WildAboutFacts

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.
