I did 11 treks in the last 12 weekends that I was in #Bangalore

Sharing each of them below.

It’s just my way of winding down from the week. 😌
Ramadevara betta - gives a wholesome view of Tumkur town!

Slightly long but super easy trek. You definitely can’t miss this hike hill when you’re driving to Chikmagalur or Mangalore
Right behind Nandi Hills and Skandagiri hills, this one is a perfect small hike with just nature surrounding you and no car honks 😌

#Bangalore; The talk of Hindu merchants around the mosque.

Both Hindu and Muslim traders have found their livelihood in shops belonging to the Basavanagudi mosque .

Hindu traders have condemned the politics being done by communal organisations +++

to prevent Muslims from doing business near temples.

Everyone's livelihood. No one should be harassed/oppressed because of their caste and religion," says Mandya based businessman Krishna.

🪡 A cute question on the #HijabRow in #Karnataka is: “Why can’t the CM stop it when it’s ruining the State’s image?”

Answer: “Have you seen @BSBommai’s record?”

He was home minister for 23 months from Aug 2019. It was because he met all the KPIs that he was made @CMofKarnataka
2️⃣ @BSBommai was home minister when school children in #Bidar were charged with sedition, for a line in a play that “insulted” @narendramodi during the anti-CAA protests. Bommai had the temerity to say: “It is a very serious and sensitive case.”

3️⃣ @BSBommai is an “educated” politician, an engineer. In #Bidar, the school children charged with sedition were between 9 and 12 years of age. Najumunissa, 35, a single mother, spent a week in jail because police under Bommai’s watch charged her Class V daughter. @IndianExpress

🪡 Much of the outrage on the #HijabRow asks the naive question: “Why is it happening in #Karnataka?”

Answer: “Why are you surprised?”

The startup state was an early-stage investor in #Hindutva. Its reputation as a #Hindutva laboratory precedes #Gujarat and #UttarPradesh.
2️⃣ #BJP’s political quest for the Babri Masjid only began in the late 1980s. In #Karnataka, the ground to reclaim Baba Budangiri, a Sufi shrine in #Chikamagalur district, had been laid a decade before #Ayodhya became common parlance, in 1978.

3️⃣ In 1990, when L.K. Advani’s ‘Rath Yatra’ passed through #Karnataka, seven people died in Bidar in communal riots. But 600 km away, in and around #Bangalore, at least another 33 people died in clashes in 5 locations. It was not an accident.

Posting again on Twitter. I was physically assaulted by an @Uber driver today on the side of the road in rural Bangalore. No bystander helped. I sustained injuries. He threatened me and tried to take my phone. 1/5
I took an @Uber this afternoon in #Bangalore. The driver argued mid-trip (because I complained the car was dirty) and tried to restrain me inside the car. I ran out of the car forcefully, but he got out and assaulted me on the side of the road. 2/5
He hit me at least 10 times on the head and shoulders, cycling repeatedly. I did not hit back. No bystander helped me. I yelled for help but they all stood silent; he kept hitting me. He gave me death threats and tried to snatch my phone. I suffered injuries on my shoulder. 3/5

Today is Christmas and we relate Christmas with Santa Claus. We recognize Santa Claus as someone with a White moustache & beards and with Red Coloured Clothes.

But, what if I told you that in India, there is a guy that only wears red and white!

Read Thread 🧵 Image
Everything he has is either in the color Red or White or both.
Who is this Guy? And why is he so obsessed with Red & White?
In the busy streets of Bangalore there is a house that stands out from the rest. It has the colors red & white. His owner calls it 'The red & whitehouse' Image
When you step into his house it is like stepping into another world. He basically took his favorite colors and put them on everything he owns.
The walls, bed, plates even his Matchbox or his toothpaste have to be in red & white. If the object has any other color he won't buy it Image

Existential thread re how much do you love your kids & if you really, really want them over for Xmas holidays?

All thanks to @DGCAIndia @MoCA_GoI & @JM_Scindia @PMOIndia allowing v few flights, so fares > ₹1.5 lac, any sector, #London to #India
In @ShashiTharoor's cattle class
Thought I'd begin with our national carrier @airindiain after a great experience last time

Chose #AMD @ahmairport, one of our few international airports with A

Fare is £1983 (is it a promotion with the movie 83?)
Hey, it's #Gujarat, all business folks, ex Modi town. My bad!
Then went for the pukka #British @British_Airways

Picked #Hyderabad simply because it isn't #Bangalore, trying smaller airports, maybe better given the Covid restrictions

The fare is a whopping £2231. Ok, back to the drawing board !

OnePlus user awareness post!
To all OnePlus users out there,there is a serious firmware issue happening with OnePlus devices, which forces your device into Qualcomm Crash Dump Mode
Please backup all the precious data if you don't want to lose it.
Once you get into into that state, 70% of the time your phone wouldn't reboot back to normal. Very few were able to revive the device using MSM tool, but you would lose all data.
The only solution from OnePlus service centre is to replace the motherboard which costs around 20k in the case of OnePlus6(more than the market value of the device). Most of the issues happened after updating to the latest firmware.

So I recently moved from #Delhi to #Bangalore and the easiest and fastest way I could move my work desk setup (monitors, PC, gaming chair) and my car was to stuff all that into the 🚗 and drive it all the way down.

So here's a smol thread 🧵 on a DEL-BLR road trip. Image
Day 1 was planned to be #Delhi to #Gwalior. But that would have left a very long 2nd day, so we planned to go a little further to Jhansi.

A complete chance browsing through @bookingcom led us to discover this beautiful Bundelkhand Riverside Resort at Orchcha to stay. Image
Day 1 was 425 km. Total drive time was 10hrs+, because we stopped at Agra to visit @TajMahal too.

Booked Hotel Atulyaa Taaj (apart from Oberoi Amarvilas, this is the nearest hotel to Taj) simply as an expensive parking spot 😅 as the car was loaded with stuff. Image

You NEED the BU (Bangalore Urban) number and SRF (Specimen Referral Form) id without fail.
