@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM It’s been nearly a fortnight when we heard the loud crash and woke with a jolt thinking we had been hit by an earthquake. We ran out of our building to see the whole neighbourhood on the street. Two buildings had fallen - one still under construction, trapping bodies.
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM We had to evacuate that day taking our valuables and whatever we’d need for the next few days. We asked frantically what to do, where to go, how long before we could return - we got vague answers that ranged from 2-3 days to a month. It’s been 13 days and we have no home.
@RewabeBlr @CMofKarnataka @DrParameshwara @thekjgeorge @Officeofkjg @BBMP_MAYOR @BBMPCOMM On Saturday we were told that one of the buildings, suposedly the one that collapsed first called Sai Adi Ambal, had fallen face front onto the boundary wall of the homes opposite it. This occurred during the demolition process. We were told to take our things, everything and go.

There seems to be a bit of #Bangalore love on Twitter. So here is a a list of books about/on Bangalore that I've either read or enjoyed (in no particular order). Please do share your favourite book(s) other Indian cities. #booksoncities 1/n
Do you have patience? The Gazetteer from the Govt. of Karnataka (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) is a treasure trove. Do read their home page for more information. There is one from 1990 (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) and another from 2016 (karnataka.gov.in/Gazetteer/Page…) 2/n
Sharma, Yashaswini. Bangalore: the early city, AD 1537-1799. Diss. Cardiff University, 2012. I have read the thesis from orca.cf.ac.uk/id/eprint/48787. In case you'd like to know how the ಪೇಟೆ's are named and the list of them, skip ahead to page 73. 3/n

Spent some time with a startup struggling with #hiring quality talent in #Bangalore. The story is quite common so thought of putting them in a thread.
The startup shared these (usual) problems: 1. Not finding skilled talent 2. Salary range mis-match 3. Drop offs in hiring process 4. Only 1/5 offers were converting to a joining
#1 skill mismatch: The HR was instructed to look for 2+ "solid" experience on #rubyonrails and would reject anyone else without looking at their growth curve. Moreover, she was non-technical but was also doing the initial technical screening (on ROR).

At least 1,337 journalists have been killed while covering the news since 1992. Their names form The #LastColumn logo. Each time a journalist is killed, their name will be added to the logo. #pressfreedom
In this thread, we share the final work of 24 journalists who were killed in line of duty since 1992. #LastColumn @CPJLastColumn thelastcolumn.com

“All the policies are only for the walls. You have factories full of 2000 women and none of them know who they can approach. There’s no support for migrants who come to work here or sympathy from the police.” #MeToo #GarmentWorkersSpeak #bangalore
“When our colleague who was sexually violated by a supervisor for 3 years went to file a complaint, the response was ‘if it happened for so long, you must like him’”. #bangalore #metoo
“As women conductors on BMTC buses, we’re constantly being touched, groped and pushed up against. Men board these buses drunk and misbehave with us. We work so hard and can’t even have clean toilets to ourselves- there’s no safety in this job.” #bangalore #metoo

Drove from #Bangalore to #Hospet, a distance of 350 km, on March 25th to see the #Hampi ruins. Instead of going back via Chitradurga, turned onto NH 150A from NH 48 at Hiriyur. The Hiriyur - Hospet stretch has much less traffic compared to Chitradurga-Hospet. #IndiaRoadTrip
Soon after crossing Hiriyur en route to #Hospet (near #Hampi), the landscape transformed itself dramatically. There were beautiful craggy hills and fields with the characteristic red soil of the region, with moderate to scanty vegetation. #IndiaRoadTrip
The #Hiriyur to #Hospet route goes close to #Bellary (now #Ballary), w/ its many mines of the best quality iron. Saw trucks transporting iron ore plying on this route. Incidentally, Bellary has often been in the news for rampant illegal mining & export of iron ore. #IndiaRoadTrip
