Here we go,
This is the scene outside DJ Halli police. You can see how is it now, and how weapons were carried with them.
It is evident that Police Station was prime target.
How all this happened?

Muzammil Pasha, SDPI District General Secretary, Glass Jaffer, with their gang of goons had come to DJ Halli Police Station to lodge a complaint Naveen related to FB POST.
Right after that addresses huge mob through Loudspeaker.

Very well planned riot by peacefuls in cool city #Bengaluru.
* Congi MLA's RELATIVE posts a pic on FB abt Mhd.
* M's attack MLA's house and burn it down.
* When fire extinguishers arrive, they burn those vehicles too.
* They enter nearest PS. Stone and burn P vehicles
* Everyone gathered are well equipped with stones, knives, petrol, kerosene etc.
* M's are asking names of people walking on the streets and hitting them.
* Situation is still not under control.

Do you people believe this happened all of sudden without any plan?
Look those people who are shouting ∆llahu ∆kbar.
Is this a sudden reaction? How can so many gather at 11pm, that too in calm city like Bengaluru?

On Sept 1st I complete 32 years in top notch industries starting as Asst Engineer grew into Engineering Executive, Consultant Designer, R&D Head, Chief of Operations and R&D (Dr V Krishna Murthy trustee of RGF), then as Product Manager, System Architect, and now as ED.
Someone (irrespective of sector) if he is too busy for everything, all the time, it means either he doesn't know his job or doesn't know to manage it.
I come across so many who hide behind this "I am too busy" from their reportees, from their peers and superiors. If you are a manager find a balance or bosses will have to find some balanced person. In days of mobile phones, you cannot have pagers.

7 Mega Cities in India – Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai have 42% of COVID cases and 53% of COVID deaths in India.
Death Per Million population (DPM) is 114 ; #health infrastructure in these megacities is over stretched. 1 of N
Week-on-Week testing in mega cities has increased by 16.5%. #COVID19 positivity / million in mega cities has increased from 2841 to 3324. Recovery / million population from 1745 to 2218 validates that most of the COVID cases in mega cities are in “Mild-Very Mild Category” 2 of N
The 30-day moving average growth rate of active cases dropping from 60% to 32% in megacities. The velocity of spread might be tapering down in some megacities. Caution: week-on-week data on cases & deaths can vary; growth should be negative, sooner is better.

Situated in the heart of #Bengaluru
city, Basavanagudi is an unusual temple in a number of respects. It is one of the few temples where the vahana (Nandhi) is given precedence over the master, the name for this residential and commercial area of the city is from this temple.
Many centuries ago this area was known as Sunkenahalli, and was fertile farmland dedicated to the cultivation of groundnuts. One day, a wild bull roamed into the area and started to devour and destroy the groundnut crops, wrecking the livelyhoods of the farmers.
In an attempt to drive the animal away, one of the infuriated farmers struck the bull with a club. Legend has it that the bull immediately sat down, became utterly motionless, and turned to stone.

Every person diagnosed to have #COVID19 should have a kit comprising of pulse oximetre , thermometer, medicines, a list of do’s and don’ts. The state Governments can procure and supply to every person diagnosed at their home ahead of home isolation. @CMofKarnataka @drashwathcn
The state Government has notified list of hospitals for #COVID19karnataka admissions & nodal officers in charge for any complaints. No person can be denied beds. 2 of N #Bengaluru
The BBMP has to display the actual beds in each hospital in real time basis. It is impossible to believe that they couldn’t get an app in time despite #Bengaluru called as Silicon Valley. Only then, private hospitals that are not admitting patients can be held accountable. 3 of N

.@BSYBJP namaskara. I would like to highlight grave concerns through this #thread our #COVIDWarriors in hospital are facing. Doctors in the emergency rooms are not given #PPEs. On asking they are told, they don't really need it. #COVID #PPEshortage 1/n
The doctors in the #COVID screening OPDs are also not given #PPEs. They are the 1st contacts of potential #Corona positives. @BBMPCOMM Anil Kumar avare, is there anything you can do to help the #COVIDWarriors in this hospital? #PPEshortage 2/n
A lab technician who turned out to be positive at this hospital was shifted to the doctor's hostel for 'apparent isolation.' Isn't the hospital management risking the spread of infection to other doctors? #COVID #PPEshortage #Isolation @iamgouthamkumar @BBMP_MAYOR 3/n

1/ Rajesh & Vallari Shah’s home in #Bengaluru is powered by the sun, covers 9 months of water requirements through rainwater harvesting, grows 90% of its food organically and is also car-free!

Here are a few steps the couple follow: 👇
2/ Installing an 18-solar panel system with the capacity of 3KW. Apart from the microwave and the water pump; the lights, fans, fridge, computers, washing machine run on solar.

For most of the year, barring rainy days, the family lives off the electric grid.
3/ Vallari not only nurtures a terrace garden but has also converted an open-space in front of their home into a community organic backyard.

“The space in front of our house was lying vacant. Rather than having garbage thrown there, I thought why not convert it into a garden?"

Travelling through #India you can't miss such boulder heaps...

Think of Hampi's ruins (below) or Sravanabelagola (Karnataka), or Mt Abu (Rajasthan)?

#DidYouKnow, such isolated hill/ridge features that jut out from the surrounding plains are called #inselbergs?

#Geo thread/ Geology: inselberg formation at Hampi, Karnataka, India
Derived from German words meaning 'island mountain', #inselbergs are residual features that form across climatic zones.

Yet are most abundant in tropical regions with granite-gneiss outcrops, like those on the cratons across India, as also in the zones marked BCG, CGC, and SGT. Map in the publication, The Indian Peninsula: Geomorphic Lan
Debates rage on how #inselbergs formed, yet most concede they are the result of weathering (breaking down of rocks at site) and erosion (transport of weathered material).

In #India, insolation (heat from sun's rays), rainwater, and rivers have shaped landscapes for millennia. Hampi's boulder inselbergs with the river Tungabhadra snakin

Important notice. Do NOT make the mistake of buying an Apple product, and if you own one definitely DO NOT take it to iCare for repair.


Please do read this as I'm getting no help from any official channels, and now forced to turn to social media.

Attached later will be some photos of the issue, my bill and so forth.

The initial issue:

On 28th December 2019, I decided to try to dive into the Apple ecosystem, and bought myself the iPhone 11 Pro from
@RelianceDigital , with a 1 year extended warranty.

The initial issue:

On reaching home an issue I noticed was that my phone would not charge beyond 80%. There is a setting to turn off "Optimised Battery Charging" which should allow the battery to charge to 100% everytime when turned off regardless of anything.

As India’s #COVID19 tally inches towards the 3 lakh mark, here is a thread of IMPORTANT CRUCIAL THINGS THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DOING RECENTLY to tackle the crisis:
The government has planned a 100-feet high bronze statue of #Bengaluru founder Kempegowda that will be erected near the city's airport at Devanahalli at a cost of Rs 66 crore.…
Ironically, the BJP is not starved of funds and the party is not shying away from splurging on LED TV sets and virtual rallies even when hunger, death and disease stalk the country.…

1/ #Bengaluru cousins are providing 400 litres of milk to underprivileged children daily amid lockdown
2/ "When we went to distribute the ration kits, we discovered that the young ones had nothing to eat. They really needed milk," says Zeeshan Javid of Bengaluru, who joined hands with his cousins Zufishan Pasha and Shehzar Sheriff to initiate 'Mission Milk'.
3/ Under this, volunteers distribute milk packets to underprivileged kids whose families cannot afford this vital nutrient. What started with just 60 litres of milk, has now evolved into a 400-litre a day operation.

The Karnataka government, facing criticism for its action of stopping migrant workers from leaving for their hometowns, has finally agreed to resume train services.

"Karnataka to resume trains for workers":
The decision was taken after thousands of workers chose to take the extreme step of walking home, in the absence of trains.

@pushkarv caught up with a few workers on the highway on Thursday.

"Allow us to go home":
While the government initially blustered and said that no workers were forced to stay, many termed this a violation of their fundamental rights.

Violation of fundamental rights:

Till date, the WithBengaluru initiative distributed ~6500 food ration kits to vulnerable groups across #Bengaluru. Thoughts about the 2-week journey... Ration packet packing
#1 Identifying need: this happened organically. @vinaysreeni connected to some experienced NGO workers, who were already seeing distress calls from slums and labour colonies they worked with. Soon more people starting sharing requests from across the city...
#2 Platform: Requests pour into a whatsapp channel (with all its limitations). Not ideal, but ubiquitous. Volunteer moderators track requests and responses, summarising status, highlighting unfulfilled requests... and matching with offers from those sending food packets
