The death toll in the #Odisha #trainaccident involving two express trains - #Bengaluru-#Howrah Express and #Shalimar-#Chennai #Coromandel Express -- and a goods train in #Balasore has risen to 238 and around 900 were injured.
#IndianAirForce (IAF) deployed Mi-17 helicopters for the evacuation of deceased and injured in the Odisha triple train accident, informed Eastern Command.

IAF is coordinating the rescue efforts with the civil administration and #IndianRailways.
While #Muslims are busy #mocking the death of #Hindus in the #TrainAccident. Here's #Odiya Hindus of #Odisha queuing at midnight to #donate #blood for the surviving #victims of the train accident. Irrespective of victim's #religion. That's the difference..

What really happened in Jayanagar and how the BJP won by 16 votes - a thread.

Keen to know what transpired in Jayanagar late last night? I was!
Read on to see what was uncovered after multiple chats with people on the ground.

#jayanagar #KarnatakaElection2023
The contest was between BJP candidate @CKRBJP Ramamurthy (ex-corporator) and INC candidate @Sowmyareddyr (incumbent MLA and daughter of congress leader Ramlinga Reddy).

As the counting of votes progressed, it was apparent that the margin of victory in #Jayanagar would be small.
Sowmya Reddy’s lead of a mere 160 votes was prematurely celebrated as a victory by Congress party. BUT there was no certificate of victory issues by the EC authorities.

What happened internally was very different - a rule in the ECI handbook for counting came into force.

A class 12 passout, former security officer and self taught cybergeek from Hyderabad, Shrinivas Rao Dadi, masterminded a nationwide cyberfraud with a turnover of Rs 3 crore a day. The money was being converted into #cryptocurrency and sent to #China. So, how did he do it? Image
There was a hierarchy to how the scamsters operated. Some of them called up citizens, posing as policemen and flashing fake ID cards, over WhatsApp and Skype. Women were targetted the most. In Delhi, one of the scamsters made a video call to a woman, dressed in a khaki uniform.
The victims were told that a parcel he/she had sent by courier was found containing drugs. The terrified victims were deceived into downloading apps, such as Anydesk, that provided the scamster with remote access to his phone screen.

आज मला Static Electric Shock चा आलेला अनुभव.
गेल्या काही दिवसापासून बेंगलोर आणि म्हैसूर या शहरामध्ये Static Electric Shock चे प्रमाण वाढले आहे. आजच मी एका मित्राला स्पर्श केल्यावर मला पण त्याचा झटका बसला. पण हे असे का होते त्यामगील शास्त्रीय कारण जाणून घेऊया. 👇
हा शॉक असा असतो की जेव्हा पण एखादा माणूस दुसऱ्या वस्तूला खासकरून मेटल बॉडी ला स्पर्श करतो किंवा दुसऱ्या माणसाला स्पर्श करतो तेव्हा त्या माणसाला करंट लागल्यासारखा वाटतो.हे होण्यामागे कारण असे की प्रत्येक माणसाची बॉडी ही Atom (अणू) पासुन बनलेली असते.👇
त्यामध्ये इलेक्ट्रॉन (-) प्रोटॉन (+) आणि न्युट्रोन (neutral)असते.यात सर्व अणुंचे प्रमाण हे balance राखण्यासाठी समान असते. पण जेव्हा पण शरीराच्या बाहेरील तापमान, हवेचा दाब किंवा वेगवेगळे रेडिएशन मुळे याचे प्रमाण अचानक कमी जास्त होते.👇

I was waiting in my car outside Nexus mall Koramangala for a friend. Suddenly a police officer from the Adugodi police station showed up asked me to step out of the car and said he was going to check me and the vehicle.
@BlrCityPolice @DgpKarnataka @CPBlr #Bangalore #Police 1/n
I asked if there was a reason for it, he said he was doing a routine check. I was okay with it.  He was checking my car it was all good until he found a Pepper spray. He then stated it is illegal to carry it and asked me why I have it @BlrCityPolice @DgpKarnataka @CPBlr
I stated it was for self defense just in case something happens while I am driving alone. He again stated it is illegal and told me that I should have kept it at home.  @DgpKarnataka @BlrCityPolice @CPBlr #bangalore #bangalorepolice #Police

What is the story behind the famous #Bangalore weather?

It goes back 3400 million years...🧵
Around 3,400 million years ago, the peninsular ‘gneiss’ came out and was cooled from volcanic activity.

This is what formed the city’s bedrock today. But the rock itself weathered and stored water in shallow aquifers.
Bengaluru as we know it today, settled at the fag end of the Deccan plateau, 900 metres above sea level.

This gave it the #pleasant climate that Bengaluru is famous for.

Let’s now skip to 88 million years ago. >>

The drivers pointed out to a cab towards the end. I was miffed.

One of the persons came up to me and asked, “Ma’am- single lady passenger? That pink taxi is for you.”

I was delighted to find a lady driver. As a woman traveller, I loved the assurance of my safety.
I smiled, knowing I could catch up on some sleep peacefully, as she would take care of me.
Well, the story doesn’t end here.

Around Brigade road, she slowed down for Friday night revellers. I suddenly remembered my duty-free shopping bag that l had left hanging on the trolley.

"I had just returned from school and saw a few visitors at home. My mother asked me to serve them tea. I realised they had come to ask my hand in marriage only after they left.
Within a week, I was engaged, and just three days later, I was married to a man I met on my wedding day for the first time. The night after the wedding, he tried to pin me down forcefully. One year later, I got to know he was autistic.
I filed for divorce. My family declared me a burden.
The next subsequent alliance was precisely the kind of guy I wanted. He assured me that he was ready to accept me for who I was. This could be a new chapter in my life.
