Did you know #BharatRatna #BhimsenJoshi loved automobiles with all his heart?

“Had I not been a classical singer, I would have loved to spend my entire life in a garage fine-tuning a Fiat or a Maruti,” was reportedly his oft-repeated line.
On a journey from Mumbai to Pune once, Bhimsen regaled a taxi driver with his music. Oblivious to his popularity, the driver wondered if Bhimsen would know how to fix an engine in case of an emergency.
To his surprise, Bhimsen helped the taxi driver fix the engine when the car later broke down in the middle of the journey.

The legendary singer was also passionate about long drives.

Brahmanandam is not a person. Its an emotion.

You just need to see him on the screen to start laughing.
No twitter thread can do justice to his versatile talent.

But today, lets go on a ride down nostalgia lane with all of Brahmanandam's characters with caps and hats.
1.Music director JayaSurya from King(2008). The ultimate opener for the thread.
This Delta Force cap has a separate fan base of its own. I am sure people remember Brahmanandam more than Nagarjuna from this movie.

Im Telling That!
2. Jayasurya from King (2008). Once again. Though this is a bandana rather than a cap, we all died laughing as Sri Hari painted Brahmi.
Memorable role.

అది 1952 ఏప్రిల్ 5వ తేదీ. మాస్కో నగరం. రష్యా అధినేత స్టాలిన్ నుండి భారత రాయబారి కార్యాలయానికి ఒక లేఖ అందింది. భారత రాయబారి, డా.రాధాకృష్ణన్ గారిని ఆహ్వానిస్తూ స్టాలిన్ వ్రాసిన లేఖ అది. అందరికీ ఆశ్చర్యం కల్గించింది. #radhakrishnan Image
సాధారణంగా స్టాలిన్ విదేశీ రాయబారులను చూచేవాడు కాదు. అదివరలో శ్రీమతి విజయలక్ష్మి పండిట్ 18 మాసాల పాటు రష్యాలో భారత రాయబారిణిగా పనిచేశారు. కాని ఆమెకు రష్యా అధినేత మార్షల్ స్టాలిన్ తో ఇంటర్వ్యూ లభించలేదు.
రాధాకృష్ణన్ తత్వవేత్త. చాలా సౌమ్యుడు. రాజకీయాలు, దౌత్యవ్యవహారాలతో ఆయనకు అంతగా పరిచయం లేదు. స్టాలిన్ ను చూద్దామా అతి క్రూరుడని, అతని తత్వానికి రాధాకృష్ణన్ కు ఏమాత్రం పడదని అందరూ అన్నారు. రాయబారిగా రష్యా వచ్చిన రాధాకృష్ణన్ రోజుకు పద్దెనిమిది గంటలు పుస్తకాలు చదవటం,

There are two kinds of people in the world -- one, known for their remarkable words and the other known for their work. But former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee had the best of both worlds.

Remembering one of the finest PMs we ever had, the man who laid foundation for

Listed are few quotes by the eminent poet, leader and a statesman.
1)"Andhera Chatega, Suraj Niklega, Kamal Khilega"!
2)“Satta ka khel to chalega, sarkare aayegi..jaayegi…partiya banegi..bigadegi… Magar Ye desh rahna chahiye, is desh ka loktantra Amar
rahna chahiye”.
3) The first poem that he is believed to have written, on the Taj Mahal, revolved on the exploitation of the workers who built the monument. “Yamuna ki roti dhar vakal, kal-kal chal chal, kal-kal chal chal, jab Hindustan roya sakal, tab bana paaya Taj Mahal,”

Among other things, #PranabMukherjee was said to have the memory of an elephant. Remembered the minutest detail from years ago.
Remember an interview of Arun Shourie by @ShekharGupta in #WalkTheTalk when UPA2 was floundering. He told SG that - had it not been for #PranabMukherjee who was the only person who had credibility within the Congress and with the Opposition the government would have collapsed.
Perhaps, the unkindest cut was - when Manmohan Singh went for his coronary bypass surgery #SoniaGandhi refused to name #PranabMukherjee the interim No 2 despite his being the senior most in the cabinet (she formed a joint committee with AK Antony. Such insecurity.

It is shocking that PV Narasimha Rao garu is NOT YET a #BharatRatna awardee even now, but so many other less qualified politicians are! 🙄

@narendramodi @PMOIndia @MVenkaiahNaidu @rashtrapatibhvn
When he died, erstwhile colleagues in Congress, indulging the Gandhi family’s implacable vindictiveness, refused to allow his wake to take place in Delhi. The bier bearing his body was not permitted to enter the party premises.…
"Flown to Hyderabad, the city in southern India he had vacated 30 years before, his body lay in state in an empty hall. India’s most consequential prime minister was humiliated and reduced in death to a “regional” leader by the spiteful Gandhis and their lackeys."

#Nehru died this day 56yrs ago
A week earlier he'd sent #SheikhAbdullah to Karachi to meet/negotiate with the #Pakistani military dictator #AyubKhan
Sheikh rushed back upon Nehru's death
The three men ever shared what was cooking
Such hush-hush freelancing continues over #Kashmir
#Nehru indeed is the original sinner in our headache over #Kashmir
But the mindset to deal with this headache, across govts parties and leaders has remained Nehruvian:
Integration through soft separatism
A secular facade to reward bigotry
Hand over democracy to rank autocrats
#Nehru the interim PM did not defend J&K against the #Pakistani attack till the #Maharaja appointed #Sheikh
He let Sheikh rob the elections to stuff his own men in the Constituent Assembly of J&K
All others' nominations were cancelled to 'elect' unopposed 73 NC members out of 75.

A detailed thread on the life and facts of #BharathRatna Sri #AtalBihariVajpayee Ji: A visionary, statesman, politician, leader of people, and loved by all. In his political career which spanned several decades, he created a legacy which will ensure that he'll never be forgotten.
A respectable figure & one of the greatest politicians of India. Also known as the “#BhishmaPitamah” of Indian politics,#AtalJi's personality was able to win over not only all the countrymen but also his oppositions. He was a gem of a politician who always put his #country first.
He was born on 25 December 1924 in Gwalior.

His father was Pandit Krishan Bihari Vajpayee.

He was a teacher. His mother's name was Krishna.

He studied at Victoria College, Gwalior, which is now Laxmibai College. He joined the RSS as a student & became a national level debater.

Now that we have irrefutable evidence that former PM #RajivGandhi did not allow the Army from stopping the Sikh genocide of 1984, the #BharatRatna conferred on him should be withdrawn. 1/4
Dr #ManmohanSingh’s disclosures vindicate our stand that #SikhGenocide could have been averted had Rajiv Gandhi heeded appeals to call in Army to tackle arsonists led by @INCIndia leaders. Home ministry records show this decision was taken at a meeting presided over by him. 2/4
I appeal to PM @narendramodi Ji to withdraw the highest civilian honour from Rajiv Gandhi, who planned & oversaw the #SikhMassacre and also get cases registered against Rajiv & others who prevented the Army from entering Delhi. They should be awarded exemplary punishment. 3/4

#NanajiDeshmukh, who today was awarded the #BharatRatna, was a pivotal opposition figure in the Emergency years, and in all three episodes I've recently explored – the 'subversive' protests (1975), the 'anti-national' resistance abroad ('76) & the 'unholy alliance' ('77). Thread.
(2) In late '74, JP's 'sampoorna kranti' agitation was gaining momentum in Patna, led mainly by students. On Nov 4, a massive rally was met with a police lathi-charge. According to legend, Deshmukh protected JP from a blow – which nearly broke his arm.…
(3) Emergency was declared in '75. Before #NanajiDeshmukh was arrested, in December, he issued an ‘eight-point programme for Indians abroad’, a manual for what would become the overseas anti-Emergency movement – the original "anti-national" lobby.…
