Battle of #Saragarhi and Battle of #BhimaKoregaon both had Indian soldiers fighting for the British. While the Battle of Saragarhi has become a symbol of valour and courage, the Battle of Koregaon has still not got its due in history. Read the thread🧵
There are two battles that are separated in time by almost 80 years and in space by 1,700 km —the Battle of Saragarhi(1897) and the Battle of Koregaon Bhima (1818). Only one of them got a Bollywood film, Kesari, featuring @akshaykumar
In both cases, persons of Indian origin were fighting for the British. The ‘idea of India’ was yet to be formed, so we can’t and should not brand anyone a traitor for being a part of the British army.

On the 205th anniversary of #shauryadiwas, a brief thread on the battle of Bhima Koregaon.

Bhima Koregaon is a village situated at the Bhima river in the Pune district of Maharashtra. This village is called Bhima Koregaon because of this.
Many of you watched the movie 300 about the 300 Spartans warriors going against thousands of Persian armies. But you may never be heard about the greatest battle in Indian history when only 500 of the Mahar soldier fought and won against the force of 28000 Peshwas.
Peshwa rule was famous for the oppression of the Dalits, atrocities and degrading way of treating the Dalits of India. When Peshwa's were ruling the Maharashtra region, they had certain rules instructed to the Dalits of the region.

#BhimaKoregaon - This is a piece of propaganda.

The Marathas under Shivaji and thereafter the Peshwa ruled India for a hundred years from 1674 until they were defeated by the British (which had a mix of India troops including Madras Artillery,
Mahars, Marathas, Rajputs, Muslims and Jews) in the third Maratha War of 1818. It was a British victory, not a reason for celebration by any Indian.

The Mughals of course, were a vassal state to the Marathas during this period.
Dalit is a term coined much after the 7th colonial census of 1931, when the term "scheduled castes and tribes" were used for the first time due to pressure from Christian evangelical organizations who wanted to ring fence these tribes for conversion!

Writer, prof & #BhimaKoregaon accused #AnandTeltumbde spent 948 days in prison before Bombay HC found no prima facie case & granted bail, challenged by NIA in SC, which on Friday will decide if he walks out of jail. @ChitrangadaC reports. 1/11…
When #SupremeCourt considers bail on Friday, it will be one of handful in 4 yrs to evaluate merit of #NIA case under anti-terror law #UAPA against 16 #BhimaKoregaon accused. SC cleared arrest of some in 2018, with current chief justice dissenting. 2/11
“Individuals who assert causes which may be unpopular to the echelons of power are yet entitled to the freedoms which are guaranteed by the Constitution," Justice D Y Chandrachud had said in 2018. "Dissent is a symbol of a vibrant democracy…” 3/11

Member of Rajya Sabha and #NCP chief #SharadPawar appears before the #BhimaKoregaon judicial commission today for examination.

Adv Ashish Satpute appearing for the commission is examining him.

Pawar deposing: In recent times it has been observed that section 124A of IPC is often misused against people. I have explained in my affidavit… it is invoked to suppress their liberty and tend to stifle any voice of dissent raised in a peaceful and democratic way. #SharadPawar
Pawar: I propose to raise this issue at appropriate forum like Parliament being Member of Rajyasabha.
If any political leader address the people and his speech is likely to cause disturbance to the law and order then that leader should be responsible for the consequences.

BREAKING: Bombay High Court dismisses Bhima Koregaon Violence accused Gautam Navlakha’s plea seeking “house arrest” instead of being lodged in prison. NIA had opposed this plea stating that the accused was “indirectly seeking bail under the garb of house arrest”.
On prima facie analysis of the facts stated in the petition as well as in the reply of NIA, we are convinced that the accused (Gautam Navlakha) has been prosecuted for commission of a serious crime: Bombay High Court
Perusal of the record would show that the crime alleged to have been committed by the Gautam Navlakha and others is not against a particular individual but it is against society at large: Bombay High Court #bhimakoregaon

I'm old enough to remember and honest enough to admit my default antagonism towards JNU & its students.

I grew up Marathi brahmin in Pune, that's what I was taught. 🤷🏽‍♂️

That JNU is this evil outpost of traitorous communists & terrorists. That was my default teaching growing up.
Even in my early blogs, you will see how much shade I threw at JNU for random stuff.

I'm not saying I was justified. I'm saying that's all I knew then.

But back then the JNU hate was just like a fringe meme online, not national legal policy!
It's like.. How US conservatives love hating Berkeley & Harvard & Columbia for being liberal bastions.

But US conservatives haven't gone and arrested student leaders there as a way to define US conservatism at least!

Indian conservatives made these unsuspecting kids villains 😞

Today's pre dawn walk 🧵 is about this phenomenon I've experienced in recent years that maybe you've experienced too. I call it Ideological Catfishing! Fell for it a couple of times and I know a few others have too.
Not actual catfishing tho that happens too, without success.
Catfishing is when someone pretends to be romantically interested in you or sexually attracted to you online using a fake persona. It's been happening for ages.
I've gotten those attempts for years. But those are useless against me cos I'm just not catfishable! Happily married!
Since Rupal & I got together, I've really truly genuinely not been interested in another woman (or man) at all! So when I get random flirty messages, genuine or not, I just do well left. Most are obviously catfishing attempts to metoo me or something. I'm not that attractive 🤭.

The hours and hours and hours I've spent telling fellow bommin boys the full story of Savarkar. In his own words! His bigotry and fascism were in his own words as was his hatred for ritualistic Hinduism of the kind BJP pushes today.

And they still won't see it!!
Literally, they minimize the one good thing about the man, his scientific temperament re things like beef and temples and rituals, and embrace his bigotry and shallow exclusivit ideas of nationhood full scale!
It makes an impact on some. Those who genuinely didn't know the full story. And they change their minds.

You can identify the sleeper bhakts by whether they still try to argue that it's okay to deify him and he was a great man and what not. Nothing will change their mind.

Those of you who use "woke" as an insult have great company
As #KetanjiBrownJackson hearings continue, please educate yourself on how using "woke" as an insult is you being complicit in the US right wing racist gaslighting.

I get especially pissed off at fellow Indians who throw it around as an insult, buying into that.

Read a bit!
Using "woke" as an insult is just one step removed from vilifying "Critical Race Theory".

Both are tactics from the Rump Confederacy trying to shut up black America as it talks about how their problems go beyond economic inequality, and are about racial inequality.

ASG: There is an interim application for extension.
Permanent bail.
Modification application to stay in Hyderabad.

ASG: The permanent bail application and application to stay in Hyderabad had been rejected by the earlier Bench.
In the extension application he had asked for further 6 months from the date the bail was granted. But that has expired as those 6 months have lapsed.

Until Indian booksellers keep displaying and selling more Mein Kampf than Annihilation of Caste, my birth country is going to keep flirting with fascism more than social justice.

Read Ambedkar. It's all free online. He still is THE most brilliant Indian scholar of all time.
Growing up in brahminical Pune, I was taught about Savarkar in excessively effusive ways and about Ambedkar in excessively condescending ways.

So we were told how Bhimrao studied hard. Beat odds. Wrote the constitution.

Everything Ambedkar I read was about him not by him.
I read mein Kampf (hated it), Gandhi's autobiography (liked it), Nehru's books (loved them), Savarkar (mixed feelings) in my teens.

I didn't even see an actual physical copy of an Ambedkar book in India until the 2010s!

I only really read Ambedkar in my 30s.
