The 10th Indian edition of the global Great Backyard Bird Count starts on Friday! The #GBBC is a 4-day event (18-21 Feb) to celebrate our birds by documenting them across the country. Just look for birds as often as you can, and upload your lists to eBird.

Last year (2021), 2954 birders in India uploaded 31,355 lists during the GBBC, clocking nearly 17,000 hours of birding & recording 965 species – 72 % of the total number of species known to occur in the country!

Can we cross 1,000 species this year?

🪡 The day after the #UnionBudget is the closest India’s media comes to peddling pornography. There’s so much public display of affection—ranging from flirting to petting, from kissing to kissing the ass—that the moral police could easily charge it with indecency. (1/5)
2️⃣ There are the usual diabetes-inducing 10/10 pronouncements of the “captains of industry”, drafted by hacks-turned-PR shills, competing word for word with newspaper headlines, which compete with #PIB releases. Like, “#Nirmala presents ‘Amrit Kaal’ budget”.
3️⃣ Although India has been warned of the “2A variant” by former chief economic advisor Arvind Subramaniam, only @gautam_adani has dropped his pearls of wisdom on @nsitharaman’s offering. Mukesh Ambani has let employees of his execrable TV channels to bare their patriotic fangs.

#Thread: Since many people in #Odisha & outside have the impression that the state govt has done incredibly well at #covidmanagement, here's something I feel people need to know too before painting a rosy picture on SM. I live in a place that is 34 km away from #Nabarangpur DH
Anxious about my father's health, I tried figuring the nearest RT-PCR test centre, and I was told there's only one centre, i.e., #Nabarangpur DHH and it takes about 5-6 days to get the test results. Why? Because they send the sample to SLN Hospital at #Koraput
Now here's what you need to know- #Odisha govt after one year of slumber, sanctioned ₹20 cr yesterday for #Covid testing labs in 16 districts and #Nabarangpur is one among them. After 1 year of a goddamn #pandemic, my district will finally have a #RTPCRTest lab.

What is a person's identity? How do we define an individual?

When a child speaks its first word known as the mother language, it gives itself an identity.
It is also said that the mother language is the in-born language, which a baby has already familiarized even in the gestation of the mother before it was born.
First announced by @UNESCO on 17 November 1999, #InternationalMotherLanguageDay🌎 is celebrated annually on 21 February to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to promote multilingualism.

If we are to look for the origins of the #Yoginis, it appears that we must turn to the simple village cult & to the #GramaDevatas/ #GramaDevatis, the local village #gods & #goddesses. In villages of #India they are the favoured #deities

On #BbsrFoundationDay , let's have a thread on its localities n its nomenclature ! When Bbsr was created as a planned city, the central part was divided into 9 Units & various Nagars/Vihars. Even Bbsr is said to be derived from Tribhubaneswar #bhubaneswar #BbsrNameGame
IRC Village named after Indian Road Congress (IRC) which was held in early 1980s at a barren land later came to be known as IRC Village which is not a village, rather a posh locality 😆
