زیر آب مسجد کی دریافت____ریاست بہار (بھارت)
Mosque Re-emerges from Underwater (#Bihar)
تقریباً120 سالہ قدیم
جیسے مصر کی بندرگاہ ہراکلین سے زیر آب شہر اور چین میں زیر آب مجسمہ بدھااور شہر دریافت ھوا ھے بالکل اسی طرح چند دن قبل ریاست بہار
کے ضلع نوادہ کے چرائیلا (Chiraila) گاؤں میں زیر آب مسجد پھولواریہ ڈیم کے جنوبی سرے میں پانی کے خشک ھونےکے بعد ابھری ھے۔
اس زیر آب مسجد کاپس منظریہ ھے کہ یہ 1979 میں پھلواریہ ڈیم کی تعمیرپر کام شروع ھونے سے پہلے موجود تھی جہاں بڑی آبادی تھی جنہیں ڈیم کی تعمیرکیلیے بےدخل کیاگیاتھا۔
پہلے جب پانی کی سطح کم ھوتی تو مسجد کے گنبد کا صرف ایک حصہ نظر آتا تھا جسے لوگ نہیں سمجھ پاتے تھے کہ یہ کیا ھے؟
پرانے زمانے کے لوگ اس مسجد کا نام"نوری مسجد" سے یاد کرتے ہیں جو کہ 1985 میں پھلواریہ ڈیم کی تعمیر کےبعد زیر آب آگئی تھی۔
مسجدکی زمین سے بالائی گنبدتک اونچائی تقریباً 30

चंद नेंताओं ने अपने स्वार्थ के लिए पूरे बिहार की बलि चढ़ा दी।
जिसमें सबसे आगे स्वर्णिम अक्षरों में @laluprasadrjd @NitishKumar @SushilModi जी का नाम लिखा जाएगा।
शिक्षा, ज्ञान और अपने श्रम के जरिये पूरे जगत में अपनी पहचान बनाने वाले बिहार को आज दंगाई कहा जा रहा है।
जो बिहार को बदल सकते थे @rsprasad वो भी चाटुकारिता में व्यस्त रहे।
रही सही कसर युवा पीढ़ी के नेता @TejYadav14 @pappuyadavjapl
जी ने आग में घी डालने का काम किया है।
दुर्भाग्य है बिहार का कि इसने हर पार्टी, हर नेता पर विश्वास किया, पर सभी ने पीठ में छुरे से प्रहार किया।
सभी ने अपनी 3 पीढ़ियों के लिए माल भर लिये।
हर वर्ष IAS-IPS की फौज तैयार करने वाले बिहार में आज न कोई उत्कृष्ट शैक्षणिक संस्थान है, और न ही कोई मेडिकल सुविधा, न ही बेहतरीन ट्रांसपोर्ट सुविधा और रोजगार की क्या ही कहें।
जैसे के माथे पर जन्म के साथ ही पलायन नामक दाग लिख दिया गया हो।

Some facts on #Agnipath. A regular (permanent) lowest order soldier recruit in #IndianArmedForces earn a total of appoximately Rs 14 lakh in 4 years. #Agniveer will earn Rs 15.6 lakh plus Rs 11.5 lakh parting money, total Rs 27.1 lakh 1/4
#Agnipath is short service scheme for soldiers. For officers similar 5-year scheme exists since 1960's. Roughly 25% of #Indianarmedforces officers are on short service. This ceiling may be raised too. 2/4
Why #Bihar is most critical of #Agnipath? Bihar dies for govt service. This is linked to dowry (price) in marriage market. To capitalise social psyche, there is a parallel universe of 'coaching centres' who are blamed for running employment rackets 3/4

On 7th July 1855, a group of Santhal tribals assembled in a field in #Jharkhand and declared themselves free. This act of defiance triggered an armed rebellion. The tremors it created were felt a century later, in a movement that drew the attention of the world. 1/9 Image
The Santhal Revolt of 1855 pitted the Santhal tribes in the forests of #WestBengal, #Bihar, Jharkhand and #Odisha against local zamindars, who were supported by the #British. For the Santhals, it was a fight to retain the right to their lands. 2/9 Image
These rights had been taken away by the East India Company, which in the 18th century began clearing the forests in which the Santhals lived, to grow cash crops like indigo and poppy. Things grew worse when the Zamindari System was introduced in 1793. 3/9 Image

The formal separation of Bihar from Bengal in April 1912 was a momentous event in the lives of the people of the state. The process had started on December 12, 1911 when King George V, at the Delhi Durbar, revealed the "top secret" decision regarding the separation of Bihar.
Before 1912, #Bihar, as a part of Greater Bengal, was ruled by a Lt Gov and his secretariat at Calcutta, which was also the seat of the provincial govt of Greater Bengal. For practical purposes, Bihar was ruled and managed by 3 divisional commissioners & district collectors. 2/n
Prior to 1912, Bihar had no state capital of its own. The administrative headquarters used to be at Bankipore, a suburb of Patna, which was inhabited by the British and Europeans starting the mid-18th century.

1. What comes to your mind when you hear 'Chambal'?

Daku/dacoits - right?

Up to the early 2000s, organized crime controlled Chambal across MP, Rajasthan, Haryana, and UP.

Today we talk not of extinct dacoits, but endangered wildlife.

This is how GoI creates false narratives! There is no sign of a clear "surge" of #COVID19 cases in #Kerala, yet. Whereas, in comparison, a surge is more visible in #UttarPradesh & #Bihar whose names are conspicuously absent from the list of "emerging states of concern".

In fact, both #UttarPradesh & #Bihar are among the top 5 states with the highest growth of active cases at the moment.

Who is JAGAT SETH??

India's richest person from whom the #British & #Mughals used to borrow money. Before British rule, our country used to be 'Sone ki Chidiya' due to our rich kings & princely states whose treasuries were full. There was no poverty.
There were such people in India in the 17th-18th century to whom the Mughals & British Empire kept bowing their heads for money. One such household was the 'Jagat Seth' Gharana of Murshidabad, #Bengal. They were originally from #Rajasthan
Jagat Seth was a title given to Fatehchand ji in 1723 AD by Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah. Since then this entire gharana became famous as 'Jagat Seth'. It was considered to be the richest banker's house of those times.
