Let's discuss point by point. How many of u learned of the detailed account of how much was looted during #BritishRaj ? Look how #Hindus were made to suffer. From a surplus country with all the riches in the world to the daily average per capita income of 5pices/2 1/2 cents...1/n Image

Our #Hindu rulers used to provide almost free education to all the people in their Kingdoms. Look at how much #Britishers spent on Indians education. They never cared about our sanitation, but all they cared was our army, spent whooping 330 millions Image

Rani Lakshmibai.

She was a symbol of resistance to the #BritishRaj. She stunned the #British by showing extraordinary fighting spirit & valour when british annexed territories of Jhansi. She inspired many generations of #freedom fighters & became immortal in history.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)

The Modi Govt seems to have lost its #Plot.

Their #Vision & #Direction, both,have gone #astray.

They look hell-bound to push #India & its #Economy in the #Darkness.

#People of India continue to #suffer because of #Brainless #Aimless #DecisionMaking by the #Govt.

#GodSaveIndia
They do not know what they r doing, but they think whatever they r doing is Correct.

They r hallucinated.

They r suffering from a #SelfRighteous #Syndrome.

That's sounds too #Dangerous for the #Country & its #People !

The Country cannot be left on the Whims of a #Psychopath !
@BJP4India & @INCIndia have become only a #Liability on the #Nation.

#Leaders like @RahulGandhi @narendramodi & @AmitShah r #Misleading the #Nation & taking #India & its #people in the #Wrong #Direction.

India & its People r much more than #BJP #Congress & some #Media Groups.
