Long Thread:

China's “Pearl of Strings" Vs Bharat's “Diamond Necklace"!

Modern day wars are not to conquer Land Parcels, but to control Trade & Economies!

#China was lucky to be given a Free Hand by #UPA govt of CONgress which literally slept over Strategic Issues.

#China increased it's presence in Indian Ocean rampantly till 2014 through its Debt Trap Diplomacy to suit it's #StringsOfPearls strategy to contain Bharat's hold in Indian Ocean.

It created a ring around Bharat through strategically placed Nations.

How was it being done?

Via debt-trap policy! China lured strategically located nations around #Bharat to borrow Infra Loans. Once indebted, #China pressurized them to support its Geostrategic interests. This way, China got Control over Chittagong
(Bangladesh),Karachi &Gwadar Port(Pakistan) and...

THREAD (un altro🙏ma necessario)

Provo a spiegare,molti #milanisti scrivono “quello era un grande #Milan” parlando del passato,riferendosi ad oggi:
Vi spiego però la genesi e come arrivammo poi a dire “grande Milan”.
Perché quel Milan,non nasce "grande".
Le paure,la percezione di non essere grandissimi c erano anche allora,era tutto nuovo con #Sacchi.
Anche a livello emozionale.
”eh ma…tutti campioni”si dice oggi.
Lo spiego,il punto di partenza:
Giovanni #Galli in porta arrivava da #Firenze e un pessimo #Mexico86.
La difesa era #Tassotti #Baresi F.#Galli #Maldini.
Grandissimi ma c erano anche anni prima,non avevano mai vinto nulla,risultato massimo un quinto posto e prendevano oltre 20 gol a campionato.
Arrivò #Colombo da #Udine,un gregario.
#Ancelotti rotto con il 20% di invalidità!

Montage of satellite images taken by DigitalGlobe shows Kalutara, south-western coast of #SriLanka, 40km south of #Colombo. Lower image taken at 10:20 IST on 26 Dec 2004, as #Tsunami2004 #IndianOceanTsunami hit without any local warning, killing ~35,000…
One of the most memorable cartoons on #Tsunami2004, by Jim Morin, cartoonist of @MiamiHerald, summed up that day's monumental failure of publicly communicating an early warning about on-coming killer waves. I reflected on it for @SciDevNet one year later:…
International warnings about #Tsunami2004 were received by #lka govt agencies but *not relayed locally* to enable coastal evacuation to save lives. Science & Tech Min Dr Tissa Vitharana later infamously defended govt failure saying "it was a holiday".…

For every #SriLankan who saw protestors at #GGG being assaulted by the #military & said "if they are doing this in #Colombo, can you imagine what happened to #Tamils in the #North & #East?" ENOUGH! There is no need to imagine, we know! 1/8
There are enough videos, films, still photographs, eye witness testimony, survivor testimony #UN reports, & other expert reports to clearly lay out what happened in #Mullivaikkal & before, was #CrimesAgainstHumanity, #WarCrimes & #Genocide. You chose not to believe! 2/8
There are 100's of people who died getting that information of #WarCrimes out of the #WarZone. Too many #journalists & #activists were killed, attacked, jailed, #tortured & exiled trying to disseminate that information, because you chose not to believe. 3/8

At present, the #SriLankan economy is extremely precarious. Although the former government’s budget projected revenue of SLR 2.3 trillion, SLR 1.6 trillion is the realistic projection of this year’s revenue: PM of Sri Lanka #RanilWickremesinghe, in #Colombo

#Economy #SriLanka Image
The estimated govt expenditure for this year is SLR 3.3 trillion. However, due to increase in interest rates & addl expenditure of ex-govt, total govt expenditure is SLR 4 trillion. Budget deficit for the yr is SLR 2.4 trillion. This amount equals 13% of the #GDP: PM of Sri Lanka

#Kolkata's trams are famous. The electric #trams were first introduced in 1902 and at their peak covered 40 lines carried commuters over a 70 km network. Today only 28 km of the network remains. Once upon a time other cities in India also had electric/mechanical trams.
#Karachi Tramway first opened for traffic in 1885 as a steam tramway. By 1909 the East India Tramwag Co, had an all petrol/diesel fleet of trams. In 1949 the whole tramway system was sold to the Mohamedali Tramways Company (MTC). All 4 lines closed in 1975.
#Bombay Tramway Company Limited was established in 1873. Electrified service began in 1907 and double-deck tram service in 1920. At its peak in 1935, 433 trams ran on 47 km of track. The service closed in 1964.

#Colombo #golf club and #swimming club.
It is a cartel of HNWIs and senior Brokers and few fund managers who get together, use their connections and contacts and invest in selected counters at low levels. @CSE_Media @SEC_SriLanka @BullsAndBearsSL @nimalhperera @BuhardeenImtiaz
These counters are either illiquid or has already performed well and solid invest opportunities for anyone. Then the fabricated news is spread through brokers, SM and other means so the retail interest is created.
@CSE_Media @SEC_SriLanka @BullsAndBearsSL
Then, with the retailers following the news get in those share. Price of those shares go up rapidly. To boost confidence few crossings would be done at higher levels by the people who invested at initial levels to their "proxy" accounts.@CSE_Media @SEC_SriLanka @BullsAndBearsSL

This a thread from friend in #Colombo #SriLanka who tried to get 2nd #AstraZeneca/covisheild dose yesterday. #LKA #VaccinationDrive is for the rich & powerful first!

"The 14th started on a innocuous note. We're all in travel restriction, can't step out of our house-well & good
"Then around 1030am I hear on the grapevine that vaccinations are taking place at the town hall... okay... I've had the first round and I'm theoretically due for the second round within the next four weeks so I braved arrest and went there with my vaccination card in hand..
Joined the queue and waited. Whilst waiting, I realised that this queue was not going anywhere. While we were standing there, a whole lot of people were being taken in completely ignoring the queue. A gentleman behind me in the queue went up to the security....

Thousands of people in Sri Lanka have drunk an alleged miracle drug that is said to protect against corona. But meanwhile a minister who had taken the drink like other high-ranking politicians had to go to hospital.
Piyal Nishantha de Silva, who is responsible for women, child development and education on the island nation, told reporters and on Facebook that he had Corona.
The drink was brewed by an influential so-called holy man who claimed that he had received the recipe from the Hindu goddess of destruction, Kali.

#SriLanka #Colombo #Coronavirus #Curfew

A number of passenger trains have been terminated and the curfew extended by the Sri Lankan authorities as cases linked to a new cluster at a garment factory continue to surge.
After the number of passengers declined because of the curfew imposed in many parts of the country, the Railway Department canceled at least 16 trains, mostly running through busy office hours.
In the heavily populated Western province, which includes the capital of Colombo, more than a dozen villages are isolated. On Saturday, after a flood of 609 cases linked to the country's main fish market, the authorities closed at least two fishing harbors and several stalls.

Mask refusers in the South Asian island state of Sri Lanka face imprisonment in the future.
The authorities announced on Friday that anyone who does not adhere to distance rules in public in the fight against the corona virus could also be punished with up to six months in prison and the equivalent of a fine of 46 euros.
"The laws are a protection for health workers and for the police in the implementation of guidelines to contain the virus," said Deputy Police Chief Ajith Rohana. It is now also mandatory to provide hand disinfectants in shops and offices and to keep a customer register.

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)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

Discussions are underway to release convicted murderer Duminda Silva as a part of general pardon disguised to release some prisoners due to Corona Virus outbreak. Namal Rajapaksa is taking the lead in the project under blessings of MR. @Hirunika_Premac #lka #lk
Duminda Silvas brother Rayynor Silva @RayynorSilva has met Namal multiple times to make arrangements to transfer money to bank accounts of Namal in Dubai and Seychelles. Meetings have happened secretly in Gower Street and Shangri-La.
Namals cousin Malaka Chandradasa @niner1alpha has arranged secret rooms in Shangri La hotel. Malaka is head of security for Gotabaya @GotabayaR but is now sidelined due to his alliances with Namal for underhand dealings to extort money from business owners in #Colombo
