- The Story Of Air India -#Ganga .. which played a major role in #1971IndoPakWar 😀
How Pakistanis were Fooled… 😀👇🏼#Thread
1. In January 1971 already East Pakistan ( now Bangladesh) was Boiling and India was determined to Fracture Pakistan .
2. Hashim Qureshi along with his cousin Ashraf Qureshi hijacked this Indian Airlines plane on 30 January 1971 (Ganga) en route from Srinagar to Jammu and brought the plane to Lahore, Pakistan 🙄
3. Now comes the Twist in the story ...
#Ganga’ was one of the oldest aircraft in the Indian Airlines fleet and was already withdrawn from service but was re-inducted just few days before ‘the Hijacking’ 😉!!

Fourth post in the #WildlifeWeek series. Today’s post is more of a #reviving one than #reintroduction.

Day 4 – Return of the #bandits to #Chambal !

The Red Crowned Roofed #turtle is a #species of #freshwater turtle endemic to South #Asia.
Historically the species was widespread in the #Ganga River, both in #India and #Bangladesh. Extirpated from most of its former range but currently it has dwindled a last surviving population of less than 500 adult individuals in the #wild.
Their population reduced drastically due to depredation of eggs and hatchlings by Golden #jackals, #habitat degradation due to #pollution and illegal sand mining in the floodplains. They are also extensively #poached for their meat and shell.

#GANGOTPATTI (Ganga Sapthami) - What does it indicate?

7th Lunar day (#Sapthami) in the bright fortnight of the lunar month #Vaisakha Maasam is reckoned as #Gangotpatti the day Holy #Ganga (Ganges) emerged out from the ear of Sage #Jahnu. +
After #Vishnu #Paadodbhavi the divine Ganga descended on to the earth making Lord #Shiva's matted locks as its platform,

Ganga followed #Bhagiratha to the Nether worlds to purify the souls of #Sagara Puthras lying in the form of an ash in the ashrama of #Kapila Maha Muni. +
On the way the waters of Ganga submerged the Ashrama of Sage #Jahnu who got annoyed and drank the entire Ganga waters.

Afterwards the Sage got pleased with the prayers of Bhagiratha and others and released Ganga from his ear for welfare of the mankind. +

Continuing from where I left last year. Tweet from Jan 20 2022, almost a year after Russian troops began moving. CYBER WAR came 1st: 👇
Russian LEER 3 comes next! #ElectronicWarfare Ukro soldiers getting msgs on their mobs to move back from their positions. This is a warning sent to them.
And Russians used this tactic 👇 exactly a week ago when they said soldiers are returning home after exercise. Well, it was only partially true.

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.

#chambal #thugs #endangeredwildlife
2. Apart from the बीहड़ badlands, it has the National Chambal Sanctuary.

A 5,400 km2 protected area for the critically endangered gharial, the red-crowned roof turtle and the Ganges river dolphin.

3. The sanctuary runs across UP, MP and Rajasthan.

In 1978, Madhya Pradesh declared it an eco-reserve. Today, it is co-administered by the three states.

Story of a navigational canal that was built with ~12 crore rupees tax payer money in #Ganga riverbed in #Varanasi Uttar Pradesh.

h/t @Indian_Rivers

Before the construction of the canal, this was the river Ganga
In March 2021, the construction started in the river bed where we can see the machines in action. The canal was supposed to be built parallel to the main river but within the bed.

By May, the construction had progressed and we can see the canal taking a shape (highlighted in white)

It is said in the Skandapuranam that Dhyana(meditation) gives Moksha in Satyayuga; in Tretayuga Dhyana & Tapas (penance) gives Moksha; in Dvaparayuga, Dhyana, Tapas and Yajnas are the causes of Moksha but in Kaliyuga it is bathing in Ganga alone that results in Moksha. #Ganga
It is said in the Puranas that even worms, insects & locusts that die on the banks of Ganga, the trees that fall into Ganga from the river bank, they all attain Moksha.
Shiva also says that naastikas with eyes spoiled by paapa see Ganga like an ordinary river filled with ordinary water.

In the 19th century, a Bengali Shudra widow had outwitted The British East India Company & protected the #Ganga as a #commons for fishing rights, using Anglo-Saxon #capitalism’s potent weapon — private property. My story on Rani Rashmoni.…
I have grown up with this understanding that Bengali's are bad at business, we are somehow too intellectual & idealistic to survive the rough & tumble world of commerce. Poppycock! If you study 19th century Bengali capitalists, they amassed huge wealth & power through trade.
Rani Rashmoni thrived in an upper caste male dominated world of commerce with a strong moral compass. Her philanthropy was legendary. She was deeply empathetic of the plight of the underprivileged - the only landlord of her time who actively divested from indigo cultivation.

River Ganga Turns Green in #Varanasi; Experts Suggest Algae Could be the Reason…

(📸: IANS)
It has been a few days since the colour of the #GangaRiver in #Varanasi turned green. The change in the colour of the water has become a major cause of concern for the local people—more so, because, in the same period last year, the Ganga water had become sparkling clean.
According to Dr B.D. Tripathi, the chairman of Malviya Ganga Research Centre at Banaras Hindu University , the greenish appearance of the river could be due to microcystis algae.

What's happening in #Uttarakhand is a result of absolute ignorance from state. The residents of Reni Village in #Chamoli district had filled a PIL in 2019 stating the environmentally disastrous activities by the private power company building the #RishiGangaPowerProject

The company also used explosives in the area which falls within the sensitive Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve.
As a result, the wild animals fled the area.
Today, the state is witnessing a natural calamity which is a consequence of neglect.
An avalanche broke in the river Dhauli Ganga and immediately flooded the mountain terrain. This led to destruction of the #RishiGangaPowerProject. High alert has been issued in the lower districts & along the course of river. Rescue work has also started by CRPF and SDRF

When Sri Ram killed Ravana – to nullify his Brahma Hatya Pataka Dosha on him he did Abhisheka to Shri Shiva. Unfortunately Sri Hanuman could not reach the Temple on time with #Ganga water, Thus, Sri Rama shot an arrow on a hill stone creating the Rama Theertha & @rightwingchora Rama Theertham. This is the...
completed the Pooja. Rama Theertha is a tiny water fall spring about 9 meters high. The force will be same thru out the year even in hot summer, & no one could identify the source of the tiny water fall coming from hill stone.

A top (retired) bureaucrat reminded me that today marks the silver jubilee of @H_D_Devegowda being sworn in as PM (01 June 1996). I told him it is actually a year short, but, he said there is no harm in ushering it a year earlier. I asked why? 1/6
Troubled about developments in India’s neighbourhood and at the borders, he said, Gowda did so much to build goodwill in the neighbourhood during his short tenure, which has never been acknowledged by the lords in #Lutyens. 2/6
He was the most trusted PM in #Kashmir, held polls there after a decade. He had a fantastic thing going with #Pakistan. He was the first PM to focus on the North#East and stay there overnight; create a special cell in the PMO, and release a special multi-crore package. 3/6
