We are planning to visit the Shakti Peethas in #HimachalPradesh and then a short, relaxing, laid back stay somewhere in the mountains!

While exploring, I came across this beautiful place McLeod Ganj.

As always, I got distracted and started researching history of this name - Image
It is named after Sir Donald Freill McLeod who fell in love with this place. Ganj means neighborhood in Farsi.

More about McLeod: He was such a great Christian that a native gentleman gave him a “compliment” that “If all Christians were like Sir Donald McLeod, there would be no Image
Hindus or Mahommedans.”

He devoted his life to civilize the heathens of India, who were in idolatrous darkness! ImageImage

My 2 bits on #HimachalPradeshelections2022 it will be a close race, with BJP getting a simple majority.
Basically there are 3 main divisions in the state and shall be looking at each division specifically.
Kangra- Largest division of HP, with 25 seats, last time BJP swept here with 18 seats. This division contains districts of Chamba, Kangra,Una.
Kangra district is the most crucial of all with 15 seats, basically who leads here, wins Himachal.
Last time BJP won 10/15 seats in Kangra dt, this time it would be a more closer race with BJP just about edging Congress here. Overall prediction for Kangra division this time
BJP-15, Congress-10

Remember puffing on red-tipped Phantom Sweet Cigarettes as a child, to look cool?
With huge advertising, smoking was made a fashionably acceptable social behaviour, at work, in bars, cinemas
homes etc; imposing all activities being incomplete without a #Cigarette !
Smoking #cigarette was legitimated, celebrated & glamourized on Hollywood screen through stars like Edward G. Robinson, James Cagney
Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper
Humphrey Bogart,Lauren Bacall Marlene Dietrich etc, ensuring that it’d never lose its sophisticated lofty significance
#Cigarette was ‘imposed’ across all social classes & women!
In 1925, #Marlboro was introduced as a woman’s cigarette, ‘Mild as May’
The poison was thus transported to the rest of the world!
By 17th cent, 🇮🇳, China,SE Asia
Middle East, WAfrica started growing #tobacco
