#India's Supreme Court clears the way for construction of #Hindu temple on site of destroyed #BabriMasjid in #Ayodhya.

I've been following this issue for 30+ years. Here's a thread analyzing the #AyodhyaJudgment:…
2/n #AyodhyaJudgment
-I first visited #Ayodhya (& #BabriMasjid) in 1990: before the masjid was destroyed, before I entered the field of #anthropology. I went there while researching my first book, "Arrow of the Blue-Skinned God": A re-tracing of the #Hindu epic #Ramayana...
3/n #AyodhyaJudgment
...In my book, I take what I hope is an even-handed approach. For what it's worth, I've received approving messages from #Hindutva activists & #secularists alike. You can judge for yourself:…

Secret Script of Sindhi Merchants
Among the Sindhi language speaking merchants of colonial India a secret script named Hat vāṇikī हट वाणिकी was used to keep accounts & business correspondence. The word "Hat vāṇikī" literally translates as "language of market traders".
This Brahmi based script was related to Khudawadī (another script used by Sindhi merchants) and Gurmukhi, the main difference being, absence of vowels markings (like an Abjad script) in Hat vāṇikī. It was more like a short-hand used by the global diaspora of Sindhi merchants.
An interesting anecdotes related to Hat vāṇikī is - a girl got married & went to live with her in-laws in another city. Some weeks later her in-laws sent a little note in Hat vāṇikī to her family saying that ‘Hiri miri veiahe’(‘She’s doing well’)...

महाभारत का मुर्शिदाबाद वर्ज़न

सहसा ही राजसभा में शांति छा गयी। ज्येष्ठ भ्राता के निर्देश पर पाञ्चाली को केश से घसीटते हुए दुःशासन सभा में ले आये। परमवीर परन्तु पराजित पाँचों पति नतमस्तक बैठे थे और दुर्योधन के मुख पर क्रूर स्मित थी।
राज वधु के क्रंदन से समस्त सभासदों का ह्रदय द्रवित था। दुर्योधन ने चीरहरण का आदेश दिया। युधिष्ठिर ने बिना कौरवों का नाम लिए घोर आपत्ति जताई, और बोले -
"ऐसे भी कुछ लोग हैं जो परस्त्रियों को निर्वस्त्र करना चाहते हैं, विश्व समुदाय को इनका संज्ञान लेना होगा। अमेरिका को भी अवश्य इन पर कार्यवाही करनी चाहिए।"

Today marks the 140th birth anniversary for #Periyar .
A thread.
With his birth name as Erode Venkatappa Ramasamy Naicker, he was born in Erode district in current Tamil Nadu. He dropped the caste suffix Naicker in 1929 and title #Periyar stuck with him thereafter since 1938. He later was called as Thanthai Periyar (Father Periyar).
Born in a Kannada Balija Naidu family, #Periyar and his brother Krishnasamy was named after avatars of Lord Venkatachalapathi (Vishnu) of Tirupati. After his father withdrew him from school for eating at a Chettiar's House, he worked at the family Mandi (godown).

The elections of 2014 first time saw Hindus vote consolidation, ergo, immediately post election, language split, caste split. Hindus as an entity makes 80%, therefore a victory needs it to be broken into entity of 6-7% each for 20% to decisively beat them. Thus Bhim Army, GargaC
We know language wars are stupid and ancient now. We know Hindi as a language used by 43% people should connect India and is not an Either/or with Regional language. why they make a comeback? Think. When reading English with Kannada or Malayalam doesn’t insult you, why #Hindi?
There are two parallel efforts, driven with same objective, that #Hindus must understand- breaking Hindus into Language and Lingayat, Bhasha and Bhim Army.
The complimentary move is to connect Muslims with global Ummah. So Kerala Muslims stand with Kashmir Muslims.

#LanguageTrivia: A common catchphrase in English language for speech or text being indecipherable to a person is - "It's all Greek to me!" [1/n]
The genesis of this phrase is often cited as dating back to 1599 when Shakespeare's Casca conspiring against Julius Caesar said, “Those that understood him smiled at one another and shook their heads, but, for mine own part, it was Greek to me.” [2/n]
However, prior to its usage by Shakespeare, English poet Gascoigne, circa 1566, while interpreting an Italian comedy into english wrote, "This geare (talk) is Greeke to me; either it hangs not well together, or I am very dull of understanding: speak plaine, I pray you.” [3/n]

It is a fact that both Indo-Aryan & Dravidian languages have morphemes with similar semantic & grammatical properties. One of them is #Hindi / Urdu भी bhī which derives from #Sanskrit अपि api. Interestingly Sanskrit api is a calque of #Dravidian –um. Of course -api (< IE ∗epi)
The 4 senses of भी bhī in Hindi or similar morphemes in other Modern Indo-Aryan languages viz ''coordination; inclusion; generalization & indefiniteness; and concession'' have been shown to be similar in use with Dravidian -um particle (which exhibits a spectrum of 5 senses)
While #Sanskrit api & #Dravidian -um both have 5 senses: “also”; “and”; “even” or “even if” or “even so” or “even though”; “without exception'', as in sarve pi “all of them , without exception”; &, with an interrogative pronoun or derivative, “all who”, as in ko ‘pi 'whoever”.

#Hindus have lived in dark for almost 70yrs in absence of correct history, completely ignorant of the wicked misdeeds of #Congress against the Hindu nation!
Was the spirit of #VandeMataram diluted for personal gains? @INCIndia
The 1st day of 2019 began with #Congress CM Kamalnath rejecting #VandeMataram singing at the Secretariat
says, ‘we’ve sung it from time-to-time, need no certificate of patriotism from anyone’
Well @OfficeOfKNath
justify the events in the following thread & prove ur nationalism!
The revolutionaries in Bengal had a profound impact on entire country
An alarmed Viceroy, Lord Curzon combined with residue of islamic Imperialism partitioned Bengal to eliminate looming threat

#नवरात्रि द्वितीया। कल शैलपुत्री की कथा के बाद, नारी के पुत्री रूप के पश्चात #ब्रह्मचारिणी माँ की कथा पढ़ें । #Navaratri #brahmacharini #Story #Hindi #कथा
शैलपुत्री पिता के संरक्षण मे बालसुलभ हठ एवम् आनंद की कथा थी। बिटिया को बताया कि घर से निकल चुकी उस कन्या का है। आज की कथा मेट्रो, ऑटो, बसो मे अस्तित्व का स्थान ढूँढती ब्रह्मचारिणी का है।
या देवी सर्वभूतेषु मां बह्मचारिणी रूपेण संस्थिता।
नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम:।।

शैलसुते पिता की ड्योढ़ी लाँघ कर कैलाश पहुँच गई। नव-यौवनावस्था प्रिय के घर पहुँची तो स्वागत मे एक उदासीन, आत्मा को पिघला देने वाला अँधकार था। पिता के अश्रुपूरित नेत्रों को त्याग कर सुहागिन आँगन के स्थान पर देवि ब्रह्मचारिणी ने एक निस्तब्ध, अपरिचित अँधकार में पदार्पण किया।

British, through Aligarh movement, Partition of Bengal
Morley Minto Reforms(1909, separate electorate for Muslims, recognising them as a separate section of 🇮🇳 triggering the cancer)
encouragement to Muslim League ensured that Muslims remained on their side.
From its very inception #Congress followed #MuslimAppeasement

Lodging-boarding(Mess fee 10/-)was free for Ms dressed in silk embroidered chogas & gold who ate delicacies & enjoyed at the expense of a struggling nation!
@INCIndia sowed seeds of communal politics & privilages by committing blunder of approving 1/3rd representations of Muslims on basis of minority-1916 Lucknow Pact
Only voice of disapproval was #MadanMohanMalviya

कर्नाटक की कुमारस्वामी सरकार #Hindi #Satire
कर्नाटका के लोग बहुत ही स्वाभिमानी हैं, विशेषकर महानगरों के लोग और प्रवासी कन्नडिगा। हिंदी मे हम इस प्रदेश को कर्नाटक के नाम से पुकारते है परंतु ऐसे विदेशी कन्नड़ बंधु दोनों बातों पर आपत्ति उठा सकते है- पहली, कि हिंदी वाले उनके राज्य का नाम पुकारते ही क्यों हैं?
दूसरी ये कि पुकारते हैं तो आख़िर का आ क्यों खा जाते हैं। ऐसा नहीं है कि विंध्याचल के इस पार से आने वाली आवाज़ से इन्हें कष्ट है, कष्ट वही है जो यहाँ के प्रबुद्ध, प्रवासी अर्थशास्त्रियों को है। जब दक्षिण वासी आपको रामा, लक्ष्मणा, भरत.. छोड़िये, इसको जाने दीजिये।

#Hindi #Satire #KarnatakaElections Ashoka in Karnataka - कर्नाटक में अशोक
कहते हैं महान लोग मरणोपरांत धरती को अनिवार्य रूप से नहीं त्यागते, सिर्फ़ जन्म जन्मातर का भय त्याग कर तीनों लोकों में आत्मा स्वरूप विचरण करते हैं। यहाँ हम उनकी बात कर रहे हैं जो सार्वभौमिक रूप से महान हैं, वरना तो स्वतंत्रता के बाद महान लोगों की संख्या में ग़ज़ब वृद्धि हुई है।
हम जिस श्रेणी के व्यक्तियों की बात करते हैं वह आर्गेनिक रूप से महानता में स्थापित हुए हैं, जैसे अशोक, चंद्रगुप्त, विक्रमादित्य, अलक्षेंद्र । चमचों के द्वारा इस वर्ग में धकेले गए व्यक्तियों को हम इसमें नहीं ले रहे है।

#किष्किंधाकांड - आधुनिक परिपेक्ष्य #Hindi #Satire
बहुत वर्ष पहले श्री राम की पत्नी, सीता जी का रावण ने हरण किया और उन्हें श्रीलंका में बँधित कर के रखा। जीवन भर मखाने की खीर, चूड़ा-दही खाने वाली मैथिल जानकी को रावण ने कर्ड-राईस के डायट पर डाल दिया।
उधर रावण की उत्तर भारतीय शिव जी के प्रति श्रद्धा के कारण अच्छी थू थू हो चुकी थी। एमएनएस और एमएनएम के दौर में आवश्यक था कि रावण अपनी द्रविड़ राजनीति पर पकड़ को मज़बूत करे।

धर्म संकट में है, धर्म ध्वजा धूलि-धूसरित हवा में कटी छिपकली की पूँछ की तरह फड़फड़ा रही है। लेनदारों के भय से,चेहरे पर रूमाल बाँध कर पिछवाड़े के रास्ते से घर से पलायन करने वाले भी राह चलतों को पकड़ कर दरयाफ़्त करते हैं - भई, देश का क्या होगा?
उदारीकरण के पथरप्रदर्शकों ने उधार दिया, और जम कर दिया। बाज़ार में ऐसी तरलता लाई गई कि आज भी राष्ट्र कल्लू हलवाई की तोंद की तरह थिरक रहा है। एक चकाचौंध भरी तरक़्क़ी यूँ चमकी सारे देश ने करूणानिधि वाले चश्मे चढ़ा लिए। उदारिकरण के अँधे को सब हरा ही हरा दीखता था।

1/ Manu (The progenitor of Humankind)
All different races of Mankind are derived from Manu and Shradha. The current Manu is Vaivasvata Manu.
2/ The word Manu literary means man but it is a title given to the progenitor of mankind. According to Hindu Puranas there are many kalpas (One day of Lord Brahma the creator) and each Kalpa has 14 manvantara and each manvatara has one manu. So basically each Kalpa has 14 Manus.
3/ The current manu of the present manvantara is Shraddhadeva or Vaivasvata Manu of this current Kalpa. He is the son of Vivasvat (Probably Surya) and is therefore also known as Manu-vaivasvata.
