1/20 unfinished thoughts...#online Church has been dismissed for years: a ‘last resort’, a ‘pale imitation’, ‘only just better than nothing’ are 3 verdicts I've heard. Some say how much they #mourn the loss of meeting in church buildings. It's a heavy loss, a significant sorrow.
2/20 But, as with many who #grieve, in our sorrow we must be careful not to #wound others, as #mainstream #church struggles to inhabit what has been the lived, continuous (sometimes total) experience of #disabled #christians, Christians with #mentalhealth struggles...
3/20 ...Christians who are #carers for those who can't #access #Church as we knew it & Christians who work shifts. In our thrashing about in this new arena, we should be careful not to push out those whose #spiritual #home this has been for a long time...

I truly appreciate the 12 gauge shotgun that @realDonaldTrump proves himself to be day after day.

But I wish he would get the terms he uses right.
If he "#adjourns" the #Congress, they will go #home. And the #Constitution gives him the power to adjourn Congress when the House and the Senate cannot agree on adjournment.

But what he wants to do is call the Congress back to Washington. That act is the #convening of Congress.
#HarryTruman did this, just months in advance of his election victory over #ThomasDewey.

What did Truman do?

He "convened" Congress.

This "convening" calls Congress into session. It is a power that the Constitution also gives to the president:

Thinking of taking your loved one out of #longtermcare during the #covid19 ? There is *no easy answer*. But here are few things to think about:
1) Do they need to be transferred (bed / toilet / shower) and how would you do that?
2) Do they need a Hoyer lift? (thread continues)
3) Do you have the medications and expertise to provide the medical care?
4) Are you in danger of infecting other vulnerable members of your household?
5) How will you support them if they have dementia?
6) Do you have knowledge on how to support #incontinence & the products?
7) Who will you call if they get sicker either with #Covid19 or their underlying #health issues?
8) are they going to lose their #placement in the #nursinghome (in Ontario - the answer would be yes)
9) who else in your home needs care?
10) how will you support #socialengagement?

As i was coming back from our milk dairy, i saw a group of 12-15 people (men, women and kids) walking with theit belongings.....i went pass them and stopped my scooty to talk to them. My first thought was that they may be going back for lack of food....so Qn followed.. #Home
I asked if they are leaving for want of food.....pat came reply....nahin saab khana to mil raha hai....police ne aa kar diya....log bhi de rahe hain ...lekin kya karenge ....thekedar ne kaam se nikal diya hai...kuch aur kaam hai nahin......karenge kya ..... #Home
So my next Qn was naturally about their destination......and it turned out that they all were from same village in Bareilly.....and although i knew but still asked....how will u go then....saab kuch milega to theek..varna paidal pahunch jaayenge..... #Home

It Is #TIME To (UNLOCK) EVERYONES Brains To %(?)
What % Of The Brain Does The AVERAGE Individual USE ..?

My Eyes Are Starting To CHANGE Like This For Some Reason.

Strange.
Many Governments ENSLAVE Their People And Are Just "RATS In A Cage " To THEM..
Givin (NOTHING) For So Long, People Start Doing EVERYTHING & ANYTHING,
...They Can To Survive..
So After TIME, Different 3RD World Countries Adapt To A NORMAL Life Style To Them, But To EVERYONE Else It's Horrifying.

"Modi’s external balancing game is either shrewd and ambitious or naive and dangerous, depending on whom in Delhi you speak to."

Here's a long THREAD with annotated quotes from my recent strategic-geostrategy essay...
brookings.edu/opinions/is-mo…
Every few months or so, I get out of my "neighbourhood" shell and take a look at the big picture of India's foreign policy. This 5k words essay focuses on the big Delhi debate: how should India (re)align in an changing world order? I analyze a range of positions... highlights:
"The world order’s volatility has animated the eternal Indian #debate about the tactical terms of strategic diversification ...how exactly should Delhi balance these — competing/conflicting—friends, partners, and allies into a bundle that enhances India’s strategic autonomy?"

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.
Since Oct 2018, I have collaborated with Dr. Henrike Donner, who is leading it, to develop #researchcollaborations with #educational and #development organisations in India to implement a pilot study on #genderurbanhousing. This workshop marks the end of the first phase.

My parents moved out of Chennai to settle in kumbakonam 4 years ago. I was here three years ago with “more than I could handle” set of issues. I’m back 3 years later at ease with only one motive ‘RELAX’. Life here is a mix of the modern and orthodox.
My parents have adapted so easily probably because this is how it was while they were growing up, the current old style was the only style when they were young.
I was always the kitchen help, running errands everyday till my teens until board exams took over. She used to give me a wired bag to buy stuff and it was an involuntary action to pick it up while getting out. I don’t remember when I changed and carry bags literally blinded me.

#JhelumFables , a 5 day visual storytelling workshop which I am conducting with youth in #Kashmir kicked off today. There couldn't have been a better classroom than the picturesque houseboat ROOTS situated on river Jhelum.

P.S: The best way to spend holidays in company of ✏️📸
#JHELUMFABLES
On day two of the visual storytelling workshop I interacted with each participant. We did small excercises to enhance imagination. Later they chose quaint corners of Roots houseboat situated on river #Jhelum & scribbled stories in company of wood & water. #Kashmir
Light experiments inside classroom on day 3 of #JhelumFables
A chair placed on the wooden Verandah of the houseboat facing west became a prop for portrait shooting- as participants tried side lighting & back lighting before venturing out on the river banks with their camera & pen

Looking at my #Gucci, it's about that time. It's #Cancer time. (Older heads will know, I likely don't literally have a Gucci. But a stroll down hip-hop memory lane is apt for this sign, no?)
And this is special for me since there might be folks of a particular sign, either by Sun, moon or rising, who are your Ride-or-die folks. Well, #Cancers are mine. I don't have to go looking for them or that. It just happens. Consistently. So, they're dear people for me.
Once consciousness has explored dimensions of risk & curiosity in #Gemini, it seeks out safety, responsibility, containment & renewal in #Cancer

no one leaves home unless home chases you
fire under feet
hot blood in your belly
it’s not something you ever thought of doing
until the blade burnt threats into
your neck
and even then you carried the anthem under
your breath

#home #warsanshire #poems
#WhereAreTheChildren
only tearing up your passport in an airport toilets
sobbing as each mouthful of paper
made it clear that you wouldn’t be going back.

you have to understand,
that no one puts their children in a boat
unless the water is safer than the land
no one burns their palms
under trains
beneath carriages
no one spends days and nights in the stomach of a truck
feeding on newspaper unless the miles travelled
means something more than journey.
no one crawls under fences
no one wants to be beaten
pitied

Went to Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan today. Official population at 53,967, according to @UNHCR as of February 2018. All Syrian #refugees.

In many ways it was not what I expected.
First thing you notice is how remote the location is — some 100 kms east of Amman; 20 kms from Azraq town; 75 kms to Saudi Arabia; 255 kms to Iraq; and 90 kms to the Syrian border — from which its inhabitants fled.
At the same time, the harshness of the setting — a hardscrabble, sprawling 15 square km patch, scratched, etched and stretched out of endless rolling desert.

The perimeter was equally formidable, with security fencing, official patrols, check points and razor wire.
