#WildlifeWeek is here. This week I will be sharing 7 #positive wildlife reintroduction stories from around the country. One story for each day. A small thread.
Day 1 - The return of Gaur in Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve !!!
1/7 Image
#Gaur the largest #bovine in peninsular #India, was previously found in three discreet populations in Southern India (Western Ghats and #Nilgiri plateau), Central India (#Vidarbha, southern MP, #Chhattisgarh and Eastern ghats in #Odisha) and North-East India.
2/7
Gaur were historically found in #Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in small numbers. There were around 30-35 Gaur in BTR in the early 1990s, which had dwindled to just one individual in 1996 and zero in 1998.

Remember this world. Remember that country of #Gandhi sided with most violent colonizing thing since Rome fell. #India sided with evil that respects no life. They burn cows here for sport. They rape all living things. They put millions of Ukrainians in concentration camps
Some of them Indian ethnicity. They side with evil that stole 300k+ children. They sided with monster willing to starve and nuke world to take land that is not their own. Very people who believe in karma even after death and rebirth just condemn themselves. Don’t say it’s
Their leader. Why are their people not in streets? Indian friends here are ashamed. They won’t ever forgive their own country. Even #China condemn what Putin has done

World, all companies who outsource to Rashist collaborators must be pressured to pull out.

What the #US has offered to #Ukraine? Money and weapons so the Ukrainians can kill themselves and lose 15-20% of their territories.

Oh! And of course, sanctions... Important not to forget the sanctions.

Very slim outcome indeed.
What was the gain of #Europe to hide under the #US skirt?

Impoverishment, inflation, refugees, lack of energy and de-industrialisation.

Oh! And of course, sanctions.... We have imposed many sanctions on #Russia to flex our muscles and shoot ourselves in the head.
I wish, one day, #Europe can learn from #India, a #US ally but not enslaved, about sovereignty, and mainly from @DrSJaishankar. India is braver than most #EU nations.

Listen to the courageous Indian Foreign Minister.

#Population control In the 1950s and 1960s, much of the attention of eugenicists was focused on the new political interest in planetary population control. A new vocabulary anchored by the prospect of a “population bomb” (the title of Paul Ehrlich’s bestselling 1968 (1/18)
book) emerged as it became clear that the technologies of World War II had improved both life expectancy and in some instances infant mortality. The advent of antibiotics and pesticides, nutritional gains derived from food rationing and more ef f i cient agriculture, (2/18)

Today, 27th of September 2022, marks the commemoration of the victory of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India, peace be upon him, over an enemy of Islam, Dr John Alexander Dowie, a Scottish evangelist who founded the city of Zion, in Illinois, USA 🇺🇸.

1/
Dowie claimed to be Elijah, the Prophet. Dowie spoke viciously of Islam and Muslims.
In the Review of Religions of September 1902, Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah (pbuh), invited him to relinquish his claims.

2/
Dowie responded in “The Leaves of Healing”, dismissing the words of the Promised Messiah (pbuh) in a show of arrogance unbefitting of a person claiming to be from God.

Estafa 2: "La oficina oficial de turismo ha cerrado"
Aún así quieres ir a la oficina de turismo del gobierno.En la estación de Delhi.Allí personas compinchadas por vestíbulo y escaleras, hasta con uniforme falso, te dicen que ha cerrado. Pero se ofrecen a darte la nueva dirección

For #India, #Myanmar has been a key development partner in the neighbourhood. Since the last 1 decade & half, Delhi has spent more than $2 billion in various development projects in Myanmar (connectivity, border area dev, training, etc.).

How did the Feb 21 coup affect this? 1/n
One would think the coup choked #India's development aid programme in #Myanmar. But that's not true.

MEA dashboard shows high budgetary allocations & spendings after the coup. In fact, the amount 🇮🇳 disbursed in 2021-22 (Rs 598.25 cr/$72.5 mil) is the highest ever recorded. 2/n
The budgetary aid allocation for 2022-23 (1 yr after the coup) i.e. Rs 600 crore/$73 mil is also the highest ever for #Myanmar since MEA started publishing data.

Here's a snapshot of the same from the 2022-23 budget profile (4th column shows allocated amount for current FY). 3/n

Context: RSS #Hindtutva follower Nathuram Godse shot #Gandhi because he "loved Muslims." RSS destroyed 15th century Babri mosque, RSS butchered & raped 1000s of Muslims in #Gujarat. RSS fanatics now more emboldened than ever since #Modi came to power in #India. Violence against 1
