Pls, stop promoting and propagating lies about what @RahulGandhi said in #London.
Were you there?
Did you see the video? 
Do you really know what he said?
In what context? 
What was the main message?
For clarification pls, note that @RahulGandhi basically said the following:
1.Indian Democracy is Global Public Good.
2.The state of democracy in India is of concern.
3.It is an  Indian problem, and we will deal with it.
He never invited any foreign countries to help.
I was there as an Indian professional with a logical, rational, and open mind, eyes, and ears.

⭐️One of the largest banks in the U.S., #SiliconValleyBank, has gone bankrupt. This is the largest bankruptcy in the United States since the 2008 financial crisis.
It has raised question marks on the existence of 1000's of startups in the US and in India too.
1. California banking regulators pulled the shutters on #SiliconValleyBank (SVB), a lender to some of the largest tech companies in the world, on 10th March, making it the largest bank to fail since the global financial crisis of 2008.
2. US regulators closed #SiliconValleyBank and took control of its deposits, a move which puts nearly $175 billion in customer deposits under the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp’s control.

The Bucher Papers - A 🧵

#India has long been accused of attempting to stop the declassification of documents from 1947 pertaining to #Kashmir out of concern that the "sensitive" letters might have an impact on international relations.

The letters, also known as the Bucher papers, are thought to include political and military grounds for Jawaharlal Nehru, #India's first prime minister, to request a cease-fire with #Pakistan and grant the state of Jammu & Kashmir special status.

For the current nationalist government in Delhi, which has derided Nehru's decision to reach a compromise on status of disputed Kashmir as an ignorant "blunder," the correspondence from the then-commander-in-chief, Gen. Roy Bucher, will have major political implications.

He then went to #Pakistan to meet Yahya Khan in 1971 who funded him to start #Khalistan movement.

Chohan lost election because he & his ideology was REJECTED by #Punjab. Today, this junk ideology is supported by:

On this day in 2007, the bomb blasts in #SamjhautaExpress killed 68 people including 44 #Pakistanis . The immediate investigations revealed irrefutable evidence about the masterminds. In this thread, We would share some #Indian newspaper clips which covered the investigations.
1. Lt Col Prasad Purohit, a serving #IndianArmy officer, was arrested for terror conspiracy in the Malegaon blast case. He was the co founder of #AbhinavBharat, a right wing Hindu organisation. He admitted that he was the mastermind.

(@TheTimesofIndia, Pune, 7 November 2008)
2. Lt Col Purohit met Pragya Thakur on 5 Oct 2008 to tell her that "Our People" had carried out the killings in Orissa, burnt down two churches and also carried out the Malegaon blast.

🧵: A new image (1) of Chinese forces carrying a mace-like club, "the Wolf Fang" has been circulating

Much of the analysis indicates that these are intended for use on the #Indian-#China border - I don't think that's the case. Images 2 & 3 are from '16 & '18 respectively
Recently, the Chinese government posted a requisition request for 2,600 additional wolf fangs. While it's entirely possible that some of these will make their way to the contested regions in Kashmir, the current evidence points to domestic application
On 6/15/20 China & India engaged in hand-to-hand combat in the Galwan valley leaving at least 20 dead. On 12/9/22, the 2 forces clashed again in the Tawang sector, 1,000 miles to the northwest of Galwan valley

Is bypassing regulatory oversight, including evaluation, the answer to solving medicines shortages that were caused by not only dollar shortages but sheer inefficiency, lethargy, lack of coordination and procrastination? Are walk-in offers by unregistered pharma companies ok?
While grateful for #India's credit line for medical supplies, and while appreciating that it mandates procurement via #Indian companies, did India ask #SriLanka to bypass regulatory oversight?
Did #Indian suppliers influence #SriLanka's health ministry to list all manner of non-essential, non-urgent medicines, including shampoo and cough medicines, on the procurement lists? If not, why is Sri Lanka borrowing for such items when even vital cancer drugs are unavailable?

"The Gujarat earthquake was rattling, but for many, their real earthquake came afterwards", a broker.

Many people who gambled with other people's funds, with their knowledge or without, could finally smell the money - but unfortunately it was the smell of money burning.
But the better prices are too late for the players who lost so much, and thought DEATH was their only option.

Markets recovered later, Regulators vowed to tighten up trading rules & a parliamentary panel to investigate the sell-offs.

4A. Date.
#Mythbusting #Indian Food is native to #India
Date is native to India!
The claim that was made that Date was brought to India by Arabs/Moghuls/Portuguese is false. Read the whole thread to conclude.
All references given at the end.
Chapter 6 of Madanapala Nighantu described date in 12th century, 250 years before the word "Date" came into English language. (Check M-W for word history in English)
Madanapala calls it खर्जूरिका

4. Claim is made that Date (Karjura) was brought to India by the Arabs/Portuguese.
#Mythbusting #Indian Food is native to #India

Let us check that claim.
Before we do that, I will take this opportunity to educate you on the methods used.
Till today, the standards used by Indian historians have been very arbitrary and have been farcical.
Standards of scientific proof in fields such as bioscience, food science, history, agronomy, and culture were not very well developed in India.
Sanathana is a wounded civilization. It really does not need huge burden of proof to prove that colonizers incorrectly assigned "external debt".
Yet I am taking extremely high standards and explaining the standards here.

#Indian patients with ischemic #stroke are 19 years younger than British

2. Even among British, Stroke patients of South Asian ethnicity were 9 years younger as compared to White British.
*Ethnicity is an independent predictor of early age of stroke onset.
3. Risk factors such as hypertension, atrial fibrillation, ischemic heart disease, alcohol use & obesity contributed to strokes occurring at younger age in Indians.
Consuming carbohydrate-rich diet and lack of physical activity were other risk factors for stroke among Indians.

Gather together because I have strange story to tell you. A very well dressed foreign man with residency here tried to bribe border guards to allow entry of 4 #Indian nationals into #Odesa from #Moldova.
I know what you will say. Odesa is famous destination. Of course 4 foreign nationals want to be here. Four Indian men needed to enter Odesa during war, bombings, no power and heat during winter for holiday?🙄 They had to enter so urgently, they needed to bribe their way here?
Or you might think human traffickers are moving Indian workers into area so on alert that every elder now has smart phone and hunt for spies just to bring 4 South Asian men here they cannot move through Turkey because of war🤦🏼‍♀️. There is one more piece of data.

How Mantra chanting helps?
To understand benefits of Mantrachanting, one must know process of Shabda Utpatti (physiology of speech) according to Paniniya Shiksha –Text which paved the grammar of Sanskrit language and explained extensively scientific basis for production of speech ImageImageImage
It is explained as Examination of Vishaya(objectives) by Atma & Buddhi(intellect). Atma along with Buddhi(intellect) makes Manas to indulge in Vishaya(objectives). Mana(#mind) kindles Kayagni(entity which brings about all types of digestions). It gives stimulus to Vayu.
Vayu moves in the Uras(thorax region). In Uras(thorax) Vayu generates Mandra(yielding) Swara(resonance). Swara (resonance) produced by Vata Dosha in Uras, moves to Moordha(head region). Getting the way to Moordha(headregion) words are expressed as speech by Vaktra(mouth)
