Many liberals are amazed that people believe the obvious lies that the Modi government puts out about China. There's a clear inconsistency between Modi saying that China didn't take any territory and army commanders regularly meeting their Chinese counterparts to negotiate.

They're practically begging the Chinese to leave, and the Chinese are refusing. If that were not the case, there would be no need to talk.

Also, the #Indian #Military position MUST BE WEAK, otherwise we would have kicked out the #Chinese. We simply cannot.

So why isn't the Indian public angry with #Modi?

For the same reason they were not angry with #Nehru in 1962.


Indians have a tendency to place their heroes on a pedestal and worship them. As long as they are on that pedestal, they can do no wrong.

This is why I do not think much of #SubhasChandraBose

Read this thread about the brutal treatment of #Malaya #Tamils by the Japanese in building the #DeathRailway

Bose wanted to take help from the Japanese in "liberating" #India.

Why would the Japanese ever care about "liberating" India from #British rule?

The #Japanese were imperialists. They wanted to conquer all of Asia and the Pacific.

They had already annexed #Manchuria in 1931, and everyone knew about their brutal treatment of the #Chinese.

The Japanese followed this up with the #RapeOfNanjing in 1937. This was followed by the establishment of #Unit731 in the city of #Harbin in Northeast #China, scene of one of the most egregious #CrimesAgainstHumanity in history, carried out by the #ImperialJapaneseArmy

L'affaire #Dorsey

There's been a minor kerfuffle in India for the last two days since the Twitter ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey, @jack, made some statements about freedom of speech in India under #Modi.

A 🧵

#Liberals are gleefully sharing these comments as evidence of #India not being a democratic country, and defenders of the government are going into attack dog mode, as usual.

But many people on both sides are missing some key things here:

1. Dorsey didn't talk only about India. In fact, he also talked about how the #USA government tried to suppress things. As also #Turkey, #Nigeria.

2. This points to a deeper issue underlying the whole controversy: Is #FreedomOfSpeech absolute?

1. Thread on organisations plotting against #Indian PM #NarendraModi.

Share it to max people to make them understand how these propaganda organisations work!!

17 so called civil rights organisations call on President #Biden to cancel the invitation to #Modi ji. ImageImage
2. The main organisation behind these is #IAMC or Indian American Muslims Council.

Fact : The organisation is alleged to have links with several terrorists organisations. Just check the links here : Image
3. #FreedomHouse says that #India's democracy is Partly Free.

Fact :
How many of you believe this?

Moreover this organisation is funded by George #Soros who has pledged $ 1Billion to fight Modi!!

This is from the list of "rationalized content" - i.e., stuff that will be dropped - from the syllabus of class X, from the website of the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT) in India.…

(1/) Image
The rationale for the "rationalisation" of content is that the same subjects are covered in a higher class.

So evolution is covered in XII standard biology, and the periodic table in XII standard chemistry. So why teach it in Xth?

(2/) Image
The problem with this logic is that, in India, students opt for different "streams" after the Xth standard (class X) board exam.

Some opt for science, some for commerce, some for arts.

Non-science stream students will NEVER encounter evolution or the periodic table again.

#Erdogan has won the elections in #Turkey.

#Indian #liberals are dismayed because Erdogan is trying to #Islamize Turkey.

But this is a decision of the people of Turkey.

Erdogan has won through a democratic, free and fair election.

This is what the people of Turkey want.

If you claim to love #Democracy, that is, the will of the people, then you should be happy with this result.

Erdogan is a #Democrat. He is not #Liberal. He converted the #HagiaSophia into a mosque.

But #Democracy has NOTHING TO DO with #Liberalism, and vice versa.

#Ataturk was a #Liberal in every sense of the word. He abolished the #Caliphate, closed down #Madarsa s, changed the language of the country from #Arabic to #Turkish, banned the #Fez cap, banned the #Sufi and #Dervish orders, and promoted scientific thinking.

2. "The #BRI Status: A Grand Report on Its Present and Future" sheds light on numerous challenges faced by BRI like:
cost overruns,
environmental damage,
funding issues,
repeated delays,
lack of progress,
and poor quality of development.
@Santos4Congress Image
3. According to our investigation, 62.8% of the countries that have joined the #BRI are #developing countries, while around 17% are #developed countries.

This suggests that the BRI is primarily focused on developing countries.

ये गलत प्रचार है कि यूक्रेन ने माँ काली के अपमान के लिए माफ़ी मांगी है। यूक्रेन ने केवल “खेद” प्रकट किया है और इसे माफ़ी नहीं कह सकते। यूक्रेन एक दोगला मुल्क है, सहायता बंद करनी चाहिए।

आज कुछ अख़बारों में कहा गया है कि यूक्रेन ने मां काली की अपमानजनक पोस्ट के लिए (1/12) Image
माफ़ी मांग ली है। यह सरासर मिथ्या प्रचार है क्योंकि यूक्रेन ने केवल “खेद” प्रकट किया है और “खेद” प्रकट करने को किसी तरह मांफी मांगना नहीं कहा जा सकता।

यूक्रेन के रक्षा मंत्रालय ने 30 अप्रैल को ट्वीट की गई पोस्ट में मां काली को विस्फोट के धुएं के गुबार के ऊपर गले में (2/12)
नरमुंडों की माला पहने जीभ निकाले दिखाया गया था। इसके साथ ही यह प्रसिद्ध अभिनेत्री मर्लिन मुनरो की फ्लाइंग स्कर्ट मुद्रा में दिखाई गई थी। इस पोस्ट का कैप्शन लिखा था, “वर्क ऑफ़ आर्ट”।

इस पोस्ट पर भारत के लोगों ने प्रचंड विरोध किया और यूक्रेन से आधिकारिक माफ़ी की मांग की (3/12)

#Chapter8 of #StraightFromTheHeart by @rk_process9
Should you consider Machine Translation? Image
@rk_process9 #ChatGPT has generated more interest & debate in recent months than any other #tech in decades. It has accomplished tasks previously only seen in #scifi movies or read in fiction, marking a significant milestone in the field of #ai.
In 1950, father of #AI - Alan Turing, devised a test where a #machine could be considered AI, if one can't differentiate its responses from a human's. If a machine can accurately #translate text from one language to another, like a human, it would pass the Turing test.

Lets list in my opinion the worst decisions taken or nearly taken by largest navies around the world. #εpsilon Image
The #USNavy #Zumwaltclass destroyers were supposed to have #AGS capable of firing ultra long range 155mm shells, have no shells as they were canceled. Now, to re-add the X-factor the #USN is replacing AGS guns with VLS for upto 12 hypersonic missiles. Costing a lot of $$$$$$$$$s Image
Once the greatest #Navy on Earth, decided it was too great and powerful to have a ship mounted AShM. The #Brits decided #RoyalNavy could retire its #Harpoons without procuring a replacement anytime soon. Luckily , it didnt happen. This is why I feel #UK will cause #AUKUS to fail? Image

BOY! The amt of disinfo here can make it difficult for anyone to decide true & false. Given the conflicts that are raging & political posturing between #US & #China #US & #Russia #UkraineRussiaWar #RussiaUkraineWar #India & #China I have a unique thread #εpsilon Image
No. 1, The event eg. something happens btw 2 countries, trust in this order and identify overlaps. The overlap is usually true.
1: Unedited videos of same event, multiple angles
2: Unedited pics of same event, multiple angles
3: Directly or indirectly corroborated by both
eg.... Image
Eg 1. Moskva sinking
3a: #Ukraine claim, Moskva sunk by AShMs
3b: #Russsia claim, Moskva sunk by fire & storm
2: Pics of Moskva with sooty hull, big black marks/holes on the hull near water line away from openings.
1: Video of Moskva showing all in pt 2.
Conc: Moskva sunk by AShM Image

This is a opposite #whatwerethedesignersthinking thread. The #Russians built a 5,000 tonne frigate that has more missiles than several larger contemporaries. It has 16 AShMs VLS (2 3S14 8 cell UKSK modules) and 32 Redut SAM VLS for 9M96E 40 km and 9M96E2 120 km missiles. #εpsilon Image
My very scientific metric 115 tonne per missile (I know it is not scientific, just a fun metric). For eg. #Indian #Kolkataclass is 154 tonne per missile, #British #Daringclass is 168 tonne per missile. But, those are destroyers and have larger stores for longer deployments Image
It is funny that these frigates have the same peer armament as #IndianNavy MF-STAR destroyers with equally potent AD & AShMs at 2/3rds the displacement which limits endurance for this #Russian ship. The Gorkys are based on elongated Krivak/#Talwarclass/Admiral Grigorovich hulls.. Image

My Indian followers,#Russians have benefitted a lot from you guys designing and purchasing #Russian origin gear for them to swoop in and buy some you guys paid to develop or revive. Exhibit A: Su-30MKI becomes Su-30SM. #εpsilon ImageImage
There are two distinct #Su30 lines, #Indian #Su30MKI at Irkut plant and its derivatives and #Chinese #Su30MKK at KNAAPO plant and its derivatives. The Su-30SM, bought in nos is from MKI lineage. To be fair #Russianairforce also bought 18 Su-30M2s to keep KNAAPO busy before #Su35S ImageImage
Exhibit B: MiG-29K operated by the #IndianNavy made sure that the #Russians can buy a few for themselves after the #Indian production run was done. Else, they might have stuck to upgrading their Su-33s in the long run. ImageImage

🔴Why did the Indian Peace-Keeping Mission in Sri-Lanka Failed

..ship while a military band played "Auld Lang Syne’ said "They came on a peace mission, but then they got bogged down". The Indian intervention in the Sri Lankan Civil War was the deployment of the Indian Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka intended to perform a peacekeeping role.
The deployment followed the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord between India and Sri Lanka of 1987 which was intended to end the #SriLankan Civil War between militant Sri Lankan #Tamil nationalists, principally the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (#LTTE), and the Sri Lankan military.

Our previous threads on naval vessels have highlighted the lack of AD on #Pakistan's #Zulfiqarclass, lack of any missiles on #Indian #Kamortaclass. But does an ideally armed vessel for its size look like? The #Russian Stereguschchiy class says hi! #εpsilon Image
These are sadly the only two blue water capable naval surface vessels #Russians have been able to produce in numbers. With 8 (including related Gremyashchiy) in service and 20+ planned, these will be the bulk of the #RussianNavy fleet Image
For a 2,000 tonne corvette the Stereguschchiys have 16 SAMs derived from the S350/S400 9M96 family of missiles capable of 40 km to 120 km engagement zone. The lead ship lacks this and has a Kashtan CIWS on the bow. They carry 8 Kh-35s as well. Gremyashchiys have a UKSK module... Image

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.

Indian Cough Syrup Scandal- A 🧵

In July last year, over 20 children with kidney failure were hospitalized in the pediatric emergency unit of the Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital in #Gambia.

Later, almost everyone passed away.

1/13 Image
Doctors, who typically see one or two instances like this each year, were perplexed.

The #Gambian health ministry authorities believed the issue was contaminated water as it was the rainy season. Nonetheless, several specialists thought the children had been poisoned.

2/13 Image
Three months later, global health experts linked the deaths of more than 70 #Gambian children from Acute Kidney Injury to cough syrups manufactured in #India that were contaminated with ethylene glycol (EG) and diethylene glycol (DEG).

⭐️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.
