Correct . SAGARMATHA GIRISRINGA and not Mount Everest etc. // Everest did not even do the great survey work that established the altitude -it was done by an #Indian called RADHANATH SIKDAR ( why not Mount RADHANATH if we are to go by Everest ?? ). @IndiGenBharat ; @cbkwgl.… .....#Indian and a #BengaliHindu // A supremely talented surveyor who rendered great service to #Bharatvarsh // unknown to most people.
Wiki : " In 1851 a Survey Manual (eds. Capt. H. L. Thullier and Capt. F. Smyth) was published by the Survey Department. The preface to the Manual mentions that the more technical and mathematical chapters of the Manual were written by Babu Radhanath Sikdar."

.@DrSJaishankar: Three things keep me up at night — the shocks that the international order is experiencing, particularly in the past two years—the #COVID19 pandemic, #Afghanistan & #Ukraine, & the friction between the #West & #Russia, the #USA and #China

#Raisina2022 @MEAIndia
.@DrSJaishankar: You need to develop an operational matrix to respond to a changing world. In our case, especially since 2014-15, we have had greater clarity on how we engage the world—concentric circles, neighbourhood first, but also a conscious policy engaging the major powers.

If people don't know history, they should keep quiet, read books written by legitimate historians or autobiographies, or ask for more information from people who are in the know. Instead, there are blogs that promote traitors as "heroes" and "freedom fighters". +
Such declarations are outrageous and utterly disrespectful to people - and in fact - entire parties that were betrayed by these traitors. There is a blog that refers to Kailashpati Asthana, Yashpal and Veera Bhadra Tiwari as "revolutionary heroes". +
Referring to these three as "heroes" is absolute disgrace & should be called out in no uncertain & strongest terms.

Let's start with Kailashpati Asthana, allegedly "unsung hero" (as the blog refers to him), the man most responsible for the downfall of the #HSRA, headed by Azad

Learnt today that #alexanderthegreat of #macedonia #Greece had an #Indian guru the Greeks called "Kalanos" some say this was because he was a devotee of Kali .This #Hindu #Brahmin & Yogi stayed with Alexander till he was 73 & died by voluntarily walking into his own pyre
Ptolemy actually built his pyre & records the death as having taken place in Susa in 323BC .Kalanos distributed all the costly gifts he got from the king to the people and wore just a garland of flowers and chanted Vedic hymns as he walked into the Pyre.
He presented his horse to one of his Greek pupils named Lysimachus. He did not flinch as he burnt to the astonishment of those who watched. Although Alexander was not personally present at time of his immolation, his last words to Alexander were "We shall meet in Babylon".

#Thread #Astronomy #Stars #UPDATE

An international team of scientists led by #Indian #astronomers has spotted a new member belonging to the extremely rare group of young stars that exhibit what's called episodic accretion. 1/n Image
Episodic accretion is a process where stars accrete via a disk from a more spherically distributed envelope which adds mass to the disk & makes it unstable on an irregular basis. Such instability dumps extra material onto the star & accretion rate & luminosity increase. 2/n
Indian astronomers from the @ARIESNainital as part of an international team, including from @TIFRScience and @IIABengaluru have discovered “Gaia 20eae”, the latest member of episodically accreting young stars, according to @IndiaDST . 3/n

Is anyone keeping track of how many Apologies have been given to #FirstNations #Indigenous peoples in Canada?

Or more importantly..changes that have come as a measure of amends for acknowledged wrongs commensurate with the level of harm for what’s being apologised for?
I understand that the #Indian #ResidentialSchools were but one component of the overall Xanadian Gov strategy to remove #FirstNations from their Traditional Territories for the use & benefit of settlers & exclude FN’s from any benefit of wealth generated
This exclusion is successfully being perpetuated today by the Crown Govts of Canada

PM’s Harper & Trudeau have apologised for what has happened like it was from a far off long ago era

#ResidentialSchools amends must far more than “Healing” but include the political dynamic

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

1/ #Indian students trying to leave #Ukraine at the Ukraine - Poland border are getting a beating from Ukrainian police and are not allowed to leave

Not clear why. This is already all over the news in #India

Another video in the second tweet below.
2/ Second video

#Indian students trying to leave #Ukraine at the Ukraine - Poland border are getting a beating from Ukrainian police and are not allowed to leave.

3/ Those students are now saying that in addition to the beatings, they are being insulted, etc because #India didn't support measures against #Russia at the #UN

India’s neutral stand is a complicated high-table politics that has no bearing on those students.

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/
