Announcement from @fordnation sank my heart today. As an ER doctor, person of color and #Scarborough native, I feel defeated 😢. The measures are not going to get wave 3 under control. #BIPOC #ERdoc @SHNcares @torontolife @JustinTrudeau @SCMirror 1/
When I landed as an #immigrant in #Canada, my life started in #Scarborough. My parents (#heros) struggled to find jobs that matched their education. That didn't stop them from working hard / hustling even if it meant 2 jobs at times to keep bills paid and food on the table. 2/
My family lived in an apt building that had mostly racialized/middle-low income families (#affordability). Not much social distancing when large crowds wait for elevators (#EssentialWorkers) or use the shared laundry facilities. This pandemic brings back those vivid memories 3/

The Battle of #Longewala was one of the first major battles in the Western Sector during #IndoPakWar1971. #Longewala is 16 km from the IB in the Thar Desert in #Rajasthan & the lone road to #Jaisalmer via Ramgarh emanated from here. (1/n)
#IndianArmy Image
#Longewala was held by a platoon of 14 BSF. However due to the looming war clouds, 'A' Compony, 23 PUNJAB under Major Kuldeep Singh Chandpuri was deployed in Oct 71. The rest of 23 PUNJAB (part of 45 Infantry Brigade) was deployed at Sadhewala.(2/n)

1/ #Coinbase $COIN- The Big Cryptocurrency Revolution,
The world watches as the largest #cryptocurrency exchange is now set to go public on NASDAQ through #directlisting. With 56M users, the platform is bigger than its traditional counterparts (#Robinhood, #Venmo , etc).
2/ Opening New Doors for Investors
The day will be marked as a historical event in the books of #WallStreet as it bridges the gap between legacy investors and the #cryptomarket.
The quarterly results have already shown a surge of 847% i.e. $1.8B revenue
3/ Why is now the right time to go public?
This move takes advantage of the current market conditions.

The last two quarters have seen investments of $7B in #Bitcoin. Major companies like $TSLA and @elonmusk have also shown keen interest in Bitcoin & Crypto

#Vietnam launches second #Indian high-speed patrol boat

Vietnam launched a high-speed patrol boat built with Indian assistance & one more is in the pipeline.

The Vietnamese coast guard had inducted the first #India made patrol vessel in December 2020…
2) The launch stands out "as an icon of India-Vietnam defense partnership" and reflects India's commitment towards building the capacity of the Vietnamese military, says Pranay Verma, India's ambassador to Vietnam.
3) Vietnam is making full use of the $100-million line of credit extended by India in 2014 during the State visit of the Vietnamese PM to India. The two nations extended their relations to a “comprehensive strategic partnership” & have been cementing military ties since then.

Dear Indians

There's a group of people driving demand for lockdown, crackdown, mandatory jab, panic-mongering

These are Indian (origin) traitors at Foreign Gov/Uni/NGO/Global Health Org & their lackeys residing in 🇮🇳

They don't care about death & devastation caused by lockdown ImageImageImageImage
Why is a "Journalist", a former UK Foreign office operative, with links to US Think Tank—someone who is definitely well off—begging for "Strict Lockdown"?

Why is NO journalist asking these people why we are STILL using "modelling" when we have 13 months' worth of actual data? ImageImageImageImage
There are many such "Indians" with complete callous disregard for our country & our people pushing someone else's agenda

They peddle propaganda on media & drive how our people live/die

ALL of our mainstream & so-called independent media are complicit

The #1971IndoPakWar was the outcome of continuous atrocities & genocide by #Pakistan on the people of #Bangladesh. The genocide of 25 Mar 71, led to the birth of Mukti Bahini, which played a stellar role in the liberation of #Bangladesh. (1/n)

#Pakistan opted for war with #India instead of stopping genocide in #Bangladesh. On 3 Dec 1971 at 4.45 PM #Pakistan initiated the war with pre-emptive strikes at 12 #Indian airfields. (2/n)

#Web3.0: starting Jan 2009, 1000s of crypto programmers around the world created today’s world of #blockchains #bitcoins & #NFTs. It is finally taking off as car, computer & real estate companies start accepting bitcoins (&other crypto coins) for real goods. #Indian programmers
of course made millions of $$ in bitcoin when it was below $10. Today it is at $60,000 each. Since Crypto is a parallel universe w NO location in ANY country, it cannot legally be regulated by ANY “Govt”. Not even US. If anyone tries extort you, under any pretext, push back!
More importantly, please read the #NFTBible & get familiar w this space. You do not want to miss this boat even if your government is clueless about it.

#Chabahar port in #Iran, with #India's investment, is a strange story. President #Trump reluctantly excluded it from #US sanctions, and it is the only #Indian-run port #Pakistan signed a sister-city agreement with. Some interesting updates. /1
#Trump was not sympathetic to #India's case on sanctions waivers for #Chabahar & the crude oil imports from #Iran, but he relented on the port only after pressure from #US diplomats, who said even #Pakistan did not object to the #Indian-#Iranian port. /2…
Iran spent years convincing #China & #Pakistan not to develop #Gwadar, instead reroute the economic corridor #CPEC to #Chabahar citing better security in #Iran compared to #Pakistan & its #Balochistan province. A top Iranian diplomat explains this: /3

THE TRUTH OF QUTUB MINAR( DHRUV STAMBHA): An ancient #Vedic observatory ie another wonder of our Vedic #Astronomers & #Mathematicians.

#QutubMinar was the observation tower of an observatory set up by the noted astronomist Varah Mihir much before the birth of Islam.
It is estimated that this observatory was set up during 4th.-6th. Century AD.The observatory provided major research in the field of Astronomy and was the place where many calculations about the movement of planets and stars were performed and #Vedic theories were validated.
The Muslim invaders were never famous for creating the #historical monuments of scientific utility but they were out to wipe off the #History and #culture of places they invaded, including #India.Their only concern was to loot the wealth and destroy the culture.

#RamMandirNidhiSamarpan isn't just a "Donation Collection Campaign", it's a Nation Building Exercise, it is the culmination of years of struggle to proudly reclaim the Hindu Identity of #Bharatvarsh. To reignite the light of hope in every single #RamBhakt's heart.
10s of generations, spanning centuries together have eagerly awaited the restoration of Bhagwan Shri Ram to his rightful abode. The #RamMandirNirman thus is something absolutely near and dear to every #Indian, and everyone wants to be involved in it in one way or another.
While everyone would love to take part in the #RamMandirNirman directly, it isn't possible just yet. Precisely why people from every social strata are willingly & generously presenting whatever they can to their #RamLalla with pure devotion, who's given them everything.

.@ShivshankaMenon "Opinion in strategic community in India has turned increasingly negative on China & not just because of what happened on the border last summer or the situation right now. Several factors that have brought stress into the relationship." 3/n

Once we pass the matriculation exams, it's only by chance that we pick up history books to read. Often our knowledge of history as adults is only the knowledge given to us by our school books and teachers. What if someone chooses to manipulate it at that point!
Today it's a well-known fact that #Indian #history has not been written by #Indians. At best, they were brown sahibs instead of the white ones who choose what we would learn about our history & what we won't. Every few months some strange manipulation of history comes to light!
How about those #NCERT books? What would you say about the most trusted books that are often used by students preparing for #UPSC? Well, you know the answer, even if you choose not to state the fact in public. They are biased, aren't they?

The stand off between @Twitter and the #Indian government is symptomatic of a shrinking space for dissent. In an early response they temporarily blocked a respected news outlet and several voices of peasants, indigenous peoples and other classes of protected characteristics. 1/14
@Twitter Now Twitter has blocked a number of accounts from viewing in India, including that of a sitting member of parliament, after committing not to block politicians, activists and media. Political dissent and independent media need, primarily, to engage with their home audiences. 2/14
@Twitter Twitter needs to offer a neutral, level playing field for all political actors, with the same set of norms across markets, rather than faciliate repression of democratic dissent. In the US they de-platform a sitting President, and in #India they are open to bullying? 3/14
