Natural History in Temple Building Stones.

Thread- Sedimentary depositional environments of Neoproterozoic age (900-800 million yr old) building stones of Aihole, Pattadakal and Badami temples, rock cut caves and sculptures.

Between ~1800 -800 million yrs ago, Indian continental crust sagged due to various tectonic forces to form several long lasting sedimentary basins. The Kaladgi Basin in which the Badami area sandstones were deposited is one such basin.

Much of this deposition took place in inland seas that flooded the Indian continent. During intervals of sea level fall, rivers carved valleys and deposited coarse sediment. The Badami Cave sandstones are river deposits of the Kaladgi Basin.

Perhaps the best example of #AmalgamationArchitecture and the cultural inclusiveness of #Hyderabad under the Nizam is #OsmaniaUniversity Arts College founded in 1918. It's the 1st Indian university to have Urdu (a modern language) as medium of instruction (as opposed to Persian).
Under the last Nizam, Osman Ali Pasha, #Hyderabad was thriving as a center of learning, innovation and technological advancement, free from the dark shadow of colonialism that gripped most of the Subcontinent. Hyderabad was quite insulated from India...
...and developed its own culture, architectural styles, cuisine, and most importantly, language. People from India were referred to as Hindustani and so was their language. The language of Hyderabad was Dakhani (of Deccan), which is very distinct from Hindi or Urdu...

Thread - India's flood plain issue:

There r so many flood incidents this year. One big problem s that we haven't mapped flood plains yet. Many crucial infra (road, railway) are built in flood plains with less care

Kabini Flood simulation shown here

FYI @PrinSciAdvGoI
In this case study, We would look at Nanjangud, a small town in the banks of #Kabini river in #Karnataka

Like #MahalaxmiExpress case, Kabini takes a sharp bend n a highway is present in flood plains

Map shows Kabini river's path near Nanjangud (flood sim. was done for this)
In August this year, Kabini flooded. This satellite image shows the area that was flooded. Black indicates water

Most of the flooded areas were farms

But two sections of the flooded areas have highways n builtup area in them (marked in red)

🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.

#Thread | Here's how climate-induced changes in plant behavior are hurting local economies across India.

1⃣ In #Uttarakhand, increasingly warmer winters are making #Rhododendrons bloom earlier than usual; during February-March instead of its usual schedule of March-May.

The season is not the best time for #Rhododendrons, because late winter rains in February-March wash away the blooms, affecting local population dependent on making juice, jams and jellies from the flowers.

@ani7709 Nagpur - BJP

Although there may not be lead as much as last time for BJP, BJP is in comfortable position to win this seat.

Nana Patole uplifted spirit of INC cadre as he fought against heavyweight minister Gadkari. Gadkari couldn't move out of Nagpur for a while in this phase.
@ani7709 Bhandara-Gondiya - BJP

A neck to neck contest. BJP put a good fight in by poll held previously. Due to Nana Patole moved to Nagpur to contest, BJP somewhat got a relief to make this seat workout.
Both BJP & NCP put fresh candidates. It is going to be a cadre vs cadre fight.
@ani7709 Gadchiroli-Chimur - BJP
No any other CM has visited Gadchiroli as much as Devendra Fadnavis did. Development work has put edge to BJP in this seat.

೨. ಕರ್ನಾಟಕ ಕಟ್ಟುವ ತೆರಿಗೆ ಹಣ ಮತ್ತೆ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕಕ್ಕೆ ಸಿಗುವ ಕಟ್ಟಳೆ ದೊರೆಯಬೇಕು. ಬೇರೆಯವರಿಗೆ ನೆರವು ನೀಡುವುದು ತಪ್ಪಲ್ಲ ಆದರೆ ಅಂತಹ ತೀರ್ಮಾನ ಕರ್ನಾಟಕಕ್ಕೆ ಬಿಡಬೇಕು.
೩. ಜಂಟಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ವಿಷಯಗಳು ರಾಜ್ಯ ಪಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ಸೇರುವುದು. ಜಂಟಿ ಪಟ್ಟಿ ಬೇಡವೇ ಬೇಡ. ರಾಜ್ಯಗಳಿಗೆ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಹಿಡಿತ ದೊರೆಯಲಿ.
೪. ಬ್ಯಾಂಕಿಂಗ್ ಕೆಲಸಗಳಿಗೆ ರಾಜ್ಯದ ನುಡಿ ತಿಳಿವಳಿಕೆ ಕಡ್ಡಾಯವೆಂಬ ಕಟ್ಟಳೆ ಮತ್ತೆ ಜಾರಿಗೆ ತರುವುದು. ಐ.ಪಿ.ಬಿ.ಎಸ್ ಆಯ್ಕೆನಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ ಕಟ್ಟಳೆ ಇದು.
೫. ಕನ್ನಡ ಜೊತೆ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಎಂಟನೆ ಪರಿಚ್ಛೇದದ ನುಡಿಗಳು ಕೂಡಲೇ ಕೇಂದ್ರ ಆಡಳಿತ ನುಡಿಗಳಾಗುವುದು. ಸಂವಿಧಾನದ ೩೪೩ನೆಯ ವಿಧಿ ತಿದ್ದುಪಡಿ.
೬. ಇದರ ಜೊತೆ ಸಂವಿಧಾನದ ೩೪೩-೩೫೧ ವಿಧಿಗಳ ಮರುನೋಟ ಮತ್ತು ಅವುಗಳ ಸರಿಯಾದ ತಿದ್ದುಪಡಿ ನಡೆಯಲಿ.
೭. ಕೇಂದ್ರ ಆಳ್ವಿಕೆಯ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಇಲಾಖೆಗಳ ಪ್ರವೇಶ ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆಗಳು ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ನಡೆಯುವುದು.

Now that Twitter has 280 character limit, and today being #PurandaraDasa #Aradhane, reposting my story of Purandara Dasa in verse form!

In here, there are no miracles happening in #Purandara's life, but the transformation very real.Story runs in 25 verses in mallikAmAla meter
I must tell that Prof SKR opines that Purandaradasa was more likely from a place called #Kshemapura in Karnataka, & not PurandaraGada in MH.

I trust people like #SKR more than anyone. So my #Purandara dasa story, begins in #Kshemapura, a town in the Malnad region of #Karnataka
ಕ್ಷೇಮಪುರದಲಿ^^ ಇದ್ದನೊಬ್ಬನು ಶ್ರೀನಿವಾಸನ ನಾಮದಿ
ಹೇಮದಾಭರಣಗಳ ಮಾಡುತ ಮಾರಿ ಗಳಿಸುತ ನೆಮ್ಮದಿ
ನಾಮಮಾತ್ರಕು ದಾನವೆಂಬುದನಾತ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪವು ನೀಡದೆ
ನೇಮದಿಂದಲಿ ದುಡ್ಡುಮಾಡುವ ದಾರಿಯೊಂದನೆ ಕಂಡನು || ೧||
