I got this complete list with names, phone numbers and addresses of 51 women aged 10-50 years who, #Kerala govt claims, entered #Sabarimala temple Friday afternoon. Two points on this: a) Why is the state's @cpimspeak govt leaking such details to the local media?... 1/n
2/n: Shouldn't the government be held responsible for such an act? Whether these women are 10-50 yrs old or actually even visited the temple is still a secondary issue. Leaking such lists puts them/ their everyday lives in danger.
3/n: I randomly called 2 phone numbers on the #Sabarimala women list leaked by #Kerala govt. In both the cases the individuals claimed they were over 50 years. In one case, 59 yrs and 50+yrs in the other - when both of them were listed in 40-50 yr age group. #electionsarecoming

One person was killed in clashes. Schools are closed & public transport suspended.…
The #Sabarimala temple was historically closed to women of "menstruating age" - defined as between 10 and 50.
The Supreme Court revoked the ban in September. On Wednesday, Bindu Ammini, 40, and Kanaka Durga, 39, entered the shrine around dawn and became the first women to do so.

I’m reading. ##Christianity in #India #History

I am starting a thread on Mappila Riots which resulted in massacre of Hindu men, mass rape of women and destruction of Hindu temples in North #Kerala
These events have been erased from History by the Left.
MKGandhi :“My heart bleeds to think that Moplah brethren have gone mad, That they have looted Hindu homes leaving hundreds of men and women homeless. That they have forcibly converted Hindus to Islam and by all these acts they have done an injury.“-Sep 19, 1921 at Trichanapoly
MK Gandhi : “Hindus, instead of running away would have been truly non violent and added luster to their faith and won the friendship of their Mussalman assailants if they had stood bare breast with smiles on their lips and died at their post.”
-‘Young India’ May 29 , 1924

Do I have followers in #Kerala? I was shown so much hospitality when I was there. So many people opened their homes to me, shared meals with me. I'd like to contribute to the flood relief efforts.
But I'm not sure which organization is doing the best job of matching contributions to those most in need. Has anyone in Kerala seen, for example, one of these flood relief kits? Are they useful?… Is there a local organization you'd recommend more?
Perhaps you could recommend the best way, @TheKeralaPolice?

Thread: Some #Kerala stats. Just a glimpse of where it stands in rel to the rest, for those who are riling against its "netas". Kerala does not have the kind of indignity and poverty that mark several Indian states. Instead, it is often compared with developed countries. Why?
Bcoz Kerala is characterised by high literacy, incomes and expanded individual choices.

Its literacy rate is 93.91%, among the highest rates in India. Average schooling in Kerala is eight to nine years, against four in the rest of India.
In the realm of demographic transition, it will take the rest of India at least 30 years to catch up with its average demographic statistics.

1/ If you still have doubts about contributing to @CMOKerala's Relief Fund, please read this tread.

Here is why Chief Minister's Relief Fund is the most transparent way to make your donation. #LetKeralaLive
2/ The #Kerala Government has to show the account in the assembly.

@CMOKerala's Relief Fund is under direct monitoring of Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG).

3/ The fund is deposited in the bank account of Principal Secretary (Finance) Manoj Joshi IAS. Depositing and withdrawing the money can only be done through the bank account. Manoj Joshi can not personally operate the account, only financial secretary can.

Damn Dams!!

They created all hell in Kerala......

How many dams are there in Achecoil, Manimala & Meenachil which created havoc in Central Kerala?


How much yield of Pamba River is impounded in the dams there?

JUST 10.4%

Blame it on dams!!
Come to the Northern Kerala.....

There you have the Great Chaliyar River, which flows through Kozhikode and Malappuram Districts.

How many dams are there is this Chaliyar River basin other than some small weirs?

Blame it on dams..

Smart QN.

#KeralaFloods might hv an astral connection, as it is believed #Kerala d land of #vamana celebrates every yr #Onam around this time, Onam falls on d birth #constellation of vamana i.e #Shravana nakshtra in which we had d longest total lunar eclipse of this century on 27/28 July
Like at a personal level for one who is born or associated with shravana constellation or Nakshtra d #Eclipse affects individually similarly it affects a region in this case #kerala at a mundane level astrally on human affairs that runs across d southern belt of #westernghats
Also #Kerala is a land blessed by d #serpents & d reason for its fertility is directly related to d blessings bestowed by #Nagas on #Parasurama in a barren land infested with sea salt, hence not respecting d blessings by cutting down forests on large scale in d name of developmnt

While *most* South Asian Muslims use #Persian terms for religious concepts, Muslims in #TamilNadu & #Kerala (who trace their roots to Arab trading communities) have distinct traditions also reflected in their terminology, which freely draws from #Tamil/#Malayalam & #Sanskrit.
Instead of rozā, the #Persian term for Islamic fasting (itself a translation of #Arabic ṣawm) used in #Urdu, #Bengali, #Gujarati etc, #Tamil & #Malayalam speaking Muslims use nōmpu, lit. ceremonial fasting. The word is from a proto #Dravidian root meaning to do penance. #Ramadan
Sanskrit is used too. #Malayalam speaking Muslims commonly refer to #Ramzan as puṇya māsam, #Sanskrit for month of good merit. Nimskāram, the Malayalam counterpart of the #Persian namāz (Islamic prayer), is from #Sanskrit namaskāra (lit. prostratration, here, to a god). #Ramadan

India has seen the legendary U-Turns of Modi Govt in the last four years. Perhaps, even Modi is beaten in the U-turn game by @vijayanpinarayi in #Kerala, in just about one-third of the time.
#DoubleFaced #IrattaMukham #VijayakumarForChengannur
In this thread, let us look at the transformation of a so called ‘Double-hearted’ Govt, to a ‘Double-faced’ Govt through its numerous U-turns and actions reeking of double standards. #DoubleFaced #IrattaMukham #VijayakumarForChengannur
While the CM is vocal in his support for the farmers agitating in other states, Govt used Police force to defeat a farmer’s agitation against acquisition of farmlands and used Party goons to burn down a pandal set by the agitators in Keezhatoor! 3/  #DoubleFaced #IrattaMukham

#Kerala architects stood out in their mastery over wood sculpting. If you ask, why most of the temples in Kerala are not so architecturally minute in their making, the answer is: wood. Cheras largely worked with wood. This is the koothambalam of #haripad Subramanian temple.
Because the entire structure was made of wood most of the grand temples succumbed to fire accidents. It was easy for invaders to raze it too. But remnants of it exist only in a handful of temples. See this video. #haripadsubramanian temple.
