#Kerala is indeed God’s own land! #கேரலா_கோவில்கள் மகாவிஷ்ணுவின் அவதாரமான பரசுராமனால் உருவாக்கப்பட்டது கேரளம். இன்று அங்கு பெரும்பான்மையினர் இஸ்லாமியர்களாக கிறுஸ்துவர்களாக மாறிவிட்ட போதும் அங்கிருக்கும் இந்துகள் வழிபாட்டு முறையும், கோவில்களில் இருக்கும் ஒழுங்கும், கோவிலின் உள்ளே
பக்தர்களின் ஒழுக்கமும், அர்ச்சகர்களின் சுத்தம், பூஜையில் ஒரு முக கவனமும் பிற மாநில இந்துகள் கற்றுக் கொள்ள வேண்டிய ஒன்று. அங்கே சிவ, விஷ்ணு பேதங்கள் இல்லை. மஹா தேவர் என்று அழைக்கப்படும் சிவ சன்னிதானத்தில் கூட சந்தனம் மட்டுமே பிரசாதம். ஒரே கோவிலில் சிவலிங்கம், மஹாவிஷ்ணு, பகவதி,
சர்ப்பக்காவுகள் தரிசனம் செய்யலாம்.
தெருவுக்கு ஒரு புதிய கோவில், அதற்கு ஒரு தர்மகர்த்தா குழு என்றெல்லாம் கிடையாது. கோவிலுக்குள் சாதி சண்டைகள், முதல் மரியாதை, பரிவட்டம் கட்டுதல் இல்லை. எந்த கோவிலிலும் கட்டண தரிசனம், விரைவு தரிசனம் கிடையாது. எல்லாமே பணம் கொடுக்காமல் கிடைக்கும்

🔴The curious case of Indian #Monkeypox Genomes
Wonderful effort by clinicians in @KeralaHealth who diagnosed the disease and researchers at @icmr_niv, we now have sequences of MPX isolates in @GISAID .

This short 🧵is on what the early genomes say.
Analysis @bani_jolly
Briefly 4⃣ genome sequences have been deposited for two samples (EPI_ISL_13953610 and EPI_ISL_13953611) along with 2 re-sequenced genomes from isolates of one of the sample.
▶️Both the isolates were from early cases reported from Kerala
▶️Both cases have a travel history
The present sustained human-human transmission of the MPX virus is believed to have happened via superspreader events in Europe with 16000+ cases now spread across 70+ countries,
The initial cases seemingly were predominantly among gays/bisexuals and msm networks

Millions of worshippers of lord Guruvayurappan are residing all over the country, donations to the deity cannot be utilized countrywide: Kerala High Court
#kerala #Temple #donations
Court dismissed State's review petition against its earlier judgment holding Rs. 5 crore donations from Guruvayoor Devaswom Funds to the Chief Minister's Distress Relief Fund illegal. State had argued that money was given for relief of lord's devotees across the country.
Court said that Section 27(c) of the Guruvayur Devaswom Act,1978 cannot be stretched to interpret that money devoted to the diety can be given for benefit of worshippers beyond a particular geographical limit.

#Thread #Kerala

Did u know this part of the history of #Kerala ?

It happened when the biggest and the most valuable company in the history of the world was brought down (among other things) by a royal Malayali from India.

1
There was a moment in history when the Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC) or simply the Dutch East India Company was the most well funded and powerful Business, military and naval force in the world.

2
Established in 1602, it had a virtual monopoly of the global spice trade for most of the 17th century and was the first truly multinational corporation in history.
It had a great run and was the Apple or Google of its day - only more successful, profitable-

#pinarayivijayan said he won't implement #CAA in #Kerala. Before him #MamataBanerjee said the same thing for #WestBengal. What these CMs are saying is not just rhetorical but meaningful. +
In all other cases of Citizenship by Registration and/or Naturalization, applicants have to liaise with MHA GOI via State DMs & the State Secretariat where it is possible for the State to sabotage & block applicants. +
CAA 2019 implementation must bypass the State Government offices. Else #WestBengal #Kerala such States would sabotage it. Rules need to be such that applicants don't at all need to go via State Secretariat. @AmitShahOffice +

There is an ancient temple in #Kerala, India made famous by thieves.

Four times in recent history, thieves stole the temple idol but returned it as they could not go far with it.

The reasons they gave, makes the story even more intriguing. Image
Mridanga Saileswari 🛕 is a temple at Muzhakunnu, Kannur district in the southern state of Kerala.

The 🛕 is among the 108 temples believed to have been established by Sage Parashuram. There is a story behind the temple getting the name “Mridanga Saileswari”.

Mridangam is a percussion instrument from India of ancient origin.

In ancient Hindu sculpture, mridangam is often depicted as the instrument of choice of Hindu deities like Ganesh & Nandi, the vehicle and follower of Shivji. Image

Is the #ShawarmaFoodPoisoning in Kerala, where a young girl lost her life and 3 others are critical and r being treated in the ICU of MIMS(owned by jihadies) a vicious and purposeful attack on our young ones by terror cells in #Kerala?
Of the 3 other kids, it is said that Image
the kidney of one has been affected and the heart of another.
Most of our ppl on the ground tell me that Goat hotels & juice bars are always full of Hindu girls.
Just a couple of months ago during utsavam(Hindu festival) in Malappuram…secular Hindus drank water melon Image
juice from a goat hotel/juice place. More than 100 of ppl suffered from food poisoning.

If all those Spit Sputtum videos being circulated won’t open your eyes …I don’t know what else will…

For those who are making fun of Kerala visiting Gujarat to study its e-governance dashboard, here is a fact check because I was one of the first to report it. Thread:
Gujarat E-Governance model was implemented during Keshubhai Patel's tenure as CM. Not Modi's. Though KP had little knowledge of technology, he was a master listener and doer. If it is good for our people, let's implement it was his motto.
During that time the entire space of e-governance stories went to the then Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu who became the CEO of a state with his vision of technology. But Andhra has connectivity till District level. It stole the limelight because Naidu was good at it.

The amount of hatred directed towards #Kerala on social medias from the other part of the country is astonishing. This could actually be dangerous for Malayalees who are living or travelling to the northern states in the coming years. (Contd)
I have been asked by a guy if Hindus were in danger in Kerala when I was in Himachal. He truly believed they were not. Repeat a lie thousand times and it becomes the truth. It is very clear why this #hatecampaign is there against Kerala.
While Kerala is far from a prefect place, we are proud about the achievements we had over the years. Whatever propaganda these people spread about Kerala, the Hindus, Christians, Muslims and others will be united and resist the communal hatred. #KeralaModel

Earlier this week, the government refused to renew the licence of Malayalam new channel, #MediaOne

The ban put the spotlight on the Union government’s ability to control what gets aired on television

How are the TV channels regulated? @UmangPod explains scroll.in/article/101643…
This isn’t the first time #MediaOne has run into trouble with the ruling dispensation.

In 2020, the news channel, along with Asianet News, was banned for 48 hours for its coverage of the riots in Delhi. @UmangPod writes
