My piece in @MongabayIndia on relocation from #Wayanad #Wildlife Sanctuary based on my @MPhilCL @Cambridge_Uni research supervised by @EliaApos Ialso drew on my yrs of experience.Resettlement from #ProtectedAreas (PA) is contentious @csandbrook 1/22
bit.ly/3bjo3V7
& I discuss a largely ignored narrative:of people seeking support for relocation.Historically,resettlements have been poorly recorded; there have been evictions from PAs that have led to penury, isolation, further impoverishment, which I strongly condemn.There is NO room 2/22
for forced,induced,unjust resettlement. However,it is troubling that resettlement discourse has ignored the narrative of people voluntarily seeking to move out of PAs where they face immense hardship due to lack of access to education,healthcare, markets,roads,jobs,business

Thread on Kerala Rains during September. #Kerala #KeralaRains

Short version: Not easy to predict as August, yet excess September on cards, many days of heavy rains possible, but disastrous rainfall unlikely(10% probability only)
2/n.. Rains will return slowly by Aug 31, by Sept 2 Kerala will be back to full-fledged monsoon mode. By Sept 6, Rainfall will increase heavily in ghats. I expect Rains to continue till 22-25th September with small breaks.

However, the biggest elephant in the room is cyclone..
3/n There is a good possibility of formation of cyclone in both Arabian Sea and Bay of Bengal. Kerala rainfall will depend a lot on formation of these cyclones. THese cyclones are tougher to predict, that's why i said September is more tough to predict.

And unlike what u think..

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

why #Kerala State is called "God's Own Country"?
Younger generation will not know & older generation might have forgotten the #History behind this.
When #India got Independence on 15th August 1947, the #travancore Kingdom didn’t join the Indian Union Govt.
2. Diwan of Trivancore #Kingdom announced in June, 1947 that the Trivancore Kingdom will be a separate country by itself.
During that period, the Trivancore Kingdom was well developed with Public Transport, Telephone Network, and Heavy Engineering Industries. The King took over
3. all the expenses of the University. Above all, all Hindus were allowed to enter into all the #Temples, without any bias on the caste, which was prevalent throughout India that point in time. When the talks were on between the Indian representatives & King Chithirai Thirunal

So, The Malabar Massacre of Hindus, will be whitewashed as a Revolution?
#Hindus of #Kerala, are we going to let the murder of our ancestors be ridiculed like this?
This movie will be the biggest insult to our innocent ancestors, who were killed, raped!

So a known Hinduphobic filmmaker & card carrying member of Communist Party plans to celebrate 100 years of the brutal Massacre of Hindus in Malabar!?

Not surprised. His party's key ideology is elimination through violence!

#MalabarHinduMassacre1921

What is shocking is Prithviraj Sukumaran, agreeing to play the role of Chief Instigator of the massacre!
This Actor who takes pride in being well read, disappoints with his ignorance of this brutality!

Some important, but valid questions arise as I reflect upon the protests that happened in opposition to #CAA all over the country. Collating my thoughts as a thread and sharing it. The questions are open for anyone to answer. (1/N)
@sakthi_ind93 @Swamy39 @MaridhasAnswers
The #CAA guarantees to instantly provide Citizenship to all persecuted minorities from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Bangladesh, who entered India before 31st Dec, 2014. There are 30K+ such immediate beneficiaries who will now be granted Indian Citizenship. (2/N)
Now, questions are raised by few senior MPs and politicians about why Muslims have been excluded. Obvious reasons include:

1. Out of the 30k people who are awaiting Indian #citizenship for many years, there are Hindus, Sikhs, Parsi, Jain, Buddhist and Christians. (3/N)

Nalambala Yatra, an annual pilgrimage to four well-known temples in #Kerala during Karkkidakam (Jul 16-Aug 17).
1. Triprayar Sree Ramaswami Temple
2. Irinjalakkuda Koodalmanikyam Temple
3. Moozhikkulam Lakshmana Perumal Temple
4.Payammal Shathrughna Swami Temple @poetryinstone
These temples are dedicated to Shri Rama, Bharatha, Lakshmana and Shathrughna respectively, the yatra to four temples should be completed on a single day to attain full benefits. The malayalam month of Karkkidakam is that it is period of famine and illness.
In order to overcome sufferings people resort to medical treatment and spiritual enrichment. To get rid of the difficulties of this month, people of Thrissur region started the Nalambalam pilgrimage centuries ago.

This thread clarifies the situation re #ElephantDeathCase #Kerala. Also, let's use this opportunity to reflect on the situation of #wildlife in #India today
1. People did not "feed" the elephant with cracker stuffed pineapple.
2. The elephant ate the bait laid to kill wild boars.
3. 1000s of wild boars are killed every year in a similar fashion.
4. Some don't die immediately, they suffer for a few days without a face or mouth to eat.
5. This kind of baiting needs to stop.
6. Wild boar lives matter too.
7. End #cruelty towards all #animals #nonhumans.
8. It didn't happen in Malappuram.
9. Why does religion need to come into the picture?
10. #BlackLivesMatter, but please also stand up for those marginalised in #India too (#DalitLivesMatter #MinorityLivesMatter).
11. Try to understand the problem & suggest a solution #Nonhumans

Sir, it was in Palakkad not Mallapuram.
And why the Indian culture remarks? #Kerala #keralaelephant
Let's not forget Mr Javadekar had defended the culling of animals like nilgai, wild boar. Supported by farmers-
Javadekar, who held the post of Minister for Environment defended animal culling, insisting it is done on the request of states to protect crops
oneindia.com/india/nilgai-m…
End of the day we have a huge problem between farmers and animals that destroy their crop. Needs a solution so farmers don't resort to firecrackers & tragic #elephant deaths like in Kerala. Mr Javadekar had supported culling of nilgai etc because of this

How far has the Panchayati Raj system helped Kerala?

****Long Thread on #PoolTesting****

This is the time for India to increase the ratio of #Pool tests.

The number of #COVID19 cases in #India has seen a constant rise over the past two weeks. This has been concerning considering that most cities are gradually coming out...
...of the lockdown. Domestic flights have resumed operations and soon, we may see other relaxations coming into effect. Offices and factories are opening up across states and this may certainly lead to a new wave of cases being identified.
#COVID19India #PoolTesting
As of the morning of 27th May, the top four infected states in India, which are Maharashtra, Tamilnadu, Gujarat & Delhi amount to around 67% of the total cases recorded in India. But, the concern has also been the rising number of cases in states that were very much in control...

After today's press conference, it's pretty clear why #Kerala govt raised objections regarding Shramik trains from Mumbai. (Thane-Ernakulam train on 24 May was cancelled)

But the ones who actually created this issue are the Malayali organizations in #Mumbai
These people were collecting names via Google form. The issue is, the messages did not have Jagratha portal link. No mention of compulsory e-pass. And these messages were forwarded even on the day of journey.
So, many passengers reached railway station without registering on the website. They thought that filling the Google form is enough. (This happened even on May 22, when the first Mumbai-Kerala train left LTT.)

Here's a message I received on 24 May.

With an additional 6,088 cases in last 24 hours, #India's #CoronaVirus epidemic seems to be gaining in strength rather than weakening. The growth in last 28 days is a 5-fold increase, equiavlent to a CDGR - Compound daily growth rate of 5.9% per day. It is out of control.
India's epidemic is growing faster that most of the other countries with a large number of cases.
It is an average growth rate. It includes states that are doing extremely well - e.g. #Kerala, some that have very few cases, and some large States where it is growing briskly (#MAH and #GUJ).
Conclusion: India wasted it's early Lockdown.
