I bow to the great son of #Karnataka Sir #MVisvesvaraya on his Jayanti.

The visionary engineer, scholar and statesman devoted his entire life to our nation, spearheading several transformational projects.

Sir MV was a strong proponent of industrialise or perish.

#EngineersDay
Sir MV transformed #Mysore:

Mysore Sandal Oil & Soap Factory

Bangalore Agricultural University

Mysore Chambers of Commerce

Bhadravati Iron & Steel Works

Kannada Literary Academy

Hebbal Agricultural School

State Bank of Mysore

Mysore University

KRS

When Sir MV was offered the position of Dewan of Mysore State, he summoned all his relatives and took a word from each one of them that she/he will not ask for any favour from him once he becomes Dewan.

Only after all of them agreed did he accept the position.

🪡@narendramodi will take part in the International Yoga Day show in #Mysore on June 21.

In a nation that buys ‘The Daily Spectacle’, this is just another dot in @PMOIndia’s diary.

But what goes into an event like this—for hashtags to trend for a few hours on Tuesday? #YogaDay
2️⃣ Modi doing #Yoga in #Mysuru is a big deal.

All three great gurus of the 20th century—T.Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois—grew under the patronage of the Maharajas of Mysore.

UN designated June 21 as #InternationalDayofYoga only after Modi became PM in 2014.
3️⃣ Still, a one-hour show led by the PM at Mysore Palace takes some doing.

Coverage in Mysore’s local dailies #StarOfMysore and #Andolana gives a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes.

It is a sobering lesson of how a partipatory democracy can be a made-for-TV spectacle.

DID YOU KNOW ?
Contribution of #Mysore Empire - #Thread.

Brithishers knew about #KGF (Kolar Gold Field). In the year 1802, John Warner learned about the presence of gold and demarked the area, allowing him to export a small amount of gold.
From 1881 through 1946, John Taylor & Company exported 10,000 kg of gold to the United Kingdom each year. That's almost 6,50,000 kg of gold from #Mysore State, which is now #Karnataka. Even at that time, #Karnataka was the largest tax-paying state.
Britishers robbed the whole wealth of Mysore State during the 4th Anglo Mysore War in 1799. Due to a lack of money, work on the Mysore Palace was halted for four years. Even Dussehra was not celebrated between 1800 and 1804.

The Madras and Southern Mahratta Railway (MSM) was formed in 1908 from the merger of the Madras Railway Company (MR) which operated a broad gauge (BG) system and the Southern Mahratta Railway(SMR) metre gauge (MG) system.
In 1943, MSM operated 1518 miles of Broad gauge track and 2087 miles of Metre gauge track across southern India.
Madras Railway Company (MR) was incorporated in 1845 for the purposes of building a 70 mile line between Madras and the military base at Arcot. In 1859, its mandate was expanded to Beypore, with branches to Bangalore, and via Bellary, to join the line from Bombay.

This is #Navaratri / #Dasara.

For long & even today, Dasara is synonymous with #Mysore. It is also the nADa-habba - the State Festival of Karnataka.

Dasara as the State Festival are a contribution of the #Wodeyar dynasty.

“May they prosper forever” - the Yadukula Santana.

+
Vijayadashami as a Festival has a very long history. Many classical texts trace it back to Mahabharata, although the Vyasa Bharata does not say anything. It, of course, goes back to Ramayana.

In the Classical era & subsequently in the preBritish references are galore.

+
The Vijayanagar Kings made Vijayadashami - Dasara a very big event, which is recorded by many travellers.

But its the Wodeyars alone who carried this festival to the Modern times. They transformed a cultural/religious event into a State/Civilizational Festival.

#Thread on Hyder Ali's legacy of Hindu persecution policy.

As people begin to grasp Tipu Sultan's anti-Hindu policies, this thread will make it evident that they were put in force by his father, Hyder Ali too.

#TipuSultan #HyderAli #Mysuru #Mysore #Hindutva #History
2.
Hyder Ali didn’t spare even girls of 4-5 years old, who were purchased on account of beauty to train them in music, dance and to give pleasure.
3.
1763: Hyder Ali fought with Rani of Bednur, Rani Virammaji. When people of Bednur heard about his attack, they fled to jungle. Hyder systematically looted Bednur. His loot was estimated 12 mn sterling.

Later he imprisoned the Rani.

Sir Mirza Ismail noted this in a report in 1930s that best illustrates the development in #Mysore under the Wodeyars.
What was more remarkable was Mysore's social interventions.

>Primary Education was made free and compulsory in 1913
>Introduced adult literacy programs long before it was conceptualised elsewhere
>Other firsts include mass smallpox vaccinations, girls hostels, agri banks
>In 1927, Mysore state was first in the country to start a Braille printing press
>First two birth control clinics in the world were set up by the Princely state of Mysore in 1930

A linga surrounded by 108 miniature lingas! Carved on rock on the banks of the Tungabhadra. Those who haven't been to #Hampi have missed the finest Indian heritage site of all. #Karnatakatrail. ImageImage

Contrary to popular belief, the Gulmohar is not a native species; it comes from Madagascar.
