At the beginning of October, after I had gone to #Mysuru to walk awhile with the #BharatJodoYatra, I had pointed out how @RahulGandhi had chosen the difficult path, and by doing so, he had completely stumped the toxic media and propaganda machinery. 1/
It brings a lot of satisfaction today to find people gushing over @ravishndtv saying the same thing from the platform he occupies. #BharatJodoYatra is the difficult path, but it is drawing people out of their homes to connect with a leader who listens to them every day. 2/
The cheap jibes of the WhatsApp factories, the non-stop negativity and cynicism that has been unleashed on our people for so long now, has begun to look more and more ridiculous. #BharatJodoYatra positions love, acceptance, inclusion above hate and division. 3/

🪡@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.

#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
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.
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.
