आपका भारत, आज का भारत

महाभारत के युद्ध में दो प्रमुख लोगों ने भाग नहीं लिया था। एक रुक्मी ने और दूसरे बलराम जी ने।

रुक्मी के अति अहंकार के कारण दोनों पक्षों ने मना कर दिया और बलराम जी अपने शिष्यों को आपस में लड़ने देना नहीं चाहते थे। पर कहीं से भी बलराम जी की निंदा नहीं (1/11)
हुयी। बलराम जी तटस्थ रहकर शौर्यशाली बने रहें।

जब युक्रेन पर रूस का आक्रमण शुरू हुआ तो क्या केवल भारतीय बच्चे कीव, कार्कोव, और सर्मी में थे? नहीं। अनेक देशों के लोग वहाँ पर थे। क्या भारत के केवल दो चार सौ लोग वहाँ थे? जी नहीं, यह संख्या 20 हज़ार से ज़्यादा थी।

युद्ध की (2/11)
शुरुआत होते ही आज के भारत ने क्या किया? भारत ने युद्ध की गति से ही ऑपरेशन गंगा #OperationGanga की घोषणा कर दी। देखने सुनने में बात यह साधारण लग सकती है पर युक्रेन पर मिशाइल का हमला होने लगा था, तोपें गोला बारूद उगल रहीं थीं और रूस युक्रेन के ऊपर महाशक्तियों तक के हवाई (3/11)

The reality behind #OperationGanga

Indian students fleeing #Ukraine were waiting on Romania border for over 30 hours in heavy snowfall & freezing weather

Amidst tall claims, PR and unleashing troll army upon news tweets/handles, Indian embassy was in shambles

Watch it yourself
2nd part of video.

Poor Indian students spent 30 plus hours in heavy snowfall without food & water, no shelter and no help from Indian Govt/embassy.

They were asked to clean toilets when the embassy finally evacuated and Indians on Twitter demanded why can’t they clean toilets
If you’re one of many who believe it’s Modi government bearing the cost of evacuation of these students then be enlightened UPA government had set up ICWF (Indian Community Welfare Fund) under MEA in 2009 with the sole purpose of helping distressed Indians overseas to bring home

We had a convo regarding the situation there and how they managed to escape from the war-zone.Writing this thread as per whatever,I heard from them.

Their Universities weren't offering them online classes and bunking offline classes meant a- (2/9)
penalty of 1500 Rs per class which the middle class couldn't afford. Neither the Indian Embassy was giving a clear instruction to leave Ukraine untill 1st March nor did they pressurise Unis to conduct online classes and allow the students to leave. (3/9)

#WATCH | Prime Minister Narendra Modi chairs another high-level meeting on Ukraine crisis

PM Modi reviewed the ongoing efforts under #OperationGanga to bring back Indians stranded in Ukraine during the meeting.

PM said that the entire government machinery is working round the clock to ensure that all Indians there are safe & secure: MEA Spox Arindam Bagchi
Prime Minister pointed that the visit of four senior ministers as his Special Envoys to various nations will energize the evacuation efforts. It is reflective of the priority the government attaches to this matter: MEA Spox Arindam Bagchi

While Modi govt is making all possible efforts to bring every Indian stuck in Ukraine, congress is busy in politicising the issue.

Be it Operation Rahat to Operation Maitri or the present #OperationGanga the uniqueness of Indian rescue operations has been manifold.
Firstly, it acted very swiftly, even when other nations were merely contemplating about it.

And secondly, it not only brought back Indians from the stressed lands, but also citizens from other countries.
This shows that the adage Vaisudeva Kutumbakam is not merely a philosophy, but an article of faith for us!
