Travelling through #India you can't miss such boulder heaps...

Think of Hampi's ruins (below) or Sravanabelagola (Karnataka), or Mt Abu (Rajasthan)?

#DidYouKnow, such isolated hill/ridge features that jut out from the surrounding plains are called #inselbergs?

#Geo thread/ Geology: inselberg formation at Hampi, Karnataka, India
Derived from German words meaning 'island mountain', #inselbergs are residual features that form across climatic zones.

Yet are most abundant in tropical regions with granite-gneiss outcrops, like those on the cratons across India, as also in the zones marked BCG, CGC, and SGT. Map in the publication, The Indian Peninsula: Geomorphic Lan
Debates rage on how #inselbergs formed, yet most concede they are the result of weathering (breaking down of rocks at site) and erosion (transport of weathered material).

A beautiful scene that belies the lack of modern High calibre #artilleryguns in the #IndianArmy & serves as a reminder that 21 years after the Field #artillery Rationalization plan was drafed to remedy deficiencies exposed during #Kargil they remain diminished.
Thread below
The FARP projection envisaged the acquisition of around 3000 #artillery pieces which were subdivided into 814 truck-mounted guns, 1,580 towed guns, 100 tracked self-propelled guns, 180 wheeled self-propelled guns and 145 ultra-light howitzers.
Some 2819 guns in all.
Out of this projected requirement only the requirement for ULWH ( Ultra light weight howitzers has been addressed with the ongoing acquisition of 145 @BAESystemsInc @MahindraRise M777 155/39 guns.
There is some chatter on an additional 290 gun requirement that remains open.

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

Who hates #Hindus so much to kill #Sadhus & steal the gold ornaments of #Temple ?

It was #lockdown & how did 200 people gather on the highway?

#Sadhus were going to #Rajasthan to attend a funeral & they were stopped by the mob and they pelted the stones & toppled their vehicle.
A forest guard called the police & then the whole battalion of police came
It was not just 1 or 2 police who were there.

There was whole police battalion & still they handed over the Sadhus to lynch mob & watched them die a brutal death.
Then it took 2 days for the police to take action as initially they tried to push it off as news of some villagers who caught thieves and killed them.

Indian express published it as 3 thieves beaten to death by villagers in Palghar dist of #Maharashtra.

The National Crime Records Bureau (#NCRB) published the annual Crime in India Report 2018 recently. #DALITWOMENFIGHT's @elite_dalit and @_senpai_i explains what it says about crime and #atrocities against #DalitWomen and children. #TalkCaste #SCSTPOA
As per the NCRB data 2018, the total number of crimes and atrocities reported against the Scheduled Caste is 42793. In these 42793 cases, the rate of filing of chargesheet is 81.3%, while the pendency rate is 27.5%. #DALITWOMENFIGHT #TalkCaste #NCRB #SCSTPOA
The high number of chargesheets being filed also negates the false notion that most of the cases filed are “fake” & out of “revenge”. It’s extremely important to remember that these are only those cases of atrocities which are reported.The actual number is much higher. #TalkCaste
