At Lucknow food stall @hunarhaat BKC Mumbai, guy on the counter very proudly bragged to me repeatedly,
“मैं शुजा उद दौला की 14वीं पीढ़ी हूँ, लखनऊ नाम उन्होंने ही दिया लक्ष्मणपुरी से बदल के”
An average muzlim still believes Hindus are his subjects!
Realize yet,what we are in for?
Says @naqvimukhtar , @hunarhaat provides employment to craftsmen & traditional culinary experts- indeed to Shuja-ud-Daula’s descendent (from 1000th concubine)😅
Don’t believe me?

Hunar Haat exhibitions are organised under the USTTAD scheme of the Ministry of Minority Affairs.
Hindus, you’ve given no Art, No Handicraft to your country, the credit of all HUNAR in Bharat goes to Mughal aulaads, hence it needs promotion!
From the said 1,000 artisans, max’re M ‘traders’ from Saharanpur, Moradabad,Bhadohi,Khurja,few from Bhagalpur, fewer from Gujrat, M.P

Important #Thread

My visit to Qutub Minar, #Delhi in 2019. The whole place speaks volumes of temples that once stood there. It was thrilling to search & spot our Tirthankar carved on a pillar. The ceilings too clearly reveal the same architecture as in our #Jain temples
(1) ImageImageImageImage
Construction of Qutub Minar "victory tower" begun by Qutb-ud-din Aibak to mark his victory over Rajput Jains, was finally completed by Firoz Shah Tughlaq in 1368 AD. Apart from this, other structures include Quwwat ul-Islam Masjid, Alai Darwaza, Alai Minar & the Iron pillar
(2) ImageImageImage
Construction of the Quwwat ul-Islam masjid started in 1193 CE by Aibak. Acc to a Persian inscription on the inner eastern gateway, it was built with parts taken by destruction of 27 #Jain temples built during the reign of Tomaras & Prithviraj Chauhan.

#Rajasthan’s Congress Government has allowed terrorist organization that does radicalization of Muslim Youth for recruiting them in ISIS – Popular Front of India (#PFI), to organise a “Unity March” in Rajasthan’s Kota on 17 February (Thursday)
The march was organised on the occasion of the outfit’s foundation day in support of the students protesting against the hijab ban in educational institutions of #Karnataka.

Why is #Congress promoting the activities of a banned terror organization?
Is Congress doing this under pressure of PFI whose Islamic voter base in #Wayanad helped #RahulGandhi to win 2019 General Elections from Wayanad, after he foresaw his defeat in his once family turf and stronghold – #Amethi?

#Hindu #Funerary Monuments - Chhatri

Chhatri is a memorial chapel built over a #tomb found throughout the region of #Rajasthan, #MadhyaPradesh and #Maharashtra. These memorials commemorate the death of rulers, their consorts, relatives and the elite. 1/🧵
If Samadhis were funerary monuments of saints in #Hindus, Chhatris were #Rajput's choice of the memorial. They made sure that the memory of the chivalry of their ancestors passed on to the next generations. Though, all Chhatris did not necessarily contain the mortal remains. 2/
Chhatri i.e. umbrella, first appeared as a canopy above the tomb in #Islamic #architecture. #Hindu kings transformed the tomb into Chhatri. By the 16th C, Rajput courts had started building Chhatris. It was a place where a noble was cremated, memorialized and later worshipped. 3/

Given my love for #travel, thought I'd compile a thread of some of the best #tourism ads I've seen over the years

Am keeping it restricted to #PrintAds, and only those by #tourismboards, whether national, state or city

Hope you enjoy it 🙂🥂 and are inspired to travel
We could warm up with #Australia's 'So Where The Bloody Hell Are You' campaign, which turned a lot of heads thanks to it's choice of wording and, of course, the stunning visuals
Politeness can be over rated, eh @Australia 🖖🏾
As far as accidental tourism ads go, #Banff in #Canada capitalized on a squirrel photobombing a couple's pic and made him their mascot, even creating a Twitter id for the little fella and featuring him in a whole set of ads

Nicely done @banfflakelouise @Canada

Due to recent #internetshutdowns in Rajasthan, IFF filed RTI applications to find out what was going on behind the scenes❗️

Now, we have news. The 30 shutdown orders in 2021 (Jan-Sept; 645 hrs) follow an identical copy, cut, paste format! #KeepItOn 🧵 1/6…
All the internet shutdown orders issued by the Jaipur Divisional Commissioner were identical:

a. Bureaucrat recommends an internet shutdown citing ‘law and order’ concerns.
b. DC expresses satisfaction with the recommendation without reason.
c. DC suspends internet services. 2/6
Protest = Internet Shutdown

Out of 30 shutdown orders, 25 were issued during protests by the Gujjar community demanding reservations in ongoing recruitments & backlog vacancies, as well for the inclusion of a State reservation law in the Ninth Schedule of the Constitution. 3/6

REVEALED: The #Rajasthan govt. ordered internet shutdowns for petty reasons like “preventing cheating” in exams! IFF filed RTIs with the state's divisional commissioners (responsible for #internetshutdowns) to investigate compliance with #AnuradhaBhasin directions. #KeepItOn 1/4
IFF received a response from the #Udaipur Divisional Commissioner, stating their office has issued ❗️26 different #internetshutdown orders❗️ since the decision of the Supreme Court of India in #AnuradhaBhasin. 2/4…
According to the #AnuradhaBhasin directions, governments can only issue an order to shutdown the #internet if it is “necessary” and “unavoidable”.

Were these shutdowns necessary and unavoidable? See for yourself! 📲 #KeepItOn 3/4

India's richest person from whom the #British & #Mughals used to borrow money. Before British rule, our country used to be 'Sone ki Chidiya' due to our rich kings & princely states whose treasuries were full. There was no poverty.
There were such people in India in the 17th-18th century to whom the Mughals & British Empire kept bowing their heads for money. One such household was the 'Jagat Seth' Gharana of Murshidabad, #Bengal. They were originally from #Rajasthan
Jagat Seth was a title given to Fatehchand ji in 1723 AD by Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah. Since then this entire gharana became famous as 'Jagat Seth'. It was considered to be the richest banker's house of those times.

On #WorldTourismDay let me tell you about my favourite place on this planet - the area of the three lakes in Ranthambhore national park. It’s a stunning place. I will take a few minutes of your time but it may brighten up your day. 🙏
#ThePhotoHour Image
The overall backdrop is stunning because of a plus 1000 years old UNESCO World Heritage site Hill fort from which the park gets it name. It’s just too imposing. #Rajasthan Image
There are lots of pretty places but few where our countries glorious ancient past mixes with raw nature is such a mind blowing manner. Hundreds of years ago people actually prayed in this mosque. Monuments here are a classic mix of Rajput and Mughal architecture #IncredibleIndia Image

Benford's Law is very popular in catching up the wrongdoings in the numbers or finding the anomalies in the numbers.

Many developed countries used Benford's Law to find data fudging in Taxes, social media fake profile detection, finding digital frauds etc.


But did anyone try to run Benford's Law on the #Covid19 numbers of Indian States ?

I am not sure, but I tried to put these numbers together which i have collected online from various open-source sources. These are the combined numbers of 1st and 2nd wave.


I am not claiming if these numbers are real, because I have collected these numbers form open sources over internet.
Also, I am not claiming if #BenfordLaw is most accurate in finding the fraud.

I am just sharing the outcome of Benford's law.

#FactCheck of various "Propaganda Cartoons".

Inflation - Average 4.74% from 2014-2020, lowest in last 6 decades.

Unemployment - Yes, it increased because of Delhi - 45.6%, TN - 28%, Rajasthan - 27.6%.

GDP - India's GDP is low but performance under NDA is still better than UPA.
Supreme Court questioned Modi govt on Vaccine supply & differential pricing and its Ok. Point to be noted that it was States who asked for Decentralization of Vaccines. Supreme Court didn't ordered to Modi government to provide FREE Vaccines to States, but Modi did.
Several propaganda cartoons blaming Modi for Covid-19 situation floating around. 'Health' is States subject in India. fact remains, India has registered lowest Covid-19 De∆ths amongst major countries. De∆th rate in non-BJP States are highest, but entire blame is on Modi.
