The story of Akenya, the family cow.

Thread... Image
A long time ago in the village of Buchenya, there lived a man and his wife.

The man was called Omuchenya, from the abachenya clan while his wife was called Nabakolwe from the abakolwe clan.

They lived in a simple mud hut in their farm.

#StoryTime Image
They met in a traditional harvest ceremony where their love simmered like food boiling in an African pot.

Their families and clans approved of their marriage and gave them the green light to get married.

Gajendra Mokhsa - A Story to learn from the BHAGWAD PURAANA.
Bhagwad Puraana, tells about a beautiful Mountain called TRIKUTA. It had three peaks of Iron, Silver and Gold. It was massive at base and majestic at height.

On the foothills of TRIKUTA, lived a herd of Elephants under the strong leadership of Elephant King GAJENDRA.
He ruled the hills for many decades. He was so strong that when he walked he would sway his Trunk to destroy everything that came his way.

He enjoyed his strength so much that he was oblivious to the terror he struck in the hearts of other animals.

I was at a theatre watching a film. Loved the film and we (me and elder bro) left in an auto. Aged Auto driver took us in and a ride of 11 kms and lots of learning began.
He started to ask us about the film. We told him about it. He told many things about Bengaluru and the Kannada Film craze here. However, conversation took a interesting turn, when I asked him his age.
Not to offend him, I called him Tatha (Grandpa). Because he was old and had white hair. His hands bore skin with many wrinkles of old age and years of life experience.

He said, one should not ask about age and one should not tell his age too.

Today lets learn something about "Baherji Naik" (Head of Intelligence Department of Chattapati Shivaji Maharajs Army). In Marathi his department was called as "Guptaher Khaata", which loosely translates to Intelligence Department.
Bahirji Naik was a PILLAR of a strong intelligence network (possibly the best of that time) working for Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Around 3000 Soldiers (Mavlas) worked in this Intelligence unit and Bahirji Naik was head of all.
Without the contribution of this "Guptaher KHaata", the long standing dream of SWARAJYA would not have been achieved. Bahirji Naik, was the foundation of every war strategy prepared by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj.

Once long ago there were three friends. They were very poor and lived and a very small village. The land in the village was infertile and there was no work to do. One day these friends decided to go to a big city and find some work there.
So, one early morning they packed their bags and left for the city. They had no money, so they decided to walk to the city. It was the month of May when the summer is at its peak in India.
By noon all their water and food were finished so they decided to take a short break and rest under the shadow of a tree in the nearby forest. They were hungry and thirsty but there was no food or water left.

I cannot wrap my head around the sheer scale of anything TATA! We got access to the beta version of the TataNeu Super App. Anand & I have been waiting to buy a new TV for ages. Still running on one we picked up at Frys or BestBuy in Portland or something 12 yrs ago. #storytime
Full disclosure. I work with them professionally. But this is the frustrated 'am I ever going to care enough to buy a TV' customer tweeting. Downloaded the app, entered phone # What happened next was MAGIC. Something all of us read in data threads & inspiring keynotes everywhere
... but here it was, just like that, in an app

Chose the TV we wanted. It pulled up our rewards from our Taj stays, our Big Basket buys, our TataCliq purchases & boom ... close to 10K in discount instantly. We didn't do a damn thing. Just like that.

Google — a money-losing business — until it borrowed and reimagined an idea from its biggest rival.

👇An interesting thread 🧵
2/ The idea that made Google the world’s greatest search engine was all Page & Brin.

But the idea that turned Google into the world’s greatest company wasn’t theirs originally.

It was borrowed, with some key changes from their biggest early rival
3/ In their seminal 1998 academic paper introducing the idea of Google, Page and Brin criticized advertising-funded search engines as

“inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of consumers.”

Once in a formal meeting in heaven organized by Lord Indra; Rishi Durwasa was participating. Whilst everyone was engrossed and immersed in an intense brainstorming; Punjiksthali; a celestial nymph was unconsciously moving to-and-fro between the meeting.
Rishi Durvasa, renowned for his anger, warned her by asking her not to do so, however, Punjiksthali, simply ignored his request and continued with her movement, enraging the saint.
Durvasa cursed her, stating - "You have been acting like a monkey, hopping from here to there just like a mischievous monkey; better become one yourself."

Lachit Borphukan, Forgotten HERO of ASSAM.

#ASSAM, with its roots in the word Asama or invincible, denotes how this land held its own, through Indian history. Ruled by the powerful Ahoms for 600 years from the mid 13th century, the Mughals couldn’t touch Assam.
The year was 1671 and the decisive #BattleofSaraighat was fought on the raging waters of the Brahmaputra.
On one side was Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb’s army headed by Ram Singh of Amer (Jaipur) and on the other was the Ahom General Lachit Borphukan
To understand the story of #LachitBorphukan’s triumph over the Mughals, it is important to get some context of the history, geography and politics of Assam. The kingdom of Assam comprised of a stretch of land 600 miles wide, along the banks of Brahmaputra river.

Me llegó un paciente #COVID19 al cual se le realizó estudio genomico y resultó ser #VarianteDelta.

Pero lo que llama la atención es que YA ESTABA VACUNADO‼️

Se terminó intubando 😰🤭😱

Abro hilo 🧵para contarles qué pasó
Pero primero:

¿Qué son las variantes? 🧐

🦠 Los virus ARN por lo regular comenten errores al replicarse 🧬

Tras esos errores ❌ surgen otras variantes del mismo virus.
De los infinitos cambios que ocurren en #SARSCoV2, los más preocupantes son los que afectan al gen vinculado a la #proteínaS, que es la que se une a la célula humana y permite infectarla.

La proteína S es el objetivo de las vacunas y si cambia puede bajar su efectividad

One day Krishna and Arjuna were taking their usual walk, when they came across an old Brahmin begging, taking pity on his condition, Arjuna gave him a bag of gold coins. The man was overjoyed and went home. On his way he was robbed by a thief in the forest.
He cursed his fate and the next day set off to beg again. Arjuna and Krishna saw again & when Arjuna got to know of his story, once again took pity and gave him a large diamond. The man took it home & kept it in an old pot that had been unused for many years in order to keep...
it safe and went to sleep.
The next morning before he could wake up, his wife went to fetch water from the river and on her way back, she slipped and her pot broke.
She immediately remembered the pot at home which lay unused and brought it to fill it with water.

एक छोटीशी गोष्ट : #StoryTime

एकदा एक मुलगी त्रासलेल्या स्वरात तिच्या वडिलांना म्हणाली, "बाबा, माझं आयुष्य खूपच किचकट होत चाललंय कोणतीच गोष्ट मनाप्रमाणे होत नाही, प्रत्येक वेळी स्पर्धा आणि संघर्ष करून मी कंटाळली आहे, एक समस्या सोडवली कि दुसरी जणू वाटच बघत काय करू..
काहीच समजत नाही. असं वाटतं कि पूर्ण जग वेगळ्याच दिशेने जात आहे"

तिचे वडील एक आचारी होते, आपल्या मुलीच्या मनातील गुंता त्यांनी समजून घेतला काहीही न बोलता ते तिला किचन मध्ये घेऊन गेले त्यांनी तीन भांडी घेतली आणि त्यात पाणी ओतले आणि शेगडी पेटवून त्यावर ठेवली, पाणी थोडं ..
गरम होताच त्यांनी एका भांड्यात बटाटे, दुसऱ्यात अंडी आणि तिसऱ्यात कॉफी चे दाणे सोडले. वडील नक्की काय करतायत हे त्या मुलीला कळेना पण काहीही न बोलता ती बघत राहिली. २०-२५ मिनिटे अशीच शांततेत गेली आणि वडिलांनी गॅस बर्नर बंद केला.

त्यानंतर त्यांनी बटाटे आणि अंडी ..

¡Samuel García nos censura por medio de Badabun! #StoryTime

No es la primera vez que el candidato y la empresa Badabun atacan a medios de comunicación, y tampoco es la primera vez que nos atacan a nosotros, esta vez, reclamando falsos derechos de autor

Abro hilo:
Recibí una notificación de Facebook advirtiéndome que Badabun ¡había bloqueado mi video por supuestos derechos de autor! estamos hablando que una compañía, ya famosa por atacar periodistas y creadores de contenido, me esta intentado censurar alegando que mi video le pertenece
Al entrar a su queja, veo que la empresa Badabun dice que mi video tiene una coincidencia de 11 segundos con UN VIDEO QUE ES DE SU PROPIEDAD y al reproducir la "parte coincidente" noto que los fragmentos que reclamo como suyos son estos dos:

Lazy Saturday. Cup of tea. You know what that means, Twitter. #Storytime.
New folk, if you're new to this: #Storytime; in which I write a story, freestyle, on Twitter. Some pay attention; others unfollow. And it always starts with these words:
There once was a man who longed to be King. He had no qualifications, except in that he was a man of privilege, wealth and connections, and he was only one among many with their eyes on the throne, and not the most deserving. #Storytime

Jallianwala Bagh Massacre

The Rowlatt Act (Black Act) was passed on March 10, 1919, authorizing the govt to imprison or confine, without a trial, any person associated with seditious activities. This led to nationwide unrest.
Gandhi initiated Satyagraha to protest against the Rowlatt Act.

On April 7, 1919, Gandhi published an article called Satyagrahi, describing ways to oppose the Rowlatt Act.
The British authorities discussed amongst themselves the actions to be taken against Gandhi and any other leaders who were participating in the Satyagraha.

Orders were issued to prohibit Gandhi from entering Punjab and to arrest him if he disobeyed the orders.

In the late 90s, at a dank Ganpati Pooja celebration in Nagpur, people were sitting around all tensed up. The veriety entertainment night was stopped abruptly.

One person had just come running to the venue and screamed, "Chaddi Banyan Gang is coming!"
For us kids, this was terrifying. I mean sure we made fun of "Chaddi Baniyan" gang. That they rob people in their underwear, because wtf lol.

But on this night, the fear was very real. Soon, a colony-president-type uncle screamed, "TURN OFF THE LIGHTS!"

We cowered in that dark venue, only the diya in front of the Ganpati murti was visible. Some uncles and auntys crawled to the idol and started doing a silent aarti.

One of my friends had a genius idea: "Let's find this gang! I was to see if they really wear only chaddi-baniyan."

Recently E Sreedharan Sir @TheMetromanS shared a piece of Nostalgia. In the year 1964, a huge cyclone rampaged Pampan Bridge. It was E Sreedharan Sir & his team, who rebuild that Bridge. A Project that explains the simple brilliance of the Padma Shri E Sreedharan.
On the night of 23rd Dec 1964, there was a huge cyclone - waves rose to the heights of 30-40 metres. One of such huge waves swept away the century-old Pampan Bridge.

Incidentally, Pampan-Dhanushkodi Passenger train No.653 was running on that bridge on that day.
With the Bridge, that Train was washed away too. Nobody on that train survived.

The Bridge was very important for the connectivity of that region. Especially Rameshwaram. A Hindu Holy Abode.

Railways summoned, E Sreedharan Sir.
