Independent India has always been a vibrant democracy, except for the #Emergency years of #IndiraGandhi from 1975-77. That it has taken a decisive turn to religious majoritarianism under the #BJP and under #Modi since 2014 doesn't change that fact. (1/)
Democracy is not necessarily congruent with liberal values or even human rights. #Slavery was legal both in the democracy of Great Britain as well as the USA for almost a hundred years since the US' formation. Even a White woman was not considered equal to a man in America. (2/)
#Blacks in the #US did not have equal rights even after the abolition of slavery for another 100 years under #Lincoln, but we still think of the US in #1960 as a democracy.

Should you consider Machine Translation? Image
@rk_process9 #ChatGPT has generated more interest & debate in recent months than any other #tech in decades. It has accomplished tasks previously only seen in #scifi movies or read in fiction, marking a significant milestone in the field of #ai.
1/n
In 1950, father of #AI - Alan Turing, devised a test where a #machine could be considered AI, if one can't differentiate its responses from a human's. If a machine can accurately #translate text from one language to another, like a human, it would pass the Turing test.

#IPL is spreading hate amongst the citizens and minting money.

This is not a new analysis and it's known for most people but after watching yesterday's incident between #RCBvLSG this is the right time for all the cricket fans not to fall into this trap. 1/n
IPL has always been everything about #MONEY and #entertainment. The teams were based on most popular cities in #India so that each team will have larger fan following and representation, just like #football leagues. 2/n
The people behind #IPL were/are biggest #businessmen, #Celebrities from various fields and #politicians. It gathered enough attention when it got started as new league in 2008. Just because IPL has celebs backing doesn't mean it's gonna be a superhit league in the long run. 3/n

🔴Why did the Indian Peace-Keeping Mission in Sri-Lanka Failed

24 March 2023 marks the 23rd anniversary of withdrawal of Indian troops from Sri Lanka. Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Ranjan Wijeratne as he watched turbaned Sikh soldiers of the Indian Peace-Keeping Force board a...
..ship while a military band played "Auld Lang Syne’ said "They came on a peace mission, but then they got bogged down". The Indian intervention in the Sri Lankan Civil War was the deployment of the Indian Peace Keeping Force in Sri Lanka intended to perform a peacekeeping role.
The deployment followed the Indo-Sri Lankan Accord between India and Sri Lanka of 1987 which was intended to end the #SriLankan Civil War between militant Sri Lankan #Tamil nationalists, principally the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (#LTTE), and the Sri Lankan military.

#MahatmaGandhi had a complex relationship with Maharashtra, where his mentor Gopal Krishna Gokhale hailed from.

This thread is about #Gandhi and his relationship with #Marathi (and #Maharashtra)

#thread
#Maharashtra produced some of his staunchest supporters like Acharya Vinoba Bhave and Sitaram ‘Appasaheb’ Patwardhan, who was referred to as the ‘Konkan Gandhi,’ and his most bitter critics, like Dr #BabasahebAmbedkar and V.D. #Savarkar.
Eventually, a man from #Maharashtra--#NathuramGodse, killed #Gandhi.

I watched #KantaraMovie today and was thrilled while watching the #Varaha #Worship scenes. Appa had narrated a story where some 20+ years back he travelled with forest rangers deep into the south Canara forest in the middle of the night to see Bhuta worship dance and ritual.

/1
He took some amazing photographs with his film camera very similar to the visuals in the movie. We are trying to locate those photographs. Will share it soon.

I watched Rishab Shetty's interview in #Tamil and what a conviction in his #Hindu #Belief (#Deiva_Vazhipadu)! Appa would have loved this movie!

Congrats to the entire #KantaraMovie team for bringing out our regional traditions and culture to #entertainment field🙏.

Everyone who has visited Jaffna has probably walked past this mound of concrete.

Opposite Nallur Temple, just in front of Rio’s Ice Cream parlour, stands the now destroyed memorial to Lt. Col. Thileepan.

🧵A thread on rebuilding and resisting.

#tamil #eelam #srilanka

35 years ago, 100,000 people flooded the streets as he launched a hunger strike for Tamil rights.

He was a medical student before becoming political leader with the LTTE. And he was just 23 years old.

His hunger strike lasted for 11 days. He died on September 26th 1987.

The next year, a monument was constructed to honour Thileepan and his sacrifice.

As with many memorials to figures from the liberation struggle, it was revered by Eelam Tamils.

reuters story about how #erdogan tamed #turkey's newsrooms. it boggles the mind why #kurdish #media are not even mentioned, despite them playing a big role in getting important stories out. #journalism reuters.com/investigates/s…
it's an institutionalized story from @reuters. example: if you check which papers don't get state advertising anymore as a financial punishment, you won't stumble upon #kurdish #media because they never got it in the first place - and would refuse it. #journalism
also the piece lacks historical perspective. it only says '... the turkish mainstream #media, once a more lively clash of ideas'. not really. some reporters have covered real stories about the #kurdish issue but the editorial lines always followed the state narrative - willingly.

🧵1. On 18 July 2009, a mere two months after the end of the war in #SriLanka, a team of exiled
progressive #Sinhala journalists and #Tamil journalists came together and established @JDS.
2. In the post-war context, JDS played & continues to play a vital role on #accountability and
#justice issues related to Sri Lanka. Fueled by a moral obligation, the committed members of
JDS covered issues many feared to undertake.
3. Journalists within JDS chose to step forward and reveal evidence of war crimes and crimes
against humanity committed by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces (SLAF) during the final stages
of the war.
