I am a Proud Hindu🕉️ from South India.

#Bhogi, #Pongal, #Kanuma #Ugadi/#Yugadi, #Puthandhu, #Vishu, #Bonalu, #Onam, #Bathukamma, #Atlatadde/#Atlataddi, #KarthigaiDeepam etc are Hindu🕉️ festivals & they're based on our Hindu calenders only.

DO NOT "Secularize" them bcoz

(1/n)
you Le-Lis want to further your North-South divide by tying us to some fake regional pride.

Non-Hindus can celebrate Hindu🕉️ festivals in our way if they want but don't try to appropriate & disrespect our Hindu festivals-traditions.

DO NOT take our tolerance for granted.

(2/n)
To stop @narendramodi, #Hindutva; many Anti-Hindu groups are destroying, demeaning South's Hindu culture.

E.g. Xtian missionaries are appropriating #Bathukamma🕉️ festival


While Islamist @asadowaisi mocking our #Bathukamma🕉️

தமிழகத்தில் வெற்றி பெற என்ன செய்ய வேண்டும்?

1. தலைமை பொறுப்பில் உள்ளவர்கள் கட்சிக்கு உண்மையாக இருக்க வேண்டும்.

2. மோடியின் சாதனைகளை மக்களிடம் கொண்டு செல்ல வேண்டும்.

3. மக்களோடு பழக வேண்டும், எதார்த்தை புரிந்து கொள்ள வேண்டும்

4. குறைந்தது ஒரு வருடத்திற்கு ரசாயணம், வேதியியல் அறிவியல் சாரந்த எந்த ஆய்வும் தமிழகத்தில் மத்திய அரசால் தொடங்கபட கூடாது.

5. ஒரு வருடத்திற்குள் பிரிவினைவாத நபர்கள் வை.கோ, சீமான், வேல்முருகன், திருமுருகன், பியூஸ் மனுஸ் மற்றும் அவர்களின் ஓனர் ஸ்டாலினுக்கு சிறை!

6. ஆர்எஸ்எஸ் அமைப்பு தமிழகம் முழுவதும் உள்ள ஒவ்வொரு கிரமத்திலும் தொடங்கப்பட வேண்டும். அதன் மூலம் அணைவருக்கும் தேச பற்று, நேர்மை, ஒழுக்கம், சுயமரியாதை ஆகிய நல்ல குணங்களை உருவாக்க வேண்டும். நல்ல குணங்களை கொண்ட ஒருவன் ஒருபோதும் திமுகவை ஆதரிப்பது என்பது எந்த காலத்திலும் நடக்காது...

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
The author of the Periplus of the Erythrean Sea describes the ports of the Coromandal coast as follows. “Among the market-towns of these countries and harbour where the ships put in from Damirica and from the north, the most important are, in order as they lie, first Camara...1/2

#DMKAlliance win in #TamiNadu is staggering on many accounts. Out of 38 seats went for polls #DMK and alliance partners won 37 seats. A look at winning margins
5 to 6 Lakh = 2 seats
4 to 5 Lakh = 4 seats
3 to 4 L= 8 seats
2 to 3 L= 9 seats
1 to 2 L= 11 seats
0 to 1 L = 3 seats
#TamilNadu Biggest victory margin in seats where #DMK was in contest against #PMK. #Sriperumbudur and #Dindugal.... DMK won both seats by a margin of more than 5 lakh votes. Interestingly in both seats PMK saved their deposits... #TNRejectsBJP #ElectionResults2019

Child Birth in Ancient TamilNadu!

It is tried here to focus the attention of the Scholars on the method of Child Birth in Ancient TamilNadu. The earliest source material for knowing method is the Sangam Literature (5th CE BC to 5th CE AD) which have no direct bearings about it!
But it refers to the bathing of Mother after the delivery of a Child!

#MaduraiKaanchi (ll: 600-603) & #Natrinai mention the purificatory bath of the Mother after having delivered a Child!

#Natrinai (370: 3-4) also refers to the custom of a bath of Ghee by it delivered Mother!
🔹The Teeth of Tiger was tied around the neck of the Child - #Kurunthogai (161: 3-4)

🔹A Rattle like ornament was also worn to the Child - #Purananuru (198: 1-5)

#Thread Family Doctors (Primary Care) Vs Speciality Care in #India
A few weeks ago, in response to a different thread ( ) there was a comment from @spinesurgeon that we need family physicians. (1/31)
Another comment in that thread by @VaradhKrish referred to the issue of patients going directly to specialists, bypassing primary care doctors. (2/31)
The problem of patients going to specialists directly, rather than to primary care/family doctors first and then being referred by them to specialists is one that requires a more in-depth analysis. (3/31)

1/ NEW WORKING PAPER on #InternetShutdown-s and protest in #India based on thousands of data points from 2016. Bottom line: shutdowns are followed by a clear *increase* in violent protest & have very ambiguous effects on peaceful demonstrations. #KeepItOn papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cf…
2/ India has recorded by far the highest number of shutdowns of any country in the 🌏 - a staggering 134 (per @NetShutdowns) just last year, largely in an attempt to quash protest. What this paper shows is that this kind of repression does not achieve what it sets out to achieve.
3/ I used data from @ACLEDINFO+@icews on 1000s of violent & non-violent events, teasing out categories of organizing parties. AFAIK this is the 1st statistical analysis of large-scale blackouts and offline dissent at this scale, in the country where they happen the most - #India.

In the following threads I'll try to discuss the links between Dravidian-Missionary Nexus, expose the links between the so called NGOs and #BreakingIndia Brigade, how they plan to derail all developmental projects mostly in the State of #TamilNadu
While in reality most of know that there's much more to the #Tuticorin protests, much of it was not highlighted by the Left leaning Media. The Church seems to have led the media by the nose in helping build a Congress-Communist narrative that dragged the Namo Govt into this
The coverage by the national media of the protests in Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu, against Vedanta’s copper smelting plant has been injudicious, based on hearsay and without application of mind. A narrative has been parroted without critical Examination. It's true that few were shot

This is especially for all the tweeple dissing the #DilliChalo farmers' rally saying they're just communists carrying flags. The main organiser is the All India Kisan Sabha, with communist history, but also 200+ groups. If ur here attending, u won't be able to diss their concerns
In rural India, farmers' unions & co-ops are a norm. It's an activity u might think is left leaning,but collective bargaining is the only way to access markets, push fr good prices, regulate seeds & fertilizers, even organise life. It's as rooted as harvest festivals #dillichalo
It might be ignorant to dismiss organised farmers and labourers just because they are unionised and aware. #DilliChalo

While *most* South Asian Muslims use #Persian terms for religious concepts, Muslims in #TamilNadu & #Kerala (who trace their roots to Arab trading communities) have distinct traditions also reflected in their terminology, which freely draws from #Tamil/#Malayalam & #Sanskrit.
Instead of rozā, the #Persian term for Islamic fasting (itself a translation of #Arabic ṣawm) used in #Urdu, #Bengali, #Gujarati etc, #Tamil & #Malayalam speaking Muslims use nōmpu, lit. ceremonial fasting. The word is from a proto #Dravidian root meaning to do penance. #Ramadan
Sanskrit is used too. #Malayalam speaking Muslims commonly refer to #Ramzan as puṇya māsam, #Sanskrit for month of good merit. Nimskāram, the Malayalam counterpart of the #Persian namāz (Islamic prayer), is from #Sanskrit namaskāra (lit. prostratration, here, to a god). #Ramadan
