Of late, I have been tweeting threads on issues like #history & on #Maharashtra & #Mumbai. This is a compilation of some threads over the month

On a little-known attempt by an inebriated #British policeman to kill #MahatmaGandhi in #Pune

The #ParvatiSatyagraha launched by Ambedkarites and reformist activities seeking that #Dalits be allowed to enter the Parvati temple in #Pune

#DrBabasahebAmbedkar #DrAmbedkar #DalitMovement #history
How #Dussehra was once a rallying point for the Swadeshi movement. It was on this day in 1905 that #VinayakDamodarSavarkar organised a massive bonfire of imported clothes

Bhawanrao 'Balasaheb' Pantpratinidhi (1868-1951) who ruled Aundh in #Maharashtra was an unusual king. His work at reforming criminals & convicts inspired V.Shantaram's acclaimed ‘Do Aankhen Barah Haath’ (1957). Balasaheb was born on 24 October 1868
#history #Marathi #films #art
Unlike rulers who tried to cling to power even when the end of British rule was evident, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi handed over the reins of the state to the people much earlier in an experiment inspired by #MahatmaGandhi. He also helped freedom fighters & revolutionaries.
In a sense, #BalasahebPantpratinidhi was among the reformist kings who tried to birth welfare states in colonial India. He was also associated with one of the most popular forms of exercises—the suryanamaskars.

This is a thread on the tradition of #wrestling in #Pune. The city was once known as a centre of wrestling. Even in those conservative times, these akhadas or wrestling schools acted as melting pots.
#sports #Maharashtra #Marathi #caste
The vastads or wrestling coaches included both, non-Brahmins & Brahmins. Their students too cut across communities.
Balambhatdada Deodhar, the man who is said to have invented the sport of mallakhamb, Bhikobadada Agashe, Ganpatrao Barve, Pandoba Jog, Dada Damle were among the #Brahmin vastads in #Pune.

Right then, let's do some #AEWDoubleOrNothing Predictions!

#wrestling #AEW #AEWDoN #DoubleOrNothing
Hookhausen vs. Tony Nese & 'Smart' Mark Sterling
I really enjoy Danhausen, but I feel like he shouldn't be in the same angle as Hook. Regardless, this should only go one way in my eyes.
Prediction: Hookhausen
Kyle O'Reilly vs. Darby Allin
I'm finding this one tougher to predict. The match will be fun, and while I think Kyle is a due a win after the loss to Cole, I can see Darby getting the nod.
Prediction: Darby Allin

🧵. #Russia colonised #Ukraine in 18th century. Since then, they've been trying to exterminate ukrainian indentity and culture, to assimilate us into being russian. They appropriated a lot of our #culture, #history, achievements and personalities doing this. 1/ #twitterstorians
Foreword. Many of these examples might seem to you as insignificant or unconnected, but they all are evidence to the trend of generations of russians trying to unexist us as a nation, make Ukraine into what they think we are – "Little Russia" 2/
Let's get the obvious one out of the door. #Borsch is and always was Ukrainian. It got into russia with soviet diner menus. Now russians claim it's as intrinsic to russia as it is to us. Bullshit. 3/ A beautiful and tasty combo of Borsch, salo (lard in pieces)

Today I wanted to share with you the first page of my story with Erik Lervold, Battle Royale.

For years, the main criticism of Cthulhu is Hard to Spell was that the cover did not relate to any of the interior stories.

Well, we fixed that this year by creating a story related very heavily to the awesome cover by Aaron Alexovich.
Our story features a drag down wrestling match between Cthulhu and Zeus with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.

I really want more folks to give #MechaAnime a shot. Mecha literally runs the gamut with regards to both genres and demographics.

bloodshed and political intrigue. It is so much more than that and dismissing it as such, like most of the current generation of neophyte Anime Fans, not only does the genre a disservice, but also yourself and the rest of fandom.

कुस्तीपटू रवी कुमार दहियाने भारतासाठी अभिमानास्पद कामगिरी केली , टोक्यो ऑलिम्पिकमध्ये पुरुषांच्या फ्रीस्टाइल 57 किलो गटात पटकावले रौप्य पदक

#Wrestling #TeamIndia #Olympics @Media_SAI @ianuragthakur
रवी कुमार दहिया हा मूळचा हरियाणाच्या सोनीपत जिल्ह्यातील नहरी गावचा आहे. तो एका शेतकरी कुटुंबातून आला आहे आणि त्याचे वडील त्याच्या गावातील भातशेतीमध्ये काम करायचे. त्याने वयाच्या 10 व्या वर्षी कुस्ती खेळायला सुरुवात केली. 2/n
2017 मध्ये वरिष्ठ राष्ट्रीय स्पर्धेदरम्यान त्याला गुडघ्याला दुखापत झाली. यामुळे त्याला कोणतेही प्रायोजक नव्हते आणि दुखापतीपासून बरे होण्यासाठी त्याला त्याच्या हितचिंतकांवर अवलंबून रहावे लागले. 3/n

Morning! In response to some of the tweets we're seeing online about @WWE and @WWERomanReigns we wanted to have a little chat about leukaemia/leukemia, relapse and perceptions of cancer. #WWE @davemeltzerWON
Firstly, incredible news about Roman Reigns. Relapse is a scary reality for all leukaemia patients. Either fear of your cancer returning or having to face treatment for relapse. It's great to hear some positive news from a leukaemia patient.
The tweets we are seeing mainly centre around the idea of what a cancer patient should look like.

"How can he have hair?"
"How can he have not lost weight?"
"Why doesn't he look like a cancer patient?"

.@realsportshbo revealed another ugly aspect to @NFL concussion story: Under existing terms of settlement with @NFLPA, board administering funds has denied most claims & major diagnoses such as behavioral issues & depression are not even covered. #labor #publichealth #oligarchy
.@nfl claims that many applications r fraudulent. Of course, people should defer to the league, since it's an expert in fraud. It misled its labor force for years about dangers of the sport & it has misled municipal governments into subsidizing its stadiums #GameRecognizesGame
This story represents almost everything wrong in #USA. #Oligarchy begrudges slimmest slices of pie to #labor, & we the #Idiocracy buy billionaires' merchandise made by more oppressed workers elsewhere & use $ from public treasuries to replace functioning stadiums for those with
