🪡@narendramodi will take part in the International Yoga Day show in #Mysore on June 21.

In a nation that buys ‘The Daily Spectacle’, this is just another dot in @PMOIndia’s diary.

But what goes into an event like this—for hashtags to trend for a few hours on Tuesday? #YogaDay
2️⃣ Modi doing #Yoga in #Mysuru is a big deal.

All three great gurus of the 20th century—T.Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyengar, K. Pattabhi Jois—grew under the patronage of the Maharajas of Mysore.

UN designated June 21 as #InternationalDayofYoga only after Modi became PM in 2014.
3️⃣ Still, a one-hour show led by the PM at Mysore Palace takes some doing.

Coverage in Mysore’s local dailies #StarOfMysore and #Andolana gives a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes.

It is a sobering lesson of how a partipatory democracy can be a made-for-TV spectacle.

So Bholu Bhakt decides to call up @narendramodi today.....

Bholu Bhakt: Modi Ji, thank you very much for taking my call. I never thought I would be able to talk to you. I want to ask you something.

Modi: No problem, ask..
Bholu Bhakt: Modi Ji, can you tell us something about the current state of economy? What is the current state of Indian Economy and what are you doing about it?

Modi: A-ha, usually I answer difficult questions first but I will answer this easy question for you as easily as 2/n
I answer all easy questions. The Ease of Easy Answering.

Bholu Bhakt: Okay please tell.

Modi: Instead of telling you, I will help you understand it better with a practical experiment because Practise, Practicals and Protocol are the 3 Ps to success..

Answering Two Questions about #Yoga on this #YogaDay2021 !

1. Is it possible to detach your soul from your body?
2. How to differentiate Yoga from Dream?

The answer to 1st question is: yes, it is possible to to separate the soul or jivatma from the body. 1/9
Even one can enter another body through this process:

When the bonds of the mind caused by action have been loosened, one may enter the body of another by knowledge of how the nerve-currents function-
[Patanjali Yoga Sutra- 3.37]

First is, yoga is that state where all the activity of the mind ceases (PYS - 1.2).

So the idea that in yoga one must be somewhere thinking something is incorrect. If one is thinking something then he might be practicing yoga, but he is not in yoga.

Well put by the Economist

China refues to show its version of the boundary
and continues to grab Indian territory
in spite of India's aim to talk and handle with peace!

Some of our old memories,activity on #YogaDay Image
The metaphysics of Yoga is built on dualist foundation Purusa ( Consciousness ) and Prakriti ( matter ).
Jiva ( a living being ) is considered as a state in which purusa is bounded to prakriti in some form.
@CMOMaharashtra @PMOIndia Image
During a state of imbalance or ignorance , one or more constituents overwhelm the others , creating a form of bondage.

అందరికీ అంతర్జాతీయ యోగా దినోత్సవ శుభాకాంక్షలు. ప్రపంచీకరణ కారణంగా జీవనశైలి మారుతున్న నేపథ్యంలో శారీరక, మానసిక ఆరోగ్యాన్ని కాపాడుకునేందుకు యోగా ఓ అద్భుతమైన సాధనం. ప్రతి ఒక్కరూ యోగాను తమ దైనందిన జీవితంలో భాగంగా మార్చుకుని ఆనందంగా ఉండాలని ఆకాంక్షిస్తున్నాను. #InternationalYogaDay Image
కరోనా మహమ్మారి నేపథ్యంలో.. శారీరక, మానసిక ఆరోగ్యంతోపాటు, రోగ నిరోధకశక్తిని పెంచుకునేందుకు యోగాభ్యాసం తప్పనిసరి. అందుకే ఈసారి అంతర్జాతీయ యోగా దినోత్సవానికి ‘ఇంటి వద్దే యోగా, కుటుంబంతో యోగా’ నినాదాన్ని ఇతివృత్తంగా నిర్ణయించారు. మీరు కూడా ఇళ్లలోనే యోగా చేయండి. ఆరోగ్యంగా ఉండండి.
వివేకానందుడు చెప్పినట్లు ఇనుప కండరాలు, ఉక్కు నరాలు, వజ్ర సంకల్పం ఉన్న యువత ఈ దేశానికి కావాలి. మన భారత సంప్రదాయ విధానమైన యోగ సాధన ద్వారానే యువతకు ఇవన్నీ సమకూరుతాయి. సమాజంలో శాంతి సామరస్యాలు, సుహృద్భావపూరిత వాతావరణం కూడా యోగాభ్యాసం ద్వారానే సాధ్యమని నేను విశ్వసిస్తున్నాను. #YogaDay Image

The new year begins and I usher into a scientific journey where I shall be challenging myself with scientific quest and reviewing a scientific article/blog/interview/technique or facts on a daily basis. (or at least try😉) #365DaysOfScience
Let the journey begin.
The most cited article (over 300,000 times) is the @jbiolchem paper for a technique to estimate protein concentration in a solution. The paper is "Protein measurement with the folin phenol reagent".
Image: @nature Image
Yes, the classic Lowry's method was published in May 1951. This is a colourimetric assay which gives an estimation of the amount of protein based on a standard curve obtained from a protein of known concentration (usually BSA).

#WhenYouAreRahul your internationally reputed college will publicly confirm your MPhil Degree.

When you are #DufferModi your college will block RTI for your "Entire Political Science" degree, which no other student got 🤣
#WhenYouAreRahul you dont have to be afraid of press or audience, and can bravely handle any question without pre-screening.

When you are #MeekModi you will only talk to bootlicking sycophant journos through pre-screened questions.
#WhenYouAreRahul you will respect your opposition and their necessary role in a democracy.

When you are fascist megalomaniac like #DemonModi you will rant for an opposition mukt country & use CBI, media and other institutions against them in your lust to retain power.
