A COLOURFUL AND TRADITIONAL ART OF #Hinduism NAMED "RANGOLI"

Rangoli is an #Indian traditional or folk art, which is generally created on the floor on some festive occasions. The Indian scriptures and puranas can be attributed for the emergence of this creative rangoli art.
This ancient #Indian art is believed to be originated from the Indian state #Maharashtra, from where it get gradually dispersed in the rest of the country.

Rangoli is named differently in different Indian states like in #SouthIndia it is called #Kolam, Madana in #Rajasthan.
Chowkpurna is the name of rangoli in #NorthernIndia,Alpana in #Bengal, Aripana in #Bihar & so on.

According to the earliest disquisition or treatise on #Indian painting, named Chitra Lakshana, a king and his kingdom were extremely grieved on the death of the high priest's son.

Have been watching the evolution of @DilipGhoshBJP with admiration. Over the last four years he has really come of age and emerged as a leader to reckon with in #WestBengal vindicating his selection as @BJP4Bengal President. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021
2/n PM #NarendraModi takes stage - referring to the #UttarakhandAvalanche drawing a link between the source of the Ganga in #Uttarakhand and its meeting with the sea near #Haldia. #ModiInBengal #WestBengalElection2021
3/n As per @DilipGhoshBJP the gathering is around 3 lakhs from the 3 districts of erstwhile undivided #Medinipur. Impressive mobilisation. Certainly @SuvenduWB's entry would have made a big difference. #ModiInBengal #Haldia #WestBengalElection2021

#JyotiBasu is the mass murderer that India overlooked...

In mid-1979, around 40,000 eager, starving and frantic #Bengalis took cover on the island of Marichjhapi in the Sunderbans of #WestBengal.
(1/n)
They were #Hindu exiles who had fled abuse in East #Pakistan, which had as of late become #Bangladesh. The Govt of West #Bengal had would not assume any liability for them, constraining them to escape into the thick woods of the Sunderbans.
(2/n)
At that point, toward the finish of January 1979, they came. The West Bengal Police showed up in dispatch boats and assumed responsibility for the organization of streams that made up the Hooghly waterway delta. The island was currently totally encircled.

#Thread: Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose - The first PM India Deserved

The early 20th century was an important period for the Indian Freedom Struggle.

Several mass leaders joined the freedom struggle during this period.

One such leader was #NetajiSubhasChandraBose.

1/18
Lokmanya Tilak’s death in 1920 lead to the rise of Mohandas #Gandhi, Jawaharlal #Nehru, Sardar Patel, Netaji Bose, etc. within the Indian National #Congress.

Subhas Chandra Bose belonged from an influential and wealthy family in Calcutta.

2/18
He went to London in 1919 to fulfil the promise he made to his father to appear for the ICS examination.

He excelled in the ICS examination securing the 4th rank. But soon in 1921, he resigned from it and came back to #India as he did not want to work for the #British.

A copypasta campaign in India is targeting politically-sensitive tags #TMCHataoBanglaBachao & #KrishokSurokhaAbhijan on Twitter. I captured data over the past week for analysis.

Report: benjaminstrick.com/twitter-analys… CC @TwitterSafety

Here's some findings in this #OSINT thread 🧵👇
It's clear there is coordinated activity here. Scores of pro-BJP/Pro-Modi accounts operate in a network to spam packets of text (copypasta method)

Example: the tag #TMCHataoBanglaBachao with the text “Bengal has been suffering from last 10 years. The TMC regime has built..."
And another related campaign, using the tag #KrishokSurokhaAbhijan with the text: "নতুন কৃষি আইনের দ্বারা কৃষিজ পণ্য বিক্রি করা হবে আরও সহজ। বিজেপি সরকার আনছে কৃষক সুরক্ষা অভিযান।"

When you ignore crimes and murders by a state out of your FAKE "Federal structure" nonsense... this is what you get.. the "I am accountable to no one" crap... Its a major failure for @AmitShah @NarendraModi #Bengal ..
One more BJP worker Saikat Bhawal killed yesterday ... I wonder what @AmitShah will do now...
What went wrong in Bengal is what went wrong in India too... its name is MK Gandhi...

THREAD on how economically Muslims maybe poorer (the state is overall also not as rich) in #Bengal but have relatively got socio-political empowerment (part of Threads I am writing for the understanding of Bengal politics in the context of upcoming assembly election):

1/20
The socio-economic status of Muslims in the state is far behind other communities as the Sachar Committee Report (2006) and Pratichi-SNAP’s “Living Reality of Muslims in West Bengal” (2016) attest.

2/20
But it has not witnessed the rule of the BJP yet although the founder of the predecessor of the saffron party, Bharatiya Jan-Sangh, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee was himself a Bengali.

#Kanishka I was, the greatest, and certainly the most famous, of the #Kushan kings.
He is known, from the combined testimony of the literary, epigraphic, and numismatic sources, to have ruled over an extensive dominion extending from Bihar in the east to #Khorasan
@atalbrave
in the west, and from #Khotan in the north to, perhaps, #Konkan in the south.
The dates and findspots of some of the inscriptions of #Kanishka I are interesting:
#Kosam inscription dated year 2,
#Sarnath inscription dated year 3,
#Mathur¹ inscription dated year 4,
#Suivihar inscription dated year 11, and
#Manikiala inscription dated year 18.

Militant trade unionism and political turmoil are the main factors behind the lack of industry in Bengal.

However, I think the problem is much deeper and needs some analysis.

@promzzz
Take for example the problem with Jute.

Jute industry bloomed during the 2nd world war.

But partition had a devastating impact on the industry.
India and Bangladesh( then East Pakistan) became competitors rather than collaborators.
At the same time, alternatives to jute became available and with that the demand decreased.

I am Debarghya Bhowmick from #Kolkata, #Bengal, #India

I need to share my view to save #AirIndia

So we realize Air India is in gigantic misfortune and facing loses for decades.
(1/7)
The merger of #AirIndia with #IndianAirlines was the biggest mistake or perhaps the biggest mismanagement of the #GovernmentOfIndia.

Everybody is simply criticising nobody is talking about a permanent solution. 

So here is my end-all strategy-
(2/7)
First I intend to give full Air India for a lease of 20 to 35 years. 

With the goal that we can have enough assets for the subsequent stage.

Looking at rivers while walking across North Bengal on the
@outofedenwalk trail with @PaulSalopek.

Part 3 of 3 articles published with @Indian_Rivers, sharing what becomes visible at walking pace. Please read/RT.

sandrp.in/2020/11/10/riv… (1/9)
This map gives you a glimpse of the very dense drainage network in the region. Rivers don't care for "International boundaries", and make a stronger case for transboundary co-operation.

Lots of these rivers are heavily mined though. #EdenWalk #Rivers #India (2/9)
Large scale river bed mining and brick making operations are rampant all along this region in North Bengal.

Between these mining operations, railway lines and tea gardens, there are so many stories of people and wildlife - not all are pleasant. #EdenWalk #Rivers #India (3/9)

In collab with filmmaker #SatyajitRay, #GastonRoberge founded #Chitrabani — the only independent film library in Calcutta, in 1970. From here, Roberge pioneered film studies from early 70s. His friendship with Ray led to a creative effluence b/w each other’s film theory&practice.
Roberge’s #scholarship influenced numerous filmmakers & theorists in #Bengal & India. He authored numerous books on film & media; some of which include: Chitrabani(1975), Mediation(1978), The Faithful Witness (2000), Cyberbani(2005), Media Dancer(2008), Indian Film Theory (2011).

योगी राज में अपराधियों और गुंडों के एनकाउंटर पर स्क्रीन काली करने वाले पत्रकार और मानवाधिकार का झुनझुना बजाने वाले एक्टिविस्ट, बंगाल में जो हो रहा है उस पर कुछ नहीं बोलेंगे।
हेमताबाद से बीजेपी विधायक, देबेन्द्र नाथ रॉय की आज हत्या करके शव को खम्भे से लटका दिया गया। #Bengal Image
अपराध की रिपोर्टिंग करने से पहले ये देखा जाता है कि अपराध किस राज्य में हुआ, वहाँ सत्ता में कौन है। वो सेक्युलर है या कम्यूनल - उनकी नज़र में। उसके बाद रिपोर्ट की शक्ल कैसी होगी, प्राइम टाइम पर होगा या फुट नोट में डाला जाएगा? आंसू बहाने हैं या नहीं? ये सब तय होता है। #Bengal
और सबसे बड़ी बात है कि ये सब एकदम खुलकर हो रहा है। पत्रकार और एक्टिविस्ट का जो नेक्सस है, वो कह रहा है कि हम तो ऐसे ही रिपोर्टिंग करेंगे, जो उखाड़ना है उखाड़ लो। कोई कानून नहीं है, कोई मर्यादा नहीं है, सेल्फ रेगुलेशन का एक फरेब है। #Bengal

Thread:

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

/1
This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

/2
Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.
