Here is a round-up of #PrideMonth with The Hindu.
We take you through all the inspiring stories we've come across this month and how different cities in India and the world celebrated #PrideMonth2022.
#PrideMonth | A 24-year-old woman in #Gujarat's #Vadodara city married herself by undergoing traditional rituals of a Hindu wedding.
#KshamaBindu, who identifies as #bisexual, claims that her marriage will be the first instance of #sologamy in India.
#PrideMonth | What does meaningful inclusion look like? How can corporations prove their allegiances to the great, grand cause of #queer liberation? A nondescript bakery in a sleepy #Juhu lane in #Mumbai shows us.

Chennai-yin Rusigal #021

What: #Buttermilk from Chetta's Buttermilk

Where: Chetta's Buttermilk, Murugesan Complex Road (off Greams Road) Thousand Lights

Why: One would wonder what the deal with a simple dish as the buttermilk was.
We would say it's the taste and the loyal customer base. The buttermilk here is loaded with cut raw mangoes (maanga) and boondi, and the taste is heavenly! According to 'The Hindu', the curd for this buttermilk comes from a dairy farm in Walajabad.
It arrives at 04:00 am and around 50 litres of buttermilk is made at 04:00 pm every day. Their USP? They operate only during the late hours of the night! The crowds, both families and friends, that gather to have Chetta's Buttermilk is an experience by itself!

Off late there has been a lot of talk about why Chennai/TN aren’t in the startup race despite the talent density and why BLR/MUM/DEL take most of the honours! Here is a 🧵on my take

In the good old days, #Bengaluru was THE place for IT aspirants across India. Any kid choosing to study IT wanted to be placed in the companies hailing from Bangalore

Most Indian IT stalwarts like @Infosys , @TCS , @Wipro and large foreign consulting/product cos chose Bangalore as the hotspot. The city had a unique advantage of having both linguistic and lifestyle compatibility. 3/n

My #KashmirFiles movie & theater experience yesterday
☄After Uri I am watching an Indian Movie!
☄Superbly sequenced & lot of thought has gone into lining up incidents in a apt way
I was speechless & dumbstruck at the horrific k!lling & torture our #Hindus in Kashmir faced
in Jan 1990
☄Let's henceforth call it as #Hindugenocide not Exodus!😞
☄My daughter,at one point of time became too emotional & started giving gallies & countering statements-her mind voice was coming out & I had to silence her !
Imagine in #Chennai during
the movie - people shouted #Jaihind & #BharatMataKiJai
But I see they are not #Tamizhians ofcourse!
☄People who get depressed easily should not watch! The k!lling of character sharada was horrendous & we closed our eyes!

#GaslightingEthiopia 101:
How to support #TPLFinc by undermining GOE using #TPLFcrimes

1/ In their report released on Dec 9, @hrw detailed atrocities perpetrated by #TPLF in #Chennai and #Kobo, between Aug 31 and Sept 9.
The findings of the report are chilling and makes you shudder thinking of what must have happened in areas held by #TPLF for several months.
2/ Yet the report raises more questions than it answers.
What about the 90 days since Sept 9? Why conduct the reports remotely, despite at least some areas being free for 3 months? Why release the report now as #TPLF occupation is ending & more atrocities are coming to light?

Waited for the last week or so- to have a consensus - but I suppose before a consensus, rains could lash. Hence posting this.

Extreme rainfall alert once again for #Chennai

#ChennaiRains2021 #Chennai #ChennaiRains #chennaiflood #ChennaiRain #chennaiweather #TamilNadu
Twin circulations on both sides of the Indian Peninsula decide the fate of #Chennairains now. With the MJO in Phase 3- firmly - indications of an easterly surge and also a low-level circulation would increase the convective activity over #Central and #Northern #TamilNadu
Moderate rainfall for #Chennai to start from the evening. Southern suburbs ECR OMR Region would experience moderate to heavy rainfall from afternoon City will start to get rains from evening. Rains are expected through night and tomorrow it is going to be heavy to extremely heavy

Chennai has been worse severely hit & these are lessons learnt from #chennai floods & rains 2021

Nature is the most powerful force in the universe.

Prayers stay with you if you invest in them.

A positivity mindset is key to survive hard times.

People help each other out when there is time of need!

Manual labourers need to be treated with much more respect.

The city requires a lot of work and only depending on the government is totally absurd.

Visuals of houses submerged in #Miduchur, in Chennai suburbs. The residents have vacated. There’s no entry or exit to these houses as water has completely engulfed this neighbourhood of Varadarajapuram. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress #chennaifloods2021
If not for the Municipality sign board, one can’t recognise if this is a street or not. A whole neighbourhood in #MullaiNagar at Mudichir looks like a big water body after it was flooded due to rains. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress #Chennai
Rain hasn’t spared event the costly apartments. A huge gated community with about 500 houses witness severe inundation in Mudichur. Luckily, these apartments don’t have a ground floor house but all the residents have moved their cars out. @xpresstn @NewIndianXpress

This is the status of #Kovalambeach beach on ECR. Tonnes of water hyacinth from upstream #Chennai rivers filled with plastic, liquor bottles, biomedical waste & trash washes ashore here. #ClimateEmergency

This is the #TamilNadu Blue Flag Beach, supposedly the cleanest. Unless, we clean #Chennai rivers, tourists coming here will be at risk. Massive pollution noticed. Right time for #TNPCB to track source.

Extremely heavy rainfall alert for #Chennai

Close to 200+ mm rainfall is expected in most places in the city overnight.

I am still seeing messages where people are asking whether it would rain as it is being "hyped". Please note that if it doesn't happen we would be the happiest.

But unfortunately - the blogging community on the whole is of the same opinion that there would be heavy rains
Not only Chennai

#Kanchipuram #Chengalpattu #Kallakurichi #Villupuram #Cuddalore #Nagapattinam #Karaikkal #Pondicherry #Ranipet #Thiruvallur #Vellore and even #Krishnagiri should be on high alert as the system is expected to move inland

91B is gradually intensifying and rainfall will gradually increase over the course of the day.

Whatever warnings that were given still hold good.

Avoid venturing out.

#ChennaiRains #Chennai #ChennaiRain #chennaifloods #ChennaiRains2021 #ChennaiFlood #chennaiweather
#Nellore to #Karaikkal coast to be on high alert as the system is consolidating and the cloud bands are getting organized- slowly and steadily.

This would mean that rains will be more as the system nears the coast
Many asked me that there is not as much rainfall as anticipated. This would be primarily because the system is getting organized slowly and building a strong convective outer band. You can clearly see in the below image

While I dont want to create panic a couple of points from side
1 #Cuddalore & #Nellore coastal Stretch need to under extreme alert for heavy to very heavy rains peaking on Thursday/Friday Morning
2 There is a possibility Depression might slow down near #Chennai
Thread 1/2 #COMK
3 If it slows down we may see the depression stay within 100 kms radius of Chennai for more than 12 hours.
4 In this case we may see a very heavy rainfall episode between #Mahabalipuram & Sriharikota though I can't pinpoint exact location. #Chennai needs extreme vigil
2/3 #COMK
5 #Chennai has seen good #Rains this year with annual avg already reached by the IMD obs. The soil moisture levels are high which will increase surface water runoff creating localized flooding / water logging. So if you lie in a low lying area Be Prepared #COMK #ChennaiRains 3/3

Now that the #rain has stopped for a while in #Chennai, it is time that we get to know what we can expect this week.

1. A Low-pressure area will likely form in the next 2 days in the Southeast #BayofBengal region.

2. Owing to favourable conditions this will further intensify.
3. Preliminary analysis suggests that this system will likely intensify as deep depression and would move towards Coastal #TamilNadu

4. Possibility of this system intensifying into a cyclone exists. Which means a named #cyclone is a possibility
5. Assuming that it becomes a named cyclone, this would be named "#Jawad" named by #SaudiArabia

6. The track that it is likely to take is that it will climb up Northwest - intensify near the coast and move lateral west in between #Chennai and #Pondicherry
