A revolt of Navy that would have stopped Partition of #India - A thread.
On the slight autumn day of 18 Feburary 1946 a revolt broke out in Royal Indian Navy by the Sailors. Britishers after World War 2 started to reduce the numbers of sailors. Again it’s simple use and throw policy used here. The numbers were to be reduced from 27, 650 to 11,000.
Reasons sailors revolted were:
• Wages were low.
• Food quality was terrible.
• Indian sailors were ill treated by the British officers.
• Britishers called Indian sailors who supported them in World War 2, colies, black bastards.
• Racism in the RNI was at it’s peak.

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

🔴🔴🔴Lorsque @BegonThomas commettait son erreur concernant Idéale, une Charolaise devenue Limousine dans son tweet, @farmers3b a lancé une série fabuleuse #ThomasCeciEstUne 👉🏻 pour nous offrir un tableau de races bovines incroyable.
Lançons #EmmanuelleCeciEstUne ⬇️
@emma_ducros je vous remercie pour votre anecdote ! @jegat5 m’a proposé alors le lancement d’une série sur les poules. J’attendais une occasion de le faire : le « kairos » s’est présenté. La poule-mouette n’aura qu’à bien se tenir.
Pour m’accompagner dans cette démarche, je vais utiliser entre autres un livre offert par le @ServiceInfoCNPO au #SIA 2020, qui propose une diversité de races de poules. Aussi, chaque jour (je ne sais pas si je serai aussi assidue que @farmers3b !) vous aurez une présentation 🐓 Image
