1/Mega famous Malayali #LULU MALLS are not being set up in #muslim dominated towns of #Kerala, like Kannur, Kasaragod, Kozhikode or Malappuram.  Instead, It goes to Ernakulam, Thiruvananthapuram, Kottayam, now Palakkad, Coimbatore & Bangalore. You know why?
2/ Firstly, he does not want to disturb the business of small shops run by the #Muslims in these Muslim dominated areas.  And by setting up a mall in the land of the 'Kafirs', he can destroy the small businesses owned by the #Kafirs #Hindus.
3/Secondly, he recruits 20,000 employees in a mall.  Of these, 15,000 are muslim youth and

5000 are #Hindu women. Thus 15,000 men interact with 5000 young Kafir (Hindu) girls - potential for “Love Jihad” at its best.  Most of the girls are silent because their job is at stake.

For the second part of the four part series of spatial zoom ins on the trends of urbanisation in Tamil Nadu, we look into western TN.
The dynamics of urbanisation outside of Chennai's sphere of influence is seldom discussed in popular discourse. That makes the next 3 zoom ins that much more interesting to start a dialogue on the regional dynamics of urbanisation in the state.
Western Tamil Nadu has urbanised rapidly in the last 15 years as seen evidently from the maps. The region already had a strong textile processing and manufacturing industry which has matured considerably in the recent years.

THREAD on what goes unreported about #DisabilitySport (here #WCBB) from developing countries like India. I woke up to an American colleague's exciting tweet about conducting research at this 'international inaugural event' and the #ScholarActivist in me cannot keep quiet. 1/
@_IWBF and @ICRC_nd including @Paralympics have for years noted that inside India, the #SportGovernance of #WCBB is a crumbling structure with no real grassroots development happening in true sense. Several complaints have been brought to their notice 2/
In private "off-record" conversations many international experts who carry pride in introducing #DisabilitySport to people from marginalized communities like India agree that @wbfi_info needs lot of work internally to call itself truly committed to the sport's development 3/

இந்தியாவின் ஏனைய மாநிலங்களுக்கு ஓர் உயர்ந்த உதாரணமாகத் தமிழ்நாடு திகழ்ந்து வருகிறது. பல்வேறு மதங்களைப் பின்பற்றுவோர் இங்கே ஒருதாய் பிள்ளைகளாய் தொப்புள்கொடி உறவுகளாய்ப் பிணைந்து இணைந்து வாழ்ந்து வரும் சூழலைச் சீர்குலைக்கும் எந்த சூழ்ச்சிக்கும் இங்கு இடங்கொடுத்து விடக்கூடாது.

Jameza/Jameesha #Mubin was 29y.o. man from the area #Ukkadam.

Reports say that he was radicalised by the #IS philosophy and was planning an #EasterBombing style operation in #Coimbatore and was planning to kick start the same from Konniyamman temple or Kotta Eswaran temple.
It is also being said that he was already on the watchlist of the #Tamilnadu police as he had tried to set off an explosion few years ago.

He is also set to have close contacts with Mohammed Azharuddin, now in #Kerala jail for his involvement with #ISIS.
It is important to know that Azharuddin had close contacts with #ZahranHashim, the chief mastermind of the #EasterBombings in #Srilanka in 2019.

Mubin was NOT driving a gas vehicle but a petrol vehicle and the early triggering of the cylinder could have been an accident.

#Thread about EV Bikes & why @ather is solid?

The biggest lesson that @OlaElectric taught to all aspirational startups is that if you wanna disrupt the market come with a solid foolproof product rather than dumping the garbage. ⬇️ (1/14)

It was in the year 2017 I read about a passionate product incubated in IIT Madras. A group of engineers trying to build a world-class eScooter naming the company Ather Energy. EVs are not new to South India. (2/14)
*Below image is the first newsletter I received from Ather
↗️Reva 1994 - a pioneer & first functional EV car started in #Bengaluru later sold to @MahindraRise
↗️@ampere_ev bikes started 2007 in #Coimbatore later invested by @RNTata2000 himself & now sold to Greaves.
They're way ahead of their time when India is not ready for EVs (3/14)

#Elections are supposed to be about electing representations for framing legislations

However the geography behind delimitation which doesnt consider complex socio-economic conditions promote communal polarization leading to deterioration of Democractic values

Understanding Delmitation:

The constituency delimitation is based on population. and for last delineation exercise, 2001 population was used. Average population was calculated to be 270000 people per constituency

#Map shows Population spread in Tamil Nadu
To delineate which village/town comes under which constituency, some rules are followed

To achieve the avg population, officials start with headquarters for the constituencies in district & add villages/towns within same or neighbouring taluks(subdistricts) in same district

The Director of the Drugs Control Dept. will direct pharmacies to make emergency contraceptive pills available for OVER THE COUNTER purchase. The Dept. will clarify to all pharmacies that ECP’s are LEGAL/NOT BANNED, must be stocked & sold
Those of us who stock ECP’s and give out to people need/can't find them WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO. So yes, ask if you need the pill, but before you do, PLEASE CHECK PHARMACIES IN YOUR AREA. If it’s not available at a pharmacy let us know so we can inform the area drug inspector.

On Wednesday, Nov 11th at 9 PM, I sent out an email representation drafted by an amazing bunch of lawyers regarding ECP’s being unavailable and inaccessible for purchase in TN to 5 state departments: Drugs Control, Health, Home, Social Welfare, Women’s Commission.

கோவை சுந்தராபுரம் பகுதியில் உள்ள தந்தை பெரியாரின் சிலை மீது சில நச்சுக்கிருமிகள் காவி சாயத்தை ஊற்றி அவமதிப்பு செய்துள்ளனர். இது கண்டிக்கத்தக்கது. இதற்கு காரணமான விஷமிகள் யாராக இருந்தாலும் அவர்களை கைது செய்து கடுமையான நடவடிக்கை எடுக்க வேண்டும்!(1/4)
தந்தை பெரியாரின் சிலைகள் மட்டும் தொடர்ந்து அவமதிக்கப்படுகிறது என்றால், அவரது கொள்கைகள் தமிழகத்தில் கடந்த சில காலமாக ஊடுருவியுள்ள நச்சுக்கிருமிகள், விஷப்பாம்புகளை அச்சமடையச் செய்துள்ளன; அதன்விளைவு தான் இது என்பதை புரிந்து கொள்ள முடியும்!(2/4)
கொள்கை அடிப்படையில் எதிர்க்க துணிவில்லாத கொரோனாவை விட மோசமான இந்த நச்சுக்கிருமிகள் மிகவும் ஆபத்தானவர்கள்; சமுதாயத்தில் நஞ்சை பரப்புபவர்கள். அவர்களிடமிருந்து நமது பிள்ளைகளைக் காப்பதும், விழிப்புணர்வூட்டுவதும் தான் நமது முதல் கடமையாக இருக்க வேண்டும்!(3/4)

USD 0.42 Doc consultation fee. @JasonRobertC Thread gives a better idea why I'm saying this. 🙂

There are many namesake four-lane 'highways' in #Coimbatore including the one where seven innocent lives are lost by an irresponsible scoundrel today. These roads have only one drivable lane in each way, effectively making these two-lane highways. 1/5
There is no shoulder or service lane in any of these 'highways'. There are no 'stop-lanes' for buses. Buses stop right on the left lane. Private bus operators are privileged (keeping officials on maamool) and at times even occupy both lanes during stop. 2/5
Lack of dedicated stop locations for autorickshaws/share-autos/minibuses let them encroach upon the driving lane while being parked. No proper bus shelters, hence people stand on the road. Add chaotic maamool paying petty shops to this & you get a classic recipe for disaster. 3/5
