Some people want to promote #homeschooling that will eventually embed caste system back in India because they feel Indian schools unfairly promote class-system and class-discrimination based on parental income.

1. They clearly seems to have not attended their Social Science 101 lessons.

The struggle against caste, class, racial, color discrimination is a perpetual struggle. What they do not know is our common schools are at the forefront of these struggles, against odds!

2. When India introduced RTE and allowed 25% 'poor' children to attend a private school near them for free, it was the upper-middle class parents who were up in arms against it, not schools. Imagine, you are pushing the same parents to do #homeschooling!

@narendramodi @nsitharaman @PiyushGoyal Sirs , when #RussiaInvadedUkraine govt of India evacuated nearly 30000 youths from ukraine.Many behaved as if by going abroad ty have obliged this country.It's not case abroad it's easy & &here it's hell
It's just a crazy flock. There are instances in families where one person has sacrificed life so others can study and progress. At that juncture that person was not aware that after 20 years the person for whoes survival ty sacrificed will fly abroad
I am highlighting serious social issues. The emotional turmoils which other members go through is of no concern. Systematic way a huge section of old class is created who search for a security and love.This is in million. It's a social medico issue

.@amitabhk87: The financial architecture wasn’t designed for #climatechange. There is a vast amount of capital available for climate change, but it will flow in when the risks are mitigated. For risks to be mitigated the financial architecture needs to be altered.

.@amitabhk87: If the developing world wishes to have #green, #resilient and #inclusive growth, it will only happen with concessional financing which would enable technology leapfrogging.

1. Minerals fall under the exclusive jurisdiction of provinces. As per Aghaaz Huqooq Balochistan package, ownership of #Saindak should have been transferred to GoB upon expiry of lease in 2012.

Qs for you:
I) Why GoP still manages the project? Why SML remains a GoP-owned Co.?
2. In original negotiations held in 2001-02, it was agreed tht a copper refinery would be established in Balochistan in 10 years’ time.

Why has the refinery not been setup after 20 years?

Does an independent mechanism exist to verify quantity of gold & copper being produced?
3. GoP has refused to transfer ownership of #Saindak on ground tht it has made Rs 30 Bn investment.

Can u share profits earned by MCC, GoP & GoB between 2002 & 2021? @Hammad_Azhar

On what grounds does GoP want 30 Bn when it has been getting bulk of profit since 2002?

NEW by me: Twitter has quit taking action against lies about the 2020 election: CNN report. An open letter to Twitter CEO and board chair from a $TWTR shareholder.

CC: @paraga @btaylor @nedsegal
Source @ddale8 @CNN:

"Twitter quit taking action to try to limit the spread of lies about the 2020 election... a day after another social media platform, YouTube, removed a Republican congressman's campaign ad because it included a 2020 lie."

Twitter's largest institutional shareholders should be alarmed by Twitter's decision not to enforce policy against tweeting election lies. Repercussions from election lies hurt investments and the economy. $TWTR

Online global e-commerce platform @Etsy still has not responded to the petition calling on corporate heads to stop selling incest + child abuse themed merch.

So we got together with some of our global anti sexploitation partners to send a letter to #Etsy's major shareholders.
These companies are profiting from @Etsy's sexploitative merch - including replica child body parts marketed for men's sexual use, and products with slogans which normalise + fetishise child sexual abuse. #EtsyExploitation…

Hi @McGrathFdn we support the aims and the work of your charity. We have lost loved ones to breast cancer and see the value of your important work.
#breastcancer #charity
We are therefore troubled to see #HoneyBirdette misusing your brand once again. Just like 2019, the shopping centre sex shop, has plastered your logo on its sexual objectification of women like a stamp of approval. #csr #ethics #adstandards @AANA_says… ImageImage

Media Release: New advertising code of ethics unlikely to rein in repeat corporate offenders #mediarelease #advertising #aana #csr #ethics #adstandards… Image
The Australian Association of National Advertisers (AANA) this week released its updated Code of Ethics following a review. While we welcome some new elements in the Code, we have reservations about its overall effectiveness.
The updated Code – taking effect Feb 2021 - includes restrictions on undue focus on male or female anatomy, unless relevant to the product being advertised, use of sexualised imagery or graphic violence where children are likely to view it, & avoiding harmful gender stereotypes.

1. During his #IndependenceDay2020 speech, PM @narendramodi again highlighted the necessity of #AtmaNirbharBharat. We went one step ahead asking us to move from #MakeInIndia to #MakeForWorld.

I wonder, why can't the same apply for NGO sector?
2. Do we have dearth of our homegrown NGOs that we need international NGOs to occupy our space in India, who primarily exist here to take benefits of the funding now available in India, including the #CSR funding?
3. We have a rich history of the CSOs, playing important role before the independence and afterwards. That has been undermined due to the heavy presence of international NGOs through their country offices.

CM #UddhavThackeray addresses state: We are all waiting for this war to get over. Like I had said earlier, if we could have seen our enemy, we could have won this war a long time ago.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #Coronavirus #CoronavirusLockdown #CoronavirusOutbreak
CM #UddhavThackeray: But this enemy is invisible. And another factor is that this enemy is using our own people to spread its infection. Determination, strength, patience all of these will stand us in good stead.

#COVID19 #COVID #CoronaInMaharashtra #CoronavirusLockdown
CM Uddhav Thackeray: Tomorrow we will complete 6 weeks since we have been in a #lockdown. Many are constantly looking at numbers and raising questions so I want to place some numbers in front of you.

In the backdrop of #Covid_19 #pandemic it is difficult for the states to maintain the economic balance. Here are a few suggestions that could be considered by the Central Government.
1. RBI has implemented new deferment policy regarding the loan repayment in the background of #Covid_19 #lockdown. This should be made applicable to State Debt as well. The central government should defer payment of instalments to RBI on State Debt at least for six months.
2. Most of the Natioalised Banks have flushed off more than 10 Lakh Crore of funds to corporates in the last five years. In the situation of Covid-19 Pandemic these Nationalised Banks should extend interest free advances to the State Government.

Today’s #coronavirus brainstorming:

#CSR as “Customer Social Responsibility”

Some preliminary thoughts

*** THREAD ***
Our world has become a single interconnected system

There is nothing “outside” it anymore

Every step we take affects the rest of the system
CSR typically means “corporate social responsibility”

> the idea that businesses have responsibility not just toward their investors but also toward every other part of the interconnected system in which they're embedded

employees, suppliers, customers, the natural environment

आज गंगोत्री और बद्रीनाथ में श्रद्धालुओं के अविस्मरणीय गंगा दर्शन के लिए अत्याधुनिक गंगा घाटों का निर्माण करने हेतु @cleanganganmcg, Indorama Charitable Trust और SPMG, उत्तराखंड के बीच एक त्रिपक्षीय समझौते पर हस्ताक्षर किए गए।

#HarKaamDeshKeNaam ImageImage
समझौते के तहत, श्रद्धालुओं को एक संतोषप्रद अनुभव प्रदान करने के लिए सभी बुनियादी सार्वजनिक सुविधाओं के साथ स्नान घाटों और श्मशान घाटों का नवीनीकरण / निर्माण किया जाएगा।

#CSR के माध्यम से उद्योग जगत का गंगा कायाकल्प में भागीदार बनना एक सुखी अनुभव है। मैं Indorama Charitable Trust और अन्य उद्योग जगत को इस आंदोलन में शामिल होने के लिए धन्यवाद देता हूं। अगर सभी भारतीय एक साथ कुछ करने की ठान लें तो कुछ भी असंभव नहीं है।

1/n #ACA Premiums and landscape files are out so here are the first thoughts:

Headline: Gross Premiums down 4% YoY

@dylanlscott @leonardkl @sangerkatz @sarahkliff @bobjherman @caitlinnowens @rachanadixit
2/N Lots of things are happening.

The biggest one is that 2018 was so massively overpriced that 2020 (these rates) are still reflecting that problem. 2 different pricing scenarios get us to the same point with different stories
3/N 2018 was a huge policy shock for pricing with massive uncertainty on #CSR leading to insurers either running from the market entirely, retrenching or jacking up rates

As soon as CSR Terminated (October 2017), #Silverloading differentially increased silver premiums by a lot
