Indian dog breeds enjoy #Deepavali They have no problem with any of our traditional celebrations!

Foreign breeds, much like foreign politicians, have no business here. We don't care what they feel! Your dog or cat is your liability! Nobody is going to stop celebrating for them!
If you love dogs so much, why don't you grow a Desi breed? They are fantastic! At least, experts on dogs say so! Indian Spitz, Gaddi Kutta, Bully Kutta, Mudhol Hound, Indian Pariah, Kaikadi, Taji, Rajapalayam, Pandikona, Jonangi, Bakharwal, Tangkhul, Kombai, Rampur Greyhound...
Chippiparai, Vikhan Sheepdog, Mahratta, Sinhala Hound, Kumaon Mastiff, Gull Dong and the Gull Terrier...

Few Indian native breeds! There are so many more if you look around!

Just don't give us Gyaan on Hindu festivals! 😏

“Bhooma Devi did not think whether Ganga Matha was associated with Shiva or Vishnu. Among all the holy rivers, is it not the Ganges, which is given the prime place by all the people, without a distinction between being Saiva or Vaishnava? Image
Therefore, she obtained the boon that the bath taken on Deepavali day should get the fruits of a bath in Ganges. Generally, if you see the history of any holy shrine, it would be mentioned that it is equal to Kasi or it is greater than Kasi. From the very fact that one shrine is
not compared with any other but only with Kasi, it can be inferred that Kasi is the king of all shrines. Similarly, in all the mythological stories about holy rivers, without mentioning that it is superior to another, a river would be eulogised as “it is as pure as Ganges” or

While #Hindus were celebrating #Deepavali yesterday, the West was busy attacking us for our faith or erasing our identity. Remember #DismantlingGlobalHindutva?
A thread on #Hinduphobia in the last 24 hrs. 1/5
CASE 1. Joe Biden in this #Deepavali White House address called us "South Asians" and not #Hindus. #Deepavali is now a "South Asian" festival not #Hindu but Eid is Muslim festival and Xmas is Christian festival.

CASE 2. Environment Canada blamed #Deepavali for poor air quality in some parts of Canada. Later retracted their statement. 3/5…

The uninterrupted blast of fireworks are now music to my ears!

And meanwhile in Srirangam!!

🎆 🎆🎆🎆🎆🎆🎆🎆


And Namperumal Darshanam today! From the Chandana Mandapam. Once a year he spends the entire day with all the Azhwars and Acharyas! And after his Thirumanjanam and their Mariyadhai by sunset, returns to his Moolasthanam.

May he continue to bless us!

Ranga! Ranga!

Few of the Azhwar and Acharyal images.

Last year, Supreme Court passed an order saying-
THERE IS NO BLANKET BAN. #firecrackers.

Even after that,
Delhi govt has put blanket ban on #firecracker while Punjab Govt has allowed only 2 hours on #Deepawali.

If you face any issues,
I’ll defend you legally: free of cost.

The part of the order of Supreme Court where it has been made clear:

So any ban above this is illegal.

@iPratyush_ & I will defend you if there is any legal/police action, free of cost.

No one can stop you to celebrate #Deepavali & #ChhathPuja2022

Those who couldn’t stop #stubbleburning are attacking our festivals in the name of pollution.

We’ll fight against them.

If they can’t stop #Parali,
they have no right to #BanFirecracker

#Thread Idi0t’s Guide to #NoBindiNoBusiness, for the trolls who deliberately misinterpret the hashtag n the thought behind it. Repeat after me, #No_Bindi_No_Business is about CHOICE. It is not a compulsion, it is not a law. It is about the right of the ordinary Hindu to say NO!
When brands advertise for Hindu festivals like #AkshayaTritiya #Ugadi #Deepavali #GaneshChaturthi it is a reasonable expectation that they should respect the consumer’s culture, traditions, symbols. A bindi/Tilak/sindoor is one of the prominent Hindu symbols #NoBindiNoBusiness
If a brand wants Hindu money, the brand HAS to respect Hindu sentiments. The ads have to reflect the Hinduness, the joy, the spiritual significance of the festival. You want Hindus to buy gold from you for #AkshayaTritiya then show respect to Hindu culture. #NoBindiNoBusiness

A CM not greeting people on one of the two most celebrated festivals of the State,one celebrated by the majority of people in Tamil Nadu only shows that this is not an inclusive Govt. A party leader can be as he likes.A CM has to be inclusive.
தீபாவளி பண்டிகை ஹிந்து மதத்தை சார்ந்த பெரும்பாலானோறால் கொண்டாடப்படுகிறது. ஒரு கட்சி தலைவர் வாழ்த்து தெரிவிப்பது அவர் விருப்பம். முதலமைச்சர் வாழ்த்து தெரிவிப்பது அவர் கடமை. பாகிஸ்தான் பிரதமர் வாழ்த்து தெரிவிக்கிறார்.
ஆனால் பெரும்பாலும் ஹிந்து மக்கள் வாழும் மாநிலத்தின் முதல்வர் வாழ்த்து தெரிவிக்கவில்லை. அநேகமாக வாழ்த்து தெரிவிக்காத ஒரே முதல்வர் @mkstalin தான். என் எதிர்பார்ப்பு இந்த முறை எல்லோரையும் அரவணைக்கும் ஒரு ஆட்சி திமுக வழங்கும் என்று. அவ்வாறு இல்லை என்பது வருத்தம் அளிக்கிறது.

దీపావళి✨ పండుగ పటాకులు కాల్చేప్పుడు తీసుకోవాల్సిన జాగ్రత్తలు....! #Deepavali #Diwali #Happy
దీపావళి పండుగ రోజున ప్రతి ఒక్కరూ తప్పని సరిగా జాగ్రత్తలు తీసుకోవాలని సూచిస్తున్నారు డాక్టర్లు.
💥దీపావళి రోజున ముఖ్యంగా చిన్న పిల్లలు పటాకులు కాల్చే ముందు కాటన్ దుస్తులు దరించాలి. Image
సిల్క్, నైలాన్, సింతటిక్ దుస్తులు వేసుకోకూడది.
💥పెద్దల పర్యవేక్షణలోనే పటాకులు కాల్చాలి.
💥 చిచ్చుబుడ్డీలు, రాకెట్‌లు, పటాకులు చేతిలో ఉంచుకొని కాల్చరాదు.
💥పటాకులు కాల్చే ప్రదేశంలో నీరు అందుబాటులో ఉంచుకోవడమే కాకుండా.. Image
💥ఇంటి దగ్గర కాకుండా ఓపెన్ గ్రౌండ్‌లో కాల్చడం మంచిదంటున్నారు. ప్రధానంగా విద్యుత్ ట్రాన్స్ ఫార్మర్, కరెంటు తీగలు ఉండే స్థలాలలో కాల్చవద్దు.
💥కంటి అద్దాలు, కాళ్ళకు చెప్పులు, చెవులో దూది ఉంచుకొని కాల్చాలి. టపాసులతో జాగ్రత్త!! 🏥🚑 Image

Many asked me through DMs that why I am not tweeting on Roopa IPS issue and is it because she was a columnist in our newspaper?
No, it is because I am in my native & don't have proper network to tweet.

🚩 #Thread 1. Don’t be apologetic about #Deepavali  Be proud of #SanatanDharma @imVkohli
In Bengaluru alone 4lakh animals are killed on Eid which incl 10,000 large animals -cattle & camels generating 300 tons of animal waste which is buried in pits near Kogilu on cityoutskirts🚩
2. For 14 lakh Peacefullls in Bengaluru - 4 lakh animals are killed.
Even if 1 animal weighs 10 kg then can an average person eat 3 kg meat on single day ?
And mind you this includes kids& infants also. So most of the meat goes waste..🚩
3. If you conflate this number to whole of India-then imagine the number of animals killed on that single day ?
For 200 millon it must be at least 20 millon animals
& 200 millon kgs of meat & staggering 8 billon kgs of Green House gases & Carbon dioxide 🚩

Happy Narak Chaturdashi to all of you. The eldest member of family lights a Diya facing South Direction when all family members are inside, shows it too all corners of house and then keeps it at unknown place. With this Diya, all evil vibes too go out. #NarakChaturdashi

#NarakChaturdashi remains one of the fewest occasions when one can pray facing South Direction. The direction of Yama, the Lord of Death and Dharma is South. Prayers are made to Yama for long life of self, near and dear ones and to avoid untimely death.
On #NarakaChaturdashi, Bhagwan Krishna and Devi Satyabhama, his wife, slew Narakasur and freed 16,100 girls captured by him. Many Deepaks are lit on Kali Chaudas (14th night on dark phase, another name of Narak Chaturdashi) to pay respect to these girls. #NarakaChaturdashi2020
