Owned by #kings, dukes & sultans, worn by Marie Antoinette, used to pay off a royal debt – and said to carry an ancient curse. It would have to be a #diamond. But not just any diamond. It’s the Hope Diamond, and it's from Guntur in #AndhraPradesh. 1/12 Image
The Hope Diamond is the world’s largest and most legendary blue gemstone. And equally remarkable is its tale, which begins in the famed Golconda Mines in Guntur. But it began life under a different name. 2/12
#gems #minerals
The diamond was discovered by an extraordinary #French adventurer and gems merchant, Jean Baptiste Tavernier, who visited #India in the mid-17th century. It was 112 carats, the size of a grown man’s fist, and it was called Tavernier’s Blue. 3/12 Image

عمران خان صاحب کو بات سوچ سمجھ کر کرنی چاہئیے کہ پاکستان کا آئین بنیادی طور پر قرآن و سنت پر مبنی ہے لہذا کافر فرانسیسی خونریز انقلاب کی یا ایران کے مولویوں کے خونریز انقلاب کی اسلام قطعی اجازت نہیں دیتا | ریاست مدینہ کی بات کرنے والے ذرا بتائیں کہ فتح مکہ پر کتنے قتل ہوئے تھے

#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

During the #FrenchRevolution, these #Carmelite sisters refused to sign the Constitution Civile du Clerge that would render their Order submissive to the state. Kind of like the Little Sisters of the Poor.
I had the privilege of seeing a performance of Francis Poulenc’s opera Dialogues De Carmelites in NYC in the 80’s. Bottom line: don’t mess with nuns - you won’t win. Image
Here’s the incredible Jessye Norman as Sister Teresa of St Augustine:…

I want to take a moment to remind people,

the history of all these types of "movements",

back to the #FrenchRevolution & beyond,

Is one of controlled opposition--#SunTzu, #Machiavelli, #GameTheory--and beyond.

If you don't think they stage all this with outcomes in mind...
Please keep reading.

You'd be better served to look up #Cointelpro, especially in relation to past movements in the Black Community i.e. #MLK #MalcolmX and even #TupacShakur [LINK: ]

Before the arrival of Islam, there had never been any bloodshed in the name of Dharma in this hallowed land of #SanatanDharma

Do #Hindu know that #Nehru invited trouble by ‘importing’ the alien concept of SECULARISM from Europe?
After the 4th & before the 18th century, the function of the European States was not only to control the worldly life of its subjects, but also to secure salvation in the other🌎, key to which was in Church’s possession!

The Church excommunicated those who violated rules,👇🏻
& closed gates of heaven for him.
It was State’s duty then to burn him alive/torture to death!

Jews were deprived of all citizenship rights & stigmatized as
KILLERS of Christ!

State was termed as
‘SECULAR ARM’ of Church,
State admitted its main function was to serve Church!
