A (Non-Boring) Twitter History of the Word, Namāz ( نماز#, #नमाज़)

The word “namāz” in #Urdu/#Hindi is used for the five daily prayers that every #Muslim is supposed to offer.

The word for the five daily prayers in #Arabic , however, is salat, صَلاة

Of Persian import, namāz has a long and extremely complex history, which can be traced back to the pre-Islamic past.

The origin of namāz can be traced back to an ancient proto-Indo-European root, nam (to bow, to bend).

The verb nam (to bow) and the noun namah-/namas- (prostration, reverence) can be found in both #Sanskrit and Avestan, the Zoroastrian #Scripture .

Following revelations were shared by the #Dalit #Adivasi and EBC communities at a national convention held by the All India Union of Forest Working People #AIUFWP in Delhi in August 2021, 2 years after forced social isolation.
Report by @Countercurrents…
"caste still remained one of the key instruments of oppression in the remote interiors of India, especially in the feudal domain of the Hindi heartland."

26.1.2022 ~ 630 AM -Outside KSR Railway station (SBC)
– I was in the process of getting out when a #BBMP Marshall threatened me in #Hindi to step to the side by yelling at me,”mask kyu nahi paina? Photo dikavu kya??”

Me, in my mind - Do I bloody look like North Indian to these jokers?
Me: ‘yakappa, #Kannada baravallva?’
Marshall 1 : aaythu aaythu, Baa side ge… kattu fine’u -two pipty kattu !! (his tone was like I was a war-criminal on the loose)
I realized they had rounded about 5 more men (poor looking – north Indian men) I was the 6th. I was observing the 5 helpless men and the two #BBMP marshalls – I loved their arrogance of #BBMP marshalls on us (common people).

#AntiHindiAgitation in Tamilnadu on 1965, rewritten the history and it was the collective resistance against Hindi Imposition.Now India is giant in global market because of that struggle and many Tamil people have sacrificed their life
Thread 1/n
to preserve our #Identity #culture and #language. We are not against Hindi but against Imposition. 1965 revolution is regarded as watershed movement in history of India and as well as Tamilnadu. After 1965, no National parties come to power in Tamilnadu state.
If such revolution doesn't happened, #Hindi would be only official language since 1965. English might lose its significance. Certainly,we would communicate only in Hindi as like north Indians, all our posts, communication and records will be in Hindi.

All very easy to pile on the @IndianExpress which won’t influence a single vote. Three large Hindi newspapers, with 200-300 times more circulation in #UttarPradesh, carried the same “offending” advertisement. What about them? @JagranNews @AmarUjalaNews @Live_Hindustan
2️⃣ Beyond the fact-free content of #UttarPradesh ads, the real issue is the vomit-inducing splurge of taxpayers’ money to capture media. In just the 31 days of December, sangh mouthpiece ‘Dainik Jagran’ received 63 ads; ‘Amar Ujala’ 58; ‘Hindustan’ 37. #SochInaamdaarKaamDumdaar
3️⃣ Add advertorials, partnerships, events, slanted news (prepaid and postpaid) and puff pieces intended to massage the ego and secure more, and the obnoxious waste of public money by the @myogiadityanath government to buy up media becomes clear. #SochImaandaarKaamDumdaar

For all the apparent bonhomie during the #ModiInAmerica visit the following stand out. 1) As critics gleefully pointed out #kamlaHarris tweeted the visit very late 2) #Modi did not wear a suit even once & only Indian ethnic dress 3) #NarendraModi refused to speak in English even
in the meeting with #JoeBiden using a interpreter 4) A hug was rejected & limited to holding hands 5) #Hindi, #Sanskrit, #IndianCulture, #INDIA INDIA INDIA at every stage with a determined espousal as the Mother of all #democracies, #Vaccine, #Chanakya, #DeenDayalUpadhyaya he
snubbed those who lectured with a slap 6) #NarendraModi bluntly told failures of world orgs without taking names about origin of vaccine & #Afghanistan 7) The most self confident assertion was when he said "When India grows, the world grows, When India reforms world transforms"

#DelightReview: #Bala ( #Hindi) 2019 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Genre - #Comedy #Drama
#OTT - @DisneyplusHSVIP
An entertaining movie, with a message to *accept yourself as you are* ..must watch

This movie perfectly captures the life of a prematurely balding young man & his struggles
( not a kind of serious typical movie .. 85% of the movie filled with so much fun )

its directed by ' #stree' fame #AmarKaushik,in the lead of #AyushmanKhurrana. #Ayushman has created his own audience& he has proved his mettle. Amar Kaushik who gave hit in 2018,
in the form of Stree has brilliantly directed Bala too.

You rarely find a film which let's each character take a centre-stage, let's the movie float into a brilliant success ( especially #YamiGautam #Bhumipednekar & #JavedJaffrey's roles)

Graha Vandana - a lovely Stuti to all 9 planets. If you can understand the words used to describe the Grahas, you understand a lot of Jyotish. It covers their lineage, their personality, their svabhav and their place. Image

Really excited about the 17 authors who entered the Indian #publicdomain in 2021! Authors from all across India feature in this list, so look out languages of India... you just got richer this year! #linguisticdiversity Image
In India, the criteria for expiration of #copyright is 60 years since the death of the author, and that the work was published before their death. This year, books of authors who passed away in 1960 are coming into the public domain.

Train No.12027 - Shadabdhi Express

Train No.12027 - Shadabdhi Express from Chennai MGR Central to KSR Bangalore will shortly depart from Platform No.7.

I was sitting in the window seat allotted to me. The whole train looked almost half empty.
My seat was in the middle of the coach wherein a wooden table is fixed for the passengers' use. You'll not be able to fold the same as in other seats.

As the train was nearing Basin Bridge station, a man, aged about late 30s, walked in & occupied the aisle seat.
On the other side in the same row, 2 girls (youngsters) (probably IT employees working in Bangalore) were sitting.

Please don't mistake me. Nowadays, I observe people around me to know about people's characteristics.

@AmaHabib विस्तार से बता रहें है किसान विरोधी कानून

हां, हमे चाहिए आजादी का सूरज

नब्बे के दशक में जब मुक्तिकरण की नीति अपनाई गई थी, कम से कम तब तो कृषि पर लगे सरकारी प्रतिबंध हटा दिए जाने चाहिए थे, दुर्भाग्य से पिछले तीस वर्षों में किसी भी पार्टी की
सरकार ने ऐसा नहीं किया। इस दौर में लाखों किसानों ने आत्महत्या की। मोदी सरकार को सत्ता में आए छह साल हो चुके हैं। कभी किसान विरोधी कानून याद नहीं आये। अब, जब कोरोना संकट आया है, सरकार की तिजोरी संकट में हैं,
तब जा कर सरकार को मजबुरी में कुछ कदम उठाने पडे है। सरकार ने अनिच्छा से, अनमने भाव से मजबुरी में, कुछ कानूनों को हात लगाया हैं।
दरवाजा कुछ खुलने को हैं। (अभी तक पूरी तरह से नहीं खोला गया) कि तुरंत तथाकथित वामपंथी दंगा करने लगे। डर का माहौल बनाया जा रहा है कि 'गब्बरसिंह आ जायेगा'।

1-It is #Saturday!

Time to understand and appreciate one of the most #Mystical #Planets - #Saturn!

Let’s dwell upon an event

..which at any given point of time

..close to 20 to 25% people in the #Zodiac circle go through – the #SadeSati! (1/19)

2-Everyone in #India knows, that one of the most important way through which #Saturn influences our lives is through #SadeSati

#SadeSati means a period of Seven –and-a-half years in #Hindi.

In the #Gujrati community it is called #Panoti. (2/19)

3-And though none of the standard classical texts of #VedicAstrology talk about it

..millions of Indians are paying their #Astrologers some way or the other – about matters relating to #SadeSati

What is the #Astrological #Event behind the #SadeSati?! (3/19)

1. Next 21 tweets on #Sikh tradition's relationship with different languages & scripts in Indic core & extended MidEast/Mongol/Tibet/E.Asian family.

What were the cultural undercurrents of the first Sikh movement towards Indicization?

What derailed this?

What about the future?
2. #Sikh Guru Angad ji pioneered the re-introduction of Indic script in Punjab. Rolled back imposition of modified-Arabic script.

#Gurmukhi is derived from Sharada script of #Kashmiri Hindus. Related to far flung Tocharian script. Is only surviving member of that script-family.
3. #Sindhis, Hindus from #NWFP & Hinglaaj (present-day #Balochistan), + today's #Kashmiri Hindus' Indic scripts have lost currency. Most now use modified-Arabic script.

These groups should consider adopting #Gurmukhi as script for their languages as they reclaim their identity.
