We’ve all been to the #Charminar ,but many don’t know that apart from being the foundation of Hyd,it has designs of pineapples/squirrels in it, and also a mosque on the 2nd floor,which today is inaccessible. A thread on our city's most imp monument (pic is of mosque) #History Image
In 1591, Mohd Quli Qutb Shah, the 5th king of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, decided to move out of the Golconda fort and build a new city outside. That city was to be Hyderabad, the foundational monument for which is the Charminar. #Hyderabad #History #Charminar
We've all heard of the story of Bhagmati that’s associated with Hyderabad's foundational history (will post on it in a separate thread later, please don’t discuss here), but not many know that the city also has a story of a (bubonic) plague at its very roots, and #History

Corruption of #Telangana #KCR govt peaks while fight against corona ebbs below abysmal pit

Few contrasting statistics below

Numbers on d face of it don't lie, but spin abt no.s on d back of it can be made to lie blatantly

tht is what #Media savvy & fact opaque machinery being nurtured by #KTR is doing in #Telangana with impunity

Brute majority in assembly with 3.5 yrs term remaining is d spine behind tht open arrogance from father & callous glaring ignorance from son below

Legendary #KCR talked abt crushng #Covid_19 in #Telangana in turn #COVID19 is cruising its way into #Hyderabad households much faster with a mind-blowng positivity rate next to none nationally to break into d top 4 position in active #COVID cases in no time #TelanganaCovidFailure

Travelling through #India you can't miss such boulder heaps...

Think of Hampi's ruins (below) or Sravanabelagola (Karnataka), or Mt Abu (Rajasthan)?

#DidYouKnow, such isolated hill/ridge features that jut out from the surrounding plains are called #inselbergs?

#Geo thread/ Geology: inselberg formation at Hampi, Karnataka, India
Derived from German words meaning 'island mountain', #inselbergs are residual features that form across climatic zones.

Yet are most abundant in tropical regions with granite-gneiss outcrops, like those on the cratons across India, as also in the zones marked BCG, CGC, and SGT. Map in the publication, The Indian Peninsula: Geomorphic Lan
Debates rage on how #inselbergs formed, yet most concede they are the result of weathering (breaking down of rocks at site) and erosion (transport of weathered material).

In #India, insolation (heat from sun's rays), rainwater, and rivers have shaped landscapes for millennia. Hampi's boulder inselbergs with the river Tungabhadra snakin

#Hyderabad based doctor succumbs to #COVID19. First doctor from #Telangana to lose life to virus. On 16th he was admitted to KIMS hospital with high fever. He was tested for #covid& when results came positive, he was shifted to Gandhi, 2days later he passed away. #TelanganaModel
The SHOCKING part is, the date of death is 22nd June, TODAY. TIME of death is 4:23pm. How could the staff at #GandhiHospital declare a death about today evening in the afternoon itself? Someone needs to answer the family at least. The way things are being handled is scary.
This doctor was only 42 yr old!! A general physician who used to run a private clinic at Khairatabad area. Hope the family finds strength to cope up with this huge loss. #FrontLineWarrior #TelanganaCovidFailure #Covid_19

Many people who are coming to #Hyderabad through #VandeBharatMissionphase3 are in big confusion & in a panic about Quarantine and other things they will phase at Hyderabad Airport. To understand I will share my experience here with you so that all of you can get an idea. 1/n
I arrived on 19 June at @RGIAHyd from Moscow. During your journey, At departure Aiport, you will be screened before the language/Boarding pass issue counter, once boarding pass issued you will proceed to other counter ie. Security check, Emigration, etc. the same as earlier. 2/n
Now at the boarding gate, it allowed only 10 people to board in a gap so it will take a long time for the boarding of all. Once you board the flight you will found some packed food items (sandwich, cake, snacks, water & patanjali juice🤣yes) also PPE kit placed on your seat.3/n

Today's history lesson is about our language. In Hyderabad and the Deccan, people speak in Dakhni, which today is only a spoken language. Words like Kaiku, Nakko, Hao, Manje, Hao-ki etc are imports from Marathi, Kannada and Telugu. A thread on Dakhni.
#Hyderabad #History
Nakko, Kaiku and Hallu (in pic) are 3 commonly used Dakhni words(also called Dakhni Urdu) that we Hyderabadis use in our speech.“Manje/Minjhe” is used by Dakhni speakers in other parts of the Deccan (like Karnataka/MH). FYI Manje in Urdu also refers to a pre-wedding ritual.
“Hyderabadi Hindi” is what north Indians wrongly call Dakhni. Please, DON'T call it Hindi. Many Urdu speakers also mistake it for a form of localized Urdu, which, again, is incorrect. Words like “Haula” (mad), “Hau” (yes) and others, are imports from Marathi, Kannada and Telugu.

#Jalgaon and #Solapur have a worrisome CFR - 10.9% & 7.7% respectively

Next 12 districts make up 4% of all cases

#Agra has a high CFR - 9.4%

Hope that we can get the case fatality ratio down to near zero!

#Nehru failed #JammuKashmir & so did #SardarPatel. Abuse me, troll me but I'm certain(with facts,of course) that Patel played second fiddle when it came to J&K

For long, a propaganda has been carved to portray #Maharaja in a bad light by #Delhi
I'll prove my assertion

1. When GG Lord Mountbatten met #Maharaja in June 1947, he asked the latter to accede to either #India or #Pak but also gave a clear hint that if #Maharaja decided to accede with #Pak, it'll not be treated as an unfriendly act by the STATES DEPTT(and in turn, Patel)
2 Remember, this was also the time when #Gilgit lease was terminated. Locals in cahoots with their British masters mounted trouble in #Gilgit. #Mountbatten knew this. Patel again, didn't do anything. He was too putting his weight behind #Abdullah, who was indifferent to accession

For sometime now, liberals in #Pakistan have been peddling the demise of Two Nation Theory that provides the basis of #Pakistani statehood.

One of them is an obtuse physicist Pervez Hoodboy whose pseudo philosophy deems the 1971 secession of East Pakistan as cause.

This proposition especially proves its own intellectually bankrupt, when its made while India is being ruled by #hindu nationalist #BJP.

Who’ve passed genocidal CAA & NRC laws to cancel citizenships of millions of #Indian #Muslims & when 8 million #Kashmiris are under siege.

Hoodboy claims that today’s Pakistan is only half the country envisioned by our founding fathers, therefore Two Nation Theory is dead.

Besides BJP’s #hindu nationalism itself proving the Two Nation Theory, let’s consider how it influenced Bengal’s struggle for independence.

Pink not Red?

That leads us right back to India through Mylan, the EpiPen manufacturer who's product just happens to turn into Pink #Adrenochrome. Yes you read that right.

Any idea on how to transport Adrenochrome undetected through customs? Asking for a friend....


But me thinks she's about as deep-state as they come.

Sir @HYDTP @CYBTRAFFIC to encourage citizens/commuters, would you be interested in conducting weekly/monthly contests on traffic/RTO rules & regulations? Where they will be asked to identify the pictures of the symbols of the rules, like ‘No overtaking’, ‘lane driving’ ..
... ‘school zone’ ‘White/yellow/broken lines on the road’ etc… (Sharing the same in the thread)…
From the correct answers, one will be picked randomly, and be rewarded.
(1) two tickets for a movie; of course, one ticket will make him go alone to the movie ;-) ....
... (2) or any gift voucher etc…
I think, you can use the money collected from e-challan for this 
This might help a little awareness for few at least.
You want to try this on all three social media platforms.
Also, you may want to try on tier 2 cities of #Telangana later...
