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.

Mohan singh suner,BSF jawan posted in Tripura got martyred while fighting with terrorist on 31st Dec 1992
Family of 3 earning mere 700₹ a day by doing labour jobs n living in poverty
Cont.. Image
Goverment didn't bothered much about the (Rajubai) Widow of shaheed mohan Singh,
Youngsters of Village saw the struggle and decided to contribute her by raising funds And raised 11 lakh₹
And renovated the old house into brand new one (below pic)👇
@MajorPoonia @True_Shrotriya ImageImage
Most interesting part is they all tied rakhi on rakshabandhan from the Widow of Shaheed MS. And gifted the house to her by
laying their hands on ground and askng her to step on hands and do the grah pravesh of her newly made home.

1/ “I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for that reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” - James Baldwin

Reflections on #4thofJuly2020

There is an attempt to cultivate fear that the movement pressing for racial justice,
2/ trying to fix our justice system, & remove symbols that reinforce white supremacy is REALLY trying to "destroy America" or erase its history or past. Fear is a powerful force. It stifles imagination, raises defenses & prohibits empathy. It causes us to hear things not there.
3/ When we say "systemic racism" or "America's original sin" or critique the paradoxically themed "Independence Day", other things are heard. Here's a quick rundown.

I recently had a conversation with a self described "middle aged, very conservative white guy."

Everything created by people is imperfect, including America. But because something cannot be perfected does not mean we should not cherish it and strive together to make it better. #independenceday2020 @TPPF 1/5
The miracle of #IndependenceDay is that a group of people, many of them slaveholders, were able to agree upon this universal statement: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal... 2/5
...that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." These words, from the #DeclarationOfIndependence allowed Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to powerfully claim: 3/5

As the traditions of the United States matured over the course of the nineteenth century, presidential administrations celebrated the Fourth of July in different ways. 2/4

In 1801, President Jefferson began a tradition of public receptions at the Executive Mansion that endured until after the Civil War. The President’s House was opened to the public, and the State Dining Room was filled with punch bowls and plates of sweets for all to enjoy. 3/4

If you're looking for a reminder of who America is this #FourthofJuly, I highly recommend @PadmaLakshmi's show Taste the Nation. The thoughtful, loving profiles of 10 communities, from the Gullah Geechee to Native Americans to Mexicans, reflect our true strength--our diversity.
Not only does it cover the history of #immigration, both by choice and against one's will, it explores #ClimateChange, the challenges of being bi/multiracial, manifestations of racism, and more, all through the lens of food.
And of course, the food looks amazing. (Side note: someone should make a compilation of Padma's "oh my god" reaction shots.) The episode on the struggles of Thai women of Las Vegas had me crying and drooling at the same time.
