1. Bajaj Allianz has a new ad campaign about #LGBTQ people in India. Some questions:

- Have same-sex couples applied to be each other's nominee & listed spouse for insurance at Bajaj Allianz & has your company accepted those applications?
#IndependenceDayIndia #PyaarKiAzaadi
2- Do your policies cover surgery & post surgery care for trans people?

3- Any other specific insurance policy features from your company which help India's queer community access diff types of insurance?

#Section377
4. My guess is that the issue here is: Whether or not LGBTQ people can marry in India, which they currently can't. This is used to justify financial discrimination.

5. But hey, afaik, unmarried straight people who live-in/co-habit are allowed to access some same services.

So...

If you are a Hindu, then, this story is for you. After reading this thread, you will feel proud to be born in India & sympathise with those who couldn’t return back during Partition. (Long Thread) @Aabhas24 @ARanganathan72

@Aabhas24 @ARanganathan72 This is the story of Jogendra Nath Mandal. He was one of the Founding Fathers of Pakistan. Wait, what? Yes. He was a Bengali, and a Hindu ( Dalit ). He was subjected to vehement caste discrimination as he belonged to the untouchable “Namasudra Community.” #BatlaHouse

BR Ambedkar, the father of Indian Constitution, would not have made it to the Constituent Assembly had it not been for Mandal. The @INCIndia was opposed to getting Ambedkar elected. #MissionMangal @arifmohdkha

My tribute to my unsung Hero - So what if you are not decorated ...#IndependenceDayIndia @majorgauravarya @MajorPoonia @megirish2001 @manhasvikas41
@MajDPSingh
When the winds were blowing beneath your face, your body was sweaty but with smile & grace .
The beautiful valley was serene & poise , but for you it was only chaos & noise .
Your heart went out for their poverty & filled with regret, but for them you were the target . (2)
You ran & chased them out , the duty couldn’t be fulfilled without .
You gave it a shot to save them people, you always blew the humanitarian bugle .
You came home sleeping deep, but your duties couldn’t let me weep . (3)

I don't know who created this funny Whatsapp forward that's spread like wildfire amongst people from #Kalimpong. But it has made me start a thread to share a few things you might not know about how my hometown in the hills celebrates our #IndependenceDay #FitinAugust #PondaAugus
While the rest of the country celebrates our #IndependenceDay on the 15th of August, we #Kalimpong folks need 3 WHOLE DAYS! If you gotta party, party like you mean it!

#India doesn’t need to earn my affection by being flawless and perfect. Her Every imperfection, every blemish is mine. All her failures are mine. No, I am proud of my India. Never will I question the glory of the land which gave me birth, home and love #IndependenceDayIndia
If her face carries the ugly wounds of the past, I allowed her to suffer under slavery. I failed her as a son. If there is misgovernance, I chose wrong people to rule. If there’s poverty, we must introspect on the leaders we made custodian to the nation for decades.
Every time, she stumbles, I stand apart, brush dust off my clothes and mock her. I laugh at her struggle, mocking - See, so many poor; see so much corruption, see so much dirt and garbage. The world mocks at me. When the mother is belittled, the child loses all respect.

Celebrating 49 years of @isro, in this special take on #SpaceInAMinute, we take a look at what the future holds for our nation's space program.
Riding on the success of major past orbiter missions like #Chandrayaan, @MarsOrbiter and #AstroSat, @isro is gearing towards new technologies and exciting future missions. Let's take a look!
First up is Chandrayaan-2. Launching early next year, the mission consists of a lunar orbiter, a soft-landing close to the south pole, and a six-wheeled rover. If successful, India will establish itself as Earth's 4th nation to achieve a soft-landing on the #Moon.
