Most recents (24)

Days after the #CoromandelExpress tragedy, I called a friend who’s a powerloom worker from #Odisha in #Surat. He shared a passenger-list, with phone numbers. Relatives of missing folk were using it to find loved ones. I began to call random non-AC passengers. A thread 1/n
Dozens of men in their 20s and 30s from #WestBengal on the #CoromandelExpress were to take connecting trains to #Kerala, to go to work 2000-odd km from home. Most were school dropouts, construction workers, masons, painters, unskilled labourers, driven to migrate for livelihoods
Daily wages in #Kerala are considerably higher, almost Rs 800; accommodation clean; some contractors employed Bengali cooks and helpers for the workers. They could earn Rs 20,000-Rs 25,000 a month, it was a decent income, they could build assets at home.

Samay (The Time) - The Timeless time of the Vedic Ages of India

What is Samay?
What is Kal?
What is creation?
What is the origin and start of the time?

Let's find out what our timeless Vedic scriptures say about it:

#Veda #SanatanaDharma #Hinduism #Time #India… Image
1. What is Samay / Kaal / Time?

This is why I do not think much of #SubhasChandraBose

Read this thread about the brutal treatment of #Malaya #Tamils by the Japanese in building the #DeathRailway

Bose wanted to take help from the Japanese in "liberating" #India.

Why would the Japanese ever care about "liberating" India from #British rule?

The #Japanese were imperialists. They wanted to conquer all of Asia and the Pacific.

They had already annexed #Manchuria in 1931, and everyone knew about their brutal treatment of the #Chinese.

The Japanese followed this up with the #RapeOfNanjing in 1937. This was followed by the establishment of #Unit731 in the city of #Harbin in Northeast #China, scene of one of the most egregious #CrimesAgainstHumanity in history, carried out by the #ImperialJapaneseArmy

I took a bike ride service yesterday and had the fantastic experience (1st of its kind) of meeting this ambitious and dynamic powerhouse of positivity. Ms. Venkata Lakshmi L is in her 40’s and a single mother.
After her husband's death, she had no time to grieve as she had to care for her family. But, being not one of the easy giving-up types, she told me that she invested every penny from her savings into getting the bike and signed up for both services to make ends meet.

L'affaire #Dorsey

There's been a minor kerfuffle in India for the last two days since the Twitter ex-CEO, Jack Dorsey, @jack, made some statements about freedom of speech in India under #Modi.

A 🧵

#Liberals are gleefully sharing these comments as evidence of #India not being a democratic country, and defenders of the government are going into attack dog mode, as usual.

But many people on both sides are missing some key things here:

1. Dorsey didn't talk only about India. In fact, he also talked about how the #USA government tried to suppress things. As also #Turkey, #Nigeria.

2. This points to a deeper issue underlying the whole controversy: Is #FreedomOfSpeech absolute?
