بٹلر پیلس (لکھنؤ، بھارت)
Butler Palace (Lukhnow, India)__1915
Groundbreaking: 1st Feb. 1915
ہریالی کے بیچوں بیچ کھڑا، ماہر تعمیرات سردار ہیراسنگھ کا تعمیراتی جنون جو کبھی تہلکہ مچانے والا ایک محل تھا آج وقت کے خاموش ہاتھوں خستہ حالی کاشاہکار!
1915 میں اودھ کے ڈپٹی کمشنر سپنسر ہارکورٹ بٹلر (DC Spencer Harcourt Butler) کے لیے محمود آباد کےمہاراج محمد علی محمد نے تعمیر کروایا. یہ محل برطانوی رہائش گاہ اور پھر کنگ محمودآباد کے وارث کی ذاتی ملکیت کےطور پر کام کرتاتھا.
نوابوں کا شہر، تحریک آزادی 1857 کے آغاز کا شہر اور اردو
کے مسکن کے حوالوں سے پہچانے جانے والے شہر لکھنؤ میں بعض یادگاریں ایسی بھی ہیں جنہیں زیادہ پذیرائی نہیں ملی حالانکہ وہ تاریخی ورثہ کہلانے کی مستحق ہیں۔ بٹلر پیلس لکھنؤ میں ایک ایسی ہی یادگار ھے۔
کبھی بٹلر پیلس منشیات کے عادی افراد کے گھر کے طور پر استعمال ھوا،

What #Savarkar got was not a 'stipend' or 'pension,' as Congress alleged, but an allowance from the British Raj. Others who got such an allowance from the British Raj were the Bose brothers Subhas & Sarat Chandra, Mahatma Gandhi & so many other Indian freedom fighters. A small 🧵
When the #British imprisoned #Indians or held them as detenus or internees, usually in cases where there were no charges & no trials (as when Savarkar was interned in Ratnagiri from 1924 to 1937), they paid a monthly allowance to them for 'loss of income' so they (in terms of..
food etc) and/or their families could maintain themselves. Govt statue allowed them to have money from the public purse for this purpose. When the Raj, in the early 1930s, decided to drastically cut these allowances, Subhas Chandra Bose...

How fake news has been deployed by the Pak and Islamists in #Leicester to generate the victim-hood narrative, while simultaneously unleashing violence on others over the past few weeks.

Leicester: A case study
First Claim: The narrative of how ‘Racist Hindus’ provoking Muslims, was widely shared on social media by several Islamist handles.

Fact: Videos circulated on social media were of a mob shouting ‘Allah hu Akbar’.

(2/n)
Second Claim: Racist Hindu mob raised anti-Islam slogans on streets was widely shared by Islamists & local media (without any evidence).

Fact: Mob was shouting slogans of ‘Vande Mataram’ & ‘Jai Shri Ram’ to protest the violence against them, indicating no communal angle.

1. My #SamarkandSummit orientalist🧵on its toponym and etymology. Incorrect is #Wikipedia's #Samarkand etymon entry and false analogy to #Tashkent. Both #Samarkand, like neighbouring #Bukhara, remain extensively debated in eastern #MiddleIranian #philology.

#Indian #CEMENT Stocks: When #NARRATIVE turns 180 deg SOUTH

Trigger: CCI Investigations (This time ITS DIFFERENT)

... A thread.. You will Enjoy it... its almost "fictional"
1/ For Years starting 2012, there have been accusations that the Indian Cement Industry worked as a "Cartel" given how resilient Cement Industry Margins were despite sharply falling UTILIZATION levels - The NARRATIVE that supported lofty Valuations given resilient Cashflows
2/ In 2016, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) imposed a $800mn fine on 10 companies for fixing prices, including the Holcim units and UltraTech, but the decision has been challenged since then at the Supreme Court (SC).

@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 1. #Partition1947 counterfactuals aren't counterintuitive. #Partition ended a zero sum game among the same stale set of interlocutors conducting a dialogue of the deaf #Simla, June '45 onwards. #CabinetMissionPlan's devolution did NOT solve #India's impasse.

@tanjil_rashid_ @ZareerMasani @saliltripathi 3. To iterate: #CabinetMissionPlan was a pilot project to be reviewed decadally.

Mahadaji Shinde (1730 – 1794) was a Maratha general and Raja of Ujjain (later Gwalior). He was also the architect of Maratha revival in northern India after Panipat.
He was the youngest of five sons of Ranoji Shinde, founder of the Scindia dynasty. Mahadji came into prominence following the deaths of his older brothers in Maratha campaigns in northern India 1750-61.
Mahadji provided the muscle (and troops) for Peshwa Madhavrao I and his adviser Nana Fadnavis political ambitions.

Your trusty ‘ol #EPFO (Employees' Provident Fund Organisation) has decided that they need more #equity in their investment #portfolio. This matters because of the sheer size of the corpus at EPFO’s disposal. (1/6)
Increasing allocation to equities will allow EPFO subscribers to participate in the #stockmarket materially. The large corpus under the EPFO will also raise the demand for equity and bring in added #liquidity. This is good for #Indian investors’ equity wealth. (2/6)
Currently, the EPFO can invest between 5% to 15% of their investible deposits in equity or equity-related instruments. They want to bring this number up to 20%. (3/6)
