Today is 60th year of celebration of Operation Vijay

Operation Vijay (1961) was the successful operation conducted by Indian Armed Forces to end 450 years of #Portuguese’ colonial rule in #Goa
#GoaLiberationDay.
When the Portuguese refused to give up control of the state in 1947 India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, started trying different non-violent ways to resolve the issue. But all his efforts of peaceful and diplomatic negotiations were rendered useless. #GoaLiberationDay
In 1955, he imposed an economic blockade on #Goa but even that did not deter the #Portuguese power to leave the #Indian soil. So in 1961, Mr Nehru decided that there was no alternative option left for military intervention.

1. 26/11 is a dark day in the history of our country. Not only is it a terrifying reminder of the 3day long siege of #India ‘s economic centre with the loss of 450 innocent lives but also a grim reminder of the impotency of the UPA as 5 terrorists wrecked havoc on #Mumbai
2. It’s a reminder of the pusillanimity of the UPA as they sent dossier after dossier instead of a crack down on #PakistanFundedTerror in the face of the most gruesome terror attack on Indian soil in the 21st century. This while the world stood by us in our horror.
3. It’s a reminder of the treachery of the #Congress as it tried to shift the blame of #IslamistTerror on the #RSS and pass it off as something it was not. A reminder of their effort to incriminate the docile & silent majority of this nation & let #TerrorStatePakistan get away.

As we enter the year Veer Nirvan Samvant 2548, wishing u all a #HappyNewYear! 💐

"Nutan Varsh Abhinandan"

We have heard of Vikram Samvat, Saka era, but how many #Indians know of one of the oldest calender system called Vir/Veer Nirvan Samvat?
Vir Nirvan Samvat is a calendar era beginning on 7th Oct 527 BCE. It commemorates Nirvan of Mahavir swami, the 24th #Jain Tirthankar. It is one of the oldest system of chronological reckoning which is still used by #Jains. On 21st Oct 1974, 2500th Nirvan Mahotsav was celebrated.
The earliest text to mention 527 BCE as the year of Lord Vardhaman Mahaveer's Nirvan is Yati Vrishabha's 'Tiloya Pannatti' (6th century CE). The relationship between the Veer & Saka era is given in 'Titthogali Painnaya' and 'Dhavalaa' by Acharya Virasena.

Why didn't @sardesairajdeep ask #BillGates why he uses his #privatejets if [alleged] #ClimateCrisis is such a concern? Why didn't #RajdeepSardesai ask this #NeoColonist #creep about all the #controversy he is immersed in?

"Aarif Khan was the nom de guerre of a local militant"

“We had to implement the #Shariah, the #Taliban & #AlQaeda way.”

This is the article for which #AasifSultan was taken to jail. Far from a #journalistic circus - it was highlight of a freedom struggle in #Kashmir.....

1/n.
..which might be categorized as a '#TerrorSpeech' issue.

It is certainly not the #Western '#FreedomOfExpression'. The #Kashmiri expressions was not constructed that way, with Western norms.

The website is already down, so I wanted to take some snaps.
#BurhanWani
#Kashmir
2/n
Is there a chance for this article not to attract state's wrath? By that word, I mean the #IndianState.

To all #Indians out there participating in the #FreeAasifSultan hashtag, do you respect our existence?

If you don't, what does your #solidarity, or mockery - stand for?

3/n.

Interesting: remnants of the anti-Taliban forces in Baghlan had insider help. Given that much of the collapse came from side-switching because US pulled away logistics and air support that made the Afghan army function, does leave open the possibility they can switch right back.
Would require Western assistance to make the resistance viable, of course, and this will not be happening for a while, so long as the Taliban has thousands of our people as hostages in Kabul.
The US continues seemingly running down the clock on the SIVs, as it has done for many months

#Vedic texts suggest that #Hindus originally did not worship idols and build #temples, and it is quite likely that both Hindus and #Buddhists got the idea from the #Greeks.
#India accounted for 33% of the #World economy in AD 1.
#China's share was 26% of World GDP.
India was by far the World's economic superpower at that time.
#Indians sold textiles, spices and demanded precious metals in payment.
Not a year passed in which #India did not take 50 million sesterces away from #Rome.

Am seeing more and more assault on India, Hindus & Indic people (hit jobs by Western news media etc aided by vulturous Indian journos & writers)

Suffice it to say - #Hinduism is the only remaining ancient counter polyculture to the massive monoculturing & theism of the world
Looks like many forces do not like it or want it to prevail.
From the #Ghazwa-e-Hind forces to the #Leftists to the #whitesupremacists #abrahamics we are facing massive assaults.
And deracinated #Indians people who are cultural illiterates contribute more to such assaults!
But civilisational continuity exists in only one region of the world. It's #India. Nowhere else. Not even Japan can claim it.

It's us #Hindus.

#Hinduism is the only living #pagan #pluralist tradition and as is it must be preserved by the world, not actively destroyed.

Listen up, #India, #Indians, @MoHFW, @Drharshvardhan, @NITIAayog, #journalists, #TVAnchors, #Pundits,
if ther's one TV interview worth watching it is this one by @fayedsouza and @PSampathkumarMD.
Priya is quiet, calm rational, scientific, unequivocal
her message in bullet points, (I've been arguing these same points on twitter):
1. Hospital admission should only be for those needing Intensive care or assisted ventilation of some kind.
2. Use clinical and common sense to judge severity, oxymeters are not vital.
3. A CT Chest is an irrelevance in most cases. Diagnostically it offers little and it DOES NOT determine treatment or prognosis.
4. Plasma and remdesivir DO NOT SAVE Lives. Dexamethasone does.
5. Chasing after them may actually be causing harm.

Lately I have been talking to some students and friends about various places to look for academic positions. Because there is no ONE-FOR-ALL space to find opportunities, here is a thread summarizing the ones I know of 1/34 #AcademicTwitter #phdchat #phd #internationalPhD
Having said that, I must emphasize that this #database is skewed towards #Asians and #Indians (and other #internationals) to study in #EU #UK or #USA in general and is certainly not exhaustive. I have no info. on #NSF grants for example or grants within India. 2/34
Most importantly, I’m hoping this thread helps #colouredwomeninSTEM & #WomeninSTEM, please feel free to RT. And as a #biologist, I am more aware of databases in #ecology, #wildlife, #evolution and #conservation circles, feel free to add more and share. Let’s dive right in! 3/34

THREAD 22 of writing against the 🪖-coup. It might be on emotional shock and feeling numb. It might be on the suffering of others. It might be on a new advocacy group - or on all of the above. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovementMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar Artist: Kuekool
1. This post by #Rohingya #activist @Ali_Jinnah_222 captures two things I want to write about today: being at a loss of words in regard to one’s own feelings - and being in #solidarity with the suffering of others. #March4Coup #CivilDisobedienceMovement
2. All of my research in #Myanmar has been with/about ethnic #minorities. My interlocutors are #Muslims and #Hindus locally referred to as “Burmese #Indians”. All of my research assistants happen to be #Kachin #Christians. I have #Chin friends, too

Once we pass the matriculation exams, it's only by chance that we pick up history books to read. Often our knowledge of history as adults is only the knowledge given to us by our school books and teachers. What if someone chooses to manipulate it at that point!
Today it's a well-known fact that #Indian #history has not been written by #Indians. At best, they were brown sahibs instead of the white ones who choose what we would learn about our history & what we won't. Every few months some strange manipulation of history comes to light!
How about those #NCERT books? What would you say about the most trusted books that are often used by students preparing for #UPSC? Well, you know the answer, even if you choose not to state the fact in public. They are biased, aren't they?

This is right.

In the 1906 Zulu 'rebellion' (as the #British called it) in South Africa, Gandhi had appealed to #Indians community in South Africa to form 'Indian Ambulance Corps'. Image
(2)
The British were glad to see Gandhi's initiative, since the 'Whites weren't willing to nurse the wounded Zulus'. Image
(3)
Gandhi himself wrote that he was appointed as Sgt. Major of the 'Indian Ambulance Corps', which served for 6 weeks. Image
