After a long time, a story i did is making me feeling gud. I travelled to Ranchi which is trying to attract garment exporters. Right moves hav brought gud change
The story appears tomorrow in @Magazine_ET. @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87
Here's my thread:
@Magazine_ET @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87 At @ORIENTCRAFTJOBS factory in Khelgaon #Ranchi #Jharkhand Ashar, 18, is speech & hearing impaired. Grew up feeling like a burden on everyone, he conveys in signs. He now has a job. Earns Rs 9000 plus a month. Sheer pleasure seeing him work with such intensity 1/n
@Magazine_ET @smritiirani @nsitharaman @narendramodi @amitabhk87 @ORIENTCRAFTJOBS Every morning, outside the plant young women from near & faroff villages wait all day hoping to land a job. Already 2300 workers, mostly women work here. The moment i start talking to them i stoke their hope. Each has a story to tell - of poverty & their desperation for job 2/n

#ThankYouAll

Once again we have given a forecast close to the actual figure

And given constant ground reports on JHK for last 2-3 months, may be the only or among the very few pollster(s) to do so

Thank u all once again for the support that u have provided.
#Jharkhand

Take Aways

-MGB made this election purely regional without saying NO word against Modi&gained this victory

-Those who r aware of CAA/CAB/NRC back Modi&he still enjoys a grand popularity across the state

-BJP must introspect&act on the reasons behind their defeat
#Jharkhand

- The alliance with AJSU (if it was formed) would have given a different picture as the vote share of them clearly shows it

- The vote difference btw BJP and MGB is just 2% and it tells the story

Let's see how do they administer the state in coming days

1. Thousands of forest dwellers in #Jharkhand are at risk of being evicted from their lands due to failure of the state Govt. to fix issues relating to the FRA. This issue has been below the radar, so let me explain why it's imp #JharkhandAssemblyPolls bit.ly/2Pc4DYK
2. Remember the SC order in Feb bcoz which put over 1 million Adivasis & other forest dwellers at risk of eviction? Among the states which were asked to respond to that order was the state of #Jharkhand, which is going to polls today. bit.ly/2Pc4DYK
3. In mid-July, Jharkhand filed an affidavit in SC stating that over 16k forest rights claims were rejected by Gram Sabhas. Assuming rights of at least 4 were affected by 1 claim, then rights of 64,000 forest dwellers were denied. bit.ly/2Pc4DYK #JharkhandElection2019

🇮🇳 #Inde : investi aujourd'hui pour son deuxième mandat, @narendramodi souhaite mettre en place des réformes économiques et sociales qui feraient de lui le Reagan indien. reuters.com/article/us-ind…
🇮🇳 Cette focalisation sur les enjeux économiques et sociaux aux dépends des enjeux identitaires, si elle se confirme dans les mois à venir, pourrait créer des tensions au sein de la vaste famille des nationalistes hindous, le #SanghParivar. A suivre donc.
🇮🇳 Le nouveau cabinet de @narendramodi compte 58 membres. L'entrée la plus importante est celle de l'ancien dirigeant du @BJP4India @AmitShah au poste de ministre de l'Intérieur. Cet organisateur de génie a largement contribué aux victoires de #Modi. business-standard.com/article/politi…

1/ The SC may have given it a green light, but #AadhaarFail TERROR continues unabated in #Jharkhand.

Exclusion, disruption, and disempowerment is what Aadhaar has brought to the lives of the Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Groups. Case studies from a recently concluded survey.
2/ A census of all PVTG households was conducted in 2 blocks, Manika & Satbarwa, in Palamu district. Despite a small sample, we encountered a plethora of #AadhaarFail issues.

If you still think Aadhaar is "fixing-up" welfare, please follow. Select survey findings appended.
3/ Sukni Devi could not enrol for an #AadhaarFail as she is blind.

About a year ago, she stopped receiving her pensions.

Though I am really glad that #arsenic contamination of #groundwater in India, and specially #WestBengal is getting the attention it deserves, there is a major issue that needs wider discussion.
There is a simplistic argument that arsenic naturally occurs in the #Gangetic belt, the author uses the term “#geological curse”. If this is the case, why is heavy #arsenic contamination being reported from #Jharkhand and #Chattisgarh in Central India?
A possible answer to that may be traced to this MIT paper that was published in @NatureGeosci on #anthropogenic influence on #groundwater #arsenic contamination in #Bangladesh nature.com/articles/ngeo6…

After getting a good rap on the knuckles by editors for being a lazy lurker on social media, here's course correction. I am now doing a thread of all my reportage in 2018. (@sree and @prempanicker had encouraged me to do this many years ago 🙈) Please read and share.
While urbanisation is a global trend, villagers around #Ahmedabad don't want to live in cities. Since 2012, #Gujarat government has encouraged 12 cities to swallow up some 800 villages. And now, most of them are resisting. A take on the 'Gujarat Model'.
