India is a veritable #TowerofBabel, with more than two dozen official languages and hundreds of dialects.

This has caused lots of tension because everyone wants to preserve their culture. There's also the feeling that there should be some link language to connect the whole.
For a long time, #English was the link language, but self-styled nationalists, especially from the ruling #BJP, felt this was a betrayal of "Indian" values.

So they kept pushing for the use of #Hindi as the #NationalLanguage.

But Hindi is not even spoken by a majority (>50%) of Indians. It is merely spoken by the most Indians.

So people of other ethnicities worry that under Hindi domination, their languages would disappear.

A three-language formula was suggested as far back as the 1960s.

In #Karnataka , demand for #TwoLanguagePolicy in education is not a new thing even in 1968 there were calls to not to implement #ThreeLanguagePolicy

People just love to lay the blame squarely on #Biharis. Let me show you an example of what 'abba-jabba-dabba' method actually means. Let's take recent #Karnataka elections for an example.
Bommai renovated and restored the sugar factory in Mandya which had been stopped for decades. BJP went down to the 3rd place. @BJP4India also lost Yadagiri, Haveri, and Chikmagalur constituencies that have new medical colleges now.
Try airports - @BJP4India lost in Hassan which has permission for the new airport. Shimoga Rural where a new airport has been built was also lost by BJP. So airports also don't work like factories & medical colleges.

@BCNagesh_bjp has lost his reelection campaign. It's a relief. Why? Watch this documentary by @DeutscheWelle: & read this thread to appreciate implications were Nagesh back in power.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle As a core member of @BJP4India & @RSSorg, & more particularly as the Education Minister of Karnataka under @BSBommai as @CMofKarnataka, Nagesh piloted one of the most devastating attacks on history, culture & literature in the state.
@BCNagesh_bjp @DeutscheWelle @BJP4India @RSSorg @BSBommai @CMofKarnataka He aggressively manipulated school texts and forced kids to read RSS trash. He was essentially pushing to place several books that are found in a bookstore next to my office. Image

Not complicated. Many factors but comes down to Hindu unity. Dharmic unity's point is to defend pluralism, yet to sustain it - it has to be rooted in dignity, opportunity, mobility. Our Gods overlap but some of us want to be in watertight compartments.
#DharmaSangathan #Karnataka Image
Beyond creating some awareness in all sincerity, there is no point bemoaning it. Socio-econ trends vary from country to country but they aren’t completely unique either. Here too, it will play out well over time. Modernity suits Dharmic values/polities in a way feudalism doesn’t.
Whenever BJP seems more secure, certain type surfaces saying X and Y same, Hindu unity meaningless, first remove quotas etc.

But with INC get more caste *and* religious quotas. If you want to vote your caste etc, fine. If you want to vote as a Hindu, please do not fool yourself.

The #KarnatakaElectionResults reminds me of few things @jsaideepak said at Karnavati Literature & Film Festival -
Thread 🧵

1. Our destinies, our interest, our Hindu Hith, everything is tied to one political option, which was not the case in 50s, 60s and 70s because cultural
organisations were equally investing on the Congress and on the BJP at that time. That is the strategy of other communities and it makes sense because whoever comes to power, the 1st thing they say is "Hum Minorities ke liye itna pesa dete hai". Everybody is forced to say that.
But it is not the same compulsion for every Government to say that "Humne Hinduo ke liye itna kiya hai".

2. There is no guarantee that a particular political party will stay in power forever and #Karnataka is the current example. Which is why, it makes much more sense to invest

It's now 12.21 pm, and the #KarnatakaElectionResults are firming up.

#CongressParty is leading in 124/224 seats, and #BJP is leading in 70, according to the #ECI website.

Whatever horse trading happens now, it is clear that this is a humiliating defeat for #PMModi

#Modi put his personal prestige on the line and addressed several mega rallies in Karnataka. The roads of Bangalore were closed off for several days so that Modi could do his roadshows.

Given all that, this is a huge #flop

Modi's image has taken a beating.

What this tells us is that:

Modi cannot make up for lousy governance.

The #doubleenginesarkara has failed #Karnataka

Other states may have doubts about enlisting Modi's help when their turn comes.

The people of #Karnataka have decided to give the mandate to #Congress party to Govern the state for the next 5 years.

Higher voter turnout will advantage the party even further.

#Women #Youth #Lingayats and socially marginalized classes are favoring Congress. Image
The fight in Bagalkot District is largely Congress versus BJP in the 7 constituencies - Mudhol (SC), Terdal, Jamkhandi, Bilgi, Badami, Bagalkot and Hungund.

The #Congress wave is strong here. The projection of 5 seats for Congress out of 7 is a new high Image
Five of the constituencies in the district are dominated by Marathas, while Lingayats form a majority in most of the 13 remaining constituencies.

The tectonic shift of the Lingayat voter base from BJP to #Congress is responsible for that Party to gain from a region. Image

#Thread on how the #Foundation Stones & #Modus Operandi for dairy farmers of #Gujarat, who could eventually control not just Karnataka's Pride #Nandini but India's Entire #Dairy Industry

Crystal Ball Gazing into the future!!
1) Amul Enters a mkt
2) Jul-21: Union govt formed Min of Cooperation under #AmitShah
3) Dec-22: Amendments are made to the Multi-State Co-op Societies Act, allowing State Milk Coops to Merge
4) Dec-22: Amit Shah spoke of a possible #Amul #Nandini Merger
However (contd)
....While there is "No Merger on the cards", nothing stops the Elected Govt of Karnataka & Gujarat to merge #Amul & #Nandini since the Amendments to the Multi-State Co-op Societies Act are cast in stone (lets dig in)

Congress promise to ban #BajrangDal is not new. But it did not begin in 2008 with Mumbai attacks. It began much before in 2000 when Vajpayee was in power. At least 9 churches in South India were bombed with media & missionaries squarely blaming it on Hindus. 1/5 ImageImage
The plan was to blame it on Hindus and declare them terrorists. When govt cracked open the case and found a Pakistan linked Islamic organisation called Deendar E Anjuman behind it, the plan failed. 2/5 Image
Congress and their foreign handlers did not give up. With UPA in power, they got emboldened and tried to create Hindu Terrorism on a grand scale using corrupt people in intelligence & Pakistani collaborators. This time brave Mumbai policeman Tukaram Omble foiled the plan. 3/5 ImageImage
