A whole pandemic later we're back in India to get things ready for the Kachchh Archaeological Project, with the support of @FundacionPalarq 💫

Here's what we are up to! ⬇️ Image
Hello from the Dept of Archaeology, University of #Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram 👋

We're working here with Profs Rajesh SV and Abhayan GS, directors of the excavations at the awesome burial site of Juna Khatiya in Kachchh, Gujarat Image
The site was partially excavated between 2019-2020 - until the global lockdown stopped the ongoing work

Dozens of Early Harappan burials have been documented so far - a cemetery dating back to over 5000 years ago! Image

Is the #ShawarmaFoodPoisoning in Kerala, where a young girl lost her life and 3 others are critical and r being treated in the ICU of MIMS(owned by jihadies) a vicious and purposeful attack on our young ones by terror cells in #Kerala?
Of the 3 other kids, it is said that Image
the kidney of one has been affected and the heart of another.
Most of our ppl on the ground tell me that Goat hotels & juice bars are always full of Hindu girls.
Just a couple of months ago during utsavam(Hindu festival) in Malappuram…secular Hindus drank water melon Image
juice from a goat hotel/juice place. More than 100 of ppl suffered from food poisoning.

If all those Spit Sputtum videos being circulated won’t open your eyes …I don’t know what else will…

For those who are making fun of Kerala visiting Gujarat to study its e-governance dashboard, here is a fact check because I was one of the first to report it. Thread:
Gujarat E-Governance model was implemented during Keshubhai Patel's tenure as CM. Not Modi's. Though KP had little knowledge of technology, he was a master listener and doer. If it is good for our people, let's implement it was his motto.
During that time the entire space of e-governance stories went to the then Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu who became the CEO of a state with his vision of technology. But Andhra has connectivity till District level. It stole the limelight because Naidu was good at it.

The amount of hatred directed towards #Kerala on social medias from the other part of the country is astonishing. This could actually be dangerous for Malayalees who are living or travelling to the northern states in the coming years. (Contd)
I have been asked by a guy if Hindus were in danger in Kerala when I was in Himachal. He truly believed they were not. Repeat a lie thousand times and it becomes the truth. It is very clear why this #hatecampaign is there against Kerala.
While Kerala is far from a prefect place, we are proud about the achievements we had over the years. Whatever propaganda these people spread about Kerala, the Hindus, Christians, Muslims and others will be united and resist the communal hatred. #KeralaModel

The Central government controls who gets the permission required to operate a television channel & even what kind of content it can broadcast.

How the Centre exercises stringent control over Indian television news channels,@UmangPod explains…
Earlier this week, the government refused to renew the licence of Malayalam new channel, #MediaOne

The ban put the spotlight on the Union government’s ability to control what gets aired on television

How are the TV channels regulated? @UmangPod explains…
This isn’t the first time #MediaOne has run into trouble with the ruling dispensation.

In 2020, the news channel, along with Asianet News, was banned for 48 hours for its coverage of the riots in Delhi. @UmangPod writes

#HTNumberTheory | HT analysis suggests that measures such as lockdowns may not be necessary and can actually hurt. Here are four charts that show why

(report by @naalmot)…
#HTNumberTheory | The seven-day average of deaths at the national-level does not seem to be increasing consistently

This is simply because #Kerala has been reconciling its figures for past deaths (pre-#Omicron) on a daily basis

Read more - | by @naalmot Image
#HTNumberTheory | To be sure, governments are correct in advising caution, despite the chances of lower fatalities

This is because hospitalisations, can put huge pressure on the finances of Indian households

This is how GoI creates false narratives! There is no sign of a clear "surge" of #COVID19 cases in #Kerala, yet. Whereas, in comparison, a surge is more visible in #UttarPradesh & #Bihar whose names are conspicuously absent from the list of "emerging states of concern".
In fact, both #UttarPradesh & #Bihar are among the top 5 states with the highest growth of active cases at the moment.
I had predicted the possibility of this narrative just a couple of days back

Given my love for #travel, thought I'd compile a thread of some of the best #tourism ads I've seen over the years

Am keeping it restricted to #PrintAds, and only those by #tourismboards, whether national, state or city

Hope you enjoy it 🙂🥂 and are inspired to travel
We could warm up with #Australia's 'So Where The Bloody Hell Are You' campaign, which turned a lot of heads thanks to it's choice of wording and, of course, the stunning visuals
Politeness can be over rated, eh @Australia 🖖🏾
As far as accidental tourism ads go, #Banff in #Canada capitalized on a squirrel photobombing a couple's pic and made him their mascot, even creating a Twitter id for the little fella and featuring him in a whole set of ads

Nicely done @banfflakelouise @Canada

⚠️A larger share of new cases are among double vaccinated!
👉that's the news headlines in #Kerala today
👉See the dist. of #COVID19 cases by vax status👇
👉But, please note that
42% of total population already got 2 doses & only 29% has single dose. Remaining 28% are unvaxed.
As % of total population in each group, new incidence is still many times higher in unvaxed adults than the vaxed, & marginally higher among those with 2 dose than among those with 1 dose (that still needs explanation). This is based only on total reported infections in November

So, my story is finally out in @thecaravanindia!As part of @NFI_India's Media Fellowship, I report on the caste-ridden lives of #Theyyam practitioners in north Kerala—they perform daredevil acts in the name of worship and yet are threatened by caste norms+…
face routine public humiliation, receive less financial remuneration, even pay for costumes/jewelry from their pockets. Little has been done to support those who bear the brunt of this spectacle in the name of tradition+

Bt most imp CATCH in the case was a Kashmiri couple👇who hd created trouble during #CAA protests.

Trivia: lSlS magazine’s content ws created in Pak. 🙄
