Aren't we a cricket-mad country? Does any other sport come close when it comes to fans going nuts? Nopes.

Or so I thought, until I found myself in Kochi last evening, armed with a ticket to watch the #ISL opener between Kerala Blasters & East Bengal.


I was told the Kerala Blasters fandom is a mad one. But how mad can it even be, I thought.

What I was about to experience is crazy. Managed to get a car pass -- thankfully -- and waded through this chanting crowd.

I still don't quite understand in totality what #Manjappada exactly means. Loosely translated, it apparently refers to the "Yellow Army".

Wow... which team wouldn't like a fan base like this. It's difficult to describe what I saw.

Reports say that it could take place by Mid-October! Thus, this project:โž• Image
I would like to make a rundown on the 289 Single-Member Districts that compose part of the Lower House of the Japanese Diet.

Let's see the conditions of each district, the candidates & how the Japanese media & history see the race. Join me and follow along! In for a long ride๐ŸŽข

All in with the 289 districts. Let's do it for fun and in order to learn more (myself included) about JP politics.

Please don't hesitate to add info, point out mistakes or anything you want! #JapanPolitics

With #petrol hovering around โ‚น100, there are lots of discussions on how much #centre & states are making off one litre. As per one notice by @BJP4Keralam, Centre makes โ‚น19 whereas #Kerala makes โ‚น37 as taxes off one litre.

Being from the industry, I thought of putting up (1/5)
the taxes as detailed in here.
Petrol price is โ‚น 37.31 at #Kochi 2day. Total Excise Dty is โ‚น32.9 (Basic โ‚น1.4, Addn โ‚น18, Special Addn โ‚น11 & Agri Cess โ‚น2.5). #Kerala tax is โ‚น24 (30.08% Vat+1% add Vat+ โ‚น1 cess).Dlr commission is โ‚น 3.8 & hence (2/5)
final price โ‚น98.01. Of excise, all taxes other than basic excise duty are exempt from the divisible pool. 41% of basic excise duty of โ‚น1.4, ie 57 paisa is shared with state governments. Hence, as per my calculation, for every litre of petrol sold in #Kerala, #India gets (3/5)

Over the past 4 months, weโ€™ve conducted Mastermind Kerala 1.0 over Zoom.

One of the topics chosen in the final heat of the event was this: Movie Theatres in Kerala.

Hereโ€™s a thread on interesting info I found while setting these questions.

#Malayalamcinema #Malayalamfilms
1. The first permanent movie theatre in #Kerala was set up in #Thrissur by Kattookkaran Varunny Joseph (as Jos Bioscope Projections), following his bioscope shows at #ThrissurPooram. It exists today as Jos Theatre in the heart of the city in the Round. ImageImage
2. One of the projectors used by Joseph was exhibited for a long time at #Sapna in Thrissur, a theatre founded by his family. It was finally handed over to the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy in 2020. Sapna, incidentally, took life as Rama Varma theatre in the 1930s. ImageImage

Engineering a City #thread
Having spent my entire childhood in #Kochi (#Cochin ), it feels criminal to not know the story of how the city came to be the #metropolis it is today. Putting together a thread to trace the journey of the city which has been so endearingly mine (1)
Part 1: The #Malabar Mud-Banks
The story of Cochin is not just about how an engineering marvel can change social fabric, but also of many tenets of #British #Colonialism in India which is often taken for granted, passed off lazily as exploitation, missing nuance (2)
As with any coastal town, the cultural and economic history of Kochi is intertwined with maritime trade routes since the time of the Early Romans and Arabs. Thanks to the #biennale , most of us would now be familiar with the term #Muzuris (3)

-Request @cleanganganmcg @CPCB_OFFICIAL to also look into changes in riparian biodiversity in addition to conventional chemical analyses. Apart from good #rainfall, halt in sand mining hs helped #Yamuna with lean season flows. @RajivRanjanMis5โ€ฆ @yamunajiye
Its time for #Delhi govt @ArvindKejriwal @msisodia to start real-time monitoring of #river.

Hope @DrGargava @CPCB_OFFICIAL wld also put outcome of sample analysis done for #Yamuna in public domain.โ€ฆ

It started heavily even in Thiruvananthapuram. Heard that Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar receiving heavy rainfall and Madupetty Dam shutters are opened. Mullaperiyar is at 136.60 ft at 12noon today. #KeralaFloods
The water from Madupetty Dam will flow through Munnar to Kallarkutty and Lower Periyar Dams and will join Bhoothankettu Barrage in Periyar River..
Mudirapuzha arm of Periyar is used to receive heavy rainfall. This sub basin along with Mullaperiyar catchment created great havocs in 1924 and 1961 floods.
