Today, it’s not just Republic Day, but also the establishment day of the state of West Bengal. Abnormal it may sound, but after much hardship #DrSyamaPrasadMukherjee was able to influence the Bengal Legislature to include the Hindu part of Bengal within India. #WestBengal
Mohammad Ali Jinnah very clearly said he will not settle for Bengal, if Calcutta is not given to Pakistan. If he succeeded in this demand, entire Bengal, Assam, Tripura and Manipur would fall in the lap of East Pakistan, now Bangladesh. #DrSyamaPrasadMukherjee #WestBengal
While our Communists found the demand for Pakistan very much justified, the #Congress too was almost ready to gift entire Bengal to Pakistan, ignoring the interests of its huge Hindu population. #DrSyamaPrasadMukherjee #WestBengal

A short story on #Left, #Congress, #TMC and #MIM duplicity.
Author @taslimanasreen had to flee #Bangladesh after #Islamists / #Jamaatis called for her death for her book 'Lajja'. The book dealt with terrible attacks on Hindus in Bangladesh post-Babri demolition. #CAB 1/n
Taslima had to be literally smuggled out of Bangladesh to #Sweden. She wanted to live in #India, more specifically in #Kolkata , to be near her homeland. The ABV Govt gave her a long-term residence visa. Taslima set up home in Kolkata and lived on her writings. #CAB 2/n
Muslim leaders jn Kolkata were never comfortable with her presence. @cpimspeak then in power in #WestBengal banned her autobiography (courts later removed the ban). The #Left Front engineered anti-Taslima riots with the help of a #Congress Muslim leader (with TMC now). #CAB 3/n

Today, I will try my hand at live tweeting insights from "A #Home of One's Own", a two-day #researchworkshop on socially & economically #marginalised women's experiences of and negotiations with #genderinequalities in #informalurbanhousing in India.
This workshop has been organised by #JadavpurUniversity (School of Women's Studies), #RabindraBharathiUniversity (Centre for Women's Studies) and #Parichiti, a women's organisation. All three are research partners on a #GCRF project funded by @GoldsmithsUoL.

A thread about doctors based on my observations: #Delhi docs, esp. younger ones, do not touch patients. No clinical exam as is common in #Calcutta No open your mouth wide, turn your eyes to the light, examining your abdomen, listening to your breathing. They prefer test reports>
I have observed this over the past several months as my father has stayed in and out of hospitals, mostly in. Only the older doctors in the hospital, by that I mean those near 60, carry stethoscopes. Is it an outraged #Caclutta habit to examine patients clinically? >
Are doctors reluctant to touch patients now? Is medicine now pathlogy lab based? All machine readings, no human skill?
Yet, I notice all lab reports mention that the results must be clinically co-related. >
