When you look back at things, they become clearer than when they actually happened. Irrfan always said, "You have a tendency to support the underdog, and hence we are together."⁠⁠

But now when the fog has cleared, and I can see everything without conditioning, I know it was destiny. We were meant to be together.⁠

It was a hot summer afternoon in Delhi when I saw him for the first time.
A lanky, bespeckled young man in a black terry-cotton bellbottom and a light green printed shirt, with a leather sling bag from Rajasthan, walking towards the NSD lobby.⁠

He was definitely not my type.

Veer Kunwar Singh, one of the heroes of the 1857 Revolt, who at 80 years, led the rebellion in Bihar and Eastern UP. And gave one of the toughest fights ever to the British, constantly harassing them till his end.
Thread on his Jayanti today.
Kunwar Singh belonged to the Ujjainiya Rajput clan, who are primarily found in Bihar- Eastern UP. They claim descent from Raja Bhoj, and in fact Bhojpur region gets it's name from this. Most of the Purbiya soldiers known for their martial skills were from this clan.
What is currently regarded as the Bhojpuri region is primarily Purvanchal or Eastern UP, and the Western part of Bihar, bordering Mithila and Magadha. This region of Bihar was primarily one single district Shahabad, that was bifurcated in 1972 into Bhojpur and Rohtas( Sasaram).

Welcome to the start of another week and the start of my daily thread with the news and views from #Ukraine as #Russia continues the illegal war.

We're on Day 236 now as #Putin brings terror to #Kyiv again.
Here is where you'll find yesterday's stories:

#Ukraine's President @Zelenskyy publishes this video from the capital #Kyiv, writing
"All night & all morning, the enemy terrorises the civilian population. Kamikaze drones + missiles are attacking all of Ukraine. A residential building was hit in Kyiv."

#RussiaIsATerroristState
In his reaction to the bombing of civilian districts of #Kyiv, Mr Zelenskyy continued:
"The enemy can attack our cities, but it won’t be able to break us. The occupiers will get only fair punishment and condemnation of future generations. We will get victory."

My heart is heavy right now learning the great Louise Fletcher has left us.
I will never forget our last visit (not to long ago) when we got to spend a whole weekend together. Our conversations were amazing just laughing and sharing all our memories from 1986 when we
filmed. "Flowers In The Attic". I am so grateful I got to spend that time with you before you had to leave us. Louise you were an absolute joy to work with, you were a mentor and a friend, the gifts
you showed and gave me in developing my craft are
irreplaceable. You are a true blessing and a beautiful woman inside and out. I will miss you and the world will miss you. Rest In Peace and Love Louise 🙏🏼 I love you ❤️ #Legend 🌷#LouiseFletcher

Born John Rao Prakash Rao Janumala, Johnny grew up in the narrow lanes of Dharavi, Mumbai.
(2/6)
His father worked as an operator in Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) and earned barely enough to sustain the family, which comprised Johnny along with three sisters and two brothers.

Owing to financial problems, Johnny had to leave school when he was in Class 7 and take up odd jobs. From selling pens and dancing on the streets of Mumbai to mimicking Bollywood actors, Johnny did it all.

How the legend #Rakeshjhunjhunwala started his journey. The #Story in his own words⤵️. The journey from 20 lacs to 2.5 crores. #RIP #Omshanti #Thread 🧵#Investing #Stockmarket #Stocks. 1/10
My father was also interested in #stocks. When I was a young child, he and his friends would drink in the evening & discuss about the #Stockmarket. I would listen to them and one day I asked him why do these prices fluctuate. (2/10)
He told me to check if there is a news item on Gwalior Rayon in the newspaper, and if there was Gwalior Rayon’s price would fluctuate the next day.

I found it very interesting & I got fascinated by #stocks, I self-taught myself. 3/10

Lachit Borphukan, the great Ahom general who beat back the mighty Mughal army at the Battle of Saraighat and thwarted Aurangzeb's ambition of expanding the Mughal empire into Assam.
Thread on his death anniversary today.
While a lot is known about the Marathas, and the valor of Shivaji, not much is really known about the Ahoms, and their spirited resistance to the Mughals.
From 1615 when the Mughal Army attacked the Ahom Kingdom to the Battle of Itakhuli in 1682 that saw a decisive Ahom victory, which resulted in the Mughal retreat.

With the celebrations for #veerkunwarsingh Vijayutsav going on in Bihar, my thread on one of the greatest heroes of the 1857 revolt, who gave the toughest fight to the British at the age of 80, and remained undefeated. Image
Vaise it's not #VeerKunwarSingh Jayanti as being claimed by some, that falls in November, while his death anniversary is on April 26. The Vijayutsav is more to celebrate his capture of Jagadishpur from the British.
Kunwar Singh belonged to the Ujjainiya Rajput clan, who are primarily found in Bihar- Eastern UP. They claim descent from Raja Bhoj, and in fact Bhojpur region gets it's name from this. Most of the Purbiya soldiers known for their martial skills were from this clan.

Long overdue.

My father, self made, self educated (5th grade education), born 1926 Great Depression, orphaned

1946 started one of 1st mail order businesses.

Laughed @ “people buy products they don’t see and prepay? Trust some kid in the Bronx will mail items? Good luck!”

1/5
Paid in stamps and coins - this was before credit cards existed!

Nobody saw what he saw. He did it anyways.

Later, when I graduated college, he ASKED if I wanted to take over the biz. I respectfully declined. “Dad, I want to prove myself against the sharpest guys on Wall St”
He then GAVE the company to his loyal employees- many had been w him for 40 years.

He always balanced work and life perfectly and prioritized QUALITY of life > $. He made all his buying and marketing decisions in 3 months (Bronx), and lived 9 mo in Costa Rica.

1/ Beyond her world of playback singing, few know that Lata Mangeshkar's musical tastes were way more eclectic.

She enjoyed listening to Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Nat King Cole, the Beatles, Barbra Streisand and Harry Belafonte.
2/ She went to see Marlene Dietrich singing on stage, and loved Ingrid Bergman's theatre. She could also be found studio hopping at the sitar maestro Ravi Shankar's studio, where she bumped into his friend and Beatle, George Harrison.
3/ In 1979, she became the first Indian to perform with the Wren Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall. Here's how she later recalled the experience in her own words:

"Around 1974, I had gone to London for my first overseas concert, at the Royal Albert Hall....

What is happiness? Read this from @RafaelNadal interview I Read and you will know why this man is special ❤️ .Nadal said on potentially surpassing Federer’s Grand Slam haul: “The thing is that my future happiness doesn’t depend on surpassing Federer.
This is the end of the story. I won’t find complete happiness by winning 20 or even 25 Grand Slams. Does it excite me? Of course, it excites me because this is what I do and I want to be as good as possible.
but so many good things have happened to me throughout all these years that all I can do is be grateful for life and the people that have helped me.” - What a #Legend !

I was always a big fan of @imVkohli the cricketer. Calmness on the crease and aggression on the field. But there was some point where I came across this very lengthy, candid interview of him with Graham Bensinger. It spanned nearly 1.5 hours. I watched the whole thing. (1/4) Image
He talked about his journey, what cricket meant to him, turning points in his life, struggles, failures, success, how he overcame various obstacles, power of self-belief, confidence, visualization- pretty much what any excelling sportsperson talks about in such interviews. (2/4) Image
But even among so many similarities, there was one difference. The difference in the way he put his ideas across. It was inspiring, inspiring in a special way. It just gave such a great insight into the mindset of a legend. It was beyond just cricket. (3/4) Image

#AWallStreetStory
When I moved to NY in the late 90s I often took the subway bc I didn’t have money to ride around in cabs and town cars all the time. So the 6 Train doubled as my limousine and Grand Central Station doubled as my garage.
In May 1999 I was fortunate to be hired by Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette for their Wall Street training program. This was very convenient because the DLJ offices were just two blocks from my garage.

Let's start #BlackHistoryMonth with the story of William Carney.

While some 3,500 Americans have earned the Medal of Honor, only 90 are black. Of those 90, William was the first.
[2 of 4]

Born a slave, William was part of Union charge on Fort Wagner during the Civil War in July, 1863, with the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry Regiment [depicted in the 1989 Denzel Washington film "Glory."].
[3 of 4]

During that siege, William saw the regimental color guard fall, hit by a Confederate bullet. William scrambled to catch the falling flag.

Wounded several times, William refused to let the regimental colors (the American flag) touch the ground or fall into enemy hands.
