As @airindiain comes home to family @TataCompanies I was reminded of this brilliant advertising booklet that the airline used to give out to passengers when the world was normal, people could laugh at themselves & unlike today not take offence & outrage at the slightest imagined
insult or slight. Today these 2 booklets would have led to riots inside parliament & someone like even #JRDTata termed as anti-national, being asked to leave the country, heads would have rolled. But back then we were humans with the ability to laugh at the incongruous not idiots
I share the entire booklets in 2 series. This was called #FoolishlyYours & genius admen/ marketers like #BobbyKooka conceived this. The woke leftlib secular idiots would outrage at the plethora of racism while the equally idiotic right would do so on the insult to nationalism.

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)

#Nehru died this day 56yrs ago
A week earlier he'd sent #SheikhAbdullah to Karachi to meet/negotiate with the #Pakistani military dictator #AyubKhan
Sheikh rushed back upon Nehru's death
The three men ever shared what was cooking
Such hush-hush freelancing continues over #Kashmir
#Nehru indeed is the original sinner in our headache over #Kashmir
But the mindset to deal with this headache, across govts parties and leaders has remained Nehruvian:
Integration through soft separatism
A secular facade to reward bigotry
Hand over democracy to rank autocrats
#Nehru the interim PM did not defend J&K against the #Pakistani attack till the #Maharaja appointed #Sheikh
He let Sheikh rob the elections to stuff his own men in the Constituent Assembly of J&K
All others' nominations were cancelled to 'elect' unopposed 73 NC members out of 75.
