We are thrilled to announce that @VestiOfficial will be offering an all expense paid trip to the Maldives this summer, to the phenomenal @Hildabaci of @myfoodbyhilda on her daring and record breaking attempt at the #Guinness world record at 27years for the longest number of Image
hours a chef has cooked.

We are inspired by this global feat and wish her the best as she attempts to break the record, and believe this will inspire the next generation of record breakers in Nigeria and on the African continent.

Long Thread:

China's “Pearl of Strings" Vs Bharat's “Diamond Necklace"!

Modern day wars are not to conquer Land Parcels, but to control Trade & Economies!

#China was lucky to be given a Free Hand by #UPA govt of CONgress which literally slept over Strategic Issues.

#China increased it's presence in Indian Ocean rampantly till 2014 through its Debt Trap Diplomacy to suit it's #StringsOfPearls strategy to contain Bharat's hold in Indian Ocean.

It created a ring around Bharat through strategically placed Nations.

How was it being done?

Via debt-trap policy! China lured strategically located nations around #Bharat to borrow Infra Loans. Once indebted, #China pressurized them to support its Geostrategic interests. This way, China got Control over Chittagong
(Bangladesh),Karachi &Gwadar Port(Pakistan) and...

A common refrain from anti-anonymity #Facebook apologists is that its #RealNamesPolicy promoted "civility" by making users "accountable" for their words.

1/13.📜NEW BLOG: A new blog by members of @LossandDamage explains where the phrase “mosaic of solutions” comes from and how it captures the need to mobilise action and support on all fronts (both inside & outside the @UNFCCC) to address #LossAndDamage.

🔗… Image
2/13. The phrase “mosaic of solutions” was first used by the #Maldives —one of the nations most vulnerable to the impacts of the #ClimateCrisis— in September to capture the need to mobilise action and support on all fronts to address #LossAndDamage that is happening now.
3/13. However, in the #LossAndDamage Finance negotiations at #COP27 the term has been used by developed countries to stress the need to focus on solutions outside the @UNFCCC such as the #GlobalShield Against Climate Risk.

3/20. “We do need a “mosaic of solutions” to address #LossAndDamage. But first and foremost, we need to establish a dedicated funding facility under the @UNFCCC system, where all parties have equal equitable access, and predictable access, to #LossAndDamage finance.” @anuahsa Image

Now in #UNGA, vote to join UN "Human Rights" Council on which China & #Cameroon sit. Only 2 competitions: LatAm & Caribbean: #Chile, #CostaRica & #Venezuela (3 for 2 seats); Asia: #Afghanistan, #Bangladesh, #Kyrgyzstan, #Maldives, #Korea, #Vietnam (6 for 4 seats)
Already, it is exposed that candidates are handing out gifts (bribes) at the doorway of #UNGA. The UN is ever more corrupt under @antonioguterres - Inner City Press used to live stream this bribery, until Guterres had it thrown out…
It's Singapore, asking @UN_PGA @Csaba_Korosi_ to do his job and stop the bribery in #UNGA. Doubt he will - he has adopted @antonioguterres' censorship of Press, so why not this? Now, after gifts given, Korosi says he's shocked, like in Casablanca

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

#Somaliland and #Taiwan: The benefits


1/14. S/land and Taiwan have a lot in common such as both being a fully functioning democracies with volatile neighbours. Both are striving for international recognition and will not budge to threats or diplomatic pressure. Image
2/14. Somaliland brings a lot to the table. S/land’s strategic location in the Horn of Africa will give Taiwan a gateway into East Africa and beyond. Landlocked countries in Africa can benefit from this diplomatic move such as Ethiopia, South Sudan, and Uganda.
3/14. S/land will give Taiwan an important access to the Gulf of Berbera (Gulf Aden) where access to the Middle East, North Africa and the rest of the world can be established which will boost Taiwan’s export opportunities as well as a chance to make new friends in the region.

If you think #Travelling Is Expensive, you might just be doing it wrong

This is how I booked my #Maldives Package for Rs. 28k ( $375 ) per person ( 3 pax )

A Thread ( 1/n )
While for most people extravaganza is a symbol of luxury, for me Maldives has been abt different shades of Blue which itself is a luxury to behold
Maldives are an archipelago of 1,192 coral islands grouped into 26 coral atolls ( 154 islands tourist resorts) in the Indian Ocean
While booking an island resort, the major decisions you need to look at from cost angle is
1. Resort transfer from Male Airport ( Speed boat , Domestic flight , Sea Plane )
2. All-inclusive Package
3. Water-Villa or Beach Villa

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Throughout the history of Indo-Pak region, we had the intellectual dwarfs telling us what #Muslims should do. How dare Muslims to live under Muslim rule?

#ColonialFeminism has been in existence as long as #feminism, almost a joke now (but we have to care, to protect #Kashmir 1/n
..from this species).

Earlier, we exchanged our destiny with massacres & genocides for #Hindu rulers, or the #secularists.

The #fascist outburst in recent decades turned them as 'guardians of Muslims', framing it as '#Hindutva vs. #Secularists', imposing #Ambedkar as the.. 2/n
...solution with a holy excuse of #Dalit discourse (one more #Hindu).

But as the tide is rising, the two nation theory is back again with full force. And Insha Allah we will see many more #Islamic #republics in #Kashmir, #Maldives, #EastPakistan & elsewhere.
