Dustbins, busy roads: Places from where we rescue abandoned tortoises! (A THREAD)

This week our team rescued two #startortoises one found abandoned at a temple's dustbin at #Mumbai's Goregaon & other near #Panvel farmhouse

@raww_tweets @tweetsvirat
This week our rehab team experienced two very disturbing incidents of cruelty towards star tortoises.

An alert citizen spotted an injured star tortoise near the dustbin of a temple in Goregaon.
The abandoned reptile was grievously injured. A detailed medical examination at @drrinadev's clinic revealed that both its legs were almost immobile as it suffered from multiple rat bites injuries.

As numbers of sealed buildings in #Mumbai have increased over the past few days owing to rising covid cases, the BMC chief IS Chahal in a meeting held on Monday said that sealing of buildings with over five or more positive cases should be strictly done again.
He also instructed to ensure the presence of police personnel outside a sealed building. Over the past few days, at least seven buildings were sealed in the western suburbs which included those from #Kandivali and buildings from #Bandra 's Pali Hill
He said that considering the possibility of a third #covid wave, it is important to curb the spread of the virus and hence once a building with five or more cases is sealed no one will be allowed to enter or exit the building including #drivers and also house helps.

While the Mumbai airport is stuck with one runway (the 2nd one is intersecting - hence not a fully independent one), and Navi Mumbai airport (with 2 parallel runways) still at least 2-3 years away...

Delhi airport gets its 4th (independent) runway!
Less than a decade back, Mumbai was the busiest airport in the country. Then Delhi overtook it...and is extending the lead each year, with plenty of runway capacity.

Mumbai couldn't grow beyond a point due to runway constraints. Recently even BLR went passed Mumbai, I believe.
Ideally, #Mumbai needed a 2nd (parallel runway) at the current airport two decades back (but not possible I guess due to encroachments...)

It definitely needed the Navi Mumbai Airport functional at least 10 years ago!

Many of you have rented books from here. This is so heart wrenching and at the same time so strengthening.

This is Rakesh. He runs a second hand book stall near Andheri, #Mumbai . You can rent a book from his shop for as low as Rs.10
When asked if he makes enough, Image
he said “People earn so they can spend money on something they want. I’m already surrounded by the one thing I’ve always wanted.” Also, he takes care of the bookshop using his only arm. This man deserves recognition ❤️

Location: Vijay Nagar, Marol, Opposite Hot Chips
Last Update: 2020: Spoke to Rakesh for a fundraiser and he said “there are thousands of migrant workers dying out there. Support them and not me. I have all the food on my table and the privilege to sit at home and be safe.”

#BombayHC bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Girish Kulkarni to hear petition filed by adv @DhrutiMKapadia seeking door-to-door vaccination for elderly and bedridden citizens in the state. @CMOMaharashtra was asked to submit guidelines today.
@DhrutiMKapadia appearing in person.
Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni for the state.
Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh for Union govt.

Kapadia: Policy is given to me last night. It isn't useful. It looks like the Union's "Near the Home" policy.

Kapadia: When all states can smoothly conduct this drive why are we struggling in #Maharashtra ?

#ThirdWave of #Covid is yet to arrive yet they are not coming up with a proper policy.

Reads out from the state's policy - It says "May be implemented."

#BombayHC bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice Girish Kulkarni to hear PIL filed by adv @DhrutiMKapadia seeking #DoorToDoor vaccination drive for the elderly and bedridden citizens. @CMOMaharashtra likely to submit final policy on door-to-door vax drive.
Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni: We have issued publicity about our policy in print media, Twitter and even Facebook. But because of rains, we couldn't file an affidavit.

Dedicated email ID has been created and given wide publicity for gaining info on bedridden citizens.
AG: Name, Age, Reason For Bedridden is the requisite information.

13,584 bedridden citizens have communicated with us till now.

Such info was never collected by the Health Dept and thus the local bodies are verifying the information.
