Women’s Movements in South Asian Countries - A 🧵

Movements of women's rights in #SouthAsia can be traced on junctures of striving for justice in social issues & handling external (often post-colonial) influences.

In #India, it was 1980 when the Mathura rape case propelled an anti-rape feminist-led movement that remains the biggest wave till today.

But the current wave spreads beyond protection against sexual violence, to economic rights and has taken up significant digital space.

In #Pakistan, Women Action Forum (WAF) remained the face of women’s movement through 1980s & beyond.

A fresh start came about in 2018 when yearly demonstration called ‘Aurat March’ surfaced. Its momentum has equally met with backlash from different segments of society.

🧵On the revered #Salagrama which is being transported from #Nepal in order to carve the idol of #SriRama at #Ayodhya

Amongst the valued possessions and hallowed objects of worship in a devout Hindu's home, are the Salagramas, those pebble-like objects, smooth to the touch,
spheroid in shape, and black, red, or mixed in colour. That they are, for the most part, a hereditary possession of the family, handed down from generation to generation, is sufficient testimony to the veneration bestowed upon them by our ancients. Not to be bought or sold,
it is a prized gift or dana, and it is given as a valued gift in some places to the bridegrooms along with the bride. The #salagramasila is considered the embodiment of #Vishnu. Its mantra has Shri #Bhagvan for #Rishi or Drashta, and #Narayana as Devata or the object of

In 2018, following d US-Bangla airplane crash, I had two questions (img 1) b/c d #AviationAccident record was horrendous.
ONE reason? Lack of proper investigations. We had clocked ~1 fatal accident/yr since 1990 & BUT most had been blamed on the pilot (img 2). #Nepal
Sure, #Nepal's has one of the toughest & maybe even THE toughest terrain.

BUT then why these? 8 things I discovered in 2018 (see images 1-3)? #Nepal #AviationIndustry #AviationAccidents
My own educated conclusion? The State of #Nepal has scant regard for human life. (You can see that not just in the #AviationIndustry but also in the way it has done NOTHING to address d incredibly high rate of accidents on d roads & highways.

Another Shaligram verification today and sadly, the stone turned out to be a fake. Once again, I am seeing more fabricated Shaligrams being passed off as genuine by sellers hoping to capitalize on devotees who cannot travel to #Nepal. (A Thread)
This fake was pretty good though. More convincing than some I've seen.

But here were the obvious signs:
1. There's a seam/break that you can see between the outer nodule and the internal chakras which pries up fairly easily. This is a giveaway that someone took a few likely broken pieces of a real Shaligram (the ammonite imprints) and covered them with a nodule of industrial epoxy.

El martes se cerraron las negociaciones entre abogados de la Administración Biden y la familia demandante en el caso de cancelación del #TPS en #USA sin acuerdo alcanzando. El riesgo del fin del beneficio migratorio y de que haya deportaciones es mayor 🧵
Miles de familias y miembros de la Alianza Nacional TPS esperaban que estas negociaciones resultara una opción favorable a la situación migratoria de los afectados. Sin ningún acuerdo y sin nueva extensión, el #TPS tiene los días contados
Si la Administración Biden no concede una nueva extensión antes del 30 de noviembre próximo y mantiene su postura en la demanda que ha frenado temporalmente la cancelación, todo apuntaría a que no hay interés de mantener el #TPS

Third post in the #WildlifeWeek series.

Day 3 - #Rhino resurgence in the #Terai !!

The Greater One-Horned #Rhinoceros is the second largest #mammal in #India after the #Elephant. Its distribution once ranged from the flood plains of the Indus to the Indo-Burmese border.
1/11 Image
However the loss of #grassland #habitat resulted in only a small population remaining in North East India and #Nepal.The species was totally extirpated from the Indian Terai in the 19th century, with the last rhino there being shot in the #Pilibhit Forest Division in 1878.
Following this extirpation, #Dudhwa National Park was surveyed for its habitat suitability for the species and finally in 1984, the Addl. CWLW U.P was tasked to capture 6 rhinos from the #Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary, #Assam by tranquilizing them.

१. डेङ्गु लागेका ४ मा १ जना मा मात्र लक्षण देखिने हुन्छ। लक्षण देखिने मध्ये पनि १०० मा ५ जना लाई मात्र गम्भीर लक्षण देखिन्छ। बाँकी सबैमा सामान्य ज्वरो आउने, ज्यू दुख्ने, आलस्य हुने जस्ता हल्का लक्षण मात्र देखिन्छ।
२. अलिक सिकिस्त हुन थालेपछि मात्र उपचार को खोजि हुने र डेङ्गु निर्क्योल झन् त्यो भन्दा पनि कम केसमा मात्र गरिने हुँदा
समाजमा अहिले देखिएको भन्दा निकै व्यापक रूपमा डेङ्गु फैलिसकेको अनुमान गर्न सकिन्छ।
डेङ्गु लगाउने भाइरस ४ प्रकारका हुन्छन्।
३. एक प्रकारले संक्रमण गरेपछि शरीरले त्यसका विरुद्ध एन्टीबडी बनाउँछ र प्रतिरोध क्षमता विकसित गर्दछ। त्यही प्रकार बाट संक्रमण हुन बाट जोगाउछ।
तर अर्को प्रकारको डेङ्गु संक्रमण भएको खण्डमा भने पूर्ववर्ती सङ्क्रमणपछि बनेका एन्टीबडीले उल्टै संक्रमण बढाउँछ।
