I am a Proud Hindu🕉️ from South India.

#Bhogi, #Pongal, #Kanuma #Ugadi/#Yugadi, #Puthandhu, #Vishu, #Bonalu, #Onam, #Bathukamma, #Atlatadde/#Atlataddi, #KarthigaiDeepam etc are Hindu🕉️ festivals & they're based on our Hindu calenders only.

DO NOT "Secularize" them bcoz

you Le-Lis want to further your North-South divide by tying us to some fake regional pride.

Non-Hindus can celebrate Hindu🕉️ festivals in our way if they want but don't try to appropriate & disrespect our Hindu festivals-traditions.

DO NOT take our tolerance for granted.

To stop @narendramodi, #Hindutva; many Anti-Hindu groups are destroying, demeaning South's Hindu culture.

E.g. Xtian missionaries are appropriating #Bathukamma🕉️ festival


While Islamist @asadowaisi mocking our #Bathukamma🕉️

Happy Onam to all my twitter friends

The word Onam is believed to have been originated from Sanskrit word Shravanam which in Sanskrit refers to one of the 27 Nakshatars or constellations. Thiru in South India is used for anything
associated with the Lord Vishnu and Thiruvonam is believed to be the Nakshatra of Lord Vishnu who took Kalki Avatar and sent Mahabali Chakravarthy to "padala lokam"
was the most just king ever. None of the needy ever returned empty handed from his door. The story of King
Mahabali says that the king sacrificed himself along with every thing else he had in order to stand true to his words. Thus as a reward for his sacrifice he was blessed to be remembered by the people of Kerala & all his followers for eternity in the form of Onam festival

#KeralaFloods might hv an astral connection, as it is believed #Kerala d land of #vamana celebrates every yr #Onam around this time, Onam falls on d birth #constellation of vamana i.e #Shravana nakshtra in which we had d longest total lunar eclipse of this century on 27/28 July
Like at a personal level for one who is born or associated with shravana constellation or Nakshtra d #Eclipse affects individually similarly it affects a region in this case #kerala at a mundane level astrally on human affairs that runs across d southern belt of #westernghats
Also #Kerala is a land blessed by d #serpents & d reason for its fertility is directly related to d blessings bestowed by #Nagas on #Parasurama in a barren land infested with sea salt, hence not respecting d blessings by cutting down forests on large scale in d name of developmnt
