This post set us thinking.
#kumbh2019 #प्रयागकुंभ #Prayagraj is much more than these.
Made famous as 'siberian birds' - these are actually named Palla's Gull. They are NOT from Siberia @PrayagrajKumbh @uptourismgov @incredibleindia.
Now we are starting a new series - #kumbhbirds
This is one of the rarest birds of North India and it is a very splendid sight to see. This is found only near river banks.
Spotted at #Kumbh2019 #KumbhMela2019 #kumbhbirds
@ornithology @upecotourism @BirdWatchingMag @BirdWatchDaily @uptourismgov @PrayagrajKumbh @incredibleindia
Found mainly in the jungles some of these are often found near cities and often unnoticed by people. They are also called 'seven sisters' as they are often found in groups of seven.

Kumbh Calling. Will be at Kumbh for the first time in life, traveling solo so no chance of getting lost, but let's see what I find & what finds me. If you are in #prayagrajkumbh for next 4 days, connect on. #travel #KumbhMela #kumbh
My Kumbh journey begins with Triveni Arti - live music, everyone singing along #travel #kumbhmela #Prayagraj
Baba Munna Giri of Ramanandi Juna Akhara, who lives on a 2.5 X 3 feet asana, even sleeps on that. A dhuni is always next to him. #travel #kumbh #prayagrajkumbh

Why exactly do Invaders change names of places? (For low iq Pidis)
Name change by invader is a way of severing ties with heritage/ancestry. Which in turn leads to isolation of communities. Over generations these isolated communities accept Invaders as their own. #Prayagraj
Do visit Americas to understand the effects. No traces of the Mayan influence remains. The language has changed, the culture has changed. Only the relics remain as a tourist magnet.
We survived because through generations the stories of our glorious ancestors survived. #Ayodhya
So if u r a wealthy family living in a mansion and I a jealous outsider. I will get into ur house and change ur name. Once the name is changed, u will no longer have any ties with others in the mansion. Then I will keep telling u about ur inferiority and my superiority.

Did you know?

The Yamuna once flowed into the mighty Saraswathy
So did the Sutudri
Sutlej abandoned her for the Sindhu
And Yamuna chose the Ganga
Her life veins were cut

The volume of scientific literature on these tectonic events is HUGE
Starting with Yashpal et al:1984

Saraswathy died, so that Prayaga could be born.

The river that mothered civilization itself,
The river that nourished thousands of Harappan cities
Gave us one last gift before she bled out of existence.

That is Prayaga. Remember that.
Make it a city the world envies.
Some folks are attacking me all out for insisting on the name #Prayaga instead of #Prayagraj

These simplistic folks use accreted Puranic verses as reference of proof.

They do not understand that the Yamuna joined Ganga only recently~<5000BP.

That history is not that simple.

Apart from scoring political brownie points, let us not forget that changing names of cities leads to massive (unnecessary) expenses.

Just think of the signboards on highways which currently read Allahabad that'll need to be changed to #Prayagraj.
We see shops with addresses written on their signboards. They'll have to be changed too at the personal expense of businessmen.

Allahabad is a part of a district called... You guessed it... Allahabad district. The paperwork changing required here will give babus nightmares.
Of course. Whataboutery. What a surprise.

You know what, politicians change names for earning brownie points. Roads, cities, airports whatever. Because they can.

But it doesn't take away from the fact that it might lead to some unnecessary admin expenses
