1. The Breathtaking Entitlement of Bollywood

Bollywood is falling. And there is no doubt about it. The signs are many and the frustration is brewing. Its directors and actors are forced to reveal the breathtaking degree of their sense of entitlement.
2. When a poorly made non-descript movie with non-descript actors like Karthikeya 2 but with a very solid Hindu orientation destroys giants like #LaalSinghChadha and #Rakshabandhan then know that something fundamental has changed.
3. Bollywood was always an incongruity. It was a ‘Hindi’ film industry in a Marathi state with no connect to either Maharashtra or to the 55 crore Hindi belt in north. It was by and for an extremely rare Mumbai uber-upper class who flew into their pent houses in helicopters.

Here is a heart touching story of Tuktuk’s recovery ...
All our rescues are very close to our hearts. Lots of running around behind sick and injured furballs, follow-ups, much patience is required
#IDAIndia #DogsofTwittter #doglovers
Tuk-tuk’s case was reported by one of the trustees and immediately our compassionate driver was determined to catch hold of him and help Tuk-tuk as he had hit by stone and had been hiding since long. When rescued he had a foul smelling #wound filled with live #maggots
Tuk-tuk gave a good chase but finally our senior staff driver managed to catch him. Tuk-tuk is under our care since May 2021. Sr Vet has advised medication to be dusted every day else his little wet wound will resurface again which can lead to a bad open wound. #Dog #treatment

So which movie should you watch in theatres?

The movies written & made by those who MOCK our Sanatan Sanskar like #LaalSinghChaddha & #RakshaBandhan or one which celebrates our HISTORY #Karthikeya2 produced by makers of Kashmir Files?

Let’s not be affected by our history written by distortians 🤨🤨

Actually, #RakshaBandhan was originally not a brother-sister festival. It has its origins in a rite known as Vedopakarma (the beginning of Vedic Studies). 1/4
Chapter 124(pg 28) of Narada Purana Vol 4 gives a description of this Vrata performed on Sravana Poornima. It involves tying a Raksha on one's wrist to ensure an auspicious beginning of Vedic studies.
The adhyaya 137 Uttara Parva of Bhavishya Purana gives an account of how Indra grew powerful against Mahabali and defeated him due to a Raksha tied by Indrani Sachi.

THREAD: As campuses reopen in the fall, we bring to your attention a student group operating on 🇺🇸 college campuses that have spread dangerous lies about Hinduism and engaged in targeted harassment of Hindu students.

Part 1, 2, and 3 are available to view on our IG📸👈🏾
Our investigation has found that Hindu religious festivals were politicized to further a Hinduphobic motive, incitement of violence against Hindus took place and the group supported known terrorists responsible for the murder of minorities.
Before we begin, we would like to make it very clear that we, as @hinduoncampus, do not condone any type of abuse, threats or harassment. This thread should not be an excuse to do any of this.

I argue in #FearlessFreedom: Reimagine #RakshaBandhan, not as a shackle but as a bond where siblings protect each other. Protect your sibling who wants to come out as gay or trans. Uncouple protectiveness from restrictions on women’s rights. @thewire_in…
My book #FearlessFreedom (@PenguinIndia 2020) discusses #RakshaBandhan as part of the patriarchal ideology of guardianship. The same ideology that plays out in Saudi Arabia guardianship & rape laws. We need to reminagine #rakhicelebration as #SamaantaWaliRakhi ImageImageImageImage
On #RakshaBandhan we should celebrate the women who became sisters in struggle - like Fatima Sheikh and Savitri Bai, like Satyarani Chaddha and Shahjahan Apa. Page from #FearlessFreedom, my book (@PenguinIndia 2020)

This is truly the most honest assessment of her work.

She was/is to Urdu shayari what is @RohiniBakshi is to Sanskrit revival. But now apparently, a self acclaimed historian as well.

Shayari Collector @iamrana has been schooled again.

Thank you, @TIinExile !!

#Thread Going to ask @PetaIndia 5 specific questions. I know they follow my TL even though they are pretending I do not exist, after trolling me 24/7 for 2 days. My questions will prove that not only is @PetaIndia #AntiHinduPeta, it is also a fraud organisation #PetaIndiaExposed
Question 1 - @PetaIndia You made a ridiculous connection in your hoardings between #RakshaBandhan and cow leather trade, but why have you NOT mentioned #EidAlAdha anywhere in your hoardings featuring goats? Scared much? #AntiHinduPeta
Question 2 - You LIED that @IngridNewkirk WAS your founder and she is NOT the main functionary at @PetaIndia, if that is true, why do your campaigns feature her, and why does she sign your official FCRA returns? #AntiHinduPeta #PetaIndiaExposed

Our relief work started with Kadra today. Visiting the Kali Dam which created all the havoc here. I witnessed Nature’s dance of destruction! Spoke to local people and planned our further actions.

Poor little cat waiting alone on the street. Initially it was fearing and once we gave few biscuits to eat it became our friend. After eating few bananas cows also joined this cat to share biscuit. A wonderful scene. Nature has the capacity to bind everyone together! ImageImage
No. They were not affected by floods. But we’re working in fields even when it was raining. We gave few blankets, sarees and biscuits, chocolates to them. The happiness on their face took off all the tiredness! ImageImageImage
