Ram-Nam, Marine Lines on Cinema Road, behind Metro cinema, the popular Art Deco picture palace in Dhobi Talao. #MeherMarfatia talks about its construction that obstructed the sea view. Resident of nearby Jehangir mansion, Pesi Khansaheb, paid Rs 4 extra a month - Rs 72
instead of Rs 68 for 4th floor sea views. Ram-Na m is a majestic streamlined street corner building with reeded spandrels and a cylindrical turret at the roof. Tanya George @tanyatypes says, "The lettering for the building name uses bold, geometric shapes. The stencil-like effect
created due to the lack of counter spaces creates a striking design. The letterforms are also quite similar to Milton Glaser’s famous Baby Teeth typeface seen in one of his most famous works, the Dylan poster. I wonder how much the design was influenced by the typeface

It may or may not have been right or appropriate for @pbhushan1 to say what he did about #SupremeCourtOfIndia #Judges.
But it can never be right for the Court, never mind the same Justices, to sit in judgement on his statements.

The Justices are not demi-gods, beyond criticism.
In the #Ramayana story when an ordinary #dhobi questioned the propriety of #Ram unquestionably taking back #Sita, he did not have the dhobi hauled up for contempt. Not that what Ram did do was at all defensible!
Typo : Meant to write 'unquestioningly'

1-Through the #Grace of the #Godeess ,we have been on a cosmic #Joyride since quite some time now!

Let’s continue with the same with the discussions on some more #Shakti #Mantras! (1/21)

2-Let’s begin today with #Klim

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

3-#Klim also relates to #Sundari the #Goddess of #Love, #Beauty and #Transcendence

#Klim activates #Desire, #Love and #Attraction

In #VedicAstrology #Klim is used to invoke #Venus and sometimes #moon. (3/21)

#Ram is written all over us. So, you see, we are the Ramayana." The Ramnami sect, originally Dalits, have rejected the #caste system to adopt a bhakti path open to all with Ram at its centre. They have distinctive cultural norms, but the younger generation is giving them up. ImageImage
“We took our message not from god but from a man, a common man," the Ramnamis say of their legendary leader Parasuram, a #Dalit man born in Charpora village in the 1870s. The msg is of #equality, as they try to build a community free of caste, class & gender discrimination. ImageImage
Pandit Ram Das, for instance, has rewritten the poet saint Tulsidas's Ramcharitmanas – the holy book of the Ramnami, where it indicates class & gender inequality. There is no sorrow in this world like #poverty,” says Mehtr Ram Tandon quoting Tulsidas.… ImageImage

#RamMandirAyodhya #Bhoomipujan today is another step along the way not to building up a new resurgent strong influential, unassailable #India. It's objective is to build up an (electorally) strong, influential, and unassailable political #RightWing Party.
It is not so much about #religion, it's all about building up a new mythology of overt religiosity, creating a theocracy in the garb of nationalism, asserting control of the majority, and coercing the minority into accepting its subservient status.
Fanatic Hindus may well be celebrating and congratulating each other, but it is hard to see how any of them actually benefit from the Project. The fact of #RamMandir will be used to quell any demands for #RamRajya the apocryphal #PerfectRule that was said to exist at the time.

“Put your @twitter in #DarkMode then read”

This story connects the
|| Satyuga || Bhakt Prahladh ,
||TretaYuga || #Ramayan and
||DwaparYuga || the #Mahabharat in an amazing way.
It is of the story of Jaya and Vijaya.

RT and spread the knowledge.
Jaya & Vijaya R the two gatekeepers of the abode of Vishnu. According to the #Bhagavata Purana, the 4Kumaras Sanaka, Sanandana,Sanatana,& Sanatkumara, who R manasaputras of Brahma,decide to pay a visit to #Vishnu. The Sanat Kumaras approach Jaya &Vijaya ask to be let in.
Jaya & Vijaya tell the Kumaras that Sri #Vishnu is resting & that they cannot see him now. The enraged Kumaras cursed both of them that they would have to give up their divinity, be born as mortals on Earth and live like normal human beings.

Must have been strong karmas that we're witnessing the 500-year old struggle paying off today.
My father was one of the many volunteers that marched to #Ayodhya during Atalji's reign to join in the fight while having witnessed the horrors and struggles during the fight. Image
Some of the lives that were lost were of The Kothari Brothers, Prof Mahendranath Arora, Setharam Mali, Ramesh Pandey.
It just hasn't been an easy victory.
Faintly remember how my father broke down while describing the horrors of the struggle that he was a part of & witnessed. Image
Today, while I have already begun visualizing the grandeur of #Ayodhya that will be 4/5 years down the lane, heart cries for all who spilled their blood on #Ram bhoomi to re-establish Dharma. Can only bow down to them with a "Sashtang Dandavat".
We ARE, because you gave it all! Image

Remembering #NaMuthukumar - A THREAD

25 songs that best describe the genius of Na Muthukumar

Facing an unenviable task of picking 25 songs from his outstanding work, we have designed five categories and listed five remarkable songs in each category.

Remembering #NaMuthukumar

It is not just romance that is best described by poetry.

What about the bond between parents and their children?

What about the relationships that can't quite be boxed?

Na Muthukumar had the answers

The recent discoveries at #Ram Janmaboomi gives evidences of a glorious temple expanded by Gahadavala #Rajput dynasty.
The last Sovereign Hindu kingdom that ruled #Ayodhya.

Evidences suggest, construction of a Grand Vishnu Temple by King Govindrachand & later by King Jaichand. Image
In 1130 & 1150, King Govindachandra of Gahadavala dynasty expanded a pre-existing Vishnu Temple at the spot that is today known to us as Shri Ramajanmabhoomi.

In 1184, King Jaichandra built a majestic temple of Lord Rama with Golden Spire as quoted in Treta ke Thakur Inscription ImageImage
Sadly only few inscriptions & some sculptures are amongst us,& none of the glorious temples built by Gahadavala Rajputs in Ayodhya, Benaras & Prayag r remaining, still those sculptures tells us the Glory of that period.
Glory of Hindu chisel was surely unmatchable.

#Ayodhya Through the Lens of Archaeology


Points from the overall report of the ASI 👇
1. The excavations give ample traces that there was a mammoth structure beneath this site.

2. This structure had perimeters in the East-West direction.

3. The bricks predate the time of Babar.

4. Some of these bricks at the lower levels, indicate that they are over 2500 yrs old since moulded bricks of round and other shapes and sizes were in vogue only over 2000 years ago. They ceased to be used during the middle ages.

Why is #Ramayan considered mythology by our own people when we have Ram Setu which is man made. 1. Image
As per the Institute for Scientific Research on Vedas (I-SERVE), planetarium software has ascertained the birth of Lord Rama as 10th January 5114 BC in Ayodhya. 
Which matches time given in Valmiki Ramayana. Image
our comprehension, as myths is the biggest disservice that we do to our own history. Image

#JNUVioence , Late #JJ and #Dravidians - this tweet may not be appreciated at all - more than sometimes truth hurts and it is bitter too; the comparatives which i am quoting may not be palatable to many - but then it is my view on the subject which is #Violence and that alone 2/3

#India's Supreme Court clears the way for construction of #Hindu temple on site of destroyed #BabriMasjid in #Ayodhya.

I've been following this issue for 30+ years. Here's a thread analyzing the #AyodhyaJudgment:…

-I first visited #Ayodhya (& #BabriMasjid) in 1990: before the masjid was destroyed, before I entered the field of #anthropology. I went there while researching my first book, "Arrow of the Blue-Skinned God": A re-tracing of the #Hindu epic #Ramayana...

Day 40 of the hearing in the #Ayodhyacase begins with the #CJI making it clear that arguments will close at 5 pm today. "Enough is enough," says Justice Gogoi.

Sr adv CS Vaidyanathan resumes his arguments, saying the #Muslim side hasn't given any evidence on exclusive possession or title.

Vaidyanathan argues there could be some evidence that the #Muslim side offered Friday prayers at the disputed site between 1857 & 1934. "But there is absolutely no evidence that they offered any prayer after that. On the other hand, #Hindus continued to worship".

📌TJ:”A high amount of MSM speculation & mistakes over the past two weeks means they are being fed disinfo about a report & where Mueller's inv’n is going.

📌What we did learn is Peter Strzok referred to classified crimes that are horrific in his House transcript.”

📌TJ:”Mueller is keeping Trump/RU conspiracy info secret for a reason- it’s a NatSec issue.

It’s not just a/b jeopardizing ongoing investigations.

📌The problem he faces is how to tell the country Trump is a traitor, installed by Putin, while he’s still in office”

📌TJ:”It would be treason to hide or change evidence so the Trump/Kush crime wave & Putin's control of Trump cont’s.

📌Barr may have thought he could give Rs a soft landing.

📌Not now.

📌He has to help remove a traitor in the context of our legal structure.”

Mueller vs Barr: the battle to indict Trump

Mueller Y, Barr N = delay.

Both agree the Trump kids & Kush should be indicted for financial crimes.

Trump = obstruction of Justice.

There is a strange silence around DC.

Like the weird calm before a major hurricane.

At this time the charges will not be about ‘Russia collusion’.

Theory: Mueller will deliver an interim report (fini). ‘Russia collusion’ would be saved for another day.

Mueller could pass evidence/accusations to the House.

Up to the House to charge or impeach

DOJ policy says you can’t indict a sitting POTUS—that’s policy, not law—there is no Constitutional prohibition.

📌No one is above the law.

Could use the courts or a grand jury.

The coming weeks will be a testing time in the history of the Republic.

Buckle up!
