[Thread 1/4] Strange true story. When I was 21 I worked in #Sudan as an English teacher. Immediately prior to my arrival in Jan 2007, our small 'British English' school had taught the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, the Minister of State for whom was Ahmed Haroun. In April
2/4 that year the ICC issued a warrant for the arrest of Ahmed Haroun for war crimes and crimes against humanity. That month, our small school had published new promotional pamphlets advertising the school. Right on the front page, was a small feature congratulating those
3/4 students from the humanitarian ministry who passed their English exams. Right next to it, in full colour, was the below picture of our English director, beaming and handing Ahmed Haroun a giant trophy! Needles to say, myself and some of the teachers expressed our concern

Where rain drops part ways: Ever thought of a place where monsoon rain drops after hitting ground say good bye and commence their journey separately. @IfsMadhu shares the picture of such a place here 1/n #Monsoon #rain #india @KarnatakaWorld @tourismgoi @TheWesternGhat #stories Image
Rain drops say good bye to each other to race to seas in two separate destinations .Yes, there exists many such locations in the Western Ghats of India. A ridge on Bisile Ghat in Sakleshpur in Hassan district in Karnataka divides the rain water flowing in the region 2/n
between the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Rain drops on the ridge hit the ground to flow to various streams in the Ghat which then link up with rivers before ending their journey either in the Arabian Sea in the west or Bay of Bengal Bengal in the east. 3/n

Why are we documenting the human stories? 🧵
Public memory can be short term. In a political #posttruth world, where collective memories can be silenced and alternative facts presented to rewrite history, it is more important than ever to compile such collective memories. 1/
Humans are wired for #stories - we’ve been telling them as long as there’s been language. In a time when we are numb to statistics more than ever, there is a need to humanise the numbers and the narrative. 2/

#EndOurCladdingScandal #EndOurFireSafetyScandal
We don’t need all stories to be heart breaking tales. For everyone who’s impacted by the #claddingscandal, we all have our struggles, no matter how big or small they are. If we feel that individually our story is not worth telling, then no one will tell our collective story. 3/

I have a few things to say on the subject. They still have *my* #Dashcam, #Tools and other #PersonalEffects (including my cell & ID, wallet, etc...) that they took out of my car and off me, illegally - with footage of/as they arrested me- illegally.🙃#CriminallyNotNotResponsible
Reminder for non-#Fredericton, New Brunswick folks - Fredericton Police Force (#FPF) don't have #Dashcams, and 𝐧𝐞𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐡𝐚𝐯𝐞.
Now let those last two words settle on you.

Yes, you're right. That does mean everyone arrested, ever in Fredericton area, by #FPF - has only ever been arrested on cops words, and the words of others that reinforce the cops' story.

And thats true TODAY, whenever you read this.

Fun fact? I've spent 46 more days incarcerated than @chrissaccoccia1 has. I was arrested for messing with his hateful ilk in #Fredericton 14 March...after they'd been harassing a peaceful protest, hurling racist slurs, and toting racist shit about china on boards...
I squawked my #EctoOne siren (#GhostBusters nerd & #Feniex installer, on the way to being certified) and put on my hazards.
THEN, the hateful little #Chuddies started hitting my vehicle, multiple times, one woman had a weird fascination with talking about my penis (I 𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙚 my spouse is satisfied - she was still home when I got released ✌️😉).

Ramadan Day 9

A’ishah (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said:
“One who is proficient in reciting the Qur’an is associated with the noble, pious (angel) scribes. As for he who stammers when reciting the Qur’an and find it difficult for him, he will be granted a double reward”
(Al-Bukhari and Muslim)

`Uthman ibn `Affan (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said: “The best among you [Muslims] are those who learn the Qur’an and teach it.” (Al-Bukhari)

An-Nawwas ibn Sm`an (R.A) narrated that the Prophet (SAW) said:
“On the Day
of Resurrection, the Qur’an will be brought with its people who acted according to it in this world. The Surahs of Al-Baqarah and Aal-`Imran will be at the front arguing on behalf of their [devoted] reciter.” (Muslim)

Ashokasundari, The Daughter of Mahadeva.🚩

Padma Purana describes the birth of Ashokasundari. Asoka means no sorrow and sundari means Beautiful.
Once Parvati Devi requested Shiva to take her to the most beautiful garden in the world. Mahadeva took her to Nandanvana, where Devi saw a tree, Kalpavriksha which could fulfill any wish. Parvathi Devi was feeling alone as Muruga and Ganesha were grown up.
To get rid of loneliness, Devi asked for a daughter as a wish to Kalpavriksha. Fulfilling Devi's wish Ashokasundari was born.
A demon Hunda wanted to marry Ashokasundari, but Devi informed him that she would marry Nahusha of Lunar Dynasty. Hunda once tricks and takes

Each and every square feet of
Kedareshwara temple,Halebidu, Karnataka is carved illustrating #Legend #stories from Puranas, Ramayan & Mahabharat.

Just see the #sculpture depicting Bheeshma on the bed made out of arrows & waiting for Uttarayana Punya Kaala to attain mukti.

Kedareshwara temple is Trikuta temple,dedicated to Shiva- Kedareshwara.This temple is a twin to Hoysaleshwar temple,but without Nandi
Main shrine has a Shiv Linga,but rest of 2 has no deities.

Take some time to see outer walls,as even smallest sculpture will portray stories.

I seek forgiveness from lord Surya for any mistakes in my effort .
Surya deva was married to Sanjana, the daughter of Vishwakarma. However, after a while Sanjana became troubled as she was unable to bear the heat of Surya
Lesson: Surya can be troublesome for marital happiness .3/n
She lost her glorious lustre and God named her as Sandhya. She decided to escape the marriage by leaving her clone Chhaya in her place.
Lesson - Combustion(astangata) can lead to dullness (not death) in the karakatwa 4/n

These are the #stories of #math that we celebrate, amplify and make central to the idea of #maths as a #objective #neutral #culture-free subject. #Math can do no #harm, and the #logical “pure math” thinking of #Mathematicians is worthy of emulation. But... 1/x
2/x ... "What about pure mathematics and mathematicians who merely prove theorems? Is there any #ethical component comparable to what you find in other fields of #science?" - R. Hersh in Experiencing #Mathematics

Here is the complete #recitation of #stories from #Mitrabheda tantra of #Panchatantra in #Sanskrit with main thread story of Piṅgalaka Sañjīvaka Karaṭaka Damanaka. Includes all the 17 sub-stories embedded at the right places.…

To completely understand and appreciate #Panchatantra, it is necessary to read the sub-stories in the context in which they appear in the main story. This is an effort to present Panchatantra in that original format
With this, we have reached the 1st milestone of this project which was started more than an year back. Thanks to all the children who have participated in this, who often memorized the stories and recited them perfectly to the camera.

I started my podcast 3 weeks ago & this is the 2nd episode that got 1k views, ORGANICALLY.
Here are my learnings from starting a podcast from scratch & scaling it.

*a thread*
1/n START. It’s intimidating. You will have many fears. Your idea will sound stupid to you in your head. You will doubt your skills. But start anyway.
2/n Don’t chase perfection. You will never have the perfect mic, the perfect laptop, the perfect background, the perfect social media, the perfect editor.
Don’t chase it either.
Nobody loves perfect people either.
