The Moplah Revolt of 1921.

What is revealed is how rapidly the  All India  #Congress retreated whenever the masses were in motion, and how in this case a strategic political retreat necessitated a communalist rather than class view of an important peasant (1/25)

Death anniversary of #Tagore today. We do not know what the author of our National Anthem would have said about the #Tiranga campaign. But we do know how strongly he opposed uber patriotism any hyper nationalism. 1/n
“Patriotism can’t be our final spiritual shelter. I will not buy glass for the price of diamonds and I will never allow patriotism to triumph over humanity as long as I live.” #Tagore #Tiranga 2/n
“I am willing to serve my country; but my worship I reserve for Right which is far greater than country. To worship my country as a god is to bring curse upon it.” #Tagore #Tiranga 3/n

श्रीमान @rautsanjay61 विचारतायत की, नेहरूंशी वैर का? राऊतांनी विचारलेल्या प्रश्नाचे उत्तर मी या थ्रेडमध्ये देतोय,
नेहरूंनी त्यांच्या कारकीर्दीत अभिव्यक्ती स्वातंत्र्याची आणि लोकशाही मूल्यांची अनेकदा गळचेपी केली. त्याची ही काही उदाहरणे (१/n)
नेहरूंनी केंद्रीय कायदामंत्री #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांना डावलून गोपालस्वामी अय्यंगार यांच्या हातून कलम ३७०चा मसुदा तयार करून घेतला आणि लोकसभेत बळजबरीने मंजूरही करून घेतला. देशाच्या कायदामंत्र्याला डावलून घटनादुरुस्ती झाल्याची ही भारतातली एकमेव घटना आहे. (२/n)
कलम ३७० हे भारत आणि भारतीयांवर अन्याय करणारे आहे असे #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांचे ठाम मत होते. कारण, नेहरूंनी जम्मू-काश्मीर विधानसभेला अमर्याद अधिकार देऊ केले होते. (३/n)

1/n #SadarPranam to Ishvara within you @MamataOfficial

Thought of reminding you words of #Tagore on his jayanti.

Read thread.

"There are two religions in earth, which have distinct enmity against all other religions. These two are Christianity and Islam. "
2/n #RabindranathTagore continues: "They are not just satisfied with observing their own religions, but are determined to destroy all other religions. That’s why the only way to make peace with them is to embrace their religions."

Source-Original works of Rabindranath Vol. 24
3/n #Tagore writes in Parichaya,

"When two-three different religions claim that only their own religions are true and all other religions are false, their religions are only ways to Heaven, conflicts can not be avoided.

Since most people are unaware of the significance of #Muharram or the sacrifice of Hussain please bear with me as I recite the history of #Karbala every day

Karb ( anguish) and Bala ( calamity) were the name given to the land of Nainawa where Imam Hussain and the male members of his family ( excluding an ill son) were martyred along with his companions. The ladies were imprisoned & taken to Syria
#Muharrum #Karbala #twittermajlis
When Yazid son of Mu'awiya declared himself as a ruler over the Ummah, he demanded Imam Hussain 's allegiance . Imam
flatly refused
Yezid floured the tenets of Islam as taught by the Prophet and #Hussain said,
"Someone like me, does not pledge allegiance to someone like him”.

#OnThisDay in 1919 was born Vikram Sarabhai, the father of India's space programme. But Sarabhai was much more than just a scientist, living an extraordinarily full life. Read on to learn more about him! #VikramSarabhai #ISRO #India #history #funwithfundas (1/23)
According to a popular (unconfirmed) story, Rabindranath Tagore, a part-time phrenologist, seeing the baby Sarabhai's large and unusually shaped forehead, pronounced that "this boy will achieve great things". #tagore (2/23)
For those wondering, phrenology is a pseudoscientific study of the shape and bumps on the skull to predict a person's character and traits. It was very popular in the 19th century. (3/23)

Today is the 159th Jayanti of Rabindranath Tagore (25th day of Baisakh).
“We want to draw a veil over our past to appease the Muslims… We have done it for a long time. It is time we lift the veil from our eyes.”- #Tagore Read his thoughts on #Islam 👇…
#RabindranathTagore conceived of Bharata, the sacred land of India, as a Divine Being that has guided the course of our nation since ancient times. Read about the deep spiritual significance in masterly composition which is our #NationalAnthem.
"..Possibly, the Hindus & Muslims can make a fake friendship to each other for a while,but that cannot last forever. As long as you don't purify the soil,which grows only thorny shrubs you cannot expect any fruit"- #RabindranathTagore…

“In India there is no common birthright"

#RabindranathTagore 's eviscerating takedown of Nationalism on @IndianHistory_C had addressed CAA and the economic and social crises we are in the midst of before their time

Read it for it is the compass we need…
“Nationalism is a great menace..It is the particular thing which for years has been at the bottom of India’s troubles.”

It wasnt easy for Tagore to write these words at a time when the subcontinent was in the throes of an exacting and passionate freedom struggle but he knew..
"India is many countries packed in one geographical receptacle”

“It is just the opposite of what Europe truly is, namely one country made into many”

If only policy makers and consent manufacturers cd remember #Tagore's words

This essay is full of gems…

విశ్వకవి, జాతీయ గీత రచయిత, నోబెల్ అవార్డు గ్రహీత శ్రీ రవీంద్రనాథ్ ఠాగూర్ జయంతి సందర్భంగా ఆ మహనీయుడి స్మృతికి ఘనంగా నివాళులు అర్పిస్తున్నాను. ప్రాచీన, ఆధునిక భారతీయ విధానాలను తన రచనల్లో మేళవింపజేసిన గురుదేవుడు.. యావత్ ప్రపంచం గర్వించదగ్గ గొప్ప కవుల్లో ఒకరిగా నిలిచిపోయారు. #Tagore Image
రవీంద్రుడిని ప్రపంచ సాహితీకారుల సరసన నిలిపిన గొప్ప కావ్యం ‘గీతాంజలి’.. మనిషిని కృంగదీసే నిరాశ నిస్పృహలను వీడి సకల సృష్టిని ప్రేమభావంతో చూసి శ్రమ గొప్పదనాన్ని సూచించే మహత్తర సందేశాన్నిస్తుంది.
నువ్వు ఒక అడుగు ముందుకేస్తే.. విజయం నీవైపు పది అడుగులు ముందుకేస్తుందన్న వారి రచనల స్ఫూర్తిని నేటి యువత పుణికిపుచ్చుకోవాలి

The #JallianwalaBaghMassacre is the middle. The violence began with a promise of freedom. Which was eventually won through more bloodshed and resistance to an oppressive and blind #BritishEmpire.

Rather than Freedom Indians were punished under more draconian laws.

The #RowlattAct broke the last illusion of the masses awakened the masses to #Swarajya #SelfRule and a spirit to achieve it by any means.

Are forecasts we misspell,
But of what life or scene he who has measured
The boundless heavens can tell.."
