BREAKING: Subramanian Swamy (@Swamy39) has petitioned the Election Commission of India to initiate action against DMK (@arivalayam) as some of it leaders allegedly called for genocide of Brahmins in #tamilnadu ( Source: @pGurus1 )
Swamy in his representation has said that the call for genocide of Brahmins will affect the fundamental rights of the community as they would not go to vote in election out of fear. It is alleged that this would make it easier for DMK to win in several constituencies.
The representation alleges that this threat is in violation of Representation of Peoples Act. @Swamy39 has said that he will adduce legal evidence and arguments for cancelling the registration of DMK and withdrawing their election symbol of rising sun.

4.Bus fares in TN are lower than neighboring states despite hikes in 2011 & 2018
5.Accumulated debt of STCs is now >33000 crore. Interest payment is >Rs.1800 crore/year.
6.Employees per bus ratio is 6.3 against National average of 5.5. In AP & Karnataka it is below 5. This means there are at least 16,000 more employees than there should be for no.of buses

May 21, 1991: Most people I know, and who are in my age group, remember vividly where he or she was and what he or she was doing because of the shocking news of #RajivGandhi's assassination. If it didn't happen, remember, #DMK would have continued in power in #Tamilnadu.
The next #Tamilnadu election would have been in 1994. There would have been an #AIADMK for sure, but not #Jayalalithaa's servile party. In fact, I doubt if she would have been this important at all. The triumvirates who protected J from harm would have been very powerful too
#Rajiv would have come to power with a fractured mandate, but would have continued his reform path because of economic exigencies of that time. It would have been very possible that #Congress made yet another proper comeback in 1996, on the government delivering promises...

#Thread on the 8th phase of archaeological excavation in #Keeladi in #TamilNadu

Keeladi, a Sangam-era site, was first excavated in 2014. The 8th phase undertaken by the State Department of Archaeology began in February 2022

One of the first to be unearthed is a rectangular-shaped dice measuring 4.5 cm made of ivory. The ASI and TNSDA had recovered cubical dice made of ivory and terracotta in the past.

This was the first time TNSDA stumbled upon a rectangular dice after it took over in 2017
Another important finding this season is an intricately designed female figurine made of terracotta. The ASI had also recovered similar figurines.

It's been one year of the #MKStalinGovernment in Recall there was some scepticism. My sense is people are generally satisfied with the level of governance and I would personally rate its performance better than most other states that got new governments in May 2021. #TamilNadu
#MKStalinGovernment 2/n Although one has not seen any "big-bang" moves, the key has been his appointing competent and efficient bureaucrats around him (believe that was the Karunanidhi model too) and @ptrmadurai is an asset providing him the bandwidth for politics. #TamilNadu 3/n
#MKStalinGovernment 3/n Surely, there have been a few stress points on religio-political issues, some isolated controversies and the NEET stand-off But, by and large, the frictions have been less than what one has seen in some other non-BJP ruled states. 4/n #TamilNadu

Okay, I have 2 major doubts in this #HippocraticOath issue at #Madurai:

1. Medical colleges in #TamilNadu were communicated about the change in oath by @NMC_IND 2.5 months ago. It was admitted by the @MaduraiMedical VP in the story (published on Feb 15) below. But...

Why the #TamilNadu govt. did not issue a clarification or circular to all govt. & private medical colleges for the past 2.5 months till April 30, reiterating the stand over a Centre vs. State conflict?

So, why didn't @Subramanian_ma & @RAKRI1 instruct the Director of Medical Education (DME) to issue a circular to all colleges in Feb, immediately when they learnt about the issue, if TN had decided to stick to #HippocraticOath, as opposed to NMC guideline❓❓

CLAIM: #Rama is not known/ worshipped in Tamil Nadu (#Jothimani Congress MP)

REALITY: Incorrect, likely untrue and deliberate disinformation. Here is why👇

Thread on references to rāma/#rAmAyaNa in Tamil literature till 1000 CE prior to kamban (12-13th C CE)

#TamilNadu #Tamil
Puṟanāṉūṟu (5th C CE or earlier)
notes rAma, sIta & monkeys (vAnara). It refers to sIta’s abduction by the rAkShasa & her dropping jewels

கடுந்தெறல் இராமன் உடன்புணர் சீதையை
வலித்தகை அரக்கன் வெளவிய ஞான்றை
நிலஞ்சேர் மதர் அணி கண்ட குரங்கின்
செம்முகப் பெருங்கிளை

#puRanAnURu 378
aganaṉūṟu refers to the victorious rAma in dhanuShkOTi, studying vedas under a banyan tree

வென் வேற் கவுரியர் தொல் முது கோடி
முழங்கு இரும் பௌவம் இரங்கும் முன் துறை,
வெல்போர் இராமன் அரு மறைக்கு அவித்த     15

ஒலி அவிந்தன்று, இவ் அழுங்கல் ஊரே.

Off late there has been a lot of talk about why Chennai/TN aren’t in the startup race despite the talent density and why BLR/MUM/DEL take most of the honours! Here is a 🧵on my take

In the good old days, #Bengaluru was THE place for IT aspirants across India. Any kid choosing to study IT wanted to be placed in the companies hailing from Bangalore

Most Indian IT stalwarts like @Infosys , @TCS , @Wipro and large foreign consulting/product cos chose Bangalore as the hotspot. The city had a unique advantage of having both linguistic and lifestyle compatibility. 3/n

Sri Ranganatha Temple in Srirangapatna, #Karnataka

It is a #Hindu temple. But how many of us know it's connection with #Jainism??

Records say that it was constructed extensively using material of 101 #Jain temples demolished nearby at Kalaswadi by a Vaishnavite Timmaya.
An inscription in the temple reveals it was first consecrated in 984 CE by Tirumalaiah, a vassal of the Western Gangas. He founded 2 temples on the island - one of Ranganatha & a smaller one of Tirumala Deva enclosing them with a wall; & called the place Sri Rangapura/pattana
Ranganatha temple is protected by @ASIGoI. It is just 400 metres away from Tipu's Summer palace in Srirangapatnam. In the early 12th century, Hoysala King Vishnuvardhana (1108-1152 CE), granted the village of Srirangapatna to Ramanujacharya as an Agraharam (place of learning)

For the past 10 years, I've traveled by public transport & I often tells my friends how safe I feel though I travel alone all the time. But it is days like today when I realize I am wrong. Some men do think it is okay to grab a woman's legs as she is sleeping in an overnight bus
This 30 yr old man was staring and smiling weirdly the entire time. Even though the curtains were drawn I noticed his glance a couple of times. At 3am he grabbed the legs & even after I looked, he didn't flinch. He just stared back with a creepy smile, like he was coming for more
I shouted him asking why he thought it was okay to touch another woman & not even feel any remorse or regret. The bus had just 10 other men traveling in it & 2 of them asked what happened. But that's it. He continues to lie down in the berth next to me while I nervously type this
