Ellora is a sacred site in #Maharastra. The Ellora Caves are listed by #UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and is celebrated for its Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain temples and monuments which were carved from the local cliff rock in the 6th to 8th century CE. The most spectacular example
is the 8th century CE Kailasa temple which, at 32 metres high, is the largest rock-cut monument in the world.
Located in the Sahyadri hills near Aurangabad, #Ellora is the most important second-wave site of ancient rock-cut architecture in India. In the western face of one hill,
composed of volcanic Basalt rock, there are 35 caves and rock-cut temples, largely produced during the reign of the Kalachuri dynasty in the 6th and 7th centuries CE.

"You Hide Me Still: 50 Years On"- An iconic film shot in 1970 in #BritishMuseum by Nii Kwate Owoo which exposed the theft and concealment of African artefacts in the basement of the British Museum. In 2020 the spirit of #restitution beckons. eventbrite.co.uk/e/you-hide-me-… @EventbriteUK
The seminar Lost Heritage was held at Africa Centre London in 1981. A #UNESCO spokesman noted that it was ironic that the conference was being held in UK, a “country which has given a great deal to the world and to other peoples but which has also taken a great deal from them”
The film "You Hide Me" is the filmmaker's recording of a very important segment of African history: the pillage and the plunder of African cultural artefacts by Europeans by reference to what he uncovered in the #BritishMuseum, much of which is stored out of public view.

For quite some time the #Democrats have maintained that Russia meddled in the American elections of 2016 which brought in @realDonaldTrump as #POTUS.

Trump denies the allegation and the reports to make his election culpable of influence have not been as decisive.

Thread.
I'm starting to believe they were not wrong. In fact, recent developments suggest a conspiracy of epic proportions.

This is my theory:

Russia - a declining power has become the lackey to China. Putin made personal favours to Trump in that build up.
Ever since his inauguration, Trump has been withdrawing the US from its leadership of the Rules Based Liberal Order of which the UN is the centrepiece.

Trump at a meeting of the UN General Assembly said: the future does not belong to globalists but patriots.
