#NARNARAYANA (nar+narayana)

RAREST classical ancient masterpiece of #Gupta period from temple ruins

Beautifully depicted peace & serenity of meditation

Bhagavat Purana mentions Nar- Narayana as incarnation of Vishnu & in Mahabharat, they are believed to be...

personified as Krishna and Arjuna & are so highly revered that every parva (chapter) starts with an invocation to them

This beautiful panel is at
6th century #Dashavatar Temple, the first Gupta temple with shikhara (almost in ruins)
#Deogarh #UttarPradesh

It is almost a blank in medieval #history of #India before the Islamic invasion. Was it because this was a period when INDIA fought back valiantly against the invading forces and our historians wanted us to believe in timidity of our race?
The #Huns who stampeded over Europe and Persia were thwarted out of India by Joint forces of Yashodharma of #Malwa and Baladitya of #Magadha to beyond Afghanistan in 6th Century. #History #INDIA
The same feat was repeated again when #Huns attacked. This time the Emperor Prabhakarvarman of #Kannauj in now #UttarPradesh fought and pushed them back till edge of Persia.

1/n A little thread on the impact of #9baje9minute on the Indian #Electricity #grid @PosocoIndia @MinOfPower

From @PosocoIndia o data #India's #power #demand at 19:00 hours in the last three #Sundays:

29 March: 110632 Gigawatts (GW)
22 March: 125000 GW
15 March: 144258 GW
2/n #Power #demand at 19:00 hours on similar Sundays last year:
31 March 2019: 149361
07 April 2019: 150735

#lockdown has reduced demand by 35-40 GW primarily as a result of the partial closure of industries and commercial establishments
3/n In 2019, #residential #demand was about 25% of total demand but it likely to be 33% of the total demand today. So, a sudden change in #residential #demand is likely to have a bigger impact.

The National Crime Records Bureau (#NCRB) published the annual Crime in India Report 2018 recently. #DALITWOMENFIGHT's @elite_dalit and @_senpai_i explains what it says about crime and #atrocities against #DalitWomen and children. #TalkCaste #SCSTPOA
As per the NCRB data 2018, the total number of crimes and atrocities reported against the Scheduled Caste is 42793. In these 42793 cases, the rate of filing of chargesheet is 81.3%, while the pendency rate is 27.5%. #DALITWOMENFIGHT #TalkCaste #NCRB #SCSTPOA
The high number of chargesheets being filed also negates the false notion that most of the cases filed are “fake” & out of “revenge”. It’s extremely important to remember that these are only those cases of atrocities which are reported.The actual number is much higher. #TalkCaste

On #girlchildday let me highlight that how rapes have become every day news but hardly accused are proven guilty & convicted.
Here's a thread to highlight & ask them for real #BetiBachaoBetiPadhao .
Some rape statistics I shall share along with Dalit rapes that are ignored.
Recent stats quoting sources .
More than 32,500 cases of rape were registered with police in 2017, about 90 a day, according to the most recent govt data.
According to the NCRB data, 4,15,786 rape cases were reported across India between 2001 & 2017
On average, 67 women were raped every day across the country during these 17 years, or, in other words, about 3 women had been raped every hour.
While 16,075 cases of rape were reported in 2001 across India, this number rose drastically to 32,559 in 2017 - 103% increase .

#CAA hearing begins in the #SupremeCourt. Attorney General KK Venugopal starts by saying the Centre has prepared a preliminary affidavit that will be filed today. Sibal asks for a #Constitution Bench to which #CJI replies saying this might go to the larger bench

Sibal: NPR begins in April so some interim order could be issued..

Centre opposes it, saying arguments will have to be made if any interim plea has to be argued.

AM Singhvi cites UP example, says this is an irrevocable process.

CJI: We may ask them to issue some temporary permits for the time being.

AG: The law itself talks about taking back the citizenship in certain situation.

Thread #India #UttarPradesh In Muzaffarnagar, a woman told us how her home had been vandalised by the police in the dead of the night. Their car, windows, mirrors, electronic appliances, crockery all broken. Jeweller, cash stolen.
She says police told her and her family to leave, and that her home would soon become theirs. She says there were also some people in plain clothes with the police. She says #Muslim families are living in terror in #UttarPradesh
Photos from another home in the neighbourhood. They also told us police barged in at night and broke everything. We heard similar stories in every #Muslim locality we went to. #India #UttarPradesh Police have denied the allegations & told the BBC they've recd no such complaints

One of the 5 who died in Meerut that day was Zaheer Ahmed, shot in the head as he was sitting next to a beedi shop.

“I don’t know who engaged in the violence, but my husband didn’t,” his wife said. “Why did they kill my innocent husband? How can they kill innocent people?”
