Friends, Followers and Countrymen,

With the sole motive of making the message of Dharma reach every Dharmik in the country, I started the Mahabharata series on TFI.
For many people Mahabharata starts with Bhishma and ends with Duryodhan-Bhima fight but it’s absolutely incorrect.
Mahabharata begins long before Pandavas were born and continues long after they were gone.

BR Chopra’s TV Series is what most people think Mahabharata is, but it’s not even 40% of the original Mahabharata.
TFI’s recitation of Mahabharata is the original Vyasa version of Mahabharata with zero additions or modifications.
And it’s not just a podcast-y recitation. I have tried to keep it as engaging as possible with artworks by friends Rachana R from Chennai, Kunj Verma from Delhi and music by Ankita Chowdhury from Assam.
Every week I read and rewrite around 10000 words, practice every single word at least thrice before presenting it on camera. The artists painstakingly recreate scenes from Mahabharata, video editors seamlessly integrate the audio and visuals together to create a visual spectacle.
No one who works at TFI is unpaid, we pay decent salaries to everyone in the team. The entire project takes a lot of time, effort and of course money.

But the series is a flop. I won’t ask for money, read on…
On an average our videos garner 50,000+ views, Mahabharata episodes fizzle out before even reaching the 5000 marks. So, is the audience at fault here? Or have we been making the episodes badly?
The answer to both the questions is NO. We have been reaching to the wrong audience is probably the reason.
So, I am creating another YouTube channel only for ‘Dharmik’ pursuit. Mahabharata will be our first offering, but we will keep working on bringing other Mahakavyas, Puranas and other texts from ancient Hindu History.
If you think you have the time, patience and hunger for ancient Hindu History, please subscribe to the channel. I promise to never let you down.

Here is the link -…
Now I will give you a brief overview of the episodes:
EP01: Mahabharata | Mahabharat’s concise description – What led to Shri Krishna Dwapayan Vyas to write Mahabharata

Ep06: Mahabharata | Janmejaya gets cursed by Sarma the divine female dog – Sarma the celestial female dog curses Janmejaya that his Yagya will never get complete
Ep07: Mahabharata | Uttanka gets angry on Nagraj Takshaka – Nagraj Takshak steals from sage Uttanka which he doesn’t appreciate and gets enraged
Ep08: Mahabharata | Sage Bhrigu curses Agni Deva – an enraged Bhrigu curses Agni Deva and Agni Deva disappears

A day in the mind of an Indian-liberal - a 2 part thread story.

LeLi wakes up at 10:00AM

He stretches with a loud yawn.
“What crazy dreams I see these days. This aayega to Modi shit is supremely annoying”, the LeLi wonders. He looks around himself.
Heaps of clothes scattered all over the floor, half eaten Maggi on the side table, flies buzzing all over it. Che Guevara passes seductive glances from the wall.

PM Modi’s US tour could easily have been a disaster, but PM Modi averted it - a thread.

Now that the dust around PM Modi’s US trip has settled, the sounds of Dhols and Nagadas have subsided, let me bring to you the biggest success of PM Modi’s US tour.
Had it been any other prime minister, this US tour would have been a nightmare but PM Modi’s credibility, charisma and global standing prevented it.
Let’s first of all understand Biden and the invisible hands that guide him. Democrats and American Deep State were given a telling blow by Donald Trump who threatened to burn their empire to the ground. Donald Trump was dumped unceremoniously.

Team TFI did an expansive coverage of the brutality that took place exactly 100 years ago. @tfipost and @tfipost_in editors painstakingly went through books, newspaper archives and a lot of information to filter truth from propaganda.
What we found was absolutely horrifying.

In this thread, I will take you on a virtual tour of Malabar Hindu Genocide. It will shake your soul.
1) Do you know the seeds of Moplah Massacre were sown in the times of Hyder Ali and his tyrant son Tipu Sultan? Here is a truly forgotten chapter from Indian History.

Demography is indeed the future. Why Trudeau will never be a full majority PM and why Canada may never have a conservative government - a thread.
Canada is the immigration headquarter of the world. Virtually anyone can immigrate to Canada - whether they want to move as a student, with a job, or with family.
Between 1815 to 1850, roughly 800,000 immigrants moved to Canada from all over the world but chiefly from the British Isles. It was the time when Europe was becoming richer through the Industrial Revolution.

Why you mustn’t feel bad about UK’s Covid racism against India. You should, in fact have a nice laugh about it - a thread.

I am even proposing a nice hashtag for them - #TechnicallyChallengedBrits
So the UK still living in the Great Britain Utopia has no idea what technology really is. First they couldn’t control coronavirus. Yes, despite being an Indian, I can say this with absolute confidence. UK registered 2022 deaths per million, for India the numbers were around 1366.
And that happened despite UK boasting of world class hospitals and great living conditions. India, despite a very high population density, managed to keep mortality rate very low.

Leftist journalists were running a cleverly orchestrated anti-Indian vaccine campaign possibly at the behest of global Big Pharma.

In the first phase of the campaign, they excessively criticised the vaccines. Narrative about general efficacy, and side effects were pushed.
The second phase of the campaign focused on a possible shortage of vaccines even after Indian government repeatedly told that there is absolutely no shortage of it. India’s decision to give vaccines to other countries was severely criticised too.
Third phase of the campaign was about the efficiency of the government itself.

Will India be able to vaccinate its massive population?

Does India have the infra to conduct such a large scale vaccination drive?

These were the questions that were thrown incessantly.
