A thread that’ll prove that Periyar, founder of DMK in his own words in verifiable public records, was not just anti Brahmin but also anti Christian, Islam, Gandhi-Nehru, women & democracy So why would DMK target only Sanatan/Brahmins? We’ll tell you why in the end. Don't miss! Image
Periyar’s direct speech on Gandhi, Nehru & the constitution Image
This are his actual words on women in DK newspaper. Image
In this direct quote from Viduthalai (16 April 1950) on Scheduled castes Image

Periyar E.V. Ramasamy writing in his magazine Kudiyarasu, and he is being unusually mild here. (Naan Sonnal Unakku Yen Kopam Vara Vendum, vol. 4, p. 532, compiled by Pasu. Gowthaman). Image
Now comes the best part. He accused Ambedkar for selling himself to the Brahmins. (Periyar E.V.R. Chintanaikal, Anaimuthu, 1974, p. 1,860). No comments here. Image
Now some nice quotes directly from him for our dear democracy warriors. Periyar’s writings compiled by Pasu. Gowthaman, vol. 4, 2017, p. 432) Image
Some Muslims along with Darul Shah, a Muslim Tamil scholar, called Periyar ‘Islam’s enemy no. 1′. Sundara Sreenivasa offers a brief summary of Periyar’s criticism on Islam drawing from primary sources.
Periyar, in his very last speech made in December 1973, said the following. Mohabbat ki dukaan - anyone? Image

So why DMK only targets Brahmins Answer lies in shloka

अश्वं नैव गजं नैव व्याघ्रं नैव च नैव च |अजापुत्रं बलिं दद्याद्देवो दुर्बलघातकः ||
Not the horse, the elephant or the tiger either.Sacrifice the lamb, the meek.God kills the weak.

Brahmins are weak soft targets - that’s why

Third thread of interesting but less known nuances of Panipat 3 with book screen shots of Vishwas Patil’s novel. Some bloodcurdling details will shock you. Don’t miss. Image
In Panipat 3 Bhau made a MAJOR mistake of carrying too much dead weight unarmed civilians so far from home in a territory without confirmed allies. Hard to understand why he would do such a thing! Maybe he was 30 & immature? But why didn’t seniors veto him? Mystery. Image

First understand the fundamental meaning of money. The note you hold in your hand would be worth nothing if it was a piece of paper. But it’s not. It’s a promissory note from a government that denotes material value. Image
Humans used barter system of exchanging one good/service for another on need basis for a long time but it wouldn’t scale as civilization & specialization expanded. Hence came coins & notes which by themselves are not valuable but are backed by a promise of value Image

Pranayam - the core of the yogic framework. The practice of leveraging breath to first improve basic quality of life but eventually to her higher stages of consciousness. This thread lists out 9 main types of pranayams that you can incorporate in your daily life easily Image
1. Anulom Vilom (Breathing from alternate nostrils ): Inhale through one nostril, exhale through the other. Alternate nostrils for several cycles. Similar to the practice of Nadi Shodhana Image
2. Dirgha Pranayama (breath in three parts): Inhale deeply, first fill lower lungs stop then middle portion stop then upper portion stop. Exhale fully. It establishes an optimal resting breath and utilises the entirety of the lungs. Image

Thanks to movies we have this impression that medieval wars were basically two armies rushing at each other, cavalry charging at full speed & a massive hand to hand fight of 50k-100k men till one army is left standing! Read this thread to know how it actually used to play out! Image
Super elite top boxers can only last 30 mins (12 rounds of 3 minutes with breaks) in close hand to hand combat with no armor before their legs start wobbling. Regular mortals won’t last 5 mins in an intense hand to hand fight Image
Best thoroughbred race horses last 2 miles (approx 5-6 mins) in full gallop and top speed only for 30-40 seconds. The only thing they can be for a prolonged period for 20 odd miles a day is slot trotting. Image

There is a concept in Yoga called Pancha Kosha - the 5 levels or planes of existence.

We learn many western psychological frameworks in courses like MBA & sociology but never this! - Why?

Want to know this profound concept in very simple words? - read this short thread!
Annamay Kosh (Physical): This is your Physical body and 5 basic senses. Can be maintained by healthy diet & exercise.
Pranamaya Kosha (life Energy plane): Non matter Life force energy within. This needs breath work like pranayama to maintain.

Can you believe it took an LGBTQ+ activist to make me realize the purpose of “religion”!!

Used to wonder why humans, - the most intelligent species obsess over something as unintelligent“religion”.

A casual statement by a fiery activist gave me the eureka moment - read on
Once in high school was with 2 Muslim friends deciding where to eat. They saw one eatery with an Islamic symbol & quickly gestured with their eyes to each other to pick that one. I happily went with their choice. But never thought why they picked that amongst 10 other options
Fast forward 2 decades - during an inclusivity workshop an LGBTQ+ activist said “When faced with too many choices on what to buy I always pick the company with a rainbow flag” and it was EUREKA!
