Part II of the betrayal by PM I K Gujral (IKG). #Thread

IKG served as a PM between April 1997 to March 1998.

And R&AW suffered massively. As usual, IKG wanted peace with Pak. What did peace mean for IKG?

Peace meant closure of the two secret operations by the covert groups of R&AW as a goodwill gesture to Pak:

Counterintelligence- X (CIT-X) for Pak & Counterintelligence- J (CIT-J) for Khalistan (funded by ISI to separate Punjab from India).

A low-grade but steady campaign of bombings in major Pak cities, Kar@ch! and L@hore were carried out.

This forced the head of the ISI to meet his counterpart in RAW and agree on the rules of engagement as far as Punjab was concerned.

Morarji Desai(MD) #Thread

Our late Prime Minister Morarji Desai blew India’s most critical covert operation, fully compromised our secret services, & helped Pak make the “Islamic bomb”.

MD a staunch follower of Gandhian philosophies, was a morally corrupt man.

India’s Pokhran test in 1974 triggered the arms race between India & Pak. Being very wary of India’s fledging nuclear capabilities, Pak sought any help needed to build nuclear weapons for itself.

Operation Kahuta, one of the deadliest missions of RAW was launched in 1974 with the motive to locate and confirm the existence of the Pak’s secret weapons program.

It took around a decade for RAW to build a network within Pak under the leadership of RN Kao.

I wish to narrate a real life incident of my friend.

My friend's father (let's call him X), a 75 year old man with diabetes and high BP tested positive earlier this month.

We wondered which hospital to admit him - municipal or private.

The decision was taken out of our hands, when we realised that municipal hospitals had no free beds. Similar was the case with the private hospital nearby.

After inquiring with several hospitals on phone, we got one 5 kms away from the house. We felt relieved.

By evening 8 pm, he was admitted in the private hospital. Next morning around 9 am, his oxygen levels started dropping. The doctor gave us the prescription of Remdesivir injection.

The pharmacy attack to the hospital didn't have it.

Kashi Vishwanath Temple history

In 1194, more than 1000 temples were demolished by Qutub-Al-Din-Aybak. These sites remained untouched for the next 50 years till Razia Sultan constructed a mosque on the forsaken place of the Vishwanath temple.
Vishwanath temple was reconstructed in the area of Avimukteshwara, which again faced partial destruction by Mahmud Sharqi.

In 1494, Sikandar Lodi demolished several temples including the Vishwanath temple.

In 1585, a scholar Narayan Bhatt rebuilt the temple.
Mahmud Ghazini and Shah Jahan (1627-1658) demolished all reconstructed temples.

It was Aurangzeb in 1669, who ordered the demolition of Vishwanath temple and built a Gyan Vapi mosque.

Aurangzeb destroyed several temples but also wanted to change the name of Varanasi.

Authors of this article are: By Vikas Pandey & Shadab Nazmi

BBC selects five different states to check the spread of the virus.

1. Kota
2. Allahabad (they still have problems with Prayagraj, it seems)
3. Kabirdham, Chattisgarh
4. Bhagalpur and Aurangabad in Bihar
5. Nainital, Uttarakhand
My observations:

1. Why were the two worst affected states not included?

2. Was it because they were non-BJP?

3. Why most BJP states were included? (Four out of six)

Please think on this and think how much one should trust BBC.

Ashta Siddhi

Ashta Siddhi is mentioned in Patanjali Yog sutra and can be obtained by very few through countless years of practice and devotion to all eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga.

Siddhi can loosely be translated as accomplishment or a special power or unusual skill.
The eight Siddhis are:

1. Anima: Reducing one’s physical self to the size of an atom.

2. Mahima: Expanding one’s physical self to infinite level

3. Garima: Making one’s physical self so heavy as immovable by others

4. Laghima: Becoming almost weightless
5. Prapti: Being able travel anywhere in the Universe

6. Prakamya: Can know & understand what is going on in one’s mind. Can understand other person’s min.

7. Ishitva: Possessing title of Bhagwan

8. Vashitva: A seeker can subdue any person/thing

One of the five Maha-Vrats in Jainism is Non-attachment/Aparihraha.

Jainism believes that the more worldly wealth a person possesses, the more he is likely to commit sin to acquire and maintain the possession, and in a long run he may be unhappy.

The worldly wealth creates attachments, which will continuously result in greed, jealousy, selfishness, ego, hatred, violence, etc.

Bhagwan Mahavir has said that wants and desires have no end, and only the sky is the limit for them.
An attachment to worldly objects results in the bondage to the cycle of birth and death. Therefore, one who desires of spiritual liberation should withdraw from all attachments to pleasing objects of all the five senses.

In continuation to my thread on Mudras.

Abhay Mudra is an important gesture in Indian iconography.

In it, the right hand us raised & opened, straight up, raising forward.

Abhay literally means fearless and the gesture indicates blessing, protection & reassurance
The gesture is ancient and widespread and is found in the iconography of Buddhists, Jains and Hindus.

Bhagwan Buddha and the Tirthankaras are frequently seen using this gesture. Bhagwan Shiva, in his Natraja, or divine dancer, pose has his upper right hand in the abhaya mudra.
In Thailand, and especially in Laos, this mudra is associated with the movement of the walking Buddha (also called 'the Buddha placing his footprint'). It is nearly always used in images showing the Buddha upright, either immobile with the feet joined, or walking.

Bhagwan Mahavira was born on the thirteenth day of rising moon of Chaitra month, 599 B.C. in Bihar. This day falls in the month of April as per English calendar. His birthday is celebrated as Mahavira Jayanti day (This Sunday is Mahavira Jayanti).

Let's celebrate it together. 🙏🏽 Image
Mahavira was a prince & was given the name Vardhaman by his parents. Being son of a king, he had many worldly pleasures, comforts, & services at his command. But at the age of thirty, he left his family & royal household, gave up his worldly possessions. Image
He became a monk in search of a solution to eliminate pain, sorrow, & sufferings.

He spent the next 12 & half years in deep silence & meditation to conquer his desires, feelings, & attachments. He carefully avoided harming other living beings including animals, birds, & plants

@pahadanladki @Rajat_Hind : This thread is dedicated to my two friends.

Declining a prestigious job in the US, a 28-yr old prodigy graduating from one of the Ivy Leagues, Princeton, chooses to return back to the motherland at a time when his future prospects looked bleak.
Two decades later, the young man had not only pioneered the science of building India’s most celebrated space vehicles PSLV and GSLV but also raised to be the country’s topmost cryogenic scientist.

This is the story of one of India’s greatest space scientists, Nambi Narayanan
He envisioned the need for liquid fuelled engines for ISRO’s future civilian space programmes.

Decades later, India envisioned a cryogenic engine project at ISRO and signed an agreement with Russia for transfer of technology to develop cryogenic fuel-based engines.

Real life incident.

The Government puts some restrictions and curbs to break the pandemic chain. People say it's essential. Fair enough.

The local municipal corporation adds to it and puts its own regulations.
Some people like me do read the 18 page document sent by the Government. Most won't.

They say we shouldn't allow sweepers/domestic helps to enter inside the Society till they are either given vaccine/tested negative.
So naturally we try to get them vaccinated. But then the hospital says we are short of vaccines. They tell us to ask the Central Government.

Next step: get them tested. The municipal hospitals don't have space to accommodate so many people. So we have go to private labs.

Mudras – meaning ‘seal’, mark’ or ‘gesture’ in Sanskrit – are said to intensify the effects of our yoga or meditation practice and enhance the flow of energy. They are also used in Indian classical dance.
Any living body is made of 5 distinct elements :
Fire, Wind, Ether/Space, Earth, and Water.

According to Ayurveda, disease is the result of an imbalance in our body caused by a deficiency or an excess of one of these 5 elements.
The 5 fingers represent : Thumb:fire, Forefinger:wind, Middle finger: space, Ring finger:earth, & Little finger: water.

The fingers essentially act as electrical circuits & the use of mudras adjust the flow of energy which balance these various elements & accommodate healing.

The author just intends to place facts in this thread, the conclusion and hence its consequences are individual choices of the reader.

Forgive me for the long thread.

Jaggi Vasudev/Sadhguru:
1. Accused for his wife's murder:

Vijaykumari’s death took place in January, 1997. The cremation ceremony didn't even wait for her own father to do her last rites. Why?

The office answer given by JV is that she attained Mahasamadhi. If it were true, why hurry for cremation?
Anyway now the case is closed due to 'lack of evidence'.

2. The Cauvery matter: Rejuvenating rivers by giving missed calls (similar to free TN temples).

He collected funds for planting trees on the banks of river Cauvery. The Karnataka HC has taken up this case suo motu.

Placing very strong points about some people, without naming those "celebrities". Please ponder upon these.

Several of our Sanatanis follow such people and these "celebrities" time and now hurt our religious feelings, and demean our culture in several ways.
What those people who delight in running down the Hindu culture forget is that Sanatan Dharma and our culture at large have been very self critical.
As a result of this self-critical attitude, several bright sparks rebelled against particular aspects of Hinduism and started their own religions, the Buddha, Mahavira, Basweshwar, and so on.

Since I got an outstanding response, I have decided to go ahead.

So here it is :
"Gandhi met Kallenbach in 1904 while working as a young lawyer in Johannesburg, and the two men are said to have become fast friends," GlobalPost Senior Correspondent for South Africa Erin Conway-Smith said. Image
"Today you can visit and even sleep in the house that Kallenbach designed for Gandhi in 1907, and where the men lived together for about two years."

Gandhi lived with Hermann Kallenbach, a German-Jewish bodybuilder and architect, in the years before he travelled back to India.

A Leader, Commander, and a guiding beacon that led an entire nation and her armed forces — Field Marshal Kodandera Madappa Cariappa was the first Indian Commander-in-Chief of the Army.

Let's us check how Chacha treated this Hero.
Sadly just two months after Partition, Pakistan Army sent infiltrators into Baramulla area. The Maharaja of Kashmir on 26th of October, 1947 signed the Instrument of Accession to the Union of India. Indian Army urgently shifted to Srinagar to defend the territory.
A lot of delay was caused by Mountbatten, the Governor General of India & by the PMO’s Office in giving a green signal.

Gen Cariappa managed to shift the Indian Army by air in nick of the moment. The Indian Army successfully repelled the attack & drove back the infiltrators.

Connecting to my previous thread on "Myths and Mythology", I thought it was the right time to get into the Archeological evidence on Mahabharata.

Are you ready?
1. Senior archaeologists at the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) claimed that the Sanskrit epic Mahabharata could date back to 1500-2000 BCE, instead of 900-1000 BCE (Obviously, it can't be without evidence).

The claim follows the findings at the excavation site of Sanauli, 68 km away from Delhi,includied “war chariot” allegedly driven by a horse, a rusted bow & arrow, a burial site and ochre coloured pottery, war shields, whip, torch and an antennae sword with hilt.

My today's Sanskrit lesson :

महासुभषितसंग्रह :

आशा  नाम  मनुष्याणां  काश्चिदाश्चर्यशृङ्खला  |
यया बद्धा प्रधावन्ति मुक्तास्तिष्ठन्ति  कुत्रचित्  ||

Translation in Hindi :

आशा नाम की एक अदृश्य जंजीर से बंधा हुआ मनुष्य का जीवन आश्चर्यजनक रूप से प्रभावित होता है। जो व्यक्ति इससे बंधे हुए
होते है, वे तो इधर उधर भागते  हुए  नजर आते है और जो व्यक्ति उसके द्वारा बंधे हुए नहीं होते हैं वे कहीं भी आराम से बैठे हुए नजर आते  हैं।

The life of those people bound by an invisible chain of hope & insatiable desire is affected in a very surprising manner. Those who are bound by this invisible chain run amok, but those who are not bound by it are found to be relaxed & contented in all circumstances.

All religions and all ideologies (eg: communism, liberalism and so on) are a part history and a part myth.

As for religious myths, the academic types might want to read Joseph Campbell's book, "The Power of Myth".
I put down below some quotes of his :

1. Each myth is psychologically symbolic. Its narratives and images are to be read, therefore, not literally, but as metaphors.

2. Myth is much more important & true than history. History is just journalism & you know how reliable it is.
As far as ideologies are concerned, their mythology lies in their tall claims about their success in the real world. As we all are aware, this whole ideology of communism has proved to be just a myth as it has failed everywhere.

Today on the Birth Anniversary of Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw, I wish to narrate how our hero was treated by the Government then.

One of the several reasons, Sam Manekshaw was treated badly, is mentioned in the tweet below 👇🏽

When Dr.Abdul Kalam was the President, he visited Coonoor. On reaching, he came to know that Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw was in the Military Hospital there. Dr.Kalam wanted to visit Sam, which was unscheduled. Arrangements were made.

At the bedside, Kalam spent abt 15 minutes talking to Sam & enquiring abt his health.

Just before leaving Kalam asked Sam "Are you comfortable? Is there anything I could do? Do you have any Grievance ? or any requirement that would make you more comfortable?"
