Let us just assume that Britain had not colonized India. And the subsequent plunder had not happened and it had not taken out $45 trillion from India (Source). Where would it have been? Even with all that money, Britain’s current GDP is a pathetic $2.8 trillion! After having looted $45 trillion! India’s is $2.7 trillion. Imagine adding 15-18 times that to the economy!
Amartya Sen has become hyperactive in attacking policies that benefit the people of India, but one fact he has been shy of disclosing during his attacks is his apparent conflict of interest by virtue of marrying Emma Rothschild, one of the heiresses of the world’s wealthiest family. The family have made money off India and the Indian government. The assets of the Rothschilds are estimated to be worth at least US$400 billion and the family has a reputation of enriching itself by finding opportunity even on growing misery around the world. The Rothschild family has a history of manipulating stock markets, funding world wars, engineering large scale decisions in their favour, exercising significant control over the banking system, and owning large media outlets to influence public opinion in their favour.

Yes, Rothschilds made their fortune off of Indian loot. And, yes, Amartya Sen is married to a Rothschild. And inconvenient little detail - a massive conflict of interest, albeit - that he never mentions while talking down about Modi. So next time he opens his mouth to say something - chalk it up to another Rothschild profiteering strategic investment.
The evil of anarchy and violence wrapped human rights, protests, and freedom has now been globalized. The multinational NGOs, corporations, profiteering greedy mafias, and terrorists have joined hands in this very lucrative trade.
They attack an economy and a religious group to encourage pogroms and genocides and when that creates enough anarchy, they profit by shorting the economy once enough unrest has happened and it has lost its economic status. (How George Soros break the Bank of England)
The stakes are high and the vultures unforgiving. Their allies? Our ignorance and apathy.
Hathras and the global links
Before we go there, let us watch this introduction by Arnab for his program last night. Quite obviously, the larger media is asking the same questions that we were asking two days back - #145: Was Hathras an Honor killing?
Why? Because the accused and the victim had 104 calls in the 100 days preceding the victim’s death.
In fact, some journalists who have been to the village are burning with anger. Nitin Shukla suggests that if the police is taken off, the people in the village may actually beat the politicians and journalists up for the fraud they are perpetrating there!
Black Lives Matter and the links to convicted US domestic terrorists
The Black Lives Matter movement was backed by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLM Global Network Foundation). This foundation traces its beginning to three radically left activists - Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi
Also, this group is a funded project of Thousand Currents. The vice-chair of Thousand Currents board of directors was Susan Rosenberg.
Who is Susan Rosenberg?
Susan Rosenberg is a convicted domestic terrorist and radical left activist whose youth was spent protesting the Vietnam War and racism in America. A member of the Weather Underground and other radical organizations which used violence as a tool for political change, Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years in federal prison after being arrested for possession of explosives and weapons during the planning of a number of bombing operations.  She was also a suspect in a 1981 armored car robbery which left one guard and two officers dead. She was released in 2001 when then-President Bill Clinton commuted her sentence. (Source)
Thousand Currents has suddenly become one of the most influential organizations, specifically after it became the fiscal sponsor for Black Lives Matter Global Network.
Major corporations and George Soros ($33 mn) have been contributing to Thousand Currents and BLM.
Amazon announced it would give $10 million to 12 groups, including BLM Global Network Foundation, while Microsoft vowed to give $250,000 to it. Airbnb announced it is giving a total of $500,000 to the NAACP and the BLM Global Network Foundation.
The George Soros-backed Open Society Foundations reportedly contributed about $33 million to groups associated with the Black Lives Matter movement. However, it isn’t clear whether that money made it to the BLM Global Network Foundation, according to Capital Research Center. (Source)
However, earlier this year - July 2020, Thousand Currents handed off the “assets related to Black Lives Matter” to Tides Center. (Source)
And, what is the strength of the Tides Center?
That is quite an ominous and specific set of capabilities when it comes to promoting protests and anarchy.
The Black Lives Matter protests creatively used the one-page site application Carrd.co.
Black Lives Matter Carrds are probably the most common ones you've come across in the wild. They often link to each other, especially when one covers a resource another might have overlooked. In the first wave of police brutality protests this year, many mistakenly donated to the Black Lives Matter Foundation. As people tried to direct the funds to the people on the ground, Carrds started to include more links to local BLM chapters or become exclusively dedicated to bail funds. (Source)
These protesters who have used violence - left anarchist group like - have created tips and tricks across their protest microsites. For example - protesting tips and using social media for sharing best practices. (Source)
Hathras and the Carrd copy-sites
This is exactly the pattern that was sought to be used for the Hathras protests. A Carrd.co based site was created by someone. The cache for the website can be seen here - Source. Its aims and funding showed that its plans were fairly detailed and elaborate.
A day after the Hathras victim breathed her last, a website called ‘Justice for Hathras’ was created and thousands of people were linked to the website through fake IDs. According to the probe, the website had received funding from Amnesty International, Fundamentalist organisations based out of Islamic Countries. The objective of the website was to create a wedge between the majority community in the country and undermine the Yogi and Modi government in Uttar Pradesh and India respectively. Objectionable content pertaining to inciting riots and safeguarding oneself during the riots was found on the website. (Source)
The Enforcement Directorate is already investigating the hand of Amnesty International in attempts to foment riots in UP on the pretext of the Hathras incident. A company linked to Amnesty received dubious export proceeds worth Rs 51crore. A modus operandi used by ISI, LeT, and LTTE in the plot to kill Sheikh Hasina. (Check our edition on Narco-terrorism for the case study)
Sources in the government last week said that ED is investigating against a private company linked to NGO Amnesty International India Foundation for allegedly receiving dubious export proceeds worth over Rs 51 crore. (Source)
This site (below right) was modeled on similar sites in the US created by Black Lives Matter (below left).
Heck, someone even forgot to take out the US BLM references as well! That is why it was suggesting the rioters about ensuring they are aware that in that small town in Uttar Pradesh, New York Police Department (NYPD) was going to film them! (Source)
And of course, so many people would be using swimming goggles in the village ponds and Ganga, with some sunscreen to go along with it!
The aim of the website was clear.
The website instructed the protesters the ways to create chaos and enlisted strategies to target the police and administrative officials under the pretext of carrying out protests. (Source)
The leftist/Islamist groups globally have joined together to replicate their models for protests and violence everywhere.
Indians sleep 9 hours a day on average: A first of its kind survey in India looked at how Indians spent their time in a typical 24-hour day. The aim was to assess how much time was spent on paid and unpaid activities both in rural and urban areas. The results of the survey are expected to provide key inputs for policymaking across various departments and ministries. The Time Use Survey was conducted by the National Statistical office between January and December of 2019. The survey was spread over 5,947 villages and 3,998 urban blocks and covered 138,799 households (rural: 82,897 and urban: 55,902). The survey found that the average Indian spent about 552 minutes or 9.2 hours of their free time sleeping. In rural areas, males aged 6 years and above spent an average of 554 minutes (9.2 hours) in sleep and females spent it slightly extra at 557 minutes. The proportion of time spent on sleep in urban areas was marginally less: males spent 534 minutes in sleep, and females spent 552 minutes. (Source)
Virtual reality shows at Delhi airport: The Delhi airport has launched a facility for passengers to enjoy virtual reality shows in a semicircular structure or dome on topics such as urban landscape and ice age. Located near boarding gate 41 (of Terminal 3), this mini planetarium, having a semicircular structure, boasts of a curved screen that gives a life-size cinematic platform will provide real, immersive, end-to-end travel experiences to the passengers (Source)
How 1 in 5 Indian will get COVID vaccine by July 2021: The Indian government has indicated that around 25 crore individuals would likely be given a double-dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by July next year.“The center is working on plans for building capacities in human resources, training, supervision, etc. on a massive scale and roughly estimate to receive and utilize 400-500 million doses covering approximately 20-25 crore people by July 2021,” said Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan. The “priority population groups” will first receive the vaccine on a priority basis. These include - both government as well as private-sector doctors, nurses, paramedics, sanitary staff, ASHA workers, surveillance officers, and others involved in the tracing, testing, and treatment of patients.

Spinach nano batteries: Researchers at the American University converted the leafy form into carbon nanosheets that help to accelerate an oxygen reduction reaction in fuel cells and metal-air batteries. The team put the vegetable through a multi-step process that included washing, juicing and freeze-drying, manually grinding it into a fine powder with a mortar and 'doping' the results with nitrogen.

the Fire and Fury Corps of India
One of the issues with the Indian forces has been that unlike other countries around the globe, they have only been abused and never given their due. Elsewhere, the forces have a romantic image. In India, they are treated with disdain and mockery by media and intelligentsia even when they deliver far more than any other force in the world with the least available resources. This channel has made some exceptional videos on the high flying corps and fighters within the Indian Armed forces. Worth watching. This was one I just loved. Short, inspirational, and gives you goose-bumps.
XIV Corps or Fire and Fury Corps is a corps of the Indian Army. It is a part of the Army's Udhampur-based Northern Command. Currently, it consists of:
3rd Infantry Division
8th Infantry Division
headquartered at Kumbathang, 28 km from Kargil. During the Kargil War, it consisted of 56th Mountain Brigade, usually stationed at Matayan, 79th Mountain Brigade, usually stationed at Dras, and 192nd Mountain Brigade.
The High Altitude Medical Research Centre (HAMRC), 153 General Hospital of the 14 Corps, is the highest multi-specialty hospital in the world with expertise in high-altitude medicine and extreme cold conditions.
The 14 Corps looks after military deployment along Kargil-Leh and looks after the frontiers with China, Pakistan, and also guards the Siachen glacier. The Indian Army's 14 Corps is strategically important to India as it is used to carry essential supplies to Siachen.
