Going down memory lane with Salim Durrani, here is a story for the ages. Durrani scored a 100 against Hall and Griffith in West Indies in 1962. The first few runs were scored without an abdomen guard which he forgot in dressing room! 😄 Also, no proper thigh pad but a towel!👍 https://t.co/Oz2Bjdco8C

"“Dexamethasone leads to manic behaviour,” she says, referring to the steroid that Mr Trump was treated with during his hospital visit. “The fact that he is tweeting 50 times in an hour should tell you something.”  https://t.co/a5ANUWNrvC via @FT

When Adelard of Bath was translating Al-Khwarizmi's books of astronomy from Arabic into Latin in England c1120 he still uses as his meridian the longitude of a place he calls 'Arin'. This is of course Ujjain in MP, where the original readings were taken by Brahmagupta in the 7thC https://t.co/gpWwVAcDqk

Quoted @mpparimal

'અખા ભગત' કે 'અખો' તરીકે વધુ જાણીતા આ કવિ #ગુજરાતી ભાષાના પ્રાચીન કવિઓ પૈકીના એક છે. અખાના જીવન વિશે બહુ ઓછી આધારભૂત માહિતી મળે છે પરંતુ તેમના કવનોએ એમને આજદિન સુધી જીવંત રાખ્યા છે. કવિ ઉમાશંકર જોશીએ તેમને "કબીરનો નાનેરો ભાઈ" કહી બિરદાવ્યા છે. @sahityaakademi @GujaratHistory https://t.co/2fRg97qbdM

17th century Akha Bhagat is most important poet of medieval Gujarati literature.This is my favourite Chhapo ( a poem) of him - "તિલક કરતાં ત્રેપન થયાં, જપમાલાના નાકાં ગયા, તીરથ ફરી ફરી થાક્યાં ચરણ, તોય ન પોહોતો હરિને શરણ, કથા સુણી સુણી ફૂટ્યા કાન, અખા તોય ન આવ્યું બ્રહ્મજ્ઞાન." https://t.co/YppLP1Okbz

Quoted @sanjukta

Masses cannot access original text of Quran so they go by the local Maulana's interpretation. Every Maulana has his own interpretation and tells people around him "this is complete no deviations allowed". As a result you have so many versions each saying my version is correct.

There is only one version. Known as The Usman codex. In Arabic. Not a single word differs from one to another It's easily available online and offline. And there are standard translations available. Hve no idea where you went looking or what you are trying to say or prove. https://t.co/XBpo8NdeU1

The Kala Burj in the Lahore Fort is a summer pavilion from the Jahangir era. Its vaulted ceilings feature European-influenced paintings of angels which symbolize the virtuosity of King Solomon who is regarded as the ideal ruler in the Quran, with whom Jahangir identified. https://t.co/799wbtSmph

High and dry: will India's swimming camels be the last of their kind? Rapid industrialisation in Gujarat threatens the mangroves that kharai camels and their nomadic herders depend on. ⁦@RomitaSaluja⁩ ⁦@GhoshAmitavhttps://t.co/9eW38S5FAt
