From less than 2% attendance to 100% - An inspiration to ALL #teachersaround the world.
Indian village teacher Ranjitsinh Disale, who transformed the life chances of young girls at the Zilla Parishad Primary School, Paritewadi, Solapur, Maharashtra, India, has been named the winner of the Global Teacher Prize 2020, in partnership with UNESCO.
Ranjit's win was announced on the 3rd December 2020, in London, UK
The impact of Ranjitsinh’s interventions has been extraordinary: there are now no teenage marriages in the village and 100 per cent attendance by girls at the school. The school was also recently awarded the best school in the district with 85% of his students achieving A grades in annual exams. One girl from the village has now graduated from University, something seen as an impossible dream before Ranjitsinh arrived.
From less than 2% attendance to 100% - An inspiration to ALL #teachersaround the world.

Did a group of UK MPs mislead the Britsh Parliament by paraphrasing the India's opposition politians without any basic research whatsoever?
The Express Tripbue > India comes under fire in British parliament over CAA, Delhi riots
How the British Public funded BBC and British Media failed to report imparially that BOTH Hindus and Muslims were killed during the fatal riots?
Is the British media, in this case, in breach of impartiality by paraphrasing the Indian opposition politicians without due resarch?
Farahnaz Ispahani, who also served as the Advisor to Pakistani Prime Minister, said the non-Muslim population in the country has dwindled to a meagre three percent now from 23 percent during the Partiton of united India.

Here is a series of contrasting reports that show how the same western media houses that demanded a lockdown in their countries, have condemned, castigated and criticised India for having the foresight to implement it. Is this irony at play, is it ignorance or is it simply a deep-rooted anti-India agenda at play? This is for the readers to decide:Read more
“The Washington Post, for example, is spoilt for choice. Almost all the think tanks are within a 2-km radius of the newspaper’s K Street headquarters in Washington DC. They can seek out op-eds by Jeff Smith at the Heritage Foundation, Ashley Tellis at Carnegie, Dhruva Jaishankar at Observer Research Foundation (ORF), Sameer Lalwani at Stimson Center, Richard Rossow at Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) – all of whom will be less than a 20-minute walk away. These people are classified as serious experts on topics ranging from the Indian economy to Indian nuclear weapons. Yet, the newspaper’s star interpreter of India is Rana Ayyub Why?”

The BBC's bias against India is well-logged, and regularly railed about in the Indian press. The Hindu newspaper's Premen Addy was an especially fierce critic. He accused the BBC of being Indo-phobic, and focusing on India's poverty more than its socioeconomic achievements.Over the years, it has been called both a left and right wing mouthpiece, depending on who got rubbed the wrong way. Still, how can the BBC have such an independent agenda? For starters, it is run by a Royal Charter, and not an Act of Parliament. This means the Lordships have more say in the editorial content than public officials. Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher claimed to have "fought three elections against the BBC" during her political career.Read more

Known India and Modi baiter US-based Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has been caught yet again blatantly lying and attempting to vitiate the atmosphere. IB officer Ankit Sharma was killed by a Jihadi mob allegedly led by AAP leader Tahir Hussain and the same was corroborated by eye-witness accounts. Ankit brother Ankur Sharma too had blamed Muslim rioters and anti-CAA violent protesters for the murder of Ankit Sharma. He clearly says that Ankit was dragged by the Muslim mob while he was returning from duty when he was attacked and dragged into the building belonging to the AAP leader Tahir Hussain.Read more
In the summer of 2014, the influential British weekly The Economist — also read by a section of India’s decision-makers — created a minor flutter by endorsing the Congress. Actually, more than being enthusiastic about the UPA-II that had completed an uninspiring five years, the magazine was outrightly disapproving of the challenger, Narendra Modi. Its argument was less focused on the future of Indian capitalism under Modi but principally centred on the BJP’s alleged programme of social divisiveness.Read more
The reason writer Aatish Taseer signed up for the recently aired Al Jazeera documentary series ‘In Search of India’s Soul’ was because the producer didn’t want the typical Western documentary about India, in which Left-wing talking heads go on about the rise of fascism, but something that would deal seriously with the Hindu sense of hurt, perceived or real, that was causing the present conflagration.Read more

Huffpost’s anti-Hindu propaganda is visible, yet again, from its report on Chandni Chowk temple desecration
Huffpost India, formerly known as HuffingtonPost India should once again consider changing its name to something more appropriate such as “Hinduphobicpost India”. In its latest attempt to malign Hinduism, Hindus and the political right wing, the opinion blog has tried to twist basic facts about the Chandni Chowk temple desecration case in Delhi so as to favour its preferred Hindu-bashing narrative.Read more

Some pissed off Hindus from the LGBTQ community brought this to our attention. A Hungama event was held at Colors Hoxton club in London recently, where again we witnessed how Hinduphobic Nazi propaganda via appropriating Run DMCs art promoted under the guise of attacking the CAB/CAA bill in faraway India. This is the reason behind so many attacks on Hindu temples, Hindus and Hinduism recently by colonised native protesters.Read more
