chennai’s connection to the impoverishment & depredation of nigeria + our lumpen coconuts: notes


A thread by the twitter handle @DoubleEph (Nigerian centric/focused – or so it appears to be) talking about Nigeria, relevance of understanding one’s history, acting upon it or not etc – came to my notice a few days back and I responded to it, in a thread; this is a reproduction of the two threads – all in the name of archival.First the thread of the other.

I responded to it in a series of tweets as under – because, I don’t think the central point of the above thread is valid, in any case, not so for the case of Bharat. So. (One of these days, I should transcribe my notes about the Fulani Jihad and its lessons for Bharat – but it shall wait)
