The Aam Aadmi Party has strongly condemned the false media reports speculation about AAP veteran and ombudsman Admiral L Ramdas. The Party has termed these reports as false, misleading and based on fiction done with a malicious intent.

A section of the media today reported that Admiral Ramdas could face heat from his colleagues in the coming days as a section of the party leadership feels his controversial letter lamenting differences acted as a catalyst to the public spat between leaders. Media reports stated that Ramdas had addressed a scathing letter to AAP’s national executive a day ahead of its meeting on February 26, expressing anguish over the growing divide and trust deficit between the senior leadership.

Clarifying its stand regarding Admiral Ramdas, AAP has outrightly rejected all frustrated attempts to drag his name into controversy and termed those reports as unfortunate and against all ethics. Admiral Ramdas will continue to be an important guide for the party as it prepares to take on new responsibilities and challenges.

“The party considers it a privilege to have been able to convince Admiral Ramdas to take over the role of its ombudsman and will be always thankful to him for having agreed to render his services for this critical role. Admiral Ramdas will continue to be an important guide for the party as it prepares to take on new responsibilities and challenges,” AAP said in a press statement today.

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
