New Delhi: Raising a fresh controversy, BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha on Tuesday said that India was in need of leader like Advani who was still fit to be Prime Minister.

“The state India is currently in, with problems on the border and problems outside, we can use someone with the intellect of Advani. He can guide India with his experience and knowledge,” Sinha said.


He further added that Advani was a silver lining in the political clout and he should be put to better use by the BJP.

Speaking about the suspension of Kirti Azad from the party, Sinha said: “Kirti Azad has been fighting corruption against DDCA for 9 years. I find the decision to suspend him is unfortunate. Many inside the party feel that his suspension should be revoked. He has spoken out on corruption not on party, it’s not anti-party.”

Kirti Azad, BJP MP from Darbhanga was recently suspended from the party after he raised the issue of corruption in the Delhi and District Cricket Association during the time when Arun Jaitely was its head.

Sinha also spoke about dissent in the party and said that the ‘Marg Darshak Mandal’ of the BJP was disturbed by the developments happening in the party. L K Advani is also a member of the Marg Darshak Mandal.

Sinha added that if the party wants it could expel him, but he would not go silently as he was not involved in any anti-party activities.

Sinha’s autobiography ‘Anything but Khamosh’ (Anything but Silent) is scheduled to be released on Wednesday by Advani. (Photo: tribune.com.pk)

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
