I'm a firm believer that the pandemic and lockdowns have made us more opinionated.

Actor Ayushmann Khurrana feels the pandemic and lockdowns have made people more opinionated than before, adding that only superlative content would bring the audience back to theatres post-pandemic.

Ayushmann, whose film "Article 15" completed two years of release on Monday, said: "Article 15 is a special film in my filmography and I can't thank (director) Anubhav Sinha sir for giving me one of the most cherished films of my career.

"It was an eye-opening film for me and helped me see things from a different lens. We will need films like Article 15 with its superlative content to pull people back to theatres."

Talking about going back to the theatres, Ayushmann said: "We will need to be disruptive and present fresh content for people to enjoy, engage and discuss.

"I'm a firm believer that the pandemic and lockdowns have made us more opinionated than before and people would only want to invest time and energy on things that are unique and different. They would want to have worthwhile community experiences."

Ayushmann is a firm believer that fresh, unique and disruptive cinema will manage to restart the theatrical business in India.

"Cinema will provide them with that option but we will have to produce the best content that we have ever produced. People will want to be entertained with films that celebrate new ideas. The scale of the film will be immaterial because the content will take precedence in a whole new world," is Ayushmann's opinion.

The actor added that people have already been exposed to brilliant content from across the world. "So, for them to step out to a theatre to watch a film they need a huge incentive and content will play this crucial role. People will want to watch brilliant films."

Ayushmann will soon be seen in "Chandigarh Kare Aashiqui" directed by Abhishek Kapoor, "Anek" directed by Anubhav Sinha and "Doctor G" directed by Anubhuti Kashyap. (IANS/AD)

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.
