Patna: BJP enlisted three RSS pracharaks among its 40 star campaigners proving the support of RSS for BJP with high political stakes of RSS in mind.



A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader from Dina assembly constituency was addressed as a BJP candidate since.

“The RSS has fully thrown its weight behind the BJP in Bihar polls. Thousands of RSS cadres and supporters from different parts of the country have been working to help the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to defeat the grand alliance of the Janata Dal United, Rashtriya Janta Dal and the Congress” stated a BJP leader.

Another senior BJP leader communicated to IANS that RSS leaders Ram Lal, Saudan Singh and Nagenderji would campaign in all 243 assembly constituencies and address public meetings to garner votes for BJP candidates.

The BJP is contesting 160 assembly seats with ally Lok Janshakti Party (40),Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (23) and Hindustani Awami Morcha (20) seats.

JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh said a new development in Bihar polls could be the appointment of RSS leaders as star campaigners in BJP (pointing towards the backing of BJP by RSS in the polls.)

Sanjay Singh indicated that senior party leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had rightly described the RSS as the supreme count of the BJP. He questioned that was it the RSS that controlled the BJP and his government alike?

Safety-pins with charms

For all the great inventions that we have at hand, it is amazing how we keep going back to the safety pin every single time to fix everything. Be it tears in our clothes, to fix our broken things, to clean our teeth and nails when toothpicks are unavailable, to accessorize our clothes, and of course, as an integral part of the Indian saree. Safety pins are a must-have in our homes. But how did they come about at all?

The safety pin was invented at a time when brooches existed. They were used by the Greeks and Romans quite extensively. A man named Walter Hunt picked up a piece of brass and coiled it into the safety pin we know today. He did it just to pay off his debt. He even sold the patent rights of this seemingly insignificant invention just so that his debtors would leave him alone.

Sesame oil bath is also called ennai kuliyal in Tamil

In South India, Deepavali marks the end of the monsoon and heralds the start of winter. The festival is usually observed in the weeks following heavy rain, and just before the first cold spell in the peninsula. The light and laughter that comes with the almost week-long celebration are certainly warm to the bones, but there is still a tradition that the South Indians follow to ease their transition from humidity to the cold.

Just before the main festival, the family bathes in sesame oil. This tradition is called 'yellu yennai snaana' in Kannada, or 'ennai kuliyal' in Tamil, which translates to 'sesame oil bath'. The eldest member of the family applies three drops of heated oil on each member's head. They must massage this oil into their hair and body. The oil is allowed to soak in for a while, anywhere between twenty minutes to an hour. After this, they must wash with warm water before sunrise.
