Kolkata: Many BJP workers were seen joining All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) on Sunday. These members, who gathered at Hemanta Basu Bhawan, were former members of AIFB, who had left the party to join BJP.

Many who left BJP and returned to AIFB complained that BJP had changed its agenda. Dipa Chakravarty, a BJP candidate in the last Kolkata Municipal elections, claimed: “We joined the BJP in the hope that it will fight the misrule of the Trinamool. But with the tacit understanding with the BJP and the Trinamool, we have decided to leave the party,”

Ali Imran, party’s MLA and general secretary of the youth wing, Yuva League, said that “The home coming you are seeing now started a few months back. Those (who) had left us have finally realized that the BJP is a non-entity in Bengal”. He further claimed that ‘ghar wapsi’ (homecoming) started a few months ago.

Anirban Chowdhury, former secretary of Yuva league, party’s youth wing and also one of the AIFB leaders who joined the BJP in July 2014, returned to the party a few months back. (Photo:

An illustration of the nursery rhyme, Jack and Jill

A hilarious rhyme that children often chant cheerily while jumping around, Jack and Jill is another example of the dark history covered up in light-hearted rhyme. Instead of England though, this is a rhyme that sheds light on the history of France.

Unlike other rhymes, the rhyme is part fiction and part history, since only the first two lines can be taken as an allusion to the past.
