was barricaded by the police, allowing only students with ID cards to enter. The police discouraged students from gathering and standing in groups outside colleges like Ramjas andKirori Mal to keep the possibility of any confrontation between rival political parties to the minimum.

Today’s voting, which took place in 50 DU colleges affiliated to DUSU across Delhi, will decide the fate of candidates from the major parties: AkhilBhartiyaVidharthi Parishad (ABVP), National Student Union of India (NSUI), All India Student Association (AISA) and the newly formed Aam Aadmi Party backed ChhatraYuvaSangharshSamiti (CYSS).

“A total of 35 candidates are contestingthe four posts of DUSU office bearers. While nine candidates are in race for the post of President, eight are vying for Vice President’s chair,” DS Rawat, DU faculty and Chief Election Commissioner for DUSU polls said.

Talking to NewsGram, ABVP National Secretary RohitChahal said, ” ABVP won all four seats last year, and we’ll win them this year too because we have worked for the students. This year we are focusing on women safety, improving hostel facilities, solving the rent problem faced by students living in the vicinity of campus.”

Although all parties had similar promises to make to the students like rent control, women safety, better connectivity for far away

colleges, they basically differed in their outlook towards other parties.

While ABVP members felt that CYSS and NSUI have been indulging in muscle and money power politics, NSUI members blamed CYSS of the same.

“Arvind Kejriwal has fooled the people of Delhi, but he will not be able to do that with DU students. CYSS stands no chance in the DUSU elections even with all the muscle and money it is employing.” Vivekanand Pathak, National Sectary, NSUI told NewsGram.

Although DUSU elections have always been a tough fight for all the participants, the debut of AAP’s CYSS in the political area of DU this year will definitely give everyone a run for their money.

An illustration of the rhyme Three Blind Mice

The Reformation in England is notorious for the religious impact it had on the countries of the world, and the current ongoing dispute among the various factions of Catholicism and Protestantism. Three Blind Mice, a rhyme that emerged in 1609, roughly a few years after the death of Queen Elizabeth I, is somewhat a dark reminder of the Dark Ages.

The Reformation began in England when King Henry VIII broke away from the Catholic church because he wanted to divorce his wife, to marry another woman who would bear him a male heir. His wife was a devout catholic and refused to give up her crown to another. The king decided to break away from the Papacy, from Rome, where the Catholic church reigned from. He created the Church of England, and put himself as the legal head. England broke into two factions based on religion, and after Henry's death, the country was plunged in war.
