The conflict within the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) has taken a new turn as member-secretary Gopinath Ravindran resigned from his post, earlier this week.

As reported by TOI, Ravindran and ICHR chairperson Y Sudershan Rao were at loggerheads. Ravindran had opposed the dismissal of the editorial and advisory board of Indian Historical Review, ICHR’s journal.

When his dissent was made part of the minutes of the meeting of ICHR’s council, Rao had stated that member-secretary is not a part of the council and therefore his views cannot be included in the minutes.

As a result of this conflict, even though the new editorial board of IHR had the office, the minutes were stuck.

Reportedly, Ravindran despite being the administrative head of ICHR, was not consulted and staff from the Bangalore office was transferred to the head office.

As per the report, Ravindran had more than one and half years left of his term.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
