Thiruvananthapuram: The RSS-Sangh Parivar agenda is similar to what Hitler pursued, a CPI-M leader said on Monday.

Addressing reporters here, politburo member Pinarayi Vijayan said the RSS and the BJP were trying their best to divide the society on communal lines in the name of Hindutva.


“The RSS is trying to do what Hitler did,” he said, referring to the attacks on Muslims and Dalits.

He quoted RSS leader MS Golwalkar as praising Hitler’s ideology.

“We wish to know which Hindu scriptures say that killings should be done,” said Vijayan, a senior leader in Kerala of the Communist Party of India-Marxist.

He said the people of Kerala had seen through the agenda of the Rashtriya Swayasewak Sangh in trying to forge an alliance with the SNDP, the social organisation of the Hindu Ezhavas.

“This has come a cropper as the SNDP is not in the hands of a few. We see serious differences of opinion breaking out in the Ezhava community over this,” said Vijayan.

Tomatoes are a staple in the Indian diet, be it a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian dish

Tomatoes are a staple in the Indian diet, be it a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian dish. It has to be a part of each meal in some form. As puree, paste, flavour, or diced into the dal. This tangy, sweet, and juicy ingredient was not always Indian. In fact, it did not even grow in India until the British sanctioned it. It is a product of colonization and has come a long way to become part of our everyday meals.

Originally, the tomato was considered poison. Its actual native is debatable. Some say it is European while others argue that is came from indigenous parts of Spain and Portugal. Either way, it is a plant species that is associated with the legendary Nightshade. It looks very similar to this poisonous plant that tomatoes were not even harvested for a long time, for fear of picking Nightshade instead. It was believed that Nightshade caused the blood to turn to acid and that tomatoes had the same property. Later research proved that the plant itself may be poisonous but the fruit is not.
