The film "83" is produced under Kabir Khan Films production house. Quora

Actor Tahir Raj Bhasin has a special reason to be excited over the decision to reopen cinema halls all over India as he is working in the film “83”.

Tahir, who plays legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar in Kabir Khan’s ambitious “83”, said the upcoming film can only be savored as a big-screen experience.


“It is a huge relief that thousands of multiplex employees and businesses that depend on theatres being open will finally get some respite. It is a sector that has endured a very long lockdown. I’m waiting to hear about ’83’ released in theatres after this development! It’s a film that will transform theatres into cricket stadiums and it is meant for a big-screen experience,” asserted Tahir.

The actor is confident that theatres will do whatever it takes to make movie-watching a safe experience. He also urged everyone to be responsible citizens and fight the virus.

“Taking precedence over the jubilation of films in theatres are the safety norms that cinema halls and members of the public must adhere to as a combined effort. Wearing a mask, keeping distance, and avoiding stepping out if we exhibit Covid-19 symptoms are safety self-checks we must stick to. As we celebrate the return of the country’s favorite form of entertainment we also must operate very cautiously around the boundaries of the new normal,” Tahir said.

Children playing ringa ringa roses in an open backyard in England

Great historic events that have shaped the world and changed the outlines of countries are often not recorded in memory, or so we think. Wars made sure to destroy evidence and heritage, and the ones who survived told the tale of what really happened. Folklore, albeit through oral tradition kept alive many such stories, hidden in verse, limericks, and rhymes.

Ringa-ringa-roses, a common playtime rhyme among children across the world, is an example of folklore that has survived for many centuries. It tells the story of the The Great Plague of London which ravaged the city between 1665-1666.

Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.

In modern times, many social movements aim to bring reform to the society we live in, on the basis of certain existing patterns. Patriarchy is something that many aim to cleanse our cultures of, to usher in the era of social and gender equality. Despite all these so-called movements, in southern India, certain societies that patronise matriarchy have existed since before India's independence. The Nairs and Ezhavas of Kerala, and Bunts and Billavas of Karnataka are matrilineal societies that continue to thrive in a patriarchal country.

Kerala remains separate from the rest of India in many ways. Be it literacy policy, form of government, or cultural practices, this state does not always conform to the ideal that India is known for. Even so with their social structure. Certain tribes have remained matrilineal, where the decision-making power rests with the eldest female of the family.
