Tamil Nadu: On March 13, Sankar, a 22 years old graduate was killed in Udumalaipettai town of Tirupur district in Tamil Nadu on a busy marketplace in daylight in the name of honor killing.

His alleged crime was that he married a woman of the upper caste.


Honor killing, as we all know, is a shameful tradition performed in the name of the belief that the victim has brought shame or dishonor upon the family, or has violated the principles of a community or a religion, usually for reasons such as refusing to enter an arranged marriage or marrying a person from a different caste.

This couple reportedly studies in the same private engineering College in Tamil Nadu and married each other. This was not approved by the families and hence, as a result, Sankar, the husband was stabbed to death in a busy road market in broad daylight.

He died on his way to the hospital while the woman, her wife, suffered serious injuries while trying to save him.

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.
