“Twitter India is growing with a positive trajectory, in fact, one of the fastest-growing markets for Twitter in the world.


“While we are on the lookout for a unique leader who can take the team to the next level, Twitter India has an interim country head, Balaji Krish, who is in charge and leading the team forward,” a Twitter spokesperson told IANS.

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female.
