Ravan is revered in this part of world

first_imgNagpur: When effigies of ‘Ravan’ were being burnt to celebrate Vijayadashmi on September 30, Gond tribals in Gadchiroli and some parts of Chhattisgarh were busy in offering prayers to their ‘great king’.A large number of gram sabhas came together to offer prayers to ‘Ravan’ in Surjagad, Kamalapur, and Korchi of Gadchiroli.“Ravan was a great king of Gond tribals. But the people, who practised Brahmnic culture based on hegemony, vilified the history of Ravan to show themselves as great warriors,” said Mahesh Raut, an activist from Gadchiroli.Tribal organisations and village bodies have petitioned the government to stop the practice of burning Ravan’s effigies, but it is yet to act on their demand, he said.Mr. Raut claimed that 70 village bodies in Surjagad, which has been witnessing a protest against the mining, came together under the leadership of zila parishad member Sainu Gota to offer prayers.Tribal organisations and groups, including Tribal Students’ Organisation, Gond Society of Korchi, Gondwana Gotul Sena, Parakrami Gond Raja Ravan Sangh, Buddhist Society of Korchi, and the Halbi Society organised prayers in Korchi.last_img read more

Charges framed against Sunny Deol, Karisma Kapoor in 22-year-old chain pulling case

first_imgA railway court here has framed charges against Gurdaspur MP Sunny Deol and actor Karisma Kapoor in a 22-year-old case of alleged chain pulling in a train at the Naraina Railway Station in Rajasthan during the shooting for a film. The two actors challenged the order through a revision petition in a sessions court on Wednesday.Mr. Deol and Ms. Kapoor, along with stuntman Tinu Verma and Satish Shah, had allegedly entered the station and stopped train 2413-A Uplink Express by pulling its emergency chain in 1997, causing its delay by 25 minutes. The film unit was shooting for a movie Bajrang at Sanvarda village near Phulera in Jaipur district. The Assistant Station Master said in his complaint that a few persons from Mumbai shooting for a movie in a nearby village had illegally stopped the train.After framing the charges under the Railway Act earlier this week, the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (Railways) summoned three witnesses for the next hearing on September 24. The actors have been accused of violating Sections 141 (needlessly interfering with the means of communication in a train), 145 (drunkenness or nuisance), 146 (obstructing a railway servant in his duties) and 147 (trespass and refusal to desist from trespass) of the Railways Act.The revision petition filed in the sessions court stated that the railway court had framed the same charges for the second time after its charges read out earlier in 2009 were set aside in 2010. A.K. Jain, counsel for Mr. Deol and Ms. Kapoor, contended that the September 17 order for framing of charges was against the law.last_img read more
