According to D.D. Kaushambi, Mahishasur’s realm was Mahoba in Bundelkhand. In connection with the research for my book, I reached Mahoba on 2 October and found that Mahishasur’s memories still survive in the folk traditions here.

These days, I am editing a book Mahishasur Movement: Debrahmanising a Myth.

On Feb. 24, India’s education minister Smriti Irani mounted a spirited defence of her government’s recent actions at the Hyderabad Central University and New Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

It is by implicit rule of the government that if an Adivasi woman is unmarried then she is a naxalite, because naxalites don’t marry. In ‘Naxalite Test’ in order to prove that, the Adivasi woman is not a naxalite, she is forced to take out milk from their breast.

The test is applicable to all women irrespective of their age and even the breast feeding mothers are not untouched. If milk is not coming from their breast, she is a naxal. The ‘scientific’ explanation given by the authority for this test is all those who are married…
