Is Unique Really Unique?
“Knowledge exists in a give-and-take policy,” claimed KP Girija in the discussion with Burton Cleetus and Dr. Sajeev PV about how politics and power influence heritage. She also classified heritage into four categories: unique, indigenous, folk, and inherited. “A sense of tradition arises from alienation,” said Cleetus while explaining the effect of foreign countries and cultures on our daily lives. He also mentioned how `Ayurveda` was restricted to upper-caste people and how Sree Narayana Guru told Ezhava people not to eat fish and meat.
