The First Citizen of India


When Shri Ram Nath Kovind filed his nomination for the post of first citizen of India in 2017 backed by the ruling NDA coalition, it took India by suprise. When the expected candidates were some hard core right wing leaders like L K Advani, Murali Manohar Joshy, the BJP played a master political stroke by placing quite a low profile dalit personality to post and hence countering the arguments that they were anti-minorities. He soon began to be regarded as the Pratibha Patil (Former president who excercised nominal powers and was humiliated a rubberstamp president) of NDA.With Shri Ramnath Kovind in office for less than a year its yet to confirm on that premonition.

He with great alacrity approved the disqualification of 20 Members of Legislative Assembly of Delhi(for holding office of profit which is common among many MLA’s of different parties) who are from the Aam Aadmi Party which…

Rosemary Gilliat’s Arctic Diary

Library and Archives Canada Blog

By Katie Kendall

In June 1960, photographer Rosemary Gilliat (later known as Rosemary Gilliat Eaton), along with journalist Barbara Hinds, travelled across the Arctic. Northern Affairs Canada and the National Film Board of Canada sponsored her journey. Her assignment in Iqaluit (formerly Frobisher Bay, Nunavut), Kuujjuag (formerly Fort Chimo, Quebec), Kangiqsualujjuag (formerly George River, Quebec), Killiniq (formerly Port Burwell, Nunavut), and Cape Dorset (Nunavut), was to take photographs of life in the north. During this period, Gilliat kept an extensive diary of her travels, describing the people, places, ways of life, events, and even the flora and fauna she encountered.
