CPI in Kerala to discuss Vedas, Marxism in seminar

Marxism and Vedas are generally considered as different water-tight compartments. But, in Kerala, this gap is all set to be bridged as the comrades of the Communist Party of India (CPI) are gearing up to discuss Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and Epics along with Marxism.

Kannur-based N.E Balaram Memorial Trust, under the left party, is organising a seminar on Vedas and Upanishads, its culture, art and language, in which experts would present papers on different topics.

Titled "Bharatheeyam 2019", the three-day event would be held at the politically-volatile Kannur district from October 25.

The move is generally seen as an attempt to check the reported growing influence of the Sangh Parivar forces in the southern state and stop the flow of people especially youngsters into BJP-RSS.
