SC's Thumbs Up to EVMs, Junks PILs Seeking Return of Paper Ballot System

  • The Supreme Court dismissed PILs seeking return to the paper ballot system or a 100% cross-verification of votes cast through EVMs with voter verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) slips even as it issued certain directions to the Election Commission to strengthen the current voting system.
  • After conducting "an in-detail review of the administrative and technical safeguards of the EVM mechanism", the Bench also rejected the demand for manual counting of VVPAT slips.
  • Giving the thumbs up to the EVM system in the midst of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Bench said: "EVMs offer significant advantages. They have effectively eliminated booth capturing by restricting the rate of vote casting to 4 votes per minute, thereby prolonging the time needed and thus check insertion of bogus votes. EVMs have eliminated invalid votes, which were a major issue with paper ballots and had often sparked disputes during the counting process.

Largest Temple Festival Thrissur Pooram 2024

  • The southern Indian state of Kerala is renowned for its rich cultural tapestry, encompassing a diverse array of religions, landscapes, rituals, and histories. Amidst this vibrant melting pot, one festival stands out as a true embodiment of Kerala's profound cultural heritage – the Thrissur Pooram.
  • Thrissur Pooram is a grand temple festival celebrated with great fervour and enthusiasm, transcending religious boundaries. Although rooted in Hindu traditions, this seven-day extravaganza brings together people from all walks of life, united in a shared celebration of music, processions, fairs, and a spectacular display of fireworks. This year (2024) it was celebrated on April 20.
  • Initiated in 1796 by Shakthan Thampuran, the ruler of Cochin from 1790 to 1805, Thrissur Pooram was born out of a desire to uphold the tradition of temple festivals. Originally, temples would participate in the Arattupuzha Pooram, but due to heavy rainfall one year, they were unable to attend. Shakthan Thampuran's vision paved the way for this grand celebration to take root in Thrissur.
  • The Thrissur Pooram festival is a collaborative effort involving multiple temples, each contributing to its grandeur. The participating temples include Thiruvambadi Sri Krishna Temple, Laloor Bhagavathy Temple, Sree Karthyayani Temple, Kanimangalam Temple, Nethila Kavu Bhagavathy Temple, Paramekkavu Bagavathi Temple, Panamukkumpally Sastha Temple, Pookattikkara – Karamukku Bhagavathy Temple, Chembukkavu Bhagavathy Temple, and Parakkottukavu Bhagavathy Temple.
  • During the festival, a majestic procession of 50 decorated elephants, accompanied by traditional music, winds its way through Thekkinkadu Maidanam of Thrissur to the famous Vadakkunnathan Temple, where Lord Vadakkunnathan is revered.
