Podcast: Congratulations to Yogi Adityanath for restoring the Sanctity of Prayagraj

Amid the ongoing, spirited protest by the Hindu community against the SC Verdict on Sabarimala, is some good news of sorts. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has announced the much-awaited and much-needed restoration of the original name of Allahabad: Prayagraj. To be sure, it is not merely the renaming of a place: it is a major step in restoring the sanctity of Prayagraj, the Tirtha-Raja or the king of sacred places of pilgrimages for Hindus.

This podcast discusses the civilisational importance of Yogi Adityanath’s action at length. The discussion also touches upon several related threads including the behaviour of the Indian English media, our so-called talking heads, and intelligentsia, which is by nature averse to anything that can be called Hindu.
