UP Conversion Law (The Legal Reality)
Play • 1 hr 30 min
The Uttar Pradesh government has recently come up with an ordinance against "Love Jihad". In our previous podcast on this subject, we discussed The Ground Reality with Swati Goel Sharma. In this podcast, we look at the law itself with Nikhil Mehra. Is the law really needed? Is the solution to the problem of systemic grooming going to get solved with a law? Or is this a case of bad law and order in our society? Nikhil will give us clarity on many of these issues in this podcast.

#17: Can Social Movements Change the Balance of Power in Educational Systems?
Two decades ago, a survey found that only about one in four Adivasis in Tamil Nadu's Gudalur town were literate and the rate among women was  even lower. Adivasi student enrollment in specialised public schools was extremely low and the conditions of the schools were far from adequate. “Non-Adivasi teachers and staff showed little empathy or  concern for the Adivasi children,” write the three guests for today’s episode. This grim picture has transformed significantly in much deeper ways than the brush-stroke statistics shared above. We’ll learn about the story of this transformation. A scholar and two educationists join us on Research Radio today. Amman Madan studied anthropology and currently teaches at Azim Premji University, Bengaluru. Dr Madan works on  promoting dialogue and justice through education. Rama Sastry has been a  passionate teacher who has taught marginalised children for four decades. B Ramdas has also been in the education space for four decades,  and along with Rama, is a trustee of the Viswa Bharati Vidyodaya Trust,  Gudalur, Nilgiris. Before we hear from them, a little more  context: Rama and Ramdas, along with their colleagues, have worked to  actualise the transformative potential of education for Adivasi students  in the town of Gudalur, located in the Nilgiris. The town is home to  five Adivasi communities: the Paniyas, the Bettukurumbas, the  Mullukurumbas, the Kattunayakas, and the Irulas. They constitute about  10% of the population of Gudalur. And we’ll learn more about their  educational journey based on their article: "Social Movements and Educational Change: A Case Study of the Adivasi Munnetra Sangam."  Audio courtesy: The last ones by Jahzzar [CC BY-SA 3.0].

#95 - Battleground Kerala: Will Pinarayi Vijayan return? | Bharatvaarta | Politics
Kerala is scheduled to go to the polls in May. Politically, it has  largely been bi-polar, with power alternating between the CPI(M)-led  Left Democratic Front and the Congress led United Democratic Front.  While the Pinarayi Vijayan-led LDF government has praised for having  delivered welfare schemes efficiently during the Kerala Floods of 2018,  it’s recent mishandling of the COVID pandemic and also the spate of  scams has cast a shadow on its performance. In the UDF, the Congress’  decline politically has mirrored the rise of the Muslim League who are  now a more assertive ally, causing tensions between various allied  demographics. The Kerala Congress (Mani) split, with K M Mani's son Jose K Mani,  allying with the LDF has made matters grave. Meanwhile, the BJP has seen  a groundswell of support in recent times led by Prime Minister Modi’s  own popularity; he has inaugurated multiple infrastructure projects in  the State, recently, including the 2,000-MW Pugalur-Thrissur high  voltage direct current (HVDC) power transmission corridor. On this episode, we are joined by political experts and commentators, Ananth Krishna Subhalakshmy and Rohit Jayaraman for a deep dive analysis  of what factors could influence the results of this upcoming election.  This podcast is available on YouTube, Apple, Google, Spotify, Breaker,  Stitcher, and other popular platforms.If you like this episode, then  please like, subscribe and share!

What Nodeep Kaur’s arrest says about plight of landless farmers
On 12th January, the Haryana police arrested Nodeep Kaur, a Dalit labour activist while she was protesting against the non-payment of wages at Kundali industrial area (KIA) at Sonipat, Haryana. Kaur is from Punjab and the leader of Mazdoor Adhikar Sangathan, who is supporting ongoing farmer’s protests at the Haryana and UP border. US Vice President's niece Meena Harris tweeted her picture asking her to release brought her to notice. Farmer’s uprising circling National Capital got momentum and support across the globe, which asked the Central government to repeal three farms laws, which was passed through ordinance last year. United farmers organizations had 11 rounds of talks with the government and submitted 8 point charter. That demand includes the law on Minimum Support Price or MSP and repeals those three laws, which are related to open market trading, contractual farming, and excluding many products from the essential commodity list. The one issue, which is still missing from the farmer’s protest and on their agenda is Landless farmers or farm laborers issues. The 2011 census data shows that 71% of Dalits are landless laborers. In rural areas, 58.4% of Dalit households do not own land at all. Landless farmers belong to Dalit and Backward community with depressed wages and vulnerable to caste atrocity on daily basis. The host of this episode of The Suno India Show, Prashant Kanojia spoke to Nodeep Kaur’s sister, Rajvir Kaur and her mother, Swarnjit Kaur. We also spoke to farmer leaders and protestors from the protest site and a journalist from Bihar. While explaining how the farm laws would affect landless farmers, they also highlighted the issues related to landless farmers and labourers, which has been undermined and is not on the agenda of the ongoing protest. They explain how these farmers are not recognized as farmers and how they could widen the protest across India.  See sunoindia.in/privacy-policy for privacy information.

Sonia Faleiro on Life and Death in India’s Heartland
One night in the summer of 2014, two teenage girls living in a remote village in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh went missing. Hours later, they were found dead and hanging from a tree in a mango orchard. A media frenzy ensued that propelled the case to the front pages of national newspapers and prime time cable news. It was quickly decided that this was another clear-cut case of rape and murder in India’s heartland. A haunting new book, _The Good Girls: An Ordinary Killing_, by the author Sonia Faleiro reveals that the truth, however, is far murkier. Sonia is Milan’s guest on the podcast this week and the two discuss the origins of _The Good Girls_, the notion of honor in contemporary Indian society, the pervasiveness of caste in the Hindi heartland, the troubled state of policing, and the battle Indian girls face even before leaving their homes. Parul Sehgal of the _New York Times_ has this to say about _The Good Girls: _“‘The Good Girls’ is transfixing; it has the pacing and mood of a whodunit, but no clear reveal; Faleiro does not indict the cruelty or malice of any individual, nor any particular system. She indicts something even more common, and in its own way far more pernicious: a culture of indifference that allowed for the neglect of the girls in life and in death.” Episode notes: * Parul Sehgal, “A Double Tragedy in India and the Search for Elusive Answers,” _New York Times_. * Rafia Zakaria, “Death in the Mango Orchard,” _The Baffler_

Ep. 84: Stories from Ancient India with Vivek Ram
In this episode, Karthik speaks with Vivek Ram, a celebrated animation artist who has worked in films like Madagascar, Superman returns, fast and the furious, and the Incredible hulk. He has also been a part of the academy award-winning team that did the VFX for The Golden Compass. In the studio that Vivek has set up called 'Vanara Sena', his title is not CEO but Senapati. In the episode, Karthik and Vivek speak about the mission of Vanara Sena which is to bring to life stories from ancient India and its scriptures, with animation as its vehicle. They speak about the differences between Hollywood and Indian animation industries and also about how we as a country have not explored the depths of our own mythologies, having restricted ourselves inexplicably to just a few protagonists and narratives. They also talk about how at the confluence of art, technology, and popular culture, Vanara Sena is finding the opportunity to revolutionize Indian storytelling, visually. You can reach out to Vaanar Sena studios on https://www.vaanarsenastudios.com/ Follow Vivek on Instagram & Twitter: (https://instagram.com/markeviv) (https://twitter.com/markeviv?s=21) Tweet to Karthik Nagarajan (@The_Karthik): https://twitter.com/The_Karthik and follow his WordPress handle here (filterkoffee.com).
