Ep. 15: Journalists in Jail is a Stain in a Democracy feat. Robert Mahoney
Journalism in India has become an extremely hazardous profession. It was never easy, but in recent years, journalists are being intimidated, imprisoned, and even killed. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) - headquartered in New York, monitors the safety of journalists worldwide. This week, host Sidharth Bhatia is joined by Robert Mahoney, Deputy Executive Director of CPJ, who leads the organisation's reporting, editorial and advocacy worldwide. A former journalist from Reuters, Robert is familiar with India having served in the New Delhi in the 1980s. On this episode, Sidharth talks to Robert about his thoughts on the global scenario of journalism as it stands today, what differences or changes he has observed through 2020 and beyond, whether it's gotten better or worse for journalists over the years around the globe, the trend of seeing some democracies becoming increasingly authoritarian over the last 10 to 15 years, and much more. They also discuss where India stands in terms of press freedoms and harassment of journalists - especially when talking about journalists being killed with impunity and journalists being put behind bars. How did it come to this? Tune in for an eye-opening conversation.

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.

Reporters Without Orders Ep 155: Farmer protests and Priya Ramani case
In this episode, host Ayush Tewari is joined by Newslaundry’s Akanksha Kumar and Anna Priyadarshini. The conversation starts with the reporters sharing the bizarre news stories of the week, from an Indonesian woman claiming a gust of wind made her pregnant to the Indian higher education regulator UGC asking universities to encourage students to write a “cow science” examination. The discussion begins with Anna’s report on the verdict in BJP leader MJ Akbar’s defamation case against journalist Priya Ramani. Akanksha then talks about her experience covering the ongoing farmer protest at Singhu on Delhi’s border. On how the farmers plan to adjust their protest to the approaching summer and their apprehensions about the new agriculture laws, she says, “Another fear they have is that with the entry of private players contract farming may result in some sort of exploitation. Their fears are not completely unfounded, they do have a basis.” Akanksha also talks about her story on Dilbag Singh, a farmer from Pubjab who cycles around the Singhu protest to lift spirits.  Ayush then moves to Anna's report investigating Rinku Sharma’s death at Mangolpuri which the Hindu nationalist ecosystem has sought to communalise. Anna shares her experience covering the story and what the people there felt about the reporter’s presence in the area. This and a lot more as they talk about what made news, what didn’t, and what shouldn’t have.  Tune in!   Recommendations Akanksha  Newslaundry Investigation: Reality of ‘Love Jihad’ in Kanpur Return From ISIS Anna  To the Harvey Weinsteins of the world by Priya Ramani Ayush  Reporter: A Memoir by Seymour M.

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.
