Dalit Camera : Through Un-Touchable Eyes

S. V. Rajadurai on Rebranding Ambedkar, Reinterpreting India – Understanding the RSS Agenda – Part 1 – 2

The RSS now find it encouraged to expand its energy in strengthening its cultural nationalism that would help diffusing the anger of the masses of India. The anger generated by the blatantly anti-farmer, anti-Adivasi, anti-Dalit and anti-labor policies pursued by the Modi sarkar. From this strategy flows the varied attempts to Brahmanise the minds of the people, the people from the OBC and Dalit communities, and direct their anger not against corporate capitalism, not against casteism, not against imperialism but against the religious minorities by painting them as a devil incarnate. This is quite similar to Hitler's scapegoating of jews for all the ills of Germany.

The idea of this exhibition has been to explore the concept of Dalit Art. What do we mean by Dalit Art is just not by whom the painting is being done by but also what the content of the painting is. So by Dalit Art we mean any art forms which is dealing with the subject of caste and which is being done with a Dalit consciousness.

Dr. Sylvia Karpagam on Public Health and Regulation in Karnataka

If all your investments are going into tertiary care and transplants and you are not talking about how to prevent kidney disease then your pyramid gets inverted. So most of your interventions are at the top, which is at the tertiary level, so health care become very complicated, complex driven by the tertiary care model which is not sustainable. And certainly it will not help in terms of health as a larger social good.
