Playing with the Same Card

The video-collage is a scathing audiovisual critique of the existing political parties in India. It highlights the fact that all the national parties in India behave in the same manner when it comes to religion. For garnering votes (in other words, for enriching the vote-bank), the religious or communal card is exploited by every single party by means of participation in various ritualistic performances or institutions. The mask of secularism is foregrounded while the latent religious mindset is deliberately foreclosed. Ideologies are forgotten or hypocritically banished altogether from the spectrum of parliamentary politics. The collage ends with a positive note, i.e., with the goal of a non-coercive, partyless democratic space.

  5. Dear Rahul Gandhi,
    A gentle rem(a)inder for you: Your grand grandfather first used the term #Scientific_Temper. Your grandmother included it in our constitution. However, it is matter of regret that it is in oblivion!
    India is the first and only country to adopt “scientific temper” in its constitution. In the 42nd amendment (1976, Article 51 A(h) was added under the Fundamental Duties that states:[It shall be the duty of every citizen of India]To develop scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform. Each party is trapped by the BJP’s religious card!

      1. Playing with the same religious card as played by the BJP. A domain of mutual resemblance, mirroring, aping! Mimicry at the highest level from a Buddhist scholar!
