In this episode, we talk about political prisoners in India. Dissent in India is seen as an “act of treason” by both the government and the propaganda fed public. This has created a crisis in the form of indiscriminate arrest of dissenters all over the country.
We talk about the movie “The trial of Chicago 7” directed by Aaron Sorkin and an article about political prisoners by Bhanwar Meghwanshi. Our guest, movie maker, and activist Saumya Tejas talks about the visual book she is working on the 2020 Delhi pogrom.

S. Golwalkar).
