    871: Review: Nuanced Screenplay, Performances Make ‘Panga’ a Winner

    871: Review: Nuanced Screenplay, Performances Make ‘Panga’ a Winner

    Panga is a film about a woman trying to live her dream. A dream she put in abeyance because life took an unexpected turn. It would be reductive to call Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s latest film just a sports drama. A kabaddi player trying to be back in the team is one thread that holds it together. However, unlike other such movies where everything is a lead up to that big athletic moment of adrenaline rush, Panga ‘s beauty lies in its soft, almost non-confrontational resistance against all odds to fulfill one’s desire.

Amidst the storm around Faiz’s poem ‘Hum Dekhenge’ in India, complete with the constitution of an IIT committee to judge the verse, The Quint's Nishtha Gautam spoke to Dr Hashmi about Faiz’s life, poetry, and wit.

    866: Who is an Indian Citizen? How India Has Defined Citizenship Over the Years

    866: Who is an Indian Citizen? How India Has Defined Citizenship Over the Years

    “How are we making Indian citizenship so ridiculously cheap?”
    I know what you’re thinking. Another story on what a politician thinks about citizenship in India. Except, this is not an argument made in 2020. Or even 2019. This is from 1949, when PS Deshmukh, India’s first Agriculture Minister, was debating citizenship in the Constituent Assembly.
    Who is an Indian citizen, who isn’t and who can be — this is a question which has been debated in India since Independence.
    Now, as we discuss Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019; the National Register of Citizens, and the aftermath of India’s partition again, let’s see how this debate has changed.
