There is only one word that springs to my mind as I write this.
FAUDA… it means CHAOS in Arabic
FAUDA… FAUDA… FAUDA…
On the sand of Chennai’s Marina Beach where students thumped chests and demanded the reinstatement of the traditional Tamizh bull racing sport of JALLIKATTU - FAUDA
On the streets of global capitals awash with women in pink hats protesting President Trump’s misogynist policies - FAUDA
In airports across the USA enraged immigrants demonstrating against the travel ban from 7 Muslim nations - FAUDA
The tragic farce of dancer Lakshmi Viswanathan first listed and then suddenly UNLISTED as a PADMA AWARD recipient on January 25th - on the eve of India’s 69th Republic Day - FAUDA on social media
And the cream of the crop
The Culture Department- Government of India celebrating the 250th birth anniversary of Carnatic music saint Tyagaraja as a FOLK and TRIBAL FESTIVAL in Maharashtra. With no link or connection to the place or spirit of the genius composer - WTF- FAUDA.
And you want me to write about DANCE.
So you think there was no FAUDA on many stages across India???
