My Indian Life: Live in Delhi – BBC News
Hi guys I’m poke cake. Indian life live it’s a special live version of our podcast from the BBC World Service and what it means to be a young adult and to be Indian in the 21st century, Stephens College in Delhi, since right now here I always smiling up with me. It’S yes. It’S very, very hot. Everyone is also finding themselves. I understand, I hope that you don’t pass out in the next hour. I hope you can survive, but right before that we have something else. Some of my contribution of the series is Shaun of the Dead. It is very hot in this very hot he has a very beautiful and difficult Journey when she talks about in the podcast. I think he’s reached a point of success now, where he’s getting a lot of rain ignition for his work, but back home with his parents. It’S still a struggle to make them understand what he does, that you cannot do. No, the professional thing to do, and I want other people to understand it’s not shameful to accept anything different. But in my head I’m not different at all, I’m as normal on head. I’M all fine, so what does it feel like to listen to yourself on the podcast say that thing you don’t realize a lot of people will be listening to I like normal confrontational. I had a very difficult time with he said that his son is very self-centered and has no respect for him. What position does is not more important than what his community thinks of him. No, my dad he’s not ready to listen when he’s staying in the answer. That is more important to me than the community understand except your own individual. You cannot love your comment that you cannot love your Society VR the communitive. If you cannot improve yourself, you cannot go to the Future parents and kids in India. You know and the family expectations. So do you think that is changing today in Indiana we have that bar in ourselves that we can actually change mindset. You know if I was saying that I’m so scared of a father who can kill me, but right now, I’m in the same house I’m coming. If he’s not accepting it same time, he’s not even shouting at you what you wearing and what were you doing out? Trust me if this can happen that I can come out of the stupid I’m going to move on to our next contributor, which is Aditya, and he needs to be in one of the most competitive in Bollywood being being a musician. A big part of my job is not speaking and it took a while and the second I got the chance to do that. I hope I hope I think you’re in front of you, but I have a confession to make now adityanath the only time I figured out that it was the wrong way. Remember palpitating in the list with you and then I kind of excuse myself and went to the bathroom and screamed at my manager and try to Google you and introduce myself and we had such a lovely conversation. I’M glad that I could get this off my chest. Thank you. Forgive me. I love you play my manager stories, which I love to lecture you openly, but I might get the might not get work change my stage name of this, not my name but just dropped, how to say my name, which is the worst part or all the best, Because people really really have to kind of weight the song, it’s called Elsa and it talks about a longing means: bunny cage. Okay. So now we’re going to sing the spot, I’m going to start small and tell you guys, I don’t think so. I think I just leave: let’s go hey name headaches of a human. Thank you so much guys she has done quite an incredible performance, which I had the lack of things cuz. It’S not easy to get to see that performance and I’d like to ask at the place where the body initially used to be dressed only in underwear and then would go on to file on lots and lots and lots and lots of clothes. While talking about all the things that you careful how we need to get home by a certain time, what all we need to do, the precautions we need to take Act sounded so serious, but I really like to laugh even if I don’t look like that, but I do like to laugh, and I like to make people laugh, send the best reactions to your feet. The worst, I guess, is when people drama controversy around it and most people drama controversy around other people who haven’t actually watched it that from audiences that I can only say that we underestimate our own audiences. You know, I think that we are far more advanced than opening our thinking and this one time when I was in Kerala and I performed at the International Date Festival the only theater Festival in India, in which I have performed this piece. Where one boy much later wrote to me on Facebook, so lot of lot of guys that live on Facebook, so this guy rode hello sister. First time I saw you naked lady, don’t because he didn’t know how to adjust me any other way, but call me sister. So sister and it’ll cool honest, you know, that’s all you had to say no, yet what is the difference between safety for women and safety for men and all the tattoos which I like to call it dope wallet versus the vagina debate, safeties also for men? Please. I wanted to say yes, because I want to say that that is a lot of discussion. Now that’s happening, especially the standing of wattages to mean say that especially consent. I think things like ensenda getting questioned rapidly and you know it is happening. At least it’s happening. You know, like you, do whether it is okay now to say this to this touch like this, so I think attitudes are shifting, but I also have to stay in the same breath. Unfortunately, that largely the attitude is, do destructive women and women safety. I’M in this more and more and more and more with every understand my daughter, that is how deep the problem problem runs. That is how much work has to be done. Thank you so much and all of you and asking questions and the platform to all of you. I would really like it Sean to do a little warm up by demonstrating some of the can. We have a couple of volunteers, please so White. Can you see me all right and she me thank you so much you really you guys. I think he went to what’s your name? Okay, what do you get? Can we please you’re wonderful questions, and so the question is, do you know down the ages? Women and nudity has been this concept of trying to identify all you don’t be mean, and you know it by the body, especially you bringing food nudity in this situation. Now I would like to ask you because of these past Endeavors or showing women and objective Community, do you think that is a negative context to why it is been? You know I did to you to do women like this. No, I mean could use this thing. I mean you know, I can’t deny the fact that when people looked look at me that the body is also a sexual object, the body as a sexual object give me the body, of course, a lot more because it is objectified by the market. Mostly right, it is also objectified for viewing pleasure of the other is not what you should be so concerned. You should be concerned about your attitude you should be concerned about. That is what I’m not entirely sure answer your question event dinner dinner spirals. How do we do with these intricacies and like these wedding, without of things that come with? It mostly feel when I’m dancing whatever you love from the bottom of your heart? That’S what you should not Tuality community and stuff like being open about belly dancing despite being from Orthodox Community, but my question is: how do you express all of this to someone from a villa in India? How do you tell them about this? We know about all of this and we have access to the internet. We know English language, but how do you tell them does not does not impact what you know at all you. You speak a language which is used across the world. That does not mean that you that you know what’s going on. That’S that’s the first point II point is somebody in a village possibly correct me if I’m wrong but I’ve. I feel that for them to get to the point of this, don’t know if they’d want to get your they might or might not. But we don’t know that so we don’t we don’t. We don’t need to go and teach them is what I feel we just need, let go and just be. We don’t need to be the ones who preached we just we need to do what we can. That’S it. Knowledge is disseminated many languages. I understand that there is a hierarchy in our minds about English, because English is the language of the colonizer, not just the language of the colonizers, the language in which we, the language in which in which most things are made, which we think are high-class. But, let’s not forget the local and Regional languages how to change somebody mindset in the village, I’m not entirely sure. I think I kind of agree with what other tail saying. Maybe it’s not my job to do it and I think at least me as an artist in the citizen. I think my only job first and foremost is depressed myself and to speak to those whose language I speak. Such differences between someone living in Delhi and someone will be living in a village to certain extent, we can only play a small part. There isn’t going to be one magic, one magic message: that’s going to relate to everybody, but in each case it reaches out a little further and that then gets transferred by somebody else. So you know somebody who lives in Delhi but goes back to the village and finds a way to connect back to that. So if each and everything is is impacting a certain a certain, it’s like ripples, Drive, ripples continue and get wider and wider explicit. Giving a shock element giving the audien something that’s unexpected, so anyway experience what approach works better to achieve the purpose of whatever peace you’re making. I don’t think that is anyone approach that I think you was a Mako or performer need to understand what your approach is. What how is it that you communicate best with an audience that need not necessarily talk seriously about serious things? This is something that I try to keep in mind. I don’t always succeed, so I like to I like naughty things. Let’S just leave it at that. I, like I, like that’s, tough, but I think it’s very important to not take things too seriously to find another way to tell the same story. I know so that things are usually from the first I’m going to talk about now. It’S like something within something that made you angry that day, so frustrated and helpless, and from there you build into something which might have a bigger political meaning, but really it. It starts with a personal expressions in this country. Will all conceptions of femininity and masculinity kind of inverted compartments intermingle, with example of your blue angles, the color pink? Similarly, a boy or girl not getting very much, you understand if you’re beautiful, going to Moon, you know and Mendel the beginning mr. world and Universal Stephens College tuition. Is it and everybody who’s been listening in this extreme heat, and I did it again. Please thank you. So much for listening turn up the series weather going to be in Mumbai at st. Xavier’s College.
