Let’s move back to our socialistic moorings, which is the overwhelming, underlying theme of protest movements across India. Look beyond the obvious and the visible – the demand for ‘Lokpal’ by Team Anna and the call for the repatriation of ‘black money’ by Baba Ramdev, for example – and listen deeper into the speeches made by the new-age reformers from several platforms. All of them are making unequivocal noises about an equitable society based on socialist-welfarist ideas.

 

About Intercultural Resources

Intercultural Resources is a forum for research and political intervention on issues related to the impacts and alternatives to destructive development. Our effort draws upon the social, cultural, material and intellectual resources that have been generated in the course of dialogues between people of different cultures on questions of social justice, development and self-rule. We are of the view that dialogue can sustain plurality and open possibilities for recovery of the ground lost on account of inter-cultural alienation, which is manifest in a variety of forms of violence that we encounter everyday at different levels of social life. Intercultural Resources is based in Delhi, India. Email: ihpindia@gmail.com
