Screening of Film
"IN MEMORY OF FRIENDS"
It documents the violence and terror in Punjab, India – a land torn apart by religious fundamentalists and a repressive government. After examining the political turmoil of the late 1970′s and the rise of Sikh fundamentalism, the film focuses on the legacy of Bhagat Singh, a young socialist executed by the British in 1931 at the age of 23. Singh has since become a legend. Today the State eulogizes him as a nationalist while Sikh separatists portray him as a Sikh militant. In fact, Singh was neither. Just prior to his death he wrote a book which he entitled ‘Why I Am An Atheist.’ Bhagat Singhs idea of Secularism and Socialism are still very much relevant and worth understanding
WITH GROWING HINDU AND MUSLIM FUNDAMENTALISM ACROSS INDIA, THE IMPORTANCE OF SUCH A POLITICAL, IDEOLOGICAL, INTELLECTUAL AND HUMAN DOCUMENT AS THAT PRODUCED BY ANAND PATWARDHAN IS IMMENSE.
The Screening will be followed by a Discussion in which all the viewers are welcome to participate.
