Pinned toot


Hi , I'm an illustrator and graphic designer based out of New Delhi. Through editorial illustration, fiction and non-fiction comics I look at intersections of visual design + research with contemporary politics, social and human rights issues.

I also make political comics compiled under on most social media platforms. Links where they're supposed to be if you're interested :)

Suggestions for podcasts/reading on Marxist Theory? I already listen to Philosophise This. Wondering if there's anything good *specifically* on Marxism, The Frankfurt School?

Do read this story from democratic India, where 10,000 people in Jharkhand are charged with sedition for asking to either be given their constitutional rights, or be corrected on what their rights are. That's right, 10,000 people. That's right, sedition. scroll.in/article/944116/10000

New-style dictators prefer the ankle bracelet to the Gulag.

It's bad enough that brands are capitalising on the air pollution with ads for masks but I'm really perturbed by aesthetics being the selling point. I don't want to look at someone in a mask and go wow...fashion, I want to be reminded that this is an emergency nd it's not normal.

Indian politics, twitter 

Thinking of దేశ చరిత్రలు ('Desa Charitralu'/ History of Nations) from Mahaprasthanam by telugu Marxist poet, Srirangam Srinivas Rao today in light of the Ayodhya verdict and everything that's been going down steadily over the past five years. This is a sharp critic of how feudalistic societies are a function of oppressive regimes and a comment on national pride. Translation via @theteluguarchive on Instagram (full poem with translation in their highlights if you're interested).

Overheard: I am wearing saffron on Bobde's Manusmriti oathtaking ceremony ya. What about you?

Also, let it not be forgotten that INC played a crucial role in escalating the Babri issue.
