Ave known him well last two years having met him several times in person He has made ad films and movies he is a social media celebrity and he has written a book now Across all these pursuits a common theme is that Vivek is an xcellent raconteur When you talk to Vivek time fliesReading Urban Naxals is xactly like talking to Vivek face to face It is as if he is speaking to you in flesh and blood and is passionately xplaining his xperience and his point of view on a movie which is clearly very close to his heart Urban Naxals the
book is verything that Vivek is in person straightforward direct well is Curators of the Buddha everything that Vivek is in person straightforward direct well andxpansiveAlthough Vivek has talked about his book as recounting of how he made Buddha In A Traffic Jam the book is actually much than that Urban Naxals actually covers five key Another Way Home: The Tangled Roots of Race in One Chicago Family elements nicely interwoven in a gripping readThere s of course the making of the Buddha In A Traffic Jam on a shoestring budget at a time which was professionally tough for Vivek The pains that he had to go through to make a politically charged movie going against the grain of accepted talking heads wisdom comes through very clearly and openly The bookxplains the hardships Vivek faced not just to fund the movie but also to actually shoot it He has also Cezanne a Study of His Development explained the story behindach pisode in the movie which comes across as very thoughtfulVivek s own life story and personal beliefs on a range of subjects uite well knit in the story line
#That He Has Had Personal #he has had personal at the fringes of the Naxal movement shows abundantly in the book As Vivek s Twitter followers know he has strong opinions on a variety of sociopolitical topics His views on a range of subjects from life s philosophy to where India is headed as a country show up prominently and honestly through the book He has not been afraid to name people who he likes dislikes and abhorsBut this book is uite important on two other countsThere is a great archival value of this book to understand the underbelly of the Naxal movement Vivek has clearly put in reams of research on the subject of how Naxal movement has spread its wings across the country His movie and book aside he can rightfully lay a claim to be one of the foremost subject matter xperts on this topic The book portrays how a seemingly rural uprising against localized ills has actually become a complex top down national network of interwoven anti government and anti India ideas At the heart of this complex web of hatred lies the real desire to Democratic Art: The New Deal's Influence on American Culture establish an armed militia dictatorship in the name of saving the marginalized and the downtrodden Vivek s book is uite helpful for anyone not familiar with the subject to understand the financial and the control dynamic of the Naxal movementVivek alsoxplains through his personal Obsession: An Erotic Tale experience how Bollywood is basically a big cliue of self serving interests and bloatedgos Urban Naxals describes the conomics of movie making and how strong patronage networks can sabotage or derail any project at their whims and fancies The sad part of this view of Bollywood is that people who market themselves as the champions of new unsupported and variegated voices are almost always at the forefront of shutting or ignoring these voices in direct contrast to their carefully contrasted public personas Although we have always known that all that glitters is not gold Urban Naxals reminds us that all that glitters is not worthy of undying unconditional love and adulationThe fifth and the last aspect of the book deals with the troubles Vivek had to go through to release his movie The movie directly and brutally confronts the popular Bollywood idea of government being the prime oppressor of villagers and adivasis and Naxals being their saviours This truth was too much for his financiers and potential distributors to digest ither due to ideological reasons or due to their inability to upset their business networksVivek thus adopted a uniue social media led marketing approach to take the movie to this audience He toured dozens of prominent universities to Convents and the Body Politic in Late Renaissance Venice engage students and to warn them of thenemy within the Naxal recruitment agents the.
