Where is democracy, questions ANHAD

    ANHAD on Friday launched their ‘Bole Gujarat’ campaign with release of music video called ‘Where is democracy’. 
    The song is parody of the recent hit Kolaveri Di which satires on the state of democracy in Gujarat. 
    The song exposes myth of Vibrant Gujarat and raises questions about corruption, poverty, status of women and atmosphere of fear prevalent in the state. It also talks about image of one leader being promoted while others have been pushed to a corner. 
    ANHAD’s Arma Ansari has directed the video while Priyank Upadhyay has lent his voice to the words penned by Shabnam Hashmi. Manish Dhakad is the central character of the video. 
    Bole Gujarat is using social media to project voice of the marginalised sections of Gujarat and also of the educated masses, who have failed to express their anguish and unrest.
