"Filmed over three tumultuous years in India, Pakistan, Japan and the United States, after the 1998 nuclear tests on the Indian subcontinent ... [it] documents the contemporary, epic journey of peace activism in the face of religious militarism and war .... [It] examines the militarization of India, it analyzes the human cost that is extracted from its citizens in the name of 'national security' .... [It] slips seamlessly from its analysis of homemade jingoism to focus on how an aggressive United States has become a foreign relations role model. The unofficial U.S. doctrine of 'might makes right' is only too well emulated by aspiring Third World elites"--Container

Rama ke naam In the name of God ( Visual )
in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Though India is a secular state, religious fundamentalism grips much of its population. This film focuses on efforts by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) to destroy a 16th century mosque in Ayodhya supposedly built by Babar, the first Mughal emperor of India. The VHP claim the mosque was built at the birthplace of the Hindu god Ram after Babar razed an existing temple; they are determined to build a new temple to Ram on the same site. This controversial issue, unresolved by successive governments, has led to religious riots costing thousands their lives and culminating in the mosque's destruction by the Hindus in 1992. Examines the motivations that led to the drastic actions of the Hindu militants, as well as the efforts of secular Indians to combat the religious intolerance
Pitra, Putra Aur Dharamyuddha Father, son and holy war ( Visual )
2 editions published in 1994 in Hindi and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the politically polarized world, universal ideals are rare. In India, as in many places, at times the vacuum is filled by religious zealotry. But why? This documentary examines Indian patriarchy, machismo, and the attitudes they generate toward women and minorities in India, as well as the exploitation of ancient history, popular culture, prejudice, and religion by the unscrupulous for political gain. Violence--whether against women or members of other regions and religions--is embraced by men as a vital component of being "a real man." If the origin of violence against "the other" lays in male insecurity, itself a product of this construction of "manhood," where do the men of India go from there? Forward, or back?

Jai Bhim comrade by Anand Patwardhan ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in Hindi and English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In India, members of the Dalit ("Untouchable") caste were systematically discriminated against and oppressed for thousands of years, denied education, and treated as bonded labor. By the 1920's Bhimrao Ambedkar broke the taboo, winning doctorates abroad and fighting for the emancipation of his people. His legend still spreads through poetry and song. This film was shot over 14 years by acclaimed political documentarian Anand Patwardhan, whose work pursues diverse and controversial issues at the crux of Indian social and political life and has been frequently targeted by state censors. Epic in its scope and ambition, the film stands as both a record of recent history of the Dalits and an eloquent testimony to the power of countering superstition and religious bigotry with reason

"Since gaining independence in 1947, India has been a secular state.

Flood Risks, Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Benefits in Mumbai An Initial Assessment of Socio-Economic Consequences of Present and Climate Change Induced Flood Risks and of Possible Adaptation Options ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Managing risks from extreme events will be a crucial component of climate change adaptation. In this study, we demonstrate an approach to assess future risks and quantify the benefits of adaptation options at a city-scale, with application to flood risk in Mumbai. In 2005, Mumbai experienced unprecedented flooding, causing direct economic damages estimated at almost two billion USD and 500 fatalities. Our findings suggest that by the 2080s, in a SRES A2 scenario, an 'upper bound' climate scenario could see the likelihood of a 2005-like event more than double. We estimate that total losses (direct plus indirect) associated with a 1-in-100 year event could triple compared with current situation (to $690 - $1890 million USD), due to climate change alone. Continued rapid urbanisation could further increase the risk level. Moreover, a survey on the consequences of the 2005 floods on the marginalized population reveals the special vulnerability of the poorest, which is not apparent when looking only through a window of quantitative analysis and aggregate figures. For instance, the survey suggests that total losses to the marginalized population from the 2005 floods could lie around $250 million, which represents a limited share of total losses but a large shock for poor households. The analysis also demonstrates that adaptation could significantly reduce future losses; for example, estimates suggest that by improving the drainage system in Mumbai, losses associated with a 1-in-100 year flood event today could be reduced by as much as 70%. We show that assessing the indirect costs of extreme events is an important component of an adaptation assessment, both in ensuring the analysis captures the full economic benefits of adaptation and also identifying options that can help to manage indirect risks of disasters. For example, we show that by extending insurance to 100% penetration, the indirect effects of flooding could be almost halved. As shown by the survey, the marginalized population has little access to financial support in disaster aftermaths, and targeting this population could make the benefits of such measures even larger. While this study explores only the upper-bound climate scenario and is insufficient to design an adaptation strategy, it does demonstrate the value of risk-assessment as an important quantitative tool in developing city-scale adaptation strategies. We conclude with a discussion of sources of uncertainty, and of risk-based tools that could be linked with decision-making approaches to inform adaptation plans that are robust to climate change
