कलाकार- कविता Playing with the Placards

Editorial of The Indian Express  April 26, 2017

It is one of actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s shortest, simplest and strongest performances. Appearing in a video just over one minute in length, the actor holds up a series of placards; these read, in succession: “I got a DNA test done. The result showed I was 16.66 per cent Hindu, 16.66 per cent Muslim…”, covering Sikhism, Christianity, Buddhism and world religions too. With each placard, Siddiqui wears stereotypical “markers” — a Hindu caste daub, a Muslim sherwani-topi, a Sikh turban, Buddhist robes. At the end, a placard concludes: “When I discovered my soul, I found that I am a 100 per cent artist”. Saying no lines, Nawazuddin’s video says a lot, for it speaks against power at several levels.

बिना बोले,

 सब कुछ,

बोलना भी एक कला है।

हम झगङ रहे हैं,

जात-धर्म, रंग , देश , सीमा……..

जैसी बातों के लिये।

क्यों एक अच्छे इंसान के रुप,

में जी नहीं सकते  हम ?

I am PhD. in Psychology, a PGDM in HR, hold a certificate in Child Guidance and Counsel ling and a writer, not necessarily in that order. My work experience includes teaching MBA students in Usha Martin and Amity Colleges in Patna and teaching Psychology in various college of Patna to B.A. and M.A. students and to law students in Swami Vivekanand law College in Lucknow. I've also taught primary school students in DPS, Dhanbad. I got married at the age of 19, in my first year of BA Psychology Hons. I finished my studies and developed my interest in women and children studies in India. My thesis is about the urban, educated Indian women. I have written Hindi articles for Hindustan, Dhanbad and the MA Psychology study course for Nalanda Open University in Patna. My interest in writing is something that happened subconsciously. But lately, after having written deep, psychological and spiritual articles and having produced books for Post Graduate Psychology students, I realized how much I love writing for children. I find it refreshing and heartening to write about their innocence, faith, fears and fearlessness. My two daughters have grown on a staple diet of magic and fairy tales and I must confess that I have enjoyed their childhood perhaps more than they did themselves. I wish to keep writing for these little people who are the bright future of our country, our civilization and our world.
