We live in a time when Left–Dalit unity is being talked about, sometimes in earnest and sometimes out of the expediency of keeping the Loony Right at bay. The parliamentary Left with its eroding base has been spurred to discover and even quote Ambedkar in the year of his 125th birth anniversary, especially in the wake of Rohith Vemula’s murder and the developments in JNU. At such a juncture, Navayana is happy to announce that Anand Patwardhan’s acclaimed documentary feature, Jai Bhim Comrade, that is an important landmark in the Left–Dalit, and even the Dalit–Non-Dalit, dialogue, is now available on our website—with both Hindi (Rs 200) and English (Rs 500) subtitles. Hurry, few copies left.
Please note these copies are only for individual and personal use; for screenings and institutional orders contact firstname.lastname@example.org
‘Anand Patwardhan has given us landmark documentaries in the past … Jai Bhim Comrade makes a contribution that is surely worth trillions of words’—Anand Teltumbde, author of The Persistence of Caste
‘Jai Bhim Comrade was screened at Ramabai Nagar on the eve of the nation’s 63rd year as a Republic. For three and a half hours, over fifteen hundred people saw the film on a makeshift screen, many standing through its entire duration’ — Javed Iqbal
