Sheetal Sathe- Kabir Kala Manch sings for Mothers of India (English Subtitles)

Standard

 

Sheetal Sathe is the Backbone  of the Kabir Kala Manch, a spirited  musical troupe which emerged in 2002 after the Gujarat Riots.This leftist cultural group, with students and professionals as its members, drew its  inspiration from Kabir’s poetry, and conveys its social message—of denouncing injustice and oppression—through public performances. Sheetal married outside her caste against  her  family wishes , but convinced her mother. The state doesn’t like  their music. Maharashtra’s Anti-Terrorism Squad is after  all memebrs of Kabir Kala Manch , and  they are underground  because they have been accused of being in contact with Maoists. Her songs are about   feminism, casteism, equality and unbridled capitalism. Two members are behind bars Deepak Dengle and Sidharth Bhonsale .

This song is dedicated to all Mothers of India, penned and sung by Shettal Sathe, this clip has been taken from Anand Patwardhan‘s

Jai Bhim Comrade

  9. अन्याय सहन करने वाला
    अन्यायी से भी पापी है !
    न्यायार्थ दंड भाई को दो,
    यह कर्मज्ञान है गीता का
    अन्यायी बन कर जीने से, कुल कीर्ति नष्ट हो जाती है !
    केशव की बातें बिसरा कर, क्यों लोग मनाते दीवाली ?

    वह दिन दिखलाओ महाशक्ति
    जिसमें कोई न , प्रपंच रहे !
    धार्मिक पाखंड समाप्त करो
    वास्तविक साधू सन्यासी हों
    जाति वन्धन को काट मूल से,मुक्ति दिलाओ नरकों से
    अपराध बोध लेकर मन में, क्यों लोग मानते दीवाली ?
