Just Jo | Just being myself Just JoJust being myself About Audio India News Recording Tips Songs of Jo The case for Uniform Civil Code July 5, 2016 No comments Article Tweet I think the case for a uniform civil code is valid. The only thing that worries me about it is that it is now put forth by BJP, whose leaders and their parent organizations have majoritarian and sectarian agenda to their politics. However, that is no reason to oppose it vehemently. USC with regards to core practices of societal life like marriage and inheritance etc would be beneficial to people, especially to women and those who want less interference of clergy and community leaders in their lives. But it cannot happen overnight because it involves questioning so many religious, tribal and community practices across different religions. Many of the sanghis and minorities seem to think that it affects certain practices of minority religions alone. But these practices are prevalent among many tribes, sects and communities among the majority religion as well. Which could be why the RSS’s Golwalker was one of the early opponents of USC. Which leads to the question why BJP, the Golwalkerish political offshoot, is proposing it now and that is the question concerning a large section of the minority as well. But that is also the reason why minorities should actively engage in discussions about USC and take it forward to ensure that it doesn’t tread on the BJP/Sangh politics. This should be seen as an opportunity, if the minority concern is not to protect their dogmatic religious interests but the Sanghi agenda. I support the uniform civil code unless convinced otherwise. And I think the process of implementing it should involve taking cues from similar laws in other, progressive countries and also gain the faith of community/political leadership and alleviate the doubts of common man before passing it as law. But it shouldn’t take forever to do that. The Revenant February 28, 2016 No comments Article “The Revenant” takes us back to the ‘olden’ days of Hollywood film making and tells us that movies can still be made outside the green screen studios. And that definitely is a plus, for a generation of computer-savvy movie goers aren’t much thrilled or convinced of stories told by the ‘gruesome’ visual effects these days. Lubezki’s camera would captivate you so much because it reminds you of the wide angles or close-ups that you have seen in movies about the wild west or native Americans (I also hear that he has used the natural lights, so that makes the cinematography here a lot interesting). Some of the shots are so Terrence Malick-ish and I’m talking about Malick movies before Lubezki started associating with him. At times, the movie has it loose on the conviction part – particularly on the scene where Glass could not move a finger when his son was being killed yet manages to drag himself out of his grave thereafter. The film in spirit too is a mixture of ‘Dances with Wolves’ meets ‘The Last of the Mohicans’ in a Terrence Malick movie scripted by Quentin Tarantino. But that is not to discourage you from watching the movie. In fact, it is a must-watch and you should go to a theater where the widest screen and good sound are available to watch this movie (people of Trivandrum, do not miss this in Audi 1 of Ariesplex Cinemas). Because even with the advanced visual and sound technologies available these days, movies of this genre and visual quality are seldom made. DiCaprio’s performance does not come close to what he did with Wolf of Wall Street but is sure to gain the Academy members’ attention (who doesn’t like tragedy on-screen?). And I’m sure Lubezki would walk away with a golden man in his hand. I read that the crew had to go through a lot of pain while shooting and you can see that on screen. Mongolian Throat Singing February 21, 2016 No comments Article I was unaware of what is called Mongolian throat singing until I chanced upon it through a friend’s Facebook post. I didn’t really think the style was nice but was captivated by the instruments used, particularly a two-string instrument that is played like the Chinese violin. Then a friend gave me some links to check out and I saw this video of a Mongolian throat singing band called Huun-Huur-Tu and I was blown away! You could hear a harmony, about two layers of vocals at work minimum at the same time, when they do this throat-singing. And that is amazing. Check out the band here: Blood on our dance floor January 21, 2016 No comments Article Tweet Remember how Rajiv Goswami, the student who lit himself in protest of Mandal report, had moved India across the nation? There was no social media. We weren’t living in an informed age like this. But still it moved the country. A young man burning himself was more than enough to move our senses back then even if some people didn’t know what Mandal meant. Rohit Vemula was a passionate young man too. He didn’t kill himself on the road, but silently in a hostel room. His last words were that of a man who has seen it through, that he went about writing ‘do not trouble my friends or enemies on this’. It is unlikely that Vemula will move India like Goswami did. Because beyond the protests and our keyboard activism, many of us who stand at the top of the caste ladder, still are not sure of the larger topic – caste and the reservation – though Vemulas of our time validates it. We are all Dathathreyas. We are all manu vaadis in that regard. And no Facebook/blog posts can take that guilt back, including this one. Ee Mizhikalil from Lukka Chuppi (cover) January 1, 2016 No comments Article Here is a song after ages. It has been a few years now since I have recorded anything and then I heard this song from the Malayalam movie “Lukka Chuppi” and it blew me away. This one was recorded the old way, using the headset and Reaper – a software that I had purchased but never put to good use. Do let me know what you think. Thanks. Credits: Song: Ee Mizhikalil Lyrics: Rafeeq Ahamed Music: Bijibal Maniyil Original singer: Vivekanandan Cover by myself Malayalam Film Songs 2015 January 1, 2016 No comments Article Advise to Vidyasagar – stop imitating Ilaiyaraja even if it is on Sathyan Anthikkad’s request (reference to movie “Ennum Eppozhum”). We look forward to your signature music. Not just some skeleton of another music director. 2015 has seen many ‘casual’ songs being hit – like ‘Enne thallendammaava”, or “Kaikottum kandittilla” (both from Oru Vadakkan Selfie), and “Kaalam kettu poy”, or “Scene Contra” or many other such songs from the film “Premam”. For one thing, Rajesh Murugesan and Shaan Rahmaan – these won’t go past another set of such casual songs from yet another movie. You got to remember that. “Malare” however stayed and you got to thank Sai Pallavi for the song to have stayed, not so much for the quality of musical chords (why did you have to put that heavy set of strings to overshadow the vocals?!). If that is how you want to be remembered, okay, fine. “ithu puthen lokam” from ‘Premam’ however was nice, both lyrically and music wise. “I Remember You”, the English number from the movie “Nee-Na” was a class apart. Good job on the male version, Nikhil Menon. Also on the track “Where Gravity Fails”. You have brought back the good old soft rock back to filmy music. Also your song “Then Nila” sung by Sachin Warrier was so nice to hear. Good job on the track of “Nee-Na”. Bijibal has kept it nicely with the tracks “Ee Mizikalil” from Lukka Chuppi (love those guitar riffs) and “Ente Janalarikil” from Sudhi Vaathmeekam. And Gopi Sunder has put the curtain to 2015 with the song “Puthu mazhayaay” from Charlie. That sums up the otherwise mediocre musical year of 2015. A lesson on empathy November 6, 2015 No comments Article “I need a table lamp”, said Ryan. I asked him why he would need a table lamp. “To study better”, he said. That must have come from some scene in a movie or an advertisement, I suppose. You know, the kids with a study table filled with books, a table lamp, a coffee mug and all that. I told him that he didn’t need one now and the light present was enough. So he put his cuteness mode on with a begging face and I was beginning to go defenseless. Then I decided to put my good-father hat on: “You know, in my childhood, there was no electricity in the house till the quarterly exams of 10th standard. I studied under the light of a kerosene lamp at night”. As I spoke, I realized that I haven’t showed him a kerosene lamp yet. “In this house?”, he asked, glancing at the switch boards. “No, in the house that was in place. Where I and your uncles and aunties grew up”. “Where was grandpa then? Was he at work?”, he asked. I didn’t quite get that part. What did that have to do with electricity? “Yes, he was”, I said. Ryan went silent for a moment and then asked me with an empathizing face: “so you couldn’t fix the electricity because grandpa was at work?”. So basically, he thought that it was a temporary electricity outage that couldn’t be fixed because my father was at work. This short conversation with my son made me realize that people can empathize with stories, but they would never completely understand how it is like, unless they experience it themselves. And that is not a ‘problem’ but a fact. And that is not just about one generation. Every generation that is gone, present and to come would be the same in this case. But the least we could do is to empathize. A dog here, a dog there October 25, 2015 No comments Article No, I don’t think that the weight of caste is on BJP alone. It is on every one of us here in India – regardless of parties, religions, gender or region. It is on us who secretly take pride when we have to mention our caste, while we try our best to make it sound like it doesn’t matter to us. It is on us, when we laugh at those ‘harmless caste jokes’ when we have our fellow upper-caste friends around, yet so proud how modern and caste-less we are. So, no, the news of those two little ones being burnt in a casteist attack doesn’t surprise me. That is everyday India for you. Though it breaks my heart to see those two small bundles of white cloth; ironically, we call children the bundle of joy, don’t we? But what makes me so helplessly angry is the faux pas (that’s how Firstpost calls it so casually) made by V K Singh, country’s minister of state, about the killing that compares the incident to stoning a dog. To think that this man was once the army chief of the country makes me shudder. And as usual, the prime minister who used to accuse his predecessor for being silent on issues is still busy shuttling between international terminals without a word. Hindutva and Jains October 20, 2015 No comments Article No, it’s not going to stop with beef or meat in general. Eggs are next. Madhya Pradesh has already begun the silent ‘revolution’ when it’s chief minister turned down the proposal to include eggs in the midday meals at the anganwadis for malnourished children in the tribal areas. Another thing that makes the news interesting is the mention of Jain community in this news. The NPR article states that the community is powerful in the state and has ‘previously thwarted efforts to introduce eggs in daycare centres and schools’. That is even more interesting when you read with it the four-day meat ban (not to confuse with the ‘beef’ ban) in Mumbai for a Jain festival. So why is it that we do not have much observations about the Jain community’s influence in sustaining and contributing to the Hindutva ideology? Read: Egg War: Why India’s Vegetarian Elite Are Accused Of Keeping Kids Hungry Facebook’s Live Video September 18, 2015 No comments Article The only thing that excites me about Mark Zuckerberg’s live video is the anticipation that Facebook’s live video steaming feature would soon be available to all of us (Tech Crunch says that it is available now, but only to celebrities). And to those who go gaga about the open floor plan that Zuckerberg is boasting about, with his big talk about collaboration and innovation, (apparently Rakuten CEO also boasts the same just about the same day, about his new HQ called Crimson House in Tokyo), you just need to google ‘open office spaces’ and read an article that appears on Fortune by a clinical psychologist. As for me, even an image of it just freaks me out. That Zuckerberg has his own desk among the rest doesn’t make me go ‘wow’. He is the boss, and it doesn’t really matter if he works from a walled office or on the hallway when everything is to his/company’s advantage. So please, spare the rest of us your fanfare.
