Ep. 03: Political Violence & Riots

Author: IVM Podcasts

Does promoting violence give political parties in India electoral gains? Steven Wilkinsons book Votes and Violence: Electoral Competition and Ethnic Riots in India seems to suggest so, looking at electoral data. While Wilkinson looks primarily at ethnic riots, political violence is expressed in other methods as well, for the same ends of polarization but at a lesser cost. In this episode, Sarayu and Alok unpack how political violence works in India and why the absence of large scale communal riots does not necessarily indicate social harmony.

The ladies want him and the men want to be him. But Mirza only has eyes for his love, Zeenat, from whom he often seeks counsel. But even this man of mystery and strength has a past that continues to haunt him. As he moves from case to case, he gets closer to confronting his own demons and finding answers for himself. Blessed with support from the Kotwal and his son, Shyam, Mirza cracks down on the criminals through his powers of reasoning and observation, delivering justice to Daribas citizens, only on Dariba Diaries
