Looking for ‘Reason’ in Modi’s India

Shot across the country between 2013 and 2018, Vivek is a work of great ambition, really a report on Modi’s first term in power.

But Patwardhan also spends time in the pockets of secular resistance that have emerged, profiling many activists (including the four murdered), journalists, students, and politicians. These are the two poles of the series, the villains and heroes. Their struggles and clashes are the highlights of an unfolding battle between faith and reason whose outcome Patwardhan believes will shape the future of Indian democracy.
