Radicalism, Karnan, Sports Quota, and Saffronising the Medicine: Here's what's trending on ScrollStack this week

The New India Foundation – a platform that strives to foster interest in documenting the dynamic and rich landscape of post-Independence India – provides a heart-touching excerpt from Neyaz Farooquee's courageous memoir, "An Ordinary Man's Guide to Radicalism".
Meanwhile, Anisha Saigal writes on how each of Dibakar Banerjee’s works operates on two levels— first, the surface level narrative that advances the plot, and second, the vignettes it presents in the background for each occurrence, each character. "There are a lot of reasons to fixate on Dibakar Banerjee’s artistic sensibilities. You have to appreciate the guts of the man who opted for Arjun Kapoor and Parineeti Chopra as lead cast in his film," she writes.
Vijayendra Mohanty, who writes on contemporary Indian society and culture writes on the saffronising of medicine. "It would have understood that at a time when medicine is essential for the survival of millions, questioning the merit of life-saving medicine by quacks in saffron robes is dangerous to our collective health," he writes.
Meanwhile, Studio 41 brings you the latest in cricketing action from around the world through Sports Quota. Curated specially for the desi fan. If that is your jam, you are in for a treat!
