தப்பாட்டக் கலைஞர் கணேசனுடன் அவரது தோழர்கள்( புகைப்படம்: கிறிஸ்டோபர்)

தமிழர்கள் தமக்கென்று தன்னகத்தே பல கலைகளை வைத்துள்ளனர். அவைகள் காலத்தால் மிகவும் பழமையானவை. மேற்கத்திய நாகரிகத்தின் செல்வாக்கானது தமிழ் கலைகளை சிறிது சிறிதாக பயன்பாட்டிலிருந்து வெளியேறிச் செல்ல வழிவகுக்கின்றது. இவ்வாறு காணப்படும் சூழ்நிலையில் மதுரை மாவட்டம் வாடிப்பட்டி சேர்ந்த தப்பாட்ட கலைஞர் கணேசன் அவர்களுடனான சிறிய உரையாடல் பல உண்மைகளை வெளிக்கொணர்ந்தது.

நாட்டுப்புற கலைகள் ஏன் வழக்கொழிந்து செல்கின்றன? அவை அழியாமல் இருக்க நாம் என்ன செய்ய வேண்டும்? அரசாங்கம் எவ்வாறு இந்த நாட்டுப்புற கலைஞர்களுக்கு ஆதரவு வழங்கவேண்டும்? என்ற பல்வேறுபட்ட கேள்விகளுக்கு அவரின் பதில் என்ன?

தமிழரின் கலைகளைப் பற்றி பார்க்கும் போது எனக்கே வியப்பாக உள்ளது எத்தனை வகையான கலைகள், கூத்துக்கள், ஆட்டங்கள் என பலவற்றை தன்னகத்தே கொண்டு காணப்படுகிறது. இது வெறுமனே ஒரு கூத்தாக அல்லது ஆட்டமாக மட்டுமல்லாது மக்களது வாழ்வோடு கலந்து பல பயன்களை ஏற்படுத்துவதாக காணப்படுகின்றது. எத்தனை வகையான ஆட்டங்கள் எனக்கே வியப்பாக உள்ளது…

I don’t want to depend on somebody for my needs, so I have decided to sell sweets and earn for myself’, said Mr. Paul; one of the visually challenged people in the Saidapet railway station. Humanity teaches us to treat one another equally. But human beings tend to forget every time and focus on our own profit. Fail to listen to others cry, and even not ready to give an opportunity to express their inner storming.

“Becoming a popular person doesn’t make any difference in my life unless I don’t do any good to the society”. I have established this mentality from my childhood.

Whatever I do and become should be for the betterment of the society. My first inspiration as a child was catholic priests who were doing social work in the society. Now I am a first year Digital Journalism student at Loyola College and I want to make use of this opportunity of becoming a journalist for a better purpose. …

Chennai has been an industrial hub for a longer period of time. The Industrial Revolution opened its gate for all kinds of works. The job seekers saw Chennai as a paradise to live. The main motivation for coming is employment and a better salary. The majority of the migrant workers who are in Chennai have come from the Eastern part of India, namely Odisha, Behar, West Bengal, Assam, and other places.

Do these migrants have insurance? What health benefits do they get? How long do workers work? Does Chennai really care about them? These questions remain only as questions. Though…

Violence in the name of religion is taking the streets. The divide between the religious communities is widening by the day. In the last few decades we have seen an increase in violence and the changing patterns of South Asia. In Pakistan the victims of communal violence are primarily Christians and Hindus, lately Ahmadiyas also being prosecuted there. In Bangladesh there have been incidents of violence against Hindus and Buddhists. In India the major victims are Muslims and Christians. Since the 1980 the trend of picking up identity issues like Ram temple, conversions, love jihad, and beef eating among others…

At last India seems to have woken up. Protests across the country, spontaneously led by University students, are becoming a movement. The youth, in particular, seem to have recognized the need to voice their dissent. For almost a decade people seem to have been numbed into silence partly out of fear, partly out of misguided expectations or misplaced hopes in the new regime.

People stood in line during the Demonetization thinking that it was a good economic decision, when the government interfered with rather questionable religious practices of a group, people give in hoping that it would help the concerned…

The only way to prevent ourselves is to be away from the Corona victims and following the safety measurements.
