With 2015 at a close, it is time to take a look at a unique year-ender.
A special group of people try to see the year gone by in a humourous and satirical manner. Rahul Ram of Indian Ocean, Sanjay Rajoura, Vikramjeet Singh talk to Roving Editor, Athar Khan about their act Aisi Taisi Democracy (ATD) and also discuss political satire in the India context.
Aisi Taisi Democracy (ATD) is political satire at its best. It is part stand-up comedy and part musical. The intelligent humour in the act has been enjoyed and welcomed by the audience.
India has had a long history of political satire and comedy—'hasya kavita'. Indian satire is creating its space globally. Our stand-up comedians are being accepted and the tolerance levels too seem to have relaxed.
