[Watch] Kalki Koechlin’s Powerful Poem On Morally Numb Juicy Headlines Of Media
Kalki Koechlin often goes beyond reel Bollywood films and makes it close to real life people with her writings and performances, like she amazed us with her story and acting in “That Girl in Yellow Boots”, her acting as a patient of cerebral palsy in “Margarita with a straw” and her powerful video on rape called ‘Rape – It’s Your Fault’?
She has come up with yet another powerful self-written poem titled ‘The Printing Machine’ ,a rhythmic and scathing satire against daily broadsheets, magazines, social media and textbooks.
This powerful piece with its rising crescendo reveals the hollow and robotic production and consumption of news by a generation blinded by its vulgar hunger for juicy headlines. With women’s empowerment at the core, she alludes to events that shook the nation, and also to those that were equally gruesome but got replaced by beauty advertisements and our apathy.
