Side Upper

By Kunj Sanghvi

Side Upper is a journey through the various Indias that exist within our idea of India. Not all these Indias find a voice in our mainstream discourse today as we try and homogenise that which cannot be homogenised. From a prostitute in Varanasi influencing the biggest political upheaval UP has seen in many years, to a freshly minted MBA setting out to solve the Northeast’s racial problem. From a documentary filmmaker stumbling upon the truth behind the Telangana movement to a middle-aged businessman fleecing Mr Modi at the crowning glory of his capitalist might—the Vibrant Gujarat Summit—the stories from across the country give us a glimpse of ourselves and our many identities. Side Upper is both, an ode to our country and a mirror of who we are today.
