What am i provoking here? By providing a context to the transcript, I am
lying about my desire to calm anxieties?
Sure i can be quoted. But you will need to maintain other facts:
That the said audience watched both The Human Tragedy by Ashok Pandit and
Jashn-e-Azadi by Sanjay Kak.
And they watched it in private, amongst friends, in their home.
One film they downloaded in two parts from You tube
and the other was a preview copy they acquired from a journalist in mumbai.
