Crackdown on Dissent: ‘Ruk Mat, Thak Mat, Baith Mat’
Celebrates the voice of the janta and India’s diversity.
(As India sees nationwide protests by farmers and a list of arrests – of journalists and activists – in relation to it, some of them being charged with sedition, the ability to freely voice dissent in the country has come into question. In this context, The Quint is reposting this song which celebrates the voice of the janta and India's diversity. It was first published on 15 August, 2017.)
Ruk mat. Thak mat. Baith mat. Go out there and do what you want to do. What you have to do. What you must do. Do whatever that will quell the storm in your heart. Ruk mat. Thak mat. Baith mat.
