The first One State Solution Week was an online event over the blogosphere as well as mailing lists(Sarai) and social networks(Orkut, Facebook) getting people to voice opinions about the resolution of communal disputes and the formation of a tighter coalition between India, Pakistan and Bangladesh that we call the ‘One State Solution’.
The event saw voices of support , exploration and dissent, but served to uncover and unearth the collective histories of communal animosities that we all have gathered and that act as pain-points for all our growth.Bringing together the tight conglomeration of religion and politics that colours most of South Asia’s history of sectarian violence and identity politics, the idea behind these events is to bring about catharsis, resolution and healing.They stem from the belief that the pain of partition and communal violence can only be washed out by a progressive cultural movement that shows us the way forward.
Some of the key values that we seek to nourish in order to engender forms of culture that speak beyond the boundaries of yore such as class, caste and religion are the freedom of information and open frameworks for artistic and cultural collaboration.
We will carry these values forward as we experiment and nurture thought and creativity irrespective of media or the tight travails and foolhardy strictures of high and low art that bind culture today.We move ahead and together and all are welcome, because you can either be against us or you can be with us, or you can be both.
