On Wednesday, the entire nation saw a shameful incident of a farmer publicly hanging himself from a tree in front of almost 5000 people. The famer identified as Gajendra Singh Rajput committed suicide at Jantar Mantar in the Aam Aadmi Party’s kisan rally. His suicide letter revealed that he came from Dausa district of Rajasthan and the recent hailstorms had destroyed his entire crops.

This tragic incident happened just a few steps away from Parliament, which is in session. There were multiple layers of policemen deployed on duty and neither of them came forward to save the poor farmer, alleged an AAP volunteer who said that he climbed the tree after the farmer to try and save him.

The volunteer told a news channel that, “By the time I reached him, it was too late. But I supported him hoping that we could do something and with my other hand I signaled to the policeman below for help. They did nothing just stood around and laughed.”

Also, the tree was only 40 steps away from the stage where Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal along with his party leaders was seated. AAP leader Sanjay Singh too spoke from the stage asking the police to stop Gajendra.

Kejriwal announced from the stage, after Gajendra was rushed to RML hospital, that “I feel sad that before our eyes he climbed the tree. I kept telling the police to save him. The police are not in our control, but at least they are under god’s control.”

However, after the death of the farmer, a magisterial inquiry has been ordered. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has also solicited the Delhi police to give a report on the series of events and police preparedness at AAP’s rally.

Why You Should Watch Political Documentary Series Transparency: Pardarshita?

Transparency is not an experiment, rather it is a tale of the experience and anguish of a common man, who is in search of accountability

In reality, documentaries are not merely the projection of a story, it is more a story of a life, it’s a story of survival, it’s a story of a time in which people live, it’s a story of success and failure.

In India, the entertainment industry has lagged in providing realistic content which defines the actual aesthetic of a documentary, exclusively in political thrillers. It is a big deal in itself to inculcate real-life accounts and actual scenarios pertaining to an event that has brought a revolution, and undoubtedly, you can see that in Transparency: Pardarshita.

Transparency Webseries is a waypost in the world of political Thrillers in India which exclusively highlights the off-stage candours associated with the famous India Against Corruption Movement (popularly known as the Anna Andolan) and the evolution of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) whose genesis pertains to the famous movement.

Transparency is not an experiment, rather it is a tale of the experience and anguish of a common man, who is in search of accountability. This 6-episode documentary unravels how the AAP demolished its fundamental principles based on financial transparency, decentralisation of power and internal vigilance upon which it laid its foundation just for the sake of getting in power.

After coming to power, AAP not only dismantled its core principles but abandoned its idealism and slaughtered the trust of thousands of people who dreamt of a corruption-free India. AAP also collected public funds to contest elections but gradually when it uprooted~ it removed its donors’ list from the website. Thus, Pardarshita at the same time yearns for clean political funding and the failure of the new system.

It may be easy for you to connect your life with an ordinary film but here it is much easier for you to connect with Transparency as you may better understand the sentiments of a “common man” who inevitably dreams to eradicate corruption from the system.

Documentary films are the only place where people can speak for themselves, and Transparency is one such pedestal.

It urges people to look at themselves, to look at what has been done wrong and through that really count for the future to come.. and precisely, this is what is the vision of the director, Dr. Munish Raizada, who has himself been part of this mass movement and the Aam Aadmi Party.

One must congratulate Munish Raizada for making Transparency: Pardarshita. Twitter

By Suyog Zore

First of all, one must congratulate Munish Raizada for making Transparency: Pardarshita. Making a documentary film, let alone a six-part documentary series, on politics in India is not an easy task.

Raizada has made a documentary series on one of the biggest uprisings India has seen after the freedom movement and the Emergency, the Jan Lokpal andolan, also known as the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement. He tries to find answers to how the uprising was planned, how it gave rise to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), and how the party that came to power in the national capital territory of Delhi with the promise of transparency slowly went off track.

Transparency is a six-part documentary series written, directed and produced by Munish Raizada, who was himself a member of AAP at one time. In the documentary, he traces AAP’s journey from its inception to now. In this process, he meets old colleagues of party founder and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal as well as others who joined and then left the party.

The first episode, titled Dream Game, deals with how the Anna Hazare movement was organized by people like Kumar Vishwas, Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan and some other activists. The episode is very informative and tells us how no movement takes place on the spur of the moment. It takes a lot of time, dedicated people and a lot of effort to create a successful movement like Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal Andolan.

The third episode focuses on how the IAC came to be formed and what it did. Both these episodes focus on how Arvind Kejriwal used the popularity of the movement as a launch pad for his own political career. Raizada interviews Kejriwal’s former friends and activists like Shazia Ilmi, Kapil Mishra and Kiran Bedi who testify that Kejriwal harboured political ambition from the start. It should be noted, however, that all of these former friends are now part of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, the foremost rival of AAP in Delhi.

Raizada uses real footage from the Jan Lokpal movement and from AAP’s formation and victory in the Delhi assembly election of 2015. He juxtaposes visuals of the euphoria among Delhi’s citizens when AAP came to power for the first time with the current situation and tries to find out where things went wrong.

The most important episode of this documentary is number 4, which is titled The Mask. The episode is split into two parts, 4A and 4B. In this two-part episode, Raizada meets many long-standing associates of Kejriwal and tries to dissect his personality. The documentary claims that Kejriwal, who has a proven track record as an activist in the public domain, has a different personality for insiders of the Anna agitation and the Aam Aadmi Party.

Raizada also tries to find answers to many questions like why did AAP stop showing its list of donors on its website and why the party never implemented an internal Lokpal. However, Raizada expects the viewer to be familiar with the Indian political scenario and how things were in those days and that’s why the episode may not interest those who have not kept themselves up-to-date with politics in India. But then, someone who isn’t familiar with Indian politics may not invest six hours of his life in this documentary either.

The length of the series is the biggest problem with this documentary. Almost six hours long, it is stuffed with too much information to process. By the time you reach the final episode, you are likely to have forgotten some important information from earlier episodes. Maybe if Raizada had focused his effort more sharply on the issue of transparency in AAP and dug out more information, it might have made greater impact.

Another problem is Raizada’s fixation with dramatization. As he mentioned in an interview with Cinestaan.com, he had initially planned a feature film on the subject but later dropped the idea. Perhaps he could not completely let go of the thought, however, because he uses elements from the typical commercial template, like a melodramatic background score, to hammer his message home. All it does is dilute the authenticity of the documentary.

Despite these flaws, Transparency: Pardarshita is a brave and praiseworthy effort.

 In the 6 episodes, the story revolves around chase for political funds (Chanda). The web series is not only a commentary on the genesis of India Against Corruption movement and subsequent political developments, it is also a fascinating tale of hype and hoopla, goals and misses, power struggle and drama- all intertwined in the chase for Chanda! All in 5 1/2 hours of engaging content!

Alternative politics was the reason, because of which the AAP was formed. The plot of the story thus, revolves around tracing those promises of clean politics and transparent political funding.

Raizada further enumerated the three founding principles of AAP, viz. financial transparency, internal vigilance and decentralisation of power and told that the series will remove each and every layer that led to the dismantling of all the three principles of AAP by the power centres of AAP.
