Hey Mumbaikars! Did u know that Adani Power (which supplies 87% of Mumbai’s electricity) is 25% owned by State of Qatar since February? “Atmanirbhar India” 101 while we all pay massively inflated bills. Wait for the same to happen now with “privatized” Indian Railways.

Colonial statuary were created to assert strength, hierarchy, the right to rule and even civilisational superiority. They are often part of new civic spaces that are symbolic of the state’s power and the ruling elite’s control over the built environment.
