Mumbai Diary: Thursday theme
The city — sliced, diced and served with a dash of sauce
The story of a revolutionary
Music and music videos served the purpose of getting a message across on various occasions. One such video that will be released tomorrow is that of Frank Brazil, the new song by Ska band The Ska Vengers.
The animated video, created by Kunal Sen and Tisha Deb Pillai, tells the story of Udham Singh, the man who assasinated Michael O’Dwyer in London in 1940.
As the Lieutenant Governor of Punjab, O’Dwyer had approved of the firing that led to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre. Singh was later executed. We love the contemporary touch given to the video that marks the 75th death anniversary of Singh.
