Happy 65th Birthday, India!

Here are some FJP links for the day. See here for our interview segments with Micha X. Peled, director of Bitter Seeds, an important, moving documentary about the crisis faced by India’s farmers. Relevant, considering how integral India’s farmer’s are to the country’s economy and identity, which Prime Minister Manmohan Singh acknowledges in his Independence Day Speech. For a great source on what’s going on with media in India, read The Hoot. For free speech issues in India specifically, see The Free Speech Hub.

Bonus: One of our favorite posts on India from the FJP archives about the last handwritten newspaper still in print. 

Images: How India ushered in its first Independence Day from First Post. Reblogged from fuckyeahsouthasia.
