A unique opportunity to meet and speak with Vivek Agnihotri. Indian film-maker, activist and author Vivek Agnihotri has written a book 'Urban Naxals', narrating his experiences while working on his film Buddha in a Traffic Jam (2014). Touted as one of the most controversial films of India, this movie narrates a story of a professor who advocates his students about the need of a revolution in India and the world at large, also sampeling themes like corruption, naxalism ,campus politics, moral policing and crony capitalism. Urban Naxals, also the title of the book, act to amplify the message of Naxalites who do not believe in the idea of state and serve as recruiters to wage a propaganda war through social and conventional media. It also tries to decipher the link between academia, media and the larger agenda to discredit the idea of India. This gripping story recounts Agnihotri's own grooming in college to be an Urban Naxal and details the plans and modus operandi of the movement. Agnihotri's story is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Buddha in a Traffic Jam, the violent resistance to its screening and an expounds the penentration of left wing extremism into urban India
