As Author:

Kota Neelima is a political author and has been a journalist for over 20 years in New Delhi. She holds a Master’s Degree in International Relations from the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi, and was Senior Research Fellow, South Asia Studies at The Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Johns Hopkins University, Washington DC. She is also a former Political Editor for The Sunday Guardian newspaper and writes on politics, perception, farmer suicides, and issues concerning the rural poor in India. She is the author of four books of fiction that are based on her experience as a journalist as well as a researcher. Each book questions the accepted notions of politics and society, and seeks to demarcate the democratic deficit at the root of poverty and hopelessness in India. Her third novel, Shoes of the Dead (2013, Rupa), has been one of the popular political books in India. This work examined, on the one hand, the farm crisis in a hypothetical village and the circumstances that led a farmer to commit suicide, and, on the other, the workings of dynastic politics and the cost politicians paid to survive in Delhi‟s power circles.

As Artist:

Kota Neelima has studied painting techniques at the Arpana Caur‟s Academy of Fine Arts and Literature, New Delhi. Her work for over a decade had deconstructed contemporary reality through spirituality, presented in five solo exhibitions in Delhi. Her fourth solo show, First Cause (2012), was based on the Upanishadic exploration of the cause of all Creation, the cause of all causes. Three works from this series can be seen on display at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi. Neelima‟s paintings are impressionist-abstract and the medium is oil on canvas. She follows an elaborate process of making the works, which begins with extensive research of texts, followed by charcoal drawings on paper before, finally converting them to oil paintings. The symbols used in the paintings are trees, sky, the moon and birds, which undergo multi-faceted and complex redefinition. The accessible symbols, each immersed in one or the other aspect of the concept, assist in elaborate exploration of each painting. Besides the solo exhibitions, her paintings have been featured in art shows in India and abroad. Her work is also a part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Sacred Art, Belgium.

HashtagAdda’s Events

In today‟s times, the public sphere has shifted to social media where it gave a chance for many people to target anybody for their basic right of speech and free will. People are quick to term someone‟s comment as anti-state or pro state. This makes tougher to put your point without looking biased. StudioAdda challenges this convention and believes in the true defense of right to speak. Every month an event, HashtagAdda is organized by the StudioAdda team on specific topics. The event consists of people from different professional backgrounds and students and seeks to create a public sphere marked by its deliberative independence. Till date, we have conducted 11 HashtagAdda events. Stated below are some of the topics that we have covered:

Aam Aadmi Party: End of New Politics?

The culmination of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was based on a wide-spread and popular anti-corruption movement headed by Mr. Anna Hazare. At the heart of this „revolution‟ was a promise of change, a vision of a better and more responsive democracy in India. The voter, mostly middle-class, believed in AAP because it represented the „new politics‟ of India, the kind of alternative politics in which the commoners could participate and bring about the change s/he desired. The 11 th HashtagAdda debated whether this is the end of the new politics which was ushered in by AAP.

StateVsStonepelters: Who is winning in Kashmir?

Stone-pelting, as a way of protest in Kashmir, has brought the limelight back to the problems of the youth of this northern state of India and also put in sharp focus the lack of strategy for the development of the young men and women of Indian hinterland. The 10th HashtagAdda debated on the topic to assess the cost of conflict in Kashmir and what is the best way ahead to improve the current situation?

TripleTalaq: Are men and women equal?

The concept of equality is the fundamental premise of any democracy. The principle of gender equality
ensures that men and women have equal rights and opportunities, with no discrimination based on gender. The issue of Triple Talaq is bringing traditional laws and modern concept of equality into conflict. Thus, the question arises whether this practice is serving equal rights to both men and women. At what point does one allow tradition to dominate gender equality?

Election2017: Is the voter angry or happy?

Elections are the process by which citizens of a state get the opportunity to exercise their fundamental right to participate in decision-making. Not only do elections signify the general will of the public but also their political outlook. At the same time, elections pave way for forthcoming policies of the country. Considering these developments, how did the state elections‟ verdict of 2017 impact almost 0.3 billion people?

MoralPolicing: Do we need it?

Moral policing has been a phenomenon in mostly developing societies. Countries with a rich and varied cultural heritage and civilization reference points are prone to different and often conflicting interpretations of mores and customs. India has always allowed co-existence of diverse opinions and practices. With over a billion mobile subscribers and 462 million internet users, India‟s 65% population below 35 years of age, has increasing access to new ideas and global trends, whether in fashion or personal choices.
