Tthe database contain items as varied in type from newspaper reports, film clips and scholarly journal articles, in subject from sociology to anthropology touching onto film studies and temporally from 1930's onto the 2000's. Debates into homogenization as a nationalist paradigm, constitutional rights of the individual, position of women in the Hindu society, et al are tagged and browsing by the tags allows a journey through the material which might be removed from actual linear tracking of the resources.


What this database aims to do is provide directions for a series of subsequent researches, which in turn add up as a resource for the database. This is by no means a completed endeavour and ideally grows with usage and contributions.
