"True modernism is freedom of mind, not slavery of taste. It is independence of thought and action, not tutelage under European schoolmasters." N Rabindranath Tagore Modernity was adopted by the society based on facts, science, tools, and technologies. We have progressed by making the planet more urban and industrialized. The world was more reliant on religion before the transition to modernity, but now it's all about science. Humans, for the sake of comfort and purpose, manage to become slaves in some capacity. However, there are two sides of a coin. The same may be said about modernism. We have an incredible guest on this episode of All Fingers and Thumbs,@_shivang09 , a political science student who is fascinated by many political theories as well as literature. We discussed modernity as a concept and attempted to comprehend the Indian context of modernism with the help of Gandhi and Tagore. Tomorrow, don't forget to watch or listen to our episode. P.S. - This is the first episode that was shot in a studio. As a result, this is a one-of-a-kind episode. Do shower love people!
