PRI's The World


Places like this ordinary looking block in New Jersey named Ambedkar avenue only someone is cast depressed with go through the effort to to try to file to get a street in doctrine bed car, but they did it. And I think it's this very. Special secret knowledge of oppress people that someone lifted up into the American consciousness the street is an Omar to a man who lifted up millions when he wrote India's constitution before he died in nineteen fifty-six Ambedkar, also converted to Buddhism rejecting the Hindu religion. And it's caste system that had oppressed his people, and he encourages fellow dollars to do the same many did play. I'm beat Dr Baker and laud with the I followers because he uplifted us Maria of charm, all is a scientist in New Jersey. And she goes out of her way to drive down in bed. Karamanou she says she would not be in America. If were not for embed car before Ambedkar, we were not verify rights. We were called untouchables. No one was touching us. No one wanted to eat with us. He uplifted us. He fought for us. He gave us the right of knowledge to study embed cars connection with America. Is actually older than the Indian diaspora now living here he lived for a time in New York and got an economics degree from Columbia in nineteen twenty seven. There's even a statue in his honour on the campus. Then Morrison DARA Rajon knows the statue. Well, I've taken so many Indian to come to visit New York they'll go to Columbia to see the embed cards statue. And they'll go to St. to see that he's like part of the the natural fabric of the city. And so that to me is amazing and Embiid is part of the fabric of the American civil rights movement to Martin Luther King junior was moved by the Daulat calls on his trip to India and the American civil rights movement in turn influenced the Daulat movement inspiring the Daulat Panthers this weekend. There'll be more celebrations of embed cars life last weekend and cities around the world there were parties to celebrate his birthday. Well, there wasn't much happening here on embed crab, new in New Jersey Sendero Rajon says the street still serves as a daily inspiration because that street is there I'm reminded that I am crucial part of the American fabric. There's so many people that want to join the battle against cast. It's not just cast oppressed peoples anymore. And I think that street is just a small part of that process. And so for that unfilled with, you know, a great level of love and joy for the world. I'm a ruined raw. If you've gotten a cheese slice to the face recently. You've probably run into tech talk. I don't have an account myself by the Chinese short video app has become very popular here in the US, especially among younger audiences and that whole cheese thing. It's just one of many silly challenge is going viral Antic talk. The app is gaining a following in many other countries to India. For example, they've already got one hundred twenty million users and tick tock parent company bite dance is investing a billion dollars in India. But the Indian government has just been the app we asked tech lawyer niche ton done to explain what's going on. He's a New Delhi? It started with Bollywood music songs. Short clips of those people down to the to the Bollywood tunes. Sometimes it'd be dialogues from a movie and people mimicking and w to those dialogues. Joining millennialism day go that have been stars that have been celebrities being being born on the platform itself. So they're generating their own content. We've seen stand up comics we've seen musician. We've seen dancers and performers coming up with their own creative content. Also, so now technique is banned from what I hear. It sounds like tick tock keeps running into trouble with parents and privacy laws and children rights advocacy, groups, not just an India. But a lot of places the US as well, why is that what's going on?.
