#hokkolorob: A Photostory of the Ongoing Movement in Jadavpur University

[September 2014 saw the dramatic escalation of a localised student movement in Jadavpur University in South Calcutta demanding a fair investigation into an incident of molestation of a girl in campus to a huge movement of students, intellectuals and citizens of Calcutta that strongly condemned the authoritarianism and callousness the university administration displayed in handling the situation. This photo-essay was originally published in This is a repost. For details regarding the initial student movement demanding a fair investigation and the punishment of the molesters, see
'Students, tired after a long day of protest, unwind with music, and much-needed sleep as the posters scream in the darkness. A photostory in (mostly) multiple exposure, documenting the ongoing protests in Jadavpur University at night, on the 11th of September, taken between 2am and 4am.'
