Inter-faith marriages are a result of a secret revolution- a Love-Jihad! Men lure women into religious conversions on the pretext of love marriage. Such beliefs have led to hate crimes and mob lynching for the sake of upholding one’s propaganda. Such polarization of the society had led to fear and unrest in the secular spirit.
One’s “right to life” must not be forgotten, yet there had been attempts to legitimize this act of control and subjugation. Such, times generate nightmares for the waking, thinking mind. What if, the persecution becomes systematic like that of a tyrant or a dictator. “Dose” explores the dark abyss to find a streak of light. No matter how faint that might be.
Memories hark back to the times of megalomania and the discourses on miscegenation. Not a long time back. In Nazi Germany, the Dictator passed the Nuremberg laws which banned a Jew from marrying a German. This would “protect” the Aryan race. We know how it ended. The Holocaust cannot be erased from our conscience.
“Dose” juxtaposes the absurd semblances of such heady power-trips of the venomous propaganda, from the past to the present. Through a dash of satire and a somber humor “Dose” explores a very deep and dark abyss to perhaps, find a streak of light to mirror; what we fail to see otherwise.
