For this year’s celebration of Dasara, Reclaim Constitution, a group in Bengaluru is aiming to celebrate the festival by displaying dolls of the ‘Founding Mothers.’. Their objective is to cultivate interest among youngsters regarding state and national affairs, and their policy-making and come up with creative ways to educate them about the constitution of India. This initiative is aimed at promoting diversity in Karnataka and the nation. The group is working towards making Dasara a community event instead of just a religious festival celebrated in individual homes.

Dasara dolls like the founding mothers- 15 women members of the Constituent Assembly, who debated and drafted the Constitution of India will be displayed in various parts of the city as a part of the Reclaim Constitution project. Dolls of women like Sarojini Naidu, Ammu Swaminathan, Dakshayani Velayudhan Begum Aizaz Rasul, Durgabai Deshmukh, Hansa Mehta, Kamla Chaudhary, Leela Roy, Malati Choudhury, Purnima Banerjee, Rajkumari will also be showcased.

Vinay Kumar, founder of Reclaim Constitution, stated “Despite the country’s median age being 26 years, we see a lack of interest in politics and poor participation from the youth. A large percentage of people in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha is from age groups above 50 years. Through creative initiatives such as these, I want the youth to realize that we have a responsibility towards the country.” He stated that some of the people who had a part in drafting the Constitution of India are from ordinary homes and they should be celebrated too.

“Not just religious figures, we also have statuettes of Babasaheb Ambedkar, Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, and Subhash Chandra Bose. Dolls representing Buddism, Jainism, Christianity, and Hinduism will also be on display,” Kumar said. Citizens are allowed to participate and put the dolls on display in their societies and committees, which can be availed from the Reclaim Constitution website. 

The founder of the Reclaim Constitution also stated that for next year Dasara celebrations the Constitution dolls will be turned into a traveling exhibit to commemorate the 75th year of the Constitution of India. The dolls will be on display for the public at Janapada Loka, Mysuru Road, for a month and in colleges and exhibition centers around the city.  The 15-women doll set took over 20 days to make. Artists from Chitrakala Parishad, Nanda Girish, Girish S, Raju, and Fastin Pedros are actively part of the project.
