Kalki narrates a self written poem titled ‘The Printing Machine’: a rhythmic and scathing satire against news gatherers: daily broadsheets, magazines, social media and textbooks. With an eerie and almost industrial cadence, the poem with its rising crescendo reveals the hollow and robotic production and consumption of news by a generation so blinded by its vulgar hunger for juicy headlines. Centered around crimes against women, she alludes to events that shook the nation, and also to those that were equally gruesome but got replaced by beauty advertisements and our apathy.
