On the show - student leaders from campuses debate if soldiers have turned whistleblowers. After multiple video complaints emerged from Indian soldiers about poor facilities, the Indian Army Chief responded, saying, "soldiers aren't soldiers if they complain on social media" and that they "should directly complain' to him." Also on the show, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi spins off Mahatma Gandhi off the Khadi Association's annual calendar - even echoing the Mahatma's iconic image as he spins a charkha - Khadi workers and the opposition are outraged. Is this systematic appropriation of Gandhi's legacy or, as the BJP government puts it, is it 'unnecessary noise'?
