Riots and rituals appear to play a significant role in the construction of social identities. Rituals relate to community on a personal level and collectively create symbolic activities in the public space. There is a strong association of identity and public spaces in both riots and rituals. These acts link family, politics and religion, colonial past and independent present and can be a tool for subversive interpretation and collective representation about a sub/pop cultures.
