Shaheen Bagh is like pilgrimage site for pro democracy people. Groups coming in from all directions chanting slogans, having talks at main stage, thousands spread across the road, people showing their creativity in diverse ways, standing around campfire in the cold winter night of Delhi and most of us were women. For sometime, I felt like I was at the greatest place on earth.
What are we planning to do after this? Even if we succeed?
Should we continue trusting the current political system that allowed this to happen? Or should we get out and be part of creating a new culture of politics?

Who will watch the #watchmen.

India, home to this enduring symbol of love (pointing Taj Mahal), franky deserves lot more, than this temporary symbol (pointing at Narendra Modi) of hate.

It will take immense bravery to stay non violent after all this thrashing, killing and fire. It is expected for someone to snap after all this provocation. Its too much to ask, but I request the Muslims to stay brave.
