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?

Passive participation in politics is proved not working, we need active participation. We need to do more than voting every once a while.

Justice delayed is justice denied. Justice was denied to Stan Swamy.

Delhi police special force raided Twitter India offices.
What is the message we should take from this?

"We don't need to back things up anymore. That's not the climate. It's about self-attestation, and then withdrawal if challenged"

It seems many consider only the right to get vaccinated themselves is right to health, its not just that, in case of a pandemic like covid 19, getting entire community vaccinated should be considered inside right to health. Because while getting themselves vaccinated will reduce the risk, the person can only be considered safe when the entire community they live in vaccinated.

Its not just there was a pandemic and he did nothing to stop it, Its not just incompetence or mismanagement, the actions were deliberate. Second wave was not unexpected, it was not unwarned, but PM Narendra Modi choose political gains over people's lives. Even in middle of a pandemic he focused on making his image look better, but this time the photoshoot was paid in dead bodies.

NB: If you are calling this a genocide, you also need to mention who did it.

Never thought we will have to fight for pyre wood. Underreporting risking lives of people is evil and the debt created by government's lies are paid by its people, with their cremated bodies.

I think BJP govt can do better to improve their public image and suppress the "fake news" against them. Let's invent some form of formal language that don't have anti national words which can be used against the party. We can call it pressspeak or newspeak or something like that. 🤷

Who decides what is against the integrity of India? When there are running in plain sight working to divide people, why a 21year old activist is in jail for a farmer protest ?

Its not very hard to see now, its no longer isolated incidents or kept in secrecy. The state is trying to tell us its no longer Democratic, that we need to take the hint and stay silent.
