Seeing Delhi burn today, a curious dead weight has settled in my skin. Yet, I am one of the privileged ones, if not by the geographical distance from the violence-affected areas, but by the status given to me by my father’s name: a middle class Hindu. Funny how “Main Hindu hoon” has become a secret password to protect yourself and not be inflicted with horrible mob lynching and violence.
It is, of course, the crude truth now that many of our tiny hearts have become overwhelmed with heavy emotions and unsaid rage, and anger against the current ‘great’ government at the Centre, it almost feels like they have taken revenge on Delhi for not electing them to power in Delhi.
Well, planned or not (it was planned), remember, you Hindutva obsessed bigots, that DELHI WILL NOT FORGOT THIS. YOU HAVE VERY WELL MARKED YOUR DEMISE IN DELHI.
