I wonder why certain principles and standards of morality and sacrifice apply only to a poor man and not the one who wields power, despite the fact that both are from the same community. This is, I believe, a complete subversion of truth and justice.

There must be lots she wants to say, she tries making noises and we respond to them as we did to her talk before. The sound of a song elicits a response; she looks in the direction of the sound and moves her head slowly as if in response to it. When she sees a familiar face, she looks on for a moment before smiling a faint smile.
Muslims across the country have had lesser exposure and access than the average Indian to primary education, healthcare and credit, and have often fallen prey to discrimination and ethnic violence. Issues pertaining to inadequacy in education, lack of institutional support, weak economic conditions, lack of employment and employability, cultural gap, inadequate representation in administrative bodies, lack of security, lack of adequate reservations, etc. have cropped up time and again in recent history.

Gadsby offers no escape route. She is not pretending to be indifferent to her own trauma. She is asking for compassion, she is demanding to be heard and understood.

Depression is a major illness worldwide and is one of the main reasons for disability. 350 million people globally suffer from this ailment. Depression is not a mere irregularity like flu but can bring long-term side effects if left untreated. The saddest part is that women are more prone to depression than men.

If the PM truly intends to safeguard democracy, he must start listening to people and looking for solutions that people expect the government to provide. Exercise videos may be light hearted, but the government cannot lose sight of the real problems. It cannot ignore the safety and future of people, especially of those who are poor and marginalized.
