It feels that the earth is protesting against the fascist and the capitalist ways of life to slow down, to not rush and step back, literally and metaphorically. And it is in these times of bearing witness to the social isolation and slowdown that it becomes clearer that others are experiencing a similar loss of past self and the emergence of a new one.

Days before his arrest, the image of Sharjeel was constructed by the media as a ‘threat’ to the nation and Hindus. The fear was created to legitimize ensuing sedition charges on him. With Sharjeel’s issue, attempts are being made to communalize Delhi voters who are going to cast votes within a week.
