India's 1st Illegal Immigrant Detention Camp Size Of 7 Football Fields.
The mass detention centre in Assam's Goalpara distirct can house 3,000 people and is being built over an area of 2.5 hectares, about the size of seven soccer fields.
A quick reminder, for those of you who didn't follow the NRC proceedings in Assam. One of the worst affected groups were women from poorer families.
Women usually don't have their name on property documents.
Women marry, move locations and become part of "other families". They lack access to their parents' and grandparents' documents.
Generations of women change their names for men - and lose the paper trail for their ancestry.
A thread by blurple blob ( @firstname.lastname@example.org ) on the link between Abusive Parenting & BJP's propoganda:
Citizens: here's how I think the economy should be handled
BJP: let me handle it! I'm more experienced than you
BJP: *breaks the economy, causes an explosion, the entire country is in shambles*
Citizens: wtf did you do
BJP: AT LEAST I TRIED, YOU COULDN'T HAVE DONE BETTER!!!
@hackiechan Always remember that whatever we are witnessing in terms of events and whoever we are interacting with in terms of people - all of it is just a drop in an ocean. Thus, we should see where the collective good of the society resides. So even if a few hard core islamist elements shout their slogans, if it helps a cause which is better for the society, we can accept their help. I have always wondered this. Being a true liberal is almost impossible if we want to be effective!
I'm so confused about which crisis to prioritise now: my home state burning, Kashmir, the possibility of NRC nationwide in India, the global resurgence of the far-right, India's spiralling economy, gender wars and women's safety, climate change... Sigh.
No wonder I feel like exiting human civilization and society, going to a remote part of the hills and meditating.
+ This is from India Gate, earlier tonight. People came together to read the Preamble to the Constitution:
"WE, THE PEOPLE OF INDIA,
having solemnly resolved to constitute India
into a SOVEREIGN SOCIALIST SECULAR DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC
and to secure to all its citizens..."
I know, protests don't win battles like this one. But when we reached the part that goes "...and give to ourselves this Constitution", I felt such a sense of ownership, partnership, in this land.
Many promises to keep.
