#pleaseread Thread: Couldn’t understand why I could not sleep. I then realise that it’s four years ago to the very night that I hit my lowest point. I was in despair, borderline suicidal with no idea what to do or where to go. All because of an abusive relationship.
I was with my bully of an ex. He showed such narcissism that led me to believe that absolutely everything was my fault. I was never good enough. I’d been bullied so much that I’d lost over 20kgs in stress and fear in just over 12 months. I’d become a crumbling wreck.
He told me this night he debated leaving me as he didn’t find me sexy. I was ugly. That I didn’t do it for him anymore, and I believed it was all me. I wasn’t good enough. I was frozen. He still wanted sex but then berated me when I couldn’t do it. Too scared. Leaving me in tears

Shah Faesal's father was killed by militants when he was 19. He became a doctor, topped IAS. Is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard. Joined politics to serve people better. Believed in Indian democracy & inspired Kashmiris. Today he's *locked up* & called *anti national*

India, 2019
Shah Faesal is a Fulbright scholar at Harvard, visits it regularly. Was going there when he was detained at Delhi airport. Sanghis said he was fleeing the country, meeting "terrorists" at Turkey (he had a connecting flight) etc. Now Harvard has written to Modi seeking his release
#ShahFaesal was a doctor, IAS, politician, scholar, motivator. He father was killed by militants yet he chose the pen instead of a gun. He chose compassion over revenge. This man is a legend in Kashmir. Today he's called 'anti national' and we wonder why Kashmiris distrust India?

Ranga ji,
1. Onion-garlic is basic veg nutrition + lends taste
2. Critics aren't demanding chicken-mutton
3. Many Hindus protesting notion of 'satvik' UC food being "pure", others impure
4. Muslims /Waqf unelated to this
5. Muslims don't lynch non-veg /pork eaters
6. Shame on you
Akshay Patra gets states, central govt grants (50% as per its website) + donations. That's taxpayers & donors ACROSS communities. It earns social & monetary capital. Taxpayers within rights to demand culturally inclusive (onion-garlic), tasty food for kids
