A few days ago, I found asking myself the following question: My country is burning, why should I work?

I ended up with some (admittedly inchoate) thoughts. 👇🏾
I’m unable to see why I shouldn’t drop everything and rush to Delhi (the Jamia Milia violence is about to peak). But I know there must be some reason to persevere with what one likes to do and is interested in doing instead of rushing to the frontlines at every sign of trouble.
There *must* be an illustrative story about duty and country, the insidious diminishment of one endeavour in favour of another. We must resist the forces of tyranny and fascism, but there is less freedom to choose any forms of resistance other than pouring out on the streets.
