A short story.
4 people (introduced themselves as social activists) visit a veteran in his house who offered them chai & snacks. During the course of the conversation, they started discussing the veteran's writings & social media posts which were critical of the govt.

All of a sudden they get terribly agitated & the language takes a downward spiral & curse words creep in.
A terrible trait in most of us Indians begin with 'Jaante nahin ho, hum kaun hain?"
'Kaun ho Bhai?'
A swelling of a body part later, "hum RSS waale hain. Agar tum ne...

...ye anti BJP aur anti Modi lekh band nahin kiya, toh achha nahin hoga."

'Kyon? Kya achha nahin hoga?'

Some incredulous looks were exchanged amongst themselves. They get up in a huff & body language takes an aggressive turn.
"Kalburgi yaad hai, na?"

'Ji.'

"Soch lena."

Dear Sanusi,

This would be very laudable, especially that the northern elders have failed to provide a solution to the menace. Let us start from this, while we concentrate on modalities of social rehabilitation & inclusion of the millions already on the street.

Yesterday the @DeltaCouncil voted to prioritize a levee investment strategy that prioritizes water exports over protecting human life with the promise of re-evaluating the plan later on. This is not good enough!
Around 50% of the residents in North Delta Legacy towns are people of color; the poverty rate reaches up to 30% in some places. This is a significant environmental justice community.
Environmental justice communities do not recover from flood. We have a similar problem in Stockton where the Army Corps of Engineers has underfunded levee upgrades that are needed in South Stockton where there is a large population (different planning track).
