When are you going to stop talking about me?
When we start to talk about the criminal justice system, we’re talking about people of colour, women, queer people, immigrants and trans people.
This is not an easy conversation to have in India, where the word “transgender” conjures images of “third sex” and “gay” and people of color are regularly imprisoned, tortured and murdered.
We’re talking to one person, who has spent more than five years in prison for “non-cooperation” in an anti-corruption probe, who faces a maximum sentence of 10 years for violating an order that prohibited her from travelling abroad.
She has spent the last three years in solitary confinement in a government-run prison in Pune.
The man is not a criminal, and has been convicted of his crime.
He has no criminal record.
He’s a citizen, and a member of a community that has been brutally persecuted.
But he has no right to be in prison.
And he has never asked for a change in the law.
It’s the same story for my friend.
She is a Dalit, a Dalits person who is part of the “Dalit community” in Parel.
She came out to me as a Dalita in 2016, but has never received any support.
We’ve lived in Preeti, and we’ve had a very, very tough life.
I’ve met many Dalits, and I know how they feel.
There are times when I am very proud of my community, and my community is very proud that I am proud of myself.
But when you’re talking on this subject, you need to be very careful.
You have to be careful not to say something that you may not be able to keep quiet.
I don’t want to be a spokesperson for the community, because that might be a sign of a change.
We are all part of a “community” that is being oppressed.
We’re all members of the same “community”.
We are all trying to make our lives better.
This country has given us everything we’ve got.
We have a job to do.
But, we don’t have a voice.
We don’t get the power to make decisions.
We just live in this country, and have to live with the fact that we don´t have a say.
I have heard people say that India has been a democracy, but it has not been.
We need to change this.
We can change this by speaking up and being louder.
And we need to stop blaming the victim, the victimizers, the criminal.
I am talking about the real culprits.
And I am not talking about a politician.
I do not think that we should be talking about politicians, or the politicians.
It is not about them.
We should be working with the people.
