Searching for me

 

 

I can’t qualify to be a “Desperate housewife” because I have tried my hand at baking and simply lack the talent. I can’t identify myself with “Sex & the City” because I don’t live in a spectacular city. I am not obsessed with sex and most definitely don’t have a shoe fetish.

India’s great leader Mahatma Gandhi used satyagraha, a non-violent means of protest to achieve freedom from the British empire. Almost one century later, another satyagraha took place in India’s heartland, Madhya Pradesh, to protest against the local government. This time it was Jal satyagraha, submersion. (“Jal” is an old Sanskrit word which means water.  Jal satyagraha means protest inside water).
