Last week I was on a call with a couple of Middle Eastern bloggers and Instagrammers on the topic of ‘BLM and what can we do about it’. One of the members mentioned that she was feeling hopeful, because she is seeing so many people talking about it for the first time.
Do you feel that way? I am feeling more and more helpless as I read the tweets and videos. Yes, there is an occasional spark of hope – like when the Kpop fans broke the ‘White lives Matter’ app, but then it ebbs out.
A few days ago I was speaking to Evelina about racism and casteism in Indian society and I was emotional wreck all through it, because even my own circle of family and friends refuses to accept it.
The irony is that it is the same group of people that posts about BLM and how bad Trump is, all the while completely ignoring the news on how a Dalit teen was killed by 4 men for entering into a place of worship, just last week. But of course it is a fake news!
What I read this week
On the other news, I finished reading Normal People by Sally Roone and I loved it.
I am currently reading Daisy Jones And the Six.
What I watched this week
I am currently watching Fargo and I am loving it. It is definitely slow but it is gripping. And knowing that it is a true story makes it all the more interesting.
The stranger by Harlen Coben was ok but kinda predictable. Blame it on me for having watched/ read too many thrillers now.
