Humse door jaoge kaise, dil se hum mein bhulaoge kaise … hum woh khushboo hai joh saason mein bastein hai, khud ki saason ko rok paoge kaise

i’m trying to lose 10 pounds but its diwali and there is sugar everywhere.
Some problems we share as women, some we do not. You [white women] fear your children will grow up to join the patriarchy and testify against you; we fear our children will be dragged from a car and shot down in the street, and you will turn your backs on the reasons they are dying.

When people of colour are expected to educate white people as to their humanity, when women are expected to educate men, lesbians and gay men are expected to educate the heterosexual world, the oppressors maintain their position and evade their responsibility for their own actions.
