Five Months Ago

Sunday, December 22, 2019

I wrote this five months ago:

16 July 2019
I'm now reading a book by Arundhati Roy, My Seditious Heart. It's a collection of essays she'd written in the past 20 years. The essays are mostly about the building of the huge Sardar Sarovar Dam that spans the three Indian states of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Gujarat. From the start she's been adamant in her opposition to the construction of the dam for the evils it could or would bring to local communities: flooding, lost homes, lost livelihoods. She is incandescent with rage.
The only person I know who would be interested in this is you. But you're not here. I miss you so.
