In memory of the 2,000 men, women and children killed in the state-led genocide in Gujarat in 2002 and the 2,00,000 who lost their homes and dignity.

    I should be ashamed
    of raising issues that divide
    – they say.

    But how can I forget
    those they killed
    mutilated and those they left
    still hiding their nakedness.

    I will shout from the rooftops
    make memorials of poems
    I will draw from the eyes
    of the killers
    not blood, but tears.
