Haven't finished watching the whole talk yet but some interesting points being made. The importance of introducing our children to the problems faced in the community from a young age in a way which they can process it. Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra jis daughter says how from a very young age her father would take her and her siblings to conferences discussing what was going in the Punjab in the 90s and introduce them to Punjabi activists of the time. I think a lot of parents seem to shield their children from all the gritty stuff from the past and present and decide to teach them about it when they are in their teens and clearly not interested.
Got a feeling this isn't going to end well 😐 tensions are rising, think government is going to come back with force.
A lot of kisaan from West UP are trying to get into Delhi but they have been blocked.
Celebs like Sunny Deol, Hans Raj and Daler Mehndi support the bill, BJP sell outs.
There are some on social media who are criticising Deep Sidhu and claiming that allowed himself to be ambushed by Barkha and that he should have steered clear of answering the question about Sant Bhindranwale. I think he did well because we should not allow ourselves to be railroaded into accepting the govt narrative. If the threat is that by putting forward our views about Sant Bhindranwale means that we will lose public support then our efforts should be not to accept the views of the propagandised public but to change their views. To me it looked like Barkha was genuinely shocked that Deep Sidhu defended Sant Bhindranwale and this just shows how insidious and deep rooted has become the govt propaganda. Her shock and no doubt the shock of the vast majority of her viewers are actually a good thing because when we become shocked by the views of another person, human nature is such that we seek to know why that person has that opinion. The only way to so this is to read what that person has read and I ma sure that Barkha has been shocked enough to research more into the topic because up to now she has just read and believed the govt narrative.
