In a reckless moment of vainglory, I said I wanted an article about the Modi gang’s attempt to suspend me from Twitter placed on my tombstone. Now a dear Kashmiri friend who was under the siege told me he used to tell his mom I would be fighting for Kashmir & when he came out of the country was delighted to see I was. Trash that damn suspension article. Being trusted as a steadfast ally in the struggle against oppression is truly an honor. That goes for all of us who are & there are legions of us. Would it be vainglory to want my friend’s expression of trust placed on my tombstone?

(PS: not that I’m planning my funeral any time soon since Kashmiri prayers will keep me going until there is a free Kashmir.)
