The outpouring of solidarity and generosity on the JNU campus, since the attack of 5th January 2020 has been overwhelming.
Hostels have organised guerilla dhabas at Sabarmati. They have sung revolutionary songs while making pans of maggi and distributing jhal muri and peanuts.
Three women in the women’s wing in Sabarmati threw all the women in the hostel a party two nights ago.
During and after the events of the 5th, neighbours have become friends.
Our teachers have been coming to meet us every day. Some have brought bags full of snacks. Some have organised trauma sessions for us. Some have just held us.
And tonight Brahmaputra hostel organised a Sadbhavna mela for the campus. Free snack stalls all around, dholak music to dance to and a large Lohri bonfire.
