An Open Letter to Smriti Irani

Thanks to your stunning performance, we, faculty members of the University of Hyderabad, are compelled to do what we should have done in the past month or so, but could not bring ourselves to—write about Rohith Vemula, write about our other students, write about the state of academics, write about ourselves and society at large. Our first acknowledgement for this, therefore, goes to you for bringing us back from grief, from teaching and various other mundane things we do as part of our job.

We watched you on our TV screens on 24 February 2016, in a voice choked with emotion, referring to the “child” whose death has been used as a political weapon. We were left bewildered.
