It has been more than a year since the December 13th violence that took place at the Jamia Millia Islamia campus in 2019. With that began the Anti-Citizenship Act movement with Shaheen Bagh in New Delhi at its centre. A Muslim-dominated area, where women sat in bitter winter nights for days on end, asking for the CAA Act to be repealed and resisting the National Register of Citizens. A year is not a long time; its emotional impact has not been spoken about either. The young students are ordinary people in whose hearts trauma has made a home.
