Since December, people across India have mobilized to protest against the government after it passed a law that many see as discriminatory against Muslims, tribals, scheduled caste and scheduled tribes, lower and weaker income community, orphanages, old age homes, and the LGBTQ community. People, especially women have been on the front lines of these protests.

As an independent photojournalist, I have attended the organized as well as the flash protests in Hyderabad to capture the people's determination, energy, resistance against the system, against the discrimination, and most importantly, the unity and harmony which the system wants to disrupt.

I would like to showcase this resistance, as the people reclaim their voice, their power, their opinions in a photo exhibition over a period of two days. From 1st February 2020 - 2nd February 2020.
