More arrests. We return from a day at the beach–a wonderful multi-generation family gathering with the older generation, my cousins, our kids. Just a calm January day where we bask in the sun, eat fresh fruit, zeera biscuits, and home-made haleem.
But when we reach home, my sister’s phone starts ringing: During the evening vigil outside Justice Bhagwandas’ home to protest his house arrest, eight individuals–people we know–were arrested. They are expected to be released on bail sometime tonight. The official word regarding Justice Bhagwandas’ arrest is that it’s for ‘his protection.’ The madness continues.
