I have been sitting on this most recent post for the past month, unsure of how to discuss my time at Kauwa Kunda. The community is largely comprised of people with leprosy who have been outcast from their homes. They were kind, patient, and open, and I have walked away utterly confused.
I have been traversing rural Surguja on motorcycle with Vipul Paikra, a tribal rights activist. We've been riding deep into the forest to speak with people who are not receiving their entitlements because of Aadhaar. Their stories have complicated my thinking and challenged my convictions.
