The streets are screaming tonight.

An agony of flame is visible from my window

Black and yellow

An echo of the cries that surround me.


Until I draw the curtains

and bolt the door

To shut out a world

that has lost touch with humanity.


In its way

the silence is sometimes

more ominous than the sound.


I am safe now

but for the images

that have been burned into my brain.


I am safe now

but for the anguish

that has been ringing in my ears.


I am safe now

but I rest uneasily doused

in painful technicolour.


I am safe now

I am safe

but I am remembering…

This selection of photographs is dedicated to all those who have been victims of the violence that has consumed Gujarat since February this year. We need to face up to the horror that has been inflicted on our people.

For the people who died in the attack on the Sabarmati Express at Godhra on February 27, 2002.
In memory of all those who have been killed in the genocide in Gujarat, which began on February 28, 2002.

We list  the names of those victims that were available to us, as a reminder that the unrecognisable figures we see are men, women and children who were born to live but made to die.
