Book Name: Small Acts of Freedom
Book Author: Gurmehar Kau
In the month of February 2017, a nineteen-year-old student, Gurmehar Kaur, joined a peaceful campaign after violent clashes at a Delhi University college. As part of the campaign, Gurmehar Kaur’s post made her the target of an onslaught of social media vitriol.
Gurmehar Kaur, the daughter of a Kargil martyr, suddenly became a focal point of a nationalism debate. Facing a trial by social media, Kaur almost retreated into herself. But she was never brought up to be silenced. ‘Real bullets killed my father. Your hate bullets are deepening my resolve,’ she wrote then.
Today, Gurmehar Kaur is doubly determined not to be silent. The book, Small Acts of Freedom is her story. This is the story of three generations of strong, passionate single women in one family, women who have faced the world on their own terms. With an unusual narrative structure that crisscrosses elegantly between present and past, spanning 70 years from 1947 to 2017, this book Small Acts of Freedom is about courage.
It is about strength, resilience and love. From her grandmother who came to India from Lahore after Partition to the whirlwind romance between her parents, from her father’s state funeral to her harrowing experiences since her days of student activism, Gurmehar Kaur’s debut is about the fierceness of love, the power of family and the little acts that beget big revolutions.
