Small Acts of Freedom is a real story written by a twenty-year-old Gurmehar Kaur who was recently in the spotlight, after raising her voice against violence on campuses in the wake of clashes in Ramjas College. Kaur had advocated peace — from endorsing stronger Indo-Pak ties to free speech among youth — for nearly a year now.
Book Title: Small Acts of Freedom
by Gurmehar Kaur
In February 2017, Gurmehar Kaur, a nineteen-year-old student, joined a peaceful campaign after violent clashes at a Delhi University college. As part of the campaign, Kaur’s post made her the target of an onslaught of social media vitriol.
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, Kaur is doubly determined not to be silent. 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.
It’s about resilience, strength, and love. From her grandmother who came to India from Lahore after Partition to the whirlwind romance between her parents. Her father’s state funeral to her harrowing experiences since her days of student activism. Gurmehar Kaur’s debut is about the intenseness of love, the power of family and the little acts that beget big revolutions.
