Blue is the Colour I Choose – Tanya Singh
3 in stock
Generations of mine walked on fire
So we didn’t have to feel the heat
Did you think we will let it go to waste?
Did you think we will let your fires reach us?
Depressed, harijans, untouchables, you called us
And you made sure we were blue
Dalits, Veeranganas, Ambedkarites, we are,
Blue is the colour we choose.
