“Gurmehar Kaur – Indian student activist & author
Host Navjot Dhillon speaks to 21-year-old student activist (Delhi University) & author, Gurmehar Kaur. In October 2017, Time Magazine used the phrase “free speech warrior” in expressing their opinion of Gumehar and included her in their “10 Next Generation Leaders” list for 2017. She was also a speaker at the Harvard US India Initiative held in New Delhi in January 2018. Gurmehar shares her inspiration behind her book, “Small Acts of Freedom” and her circle of solidarity — her grandmothers, maasi and mother, Rajvinder Kaur — who held it together following her father’s (Captain Mandeep Singh, an Indian Army officer) death.
