From the 1984 anti-Sikh riots to the agitation at Delhi’s Singhu border against the controversial farm laws, Jasbir Kaur has seen a great deal. She was 39 when the riots broke out in the capital in the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination. Thirty-six years later, images of the passionate protests against the three farm laws and the pushback they invited brought back the trauma and had her heading to the protest site on the Delhi-Haryana border.
