Quotes[edit | edit source]
|«||Growing up queer in a Muslim household in India is not easy, to say the least. So as a storyteller, I decided to use silence as a tool. Silence makes one connect deeper with oneself. Silence makes you think. Silence isn’t preachy. It makes you uncomfortable to be with, since we live in a world where everyone is trying to be louder than the other to be heard so I decided to go silent. Silence is where most love stories are born and where we find a deeper connection with one another. It is in silence where the biggest decisions are made. What can be more powerful than silence?||»|
|«||There is a perception that nonbinary is also a binary. Criticism from the queer community also flows in occasionally because a lot of people don’t understand that the very point of being nonbinary is not belonging to a binary.||»|
