Sahil was about 20 years old when he realised the privilege that had bound him his entire life. This pushed him to rethink his entire educational aspirations and work in a space where he is able to make more meaningful contributions to the people around him. As he further reflected on the society around him, he saw how the social markers of caste and gender were woven around him. In his own hometown, caste was implied in others’ names, their work, clothes and marriages. Digging deeper into his own schooling, he realised how there exists a major gap between what most Indians are taught about and the reality that exists in our everyday lives.
