Get up close and personal with #FabSosh Co-Founder Sharna:
"The Northeast is so diverse and mainly comprised of indigenous tribal peoples. Political author Arundati Roy once connected the experiences of military oppression, land and resource theft with indigeneity in India. This is a global phenomenon but the longer I live here, the more I see this is play out in the Northeast. I also see how the Development agenda in India is resisted and absorbed, and in all cases how women are totally invisible, totally unheard, and totally excluded from any of the benefits some development programs might bring (while bearing the brunt of the harms that much development also brings). The Northeast is a centre of power struggles of all kinds, and what brought me here – and what keeps me here – is the work women are doing. I simply want to express my solidarity through practical action."
