" The tone and the reactions from traditionalist feminists to the list are disturbing and threatening. There are lists given of what Sarkar and her friends are or are not — Dalit, queer, American, Indian, Hindu fascist agent, liar, a hoax. These intimidating gestures are aimed at the young men and women of all castes and religions who are anti-caste seeking new possibilities in politics. They further reveal the politics of sex and death.

The reactions against the list are also fascist in their language, 'if you are not with us you are with evil'. This, ironically, is similar to the language of 'anti-national' used by the Hindu right for anyone who opposes it.

. . . .

In this era of technological explosion all of you are — you know who you are — already worlds away from the fantasies of postcolonial gossips riding their bullock carts calling out to ‘the subalterns’ to get out of the way. You are already a gathering in the form of a conch shell from which the matter of the world is murmuring its invitation to create an animal which can relieve the human. You are also suffering the weight of unprecedented crises which are descending."
