Note to self: remember to be human, and not apathetic!!
In SLIC today Prof Tan related some personal anecdotes he had with human rights lawyer M Ravi. What a fascinating figure! It’s easy to lapse into passiveness despite being cognisant of issues we feel about. Hugely inspired and perplexed by his relentless will to fight for issues that should ideally be worthy causes!
As stated by KT: Ravi is running several arguments that we find interesting – for that reason he receives a lot of support and funding from QCs/local lawyers/academics. IMO he seems like a proxy that speaks for us issues we don’t broach for fear of public repercussion? I’m guilty of this too haha we are all hypocrites. (side note: I love lit and how I am constantly finding things that relate back to what AMS was about – the individual/society and idealism/reality)
