Your post has made me look at tattoos and the word azadi afresh. Never saw tattoos as archival elements ... it’s such a powerful thought to do that! Azadi as a word is used / abused quite loosely here in India ... to see it as possibly the only term that remains undivided post partition says a lot about the power of such a short, simple, unassuming word. The layers that it has are astounding. Thanks for giving some food for thought to chew on. Maybe I’ll just go get a tattoo myself. :-)
