India – A Love Story
The story of Sharda Baruah’s life and love is also the story of the best version of India. An India we have been, one we are capable of being again. In 1958, she married U L Baruah, but this love between a Hindu woman and a Muslim man transcended way beyond religious identities.
“My grandparents were orthodox in outlook, but there was no hatred for the other in their hearts. To be conservative about one’s religious or cultural practices doesn’t mean we cannot have compassion for all of humanity”
Sharda Baruah passed away in 2021. Her words will always echo in our hearts as we search for love in a world increasingly becoming more intolerant and hateful.
