Muslims should peacefully accept the decision of the Supreme Court of India even if its verdict goes against the community

I would rather urge the community to give away the disputed land to Hindus whose feelings are so deeply attached to the place.

I don’t think the myopia was just about the need for housing. It was more fundamental than that. Planning itself lost its way in the city.

In the everyday life of most citizens, both planning and law have “sold” a good story about themselves. They are technical, evidence-based, objective, powerful and complex and thus left best to experts.

At this point, our concern is to refuse to let the Supreme Court to pass the buck on this. We have asked the Supreme Court a question on constitutional rights. It cannot refuse to answer that question.

Every trend — in everyday life, in court and jurisprudence – was pointing in the opposite direction. We’ve had a decision overturned that the Indian government did not appeal. It’s an astonishing kind of reversal.

No one can predict what you can do. Don’t underestimate yourself.

It’s definitely a great recognition for me and my team. It has been a beautiful journey working for Goonj. I am happy that we have been able to change many lives in the course of time.

We will just continue to do the kind of work that we are doing. I don’t think there will be any change in the way me or my team operates. People might start looking at us in a different way but that’s a separate thing.

It is extremely important for people to understand the ethos, the concept of the parallel economy, which we say is trash-based and not cash-based, the larger concept of civic participation; how people are getting involved and how second-hand material is taking the shape of currency.

I think we’ll keep on operating as usual. Nothing will change. We stand by our goal – to grow as an idea, rather than as an organization.

People should take interest in the work we are doing. So far, those who have taken an interest come here primarily to study the supply chain management (which I find very silly as any logistics work has supply chain management).

Initially, it was a difficult task. When you do something in public or enter into public life, several people start doubting your integrity and start questioning you. I too, faced these kinds of problems in the initial phase.

I didn't want to give these clothes as an act of charity. Charity strips people of self-respect. Thus, the concept of Cloth for Work came into being.

In villages and slums, where women and girls don't have enough to clothe themselves, menstrual hygiene is really poor. At Goonj, we repurpose old cotton into hygienic pads and use them to generate awareness about hygiene and the myths associated with menstruation
