Obituary : Rest in power, Abhay Flavian Xaxa

In Akhilesh Yadav

By Subrata Kumar Sahu

Dear Abhay Flavian Xaxa, Rest in Power, my friend. I can’t believe you are no more. Not only the indigenous people of the world but the world itself has lost its voice in a time it needed the most. But your voice will stay alive and keep inspiring us. You will live forever.

|| I Refuse, I Reject, I Resist ||

~ Abhay Flavian Xaxa

I am not your data, nor am I your vote bank,
I am not your project, or any exotic museum object,
I am not the soul waiting to be harvested,
Nor am I the lab where your theories are tested,
I am not your cannon fodder, or the invisible worker,
or your entertainment at India habitat center,
I am not your field, your crowd, your history,
your help, your guilt, medallions of your victory,
I refuse, reject, resist your labels,
your judgments, documents, definitions,
your models, leaders and patrons,
because they deny me my existence, my vision, my space,
your words, maps, figures, indicators,
they all create illusions and put you on pedestal,
from where you look down upon me,
So I draw my own picture, and invent my own grammar,
I make my own tools to fight my own battle,
For me, my people, m
y world, and my Adivasi self!
