Dr. S Kaur

In this interview, we notice the coming of age of the childhood trauma of 1984. Dr. S. Kaur (*Blurred face by request*) recounts being the child of a serviceman; the confusion of hearing about the attack of June; watching and facing discrimination in school, including being told by her Principal, “I will take revenge on you”. She explains how there are so many memories she subconsciously blocked out because she didn’t want to face discrimination. She had stopped using Kaur as her last name. She also now remembers a friend who cut his hair shortly after 1984, and later died of an illness–but he believed this was the Almighty punishing him. She explains how she has never spoken about 1984 and subsequent years ever since… till she was interviewed by the 1984 Living History Project.
