Jasbir lived in a very small town in a very small house. He was in college at the time of the riots and had come home for the Diwali vacation. His father prayed for  Indra Gandhi and then saw people pelting stones at him for being Sikh. Their family had to leave their home and hide in the police station for the night. They had to live in a house crowded with several families. Jasbir was in fear. Something could happen to his cousins and uncles and aunts. His house almost burned down. His father was almost attacked. Even after the riots had ended, he felt the waves of discrimination against Sikhs everywhere he went.
