Ankita Konwar on Racism

Recently, Konwar was in news for voicing against racism faced by the people from the northeast after Mirabai Chanu’s Olympic triumph.

“If you’re from Northeast India, you can become an Indian ONLY when you win a medal for the country. Otherwise we are known as ‘chinky’ ‘Chinese’ ‘Nepali’ or a new addition ‘corona’. India is not just infested with casteism but racism too. Speaking from my experience”, she tweeted.
