Raj's eye

"That's my eye" Raj said to me pointing at this picture. Drawing can be therepeutic I guess but this drawing made me understand how fragile and sensitive men in detention can be. It is not often that you will see any man cry in public. They bottle up their tears in private. But I must say, on the day that the high court released its decision to rule indefinite detention inhumane there were tears in public. I could see just how much a fragment of hope could break the fascade of composure and reveal all the fears and anxiety that years in detention had created.
