Sagar Gonsalves, son of ex-Mumbai University Professor and activist Vernon Gonsalves, described the events of August 28, when their home was raided and his father was arrested, as a “déjà vu experience.” “Once again there was a raid by the police for six hours and I saw the cycle repeating. The first time around I was 12 and felt helpless and even now it was the same thing,” he said. “I am no more under the illusion that only bad people go to jail,” he added talking about how his early childhood experiences shaped him.
