It reads: "An International recognition for an Indian is an opportunity, not to celebrate the self, but to acknowledge the millions of marginalised, downtrodden and victimised Indians who are locked in a daily battle for dignity, livelihood and survival.
As a child of privilege myself, I pledge this
award nomination to all those who risk themselves to protect the affirming, all-embracing spirit of India, and to all the brave individuals across the world, who fight to resist the malicious forces of oppression, bigotry and injustice, every single day."
Reacting to the emotional speech, a user wrote, "Don't discard it. You will eventually be winning..."
