Harsh Mander is an activist, writer, columnist, researcher and teacher. A former IAS officer, he is currently the director of the Centre for Equity Studies, New Delhi – an independent organization that aims to examine the nature and causes of social injustice. He is the founder of the campaigns 'Aman Biradari', for secularism, peace and justice; 'Nyayagrah', for legal justice and reconciliation for the survivors of communal violence; 'Dil Se', for streetchildren; and 'Hausla' for urban homeless people. He is also the author, most recently, of 'Fatal Accidents of Birth: Stories of Suffering, Oppression and Resistance'. Earlier this month, along with a group of activists, he embarked upon 'Karwan-e-Mohabbat'—a journey across India to spread the message of love and peace in the face of a growing wave of intolerance in the country.
