Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her: "I was born in 1992 ... [at] a little fishing town on the outskirts of Maharashtra called Dhanu ... At about noon on October 13, two weeks before I was actually due, my mother declared national emergency because she couldn't feel me kicking ... The doctors decided to perform an emergency C-section because the umbilical cord, which had wound itself around my neck, had decreased the circulation to my brain ... the doctors could safely and quickly perform the procedure. I was born at 2 pm" ("The strength of a woman," excerpt from Ria Sharma’s Make Love Not Scars, the pioneer, 3 March 2019 [1]).
