We will be in conversation with Nikita Singh and talking all things love and books! 22nd Feb Mumbai | 23rd Feb Bangalore.
From ‘those days’ when queens killed themselves for the sake of honour, what has changed for Indian women? These incidents tell us: Not Enough.
A revered queen became the muse for a dream spinner, who cited ‘artistic license’, when asked to explain his version. This – an unshakable cornerstone for an evolved society – most opined!
But the aforesaid inspiration, was it a myth or a deified reality? Opinions stood starkly divided. The angry and anguished devotees felt slighted. Sighting a chance for bloody headlines and grabbing eyeballs grabbing, the fringe elements and rabid rabble rousers took over, issuing vile threats to the protagonists involved.
It was business as usual, away from the studios, across millions of homes.
And the beyond-beautiful queen mulled, from the worlds above, ‘Self-immolation was my solution. Became salvation. Did anything really change across centuries? Did the women not stop being mere commodities? Would this story be ever rewritten?’
When the prestige and honour of one daughter is all that matters…
The reputation of another daughter is shred to tatters!
While the world noisily natters.
