The power of the collective woman is strong - if a million Indian women come together, what can we not do?
What do you think
Your threats, shaming, and endless discrimination can do
I can speak, oh yes, and
My courage is infinitely greater than your underestimation.
Because I’m not alone, I’m strong,
I consist of the million women of this country,
I am a single breathing creature of these thousand voices.
Try drowning my dignity,
With all the raping, abuse, feticide, and the rest of that endless list and
I will fight back, equally strong,
In the moral way, I have substance-
I’ll rise higher every time you shove me down,
I am a being with every ounce of the capacity you think I lack.
I lack nothing and
I’m proud of what I am; don’t try making me ashamed because
You won’t succeed.
Shame on you! You’ve made people feel scared of
Our country with all
Your sexist crimes.
Lastly Darling, don’t forget that
I make this world whole every bit as you do;
I am your
Mother, sister, lover, stranger, and friend,
A person you can’t avoid knowing.

Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
