Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
Sexual exploitation of women in the entertainment industry is unbridled but as the times are changing, many victims of sexual exploitation come out to get justice, as this shows.
Every time when a woman from the entertainment industry spoke about sexual exploitation, many, often those unaware of such exploitation, would shut her down immediately by saying “she’s doing it for attention”? But as more and more women speak up, and as the media shine a light on these issues like never before, the women from the entertainment industry have begun to come out bravely to address the violence and the courts have been refusing to let go the sexual predators without proper serving of justice to the victims.
This video that tells the story of a woman exploited by the casting director Ravindranath Ghosh, who rapes, takes photos of her, and continues to exploit her for years blackmailing her with the photos he had taken. The woman ends up pregnant, and despite changing jobs, taking the matters to the court where the man is found guilty and put into prison, he continues to threaten her from jail, sending photos of her to her husband, who eventually leaves her, and her child.
In the entertainment industry, casting couch and other such sexual exploitation is so rampant that many aspiring women are left with no choice. Even if they decide to leave, just like the story of the women in the video did, the evil follows them in the form of blackmails, threats, harassment, etc.
This condemnable incident shouldn’t stand alone.
More such stories should be brought to the light by the media, so these criminals don’t escape justice. These powerful sexual predators should be named and shamed for satisfying their thirst of sexually exploiting so many aspiring artists, and should be dragged to the court. Their dignity should be stripped off their face. Every victim should get the justice they deserve. And every sexual predator should suffocate in the justice system for exploiting the women.

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
