#SayNotoWar…The Cost Of War Is Too High

Trolling on social media is war. War can be anywhere. Just that lives are not lost, but it can do more harm than just kill once.

Trolls. Inspiring speeches. Promises. But who is hit hardest by war?.. It is the women!

We’ve had enough trollers! You don’t have any right to joke about an army soldier’s wife let alone any woman.

Do you even know how war looks like? Are you a woman?

War is never a pleasant thing; whether be it in defence, to attack, to kill or to protect; whatever the reason or the ‘cause’ may be. And believe it or not, women are the hardest hit by war. The cost they pay is incomparable to what anyone else pays.

Trolling on social media is war. War can be anywhere. Just that lives are not lost, but it can do more harm than just kill once. Instigation comes first. Reactions quickly follow. and we Indians are just emotional at everything. At least #SayNotoWar, the trending social media tag is a ray of hope amidst all the drama staged by the political leaders and the sensationalizing done by the media that is stooping too low to glorify war.

War heroes are REAL heroes. But what did they lose? Their precious LIFE. Who’s affected by it? The martyr’s wife? Mother? Daughter? Son? In-laws? Friends? Family?… This list is endless. But we cannot help but notice that it is the women in his family who lose the most. He is glorified by the media and the nation. Celebrated as a martyr. And Bollywood is just waiting to cash in on the tragedy- national and personal ones.

All failing to acknowledge the pain the women go through. It is real. And it can be hurting especially when she sees how everyone is banking on the tragedy. It is she who has to heal and get over the loss. It is she who has to fight her everyday life as a woman and now as a widow or a child without a father. Glorifying won’t help them fight their daily lives, but may just help them to heal.

So trollers don’t poke your nose into war. It is serious business.

Never miss real stories from India's women.
