Recently, a young woman who was a Raichur resident and an engineering student, was found dead in what appeared to be a suicide, but may actually be a brutal rape and murder.
Did she/any women deserve such cruel death? I wonder what was going on in the culprits mind when he/those were alongside him were committing such brutal crime. Wait a minute! It’s not just ‘a’ crime, it’s one crime after the other. Is raping and murdering an innocent girl so easy these days? Who do we blame? The parents who raised these men to grow up to be such hooligans or our education system which does not give much importance to teaching these important moral life lessons?
It’s all of our responsibility to bring justice to the young woman and her family who have faced such a grievous loss this day. We need to teach every culprit a lesson which will be a warning to anyone who even harbours a thought of hurting/harming/committing such crimes in the future.
I hope and pray these culprits are punished for their crime.
I request all of you to join in along with people of Raichur who are fighting for justice for this young woman’s death. Let’s all hope that no other girl goes through such situations. Let’s spread the word and ensure no young woman in harmed in this way!

Rajshri Deshpande, who played the fiery protagonist in Trial by Fire along with Abhay Deol speaks of her journey and her social work.
Rajshri Deshpande as the protagonist in ‘Trial by Fire’, the recent Netflix show has received raving reviews along with the show itself for its sensitive portrayal of the Uphaar Cinema Hall fire tragedy, 1997 and its aftermath.
The limited series is based on the book by the same name written by Neelam and Shekhar Krishnamoorthy, who lost both their children in the tragedy. We got an opportunity to interview Rajshri Deshpande who played Neelam Krishnamoorthy, the woman who has been relentlessly crusading in the court for holding the owners responsible for the sheer negligence.
Rajshri Deshpande is more than an actor. She is also a social warrior, the rare celebrity from the film industry who has also gone back to her roots to give to poverty struck farming villages in her native Marathwada, with her NGO Nabhangan Foundation. Of course a chance to speak with her one on one was a must!
“What is a woman’s job, Ramesh? Taking care of parents-in-law, husband, children, home and things at work—all at the same time? She isn’t God or a superhuman."
The arrays of workstations were occupied by people peering into their computer screens. The clicks of keyboard keys were punctuated by the occasional footsteps moving around to brainstorm or collaborate with colleagues in their cubicles. Most employees went about their tasks without looking at the person seated on either side of their workstation. Meenakshi was one of them.
The thirty-one-year-old marketing manager in a leading eCommerce company in India sat straight in her seat, her eyes on the screen, her fingers punching furiously into the keys. She was in a flow and wanted to finish the report while the thoughts and words were coming effortlessly into her mind.
Natu-Natu. The mellifluous ringtone interrupted her thoughts. She frowned at her mobile phone with half a mind to keep it ringing until she noticed the caller’s name on the screen, making her pick up the phone immediately.
