Men were afraid, read their hidden potent;
Being dangerous to their small ego,
Women have been hushed to meet their intent.
They dread that poet; whose words pierce their mind;
Fearing for whom and when, she ink her thoughts;

Damini was an outcast but an orator of full might;
She was burnt in name of a witch, and others fell quiet.
Latika was beautiful but an orphan,

And was silenced behind red lights.

Most others were calm and of lesser menace;
accepted patriarch’s trick as their fate;
and were kept at home to decorate.

Big Boss 16’s notorious host, Salman Khan and the Colors Channel has welcomed with open arms filmmaker and comedian Sajid Khan, who’s accused of sexual abuse by not one, two or three, but nine women to date, on the show.
Make no mistake, Sajid Khan’s participation is the digital equivalent of flashing his dick to the world, especially to his victims.
Saloni Chopra, film journalist, recalls her horrific hiring interview with Sajid, and much more, in this piece. Here’s a sample of completely unrelated questions that Sajid asked her.
