Today women of Afghanistan are in grave danger and they are battling for their lives, which is under the control of Taliban.
After 20 years of struggle, the USA has finally left Afghanistan in a state of turmoil. The capital city, Kabul, has fallen into the hands of the Taliban, the extremist group.
Lack of resistance from Afghan forces, and little international pressure has intensified their cruelty. Taliban have conquered major cities of Afghanistan which includes Kandhahar, Herat and Kabul.
Women in Afghanistan are afraid to live back in the repressive past, where women’s voices were silenced and oppressed.The entire world is watching, yet there is nothing anybody can do but pray.To pray for Afghanistan’s women, for our Afghan sisters.
Women empowerment, which was one of the primary goals in the country, has crumbled in just 72 hours due to the emergence of Taliban. The UN’s silence on the circumstance casts doubt on the 76-year-old organization. Neither the G7 nations nor the UN Security Council have shown any concern for these women.
The silence of the world leaders is a slap on the face of humanity. What about the dreams of women who wish to become surgeons, teachers, or astronauts in the future. But their dreams will be crushed. They will be imprisoned for the rest of their lives.
How can we expect these women to have a dignified life in a country where the such administration has caused turmoil among residents. While forcing them to abandon their current lives and seek shelter in other countries?
Taliban’s conquer of Kabul serves as a stark warning of what lies ahead, as well as a harsh reminder of the Taliban’s brutal 1996–2001 regime. When, women were tormented , denied employment and education. Women were forced to wear the Burqa, and they were prohibited from leaving the house without a male guardian.
Amid Taliban’s claims of changed attitude towards women, the Taliban’s actions and recent efforts to enslave thousands of women show the exact contrary.
There are already hints that the Taliban have begun to reimpose the old rule in certain regions.Women in several areas have been advised not to leave the house without being accompanied by a male guardian.
With every second, the dark shadow of the extremists is taking over the nation. Sitting here, we can only feel their plight and helplessness. The ones who managed to flee and reached India are in shock of their friends and families who are left behind. This horrific incident will be remembered as a scar on mankind since the entire world is aware of what is happening to these Afghan women, yet their pleas go unheard.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
