    Very powerful writing, Parul! As you spoke, I could feel the rage, the frustration, the helplessness at times when these barbaric acts are going unnoticed, rise in me too!

    Every word we put out there makes a difference. Keep writing!

    You know I’ve always said that when you are asking for rights, whom are you addressing it to? There always needs to be someone or something to which you need to address. And most importantly to ourselves.

    Honestly, some of the women I know themselves do not think that deserve to have the right for something. Now, what do you do with such people?

    That was nothing short of a battle-cry lady! And it is time women world over unite to fight for what is rightfully theirs! A Sanskrit saying goes well with what you say Yatra Nariyastu pujayante, ramanethe tatra devatah! Meaning the land where the woman is revered is the land where Gods abide.

    Just the sound or simply reading the terms give us goosebumps, I wonder what kind of mental and physical trauma women face in the world who actually experience it. It’s disgusting for people who carry out such barbaric acts and it’s a shame that women themselves are the ones who initiate them.

    You sure are making a lot of difference Parul! Love you!

    I remember when I first read about genital mutilation is young girls I couldn’t sleep for days. There was this haunting feeling always nagging in my mind that somewhere someone actually went through that ordeal. That people can be so barbaric. Breast Ironing I remember reading wad done by mothers to protect their daughters from sexual predator. It’s a sorry state. So much physical harm to women … why … just because they are of the opposite sex.

    Very powerful writing Parul.

    I would say why women and men should have separate rights. Shouldn’t they be same? As it is, being a woman is not a choice we made. Then why should we women need to fight for our rights. Atleast in such cases, I wish we follow US.

    Your words do make a difference, keep writing. Somewhere someone is getting inspiration to be courageous, words have power and yours are extremely powerful.

  10. It really is scary, all the incidences that happen which cannot be prevented because women don’t have adequate rights to protect themselves!

    Women’s rights are human rights. And it is so tragic that we have to fight for the basic rights. How a woman should lead her life is dictated by men… why should that happen? Despite advancements in every field, we have gone back to the dark ages when it comes to women and their rights!

    Rights! We need to be aware of them and we must fight for them. Sadly. Specially as women.

    […] a mum can’t pick her favorite child, it’s hard for me to share one post that’s my best but R for Rights was written with pain and that was the day I had first heard of breast ironing. Instead of best, it […]
