With my disturbed mind, I think..

Here I am, celebrating colours of Navratri; all geared up enjoying every bit of the festive season. There is positivity around, enthusiasm filled in the air.

Dandiya, Garba, Shopping, Food – indulging in all.

Thinking about the long weekend ahead while sipping my morning coffee, I take the newspaper – browsing through the advertisements that supress the news.

And then I read..

  • A young girl brutally murdered.
  • A married woman boycotted, because she refused the V test
  • A group of ladies, overruling the SC order and restricting entry of girls in Sabarimala temple.
  • A serial killer confessing of raping minor girls.

And then I think to myself..

Which is the REAL society we live in? The one that i see everyday, or the one where such incidents happen?

On one side, we are celebrating the arrival of Goddess Durga, and on the other hand, we are torturing our own Durgas and Kalis.

What’s wrong? The people, the customs, the social rules or the narrow mentality? Can #metoo campaign bring justice to the trauma women would have gone through? Or will it be buried under the influence of power?

And what can i do? Is there any way I can contribute to change this? Or I will just remain just reader, a sympathy giver?

Speechless.

The word that best describes me is “Dreamer”. I dream a lot and I believe in fulfilling my dreams. My dreams vary from eating Pani Puri at a stall to becoming an Entrepreneur and I love all my dreams. I always want to be the best in whatever I do whether it’s professional, social or personal because one of my dreams is to be “different” from rest of the crowd. I love all the roles I play in my life and enjoy being a loving wife, a responsible daughter, a caring sister and a friendly companion. I sometimes become poetic as well I believe life is an opportunity to unfold our hidden talents, its a journey towards fulfillment!
