Dear Son

What did we do wrong? We brought you up to be a nice boy.We gave you morals and values.
As a child you always came first in class, your mother used to prepare your favourite dishes. Your sister was not that good in studies but always helped around the house.
You were a bit naughty but that’s okay. Boys are a little naughty. Always leaving your clothes strewn around, your mother and sister were forever picking up after you. But you were not a bad boy.
Remember, you beat up that boy when you were in class XI because he teased your sister on the way back from school? You also got a cut on your cheek but we were proud of you.
What happened? Your poor mother is sick with worry, she is sure there is some story behind this.
When we saw your face on that video we could not believe it!
Please tell me it is not you tearing the clothes off that girl. Please tell me its not you, smiling, as he molests a young girl on the street. Please tell me I have not failed as a parent , as a father! Please tell me What did we do wrong
An Anguished father

My parents were almost killed fighting for their ideals and what they stand for. After 8 long years of fight, we finally won and justice was delivered to us and to that stranger with whom it all began.

If there’s anything I’ve learnt from my family, it is to stay true to who you are and what you believe in, rather die in a battle than choosing to run away from it and follow your heart along with your brain instead of choosing either extreme.

Justice for Women is not a selfless deed but a selfish act on my part to fight for My Rights and ensure my safety and protection. It is personal to me, what is it to you?

You don’t need to be a victim or their kin to realize why Women’s Rights are important. We’re as much part of this society as children, senior people, politicians or workers, if not more. I don’t have to get into a detailed report on contribution of women to this world to prove our value and importance.

  1. I am simply here to raise these question that you need to discuss with yourself.
  2. Why should you support this cause? What difference would it make to Your life?
  3. Why should this issue be so relevant and higher up in the hierarchy of priorities for you as well as our Government to resolve?

I shall continue to fight for it for as long as I can. If any of you are willing to be a part of this initiative, please connect with me through our official accounts. Hoping to hear from you soon.
