They Dehumanise Women Because They Can

They Dehumanise Women Because They Can

Sometime last year I went for a late night show with my 18-year-old and forgot one cardinal rule I have always followed while going out after dusk though it is a rare occurrence. Dress down. Wear a big shawl that hides the fact that though 47, I am a woman still. No flashy neck or […]






While The Soap Queens Gently Weep

While The Soap Queens Gently Weep

I caught a glimpse of a serial on television the other day. This was the scene – a blind wife throws herself at the husband’s feet begging to be allowed to stay with him. Her disability is seen as a major hindrance that prevents her from doing her wifely duties and chores. Well-wishers urge the […]






Why There Can Be No Justice For Jisha

Why There Can Be No Justice For Jisha

Remember the Dalit girl being dragged through the streets of Muktsar? And Pushpa and Murti, the Dalit teenaged girls in Badaun in 2014 whose rape and hanging was referred to by the shocked Western media as India’s Mango tree case? A case that was dismissed by CBI director Ranjit Sinha with this statement, “Our probe […]






Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

Why I Shun ‘Women Only’ Travel Services

I am a tad upset. I have just read about a hotel chain which is soon launching women-only hotels. I know I should be kicked about it, as I often travel solo, but I am not. Traditionally, our streets, roadside restaurants, public parks, pan- cigarette tapris have been a male bastion. While women remained housebound,  men traversed […]






Declare A Ceasefire In Your Own Heart

Declare A Ceasefire In Your Own Heart

Just heard that a young woman who had been raped and set on fire was left to die by the roadside just around the corner from where I live a few days back. She was found by a neighbour’s dog who was out for a walk. The police whisked her away and there has been […]






Whose Daughter?

Whose Daughter?

“This incident was a storm which came and went. And what was there before it, and what is left behind after it, this is what we need to see.”  (Nirbhaya’s father) This is the parting message that Leslee Udwin’s film ‘India’s Daughter’ closes with. And this is what the film proposes to do. To see whether […]






Dia Mirza: Repression Causes Gender Violence

Dia Mirza: Repression Causes Gender Violence

Just a few days before December 16, the second anniversary of the Nirbhaya tragedy, actor, producer and activist Dia Mirza was in town. The Uber rape case was on her mind, as were the sexual crimes against young girls in Bengaluru’s schools. She said, “What kind of man rapes a woman… a little girl? This […]






Why We Must Never Forget

Why We Must Never Forget

I’ve been asking myself this question for quite some time now.  The gang rape in Delhi served to make it more urgent.  “Where is our country headed ?”  I’m sure lots of other people too, pretty much like me, are echoing the despair that one feels within oneself.  Our country is steeped in a shroud […]






Hope..Fear

Hope..Fear

A fear lurks At the back of my mind What if…. What if…. our prayers crash against the stone-dead walls. and come back unheard? What then…. Another Nirbhaya? Another outcry? To wake up the corpse of This system? Let’s hope not…. Let’s hope…… They have felt our pain They have felt her pain in their heart.. […]






Home By Seven

Home By Seven

            I always wondered what would be like to be a boy and to be in a world, where the freedom and choices seemed to be limitless. Where the deadline-free timings left one free to do whatever one wished at all kinds of crazy hours. Where the clothes one wore or […]






One More Draupadi

One More Draupadi

Once again Draupadi finds herself Face to Face With Dushasanas…! That still prowl in this land, With new faces and new names! (But with same perverted minds) ……………   Once again She finds herself Abandoned by The Bhishmas Sitting on high thrones Wringing their hands In impotent silence! …………………………….. Once again, She finds herself A […]






The Question of Safety

The Question of Safety

Long minutes, maybe a few hours were spent this week in the heart of a police station where I for the first time  witnessed the daily workings of a place we usually associate with dark images of intimidation, apathy and incompetence, especially if you are a woman with a complaint. This one was surprisingly..for want […]
