I love my students who are participating in the Fear and Gender workshop. They are courageous and gorgeous young women with a lot of fire in their belly's specially to stand up for their rights in this fast changing India. India is changing but not the right way for our young women.
I am sure that all of you have seen the news that young women were beaten up in a pub and the pub was vandalized by "Moral police" in Mangalore town of India. These so called "Moral Police" were objecting to the women being in the pubs period. This is there way of protesting against the moral degradation of Indian values in young women. I as an Indian woman, I am ashamed to say that we have these so called "Moral Police" in India are all men!
India is celebrating her 60th Republic Day today, the day when India adopted her constitution and therefore a symbol of her emancipation.......... but it will be a long time before she becomes free of bigotry and mindless prejudices. Good job all of you. Love you
