New submission from Devika

Today, I was followed by an Innova that had an orange flag on it – the one with a lotus embossed on all that orange. Yup, that’s right – the one that’s recently all over the place. My regular walk from the metro station to work – in broad daylight. They stopped the car right … Continued

‘Why would this girl lie? After all she is taking the blame on herself’, said the police officer to the criminal infront of me. SPEAK UP DELHI It was a Saturday afternoon I had lunch with a friend in Gurgaon before I decided to head home. The metro for those who do not take it … Continued

New submission from Gopika

New submission from Sayan Mukherjee

Dear All We are all screaming for the blood of the perperators who have been accused in the recent gangrape case. Statuses abound advocating castration (yes, even my own) and harsh punishments for the animals who engaged in it. However, I personally believe that these will not serve.

React to Rape

We, as a society, don’t know how to react to rape. By using the pronoun ‘we’ I am holding our society to be at fault collectively, not a single man, woman or child spared.
