Women still fighting to enter a temple
Women being mocked at #MeToo
A 16-year-old rape victim denied admission in a school as if its her fault
Still the birth of a girl child being lamented upon
Still the girls/women asked to dress up and behave “properly” to avoid attention
Still marriage being seen as the salvation for any girl
Still so many women being ill treated at their marital home
Still many parents referring to their daughters as “paraya dhan”
And many, many more things to say..
And yet irony is that Devi is worshiped with fanfare
Whereas women still fighting for their love, respect and care..
