a woman...a being...and everything in between
Your words evoke a heart wrenching feeling... Its time people move from mere lip-sympathy and actually stand up to injustice.
It is very important, Reshma, when laws of land are lame and toothless,and beats abound, We, the people can not keep mum.
I know the inexplicable feeling of guilt and shame that floods a harassed girl in India, as though she was somehow responsible for this happening to her. And the lack of any real support from society. Lame helping hands is all that any of us provides to victims in our country.An anguished cry for help... beautiful!
Real support is surely lacking, some fake sympathy, some blaming fingers, and eventually apathy is all what a victim gets in return.Thanks for reading!
Powerful images of Red and emotions!
Wow...those are some mighty images you created with your words! kudos..
Thanks Ma'am, I wish these words could make any real difference.
powerful strong emotions . Nice one .
Powerful imagery.... hard hitting!
Thank you so much!
Burning words-i can feel the heat.How COULD the onlookers just watch & do nothing?
It is very easy to find faults with systems, politics, police. But what about us! Do we know our responsibility?
Ardent imaginations...felt as if it was written as if in part of anger and part frustration...!!!
As a woman, as a citizen, I do feel frustrated the way such cases are handled by public and by the government.
Glowing take on 'Red'!
Thanks you, Sir!
