I happened to see a photo that left me speechless: It was that of a woman in tatters and no hands at all being helped by her son with a spoon for eating. It was so very touching.

13th March:  I was shocked to see the main headlines of TOI which read ‘Another working woman gangraped in Gurgaon’.. It’s hardly some 4days after Women’s Day.  The tall claims that leaders speak for women safety in Delhi and the actual status  of safety for women in this crime capital do not match.  Skewed sex ratio, harassment due to dowry, insecure working environment, enslavement -in the form of ignorance, lack of education, repeated childbirths,physical abuse- with all these, where are you going Woman? Quo vadis?
