The lesser she exposes, the more respected she’ll be. Because girls from good families don't show skin. Which goes to say that girls who show skin - deserve it? And so days after we killed the men that raped India’s Daughter, we discovered there wasn’t just one of her. No, you may call her ‘fearless’ with pride but I guess it’s time you realize that we’re all, unfortunately, daughters of a nation that only wants fearless daughters in homes outside of their own. We take part in candle marches for someone else’s daughter and yet we cage our own.
Nirbhaya. Haryanas Nirbhaya. Delhis Nirbhaya. North India's Nirbhaya. Bangalors Nirbhaya. Mumbais Nirbhaya. You say it with so much pride, but what once felt like a salute to her now feels like a slap in my face. Her name was Jyoti.. but I understand, it’s my fault. It’s our fault for being born into a body with breasts & a vagina — both of which solely accordingly to you exist for pleasure. Your pleasure, my shame?
I understand, that you’re going to go to the furthest of your powers to take away her rights because you’re petrified of her strengths — because you don't genuinely believe that the liberation & education of women is what will be the growth of our country, no, our women are sacred, kept safely behind walls, just like our goddess. I understand that this isn’t the end, this is just the beginning. And it breaks my heart to see that a lot more daughters in every corner of our country are going to end up ‘fearless’, if you don’t understand this too.
