After what i have been reading a past few days, i have come to a conclusion, regardless of all the proofs / evidences, people will still BLAME THE WOMAN!😥
So sad to be living in a society where women are bound to not even a utter a word even after getting tortured in every possible way and men get away with everything because ‘Men will be Men’. With every passing day, i see so many examples of verbal/ sexual/ emotional/ domestic abuse in my social circle/ colleagues/ family/ patients that makes me want to just stay single for the rest of my life.
I know girls who have been tortured in every possible way and asked for their family’s support but they said ‘no matter what, apna ghar nai chhorna and admi aise he hotey hain’
I am so so so disturbed today that I cannot even type how i am feeling right now. All i can request is, all women who are reading this post, please raise your boys well and teach them how to respect girls. Jo ek dafa hath utha sakta hai, wo dobara bhe uthayega.
Instead of getting worried for your daughter’s jahaiz, invest in her studies so that she is financially independent. Don’t try to take her right of ‘khulla’ away from her nikkahnama. And most importantly, LISTEN TO HER.
It’s high time people should realise ‘’A woman isn’t a punching bag for a man! You hit a woman once but that scar stays on her soul for the rest of her life!
P.S Hitting a woman explains how weak of a man you truly are!
“There was this one project that I did in collaboration with an Indian filmmaker who made a film of his grandmother and her story of how she crossed the border to get to India from Pakistan. It resonated with me because I have heard my khala tell me the story of how she crossed the border to get to Pakistan from India.
There were so many parts where I felt that deep hurt that every family has, everyone has that story, that little connection. In the illustration, her dupatta is the landscape and you’ve got Nehru on one side and Quaid-e-Azam on the other, plus trains crossing and people walking on foot to get across the border. All these things become a part of our lives and I wanted to express that.
And when that came out I got a video from his grandmother and she was thanking me and it kind of brought me to tears. I felt that in telling her story, we gave dignity to her life, to what she had to go through, and a lot of other people also had to go through. It gave me back so much in that way.” - Sana Nasir on how art has transformative power.
