Age of Kali – This Morning in Chennai

This morning at Chennai Central Train Station there was a terror attack. So far one woman died and 14 people are injured. Two are critical. I was not at the train station at the time, but it is on my normal route when I travel out for village work. Today is May Day, so I …

Age of Kali – Hotel Relax? Not Really

Earlier today I was told that I should stop representing India as a terrible place for women. The rationale is simple. The more people like me speak out against things that are wrong with India the more it validates racists. It’s simple? If they didn’t have this to whinge about they would find something else …

A Voice for Me – 11 Signs you are a Feminist

I always thought there was one really clear cut sign that you are a feminist. Do you think women are equal to men apart from minor biological differencees and that women should be treated the same as men? If the answer is yes. You are a feminist. You may  fall to your knees and scream …

Age of Kali – Honour is Earned by How You Treat Those You Love

“We had to do it, there was no hope for them and we had to teach others not to fall in love. It would dilute the values. This is not like the city that is poisoned by the decadence of the West. We do not want that here. I have saved others from making this …

Age of Kali – A Blow For Freedom

Pakistan beat India at Cricket. This is a sport. A way for two groups of people to compete. At it’s core a man throws a ball and another hits it in order to score points. People support team A or team B and cheer appropriately. Then everyone goes home and is either sad or pleased …

Devyani Khobragrade – The Real Shame is Slavery

This is a storm in a tea cup story in the USA, but in India this was major news and the reaction of the Indian Government and the loudest voices is appalling. I wrote about what makes someone a fanatic, whether it be the sort of man who could callously order his starving soldiers to …

Age of Kali – Nirbhaya, 365 Days, Rape and India

 I love how the slymepit empathically (metaphorically) rape the #ftbullies. It’s not even a fair fight. It’s heroes vs zeros. – Anonymous I like the fact that the OP used “Empathic Rape” without any idea of what the word “Oxymoron” means. I am going to assume that this was said by someone who isn’t part …

Age of Kali – A Year On

I got this mail last year. It effectively asked me why I wasn’t willing to stand up and say something about the Indian rape. Why my blog was filled with the stories of women and indeed men who fought against the rape. Why not my story of the Indian Rape Riots and Protests? I had …

Age of Kali – Section 377

On Wednesday morning, Abhina dressed in her finest clothes. It was a big day for her. See, she’s a Transgender Activist. Some people called me one but I had to decline. I work with the Hijra. A traditional Indian Eunuch culture. I don’t pretend to understand a lot of trans culture, I just was a …
