We can make the impossible possible if only we want it.

In some parts of the world impossible dreams came true. But in many parts of the world, women are still treated as slaves and sex objects. Women work much more than men but they are paid less. It’s an old film on women’s oppression. Times are gone, but women’s oppression are not gone.

Men kill women for dowry and sons in India!

Woman and her baby daughter were burned alive by her husband and in-laws for dowry and a son.

A 25-year-old BTech graduate Pravartika Gupta and her baby daughter were allegedly burnt alive by her husband and in-laws at Delhi’s Sarojini Nagar area. In a country where 8,000 women are killed each year over dowry and rapes occur rampantly everyday, the case serves to further highlight India’s chilling attitude towards its women. [Read more...]

”As religion declines, we are becoming ever more civilized”.

Evolutionary science shows we do not need religion to have order and even courtesy in relationships. True. But the statement like ‘male generally provides protection and food. Male and female have very different genetic interests. Male persuades lots of female to mate with him. Female persuades one male to be loyal and faithful to her and to provide for economic upbringing of her offspring’ sounds outdated. Is it to justify patriarchy?

Some female leaders!

Women are not inherently passive or peaceful. - Robin Morgan

Female political leaders are not different from male political leaders in South Asia. Their acts are not less misogynistic than male leaders. Like male leaders they have no agenda to change patriarchal structure of society, or to get rid of anti-women laws, or to fight women-hating traditions. Like male leaders they believe in religion and patriarchy. Their own misogyny lowers themselves to the level of male leaders. They are no less cruel, barbaric, unethical, inhumane than men. Obviously, they believe in their own right to free expression but do not believe in their opponent’s right to free expression. [Read more...]

How does it feel!

As if it was me, not Felix Baumgartner. As if I jumped from space. As if it was me who floated for two hours in a capsule towed by an enormous helium balloon before leaping from 128,000ft – almost four times the height of a cruising passenger airline. I was feeling cold, I had fear that the speed I fell at would send me into an uncontrollable spin and the exposure to vacuum would literally cause my blood to boil. I was worried that my space suit could tear and that the low pressure in the stratosphere could cause my lung and blood circulation problems. Suddenly something happened. I blew my fears away. I forgot all the problems. I started feeling like a bird. I was flying in my dreams. It was like a dream until I landed on Earth.
