Living in the 21st century are we?
He said ” nothing would please me more than the blood that will flow through you when the first time we do it” were the words coming from the mouth of a guy for his beloved, the guy being a staunch believer of gender equality. Why is it that the purity of a girl is judged by the fact of her capability to bleed on her wedding night ? What if she was in love with a boy and sex is after all an act of love and further somehow it didn’t work for whatever may be the reason and they break up. In this situation does the girl has no right to start afresh? To fall in love again, to get married and start a family. Why all the ristrictions on girls when it comes to the talk of virginity. A girl is not a metal that you measure it’s purity on the basis of what other metal has it been mixed with and to what extent. A girl is a girl. She has as much feelings as anyone who is capable of having them .
I feel disgusted when the “oh so liberal people” of our society , act as goons when it comes to their lives. It’s fine to have sex with a girl who is your girlfriend but a wife well she has to be a virgin. Such hypocrisy burns me from within.
Of all the sort of mix and match of people that society is made of , hypocrites are the ones that sting me the most. A million of tinny glass pieces pierce me at a million different places when I read or hear or encounter such incidents that makes me want to curse God for creating women with such qualities which if once ended at certain circumstance might be the cause of life long pain and punishment to her.
If a girl gets raped it’s her fault she must have provoked the boy, if she is beaten well she deserves it she must have outraged her man, if she does not bleed on the wedding night she is labeled to be a harlot.
Of all the towns of all the continents of all the worlds that ever exist , from the past till the present , it’s only the female sex that had to go through trials in order to prove their chastity. These unnumbered labels that engulf the she sex are outrageous . it’s not before long that the last string of their patience will break and the thunderstorm that will follow might creates such huge tides that will engulf the world as a whole.
Rajasthan . The word itself holds the gravity of the rich history that supports it. from the time of kings and princesses to the time when democracy rules the land, India has seen many hues of changes. when i mean changes i am not just talking geographically or historically but also morally and ethically. in a male dominating society it is more than an achievement for a women to bloom. this is a universal truth. breaking all the social barriers that the society has put up, in a village of Tilonia , Rajasthan , under the title of ” Barefoot College” the work of an NGO is remarkable.
This blog post is a continuation of the previous one. i spent a day in Tilonia, Rajasthan, where this NGO has set up a college for making the ladies employable or rather self employed as i saw the nannies and grannies working their way through the circuits of solar panels ! they are truly going to be forever young. with a lot many things that caught me off guard , there was this one thing that made my heart smile. no matter the division of labor among the ladies they all were closely knitted together with the same cultural traditions of their region. from the long flowey lehnga to the covering of their heads with the dupatta. traditionally well dressed and beautifully accessorized , they bewitched me with their charm and charisma. meeting them i realized its never too late to start afresh and its not always good to fit inside the small clutches of our society , who knows that a misfit might grow where you least expect it to.
When a lady who breaks all the taboos and makes solar panels to lighten up her village with the gift of electricity, this is how calm and beautiful she looks .
The hands of a home maker and the same ones that are moulding the future of a nation. Beauty comes in all sorts of forms, you just got to keep looking!
The circuit of solar panels. Solar mama all set to light up her village. Isn’t that amazing ?
There were women from 24 different countries living together as a family being trained by the rajasthani ladies to make solar panels and go back to their countries and bring theit dark villages to light.
I was on a 5 day traveling tour. And covered the golden triangle of tourisim in india. That is Delhi , the capital of the country, Rajasthan which has it’s own rich history and cultur which is still shows in it’s residents and finally Agra where one of the seven wonders of the world is located – ” Taj Mahal” . This blog post covers the magnificent Taj Mahal , there will be two more similar posts on delhi and Rajasthan . As per now I shall let the lense of my camera speak.
This is one of the surah from the holy Qur’ Aan that has been ingraved on the outer walls of the Taj Mahal. With the magnificent and majestic body that this place holds and even though I was surrounded by hundreds of people who came to visit the place , I felt that the graves beneath this beautiful dome still kept the atmosphere that of calm and untouched .
Situated on the banks of river Yamuna ,the location enhances Taj Mahal’s beauty. The sunset is a sight to behold when you look at it standing on the marble floor of the Taj . Just awe struck.
A picture of Taj Mahal partially hidden by the trees , which are acting as a Viel to protect the beauty beneath.
Finally here is a full view picture of “Taj Mahal” . Ever have you encountered something that is not living and yet is capable of stopping your heart beat mid way . It was my first visit to the place and all I want to do now is re visit it and sit under the gardens outside . Perhaps read a bit? Or maybe just admire the beauty of the place that so aptly justifies as being the somnolent of love . It’s not on false notation that this monument is one of the seven wonders of the world.
