Most of the women feel empowered because of the family or friends. I am one of those who always got equal if not more support in life in comparison to my brother. But at the same time, when I travel or go out after sunset then I have to keep my…

Wordlessly Wednesday – Reason

Wordlessly Wednesday – Reason

There are some rituals people follow as they had seen their elders doing but they don’t know what is the meaning, reason behind.

Now the question is…… Is this a privilege for women to carry “Kalash”? Or They have to do this as a duty because they are women? Or…

Shabari

We were exploring the other side of Tungabhadra river in Hampi. We were visiting some historical places on that side and I had spotted this lady sitting in front of  Pampa Sarovar/pond (Which is practically in the middle of nowhere) selling fruits. There were only 4-5 people in the temple & Sarovar area. When I crossed her she asked me to buy some fruits from her, so as a curtsy I bought something from her. When I asked her name,…
