There’s something powerful about this image. The angry young man demanding silence, a harried looking woman almost in tears. I shot this during a recent trip to Dilli Haat. It’s a still from a street play on female literacy.
It’s sad to realize that there still are people, especially in rural areas, who see no reason to educate their daughters. After all, they’re just going to get married and look after the home.
I found another startling fact recently. One that cuts across the rural and urban divide. That of stress levels. According to a recent Nielsen survey, Indian women feel the most stress – about 87% of Indian women are stressed all the time. Mind-boggling, isn’t it?
I can only be go down on my knees and thank God for all his blessings and grace in my life.
