We protest and march with candles in our hands, anger in our heart and hope in our eyes. We ‘like’ and ‘retweet’ messages against rape online. We watch documentaries based on these issues and cringe. BUT. Has anything changed? No. Rape is as common in India today as it used to be a few years ago. And in this video, this young girl presents a stand-up act on this controversial topic. Will it make you laugh or will it make you feel worse? Watch and find out.
India mein ladkiyan do categories ki hoti hain – one is a slut and one is a whore.
“She refused to sleep with me, man. What a whore!”
“Bro, you know who she slept with? Me! What a slut, man!”
If you’re a guy, I am sure you have either said or heard one of these sentences from at least one of your friends. If not, I guess you only hang out with women.
In the video, Vasundhara Kaul questions the hypocrisy of the Indian society. And the way she puts it into words, is commendable. So girls, any idea when we’ll celebrate Republic day and NOT #RapePublicDay on 26th January?
