OLO SHOI

A child as she is born on this planet, takes birth with her eyes full of dreams, head full of imaginations and a bright smile than can soften any heart. Alas! This smile doesn't last long. It is continuously pestered under the orthdox and narrow minded society. This society teaches us how to sever the wings of a girl and use those feathers to build a successful man. She is not allowed to follow her passion, she is not allowed to work in night shifts, she is not allowed to wear anything that she likes. Oh dear, she is not allowed to live. Marriage is never an option for a woman, it is something without which a woman is incomplete, without a man a woman is incomplete. She is not even allowed to ask the question why. All she gets is marital rape and domestic violence in name of love. However, she still dreams with her tired eyes. She dreams of that parallel universe where Draupadi was never assaulted, where Sita did'nt have to give "agnipariksha" to prove her worth, where she will be respected as much as any other Goddess, where the mind will be without fear and head will be held high. She urges us, women to rise like a phoenix from the ashes of it's past. As wild as the fire, unfraid like the earth, untamed like the air and as strong as water. To rise and succeed beyond limitations and to be unbeatable
