Director Statement

No matter how advanced society has become and how educated people have become, the attitude of some individuals towards society remains unchanged. Even in today's world, there are those who will go to any lengths to satisfy their own selfish desires and enhance societal prestige, often at the expense of others. This is evident in their resorting to occult practices that cause harm to themselves and others.
While movies and magazines portray women as powerful and inspirational figures, the reality in this male-dominated culture is that women still struggle to establish their rightful place, which is deeply disheartening. Despite living in a modern society, the prevailing ideology remains stagnant.
Does the birth of a woman hold no value? How many years more must she spend in futile efforts to prove her existence? These questions are raised in a short film that aims to shed light on this issue.
The issue of women and girl child killings is a harsh reality that occurs every year. It is not an exaggerated or fictional concept, but a sad truth that needs attention and awareness.
We would like to draw your attention to a report by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), which highlights the alarming number of approximately 4.6 crore females missing in India due to son preference, source:

It is disheartening to witness such atrocities taking place in the 21st century.
By portraying the harsh reality, we aimed to create awareness and provoke thought, in the hopes of inspiring change.
Our objective is to encourage women to take action before it is too late.
In the climactic scene of the film, we have chosen to include a song dedicated to the protagonist, Suman. The lyrics of this song emphasize the inherent strength and power within every woman. It conveys the message that women are like goddesses, specifically referencing Adi Shakti, and it is crucial for them to recognize and harness their inner power.
The song emphasizes the need for women to confront and combat the sick mentality that perpetuates crimes against them. It serves as a rallying cry, urging women to fight against the prevailing mindset and take charge of their own lives.
Furthermore, the title indirectly appeals to all mothers, reminding them not to waste (Vyarth) their precious lives by letting such crimes go unaddressed. It calls for a collective effort to ensure a safer and more secure environment for all.
