I am a woman in Indian society and I am not yet free...

// I am a Hindu, a Muslim, a Christian, a Buddhist, a theist and an atheist. I am 20, 30, 40 and 50. I am single, married, divorced and half the country. I am a mother, a daughter, a wife and a prostitute. I am a stereotype, a trophy and a prisoner of patriarchy. I am a woman in Indian society and I am not yet free. // - Kalki Koechlin at India Today Conclave (link)

Please watch this passionate and touching poem written and enacted brilliantly by Kalki at India Today Conclave (link):


This inspired emotions similar to what I experienced when I watched Queen (link) and Taslima Nasreen's interview (link). There is always hope...
