Bell bajao! Because you can make a difference.
Enough has been said about violence everywhere. And violence of any kind. Whether be against women in the
incident, in Kashmir through militant action, in Turkey through police brutalities or
in Karnataka through political manipulations. I have been thinking a lot about
it, especially each time I read a harrowing story in the newspaper or watch a
bloody saga on the TV. Each time I find my eyes swollen with tears or my heart
in pain, I ask myself if I am taking the easy route out by just sitting in my
living room and venting my emotions.
Should I step out there and do what it needs to stop this violence? Should I take part in the actions against the violence and then earn myself the right to even cry over it? Yes, I should, ideally. But will I be much good at it? Am I somebody who will be good at mobilizing people on the streets, visiting slums and educating women on their rights, talking to school children and telling them the difference between right touch / wrong touch or marching against police / political exploitation rampant everywhere?
