iPhone : I accept the challenge to step out of the shadows I have been gaslighted into. I accept the challenge to live my life as a complete person.

#ChallengeAccepted

iPhone : I accept the challenge to recognize the violence inherent in the subtext of my life as I wade through the quicksand of internalized oppression.

I accept the challenge to liberate my suppressed voice & articulate violative behaviours that were hitherto cloaked under ‘compromise.’

Twitter Web App : 90% of the abusers are known to the child or are in a position of trust and responsibility. You can prevent it. #BeARakshin #MakeHomeASafeSpace

iPhone : I love doing theatre because it doesn’t stay. You set up, you perform and then you tear down the set and wipe off the makeup and roll up the costume, untill next time. You’re in the moment and then it is over. And then you start again.

iPhone : Someone told me I live in an alternate world. Maybe I don’t live in an alternate world. Maybe I am just trying to make this world livable.

iPhone : We've made over 3000 Homes Safe during the Lockdown. Please support us to reach out to more and Prevent Child Sexual Abuse. Donate now now now <3

Twitter Web App : Have you ever thought about how cooperation is better than domination? #BorrowedThoughts

Twitter Web App : Ready to tackle a busy #Sunday with my Sakshi team and a cup of ginger tea (with kaali mirch, of course!) ♥️ #hustle

Twitter Web App : Have you ever thought about why it takes four generations to heal one act of violence? #BorrowedThoughts

iPhone : Adultism causes children to doubt themselves. These limitations may come in the formof abuse but the child has no sense of self and no idea of boundaries. The way forward is to listen to children and create a nurturing environment where they can thrive.

iPhone : i personally think cinderella should have lived a happy life with all her animal friends rather than settle for a man who had her try on a shoe because he didn’t recognize her without makeup

iPhone : भय का इज़हार मत करो , उसकी बू सूंघ कर सियार आ जाते है इर्द गिर्द ।

लड़खड़ा के भी ना कहो लड़खड़ा गए है हम । गिंध सौ फ़ूट की ऊँचाई से भी चाल भांप लेते हैं ।

iPhone : Someone asked “Is your home safe?”
This is a deep, layered question. My experience of a safe space changes with the shifting power dynamics between who I am sharing the space with. I guess, “Safe” cannot be a given. We need to work on making a space safe on an everyday basis.
