    1.Dangerous Health bill.
    2.Environment destruction happening in the name of development.
    3.Mobocracy replacing democracy and Republic state.
    4.The blatant disregard for Judiciary.
    5.Reduced autonomy of the state. Instead of decentralizing as it should be progress we are heading for a dictatorial government.
    None of the channels ever talk about it, even when they do they are not hitting the nail on the head, or bringing the issues up.

    Excellent point Parwati – all those things need to be attended to as well.

  3. Endorseable thoughts Kalpana Ji. You have called a spade a spade.

    I didn’t know about this but I can’t say it’s terribly surprising given the patriarchy, albeit jumping into a fire carries it to quite to the extreme. I am so tired of the patriarchy. We must burn (pun intended) it all down!

    Even while making an argument, you create a vivid and emotional scene. I thought that the wo sides of this piece wove together well.

    I am not familiar with the film but I appreciate your critique and agree with you wholeheartedly. Priorities are certainly not in order–not there, not anywhere, when it comes to women.

    Ridiculous isn’t it? People seemed to have missed the point completely. The director as well as his detractors seemed to be caught in quite a pointless discussion. Where’s the point of glorifying or even analysing what or why a queen did something centuries ago? We can hardly put ourselves in the mindspace that governed men and women of those times. Your passion comes through strongly through the questions you raise.

What's your reaction - I'd love to hear - do comment.
