The Girl in Orange ( painting) sold to an unknown buyer , via a small gallery in Bangalore /this painting was done in honour of the many little girls whose parents sell them into trades best not discussed in decent places of commerce, or decent blogs of decent families. But the painting brought me the silent voices of little girls, even women in our technically brilliant nation of forward women who can fight for their rights, of which I count myself one, so please bear with me as I talk of village and other parents who still sell their baby girls, as slaves of a kind – or
even kill them.
I cannot imagine being kicked in my face because I do not have legitimacy, or am not deserving of my own given rights…
All the education invested in us, is undeserving if we will not, by choice, impact at least one other person, in our life time.
…If you have the power to stop a bunch of parents from hurting their child or themselves, please try to talk to them.
