Awakening


TheAwakening recent gang rape incident in Delhi was so unprecedented in its brutality and inhumanity that it has shaken up the entire country. Also the fact that the victim was a 23year old medical student traveling in a bus hits hard as the victim could’ve been any girl in Delhi.

The mere thought of the incident  makes me shudder. Suddenly the city I’ve always called home has become so scary that my very existence here is threatened. Delhi winters usually made me inherently happy but this time I can’t shake off the gloomy feeling that has taken a deep seat within me.

City of Djinns is stained with her blood and the air echoes with her cries for justice. But her sad demise has awakened the nation. Her voice now reverberates with the voice and fury of the entire nation that has taken to the streets and cannot be silenced. But let’s see when we can get through the callous attitudes of the politicians and policemen.

This painting is my small tribute to the innocent brave girl!! A martyr!! If only this incident could be undone…

A dreamer. An intellectual, spoiled by the world of literature trying to find sanity through traveling and expression through Visual Art and writing! Hope you like my expressions on this blog!!
