Indian Cinema Struggles

Decade after decade I’ve seen female actors being tossed out and the male actors being recycled for the same old characters over and over again and it has  gotten to a point where I am absolutely done.

In this video I simply describe what I want to see in the cinema. There has been change but not to the extent where change is apparent.

Just Hide

IMG_2874Hide your feminity,
it is for your own safety.

Hide your ambitions,
it is for your own happiness.

Hide your feelings,
it is for you own good.

Hide your desires,
it is for your own reputation.

Just hide who you are,
so you will belong.

I’ve been told to hide too many times.
Every time I stepped out I only got stronger.
But I still hide because I think I must.
It is a journey and I’ll get there.

 

 

The Lesbian Bit

When you are a girl out late at night, you employ every trick available to avoid creeps and weird guys but they all fail and you end up with the lesbian bit.

You know where you and girl-friends say that you are together, as in dating. I am not saying that is always a bit (because yes lesbians do go out on Saturday nights)  but some girls find the need to say that they are lesbians to fend off men. Doesn’t this scare you? The insistence and persistence of men who only seek ladies who seem vulnerable at a bar. By vulnerable let me clarify that these women out without the presence of a man by their side.

The persistence of men who only seek ladies who seem vulnerable at a bar. By vulnerable let me clarify that these women out without the presence of a man by their side. Why does a single girl mark that she is available? Why does no never mean no?
