Incidents as such no matter

Incidents as such no matter where they happen is really sad and leaves me helpless as I can not do much for it anyways. It is mostly our culture that make our life far more difficult is what I conclude at times but at the same time it is the element of that very culture that makes our life colorful. Yet again I am confused and confusion at times is required.

You can!

Dear friend,

By deeming it fit to share this story, you have taken the very first step in the right direction. I am glad too that the Indian Government recognizes such practices as illegal. Much as Culture is very important, we must stand up against practices that drags human dignity in the mud. You can use your voice to propagate positive cultural practices, and at the same time speak up against demeaning practices. You have begun the walk and work o creating positive change in a very empowering manner for yourself and your community. Keep speaking and sharing, change is inevitable for as much as you don't stop. I wish you the very best as you stand up for yourself and the many women who are disadvantaged in your community, especially those who are victims of such callous cultural practices. Step out and reach out because you can!

Thoughtfully,

Olanike Olugboji
