Teachers Day

Teacher’s day is just another day. There are students but no faculty. According to reports* the system of college education is India is worrisome and calls for urgent attention. Of the 2,426 posts for professors in central Universities, 1,301 are still vacant. In fact, in many colleges, there are no faculty members. The best faculty members and researchers prefer going abroad for various reasons that include better research facilities, elevated pay scales and many other benefits leading to a crisis in India’s University education system. The government has turned a blind eye towards this problem. The situation is dismal and there is a complete chaos that is fast spiraling out of bounds.

Finally, some sanity has prevailed and Sanitary napkins are out of 12 % GST bracket. Why was such an essential item was taxed in the first place esp when things like bindis, sindoor, kajal etc are already tax free? Victory at last because now SNs will reach every woman!

Acid attacks in India have become a major concern of late. As per ASFI (Acid Survivors and Women Welfare Foundation) there were 80 reported cases of acid attack in 2010 that in 2016 rose to 307, nearly a fourfold rise. 
This sketch is dedicated to all brave acid attack survivors.

Divided by States, United by Rape

The alarm bells are already ringing nonstop. 

With one rape every 30 minutes, Hindustan is fast turning into ‘Rapistan’. This concept sketch indicates that every woman, from a housewife to a corporate executive, a tribal woman to a modern city girl, even an old grandmother to a newborn, is constantly on the radar of perverts and sexual predators. Statistics reveal that in more than 90 % of the cases the victim was already well known to the predator and also that clothing of the victim (the bĂȘte noir of conservatives) had no role to play so every nook and corner of his country is unsafe.
The clock hands indicate predators too come from all age groups, from elderly men to young men and even juveniles and school going boys. Well, it strikes me that we, as a nation are-

“Divided by states, united by rape”

*This concept struck me this morning when I read about a few rape cases in today’s HT. In one case, a woman was raped and burnt alive inside a temple, which is outright horrendous. In another, a three year old was raped inside a well known school in Delhi-NCR. Through this sketch I am describing that women of all age groups and backgrounds are unsafe in India, which is extremely shameful.
