My fingers still won't find their way as I try my level to be brave enough to reveal how my soul has been slaughtered, and my body used. I was a 9-year old girl, absolutely innocent and unaware of how atrocious a man could be. I used to take ...

I would like to share my story like a third person, maybe because I am poetic that way. I wish people understand that a no is a no and even though a women is not a virgin or maybe had done it before her consent matters. Atleast I wished he ...

Maybe I wanted it. But I was five.

I was between the ages of five and six, sometimes it's hard to remember. It happened for quite a while and in my head, time stopped making sense. All I can really remember is it happening over and over again. I used to live in Mumbai, in Andheri East. ...

I grew up in the NCR, in a middle-class family with 'sanskari' values. I wasn't really a nerd, but studies and sasu-bahu binging with mom occupied most of my time. My sister is a year elder to me, and we went to the same school. I must have been 11 ...
