It is sad reality that I live in a country where in some states, it is safer to be a cow than a woman. If you are found buying, selling or possessing beef, you can be sentenced to 5 years in prison!! What??
It is a sad reality that many (not all) Indian men believe that there is no place for women in our country and that rape is inevitable if a woman chooses to walk outside after dark or in the company of a man who is not her father, brother or husband.
It is a sad reality that sharing my faith with my friends would be considered attempts at "forced conversion" by some in power. Mother Teresa was accused of "conversion"!!
It is a sad reality that "image" matters more than truth in my country.
"What will people say?"
