Bade Ache Lagte Hai... writer-director voices against rape

MUMBAI: Last December, the gruesome act of rape of a 23-year-old physiotherapy intern shook the entire country. People took to streets for days to protest against such crimes against women and to call for stricter laws. However, nothing has changed so far and the nation was shaken again when another innocent victim, a photo journalist from Mumbai, who was on job, also raped.


Like many others who have been vocal about such incidents, Writer-director Mitu Kumar, who is known for her creativity in some of the popular television shows like Kahani Ghar Ghar Kii, Kasamh Se, Saath Phere, Sarrkkar, Yahaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli and currently Pavitra Rishta & Bade Ache Lagte Hai... has created web series - Dil se…the echo from the hearts of women.


The series will represent the various facets of Indian women and to try to awaken the perpetrators of crime and help women take cognizance about the dangers that lie before them.


“The reason for this series is to create awareness, on gender sensitization. Why   wake up only in the face of the brutality of such gruesome incident ... we need to take a step when we are harassed and not wait... or turn a blind eye till it is too late. What is happening is appalling and has literally jolted us. Outraging a woman’s modesty begins across your street, at your bus stop, in the train you travel, in the office/place you work…stop it there…and rape will be history,” said Mitu Kumar.


The series which kick started on YouTube on gender sensitization has covered issues like eve teasing, marital rape, domestic violence, respect women, gender bias, dressing up women, stalking, harassment at workplace, rape victim, child molestation, dowry, and rights of women and gender stereotypes.
