  1. 1. DIYA TALE ANDHERA -”stop complaining start mending” Spread the word and spread the light a surge for enlightenment is every Indian’s fight Presentation by Saif Ali Rinku Sharma Talib Naushad Santosh Yadav Shivam Shrivastava
  2. 2. light burn enlighten To the abode of gods I am going, Leaving this egocentric and self centered world behind . Died; because I was brutally raped, Sad; that I could not escape. Mother and Father will see me lay in a coffin, Will miss my essence in the house; will cry often. I know mother, you’ll die every day, But you’ll hold back your tears; in every possible way. Nobody will be there to play with my brother, He will pretend normal; but will try to find me in others. My friends will stay near my corpse, Their eyes will be completely wetted with tear drops. They will not be able to see me again, Their faces will show a terrifying solitary pain. I am leaving them is all I can say, For I have fought a lot with my destiny, And now I feel pity for death; Who has been standing And begging me to accompany. Every scar, Every bruise Speaks of the torture And molestation I have been through; To this Egocentric and self centered world I bid adieu I bid adieu......#CONSTITUTION (article 14) Equality before law for women

Like all cliches, this one too has a grain of truth in it. At the heart of the contradiction stand Indian women: for it is true to say that they are among the most oppressed in the world, and it is equally true to say that they are among the most liberated, the most articulate and perhaps even the most free. Can these two realities be simultaneously true?” Urvashi Butalia #CONSTITUTION The State to make provision for securing just and humane conditions of work and for maternity relief (Article 42)
