What motivated you to write about rape?
Rape is a heinous crime which has its faces either in a way of assault, battery or harassment. Every day many girls face this issue. Nowadays, India is not considered as a safe country for women. People commit a crime on the name of political, religious and emotional criteria. Rape is not just a crime it is a torment which a victim face, which cannot be even imagined. The reason which leads me to write about rape is to help somewhere to get rid of this crime, to protect our society, to aware the citizens the gravity of the situation.

During Pandemic there is a surge in rape cases due to especially Domestic Violence might be due to families staying indoors. Due to the massive amount of anxiety the women are becoming prey of men’s anger.
