“हर एक व्यक्ति के अपने अधिकार होते हैं. फिर चाहे वो लड़का हो या फिर लड़की. फिर क्यूँ हम एक लड़की से उसके जीने का, स्वतंत्रता का अधिकार छीनते हैं. भेदभाव करते हैं. आप सब ने जो अपना समूह बनाया है और उसमे जितनी भी आमदनी बचायी है उस पर आप का हक है.”

  • “घरेलू हिंसा है क्या?
  • क्या हम जनसुनवाई में आ सकते हैं?
  • वहां हम क्या सीधे सवाल जवाब कर सकते हैं?
