Unheard voice of the lockdown

img_20200516_184010-01Let’s try guessing.
What do you think, the piece of cloth on her face is for? I know, after a cursory glance of this photo, you will guess it to be a mask. But if you look closely, that broad band is not a mask. That thing is being used to muffle ‘her’ voice in this lockdown-induced silence all across the world.

The resulted lockdown from COVID19 pandemic has led to rampant increase in the number of cases of domestic violence and crime against women. The rate of such reported incidents has been doubled in this lockdown period. I am sure there are many unreported.
It would not require a critical analysis to come to the conclusion that situation is grimmer now than what it was before because the victim now is confined with the aggressor/culprit/criminal 24/7. And it is rather difficult for a victim to get rid of this situation and get a succor of any kind in this lockdown situation. This has become more gruesome because people are finding it easiest way to release their frustration and stress . 

So, if you know someone who is suffering please reach out to them and extend possible support. There are many helplines for such cases. Help them with these numbers.
