Ride for Gender Freedom

While one face of the developing and “rapidly” progressing Indian society shows us women matching steps with men in every arena, from academics and research to sports and entertainment, there still remains a large disparity between various genders, deep rooted in every region and culture of this country. Moreover, the social constructs that burden a gender with expectations to behave in a certain way, leave us with limited acceptance for anyone who deviates from the defined gender roles.This…See More

Pedaling Against Acid Attacks

She hails from Siwan in Bihar and has just turned 16 this year. Inhuman souls who apparently liked Tuba have turned her face into a nightmare. She lost an eye, breathes through tiny tubes put in her nostril; and after a lot of struggle, doctors could make way for her to ingest liquids alone. A veil and her father are now inseparable from Tuba.…See More

My favourite ride so far:
The ride is still going on.
A bit about myself:
This Ride was started with a prime motive to highlight the gender-based violence, of which, women have been the receivers largely, and to bring to discussion the behaviour that is leading to such violence. Rakesh Kumar Singh, the rider who conceptualised and is spearheading the ride all alone so far, has cycled over 2000kms, starting from Chennai, Tamil Nadu. During the course of the Ride, Rakesh has been conducting discussions and workshops in educational institutions; puppet shows at villages and important landmarks in every town he crosses to initiate a discussion about gender freedom and violence against women. His cycle, his clothes, accessories and the Rainbow flag of the Ride are gradually gathering messages from people who identify with the idea of gender freedom and wish the Ride best. Some of you have been constantly following the ride as it traversed through Tamil Nadu and entered Kerala.
