My Padmavati: Rajasthan's shame and a community's misplaced valour (Comment: Special to IANS) 10.12.2017 All News-IANS Stories
My Padmavati is a four-year-old in rural India, possibly in the desert state of Rajasthan. She is lucky to be alive. She has escaped sex-selective abortion and female infanticide. But her fight has just begun. As she enters her teens she will face the outlawed menace of child marriage, dowry demands, domestic violence and honour killing (in case she dares to select her life partner).
