This post is a satire on the farcical attitude that is prevalent towards gender oppression. 

“ Indian teenager wearing shorts in Assam was forced to cover her legs with a curtain at her exam centre “, the news read.

The focus was what was she wearing. The exam or the distance she had travelled to appear for the exam and her hard-work was negated in a jiffy. 

It was her clothing that got the authorities in a dilemma.

No one cared about her humiliation or her mental state as they gave her the curtain to cover up. 

This is not the first and definitely not the last of such incidents. Many go unreported. 

Clothing restrictions, especially for women and girls, are routinely reported from across India. Western outfits is considered a moral degradation of the youth.

In a heinous crime in July, 2021. A 17-year-old girl was allegedly beaten to death by members of her extended family in Uttar Pradesh. The tipping point was that they didn't approve of her wearing jeans.
