The Gang of Gulabi Girls

I was really surprised to watch them on Al Jazeera.

This group of women(most of them havnt had proper education) is becoming a threat to wife beating men, corrupt government officials and the likes.

Read about them here.

Isnt Sampat a more deserving candidate for the Padma Award than these actors ??

She might not be as glamourous but she is actually making a difference to the lives of hundreds of women who till now had no chance of a decent life.
And not only women, even men are admitting to be indebted by her actions against the corruption in the area. It was heartwarming to listen to the testimonials of these men.

The best part was the lathi classes that these women get. Its not really funny if you think about it. But what wouldnt i pay to watch a wife beater getting a taste of his own medicine..
That too in public .. lolz
