  • Editorial by Dr. Sourav Banerjee - Women's Resettlement Project - TMYS Review December 2021

    “A gender-equal society would be one where the word ‘gender’ does not exist: where everyone can be themselves.” - Gloria Steinem. The contemporary relevance of the above quotation by the famous American feminist journalist and social political activist of the late 1960s and early 1970s, establishes beyond doubt that gender inequality exists world over, with varying degrees of differences.

Look, now he even has the audacity to hide from me forever...” – This thought oscillates in my mind as a nightmare, over and over again. Why? Because we go back a long, long way! Our roots can be traced to our fathers’ time; our families have a bonding that extends from the early school premises to the film sets and beyond. Our fathers have been a legendary actor (Raj Kapoor) and a singer (Mukesh) – musical pair of their own golden …
