Honor Killings- The Murder of Love

It focuses on the increasing number of murders in the name of honor in some parts of India.

Love, the most pure feeling of the universe, is always considered to give happiness in a human being’s life. Not only humans, it is believed to be the central force of this universe because of which the living beings exist. It is a medicine which can drag a person from the verge of death and give him the hope of leading a blissful life. 

It’s so difficult to accept the killings due to love increasing day by day. Yes, it sounds ironic but the reason stands true if we dissect the situations. These murders are named as honor killings as to prevent the honors of the families. An honorable feeling is blamed for honor killings; it is so disgusting in itself. Couples marrying each other for the sake of love are strangled in the name of caste and community. It shows that caste is higher than love and even much higher than the love of the blood relation. Yes, the revenge is taken from one’s own daughter, sister or son. The mother who gives birth to the child strangles her if she dares to choose a man of her choice. Is this protection of honor or the revelation of the animal instincts hidden inside those demons? 

Leaving everything aside, the matter of discussion is the benefit if any of the parties achieve through this. The couple leaves forever, the parents lose their child and the incident only encourages more such occurrences in the society. How we can forget that the things hidden or restricted always create curiosity and violations. The need is to understand the changes in the society and make the young generation understand with love rather than by killing their love partners.

Beauty Contests...where is the Beauty?

It satirises the beauty contests for which the world spends a huge amount every year.

What is beauty? It's true that the first impression of a person on our mind decides whether she is the owner of beauty or not. And the impression is most of the times framed on the physical appearance before we even talk to the concerned person. But, is it justified to search for beauty with the tool which can't judge the heart of the person? If we take the broader perspective then each and every woman is beautiful who is wrapped with innocence and glows with emotions. And to bring an end to all the arguments related to beauty, there's a famous saying” Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”.

I am not against the base of physicality as it only forms the foundation of spirituality. But, when the women wearing the titles of Miss Universe, Miss. World takeover the definition of beauty, then it really hurts. There is one round of foot wears and swimsuits included in beauty contests. Tell me someone, how does that express the beauty of a woman in anyway? And even if I accept it for the convenience of the jury to let them choose the most beautiful woman easily, can such parameters justifies them for the crown of miss. Universe or world? Though they are tested on their communication skills and personalities but that doesn't clarify their selection.

A woman groomed for one year and having specialists for every single thing her mind can imagine will certainly have the beat assets. I want the jury and the whole world to think a little deeply about these contests. Every year the world and the nations spend thousands on such pageants but that doesn't help those suffering beauties who face all the miseries in their lives. Have the winners of the beauty contests ever thought about them?

Have they ever spent a single penny which they win through those beauty contests and on the basis of which they join film industries later? they would have been real beauties if they had ever thought about the thousands of innocent and really beautiful women suffering lonely in the world and would have ever spent even a single penny for them or for the sake of humanity.
