In the dark world of patriarchy, where women are suppressed and beguiled, any ray of hope is like water for the barren land. This time, we speak about not just a ray, but a blast. A blast that will resonate in the ears of evil minds because not only women even the girls are rising and taking charge of the situation.
We would like to applaud and mention about a young girl, Priyanka Singh Roy of Birbhum District, West Bengal, a young martial arts student, who courageously fought three men and beat the daylight out of them when they tried to harass her in public.
The three men, namely, Amit Sahani, Dip Mandal and Bhaskar Mandal, who have now been arrested, are merely in their mid twenties. On seeing a young girl unaccompanied by any elder person, they thought they could have their way with her. After passing lewd comments, they tried to block her way and even tried to hold her hand.
Priyanka, who is a marital arts student, tried to warn them and asked them to back off, but when the situation went out of control, she justifiably, decided to thrash them. In no time, she overpowered the men and put them all to the ground.
On hearing commotion, by the time people gathered, they saw the true face of Indian women, strong, bold, and brave. The girl’s mother told Hindustan Times,
“My daughter is a keen student of martial arts. The youths were not aware of her skills. My daughter initially asked them to restrain themselves, but they paid no heed and continued with their lewd behaviour. Then she beat them up.”
Also, the Indian Actor Akshay Kumar, praised the young girl for her bravery. He tweeted,
Extremely happy to read this…a role model for so many. You go girl 👊🏻https://t.co/O2XUo0DgRE

From actors to police to her parents, everyone is feeling proud about this act of self defence.
In the face of terror, it is only wise to prepare our girls and women for any unforeseen disaster . We urge every mother and father to teach their daughters some form of self-defense. It is an important skill to master in the current times.
