She was Fearless


Roaming at night on the empty streets, there is clearly no fear in her eyes. She is rather seeking for fear; she is blessed with the ability to hear the distress cries of any girl whose life is being threatened any moment and can reach her as her savior. She had promised herself that no other woman will have to go through what she did. She would hunt down each one of those men who were posing a threat to any woman and she will be the symbol of their power in this man’s world. She is blessed with the Goddess Kali herself who will not stand injustice against women; she is Shakti.

Turning your fear into your strength has to be the ultimate, I think. Thank you for sharing a piece of your childhood with us!
