(How to be) An Indian Princess

I was disgusted with the way that girls, raped in India, were then blamed by their families and communities. I have also read some scholarly articles on the myths and beliefs of this idea. It was not written to entertain just to provoke thoughts and discussions – just like those that India itself is having, I suppose.

(How to be) An Indian Princess.

They’ll rape you, if you let them,
But sometimes let you live.
Sending you back home again
To those who won’t forgive.

They’ll kill you, if you let them.
Only bad girls act this way.
How dare they send you home
What will the neighbours say.
