Lost Indian Goddesses photo project

Your goddess Kali is naked but you ask your girlfriend to cover up, criticize that woman in crop top, make your daughter conscious of her body. Instead of conquering evil she is fighting herself.

You worship all-powerful Durga, but tell women to know their place.

You welcome Laxmi at your home, but frown upon bahu who’s making a career and expect your daughter to leave work after marriage.

You praise Saraswati but don’t consider that girls can be in a rock-band and art is not a serious enough profession for you.

You call women who drink indecent yet have a Varuni- goddess of wine in vedas.

Those goddesses you worship are walking daily among us, but you choose to humiliate, harass, rape, disrespect or simply discriminate them. It is time you open your eyes to the actual goddesses till it’s your head in Kali’s hand.
